Under The Scope | Movie Review: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

In a smart move of counter programming, Fox Searchlight Pictures has a new summer movie on the horizon without superheroes, robots, dinosaurs, or explosions.

A recent Sundance favorite, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, tells the story of an unlikely friendship, the nastiness of leukemia, and the difficulties of high school.

All while Ultron destroys the city. Or not.

Could a summer movie (without any action at all) hold the short attention spans of both Jared and Shane? Well, instead of wondering about that question eternally, feel free to check out the latest Scope movie review and find out for yourselves. Honestly, you just owe it to yourselves, Scope fans!

The Scope Me and Earl and the Dying Girl movie review wouldn’t eat dried cuttlefish, even on a dare.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: Jurassic World

People just love dinosaurs. And theme parks. And movies. So put them all together…what’s that spell?

Jurassic Park.

But that was twenty years ago. The future is now, people.  Jurassic World is where its at. In this sequel to the beloved Spielberg classic, the dinosaur island is back up and running, with more animals and attractions than ever! (Won’t these greedy scientists and shareholders EVER learn?)

Luckily, you’ve got a rugged Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and a couple of plucky kids in the mix to make it interesting.

But was it interesting enough to capture the imaginations of Jared, Shane, and Audrey? Well, why don’t you check out the latest movie review of summer and find out!

The Scope Jurassic World movie review can fix a 23 year old car in a matter of minutes, too.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: Spy

Let’s be honest: Melissa McCarthy prior movie work has run both hot and cold with your Scope crew. But she, along with writer/director Paul Feig, are back to give it another go with Spy.

In this send up of James Bond, Austin Powers, and Inspector Clouseau, McCarthy stars as a secret agent who’s way out of her league. But she’s determined to crack the case, no matter comedically-painful it might be.

But the real story is if Jared and Shane will even crack a smile during this eagerly-anticipated summer comedy.

So check out the latest review from your dedicated Scope hosts, won’t you?

The Scope Spy movie review may get really good about half way through.

Episode 207: Joe Nobody and the Beast Machine

In this very special episode of The Scope, Jared, Adam, and Shane catch up with FOTS* Luke Ski. Luke’s been up to some interesting shenanigans lately, and who’s better than your Scope hosts to get all the details? Answer: NO ONE.

*Friend of the Show

If you listen carefully to the interview, you’ll learn about Luke’s Toys “R” Us days, his cross country trip to California, and his new job at The Cartoon Network. It’s a great story that demands your full attention. So get to it, won’t you?

The Scope Episode 207 is on an all soda diet and totally into binge watching old TV shows.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: San Andreas

It wouldn’t be The Scope summer movie season without a good, old-fashioned disaster film. In this year of 2015, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will bring it to you in the form of San Andreas, a Michael Bay-ish film that just may destroy the entire California coast.

So buckle up and get ready for multiple earthquakes, a big old tsunami, a pair of charming British brothers, drowning, The Rock piloting over land and sea and air, and plenty of family melodrama right in the middle of the biggest natural disaster ever to strike North America.

It’s crazy. It’s chaotic. It’s another appropriate word that starts with the letter, “C.” But you’ll have to watch (or listen to) the review from Jared and Shane to see if it’s Scopeworthy. So get to it, Scope fans. the fate of California depends on it.

It’s been a while since The Scope San Andreas movie review got to second base.

Episode 206: Endobros and Rice Noodles

In the latest episode of The Scope, Adam and Shane give some interesting and detailed stories about what’s going on with them. One talks about beautiful and life-changing events in glorious Hawaii. The other talks about medical procedures involving large cameras being shoved down his throat. (Guess which story is more fun?) All the while, Jared wonders if he was really ever into Helloween.

It’s a deeply personal episode that might change the world. Or, at the very least, it’ll teach you about Hawaiian eats. So that’s something.

The Scope episode 206 learned nothing from Joe Versus the Volcano.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: Mad Max: Fury Road

He was a cop. He was Mel Gibson. Now he’s a road warrior and Tom Hardy. But George Miller is still the creative force behind Mad Max: Fury Road, and that may make all the difference when you roam his insane wasteland.
