May 30th, 2018 | 1 hr 33 mins
Another year, another Star Wars movie. This one, at least, has Harrison Ford....’s character. Does Solo: A Star Wars Story prove itself worthy of such a self-conscious title? Tune in to find out! Oh, and Deadpool's back too (2?), and it even got Josh to the theater.

February 27th, 2018 | 57 mins 42 secs
It’s tough to think of two movies more different from each other than Annihilation and Game Night, but here we are. The Screeners are reviewing both in this double feature episode, and they also have a special contest (with actual prizes!) to announce, so at least that’s worth tuning in for, right?

January 17th, 2018 | 59 mins 42 secs
