What did critics make of a cult classic before it earned its cult status? In this weekly podcast, hosts Jacqueline Coley, Mark Ellis, and guests go deep and settle the score on some of the most beloved – and despised – movies and TV shows ever made, directly taking on the statement we hear from so many fans: “Rotten Tomatoes is wrong.”

jaqueline coley is without question the most racist person I have ever heard spew propaganda. I dare anyone to listen to an episode of this show and not find her dragging race into it. I don't watch films so I can be lectured to and there is NO WAY I will subscribe to a podcast that promotes this garbage. P.S. mark ellis, wtf? you are so much better than this. Do you need some money or something? This easily would be my favorite podcast but until I hear that the racist has been fired I am done.

angry birds is not a movie, it's a cartoon. movie = live action. so it should not be a part of the equation.

Jaqueline sounds like the kind of person who just doesn't like science fiction. If she apparently watched this movie 3 times, why did she not take the time to look up the source material? Likewise with the other fella. Robots!? They're cyborgs people, get it straight. Also, as far as female empowerment is concerned, if this film ever gets a sequel, you'll see Alita become the most badass warrior you could possibly imagine.

TLOTR: The Two Towers came out in 2002. And for the record, Half Blood Prince is the best HP movie. Order Of The Phoenix was the worst HP movie. It was horrible that, the longest book of the HP book series, they made it into one of the shortest HP movies. So much vital content & details were omitted for the film, I couldn't believe it.
