Under The Scope | Movie Review: The Big Sick

Jared and Shane are back with another summer movie review. And it’s a film both your Scope hosts picked to be one they most wanted to see.

The movie is The Big Sick, the autobiographical story of how comedian Kumail Nanjiani met his wife, Emily. But it’s not your typical love story (you might have gathered that by the title of the film.) 

Does this film have what it takes to be one of the best movies of the summer…and year? Well, take a gander at the review and find out!

The Scope The Big Sick review never underestimates Ray Romano.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: Wonder Woman

Hey, your favorite podcast is finally getting around to reviewing the big summer smash, Wonder Woman!

Better late than never, amirite?

Anyhoo, Jared, Shane, and a surprise special guest rap about the movie that finally gets the rebooted DC Comic movie universe back on track. So cozy up to your pod or vid cast player and soak in the love for this fine film.

The Scope Wonder Woman review didn’t see the invisible jet anywhere in this movie. But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t in it, does it?

Under The Scope | Movie Review: Alien: Covenant

Next up in the 2017 Scope Summer Movie season is Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott’s pseudo-sequel to the 2012 film, Prometheus.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterson, and Danny McBride(?!?), this movie has thrills, chills, and some xenomorph action. But does it have enough alien acid blood to truly entertain Jared and Shane? Feel free to check out the review and find out!

The Alien: Covenant review knows to never follow a crazy android into a basement full of alien eggs.

The Scope summer movie season of 2017 is officially in overdrive. And the movie that’s making it happen is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the eagerly awaited sequel to the 2014 surprise hit.

You owe it to The Scope. More importantly, you owe it to yourself.

Under The Scope | Movie Review: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

The 2017 Scope Summer movie season kicks off in full gear with the film, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. In this Guy Ritchie retelling of the famous knight story, we get a little GoT, LotR, Snatch, old school Conan the Barbarian, and the video game, Soul Caliber.

But will all of these inspirations combine in a way that makes a compelling movie? Well, sit down, belly up to the roundtable (not the nerd version) and let Jared and Shane tell you!

The Scope King Arthur: Legend of the Sword loves free hat giveaways at free screenings.
