Are you War Ready? You might think that you are War Ready. But no one is quite as War Ready as the ReelBlend co-hosts this week, and when you listen to the most recent episode of the ReelBlend podcast, you will understand why.

Pacific Rim Uprising is making its way to theaters. So Sean O'Connell, Jake Hamilton and Kevin McCarthy are diving into Steven S. DeKnight's robot-on-monster blockbuster, which Kevin liked, and Sean says is a coming out party for John Boyega as a franchise-carrying leading man. That discussion triggered a debate about the best sequels that came from directors who DIDN'T launch the franchise. How often does a series change hands, and then improve? The guys discuss.

Kevin has seen Ready Player One. He even interviewed Steven Spielberg at the Ready Player One junket. He has amazing stories to tell about discussing RPO with Spielberg. Give that a listen.

The show actually starts with Jake, Kevin and Sean figuring out how big Avengers: Infinity War's opening weekend could be. A few weeks back, they all thought Black Panther would actually outgross Joe and Anthony Russo's blockbuster. Now, a different tune.

And finally, this week -- as part of the ongoing #Blend debate game, the boys tackle the filmography of Martin Scorsese, trying to decide on what his BEST movie is. Not their favorite. Scorsese's BEST. They all have different picks, and they passionately debate why they made their choices. Then, they share the choices from all the ReelBlenders who played along on social media.

Which director will the guys discuss next week? Listen to the end of the show and find out!
