The Weekly Podioplex: March 29, 2016

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.
