Feed your hyena, strap on your roller-blades, and grab your baseball bat, it's time for Chris and Ev's robot duplicate to tackle Birds Of Prey and the Fabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020). Does the film hit the bullseye with it's arrow crossbow bolt, or is it DC's suicide, squad?

In today's episode of Chris and Ev's precious little life, we conclude Routh-a-thon with what might be Ev's favourite movie, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World (2010). But does Chris agree? Will the two get along, or will there be a clash at Medium Shift? What happens when they replace puns, alliteration, and an air of superiority with musically choreographed fist-fights? Will they get the deposit back on the studio? Have I asked too many questions and killed all tension and excitement this description is meant to build? Find out in today's episode of... s**t, I've run out of characters.

This episode Chris and Ev try something different by focusing their gaze on a character as opposed to text in the very first Medium Shift Character Analysis (patent pending). First on the list is the continuation of Routhathon with a look at the rascally Routh's turn as The Atom in Legends of Tomorrow (and also other assorted CW shows. But mostly Legends). Note this episode was recorded well before the airing of Crisis on Infinite Earths, hence no mention of Routh reprising his role as Superman.

Minishift: Cats (2019)

O, woe and despair for Cats has been aggressively thrust upon humanity like an overweight tabby onto the unwelcome lap of someone with allergies. Join Chris and Ev as they indulge in their trademark overanalysis of this cat-trastrophe of epic proportions.

 

Also apologies but due to some technical issues, Chris' voice in this episode frequently oscillates in and out of the uncanny valley also coincidentally inhabited by the CGI in this film.

Chris and Ev embark on a bizarre adventure with Jojo and his imaginary friend Adolf through the streets of World War 2 Germany and tackle the latest cinematic addition to the Taika Waititi Criterion Collection. Is it worthy of all the praise, or have I erected a shrine and alter to our lord and savior Taika prematurely? Let's find out with Jojo Rabbit (2019).

P.S. At what point does it turn from a cult to a religion? Asking for a friend.

Of course the very first Star Wars (but definitely not the last) property we're to dive into has to be the sequel to one of the most controversial films of this decade. Send us your force and prayers as we tackle the supposed end to the Skywalker saga in Return of the Abrams.

Superman Returns (2006)

This episode Chris and Ev 'Be the Batman' (trademarked Rocksteady) as they enter Gotham to take on its most notorious criminal: those super fast timers at the bottom of the screen that force you to make a decision.
