Sonic the Hedgehog

Sega has taken company mascot Sonic The Hedgehog to the next level with a brand new live-action feature. That means Arnie, Justin, and Stuart are racing back to the Now Playing Arcade to cover all the twists and loop-de-loops this video game icon has traveled on the road to this CGI makeover. Will the Blue Devil win over Red State America as he makes rural Montana his home?  And is he running rings around smartypants Dr. Robotnik, or has Jim Carrey simply forfeited the comedy game? Push play on the podcast and find out!

Closer - For Annual Subscribers

Get to know Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob in revealing new ways this February when you listen to their decidedly un-romantic Valentine’s Day review of 2004 drama Closer. Will London writer Jude Law find the words to break up with American stripper Natalie Portman after falling for married photographer Julia Roberts?  And will doctor Clive Owen send the stringy trickster to the ER for catfishing him in a chatroom? Find out who gets screwed, and who gets screwed over, when you sign the contract to become a Now Playing Patron!

Birds of Prey

Time to find out who the real Harley Quinn is! Margot Robbie emancipates herself from that less-than-fantabulous group of metahumans known as Suicide Squad to fly with new crew Birds of Prey. Does a teen pickpocket, salty cop, ass-kicking lounge singer, and crossbow killer offer Harley the same level of protection as Jared Leto’s Joker? Or can Gotham villains like Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) separate this smart-mouthed clown from her face or breakfast sandwich without fear of retaliation? Chillax with some pizza and Cosmos, and take in our tell-all podcast!

Rush Hour 3 - For Annual Subscribers

Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker served up a triple order of soul food and crab lampoon when they delivered Rush Hour 3 to hungry audiences in 2007.  But does their brand of bromance partner well with the added ingredients of a long lost Japanese relative, saucy European locations, and a full body search from smooth criminal Roman Polanski?  And does it take an ace detective to deduce that Max Von Sydow is up to no good? Find out if the mismatched cops are still arresting ten years later when you donate for Platinum Level and download the fun.

King Kong Lives

Does the thought of a well-endowed female gorilla make your heart pump a little faster? One supersized simian is certainly warm to Lady Kong’s form - picking himself up from the broken pavement after his 1976 tumble from the World Trade Center, and continuing on in the 1986 sequel King Kong Lives. Is Linda Hamilton proud to oversee the birth of another miracle baby two years after delivering John Connor, or should she terminate her agent for casting her in this monkey business? The podcasters are off the chain and ready to battle, so Listen Now.

Rush Hour 2 - For Annual Subscribers

King Kong (1976)

Long before she became a fixture on American Horror Story, Jessica Lange practiced her screaming skills as the aspiring actress abducted by King Kong in a colorful 1976 remake. Is the big ape willing to play second banana to Jeff Bridges, as a primate paleontologist also falling for the buxom blonde?  And can oil executive Charles Grodon strike it rich by putting Kong on tour, after Skull Island proves not to have the dinosaurs needed to produce a gasoline fortune?  Arnie, Jakob and Stuart answer the distress call of this disaster movie when you Listen Now.

Rush Hour - For Annual Subscribers

Jackie Chan cut his teeth (and every other body part) in Hong Kong kung fu flicks and police stories throughout the 1970s and 80s, but he didn’t achieve Hollywood superstardom until he hitched his wagon to the 1998 action-comedy Rush Hour. Was Chan’s biggest stunt partnering with renegade cop Chris Tucker, and bumbling his way through Los Angeles tourist spots on the road to rescue a kidnapped 11-year-old girl?  Find out if their sweet-and-sour chemistry gives the buddy cop formula a new flavor when you Donate for this Platinum Level series.
