Welcome to the What's Our Verdict Podcast, where we fashion ourselves cinematic Judge and Jury. Our names are JJ Crowder, Javier Ortiz, Mattson Heiner and Ian Anderson.
Do you ever find yourself wondering if you should invest the time, money or both in a movie? We're here to help you answer that question. Each week on Monday we put a movie on trial, discuss the facts, pass judgment and let you know Our Verdict.
Come follow us on social media on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter all @whatsourverdict. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us at our website www.whatsourverdict.com.
Godzilla vs Kong (2021)
Once humanity's savior, Godzilla destroys a city seemingly unprovoked. A podcaster and his two biggest fans begin searching for answers. Meanwhile, Kong is being held and studied on skull island. Apex, a very powerful technology company is looking for ways to stop Godzilla and believes Kong could be the key.
Javier has squad goals for the podcast fans. Ian can't reconcile why he likes and dislikes this movie. JJ has a hard time with stupid humans. Everyone has a hard time rating this movie.

The Accountant (2016)
Ben Affleck stars as Chris Wolf, The Accountant, and no we aren't talking about H & R Block. Chris Wolf is the accountant that crime lords, mob leaders, and cartels go to for their accounting needs. Having such dangerous clientele, Chris takes a job for a large corporation missing millions of dollars and he uncovers much more than missing money.
Ian makes some strong points. Javier wonders about body armor and flash bang grenades. JJ talks theories.
Justice League: The Snyder Cut (2021)
Mattson rants and rants and rants some more about aspect ration choices. Javier may want to live on Themyscira. JJ can't deal with bad awkward runners. Ian makes some strong points.
Coming 2 America (2021)
The king has died and now Prince Akeem must step into his father's shoes as the king of Zamunda. A neighboring leader threatens war if a marriage between the two families isn't formed. King Akeem learns of his bastard son living in America and decides to bring his son back to Africa as a prince to marry into the diplomatic marriage
JJ defends against the naysayers and questions Mattson's movie watching skills. Ian brings a new to the franchise perspective and wonders if there is such a thing as movie watching skills. Mattson talks having bad days and bad sofa cushions.
Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)
The Druun are turning everyone in the lands of Kumandra to stone. The mystic dragons do all they can to stop these relentless enemies, but are turned to stone as well. The final dragon, Sisu, creates a magical sphere banishing the Druun. However, when the dragons are gone the people of Kumandra begin to fight over which nation should posess the magical sphere that Sisu created. The nation of Heart are the protectors of the sphere and the chief of the Heart nation believes Kumandra can come together again and invites the other four nations to come together at Heart. Fang nation uses the opprotunity to try and steal the sphere breaking it instead and releasing the Druun once again. Raya then sets off to find the last dragon and save Kumandra.
JJ gets on his soap box and praises the message of this movie. Mattson actually wishes the movies was a little longer. Ian misses the typical Disney animated humor.
Jurassic Park (1993)
If you don't know the plot of Jurassic Park, what prehistoric rock have you been living under?! It's a timeless tale of men bringing back ancient dinosaurs and then heavily regretting that decision while being chomped to little bits. This is the movie that started it all. John Hammond brings a group to his new dinosaur theme park to enjoy one of the most amazing displays of modern science. If you haven't guessed by now, things go very, very wrong.
Javier's bias is showing. Ian cracks all of the jokes. JJ just wants to know how these Dinosaurs are so clean. Mattson plays the trumpet...kind of.

So many laughs
Stumbled upon this the other day, SOOOOO many laughs! I quite honestly cannot stop giggling, Ian needs to talk more, his calm demeanor really seems to balance out the louder voices (no names, but we all know who that is.) can’t wait to go back and listen to some earlier episodes.
Like the best ever
Super fun podcast. 5s across the board for everyone except Javier. He gets a 2 and a half which is good! Right in the middle of the road.
Mattson is my uncle, so I came to check his podcast show out. It’s actually pretty good, and y’all should definitely listen to it.
