The Weekly Stuff #158 - Grab Bag! News, Movie Reviews, Remembering Gene Wilder, Titanfall 2 Beta, and No Man's Sky Kerfuffles

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.

In one of the grab-baggiest grab-bag episodes we ever done, we recount two weeks of news and experience, starting with the death of Gene Wilder, a beloved actor who has certainly done plenty to shape both of our perceptions of cinema. Jonathan and Sean each talk about some video games they’ve been playing – including Hitman, Stardew Valley, and The Banner Saga – while Jonathan reviews some recent (and less-recent) movies, including Don’t Breathe, Southside with You, Hell or High Water, and The Nice Guys. For our first big topic, we break down the recent Titanfall 2 beta, which basically took a great foundation from Titanfall 1, threw it out the window, and replaced it with nothing but confusion and boredom. And after recapping some news, we finish the podcast with a second topic, in which we use the recent No Man’s Sky kerfuffles to discuss the media landscape at large.
