Under The Scope | Movie Review: The Hateful Eight (70mm Roadshow)

Cowboys and Quentin. That’s a combo we can all get behind. And that’s exactly what you’ll do when you see Mr. Tarantino’s latest opus, The Hateful Eight.

In this post Civil War drama, Kurt Russell, Sam Jackson, and Jennifer Jason Leigh play a group of mean folk willing to do mean things to each other. Trust me, any more description would not do this tense, smartly-written film justice.

That being said, what do Jared and Shane think of this picture? And does the 70mm presentation add anything to the mix? Is it possible your Scope hosts give The Hateful Eight an unprecedented eight Scope stars? Why don’t you listen to, or even better, watch their on the road review and find out?

The Scope The Hateful Eight review is not as long as the film.

Episode 221: Good Better Best: Star Wars Edition

Can you sense the excitement? In just a few days, Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally will be out in the wild.

In celebration of this huge event, episode 221 of The Scope features an all Star Wars version of the latest Scopesation, Good, Better, Best. Jared, Adam, and Shane talk about aliens, vehicles, blasters, and very little prequel trilogy. That’s cool, right?

Talk about merging the best aspects of Star Wars with the world’s best podcast! It’s a not-to-be-missed edition of The Scope if there ever was one.

So fire up your podcaster, bake up some Wookie cookies, and get ready for a ton of Star Wars talk…talk that will hold you over until December 18th (or 17th if you are cool. And we know you are!)

The Scope episode 221 is not strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: In the Heart of the Sea

Thor and a mean, old, giant white whale. That’s what Ron Howard’s dealing with in his latest film, In the Heart of the Sea.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, this movie tells the story that inspired Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. So yes, there’s a lot of harpoons, blubber, and dried lips. (If you see the flick, you’ll know what that means.)

But the real question is if the Scope’s Jared and Shane bought into this historical ocean tale or they thought the story just took on too much water. Why don’t you check out this latest movie review and find out?

The Scope In the Heart of the Sea review won’t climb into a whale carcass to get every drop of oil.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: Sisters

In an interesting attempt at counter-programming, the movie studio behind the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler comedy, Sisters, has decided to release the film the same day as Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Luckily for the people behind Sisters, your Scope hosts had a chance to catch a sneak preview of the film. (Because we all know which film Jared and Shane would pick on December 18th.)

And, as luck would have it, your Scope hosts liked this little film about two 40-something siblings going back to throw one last party in their childhood home.

But how much did they enjoy it? Why don’t you take a few minutes, listen to (or watch) the latest movie review from The Scope. After hearing what the guys had to say, you just might have another movie to check out after you watch Episode VII.

The Scope Sisters review is amazed by John Cena’s massive arms and neck tattoo.

Episode 219: Good Better Best

In this latest edition of The Scope (219, if you are keeping track) Jared, Adam, and Shane unleash a new segment on the unsuspecting masses. It’s called Good Better Best and it’s full of lists, ranking, and justifications. And, if you are lucky, a rousing debate over the value of a good curly fry.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper Scope show without a lot of disgusting pimple-popping video talk. And trust us: there’s probably too much of that.

So get to watching. Or listening. And vomiting after the first segment of the show. Gross.

The Scope episode 219 grew up in an Arby’s ghetto with a neighbor named Horace Smithelmeizer.

Episode 217: High Heckler Alert

Hey, it’s the 217th edition of the best kept secret in the podcasting business.

This time around, Shane talks about his drama in a Target parking lot, Adam discusses half dinosaur/half car hybrids, and Jared gets all on a bully pulpit. And all this happens while Adams puts in another great news-reading performance.

All in all, it’s a great show. You’d be a fool not to check it out.

The Scope episode 217 wants to invest in Beijing Sun Seven Stars Culture.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: Spectre

The world’s sexiest male spy is back and he’s ready to take care of business. (And, no, we’re not talking about Scope show host Adam.)

Yes, because the masses demanded it, James Bond is back in his 431st movie (we did that research without even Googling) titled, Spectre.

In this latest adventure, Daniel Craig’s James Bond is trying to suss out a shadowy organization determined to ruin his day. (Not to mention ruining the day of anyone who hasn’t seen any of the other Craig Bond films. These all tie together, baby.)

So your pals, Jared and Shane, definitely not super spies, take on the task of reviewing the first big budget blockbuster of the Fall/Winter season. Will the guys declare it “Double Oh Awesome” or will they think the movie is just “James Blah?” Feel free to check out the latest and greatest Scope movie review and find out!

The Scope Spectre review is confused with the letter “e” being at the end. Oh so British.
