April 3, 2018

On this week's edition of The Weekly Podioplex, Ready Player One is ready in number one, but it's not the success that the hype made it out to be. This week, a horror film will use silence as a weapon agains the OASIS, and it's already looking strong. A Quiet Place is joined by The Miracle Season, Blockers, and Chappaquiddick in an attempt to upset the first place champ.

On the home entertainment front, it's a slow week with Insidious, The Post, and a few smaller TV titles. After that, Denise laments the slow news week with a dose of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Enjoy the journey, because it's showtime on the Weekly Podioplex, brought to you on The Chronic Rift Network.
