How would Queen Amidala fix Star Wars? Well, you'll find out if you listen (and that question will make a lot more sense). We're talking about how we'd fix (or improve) some of our favorite geek movies in the assembly today. Also, Bobby Blakey (aka the Mighty Movie Master) attempts to provide some clarity and opinion to the latest Ant-Man casting news .
Along the way we discuss some of the latest geek news including the new release date for Batman vs. Superman (and the great pic to the right that goes with it), some Star Wars prequel storylines that Lucas came up with back in 1977, some details that make the Gotham TV series sound better, writers for a possible Agent Carter series and news about a cool 1960s series that's finally coming to DVD and Blu-ray.
All this, plus Merchman gives his review of the movie, Her. Join us for the latest episode. The Queen wishes it.
Today you will be visited by three geeks who want to talk about Christmas past, present and future. You will also be visited by a voice named GANNIN who dabbles in Merry Christmas alarms and high-tech sleigh advancements. Your day will be filled with candy canes, cookies and turrets that fire Christmas colors. In other words...welcome to the Assembly of Geeks holiday show.
Today we look back on the fall TV season that was. Have opinions changed about Agents of SHIELD? Are there new show's we're still watching? Meanwhile, there's a new Terminator TV series in the works and we have to wonder if it can last. We discuss Disney's hint about the possibility of Star Wars on Netflix, therelease date for the next Apes movie and how Batman fans can indulge in the holidays.
We take time to think about our holidays of past and present and decided which was geekier. We'll also suggest three great geek gifts for this year's holiday season.
Finally we'll highlight our holiday movie line-ups and Fangirl announces a new kickstarter project - Athena's Daughters.
Admiral Eighties is finally getting to audition for Star Wars...but is it good enough? And is GANNIN a good audition partner? We discuss what 80s geek movies still hold up today.
In GANNIN Control Central, we confirm the news that there will no 20th Century Fox fanfare when the next Star Wars movie comes out, we discuss Kevin Smith's comments about Ben Affleck's Batsuit, we find out about three separate Peter Pan movies that are in development and learn what people are already saying about the new Hunger Games movie.
In the assembly meeting we take a look at 50 sequels and 57 remakes and discuss which ones are good and bad ideas. The assembly votes on the best time to produce a remake.
