We celebrate the Olympics by picking fictional characters we would love to see participate in certain events. Justin provides a number of news items during “This Just In.” We also give our recap of the recent The Night Of episodes and discuss how the limited series might end.
Mike explores his fetish for “Nine Lives,” we kind of review The Italian Job, and we talk about the MLB trade deadline.
Next episode, we will be talking about the Olympics and debating which fictional characters would be great at certain Olympic events.
In this episode, we had a lot of fun with our main segment by debating each others’ favorite movies until there was one movie remaining. We also review HBO’s newest limited-series “The Night Of”, talk about the craze of Pokemon Go, and mention a few upcoming concerts we’re excited for.
Next episode: We analyze the action/crime film Italian Job (2003).
Rob’s team is completed and he has a total gross of over $500 million. Meanwhile, Mike is in second place at the moment with about $311 million, with Sausage Party remaining. Justin rolled heavily on the late August momentum and still has four films left on his team. Can he overcome the $150 million deficit to surpass Mike for second place? He’ll need Suicide Squad to be an absolute smash hit, and for Jason Bourne to repeat its Bourne Ultimatum numbers, but it is certainly possible. Stay tuned!
In our 20th episode, the guys from War on Pop Culture showcases their main segment: a huge conversation on the Game of Thrones Season 6 finale. But that’s not all!

Strap yourself in, this is one bumpy roller-coaster ride of an episode!
