Have you heard of this flick? Neither had the boys, and the trailer looked neat, so it was a perfect candidate for a Geeksploration Movie Night!!!

Zardoz, it was not. But if you’ve got an extra 77 mins to spend on a well animated mess with some rock and roll all stars, give this a shot. You may regret it, but if they did it you can to!!!

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
