OPX 21:Nutcrackin’ Easter (Uncredited Jesus)

4/28/2022
It's Easter at The Omniplex! And what better way to celebrate than by talking about.. a Christmas movie?? Yup, this year instead of hiding eggs, you will need to hide your nuts, because this week's movie is 2009's Russian-Hungarian production The Nutcracker: The Untold Story (aka The Nutcracker 3D)! From us shaking our heads in disappoint at an otherwise fantastic cast (Nathan Lane, John Turturro..), and baffling at the unneccesary Nazi imagery, come join us as we take down this bad...

OPX 17: Pooh Corner

1/18/2022
The Omniplex is open, but today we'd like to take you to the Hundred Acre Wood, to a little place called Pooh Corner. Since we've recorded this episode, A.A.

So come sing the theme song with us! (Which one is up to...

12/10/2021

OPX 13: CoVid: Delta Force

8/26/2021
Ugghhh... Welcome to the... FIFTH... Covid watch cast, where we spill on what we've watched in the quarantine. In this one, we're a tad more pissed off, but still going and absorbing media to cope.

So get yourself vaxxed if you haven't (especially now that the Pfeizer vaccine is officially FDA approved), mask up for others' protection, and stay safe out there...

OPX 12: With Pride Part II, Beyond June

8/6/2021
The Omniplex is open! We're coming at you with Pride a little late this year, but with the question: why shouldn't it go beyond June?

OPX 10: Only Millennium Kidz Know!

5/7/2021
Ready for some semi-recent nostalgia? (We like to think it's semi-recent since the era we're covering is technically in this millennium, but GOD, just humor us..) This week at the Omniplex, we're covering the strange transitional era between 1996 and 2006. We examine the trends as well as the ups and downs of each.

There's finally.. FINALLY... a light at the end of the tunnel. The Omniplex is open, welcome to our 4th.. and hopefully final.. Quarantine watch cast.

OPX 5: The Horse in the Hospital

1/28/2021
Welcome, friends. The Omniplex is open. We aren't normally this heavy on the political side, but the last four years has been tumultuous. Each piece of media produced, whether directly or indirectly, is a product of its time. Now that the horse has officially left the hospital (thank you John Mulaney, for the brilliant and hilarious extended metaphor), we can begin to look at what impact Trump's presidency has had on our film, tv, and music. If media is society holding a mirror up to itself,...
