DC League of Super-Pets
Superman and Batman have been taken prisoner, so it’s up to their dogs Krypto (Dwayne Johnson) and Ace (Kevin Hart) to lead the rescue team in the first big screen adventure for the DC League of Superpets. Did deranged guinea pig Lulu (Kate McKinnon) learn enough about being a supervillain from Lex Luther (Marc Maron) to successfully engineer an orange kryptonite plot that expels the Justice League from the planet? And will the Man of Steel have to pick Lois Lane over Man’s Best Friend in the end? Listen Now as Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart sniff it out!
Would Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart pass up an opportunity to review a new Jordan Peele movie? Nope. That’s why Now Playing Patrons are being treated to an out-of-this-world podcast this August about his latest filthy spectacle. Can siblings Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer pay off family debts by photographing the UFO beaming horses off their movie ranch? And is that a flying saucer poking through those Agua Dulce clouds, or an oversized dinner plate meant to serve up tourists to the aliens? Donate to hear the hosts make a hearty meal out of this movie.
Before there was a League of DC Superpets, there was Underdog… the clumsy police beagle turned into a flying canine crime fighter by mad scientist Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones). But can Walt Disney turn a 1960s Saturday morning cartoon created by cereal makers into something that satisfies the tastes of a new generation of superhero fans weaned on Richard Donner’s Superman? And what can K-9 star Jim Belushi teach his four-legged partner about making a funny family film? Never fear, Now Playing is all you need to hear! Listen Now!

Midnight Sun puts a new light on Stephanie Meyer’s first novel by retelling Twilight through the silver eyes of Edward the vampire.

And what do the rest of the Cullen clan think about a mortal girl from Arizona taking up so much space in their sibling’s head? Join Stuart and Jakob as they put this book series to bed.
Underworld: Blood Wars
After five years living in the shadows, Kate Beckinsale returns to the Underworld universe ready to kick Lycan ass and win the Blood Wars for the vampires. But can the single mother prevent enemies on both sides of the conflict from hunting down and drinking the hybrid blood of her runaway daughter Eve? And will Selene find true friends or just new hairdos when she follows the Northern Lights to a frozen palace full of blonde bloodsuckers? Join Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie as they wrap up this franchise and send it off to the Sacred World of podcasting. Listen Now!
Book Review: Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
Bella Swan grows up fast in Breaking Dawn - dealing with marriage, motherhood, and rigor mortis all in one giant Twilight conclusion. Will author Stephanie Meyer give her undead Heathcliff and Cathy the happy ending that’s so far eluded their teenage courtship? And are things better or worse between Edward and Jacob now that the werewolf has given up on Bella and imprinted on her baby girl instead? Jakob and Stuart are ready to break it all down now!
I love hearing Arnie and Stuart stories
Been listening to these guys for a good while Best movie reviewers around, beside Arnie being annoying most of the time my only gripe is their hate for younger generations. If they don’t get something it’s because the movie is for millennials lol
Edit Arnie lost all credibility saying Lego Batman is his favorite Batman movie
Get rid of Arnie and this review goes to 4
Not everything is 9/11
Listening to all the podcasts and it’s a joke anymore guarantee you that you can’t make it through one episode without a 9/11 reference even lord of the rings a book that’s been out years before the event
As for the hosts: one’s a so called “completest” can’t complete a series to save their life
One’s voice really is grating on me they constantly need “donations” to pay for their horrible shows all in all NOT RECOMMENDED
