There’s a lot of exciting nerd announcements this week, and the Nerd Reactor Podcast gang chimes in. Hosting the podcast this week is Mike Villarreal. Joining him are John “Spartan” Nguyen, Mark Pacis, Jose Gutierrez III and Holly Amos.

Mark and I had the opportunity to check out both The Raid 2 and 300: Rise of an Empire (300: RoE comes out this week and The Raid 2 comes out later this month). They’re both fun action movies, but only one comes out on top as one of the most kick-ass films of the decade! Yes, that’s a bold statement.

With Stephen Chow’s Journey to the West coming out this week, Mike got a chance to watch it and reviews the movie. He also talks about the Star Wars Radio Drama that was released in the ’80s that included voice work from Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels.

Moving on to movie news, we talk about the new Transformers: Age of Extinction trailer and the pre-rendered CG trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight.

Some of us attended Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman’s Hollywood Babble-On and the preview of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier exhibit inside Disneyland’s Innoventions. Is the Cap exhibit worth it? Listen to find out, but what we can reveal is that Holly would be perfect to cosplay a female pre-serum Steve Rogers.
