Syndication

 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!
