UNT 123: Loki

With more variants than you can poke a pruning baton at, the MCU continues to expand with the new television series, Loki. We delved into the secret files of the TVA to find the answers to this mysterious show, and were still left with questions about its glorious purpose. But we did find Throg, and Tim brought Josta for everyone! We may have had some divided opinions on this show, but one thing is for sure – this marks the beginning of a whole new chapter for the MCU, and its branching...


UNT 122: Black Widow

It's been a long time coming, but the MCU is back on the big screen! Phase Four kicks off in Budapest style with the release of Black Widow. We squeezed our dad bods into our old superhero suits to sit down and discuss the long-awaited MCU solo movie for Scarlet Johansson and the Black Widow character, daring to try and connect the dots between Dr. Claw, Seinfeld, Red Hulk and broken noses with nothing more than an unhealthy amount pockets and posing. Was this movie the grand swan song Black...


UNT 121: Big Trouble In Little China

Big Trouble in Little China turns 35 this year, so when some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye and asks you if you paid your dues; you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that... “Have you paid your dues, Jack? Yes, sir. The check is in the mail.” So you see, we’re not saying that we've been everywhere and done...


UNT 120: Star Trek IV The Voyage Home 35th Anniversary

What do you do when the internet in Arizona is under siege by an alien probe of unknown origins? You slingshot around the sun with a look back at Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. The fourth entry into the Star Trek series of films has reached its 35th anniversary, so along with Caleb from the Autopod Decepticast, Greig took a quick look back at what is regarded as many people's favourite Star Trek movie, if not technically the 'greatest'. **cough** Wrath of Khan **cough** The return of jovial...


UNT 119: Invincible

Another cartoon? Yep, but this one isn’t what you think. Cue the splatter, it’s time to talk Invincible. What do you get when you cross The Walking Dead with Booster Gold, thrown together with some graphic violence that would make Rorschach blush, garnished by a mustachioed man who used to run a newspaper, talk to bats and is obsessed with tempo? You get the new hit animated series by Robert Kirkman, based on that comic your in-the-know-friend has been bugging you to read for years. This...


UNT 118: Mortal Kombat

Are you ready for another Mortal Kombat movie? Neither were we, but we reviewed it anyway. So "Get Over Here!" and check it out! We'd like to say we all sat down and eloquently discussed the cultural impact that the groundbreaking Mortal Kombat had on early nineties video games, a legacy that holds true even today... but mostly we talked about Fatalities and how awesome Kano was. So if you like murder, revenge, supernatural activity, weird characters, ungodly creatures and brutal violence,...


UNT 117: The Falcon And The Winter Soldier

Are you a Falcon, a Winter Soldier, a U.S. Agent or a Flag Smasher? Well, if you watched the latest Disney+ / Marvel Television show, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, you might be a little of everything. We know we are. If you're ready for the new Captain America (and more Marvel Easter eggs than you can poke a vibranium shield at) then get ready to boogie like Zemo into this new episode of Unfunny Nerd Tangent. We take a look at all the goings on of the new series, including what it means...


UNT 116: Godzilla Vs Kong

We pull out all the stops as we react to the climax of the cinematic MonsterVerse: Godzilla Vs Kong! In the mighty tradition of Alien Vs Predator, Freddy Vs Jason and of course... Batman V Superman, comes the tip-touching titans that will not stop, no matter how much splash-back is involved. If that last sentence doesn't make any sense to you, check out our latest slugfest of an episode, before this movie gets a sequel, and we all move to Canadia! Hosted by: 'Captain of the Monsters' Greig...


UNT 115: Zack Snyder's Justice League

It's finally here. After four years and one really annoying hashtag, DC, Warner Bros. and HBO released the Snyder Cut, now forever known as Zack Snyder's Justice League. A (four hour) movie we thought we'd never see. But is it any good? For this 'Agne Cut' of a movie we've already reviewed, we formed a League of our own when Tim, Jared and Greig sat down with Aussie Top 3's Stacey, Mike from Mike Seibert Radio and Melissa from We Binge On Crime to discuss not only the changes, additions and...


UNT 114: WandaVision

What is UNT if not podcasting persevering? That’s right, we watched WandaVision (and so did you) so we put together an Avengers-level crossover to talk about it. What did the MCU do for their first ever television series? Did they play it safe? Give us a bunch of comic book splash page images, or bring in a bunch of big-name supervillains like Magneto, Doctor Doom or, wait for it… Mephisto? Despite the rumors, not really. But what they did do was deliver an outstanding take on depression,...


UNT 113: Coming To America

With a sequel only weeks away, (and let’s face it, everyone is running out of Netflix to watch) we took a look back at the smash hit 1988 comedy from Eddie Murphy: Coming to America. How many tangents can we go on in a single episode? More than you can shake your rose petals at. From the origins of Eddie Murphy playing multiple roles in his films, McDonald’s Vs. McDowell’s and the new version of The Stand, to the specific way that hair is NOT cut and drums are NOT hit in this movie, not to...


UNT 112: Cobra Kai Season 3

Cobra Kai is back with its third season, so of course we donned our headbands to review and relive its nostalgic goodness. Brave your Vietnam flashbacks and high-school-battle PTSD, return to Okinawa and reopen your Facebook account, since this season had more to dissect that you can throw a big, red mohawk at. Returning favorites like Chozen, Kumiko and of course, Alli with an i helped fill the gap left by Aisha and Stingray. But what about our classic characters like Johnny, Daniel, Miguel...


UNT 111: Wonder Woman 1984

The world is in all kinds of chaos right now, and just wishing it all away won’t solve anything. Or will it? This is the quandary we found ourselves in when we reviewed and debated the new movie, Wonder Woman 1984. Recent events may have forced this movie’s release to be different than most. But, does that matter? Does the theater experience compare to watching at home, or is this movie really as bad as the critics say it is? Along with our very own Wonder Woman, Stacey, we grabbed our...


UNT 110: The Mandalorian Season 2

SPOILERS, kids... Look out into space: It’s an X-Wing, it’s a glove, it’s a green lightsaber! The Mandalorian is back with another stellar season that proves you can please old and new fans alike (sorry, JJ & Rian). Our resident Jedi and Star Wars expert, Flo, returns along with new Foundling, Rok from the Mat Mania Podcast to discuss the new Mandalorian season, including a host of new characters, fan favorites brought to life for the first time and of course… that final episode that broke...


UNT 109: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990)

One of the most comic-accurate movies of all time is now 30 years old, so we decided to celebrate the Holidays by fighting in the 'old style', and look back at the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If this episode reminds you of something that happened years ago in Japan, it’s because we removed the penicillin from your pizza and kept those Sony payments at bay, to instead meditate on this revolutionary film from three decades ago that certainly wasn’t some cartoon. And if you don’t...


UNT 108: The New Mutants

Despite reshoots, a corporate takeover and more release dates that you can shake a dragon puppet at, the movie we thought might never see the light of day has arrived: The New Mutants. Join us and our guest, Mike Seibert from Mike Seibert Radio in Limbo, as we rate, review and Rasputin this movie, which promises to be the final entry into the Fox X-Men Universe. Hosted by: ‘Captain Boomerang’ Greig Tansley (@GreigT13). Featuring: 'Lockheed' Tim Agne (@timagne) & Mike Seibert...


UNT 107: Gremlins Vs Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Unfunny Nerd Tangent returns just in time for the festive season to discuss not one but two classics – Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Aaron and Ryan join us from the Autopod Decepticast to rate and review these seemingly-timeless creature-features, leading us down several tangents, including: why Kingston Falls looks eerily-similar to Hill Valley, why Kate’s Santa story stops the movie (ahem) dead in its tracks, and are the Gremlins living in the Breaking Bad universe? Not to...


UNT 106: The Boys Season 2

Season 2 of The Boys has hit and no matter what your take was, it certainly wasn’t predictable. Fresca? Join us as we return to The Seven, Vought International and The Church of the Collective to discuss all the head-popping hilarity and whale-deep gore of the latest season. GoPro blackmail, the ultimate Übermensch, Almond Joys and most of all… all the C-Bombs you can shake a love sausage at, this season had it all. And next year we get Jensen Ackles. So don’t be a toxic personality, pass...


UNT 105: Mean Girls

Get in, loser, we're podcasting. That’s right — we're talking about Mean Girls. And oh my God, we love your skirt. After a made-for-TV sequel and like a bajillion memes, this teen comedy classic is now old enough to be a junior in high school itself. Tina Fey's script remains as funny as ever, and watching Mean Girls in October 2020 raises some timely questions about how we should feel when a bully gets hit by a bus. It's just a shame that our tickets to the Broadway musical got canceled. So...


UNT 104: Cobra Kai Seasons 1 & 2

You asked for it, so here it is! It took a while, but FINALLY, Unfunny Nerd Tangent rates and reviews the nostalgic show that’s brought sentimental memories flooding back to even the most cynical karate-dojo masters – Seasons 1 & 2 of Cobra Kai. Retro-sequels and long-time-reunions are tough to get right, especially in this day and age of the complete reboot (and rip-off). But as we all know, the original is usually the best, so when we sat down to discuss why Cobra Kai has taken the world...
