Episode 163: Summer Blockbusters


Summer blockbusters are on tap this week as the Geeks talk about some of the best of all time.

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron got the summer blockbuster season off to a huge start last week, and the Geeks decided to dig a little deeper into what makes a summer blockbuster great, or not great, and talk about some of the greatest summer blockbusters of all time in this week’s podcast.

The podcast is kickstarted this week by another Reverse Tweet The Geeks. This week’s question is this: What is your favorite summer blockbuster of all time?  The Geeks answer by talking about some of their favorite summer blockbusters, and what made each one so great. We want to hear from you! Let us know your answers, and what made these summer hits so great!

  • As the guys take a look at what makes a summer blockbuster so great, there are several great questions that arise:
  • Why do we love going to the movies during the summer?
  • What makes a good summer blockbuster?
  • Are superhero movies the only successful summer blockbusters now?
  • Will we see any different trends at the box office?

The guys also talk about Entertainment Weekly’s Top 30 Summer Blockbusters of all time. What do you think is #1?

After the break, James has lots of movie news to cover, as some really awesome things happened this week. You won’t want to miss it!

The Geeks round out the show with a fitting ending, given this week’s topic of summer blockbusters.
