Didya know Geek Girl Riot’s superpower is breaking down the latest entertainment? Catch our Rioters talking Project Power, Lovecraft Country, DC Comics’ latest reshuffle, and more! 

Discovering New Music + Project Power
We’ve been loving the YouTube series Twins Reacts, where two brothers listen to some old school music for the first time. Sherin and Julian talk about this delightful trend and also why it’s important to share new and old music around. 

Then our Rioters get into Project Power, Netflix’s new action/superhero adventure about a new drug that grants its users a tailor-made superpower for five minutes of chaos. They share why this is the superhero movie our summer has been missing. (read Julian’s review) 

Lovecraft Country
HBO’s new series Lovecraft Country is about to blow your mind and snatch your heart outta your chest. Our dynamic duo get into why this series is one you absolutely must watch (and re-watch). They also dig into the importance of well-crafted storytelling that doesn’t shy away from portraying some of America’s darkest historical events to make it even more frightening. Watch Lovecraft Country on HBO every Sunday. (read Sherin’s review…then read Julian’s review)

DC’s Latest Moves + Jam Master Jay + Avatar” the Last Airbender
To close us out, Sherin and Julian talk about some of the latest news in entertainment, starting with DC Comics’ recent restructuring after its merger with AT&T. They also talk about the recent arrests surrounding Jam Master Jay’s murder. Then our dynamic duo dig into the walkout drama of Avatar: The Last Airbender adaptation on Netflix and why live action remakes aren’t always a good thing.
