Episode 17: Hobbs and Shaw

"What in the fresh turkey hell are we dealing with here?"


Midcard Matinee is back with another Rock pic and this time the People's Champ and his Uces (Usos? Usi?) are going FULL NITROUS in The Fast and the Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, alongside Jason Statham, Idris Elba and a star-studded cast of charismatic, funny and talented actors. 

Also, Roman Reigns appears. 

The crew breaks down the plot, as always, and talks about the highlights (and lowlights) from the film. We discuss the cinematic effects, the non-stop action, the Fast and the Furious-verse, how friggin' RIDICULOUSLY CHARISMATIC the cast is, and Nick and Steve try to convince Daine that the entire Samoan part of the film isn't pandering and annoying (they failed). And of course, Nick opens up the fantasy book! Once we dole out our star ratings, we put it up against the current Midcard Matinee Movie Champion, The Wrestler, with the title on the line!

In sad news, Daine also makes the announcement that Midcard Matinee will be going on an indefinite hiatus as he tries to navigate life as a college professor in 2020. So, thanks for all of the support over these 17 episodes and feel free to stay engaged on Twitter @midcard_matinee to give us your ratings on movies with wrestlers!
