While Corona Virus has shut down the film industry, we thought it might be a great time to look back at an interesting phenomenon in history! Rather than just running a News of the Week podcast, we're shifting gears! Welcome to our journey through the films that finished 100th in the Box Office for a given year. Using Box Office Mojo as our source, we will jump over the last 20 years of movies to check out some truly bizarre, fun and silly movies to occupy this spot. 

Our first film, just in time for its 20th anniversary, is the infamous Battlefield Earth. Starring John Travolta, Barry Pepper, and Forrest Whitaker, we discuss the sci-fi failure that literally killed the studio that released it.

00:00 - 48:00 - Battlefield Earth Discussion

 48:00 - End - Get ready for Ella Enchanted and check out some TV Recommendations.

We're stuck at home, but before Covid-19 ravaged the world, we recorded a podcast. Despite only being recorded a week ago, this feels like a time capsule. 

00 - 30:00: 'Onward' Review

30:00 - 47:00: The Best and Most Frustrating of Pixar

47:00 - 50:00: Weebies Open for Voting on 3/20, Artemis Fowl, & Josh Gad's Rough Year

50:00 - 53:30: AJ's TV Recommends: 'Devs,' 'Dave,' 'What We Do in the Shadows' 

53:30 - 55:30: Aaron's Video Game Recommends: Deep Rock Galactic

55:30 - END: AJ and Aaron rant about other movies on the horizon and touch a little on Covid-19 (again, recorded before Tom Hanks diagnosis and the NBA shutdown). Our excitement for the June lineup still stands (because those movies will still be good).
