Terminator: Dark Fate

Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) thought she saved humanity from a SkyNet future of robot domination. So it’s ironic that new cybernetic menace Legion has come online in the year 2020, and it’s now Sarah’s Dark Fate to protect new target Dani (Natalia Reyes) from a new Terminator.  Will the arrival of augmented future soldier Grace (Mackenzie Davis) increase their chances of success? Or is it curtains for James Cameron’s flagship franchise (and if so, are they polka dot or butterfly drapes)? Find out when you listen now!

Badlands - For Annual Subscribers

Before he traveled up a Vietnamese river to hunt down a rogue soldier, Apocalypse Now star Martin Sheen took Sissy Spacek (aka Carrie) on a killing spree through the Badlands of South Dakota and Montana. The debut feature from acclaimed writer/director Terrence Malick is often cited as being one of the most influential films of the 1970s.

Zombieland: Double Tap - For Annual Subscribers

Rule #1 when you’re producing a sequel: Bring back everyone that made the first film successful.

Can the foursome teach Generation Z how to fight a ferocious new strain of undead? And is the Oval Office or Graceland a better place to wait out the apocalypse? Find out when you become a Now Playing Silver Level Donor!
