Welcome to THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold catch up on older movies one or both of them have never seen before, as chosen by YOU, our listeners!

This week on THE STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney dive into THE BLACK HOLE, Disney's epic response to STAR WARS, with an all-star cast orbiting an unthinkable void in space! It's a big budget sci-fi horror movie starring Anthony Perkins, Maximilian Schell, Rob Forster, Ernest Borgnine, Roddy McDowall, Slim Pickens and more!

THE BLACK HOLE was a gigantic box office disaster, but does it really suck, or is it an underappreciated cinematic spectacle?

This week, Bibbs and Witney read emails from listeners wondering what our hosts dream vacations would be, whether a film's box office take really matters in the long run (or only under certain conditions), songs Bibbs and Witney want to hear in more movies, the intricate plot of a STAR TREK: THE ANIMATED series episode, and an invaluable perspective on autism representation in film and cinema!

Welcome to THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold catch up on older movies one or both of them have never seen before, as chosen by YOU, our listeners!

This week on THE STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney pluck out THE APPLE, a cult classic movie musical from 1980, about a pair of idealistic musicians who get sucked into a hellish disco/new wave nightmare hellscape of sex, drugs and rock and roll!

THE APPLE premiered to boos and vandalized movie theaters, but now it's got a reputation as a charmingly weird relic of a bygone era. But how good is it, REALLY?

The year was 1970, and one of the most expensive television shows in the world was LANCELOT LINK: SECRET CHIMP, a spy spoof for children, starring real chimpanzees as secret agents and their offensively stereotyped roster of villains!

Who the heck was this show made for? Why the heck is it so bad? Is it really the worst live-action tv series we've ever reviewed? And was it... CANCELED TOO SOON?

William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are about to answer all these questions and more!

Welcome to THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED STREAMING CLUB, where film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold catch up on older movies one or both of them have never seen before, as chosen by YOU, our listeners!

This week on THE STREAMING CLUB, Bibbs and Witney explore one of the most notorious duds of the 1990s, based on one of the most popular novels of the 1980s! THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES stars Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith and Morgan Freeman, and completely fails to dramatize, satirize, or suggest it knows anything at all about social tensions in New York City.

Is THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES the worst Tom Hanks movie ever made? Let's find out!
