The Weekly Podioplex: September 20, 2016

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Sully's still strong as the newbies all fall short. The next group of contenders for the crown are magnificent, including Storks and the remake of the Magnificent Seven. Can an animated comedy or a western succeed where the Blair Witch, Bridget Jones, and Snowden could not?

Moving to home entertainment, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back, as are the Neighbors and the Free State of Jones. Digital video brings the Purge and a new look at the legend of Tarzan, and television rings up an idiosyncratic mystery tale in Twin Peaks. Finally, the classics celebrate an eigthieth birthday with a thirtieth anniversary.

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