The Dented Barrels Podcast
Summary: Geek Roundtable. Conversations are all nerd topics related to film, TV, comic books, video games, fandoms, and any other "off-topic" geekiness that ensues mostly through vigorous and spirited debate. Think of sitting around with your friends debating whether or not the DC cinematic universe is actually good--or if Rotten Tomatoes is only for people who can't think for themselves--and you'll be smack dab in the middle of the Dented Barrels podcast.
We went together for the first showing and we embargoed ourselves until we got in front of the microphones. What you are about to hear is raw reaction 30 minutes after leaving the theater. **Spoilers within** "It's not going to go the way you think!"
We talk Last Jedi one more time before our viewing! What we want to see, what we think we'll see, and a lot of stuff like that.
From the chumline, a listener asks "What is the best fictional science fiction worlds from film?". Plus, overrated heroines, Punisher reaction, and Last Jedi excitement.
