On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, audiences witnessed a Rampage. While we revel in the fact that this particular video game got a movie with The Rock, let us also consider that it has only one more week to earn back its budget before Marvel shuts that door forever. Also standing in Rampage's way are three new releases: I Feel Pretty, Super Troopers 2, and Traffik. Is fate on the side of the gorilla named George?  

On the home entertainment front, it's April, it's tax season, and it's slow. You get The Post (Meryl Streep being awesome), The Commuter (Liam Neeson punching a train... or something), and Winchester (the ghosts of firearms past). TV on DVD buoys things up with the return of MST3K, the next round of Killjoys (RIP Dark Matter), and Perfect Strangers. After that, Denise fights the slow news season with a couple of stellar reviews before bringing this edition to a close.

Enjoy the journey, because it's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, audiences found A Quiet Place, which is really what theaters should be. Seriously, Ted, no one wants to hear your new ringtone when the movie's playing, no matter how retro Nokia you went. Er, anyway... This week, monsters are still in vogue as we go on a Rampage, check in with Borg and McEnroe, and play Truth or Dare.  

On the home entertainment front, it's another slow week with The Greatest Showman, Phantom Thread, and Outlander among others. After that, Denise brings news of reboots and regenerations, as well as uplifiting tale of Black Panther in Saudi Arabia and empowering deaf actresses.

Enjoy the journey, because it's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Ready Player One is ready in number one, but it's not the success that the hype made it out to be. This week, a horror film will use silence as a weapon agains the OASIS, and it's already looking strong. A Quiet Place is joined by The Miracle Season, Blockers, and Chappaquiddick in an attempt to upset the first place champ. 

On the home entertainment front, it's a slow week with Insidious, The Post, and a few smaller TV titles. After that, Denise laments the slow news week with a dose of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Enjoy the journey, because it's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office has the Biloxi Blues as the team of Broderick, Walken, and Miller bring stageplay to the silver screen. This week, the recruits contend with an irreverent poltergeist in the guise of Beetlejuice.

 

We're not saying it again. 

On the home entertainment front, five good titles come to your VHS player, including the adorably zany Princess Bride and the sci-fi stunner Innerspace. After that, Denise brings words of Phantoms in the West End, a new Oprah show, Aliens with Sigourney and ALF, and Tom Cruise.

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the Black Panther is unstoppable as the film crests $1 billion worldwide and just keeps on kicking tail. Gringo couldn't stop it, a hurricane couldn't stop it, Strangers couldn't stop it... not even Disney could stop it. Lara Croft and a new version of Tomb Raider is leading a small army of newcomers who will try to stop the king, but it's anyone's guess as to who will come in on top.

On the home entertainment front, Shape of Water and Justice League lead the pack with The Last Jedi coming to digital. The Handmaid's Tale brings a frightening future to TV shelves, and our retro title takes us on A Trip to the Moon. 

Denise returns to your ears with news of a holistic detective, a Green Lantern that jumps on couches, and a treatise on Universal's Dark Universe. It's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

The Flopcast
Kevin and Kornflake are back in business, and bringing you The Flopcast, live from Chickentown. They are still quite obsessed with both coffee and cartoons, as well as comedy music, and various other silly and geeky pursuits. And rubber chickens. And yaks. They remain frightened and confused. And they still base all their personal and business decisions on the advice of that invisible toad thing. A huge mistake? Well, based on the track record of these two hopeless dreamers, the answer to that question can only be: "You're still reading this? Really?"

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we find out that there are turkeys in Wakanda and they are tasty. Black Panther is king for a third week straight, breaking a few more records and overpowering even Jennifer Lawrence and Bruce Willis. This week, it's Disney versus Disney as A Wrinkle in Time tries to take down the Panther. Either way, the Mouse is champ.

On the home entertainment front, thunderbolts and lightning are very very frightening with Thor: Ragnarok leading the charge. Jumanji goes digital as Atlanta and The Good Fight bring TV home. We also have Gelflings on HD as The Dark Crystal makes a 4K debut. 

Despite a slow news week, it's still showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it's Wakanda forever as Black Panther continues to reign as champion. March is trying to roar in like a lion with Red Sparrow and Death Wish, but the panther powered with vibranium has a ton of momentum.

 

On the home entertainment front, things pick up a bit this week with Coco leading a strong slate including Murder on the Orient Express and The Shape of Water. Television slows down a little with the rebooted MacGyver, but our retro title is the iconic Lady and the Tramp. Finally, Denise gives us updates on Battlestar Galactica, a whole lotta Stephen King, and a bat-farewell to Whedon.

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it's Wakanda forever as Black Panther breaks all sorts of records and secures the throne. Next week, games and aliens try to unseat the king as we visit Game Night and Annihilation, but the power of vibranium and T'Challa is hard to beat.

 

On the home entertainment front, it's a holiday clearinghouse as Daddy's Home 2, The Star, and the Twelfth Doctor's Christmas special make their debuts. In digital we get Thor: Ragnarok and a little dose of murder on the Orient Express. Also, television goes to Texas... Midnight, Texas, before returning us to the feet of The Master. Finally, Denise gives the week a send off with gifts of Scorsese in Rome and her thoughts on Black Panther. 

 

Spoiler: We both loved it.

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it took three new releases to dethrone the jungle. The king and queen are the torrid pair of Fifty Shades Freed, but they have only a mere week to enjoy their reign. Next week, we visit Wakanda and King T'challa, better known as the Black Panther. It's shaping up to be a big, marvelous adventure.

On the home entertainment front, physical media brings both Wonder and Roman J. Israel, Esq, while digital goes to Coco and the Justice League. TV on DVD explores the New York City sex industry with Deuce and time and space with the Peter Capaldi run of Doctor Who. After that, zombies gotta eat as we revisit the Night of the Living Dead. Finally, Denise wraps up the show with Game of Thrones and Star Wars, the end of the line (maybe) for Thor, and an update on the scandals rocking Hollywood.

Enjoy the journey, because it's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
