With a new year, comes a number of new movies.  Each year it seems the blockbusters come earlier and earlier, and this March there are a number of new movies that have both Ryan and Will’s interest.  From action packed reboots to super hero comedy gold, this week we preview the best coming out over the next three months.

Part 1 – Intro

To kick of the show, Will gave a review of “La La Land” and what he thinks of the potential best picture at the Oscar.  Admitting not to be a musical fan, Will gave a unbiased opinion despite his disliking the singing and dancing

Will also gave his two cents on “No Man’s Sky”.  Both Ryan and Will agree that the movie has some great features, but in the end falls short.

Ryan went into a newer series on National Geographic called “Mars” created by Ron Howard.  It explores the potential first manned mission from Earth to Mars, along with attempts to colonize the red planet.
