Suicide Squad


For this episode the gang sat down and watched the critically thrashed “Suicide Squad“. We discussed the movie’s pros, it’s cons, and it’s convicts. Does this movie really deserve it’s sad 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes? Where’s the Joker that we saw so much in the promotional footage? and did they really think they had anyone fooled with the character Slipknot?

We give an honest review of the film along with having our resident DC fanboy Alex weigh in on how accurate the film is to the comics/ DC universe.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of justice

This week Jonathan, Jake, and Alex were joined by Jazmin (Jonathan’s wife) to discuss the underwhelming Batman v Superman: Dawn of justice.

Did Superman forget he had powers when he took on Batman? Did his conversation with Lois Lane have to take place in their bathroom while she was completely nude? Did we need a two and a half hour run time complete with ANOTHER Batman origin story? and why the hell did they stop fighting just because their moms share the same first name? #Marthalivesmatter

All this and more on this week’s episode of At Least You Tried…

Mortal Kombat

In this week’s episode Jonathan and Anthony are joined by guests Tyler and Casey. Together the group takes on (one at a time of course) Mortal Kombat!

Is Johnny Cage really so concerned with his image he’ll join a tournament to the death to prove he’s not “faking it”? How did Johnny escape the netherworld after he kills Scorpion? ¬†and Did Christopher Lambert smoke 2 packs of Kamels a day to prepare for this role? All these will be answered (or not) on this week’s episode.

A flawless victory… eh not so much.
