This week on the podcast, Zach and Chris take a break from virus news to take a trip back in time to talk about movies that were released around this time in different years of the past, like Mad Max, Major Payne, and Romeo Must Die along with newer releases like Uncut Gems, Jumanji: The Next Level and more.

A ton of movies available this weekend to close out September, but only two are worth checking out according to the critics.
Ant-Man stayed on the top of the box office as all the new releases had mediocre to terrible debuts, including an incredibly underperforming Pixels.
