Our hosts brains are a little scrambled trying to figure out how the timeline works in the film Terminator Genisys. As a reboot it may work, but having just marathoned the first four Terminators, they are going to be a little picky.
This time around Dorin, Jenn and Kendyl discuss the film Sabotage in which a team of DEA agents is quickly being eliminated one by one, loosely based on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. While this isn’t everyone’s type of film, they have a good time discussing what parts were unnecessary, what parts were confusing and why the deaths needed to be more interesting.
Hosts Kendyl, Dorin, Ryan and Chase get together to discuss Philip K. Dick’s short story We Can Remember It For You, Wholesale and its two movie adaptations: Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 Total Recall and the current Len Wiseman remake.

To correct this, Adaptation will be doing an episode where we talk about the story and both films. But while we wait for the film to be released, here’s the new trailer to tide you over:
