January 24, 2017

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, the box office was dominated by two of the three newcomers. In particular, it was a good weekend for an oft-ridiculed filmmaker and his new title Split. This week brings an end to the apocalypse of Resident Evil, smiles with A Dog's Purpose, and a quest for Gold. Can M. Night Shyamalan protect his win?

In home entertainment, it's a short slate with symbology, monsters, trolls, and detectives. Sherlock comes home, as do two classics including a David Bowie alien film. Denise tops it all off with a variety of news, and we draw things to a close on The Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
