This week we chat about the new Rogue One trailer, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (please), the new Ghostbusters possibly not getting a sequel, No Man’s Sky and Kevin Conroy’s opinion of Batman’s murderous nature in Batman V Superman.

Screentime – Double Feature of Suicide Squad & Stranger Things

This week we did a Screentime two-parter. First Adam and Ian review and discuss Suicide Squad, the latest DC cinematic universe film from David Ayer and Warner Brothers. We go through what we thought of the film, what we didn’t like and try desperately to think of something we did like about it. We do go fairly spoiler heavy, so if you care about having the film spoiled then skip from 18:20-44:15.

In the second part we were joined by our pal Kirsty Flower, who plays Dariah on our D&D podcast Total Reroll, and the three of us chatted about Stranger Things. We mainly did this because we knew we were going to be very negative about Suicide Squad, and wanted to talk about something much more positive! We went into what we liked about the show and try desperately to think of something we didn’t like. We don’t go nearly as far into spoiler territory for this part, but there are minor spoilers so if you haven’t watched it yet (and you should) then skip from 44:15-61:43.

For the first instalment of Screentime (please, if you can think of a better title let us know!) we are reviewing and discussing Star Trek: Beyond, the 3rd instalment of the rebooted Star Trek movie universe.

We go into what we thought of the film, and what worked and didn’t work (or who didn’t work) for us.
