    Episode 157: Ready Podcast One (Top 5 Video Game Adaptations)

    We're sorry, Fivers, but your princess is in another castle, and it definitely took J and Q searching through a lot of castles to find enough good movies for a Top 5 Video Game Adaptations episode. In honor of the release of Sonic the Hedgehog, we decided it's time, once and for all, to talk about video game movies. Select your character and Press Start to re-live the majesty of the 1990s and 2000s when a new video game movie was released almost every year...and Uwe Boll only directed 90% of them!

    In this episode, we help you finally learn the difference between Paul W.S. Anderson, Wes Anderson, and Paul Thomas Anderson once and for all, and lead you on an 8-bit adventure into the dregs of American cinema. Are there any gems to be found in the sale bin at Wal-Mart? Join us this week as we pull out the cartridge, blow in it, and see if we can't make this thing work.

    Episode 156: High Five: The Experience (Top 5 Live Movie Experiences We'd NEVER Want to Do)

    This week, High Five: The Podcast is jumping out of your speakers and bringing the experience straight to your face! We were inspired by Disney's recent news of launching real-life movie experiences with some of their films, but instead of listing the movies we'd want to live through, we're counting down the Top 5 Live Movie Experiences We'd NEVER Want to Do. 


    We'll be talking about favorite movie experiences as well, but mainly we're going to want to avoid WW2 and a lot of American history. By the time this episode is over, you'll feel like we're part of your family. We'll even be coming over for Thanksgiving dinner to make things uncomfortable!

    Episode 155: I Guess We're Talking About Animals (Top 5 Animal-Starring Movies)

    Most movies star human beings, but that's SO boring! This week, J and Q are taking a trip to the proverbial movie zoo and counting down the Top 5 Movies Starring Animals. Along the way, we realize how little we remember about the book Animal Farm, but definitely remember the weird movies that were made from it, and try and figure out how much Willy was really worth freeing.

    When we're not in the mud with pigs and lost pets, Q and J hypothesize what Bad Boys for Life is all about and how much better it would be if Jacob Tremblay was packing heat in it. Did your favorite talking animals from Disney's vault make the list? What about that one dog movie that made you cry? Find out on this ASPCA-approved episode of High Five: The Podcast!

    (P.S. Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" was playing over you reading this.)

    Episode 154: One Mouse to Rule Them All (Top 5 DIsney/Fox Merger Benefits)

    Who could have assumed that when Powerman 5000 was singing about worlds colliding back in 1999 that they were predicting the entertainment behemoth that Disney has become, especially after their recent acquisition of a majority of the Fox libraries. This week, Q and J put on their pop culture prognosticator hats and dive into the Disney/Fox merger and identify the Top 5 Disney/Fox Merger Benefits that we are looking forward to. Yes, Powerman, this IS what it feels like when worlds collide!

    Along the way, we dive into the mysteries surrounding The New Mutants and what we think the future could be for Deadpool and other X-Men as well as create the word #Disniversification. If you listen closely, you can even hear Disney issue us Cease and Desist orders in real-time. It's a party and everyone is invited, except for all the Fox employees working overtime for their Disney overlords.
