The Enforcer

Clint Eastwood is used to calling the shots in a Dirty Harry film, but his status as The Enforcer is challenged after he's partnered with female cadet Tyne Daly (TV's Cagney & Lacey) for his third big-screen adventure.  Can the pair bust a well-armed group of radicals who have moved into the abandoned Alcatraz prison, and taken the Mayor of San Francisco hostage?  And has Cold Bold Callahan gotten so desperate for love that he's willing to pay $75 for a night with a blowup doll?  You'll have a marvelous time too when you donate for the Silver Level this spring.     

Godzilla vs. Kong

Godzilla Vs. Kong is a rivalry as old as the Hollow Earth (or at least the Japanese showdown of 1963), and now their battle to be crowned King of the Monsters is 2021's biggest movie event.  Will the Now Playing hosts cheer for the big ape as he breaks free of Project Monarch chains that have shackled him since Skull Island?  Or is the angry green lizard still our fav, despite being slandered as the bad guy by a biotech company angling to unleash a robot monster of its own?  Find out if this final round of the MonsterVerse is a winner when you Listen Now!

Magnum Force {For Annual Subscribers}

Clint Eastwood uses his Magnum Force to shoot down critics who called Dirty Harry fascist by introducing an even more extreme breed of law enforcement in the sequel. Is the iconoclastic cop ready to grow his hair long and stand with the hippies against vigilante justice? Or will he endorse a motorcycle death squad who guns down criminals in the street?  And are Callahan’s newly revealed skills riding bikes and flying planes the reason why chicks suddenly find him so dang irresistible?  You’ll fall in love with our Silver Level Series too when you Donate Today.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Godzilla won the box office when he took down a MUTO (and most of San Francisco) in his 2014 Hollywood comeback. Now Mothra, Rodan, and all of the Big Lizard's former co-stars burst forth from the Hollow Earth to challenge the throne. Have eco-terrorists made it possible for three-headed Ghidorah to be crowned 2019's King of the Monsters?  And are these Titan battles stranger than the things Millie Bobby Brown witnesses on a daily basis with her bickering scientist parents?  Myth is our compass as Now Playing returns to the MonsterVerse.

Dirty Harry {For Annual Subscribers}

Clint Eastwood took cop movies and hippie San Francisco back to the days of Wild West vigilantism when he strutted onto the big screen in 1971 as no-nonsense police detective Dirty Harry Callahan.  Does the lawman have the right idea on how to handle those punks who exploit justice system loopholes? And is there enough firepower in his .44 Magnum to take out a sadistic serial killer hellbent on committing daily assassination until the Mayor pays his ransom?  It's your lucky day when you Donate for Now Playing's Spring Silver Level Series and find out.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League

It was a decisive victory for The Legion of Doom when Warner Bros. executives handed Zack Snyder's unfinished superhero team-up Justice League to Avengers mastermind Joss Whedon. Internet trolls were not kind to this last-minute attempt to leave the Darkseid behind, and tell jokes at Superman's wake.  Their aggressive social media campaign has paved the way for the original director to assemble a four-hour cut that promises to fix all the problems in the 2017 release. Find out if Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie have hope again for the DCU.  Listen now!
