This week the Regular Joes open the cover on The Book of Boba Fett. Seriously Disney, this should be a slam Dunk (a sports ball term for something easy). Whether you are one of the legions of fans who think Boba Fett is the end all be all of Star Wars characters, or you think Boba Fett deserved to get accidentally knocked into a Sarlac pit where he (seemingly) died like a bitch, you had to at least give the show a look. Three episodes in and the Regular Joes have reached a consensus. Though to somewhat different degrees. One thing is for certain, this one probably won’t be uniting Star Wars...

While Tod is sometimes wrong in his speculations he is seldom as off the mark as when he predicted the Regular Joes 2021 Year End Review would “go quickly.” Thus, with the regular hosts and Irregular Joes Derryl DePriest and Brian Mix joining in, the whole team takes a look back at the highs and lows of the year that was. They all like a lot of the same stuff, right? This should be easy, right? Well in this bonus length outing we find out what Derryl really thinks, that Barry will make most any argument to shoehorn something he likes into a given category, that on average Dave mentions Tom...

As we start 2022 with a clean slate and high hopes for a better times ahead, this week we relive the joys of the holiday season with the Regular Joes annual holiday gift exchange. The Joes are notoriously some of the most difficult people to buy gifts for, so listen in as they tear gift wrap and rustle tissue paper as they try to surprise each other. After the gift giving, they discuss the season finale of Marvel’s holiday series, Hawkeye. It’s a double shot of holiday fun to start 2022. Happy New Year, and as always, thanks for listening!

Spider-Man No Way Home, the fourth, and most anticipated of the Marvel Cinematic Universe offerings this year is out and … just, Wow! Despite COVID concerns, and the widely predicted demise of the theater industry, the newest Spidey film is breaking box office records. It also seems to be a critical success, winning over both audiences and reviewers. So I guess that is still possible too. With anticipation, and speculation, at an all-time high this film had a high bar to clear, or perhaps swing over. Did it meet the Regular Joes expectations? Seriously, we can’t even fake suspense over...

Ghostbusters is high up on the Regular Joes list of favorite films. From the very first teaser for Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters Afterlife the Joes have been waiting with varying degrees of optimism about what would ultimately be delivered. After, again, COVID related delays, the film is finally here. To cut to the chase, critics hate it, the Joes love it, and if Ghostbusters holds a special place in your heart you should too. Note: there will be SPOILERS. So maybe watch first, listen later. Next up the team take a look at Season 4 of Star Trek: Discovery. Which, somewhat, bizarrely, they...

This past week Disney+ launched their fourth live action Marvel Cinematic Universe based show. WandaVision was very good but uneven, Falcon and the Winter Soldier was kind of a meandering, missed opportunity and Loki seemed to be going somewhere . . . but then didn’t. So, does Hawkeye finally hit the target? The answer is a clear maybe, sort of, we’ll see. Two episodes in opinions are mixed. There’s a lot of speculation about what we might see, or want to see. But, as we well know, the powers that be at Disney have their own ideas, and agendas, to pursue. While we are on the MCU subject...

Once you’ve done something twenty-five times getting it right should be pretty much a walk in the park. The Eternals, the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe offering may indicate otherwise. Over the last dozen years Marvel has gone back to the well several times to pull relatively obscure characters such as Ant-Man and The Guardians of the Galaxy to elevate them to high profile hits. As one of the later creations of the legendary Jack Kirby (Captain America, The Fantastic Four etc, etc.) The Eternals certainly have the DNA to be a hit. But why does this adaptation seem so, well . . . Meh? The...

While there are very few certainties in life, it’s pretty darn likely that if there’s a Rhode Island Comic Con the Regular Joes will be there. It’s also a given that as long as there’s a sofa in the Omni Providence lobby the Joes will be making yet another run at their traditional guerrilla talk show. Some years they find many guests, in others it just ends up being a small group of good friends talking about the stuff that inspires, excites and unites them. This year Barry, Dave and Tod are again joined by Brian and Derryl as they discuss who they met, what they found, and why the...

The Regular Joes take time out from packing for their (mostly) annual pilgrimage to the Rhode Island Comic Con to check out the recent bumper crop of Trailers and Teasers for, The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+, The Beatles: Get Back on Apple +, House of the Dragon coming to HBO, Sandman and Ozark season 3 on Netflix, and over on Amazon Prime, there’s The Wheel of Time and The Witcher season 2. And, to quote the late pitchman Billy Mays, “But wait, there’s more!” Also, coming soonish to a theater near you, there’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Morbius, Moonfall, Lightyear and The Batman....

Directed by Denis Villeneuve, Dune (2021) is the third effort to adapt Frank Herbert’s landmark 1965 novel. After the first cinematic attempt 1984 (too compressed) and a later mini-series 2000 (faithful but slow) failed to do justice to the source material a different approach was needed. Is it possible to spoil a 55 year old story? Let’s just say the execution this time around was clearly ambitious in regard to production … if not in scope. Halloween is a favorite holiday for the Regular Joe’s. This episode they take time out to talk about some of their favorite costumes in the...
