This week on the podcast, Tim, Mike, Red and Scott meet in the blacked out Nostromo lounge and discuss the merits of negotiating ideologies with a time bomb in the 1974 micro-budget comedy sci-fi DARK STAR from John Carpenter, Peter Serafinowicz takes a break from making Boards of Canada DJ mixes to take on the role of our title hero in THE TICK TV revival, Ben Affleck revealed he has written a "standalone" BATMAN script and we try to decipher exactly how 'alone' this project will be from the DC movie universe, we go on a Nantucket sleigh ride with Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth in the Moby-Dick inspiration IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, Tim finally sits down for a little session of STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON and comes out a satisfied customer, Red shares a look into the insanely detailed stop-motion world of PES and we consider the idea of a cooking show using only inedible items, Mike throws more shade on Leo's recent Best Actor Oscar win after seeing Reddie Edmayne just crush it in the DANISH GIRL from director Tom Hooper, and much, much more before our featured review of MIDNIGHT SPECIAL from director Jeff Nichols. Everybody put your swim goggles on for this one.
