Silly Talks About Science Fiction is a show for Science Fiction fans with a sense of humor. Each week we will spend 30-60 minutes taking a light hearted approach to our favorite movies/shows/books as well as talk about the writing process.
Annihilation Spoiler Free Review
If you are like us, you’ve been to the movies a number of times in the last few months. If you are also like us, on none of those visits did you happen to catch that new Tom Cruise crapfest. And you also probably haven’t seen Annihilation. And that’s a dang shame. We desperately wanted to see Annihilation in the theater, but instead, due to snow storms, illness, and the plethora of other great comic book and Sci-Fi movies we saw instead, we waited until the streaming release of this movie. We thought it was fascinating and visually stunning. If you’re curious about why we felt this way and want to hear more about this Sci-Fi thriller, then check out our spoiler free review!
Why You Should Go See Solo!
This week’s episode presents you with our take on why you should go and see the underperforming newest Star Wars spin off, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Is it Star Wars fatigue? Is it over saturation of genre movies (thanks Avengers)? Weather? Lack of Porgs? Or were you secretly hoping someone would invent time travel in order for actual young Harrison Ford to play this role? For some reason, this movie isn’t doing as well as other Star Wars titles, but it deserves a shot (who shot first? That’s right- you know who). We liked it! It was fun! Give our podcast 20 minutes to try to convince you why you should go and see the younger versions of Han, Chewie, and Lando showing off their gambling and piloting skills on the big screen!
Avengers Infinity War: Who Will DIE?
A movie that is 165 minutes long and has 60 characters... so, that means each character gets what, like less than 3 minutes of screen time each?! Aw man! That’s not enough! Especially because when it comes to the Avengers, we kinda feel like it’s never enough time at the end of the movie! Also, this might be the last time we see some of these guys- cause we all know that not everyone is going to make it to the end of this movie. Join us this week as we go character by character, speculating on who we think might make it to Avengers 4 ... and who won’t.
SEX With Superheroes!
Admit it, you’ve thought about it! So have we and there is no shame here at Silly Talks! This week, we play an impromptu game where we ask the other person to describe their date night with some of our favorite, and least favorite, super-powered lovers. Would Deadites spoil a fun night with Ash Williams? How would you try to get aquatinted with Hela? Would a night with Thor be romantic or end in bloodshed? Does Jessica Jones even date? Find out what we think about having a night out with those characters and more on this week's episode.
Get Out Review
Is it science fiction? Kinda. Is it horror? Yes, indeed. Is it a comedy? Oh, hell no! If you have been floating untethered in space for the last few months, you might not know that Jordan Peele, best known for his work on the brilliant sketch comedy show "Key and Peele," won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for the super sinister, “Get Out.” It was well deserved. We loved all 100 minutes of watching creepy, rich, entitled jerks doing messed up stuff in their fancy countryside estate. We were so excited for Peele’s win as a first time nominee, we wanted to share with you our favorite moments and situations from this awesome psychological thriller. This podcast contains major spoilers, so we hope you’ve watched the movie before listening. If not, you should just GET OUT!

Vended along side these guys at a comic book show and checked out their show! Great and funny coverage of all different types of nerd-content. Downloaded every episode so I could go through them
Funny and sometimes even informative! Jeff and Cristin have a wicked good chemistry and this make this a very enjoyable podcast. In podcast #1, you can even hear Bark Vader in the background! ;-)
More fun than 10 puppies!
What a great podcast! Witty, Funny, Inviting, & Highly Entertaining!
