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.

Top 5 Badass Characters

For this episode of At Least You Tried Jonathan, Anthony, and Jake sat down and discussed their lists for “Top 5 Badass Characters”. What makes a character badass? Is it having muscles for days, ones ability to keep cool under pressure, or maybe just an unspoken quality that makes you go “Damn, I wish I were them”?

Authors Note: This is our first episode with NEW AND IMPROVED AUDIO. Our first few episodes suffered from some audio difficulties (Jonathan didn’t set up the mic correctly) but from here on out it should sound MUCH better

The Purge

As we sat down to the watered down home invasion film many questions arose, such as: What happens to the bodies after the purge? Is Little Skrillex out to screw over his family? and could they really not find anyone better than Ethan Hawke to be the lead (Nick Cage perhaps)? Come Join us as we search for the answers and make the new founding fathers proud.
