Porch Piracy Is An Epidemic - Knives Out, JoJo Rabbit,

Welcome to Dissecting This Fiction! It's episode 9 in, not that one, but we technically did it first! So come join along as my Co-host (Jessica) and I (Steven) go over the latest in movies, tv shows, and games.

What's On The Exam Table?

In gaming, Facebook tries to beat the competition. The internet builds a case against Capcom REmake3 conspiracy. There’s a new real time strategy game coming  out, but you will have to wait until 2020 and that’s going to bug some people. Nintendo is making a new identity for Mario. A Wii dev kit tells the story of a forgotten hero or was it a menace? Jessica decides to create life in Cells to Singularity and Steven talks about his experience with Days Gone. Don’t worry, he didn’t lose track of time.

In Television, we got caught by surprise with a hilarious show. It was just a promo though, so Curb Your Enthusiasm. A fantasy show gets early screening positivity. We’ll give you a hint, it isn’t Game of Thrones. Rian Johnson trolls The Last Jedi haters, but we are all okay with that. Disney wants to find a new generation of Jedi on their streaming service. We watched the first four episodes of Flash and I have to say we did it quite fast. We accidentally watched what we thought was a short film, turned cable commercial, turned car commercial, turned back into a short film by yours truly. In the end, it turns out it was just a dose of nostalgia for the holidays.

In movies, we get our first look at the long awaited Black Widow movie. It’s being called a teaser, but it’s certainly a trailer. Fans of Alita Battle Angel are being escorted to Disney for suggestions. The CGI in Cats has been altered since the initial trailer. That will surely satisfy the internet mob, right!? We pull the Knives Out for our spoiler free review of Rian Johnson’s latest film. Finally, we jump back in time to WW2 and look at an intimate story of youth in Nazi Germany with the satire indipendent film by Taika Waititi, JoJo Rabbit.

Come join us while we Dissect This Fiction! We are DTF...are you?
