The 2017 Summer Movie Awards | Ep 284

Summer Movies of 2017 is officially in the bag, so how was it? Many people have complained that this was one of the weaker summers in memory, was it really that bad, or are moviegoers suffering from too much awesome?

We debate the summer of 2017 at length – where it stood, what was lacking, which franchises were born and which need to be put out to pasture, what caught our eye on television, and even our own favorite summer movie experiences. Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Dunkirk, War for the Planet of the Apes, Baby Driver, Girls Trip, and much more. We then cap it all off with our annual Summer Movie HO Awards!
