We're DTF In 2020! - The Mandalorian, Iron Sky: The Coming Race, Hellboy, Living with Yourself,

Welcome to Dissecting This Fiction! It's episode 13, 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, kiosk game rentals are so last year. We share the free games of the new year for Games with Gold and Playstation Plus. Sony gives the Dualshock 4 a late upgrade, we think? Apple want you playing their games all year. Steven talks about his friend, Pedro...or is it My Friend, Pedro? And some Untitled Goose Game. It was hard to find without a name.

In TV, The Witcher slays the streaming beasts. DIsney Plus’ stats change to minus. The Mandalorian sets course for another season. Wanda has a vision and messes with the MCU timeline. Some Mutants might make an appearance sooner than expected at Disney. Marvel possibly found its Moonknight. Quibi took the show Killing Zac Effron too literal. We finished up our final thoughts on Living With Yourself, Season 9 of Shameless, and space adventures in babysitting known as The Mandalorian.

In Trailers, we discuss The Grudge, Underwater, and A Quiet Place Part 2. Somehow they ended up all being horror movies. Jessica was not thrilled.

In movies, Ryan Reynolds drops big news on a talk show and nobody noticed for days. Universal tries to deny that Cats exists. Japan gets a blue baby. Uncharted movie gets stranded again. The New Mutants are old news at this point, but Disney won’t admit it. Marvel used smoke and mirrors on the first MCU horror movie and its strange. Spiderman doesn’t get a summer vacation this year. We review Iron Sky: The Coming Race and Hellboy (2019).
