Episode 134 - Mindhunter S2
Mindhunter Season 2 Review
As most of you know, we are huge David Fincher fans and could not wait for season one to drop last year. It was a huge creative success, so we were waiting with bated breath as to how season two would shake out.
Season two focused heavily on the Atlanta child murders in the late 70s early 80s and moved away from being interview focused. Was that the right move or should it have been more of the same?
Listen to hear our take.
Episode 133 - Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Once Upon a Tim in Hollywood Review
We are big Tarantino fans here at Nerd Nuptial but that doesn't mean we're fans of everything he's ever done. "Classic" Tarantino is a mainstay in our household. So when we were walking into the theater for this one, we were hoping for a return to form. Thankfully, we got that and a whole lot more.
We start the episode with Fleabag and Stranger Things 3. What did you think of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?
Episode 132 - Spider-Man: Far From Home
Spider-Man: Far From Home Review
In the latest MCU Spider-Man adventure, we travel beyond New York to several different European locations. Parker is still mourning the death of his mentor and struggling with the passing of the torch. The movie asks the question of whether or not Parker can handle it and Parker has no problem reminding the audience that he's only 16.
In this episode, we review the strengths and weaknesses of this second solo Spidey outing for the MCU. Does it deliver the joy of Homecoming or does it stretch itself too thin in order to grow the character?
Episode 131 - Black Mirror S5
Black Mirror Season 5, Fight Club, and Wonder Woman 5K
We pack a lot of episode in this week trying to make up for lost time. We start the show with how The Girl ran a Wonder Woman themed 5k. Then we move onto how we got to see Fight Club in 35mm at The Music Box downtown (and how it might not ever happen again for anyone due to the Disney buyout).
Finally, we review the latest season of Black Mirror. Tekken sex, Polar Bears, Topher Grace, mouthy Alexa. Season 5 has it all.
Episode 130 - Disney+ and Star Wars
Live-action Star Wars shows coming to a streaming box near you!
"The Mandalorian" and Rogue One Prequel are coming to Disney+ in the near future. The first of their kind and we at Nerd Nuptial are very excited. A rumored third live-action show is coming as well ... but what could it be?
In this episode, we discuss what we'd like to see and what we hope they stay away from. Knights of the Old Republic? Rebels prequel? Some completely original? Listen to find out.
Episode 129 - Avengers: Endgame Review
Avengers: Endgame Review
We're a week late with the rest of the world but hopefully, that just gives more people to not get spoiled by our review. We give our spoiler-free impressions first and then, of course, give a warning before we get into spoiler territory.
We loved Infinity War, got tingles when the movie ended, so Endgame had big Thanos sized shoes to fill. Did it live up to the hype or did it fizzle out like Doctor Strange's charisma? Listen to hear our review.
We Stan The Girl & Tristan
Good Commentary and Great Chemistry
I've been listening to Nerd Nuptial for about a year, and I love it. Tristan and The Girl have great chemistry which makes listening to them discuss the things they love a joy.
This podcast is one of my favorites to listen too. I love your detailed reviews and hearing about your family. My wife and I are going through the same struggles with IVF and it’s nice to hear someone talk about it. Thanks for the hard work.
