March 7, 2017


On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Logan sliced into the box office and eliminated the competition, using his cinematic swan song to make his mark on the record books. This week, the Wolverine goes toe to toe with a giant ape as Kong: Skull Island takes audiences on a forbidden journey. Which mutant will win?

In home entertainment, Disney takes us to the islands as Moana makes her debut alongside Jackie, Scamander, and the Passengers. The Americans sneak into the TV list, and two classics make their way onto high-definition. After that, Denise wraps things up with a new slate of news in the Quick Flicks, putting the finishing touches on this first March edition of the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
