On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Logan sliced into the box office and eliminated the competition, using his cinematic swan song to make his mark on the record books. This week, the Wolverine goes toe to toe with a giant ape as Kong: Skull Island takes audiences on a forbidden journey. Which mutant will win?

 

In home entertainment, Disney takes us to the islands as Moana makes her debut alongside Jackie, Scamander, and the Passengers. The Americans sneak into the TV list, and two classics make their way onto high-definition. After that, Denise wraps things up with a new slate of news in the Quick Flicks, putting the finishing touches on this first March edition of the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, November debuts with a repeat winner as Boo! A Madea Halloween fends off a tepid performance by Inferno. Robert Langdon's disappointing debut will likely result in a rapid decline as Marvel returns to the stage with Doctor Strange. Following on the doctor's heels are an animated comedy about Trolls and a war drama called Hacksaw Ridge.

 

In home entertainment, we boldy go with Star Trek Beyond, Bad Moms, and the Return of the Caped Crusaders. It's a Sausage Party on digital, and a smorgasbord of home entertainment including Librarirans, IT professionals, and time travelers. Wrap things up with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and you have a shiny new installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

 On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Jason Bourne took down the Enterprise as Matt Damon ends his nine year hiatus from the role with a bang. Kirk and crew held off the Bad Moms and the nerve-wracking stunts of Nerve, but this week's good guys may have a tough time against next week's bad guys as the Suicide Squad explodes into theaters. 

 

On the home entertainment front, a handful of big name comedies join The Killing Joke on disc, and The Huntsman brings the Winter's War to digital. TV on DVD is spy drama with Blindspot and The Blacklist, and the sinking of the most famous unsinkable ship comes forward on Blu-Ray. This and more on a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.

Remake This Movie RIGHT!

“Remake This Movie RIGHT!” is a bi-weekly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version of how a modern retelling should go. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!

On an all-new no foolin' edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the bunny took a backseat as Batman and Superman battled their way through several records for a stellar weekend. The big question is whether or not those titans can keep the box office throne against brutal critical reviews and a lackluster new release slate. This, some winter films for your home theater, and a return to the Satellite of Love fill out the rest of this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on the Chronic Rift Network.
