The summer movies of 2018 is in the bag, so how was it? Many people have complained that this season has been overrun by sequels and franchise films, was it really that bad, or are moviegoers suffering from too much awesome?
We debate the summer of 2018 at length – where it stood, what was lacking, which franchises were born, the biggest news stories in entertainment, what caught our eye on television, and even our own favorite summer movie experiences. Avengers: Infinity War, Crazy Rich Asians, Deadpool 2, The Meg, Mission: Impossible -Fallout, Ocean's 8, and much more are discussed as we cap the entire episode off with our annual Summer Movie HO Awards!
