The new Star Wars film is finally here!  Matt Atchity is joined by critic Christy Lemire (filling in for Grae Drake) to discuss the biggest movie of the year.  After a quick rundown of the other wide releases, Christy and Matt share their review of The Force Awakens, and then answer a fan questions about the film and the franchise.

The ubiquitous friend of the show Clint Howard lends both his name and his vast array of anecdotes to the first annual Rotten Tomatoes Clintsgiving. To celebrate the release of his latest film, The Funhouse Massacre, Matt and Grae test a theory that nearly any film that comes out can be accompanied by a relevant story from the man himself. They discuss the week's releases and also recommend some of Clint's other flicks that you and your whole family can enjoy on this long holiday weekend. #Clintsgiving
The Night Before is in theaters this week, and director Jonathan Levine stops by to tell holiday tales of Christmas sweaters, Miley Cyrus, and Hal Ashby, but not in that order.

Matt and Ryan discuss this week’s new movies, and then spend most of the show answering your questions about the latest Bond film, and the James Bond series in general.
A bunch of people sitting in the dark staring at a picture of people pretending to be other people is weird. Michael Shannon knows this. He also knows lots of other stuff too, that he candidly shares with Matt and Grae. There are no Batman v Superman tidbits to share, but there's plenty of Premium Rush talk (along with 99 Homes and Freeheld too). In the first half of the show, Matt and Grae remember which movies use cell phones correctly, and which 80s movies the staff missed last week.
Matt and Grae watch the Victor Frankenstein trailer and remark at the abundant sparks it holds, as well as confessing which movies they have walked out of. They are accused of spoiling The Martian, and spoil several movies you should have already seen like 17 years ago out of spite. And finally, the entire RT staff comes together to save kids who have to sit through terrible movies their parents are forcing them to watch.
This week Matt and Grae recommend some movies you should check out as they answer your questions. They also discuss the movies coming out this week including the scary Goosebumps. Plus, they weigh in on Jessica Jones, their thoughts on piracy, and Doctor Who.
Dr. Spaceman himself Chris Parnell joins the tomatoes to discuss The Peabody and Sherman Show.

Letters from listeners reveal their true feelings on Reality Bites and Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor Who.
Matt, Sarah, and Grae take on a passionate advocate for Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Sarah gives some steamy recommendations on shows to watch on Starz, and then you guys really needed to vent about reboots. Hear thoughts on Ghostbusters and Road House...and why Matt and Grae are going to get their asses kicked.

Last week's Your Opinion Sucks show caused an avalanche of emails about movies and TV shows you love and hate, so we picked the opinions that suck the most to share. We discuss Sucker Punch, House of Sand and Fog, Rick and Morty, and Fear The Walking Dead. Also, prepare yourself for a fan letter to Matt that causes a funky baseline to come out of nowhere.
Critics Leonard Maltin (legendary film critic & historian), Alonso Duralde (critic for The Wrap, The Linoleum Knife podcast) and special guest Paul Scheer (How Did This Get Made?, The League) join Matt Atchity and Grae Drake to face off with fans and tell them how wrong they are about the movies they love.

Matt & Grae rap about whether or not Cube and Dre mess up Straight Outta Compton, where Man from UNCLE falls on the spectrum of TV adaptations, if the Cop Car director is going to mess up Spider-Man, and where you can find streaming video tomatometer ratings and why.  When they're done with that, Matt and Sarah bring in Bobcat Goldthwait and the subject of his new documentary Call Me Lucky, Barry Crimmins.
