Avengers: Endgame has taken over the box office and virtually every theater in the country. But other movies are actually showing! Like Long Shot, a romantic comedy that once upon a time would’ve gotten a lot of attention. We review the Charlize Theron-Seth Rogen laughfest.

Also, the Marvel machine keeps churning and dropped a new Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, which we break down. And we take a look at the first episode of HBO’s Chernobyl miniseries. You can listen right here!
