Welcome back to Vertical Viewing! This week on the podcast, the OG crew Mike, Red and Scott meet in the Nostromo Lounge and discuss the absolutely fantastic (and surprisingly BitCoin-filled) teen retro-comedy DOPE, why ROCHE LIMIT is a totally insane new graphic novel that all the Vertical Readers should get into, the 1968 classic ROSEMARY'S BABY on potentially being the very first modern horror film, Ernest Cline's latest geek culture slathered novel ARMADA and a roller coaster ride of fan expectations, Mike's thoughts on the extremely short lived ABC sitcom MIXOLOGY, Scott drones on yet again about how Peter Berg's BATTLESHIP is an extremely competent film adaptation of something a silly as a board game, Robert Rodriquez signs on to direct the long-gestating BATTLE ANGEL ALITA for producer James Cameron, and much, much more before our featured review of the harrowing Netflix Original film BEASTS OF NO NATION from writer, director and cinematographer Cary Joji Fukunaga.

So gather up what little courage your eight-year-old body can muster, try to kick your brown-brown addiction, snuff out the shining rays of the sun and let's see if we can escape the clutches of a bloodthirsty African warlord before we become unrecognizable beasts; never to return to child things.
