A podcast dedicated to all the stuff you love - movies, television, comics, and really anything else considered "geeky." But really probably mostly talking TV and movies. And every year we do "Fans Not Experts Movie Month"
SUBSCRIBE TO STRANGER DANGER!
Happy 4th of July everybody! Today is the day! Today Stranger Things is back with season 3! I can't wait to watch it and podcast about it. The plan is to watch the ENTIRE season first. Then I am going to go back and watch each episode on a weekly basis and put out new Stranger Danger episodes every Friday covering these episodes. Look for a new episode of Stranger Things to premiere in your ears on July 12th!
Enjoy the season everybody, I am almost POSITIVE I will!
It's a great feeling when you realize you've saved the BEST movie for last. Excellent!
Directed by:Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman,
Starring: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Hailee Steinfeld, Mahershala Ali
Hell of a lot of fun. Very happy I watched this early this morning (whilst visiting family). Hope this leads to more stories in the world of Shazam. Oh, and...SHAZAM!
Directed by: David F. Sandberg
Starring: Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer
Is it crazy to say that after six movies, they're just hitting their stride now? Love this series!
Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie
Starring: Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames
Not great. Probably the weakest in the Conjuring franchise, but there were some good scares, some good acting, and some great visuals. I found parts to enjoy and have fun with.
Directed by: Corin Hardy
Starring: Taissa Farmiga, Demián Bichir, Jonas Bloquet, Bonnie Aarons
I really enjoyed this movie and LOVED how they tied it into the first "Annabelle."
Directed by: David F. Sandberg
Starring: Anthony LaPaglia,
Talitha Eliana Bateman, Stephanie Sigman, Lulu Wilson
In real life are these stories real or hoaxes? Or maybe people really believe that these things are happening when they might not be...Either way, I like how these movies just treat them as real - and I really like Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga's performances.
Directed by: James Wan
Starring: Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Madison Wolfe, Frances O'Connor
31 years ago my dad took me and my brother to see the original Child's Play. Today I did something almost as nice for my dad by NOT bringing him to this movie that also claims to be called "Child's Play" - there were some things in it I enjoyed, but I honestly might've liked it more had they just had some generic robot toy and NOT Chucky.
Directed by: Lars Klevberg
Starring: Aubrey Plaza, Mark Hamill, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry
It wasn't as bad as all the reviews (and the box office) made it seem. But it wasn't all that great either. Big "meh" at best.
Directed by: Simon Kinberg
Starring: James McAvoy, Sophie Turner, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence
This movie was exactly what I thought it would be - and that is okay by me....NOW SHOUT AT THE DEVIL!!!!
Directed by: Jeff Tremaine
Starring: Douglas Booth, Machine Gun Kelly, Daniel Webber, Iwan Rheon
Definitely not as good as the first one - but I still enjoyed it. And to be honest, anything that keeps me in the Wizarding World is okay by me!
Directed by: David Yates
Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, Katherine Waterston
Way, way, way, WAY, WAY better than Mission Impossible II. This one - I actually enjoyed!
Directed by: J.J. Abrams
Starring: Tom Cruise, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ving Rhames, Michelle Monaghan
If I had one wish - it would be for John Wick to be in every movie from now on. Even if it's just for a quick 5-minute killing spree, I'll take it!
Directed by: Chad Stahleski
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry, Ian McShane, Laurence Fishburne
Yes it's basically Groundhog Day with a horror twist - but they know it and they have fun with it. So do I.
Directed by: Christopher Landon
Starring: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine
Wow. What a well acted, humorous, brutal, bat-shit crazy, awesome movie. Glad I FINALLY watched it.
Directed by: S. Craig Zahler
Starring: Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins
Shane Black? A Predator? A Bigger Predator? What could possibly go wrong? This movie - that's what...
Directed by: Shane Black
Starring: Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown
This was a fun one. Scary, but fun! I am glad I finally saw it and am ready to continue on in the franchise!
Directed by: James Wan
Starring: Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor
I am very excited to finally watch all of the Mission: Impossible movies. I saw the first one years ago and rewatched in preparation for this month! I am also excited to get this one out of the way - because it was not very good.
Directed by: John Woo
Starring: Tom Cruise, Dougray Scott, Thandie Newton, Ving Rhames
Finally. Finally. Finally. I, and the 4 other people in theater with me, are the last people in the world to finally see Avengers: Endgame. And guess what? I loved it. The audio is NOT great on this one - but the movie was.
Directed by: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson
I went into this movie knowing it was supposed to be good, but not over-excited for it. By the time it was over I was overly-excited for more Brie Larson and more Captain Marvel. Really, really enjoyed this one - and now FINALLY I am ready to be 100% caught up on Marvel movies....
Directed by: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck
Starring: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law
Imagine if you will - a SyFy original monster movie with a big budget. Ladies and Gentlemen - I give you "The Meg." I wanted to like this so much more than I did. I found it somewhat enjoyable but.....yet also not so enjoyable. So yeah, I ramble a lot in this episode...
Directed by: Jon Turteltaub
Starring: Jason Statham, Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson
Do you like boxing? Do you like training montages? Are you or do you know anyone who considers themselves cool? Then Creed II is the movie for you! The follow up to Rocky, Rocky II, Rocky III, Rocky IV, Rocky V, Rocky Balboa, and Creed - Creed II is a great follow up to the first one, while also bringing back a major villain from Rocky IV and also Flavor Flav's ex-girlfriend. All jokes aside, I loved it.
Directed by: Steven Caple Jr.
Starring: Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Dolph Lundgren
Tom Hardy is a great actor. Venom is a cool, iconic looking comic book character. Can they come together to make a great movie? No. Can they come together to make a fun movie. Somewhat. Stuff happened. Special Effects fought each other. Aliens not named ALF had one liner jokes. This is Day 3 of movie month - THIS is Venom.
Directed by: Ruben Fleischer
Starring: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed
I have yearned for a follow up to Unbreakable since the first time I saw it. Now it is finally here - and yet I waited until now to see it. Why is that? Was it as great as I hoped? Was it good? Download and listen to find out all those answers and MORE! Well maybe not more, but at least that.
Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan
Starring: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson

Dear "Game of Thrones" fans,
I enjoyed the final episode of the series that aired this evening. Please don't create an online petition in an attempt to band my podcast....Actually, please do. I could use the exposure.
Just a fan. Not an expert.
Holy Hell! What an episode! This makes the battle against the Night King look like...well, the appetizer it really was leading up to this...I don't even want to call it a battle. It was a massacre. So of course I had to talk about it. If you disagree, hit me up twitter at @GeekMentality!
What? A new podcast episode? But it's not June yet! I just finished the EPIC Game of Thrones episode "The Long Night" and I had to turn on my phone's recorder and talk about it on my drive home from my friend's house.
It's mostly me just ranting and trying to remember all the amazing stuff I just saw - so basically like every other podcast episode I do. Anyway, see you in June and follow me on twitter at @GeekMentality!
Some movies, Mike just isn't going to <a href="http://fansnotexperts.com/moviemonth">wait until June</a> to see. The new <a href="https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1477834/" target="_blank">Aquaman</a> movie is one of those for sure. Listen to what this handsome young stallion has to say about the latest DC Comics movie that he saw earlier today!
It's the final night of CW's "ElseWorlds" Crossover event and, while I enjoyed it a lot and loved seeing Superman fight an Evil Superman - the excitement really came in the last moments and the realization of what is to come next year!!!
It's night 1 of CW's 2018 Crossover Event - ELSEWORLDS - and Mike decided to turn on the recorder app on his phone and talk about it. Somewhat. He got distracted by some animal running through his yard. He's convince it was either a fox, and coyote, or a mountain lion. Probably a fox. Don't listen unless you're okay being spoiled.
