Good day, Mandaters! We come to you from a galaxy far, far away for this episode and by that I mean, we saw this thing in University City. If you didn’t guess by the headline, myself and my guest, Mr. Chris “X” Striegel (This Is Hardcore, Philly Hardcore Shows), took a trip beyond the stars to catch an early screening of the 2nd non-episode installment of the Star Wars universe, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Not only is this the second time that Disney ventured away from the episodic nature of the series, this is also the first solo origin film for

THE MANDATE Episode 23: Time To Make The Chimichangas Again with DEADPOOL 2

Hello! Hello! Hello! Welcome to Episode 23 of The Mandate! This one is exciting, as I’ve finally been able to coordinate a date with the international man of mystery, Mr. Joe Benzon. Joe, for those fortunate enough to be blessed to know him, is one of the all around best guys on the planet. I’ve literally been working on getting him on the show since its inception. So it’s awesome to finally have him on board and with quite a doozy of a film as well: the much anticipated sequel to the 2016 Ryan Reynolds-led raunchy comic flick, Deadpool. We

  Good day, ladies and gents. By the time we post this, the media monster Disney and its Marvel Cinematic Universe will have made $600+ million worldwide with its 19th installment, what it’s been building towards since the first release in Iron Man: Avengers: Infinity War. Unlike Cinepunx, most of the world didn’t get to see this before it was released or again during the first showing of the night it was released, so we waited for you folks until Monday to give you an opportunity to see it before listening to our review of the film. While we warn you

THE MANDATE Episode 21: Two dudes on a RAMPAGE

    Hello friends. I’m back with a colossal episode of The Mandate and no, it’s not because we saw Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s take on the 1980’s arcade classic, Rampage. It’s because I’ve finally been graced with the presence of Mr. Horror Business himself, Justin Lore!! It’s pretty much the first true celebrity I’ve had on this podcast. As I stated, we sat down for a screening of the film adaptation of Rampage and we, surprisingly, had some level of expectations for a film of this nature. For those of you that don’t remember or are too young to

  Good day, citizens of the world. You have stumbled upon, by choice or by chance, a new episode of Cinepunx’s The Mandate. This time around we are seeing John “Jim Halpert” Krasinski’s monster flick, A Quiet Place. The initial buzz around this film was at an all-time high.

Heck, I’ve seen some bad films per RT but I ended up loving them (see: Pacific Rim 2). However,
