(0:00 – 1:05:08) Review: Power Rangers – Dustin and Jonn and guests Cloud and Daft join together to dawn our power suits and get ready to take on this movie full force with our MegaZords all in the name of friendship! Well, not really, but it did warrant a good discussion (specially when Daft showed up 30 minutes later). Power Rangers was a film Daft hated to love, and Dustin saw it as a movie he loved to hate. There are spoilers afoot in breaking down scenes that were just stupid to begin with, as well as how twitter won’t shut up about it being this pro-ELGEBETE diverse
crap fest. This warrants other Haim Saban discussions and other stuff, including Dustin trying to get away from a devoted fan rambling off his Power Rangers love to him at a Hot Topic.
(1:05:08 – 1:06:18) Promo: Just slipping in a quick Anime Cart and RightStuf! promo for you guys to drop all your dough on their websites. (Happening RIGHT NOW, you can get a FREE Naruto Headband with any purchase from animecart.com. Even though in a previous episode I stated about dumb teens going there to get headbands, I just got one, because its FREE! so that makes me feel a little better about getting one to act like a “highly functioning autistic ‘narutard'”, and you should too. Use our discount, it does work! – Dustin)
(1:06:18 – 1:55:15) Review: Ghost in the Shell – Just as Daft was more forgiving of Power Rangers, Dustin was even more so with Ghost in the Shell, despite the twitter anti-whitewashing hate machine taking credit that they movie failed. Its been over a year since we talked about Ghost in the Shell, and if you want our 1995 review of that, it can be found in this giant link in this text. Although not a perfect film, Dustin explains his reason why this film shouldn’t have gotten the specific negative attention it got when they’re other factors wrong with the movie, but it was mostly complaining about the haters of this film online. It’s more got to Dustin trying to defend the film for the things it did right, which was more than what the internet was going to give it credit for. Also, mics are being thrown down in anger, just saying. Dustin also wrote an article for The Odyssey about this film, so give that a read.
(1:55:15 – 2:18:35) Closing Remarks: There is still more discussion on haters and the internet, as well Cloud talking a little about Anime Boston, Dustin hating that UNC won the NCAA tourney, Ghost from TCR going sober, The People v. Jontron, are pets racists?, and finding your brothers anime items in storage to claim as your own. All this and much more in this weeks episode. Also fair warning, Dustin mic is super loud for some reason, but that will be fixed next episode.

2015 is over, and now we move onto the year of 2016. 2015 was a pretty fun year from the podcast group, especially when Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out to end it all. So this years podcast special is about our hosts giving their take on the recent flick from a galaxy far away galaxy…
(0:00 – 1:11:15 ) Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Review – In previous podcast episodes, Dustin and Jonn seemed a bit skeptical to how this new Star Wars film will turn out. With both parties seeing the film along with past podcast guest Daft, the three sit down and break down the film to their understanding. So yes, that means we will spoil this film, so go see it before you hear this podcast. They also talk about the Star Wars series in general, how people don’t know the origins of Good Burger, what it was like to see Star Wars now than the prequel films, fan theories to the latest Star Wars film, our thoughts on the Iron Man movies, Dustin thoughts on the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film, and much more.
(1:11:15 – 1:51:20 ) Yuletide Closing Remarks – All three hosts talk about what they did and got for Christmas, along with Daft experience with seeing the Hateful Eight, The last Hunger Games movie, how Right Stuf hooked us up, Bennett the Sage Bubblegum Crisis review rant, Dustin using Twitch, the Nickelodeon Slam Block, and much more.
