After years of hype and preparation, and with the help of the many A-list creatives hired by the MCU, we've finally arrived at the pivotal moment of discovery, when the world will find out... who won the Movie Schmovie Avengers Ice Cream Wager? Ronald, Steve and John reveal all as they discuss Avengers: Endgame. As a bonus, we also follow-up on last week's intense episode of Game of Thrones.
This weekend, Avengers: Endgame hits theaters and Game of Thrones will air its much touted Battle of Winterfell episode. The possibility for heroic carnage is high. On the eve of finding out what happens in both epic tales, Ronald, Steve, and John gathered by the fire to eat some shwarma and trade thoughts, theories and predictions.
For his follow-up to 2017's surprise hit Get Out, writer/director/producer Jordan Peele broadened the scope, complicated the tone, and amped up the scares. Throw in a career-first lead turn from Lupita Nyong'o, and anticipation was off the charts at Schmovie HQ. Does Us seal the deal?
Ronald, Steve and John have seen Captain Marvel, the latest installment in the unstoppable MCU saga.

How does it stand up on its own terms, as just, you know, a movie? We've got thoughts...
Deciding which movies are the best is a tough job, especially after a year with as many great ones as 2018 had. It's a brutal enterprise and it takes people of unique focus and vision to see it through. Sadly, you're stuck with Ronald, Steve, and John. Listen in and find out how they did.
The year-end wrap-up continues as Ronald, Steve and John call out a bunch of exemplary television shows from 2018, including new discoveries and returning favorites.
