Movie Bears Podcast

Last week was an important milestone in movie lore. Yep, October 21st, 2015 is the date in the 'future' that Doc, Marty and Jennifer visited by way of the flying Delorean, kicking off chaos and shenanigans that they'd spend the next 2 hours of movie time trying to fix. To commemorate this occasion, the MBP guys go back to 'Back To The Future Part 2' for a fun discussion about how Zemekis & Co's 1989 vision of the future holds up.

Also on this week's episode, we give our honest reviews of the new 'Jem and The Holograms' movie. Is it as awful as some critics and fans of the 1990's cartoon series think it is? Have a listen to what we think...

We discuss the new trailer that dropped this week to kick off what might be the most successful advance ticket sales for any movie...ever. There's also a new poster, some boycott news and other fun stuff we dive into.  In addition, yes we do have a full review / discussion about Guillermo Del Toro's latest film, 'Crimson Peak'. Do we think it's a gothic romance success? Listen in to the gory goings on!
