Hard NOC Life: Do Summer Blockbusters Matter Anymore?

This week, Dominic and Keith break down the midpoint of the 2019 summer movie blockbuster season.

While Avengers: Endgame broke box office records before summer even started, the rest of the field has failed to live up to the hype.

Dominic and Keith cycle through the movies released so far and try to see if there are any bright spots on the horizon. Looking at you, Lion King.

Plus — the return of What’s #NerdPoppin this week (54:00): Neon Genesis Evangelion on Netflix, and new Batman and Michael Jordan action figures from Japanese toy company, MAFEX.
