On an brand new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office picked up a December turkey as not even an Office Christmas Party could unseat Moana as the box office champ. This may be the last week on top for our animated heroine, but Disney's doing pretty well as they debut Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. 

 

In home entertainment, it's super-villains working off prison sentences, peculiar children with super powers, and a biblical epic to start things off. TV on DVD brings Star Trek, Korra, Dirk Gently, andt he slate belongs to the movies as six titles from 2016 make their premiere. Add them to a baby for Bridget Jones, a House of Lies, and another dose of the Walking Dead. Finally, Denise wraps things up with the Quick Flicks and we present you with a shiny new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an brand new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it was a terrible week to be a new release. Moana and Fantastic Beasts ruled the roost once again, and they have one more week to keep audiences entertained before the Death Star comes back to town. In the meantime, Miss Sloane and the Office Christmas Party will try their hardest to win hearts, minds, and cold hard cash. Do they have a chance against wizards, teenage heroes, and demigods?

 

Home entertainment gets busy as pets, super secret agents, cowboys, airline heroes, and storks make waves. Among these big name titles, however, is a touching documentary from a son to his late father, an idol from a science fiction legend. Television titles include irreverent animation, romance, a spinoff from a galaxy far away, and a high fantasy MTV project. It all rounds out with octane as Mad Max hits shelves in Black and Chrome fashion.

 

Finally, Denise brings it all to a close with a fitting and thematic review of a deeply inspirational film in the Quick Flicks. What better way to stay warm as December debuts than with your friends at The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an brand new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office shrugged off a turkey coma as Moana unseats Fantastic Beasts as the box office champ. Unfortunately, that luck didn't spread far among the new releases. The good news is that they have a chance to remain in the running since this week brings only one contender to the table. 

 

In home entertainment, the slate belongs to the movies as six titles from 2016 make their premiere. Add them to a baby for Bridget Jones, a House of Lies, and a game of Finders Keepers to put the finishing touches on the plate. Add in dessert with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and you have an end-of-the-month edition of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new Double Digest edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office remains strange as the good doctor fends off aliens, angry offspring, and a mid-November horror flick. This week sees one brand of magic facing off against another as Doctor Strange defends his title against the first Harry Potter spinoff in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. And if that's not enough magic, Moana joins that fray in two weeks. Welcome to the November blockbuster season.

In home entertainment, a fish finds home in Finding Dory and Star Wars takes another chunk out of everyone's budgets. In the "One of These Things is Not Like the Other" Department, the Suicide Squad, Jason Bourne, and The Secret Life of Pets make their digital debuts. On television, we welcome the drama of Westeros, an animated Trek, and another entry from MST3K. Finally, two classics debut in HD as the Looney Tunes crew plays basketball and the Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller does what Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers do best.

Is that all? Of course not. What kind of bountiful feast for the ears would this be without Denise and the Quick Flicks? All of this in a double episode for the debut of the holiday season on The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office goes strange as the Doctor Strange takes the top spot. There are no losers among the newbies, as Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge aren't far behind. Next week's new arrivals (see what we did there?) will attempt to take down the good doctor with aliens, family drama, and shut-in thrillers.

 

In home entertainment, we have a Sausage Party, the digital debut of Kubo, and the Devil of Hell's Kitchen leading the pack. After we put a bow on the package with Denise and the Quick Flicks, it's time to deliver you a brand new installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

NOTE: With apologies to Michael and Denise, here is a much delayed episode of The Weekly Podioplex.

 

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it's the last show of the month, and a surprising (yet fitting) champion has emerged with Boo! A Madea Halloween. It's not certain how long Madea will hold the crown since Jack Reacher wasn't far behind, and there's a conspiracy on the horizon with Robert Langdon and his adventures in Inferno.

 

In home entertainment, we go on a Hunt for the Wilderpeople, find Dory on digital, race Nash Bridges on the television front, and head off to Neverland in a hi-def look back to 1991. It's a short slate, but it ends in top fashion as Denise brings you the news in the Quick Flicks, putting the wrap on this installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we're moving into October's back half with a win from The Accountant as it leads the stunning stage bow for Kevin Hart and the stumbling Max Steel. Next week will be action-on-action action as Jack Reacher returns to the silver screen and challenges Affleck for the crown.

 

In home entertainment, Jeff Goldblum and company return to save Earth in Independence Day: Resurgence, while Alice Through the Looking Glass debuts on digtial. In the television department, Bates Motel and Teen Wolf escort the powerhouse Downton Abbey to disc, and to round out the list, we get creepy dolls and creepier serial killers in the return of Child's Play.

 

Cap it all off with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and you have the newest installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we're haunting the station as The Girl on the Train arrives on time despite a poor reception, solidly beating the rest of the newcomers. She faces some steep competition from The Accountant, Max Steel, and Kevin Hart and we enter the middle of the month.

In home entertainment, the Ghostbusters and Krampus take advantage of the season in a bid for your shelves, along with the Ice Age crew and Tarzan. If digital is more your speed, Batman and Robin dust off the cowl and tights for another amazing adventure. Meanwhile, TV on DVD goes retro with a handful of blasts from the past to accompany Hannibal, Mike & Molly, and The Good Witch. To wrap things up, a Stephen King classic brings the scares from the past on Blu-Ray.

Finally, Denise wraps things up with the Quick Flicks, putting the stake in this installment of The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, we get peculiar as Miss Peregrine and her wards find box office gold with Deepwater Horizon running close behind. They face a challenge from another movie with kids as Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life joins The Girl on the Train and The Birth of a Nation to compete for number one.

 

In home entertainment, the X-Men face Apocalypse, the Sharknado tries for a fourth time, and Star Trek goes beyond to digital. Preacher and Constantine lead a thrilling set as TV goes spooky, and Harry Potter and Gremlins take over with returning releases from the past. Add in your weekly news with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and we have a warm welcome to October on The Weekly Podioplex, exclusively on The Chronic Rift Network.

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, there can only be seven as the remake of the classic Magnificent Seven rustles up box office gold. Quick on their heels is a special delivery from Storks, and the match is set for this week's winners and the newcomers, Miss Peregrine, Deepwater Horizon, and some Masterminds. It's a regular showdown in September.

 

Moving to home entertainment, quite a few lower end summer performers are coming to disc, and digital video showcases a preview of coming attractions with Ghostbusters and Independence Day: Resurgence. TV on DVD comes to the table with Grimm, Reign, and Ripper Street, and the classics on Blu-Ray proclaim that there can only be one. Not seven, but one, as Highlander reaches its thirtieth anniversary.

 

Add in your weekly news with Denise and the Quick Flicks, and you have a brand new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, exclusively on The Chronic Rift Network.
