The Midnight Drive-In: My Mom Is A Werewolf & My Best Friend Is A Vampire

We decide to take a look into what happens when those closest to us turn into monsters.  We check out My Mom Is A Werewolf and My Best Friend Is A Vampire.  Also we talk about completely selling out to the podcast gods, Insidious 4, and Doug talks some Hammer Horror.

Deadpool 2 Gets A New Release Date

It looks like Marvel’s Merc With A Mouth will be breaking the fourth wall a bit sooner than originally planned. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news Thursday of a not insignificant shake up for Fox’s summer lineup of Marvel properties.

First up is The Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool, announcing that it will be moving UP its release date by two weeks, from June 1st back to May 18th. The new release date will set Deadpool 2 squarely in the middle of an already crowded month of serious box office draws with Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 hitting the screen on May fourth and Solo: A Star Wars Story dropping on May 25th.

In a fairly shocking bit of news, The Channing Tatum lead Gambit has been pushed back from Feb. 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019. It was announced that in the light of Director Gore Vebinski’s recent exit from the long gestating X Flick this late in pre-production has sentscrambling to find a new director, realizing they are going to need a lot more time to turn in a decent movie.

And last, but in my opinion, most upsetting, Josh Boone’s horror themed take on The New Mutant’s is being moved back a whopping 10 months from its scheduled April release. To many this looks as if there may be serious problems with the movie, however, insiders speculate it is to avoid Mutant overlap in overseas markets.

Let us know what you think of these moves in the comments below.

 

CvS: The Final Countdown

Well, we finally made it to the end of Champs vs. Stars. This poor show got lost in the other Challenge mayhem, overlapping the end of Dirty Thirty and the beginning of Vendettas. So far, the Champs have swept the series. Will that continue, or will the Stars actually win something? This also ends our double-coverage of episodes, thankfully.

Vendettas: The Power of Three

What in the world is a troika? And how do you pronouce it? We finally get some details on how this game works, including the troika, the inquisition, and the Ring. But what is the grenade and how is it used? I guess we figure it out eventually.

The Midnight Drive-In: Robot Jox & Robot Wars

It’s the future and in the future we do everything with Robots!  We’re talking about the Charles Band films Robot Jox and Robot Wars!  Also we chat about Black Mirror, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, and Annabelle: Creation.  Thumbs up fist bump!

Matt The Radar Tech Makes His Way To Star Wars Battlefront II

Its been, objectively, almost a decade since SNL has been at the top of its game, but now that the show is back in the lime light, a popular sketch may be soon considered “canon” in the Star Wars Universe.

Adam Driver appeared in an Undercover Boss sketch as Kylo Ren, infiltrating Star Killer Base to find out what the crew really think of him during his hosting gig last year. The sketch became so popular that now you can take his “Matt the Radar Tech” character into the massively popular Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Star Wars HQ has released footage of the orange vest’ed, blonde haired Kylo Ren as Matt tearing his way through enemies on different maps.

If you want to take Matt into action yourself, you can can get the mod  from GameTSF here, and the Fire Saber one from DeathsStrokeYT at this link. Check out the reveal video below.

Animaniacs Get A New Season Thanks To Hulu

90’s kids rejoice, Warner Bros. and Hulu have come together to revive one of the most beloved cartoon franchises of all time.

On Thursday, Hulu announced that they were partnering with Steven  Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment and Warner Brothers to bring back The Animaniacs in 2020.

With a two-season, straight-to-series order, Steven Spielberg will return as executive producer of the series, with Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series, and Amblin Television co-presidents Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank also serving as executive producers.

For those of us not in the know, The Animaniacs was a Spielberg produced return to the classic Warner Brothers/Bugs Bunny style of animation shorts and comedy. Animaniacs was itself a spin off of the wildly successful Tiny Toon Adventures and itself spun-out Pinky and the Brain and the criminally underrated Freakazoid.

“I am so pleased and proud that Animaniacs will have a home at Hulu,” said Spielberg. “Together with Warner Bros., we look to bring new audiences and longtime fans into this wild world of Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. I am also excited that the full library of Animaniacs and Tiny Toon Adventures episodes are included in the deal.”

Hulu will also start streaming the entire back catalog of Animaniacs which debuted in 1993 and set the record for most Daytime Emmy Awards in the field of Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for any animated series, winning three times.

 

CvS: Sink, Purge, Repeat

Our coverage of Champs vs. Stars has been demoted to a short aftershow in the wake of Vendettas. This week we cover the purge in the swimming challenge and at least some of the Challengers who are on their way to the final next week.

Vendettas: When Worlds Collide

It’s a super-ultra long episode of Challenged to accompany the premiere of Vendettas. We love seeing midlife crisis Brad, as well as the new Challengers from other random shows in the US and UK. We have
to intro a bunch of newbies to this insane game and see how the vets fit into the equation.

CvS: Flagpoles and False Hopes

The Champs are heading for a shutout clean sweep, but can the Stars stop them? Are alliances strong enough to withstand a vote that may not go as intended? This episode is all about strength. Who is the strongest player, but more importantly, the strongest team?

Watching Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time on a Broke Television

Christmas has ended and the Doctor Who Christmas special is over… I been waiting all day to watch Twice Upon a Time, after Christmas dinner I went home sat down turned on the television a couple minutes later the screen went dark and a loud pop came from it, the Tv died. I went into panic mode how am I gonna watch Doctor Who tonight? A few phone calls and hours later I got myself a mini TV. What a Christmas it has been!

I liked Twice Upon a Time, it wasn’t a adventure story but it filled my DW needs. This was Peter Capaldi last run as the Twelfth Doctor, his whole run is hit and miss for me. Series nine was his strongest. I may pickup series ten because I really enjoyed Pearl Mackie and glad she returned tonight. Another companion to show up was Clara (Jenna Coleman) her role was small, in and out that was fine by me, Twelve now remembers her.

We also got the regeneration scene for the Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker). I’m really excited to watch her run and with a new show runner in Chris Chibnall I’m hoping he brings something new to DW without forgetting the past. It’s been said Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor will be a hard reboot for the series like Eccleston in 2005. Now it’s a waiting game for Doctor Who to return to TV.

The Midnight Drive-In: Santa’s Slay & Better Watch Out

Merry Christmas!  If you’re reading this then you got super sick of your family and their bullshit and decided to put in your earbuds and be whisked away to The Midnight Drive-In where there are plenty of Ho Ho Ho’s and the eggnog has been swapped out for straight whiskey.  For your Christmas enjoyment we’re talking about two holiday themed movies with Santa’s Slay starring Goooooooldberg, and the new release Better Watch Out.

Also we chat about some other things we watched like How To Build A Time Machine, Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders, get some feedback for The Last Horrorcast, and at the end of the show Noah gets challenged to a bet that is really just a lose/lose situation.

Throwdown for the Cause: Yorkville

Challenged was fortunate enough to meet all the Challengers in Yorkville at the first event for Throwdown for the Cause. In this episode we talk about the event and our experiences in meeting Bananas, Cara Maria, Brad, Kelly Anne, Britni, Derrick, Zach, Jenna and Kyle. The Throwdown tour is coming to a town near you, so we definitely recommend going.

CvS: Playing Me for the Foos

ZACH ATTACK IS BACK. We have a special guest host standing up for Bananas during the conflict with Bananas vs. Wes. The group plays human foosball and of course can’t do anything without major conflicts.

The Midnight Drive-In: Jack Frost & Jack Frost 2

We’re kicking off the Christmas season with two movies about killer snowmen.  Well really they are one franchise about killer snowmen.  We talk about Jack Frost and Jack Frost 2.  Also Noah tells us how he gets into nerd arguments with strangers, we talk about Super Dark Times, The Punisher, and the news of Disney buying 21st Century Fox.

Interview: Kelly Anne and Britni

We attended the Throwdown for the Cause in Yorkville, Illinois and had the fortune of meeting many Challengers. Unfortunately we had little luck in getting interviews, but Kelly Anne and Britni were nice enough to spend a little time chatting with us. Thank you to Kelly Anne and Britni! We did meet some other Challengers and put a bug in their ears for interviews, so we’ll follow up and try to get more interviews later.

Geek Nerdery: The Last Jedi

I’m joined by both of my co-horts from The Midnight Drive-In as we relish in our geek love for Star Wars in talking about The Last Jedi.  This entire conversation is a spoiler review so be warned before turning on the podcast.
