GLADIATOR 17th Anniversary sponsored by "GoDaddy Coupon" at

In this week's StorySmack, AB Kovacs and I can't seem to figure out the maths. We mistakenly thought the Russell Crowe GLADIATOR was 25 years old, so we got all sentimental about this classic sword-and-sandals flick. Problem is, it's only 17 years old, which we didn't figure out until after we recorded (the Cuba Gooding Jr. GLADIATOR is 25 years old, so we were either confused about that or its time to lay off the meth). Still, the Crowe version is awesome, so join us for a chit-chat. Sponsored by GoDaddy Coupon CJCSIGLERC

Captain America: Civil War! Review courtesy of GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERP

I watched it, I loved it, I'd see it again! My review thanks to our GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERP which gets you 30% off your entire order of new products only.

In 1991, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), brainwashed to be the Winter Soldier, causes a car to crash and recovers bags of a serum that turns people into super soldiers.

The short:  Political interference in the Avengers' activities causes a rift between former allies Captain America and Iron Man.

The longer: With many people fearing the actions of super heroes, the government decides to push for the Hero Registration Act, a law that limits a hero's actions. This results in a division in The Avengers. Iron Man stands with this Act, claiming that their actions must be kept in check otherwise cities will continue to be destroyed, but Captain America feels that saving the world is daring enough and that they cannot rely on the government to protect the world. This escalates into an all-out war between Team Iron Man (Iron Man, Black Panther, Vision, Black Widow, War Machine, and Spiderman) and Team Captain America (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, Sharon Carter, Scarlett Witch, Hawkeye, and Ant Man) while a new villain emerges.

Throwback review for 47 Ronin courtesy of GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERP

It's been out a while, but still worth a review. I'm going to tell you all about 47 Ronin thanks to our GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERP which gets you 30% off your entire order of new products only.
Sometimes you have to watch a movie even though you know it's not going to be what you thought it would be. And sometimes, you get something you didn't know you'd get, just for your dedication. 47 Ronin is kinda like that. Worth it, but not great.
