The Breakdown of 'Ant-Man and the Wasp', 'Sicario: Day of Soldado', 'The First Purge', 'Brain on Fire' and 'Tau'
The Movie Breakdown is a huge episode this week with five big movie reviews, but exciting things can also happen in small packages too. We have a review of the smallest superheroes in a big movie event with Ant-Man and the Wasp. Sequels are a big thing this week with a follow-up that I had never expected in the dark war against drug cartels thriller, Sicario: Day of Soldado. Then we also have the fourth movie in a horror-action series in The First Purge. But what about the Netflix offerings, you say? We've got movies with some big rising stars in Chloe Grace Moretz starring in the based on a true story drama, Brain on Fire. We also review a 'girl stuck in a robotic house with a psycho' thriller starring the great Maika Monroe in Tau. As an added bonus, this episode doesn't sound like garbage! We always have a great time doing this show, and we are always thankful you listen to us each week. If you enjoy the show then please help us out by spreading the word or giving us a five-star review on iTunes.

We apologize but there won't be any outline for The Movie Breakdown, due to the crazy mystery that the media player runs different times and so the timestamps have no value. If you know how to solve this problem then it would be greatly appreciated.
