Riley liked Power Rangers for what it was. Chris and his family found Beaty and The Beast to be ok but not better than the original. Graham wished Life never made it into movie theaters. Two super hero trailers that show the difference between DC and Marvel. One good monster of a DVD and no earthly reason to see new releases. This episode will make you want to drain the tent!

Chris found Office Christmas Party to be a by the numbers comedy that was not great. Chip and Graham liked the throw back nature of LA LA Land.
