While his main computer is in the shop, Jon makes due to get his reviews for Hellboy 2019, Little, and Missing Link, and provide some updates about the initial plans laid out for the show.
This Valentine Day's weekend, Jon reviews Alita: Battle Angel, Isn't It Romantic?, and Happy Death Day 2U, then brings back The Love Junkie for 2019 with reviews of West Side Story, Pretty in Pink, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Silver Lining's Playbook, and Michael Bolton's Big Sexy Valentine's Day Special.
With a light weekend featuring Miss Bala and a Netflix and Chat on the two Fyre Festival documentaries, Jon spends most of this episode breaking down the nominees for the 2019 Oscars and Razzies and his issues with both. Plus, an extra long Trailer Talk featuring the "Big Game" TV spots and trailers.
Since this week's episode is being released on Christmas Eve, Jon has a special treat. After reviews for Mary Poppins and Mary Poppins Returns, Aquaman, Bumblebee, Second Act, Welcome to Marwen, and They Shall Not Grow Old, we celebrate the holidays like any entertainment producer: a holiday special. Featuring reviews of It's a Wonderful Life, Scrooged, The Grinch, Love Actually, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Happy Holidays from the Popcorn Junkie to you.
Since the only new release near Jon this weekend was the 25th Anniversary rerelease of Schindler's List, Jon has a Netflix and Chat of Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, and Season 1 of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, then a discussion about the ramifications of having no new releases and the hierarchy of release platforms.
