Alien Covenant hits this weekend. Pirates the weekend after. Spider-Man, Transformers and on and on. So this week, we’re going to discuss what franchises don’t need a reboot, they don’t need new blood, they just need to be put down and retired.

We focus on franchises we both love and hate. Nobody is safe with us at the wheel!

We also discuss Memorial Day Weekend movie experiences, reviews of Snatched and King Arthur, our HO Game of the Week and more!
