The Weekly Podioplex: May 24, 2016


On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office went to the birds as Rovio's avian avatars struck down #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan. Unfortunately, the X-Men are bringing Apocalypse to theaters. Will the Angry Birds and their slingshot be able to withstand the mutant uprising?

Meanwhile, Disney strikes back with the heroes of the Coast Guard on your home theater, and a long lost adventure in time and space comes home with Doctor Who and The Underwater Menace. Add in Zoolander, the risen Messiah, Kevin Arnold, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.

Podcast Promos

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!
