The Weekly Podioplex: September 27, 2016

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 street.

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.
