Nicolas Cage flies a plane in this week's episode of Stop the Movie! Will he land it? Will he crash it? Will his daughter forgive him for cheating on her mother? Will the dwarf overcome his xenophobia and inferiority complex? All these questions are answered, but only to distract you from the fact that this is a movie about the rapture that has little to do with the rapture! Who would have ever guessed that a film starring Nicolas Cage based off of the same source material as a Kirk Cameron movie would suck this bad! Grab your U2 tickets, take off your wedding ring, and join us as we lose faith with Left Behind! With special guest host Tim Ferlito!

This week we dive into the chilling depths of the movie that brought an abrupt end to the Batman franchise, 1997's Batman & Robin! George Clooney dons the cape and cowl and nippled suit in Joel Schumacher's second attempt at ruining Batman for years to come. The caped crusader, joined by the eternally grating Robin, are plunged into a world of intrigue and ice when they come up against their lamest villains yet, Poison Mae West and Mr. Jack Frost, who have hatched a plan to destroy all life on earth and then repopulate it with the plant from Little Shop of Horrors. When Alfred's annoying niece Barbara joins the action as the judo chopping, motorcycle racing Batgirl, our heroes must band together to save every last life in Gotham City from an icy doom. Plus, ice = nice. Grab your batskates, fill up on diamonds, and join us as we chill out with Batman & Robin!

Well, it's finally here. After months and months of teasing, we're finally reviewing Theodore Rex... It is a sad, sad day. Theodore Rex reluctantly stars Whoopi Goldberg as Katie Coltrane, a gruff police officer who is teamed up with a go-getter cop named Teddy to solve a murder. The catch? Teddy is a DINOSAUR!!!!! Wha-wha-what?!?!?! How wacky! Coltrane's borderline racism towards anthropomorphic dinosaurs get in the way of their partnership, but will they grow closer as they begin to crack the case? Will anybody care by the end of the movie? Nope! Theodore Rex is a film that Whoopi Goldberg tried her damnedest to back out of, but was convinced to stay on when a dump truck of money was unloaded upon her doorstep. Grab your cookies, get your tail under control, and join us as we try to wipe out the entire human race after having to sit through Theodore Rex!
