Our hosts also get a chance to dive into the latest Justice League Trailer, EliteCon’s cosplay ban, and NYCC’s decision to only sell single day passes for 2017.

In which, an all geek girl cast discusses Disney’s brand new, live action remake of what is arguably their best and most well-loved animated classic, Beauty and the Beast. Tracy, Becky, and Donnelle discuss the adaptation of a cartoon to real life–especially the creation of real costumes that mimic the animation of the original and whether the CGI enhancements worked for this movie, and Becky postulates an interesting question: should this movie (and possibly future remakes) have left the music behind?
In which Dude and Andrew indulge their love of monster movies and review the brand new Kong: Skull Island. There is quite a bit of good, but also some noticeable stupid along the way. The pair also round out the episode with yet another cover controversy and questions about Stan Lee’s health and how good he really is at female diversity.
In which, Tracy rejoins the cast of Therefore I Geek just in time to discuss the newest edition to 20th Century Fox’s X-men franchise, Logan. This film is the first one to truly seem to bring the gang to a positive consensus–although all three of our heroes believe that it falters a bit in the third act. Dude reveals that he went to church, potentially dooming all of mankind, and Tracy hates on child actors (again).
