The boys watch 2006's Superman Returns, directed by Bryan Singer, starring Brandon Routh and Kevin Spacey. Well executed in most respects, and a damn sight better than the current interpretation of the Man of Steel, the film suffers from being over-long and underwhelming. Routh is a fantastic stand-in for Christopher Reeve, and Spacey channels Hackman's Luthor while making it all his own. Unfortunately, a 21st century reimagining of Hackman-Luthor's real estate scheme from the 1978 film fails to leave an impression, especially given the runtime the climax demands. 

Also in this episode, Allen thinks people that didn't like Alien Covenant are lying to themselves about what the Alien franchise is, and the guys discuss Zack Snyder's departure from the Justice League production.

This episode was recorded before the death of Sir Roger Moore, hence the lack of mention. But fully expect a good talk and remembrance on the next episode.

This week, the boys are joined again by Lacey Day to tackle Brett Ratner's gut-punch to the X-franchise, X-Men: The Last Stand. Nobody really likes the movie, but nobody really hates it as bad as they remembered hating it. Everyone is dressed poorly and nobody bothers acting. A poor take on the Dark Phoenix Saga, poorly written and even worse directing, the film doesn't justify its own existence.

Also in this episode, Allen tries to convince everyone to watch Samurai Gourmet, everyone wonders why they're even bothering to make this Mummy movie and why they think they have to have a shared Universal Monsters universe. Paul McCartney gets hate for being a pirate, and Allen Hates Aziz Ansari.

The boys tackle the Wachowski-produced V for Vendetta and get probably overly political, for maybe understandable reasons given the current political climate and the contents of the film. Are there laughs? Sure.

The guys welcome back Lacey Day as they all fail to have the patience to watch the overlong, unasked for Zorro sequel.
