Two podcasts this month? We're on fire!
Annihilation Spoiler Free Review

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. If you are like us, you’ve been to the movies a number of times in the last few months. If you are also like us, on none of those visits did you happen to catch that new Tom Cruise crapfest. And you also probably haven’t seen Annihilation. And that’s a dang shame. We desperately wanted to see Annihilation in the theater, but instead, due to snow storms, illness, and the plethora of other great comic book and Sci-Fi movies we saw instead, we waited until the streaming release of this movie. We thought it was fascinating and visually stunning. If you’re curious about why we felt this way and want to hear more about this Sci-Fi thriller, then check out our spoiler free review!

Length 20 minutes.

Why You Should Go See Solo!

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. This week’s episode presents you with our take on why you should go and see the underperforming newest Star Wars spin off, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Is it Star Wars fatigue? Is it over saturation of genre movies (thanks Avengers)? Weather? Lack of Porgs? Or were you secretly hoping someone would invent time travel in order for actual young Harrison Ford to play this role? For some reason, this movie isn’t doing as well as other Star Wars titles, but it deserves a shot (who shot first? That’s right- you know who). We liked it! It was fun! Give our podcast 20 minutes to try to convince you why you should go and see the younger versions of Han, Chewie, and Lando showing off their gambling and piloting skills on the big screen!

Length 21 minutes.

Someone will DIE on this week's podcast, spoiler alert, it's not us:
Avengers Infinity War: Who Will DIE?

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. A movie that is 165 minutes long and has 60 characters... so, that means each character gets what, like less than 3 minutes of screen time each?! Aw man! That’s not enough! Especially because when it comes to the Avengers, we kinda feel like it’s never enough time at the end of the movie! Also, this might be the last time we see some of these guys- cause we all know that not everyone is going to make it to the end of this movie. Join us this week as we go character by character, speculating on who we think might make it to Avengers 4 ... and who won’t.

Get Out Review

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. Is it science fiction? Kinda. Is it horror? Yes, indeed. Is it a comedy? Oh, hell no! If you have been floating untethered in space for the last few months, you might not know that Jordan Peele, best known for his work on the brilliant sketch comedy show "Key and Peele," won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for the super sinister, “Get Out.” It was well deserved. We loved all 100 minutes of watching creepy, rich, entitled jerks doing messed up stuff in their fancy countryside estate. We were so excited for Peele’s win as a first time nominee, we wanted to share with you our favorite moments and situations from this awesome psychological thriller. This podcast contains major spoilers, so we hope you’ve watched the movie before listening. If not, you should just GET OUT!

But here on STAF, we're going to break down our favorite romantic locations in science fiction, horror, and fantasy. That field on Naboo didn't have any sand! The sharks don't swim on the beach on beautiful Amity Island! What's that naked planet called in Star Trek again? And then, there is that romantic cruise ship pool from Passengers (best thing about that movie)....in space! We hope to help you bring back that lovin’ feeling with your S.O. - or heck even yourself - by sharing our preferred spicy locations from some great films and TV shows!

Our Take on President Trump Answering Sci-Fi Related Questions

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. This week, we take a silly look at what could happen if our commander and thief (seems a more appropriate title) held a press conference in which he had to answer questions from the press based on science fiction scenarios. How would Trump handle the Kaiju? What would his reaction be to the destruction of his precious Starkiller base? What would he say about attacks from the Blob or allegations that his family had been replaced by pod people? From initiating the hunger games in only the blue states to dealing with artificially intelligent robots, we'll ask all these questions and provide our humorous take on how 45 would respond. This podcast is loosely based on both a Saturday Night Live sketch in which Baldwin’s version of Trump deals with an alien invasion and the recent paid dare made to a reporter to ask Trump about his feeling on the situation in Wakanda. We suspect Trump would advise you to use the fortune you’ve made mining coal to take a vacation to Mar-A-Lago! But… since it's 2018, and coal isn't a thing anymore, you can stay home instead and let us amuse you!!

We will also share our thoughts on The Predator reboot, the Han Solo spin off, and the new Maze Runner movie. 2018 isn't all revisiting worlds we already know, though, there are plenty of originals we'll talk about too - such as Ready Player One, Annihilation, and the creepy looking A Quiet Place.

Quit Your Kvetching! Our Take on the Biggest Gripes Against The Last Jedi!

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. Have we been hacked by the Russians again? But this time, instead of swinging an election, they're moving on to another vulnerable target... Star Wars movies! Low ratings by entitled Internet users won't stop our science/evidence based arguments against the major complaints people are making about this diverse movie. We'll keep this description spoiler free, but was it really that gross that Luke was drinking **** straight from the ****?! C’mon people- it has to come from somewhere! We’ll talk logistics of space chases, missing persons, actions made or not made, and share our reactions regarding the fates of certain integral characters. We feel like a lot of this kvetching is because opinions are like Bantha bums- everyone has one and most of them stink! So, ignore the complaints (many of which are somehow grammatically worse than Trump tweets), and check out our podcast!

Hell yeah- this trailer is amazing! We'll talk about our timeline theories, including our thoughts on how the Hulk ended up at Doctor Strange’s crib.

Evil Hela tossing her Dad’s trophies around and taunting her brothers! Drunken Valkyrie flirting with Banner! Double-crossing Loki putting on corny plays for Asgardians- starring Matt Damon! That last one shouldn't be a shocker- Matt Damon will do anything for a buck! I mean, he bought a Zoo!

Join the crew on ten out of this world adventures, ranging from an outbreak of a hillbilly zombie virus in their trailer park, to that time Sarah held a classy dinner party for the crew. Wait, is that all that happened? Nope, an inter-dimensional rift opens and the crew gets a glimpse of what Les is doing in a bunch of alternate realities. Spoiler alert, it’s hilarious. Oh, and make sure you watch out for Les’s maniacal little robot friend. All this and more is in store for you in Volume 6!

Why Does It Suck To Go To The Movies?

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. Does it suck going to the movies? Or do the movies just suck? This summer had terrible box office numbers and the worst attendance in 25 years! But why? Was it the robots that turn into cars for the 5th time? Johnny Depp as a pirate AGAIN? Spider Man rebooted for the 3rd time? Or is it that more interesting movies just don't get enough advertising? Or maybe that bad early reviews kept people from taking a chance on a film? Or are people just finding it easier (and cheaper) to stay home on the sofa and watch movies on HBO/Netflix/Hulu/onDemand/etc.? This week, we take a look at movies that came out from June to August of this year and talk about why going to the movies was a total bummer this summer.

Life - The Void - A Cure For Wellness Reviews

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. Though it may sound like one long title for a crazy movie or metal concept album, sadly it's neither of these things. This week, we're offering reviews of these three random horror movies that we recently watched, because whatever, we do what we want. “Life” is a space horror film, set in a very roomy version of the International Space Station, where you can scream all you want, but no one will hear you. “The Void” is set in a creepy abandoned hospital and totally exceeded our expectations. Finally, we review the “The Cure for Wellness” which is also set in a secluded, lonely place- but this time, it’s a spa for richers. If you wondered why no one you know saw this movie, we are happy to tell you several reasons why it’s good that they didn’t waste their money that way. We stay spoiler free for the movies that we think are worth your time.

Join us this week, as we highlight 16 terrible places from Science Fiction films and TV Shows that you won’t want your kid to write about visiting in their September back to school essay!

Two updates this week:
Prime Day Is Dumb Contest 2017
Remember folks, tomorrow is Prime Day! The day where Amazon decides to make some shelf space in their warehouses by attempting to give you, the consumer, some “great” deals on worthless garbage. Like last year, we're giving out ONE FREE SIGNED PRISON DAD BOOK to the person who can find the worst Prime Day 2017 deal. Rules are as follows, you must (1) like our page on Facebook; and (2) post a link to the product on our page (so we can verify that it's not photoshopped). We will be accepting submissions as long as Prime Day is going on, bonus points if the items are related to our books at all (Squirrels, UFOs, Sasquatch, booze, etc). Thanks and we’ll let you know who won within two days of the close of Prime Day! There is no purchase necessary to enter or win, this is not a game of chance.
Spider-Man Homecoming Review

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. Remember when MCU movies were almost as rare as the gems in the Infinity Gauntlet? Like, when there was maybe one addition a year? Now, it seems like every time we sneeze there's a new one. And, yes, the last time Jeff sneezed was in May when "Guardians" came out. In this episode of Silly Talks, we're reviewing the new Spider Man movie- but watch out because this review is loaded with SPOILERS! What did you miss? What references did we see to other movies? Who showed up for fun cameos? We don't want to say to much in the description here, but our Spider Senses were tingling after this one and we may even be hearing wedding bells for two beloved characters in the near future. That’s right, it’s Spidey and Deadpool! Gotcha! Get ready for a fun adventure and be sure to let us know if you agree with our review on Facebook or prisondad.com.

We're back...with a twist!
M Night Shyamalan Needs To Stop

Click Here to listen to our newest podcast. I have a secret, I see a lot of bad movies. Everyone knows his name, few can pronounce it. The famed director of “The Sixth Sense” appears every couple of months and releases another gimmicky SciFi/Horror movie into world. As they have been more laughable or obnoxiously awful than good entertainment, how is he still able to make new films? Join us this week as we break down all his major movies: all of the twists, the plots, and the filmmaker’s HUGE ego! Spoiler alert! We will ruin all of the endings, so if you haven’t seen any of his films and still want to (why, for the love of God, why?!), you may want to skip this one.

Length 40 minutes.
