Promare (2019)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Studio Trigger's first theatrical animated film: Promare. Go see it. It makes Redline look positively tame. It's Studio Trigger: The Anime.

In the news, the Lupin III CG trailer looks hot, Carole & Tuesday is utterly fantastic so far, Rie Kugimiya will be a guest at Anime NYC, and the Vic thing is basically over. We've also reviewed a lot of anime over the last 15 or so years of GeekNights. So, here are just the reviews, without the other stuff, on youtube and Patreon! We'll try to get a new one up every week.

The Matrix (1999)

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the 1999 film The Matrix. In the news, nobody wins the Pokémon T-Shirt Contest we discussed on Tuesday, a bill to ban games that abuse children with loot boxes or pay-to-win has bipartisan support in the senate, and I'm Gonna Have Me Some Fun is one of our favorite movies. Also PAX West 4-day badges return, and you should be on HIGH ALERT starting Tuesday.

Us (2019)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the fantastic 2019 horror film Us. In the news, after some bike fails and overheating, this amazing Super Mario Commodore 64 port is taken down, Star Trek Voyager is better than you remember, and GeekNights formally endorses Elizabeth Warren for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Tonight on GeekNights we review the triumph of animation that is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Go see it immediately if you haven't already. In the news, the New York International Children's Film Festival is on, with some notable anime like Okko's Inn, and Penguin Highway, and Vic Mignogna is actually facing some consequences for his behavior.

We've already reviewed the entire current season of anime! Also our Nostalgia vs Game Design and The 40 Games You Must Play panels are up on youtube!

Mirai (2018)

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Mamoru Hosoda's wonderful Mirai (未来のミライ). It's a film about how the imagination of children and the stories they absorb growing up shape them and those around them. It also has the best house in the history of anime. In the news, beware PIN 20, Evangelion is coming to Netflix, Gen Fukunaga is salty about it, and we'll be live at MAGFest and PAX South!

Night is Short, Walk on Girl

Tonight on GeekNights, we review Masaaki Yuasa's phenomenal Night Is Short, Walk On Girl. Just go see it. Don't even wait to listen to our review.

In the news, Hanebado is bad, The Dragon Prince is good, Assassination Classroom is all right, Adventure Time's ending was perfect, Bojack Horseman continues to be excellent, Care Bears looks like it will be ultra cute, DuckTales (2017) is fantastic, and SPACE JAM IS GETTING A SEQUEL WITH LEBRON!

Isle of Dogs

Tonight on a special GeekNights Rymily Review, Rym and Emily consider Wes Anderson's new Isle of Dogs. It's thoroughly enjoyable, gritty and beautiful, but has a number of problems.
