Mark is an improviser and Rick is just awesome...and the two of them have watched WAY too many movies over the years. In March 2014 they decided to record their frequent film discussions and in 2016 they added a Brian to join in the fun! Together they revisited some of the classic films of their youth at times with a guest...while often getting completely off topic. The cinematic comedy may have wrapped up in 2019 but you can still check out the back episodes to join them in discovering if their childhood favorites held up. Won't you join them at the theater?

Ch. CLXIX: FINALE Part 2 - So Long, Cinemaniacs!
It’s the VERY LAST EPISODE of the podcast (sheds tear) and Mark, Rick and Brian are saying Goodbye after 5 years of having extreme movie fun in style. The fellas share some stats about the podcast's run including the Most Popular Episode, the Longest Episode and the primary Go-To Actors that have appeared in most of their "reviewsits." The lads connect the last movie they covered to the very first movie to come full circle, play the "Batman Sound FX Game" and the "Five Dollar Bin Favorite Characters Game." The gents also read off the final completed Stack Rank List, point out which films were the biggest surprises and biggest disappointments to them upon revisit and Brian gifts a very special present to Mark's future cinemaniac. Before providing their final words, the "Box Office Buds" get a last bad transition in there, allow a sign off from Mrs. Chip and friends....and have just one more trick up their sleeves. Bill and Ted may have created the question of whether the podcast ever existed in the first place but YES IT DID and we THANK YOU, CINEMANIACS!!
Ch. CLXVIII: FINALE Part 1 - Wish (We Had Done) List
It's the Penultimate episode of the podcast and the lads celebrate by sharing some more BIG NEWS from the Mark camp, enjoying some substitute cigars and deciding to save the teary goodbyes until the Part 2 Finale. The gents brainstorm a new Full House spin-off based upon Lori Loughlin being in the news, go into a strange deep dive of the Highlander movies and each share a number of select films that they didn't get to cover over the past 5 years aka the "Wish (We Had Done) List." The fellas also have a mini "reviewsit" of Batman & Robin to finally complete the quadrilogy, run through the list of cold puns uttered by Arnold's Mr. Freeze and come up with some heat puns for a what-could-have-been 5th movie of the series titled "Batman, Robin & Batgirl." There's one episode to go....if you miss this one it will be the BANE of your existence!
Ch. CLXVII: Mini Episode: Sleepy Game Shows and Mystery Themes
With the Final Episodes upon them Mark, Rick and Brian share some final thoughts on the television parody Stay Tuned, while also taking a poll of falling asleep with the TV On vs the TV Off. Inspired by TV Game Shows, the lads get into 'answer mode' by trying to guess the budget of this parody film, the best known for projects for John Ritter out of his great filmography and play a round of the IMDB Keyword game with some hidden themes kept from the players. The lads also recall the interactive Choose-Your-Own-Adventure movie Mr. Payback that they caught in the theater, engage in some saucy Rhyme Time and share the trailers of some more TV-to-Film big screen adaptations currently in production for Hollywood. In a World.....where grown men talk about movies they saw when they were kids, join these "Goofy Game Show Hosts" by tweeting them @5DollarBinPOD to risk it all on some countless cinema categories!
Ch. CLXVI: The Stay Tuned Episode with Returning Guest Josh Damoulakis!
It's the FINAL FOUR EPISODES! Mark, Rick and Brian welcome back returning guest Josh Damoulakis for a "reviewsit" of the TV overload known as Stay Tuned. The gents discuss how this television parody movie is extremely difficult to find online or streaming, run through the complete list of shows and commercials that were mocked throughout the film and they get all excited to play the game of "Spot the Spota" once again involving the calling card of frequent "reviewsit" director Peter Hyams. The lads also ponder if Home Improvement got some Tool Time segment ideas from a few of the scenes, they add some more modern shows to update the sadistic programming of 'Hellevision' and engage in quite a lot of talk about donuts. Turn off that TV before you get sucked in (literally) as this one is much safer and also more fun than taking "Doogie fishing"....if you know what we mean!
Ch. CLXV: Mini Episode: A Non-Bogus (and Brady) Mini "Reviewsit"
Mark, Rick and Brian share some final thoughts on Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, while also holding a mini "reviewsit" of its sequel Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. The lads learn of a different transportation mode originally intended before the time traveling phone booth was used, how there was supposed to be a 3rd member of Wyld Stallyns named 'Bob' and how Bill & Ted were almost the cause of the Titanic sinking. The fellas also research the history of the Ziggy Pig ice cream challenge, recap some disturbing episodes of sitcoms such as that time Jesse James murdered The Brady Bunch or when Punky Brewster fought a fire cave demon and they present the epic conclusion to their new tale "Bill & Ted's Unprecedented Expedition." Just punch in @5DollarBinPOD into the magical phone booth keypad and get ready to join these "Brady Bandits" in some rather skewed looks at history!
Ch. CLXIV: The Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure Episode from the San Dimas High School Auditorium!
Mark, Rick and Brian have another time traveling "reviewsit" with this time on the most awesome Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. After taking advantage of the rules of circular time travel, the lads ponder the questions of whether the phone booth was inspired by Doctor Who, if Bill is the leader of the duo and what high school clique the heroes would have belonged to. The gents also point out the cringe worthy scene, talk rumors of a potential 3rd film and express interest in a side movie where we'd see all the goodbyes to the historical friends post-project. On top of that, the fellas learn of Mark's brotherly saloon fights, hear about which Brady Bunch episode traumatized Rick and they pick up some more characters from history along the way. So much most excellent goodness from these "Myld Stallyns" you'll have to travel back to the start of the episode again and again to catch it all!
