2019 was a superb year for film. From massive blockbuster hits like Avengers: Endgame to indie international cinematic masterpieces like Parasite, it had something for everyone. In the midst of that year, came a star-studded whodunnit that proved that new, original intellectual properties still had the ability to draw people to theaters. That film, Knives Out, is the predecessor to the subject of our review this week, Glass Onion: ...

Out with the new Bob, in with the old Bob? It has been 3 weeks since our last What's Poppin' episode and, in that time, Disney made the shocking announcement that Bob Chapek is "stepping down" and Bob Iger is returning as CEO. Bob Iger has perhaps the most illustrious résumé of any Disney CEO other than Walt himself. But now he returns to a company that is struggling financially and does so with a 2-year deadline to...

*inhales* WAKANDA FOREVER! We have reached the end of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

A Netflix Original Sequel? That’s right! For the first time in PFB history, we are reviewing a sequel to a Netflix Original Film. How is this possible? Well, if you look back, Netflix Original films have not been around as long as you might think. In fact, Enola Holmes was one of the first Netflix films to be successful enough to warrant a sequel, so it is appropriate that the subject of our first Netflix sequel review is Enola Hol...

When you think of the films The Nightmare Before Christmas and Coraline there are probably two of quick thoughts that pop into your head: 1) the films’ iconic, stop-motion animation style and 2) the authors, Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman (respectively), that created those worlds and the characters within them. What may not be readily apparent is that that they are directed by the same visionary director, Henry Selick. Well, after a 13...

Halloween is over which means we are heading into prime movie-watching season with both holiday blockbusters and award-hopefuls upon us. But, before this rich season of new films kicks off next week with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, we must discuss all the movie and TV news floating around this week. Why? Because, like the mail (shoutout Newman), the news never stops! From new series announcements to casting announcements in maj...

Talk about lucking out! Of course, we are reviewing this past weekend’s biggest box office winner, DC’s Black Adam. But, on top of that, the biggest DC movie news (possibly ever?) dropped just hours before our recording. So, stick around after our Black Adam review to hear our thoughts on James Gunn and Peter Safran taking over as co-CEOs of the newly-minted DC Studios including where Black Adam, that big cameo, and all of the othe...

Evil dies tonight! Or does it? This week, we are reviewing Halloween Ends, but perhaps the film should’ve been titled ‘Halloween Ends?’ and that’s not a spoiler. See, legendary horror director John Carpenter has been non-committal about this being the end of the series, citing money as the rationale to keep it going. And, while the ending of this movie seems to have an opinion on whether the franchise will continue, we all know any...

We've got a huge week of Movie & TV news for you on this edition of What's Poppin'! Moments before we recorded, The Hollywood Reporter dropped a massive article detailing some of the future DC films and shows that are in the works including a new Superman movie with Henry Cavill, a mystery James Gunn movie, and more! Also, almost every week we have to leave a placeholder in our agenda for whatever Marvel story happe...

This week’s movie review is… well, not a movie at all really. Marvel Studios’ Werewolf by Night is being classified as a “special presentation” and in this straight to streaming age, there’s really no better way to describe it. Starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Laura Donnelly, Marvel’s Werewolf by Night special represents a massive departure from the typical Marvel formula both in terms of medium and content. In our Werewolf by Night...

For the first time in what feels like a long time, we had a light movie and tv news week. This may sound like a bad thing but it's actually not! Now we can talk about some things we don't always get to like the great shows on tv right now, just what exactly is happening at the box office, and whether or not Rotten Tomatoes is good for the film industry. Of course, we'll also discuss the brand new The Super Mario Bros. M...

This movie broke the record for biggest premiere on Disney+ to-date, thanks to the many devoted members of the cult like following for the first Hocus Pocus film. But now the question is: were all those streaming hours worth it? In our Hocus Pocus 2 review we go full spoiler mode an...

When I heard they were making a movie called The Woman King starring Viola Davis, I figured it had to be a documentary. Viola Davis is undoubtedly the woman king of Hollywood thanks to her Academy Award Winning acting ability, but The Woman King is not a documentary. Instead, Viola Davis co-stars with Lashana Lynch, John Boyega, Thuso Mbedu, and more in the fierce and smashmouth true story of the Agojie warriors. “Based on a true s...

Though no one seems to be asking for them, the Disney Live-Action Remakes just keep coming. Okay, that sounds a bit harsh. The truth is that the live-action remakes are not all bad, some have even been quite good. But the struggle that each of the remakes has to overcome is providing a reason for its existence. So, here we are again. This time, Disney has decided to remake the beloved 1940 animated classic, Pinocchio. In our Live A...

Coming off of a historically bad box office weekend, there is a ton of exciting new movies and shows to look forward to this Labor Day weekend. In this episode, we'll preview all of the great content headed our way including (of course) Prime Video's The Rings of Power. Additionally, major moves appear to be coming to both major Superhero studios as DC Films is about ready to hand the reigns over to Walter Hamada's succ...

I’m not sure if everyone has noticed, but the term “Netflix Movie” is becoming increasingly more common these days. Not only that, but 9 out of 10 times when this term is used, it is used in a derogatory way, like “Hallmark Movie.” Something to keep in mind as, in this week’s episode, we embark on our Day Shift review (it’s a Netflix movie). On paper, this movie has everything you could ask for in an action comedy: vampires, violen...

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
