Between the Streams podcast: 'Ready Player One' review, 'Westworld' vs. 'The Handmaid's Tale'

We begin this week's show with a spoiler-free look at the always-controversial Ready Player One -- this time in full cinematic form courtesy of one Steven Spielberg. Without giving too much away, the film version of the virtual reality fantasy tale makes some drastic changes from the book that spawned it, some for better some for worse. There is some true Spielberg magic here, but we'll talk a bit today about why this film didn't strike the chords we had hoped for.

Two major TV trailers were also revealed this week, including a first look at the sophomore seasons of two of TV's hottest shows in Westworld and The Handmaid's Tale. Will Westworld go off the Wild West rails this season? Will Offred get her revenge/salvation? We make our predictions and go over all the good stuff.

Elsewhere in the world of entertainment this week, we received a hilarious new Archer trailer (somehow set in World War II's South Pacific), Captain Marvel pics and plot details, Roseanne's bizarrely popular return, Wonder Woman 2 casting, a Carmen San Diego movie, and much more.

So check us out today at 2 p.m. live, or download the podcast at the links below and take Between the Streams on the road.
