About the show

Join Sam, Alex & Chris as they rank every science fiction film EVER. Every week we dissect a new film before adding it to a giant and highly scientific ranked list. We review a film a week until we run out of films.

  • 0102: The Re-Ranking II - Predator, Independence Day, Tron

    May 6th, 2019  |  46 mins 28 secs

    It's the 2nd annual re-ranking! Every birthday we each get to pick a film we think has been treated unfairly by the list and re-watch and re-rank it! This year Sam chose Predator, Chris chose Independence Day and Alex chose Tron. You can probably guess which film is the most contentious. Hint: This is the THIRD time we've have to watch it and it's not happening again, no matter what Chris says.
