163 – Is Netflix Burying Movies by Not Releasing Them in Theaters?

idontfeelathome-melanielynskey-handsup

This week, David is back, so Katey, Patches, and Da7e can all talk about Fate of the Furious, finally. They begin by discussing the whole movie, which easily took #1 at the global box office this weekend (spoilers, maybe? Depending on if there are "spoilers" for this franchise). Then, after a mini segment on the return of Veep to HBO, everyone makes David defend his post arguing Netflix should release movies into theaters.

A GAME OF THRONES PODCAST THAT IS TALKING ABOUT OTHER GREAT POP CULTURE DURING THE OFF SEASON

With Joanna Robinson from Vanity Fair, Dave Gonzales, and Neil Miller from Film School Rejects!

Welcome to another off season tour episode of A STORM OF SPOILERS!

This week, Neil is phoning in from Park City Utah, so we dedicate the usual Game of Thrones News Segment to Sundance news so Neil can address the Netflix invasion, a couple of good rom-com movies, and a non-spoiler discussion of Get Out. Then, Dave and Joanna loop back around to the comic book movie news and television stuff they've missed. Most importantly, Joanna tries to describe FX's new X-series Legion and how it both does and doesn't have mutants. Then, right at the end in a tangent, Dave talks about the very end of Split and doesn't think it's a big deal because the movie is already out, but he spoils Joanna.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED FOR SPLIT – Skip to the Outro (01:02:52) once you hear the WARNING around 58 MINUTES IN
