Geek Revolution Radio #172 Blockbuster Season in Review

It seems like there are two seasons in film…Blockbuster season and Oscars season.  When one starts and the other ends often blends is difficult to tell, but it’s pretty clear when your in Blockbuster season.  Usually associated with summer, but sometimes crawling into spring.  We look back and some of the best in our Blockbuster season in review for 2017.

summer movie review

Part 1 – Intro – Star Wars Rebels & other animated shows

To kick off the show, Will and Ryan discussed the Star Wars Rebels, and how good it really is.  With a few moments of cheesiness, Star Wars Rebels is truly a great show.  With so much story to unfold, Rebels really dives into much of the Star Wars mythology.  The story is captivating and quite entertaining.  Will just wishes his daughter could be more into it.  Are you excited for season 4?

The show Will’s daughter is really in to is Troll Hunter on Netflix.  Will goes into the show a little and details why it’s worth a watch.
