On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, we reunite the family as Dan joins us to discuss everything from trailers to the newest The Fast and Furious movie. We promise never to turn our backs on this family, unless you disrespect Pacific Rim, then Mark will politely ask you to ‘cash him ousside’.
We open the show by updating you on our lives over the past few weeks, and we’ve done a lot of adulting; Dan is in the process of selling a house, Mark just leased a new car, and Anthony learned how to install a light switch. These situations run the spectrum from painless to frustrating, and only one of them included an electric shock.
Our opening topic deals with the many trailers that have been released in the last few weeks, and what impact they had on our interest level. The discussion starts with the first teaser for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, and we transition into the new trailers from Marvel and DC. We also may or may not have made a plea for Chris Hemsworth and/or The Rock to officiate Dan’s upcoming wedding. Let’s just say the trailers topic had a few tangents.
Next we take a quick spin, or drift if you will, by Video Game Corner. Mark discusses his opinions on the restrictive Persona Five streaming rules that came down from Atlus, and why it is bad for the exposure of the game. He also quickly discusses the recently released specs for the Xbox Scorpio, which made the system almost a full-step past the current Xbox One.
We finish the episode talking about family, and not just any family, but Vin Diesel, The Rock and the rest of the Fast and Furious crew. This can only mean that Mark went to the theater, saw The Fate of the Furious and needed to talk about it. While it didn’t surpass the last three movies, this installment did enough to make it an enjoyable time. In the rankings of Fast and Furious movies, the 8th one ranks about the middle of the pack, and if you’re curious of Mark’s rankings, stay till the end and you’ll get the definitive breakdown of the series, and an extremely hot take.
