April 25, 2017

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, it was a bad week to be a new release. In fact, none of the newbies broke into the top five, and the best among them was a documentary with cute critters. The Fate of the Furious kept driving, and unless The Circle, a street magician, or a latin lover can muster the numbers, Toretto's family will keep riding into the sunset.

The home entertainment slate is a small affair, musicals both modern and classic, a battle of werewolves and vampires, and... well... an affair. Denise caps off the week with The Mummy's daddy issues, another crack at the Dark Phoenix, and some uncertainty about Predator and Trek on this new edition of the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
