The Number One Movie in America
The Number One Movie in America
Aaron Kleiber, Robin Hitchcock, Kahmeela Adams, Sean Collier
BOX OFFICE GOLD, ONE SHOW AT A TIME! Nearly every week, there’s a new NUMBER ONE MOVIE IN AMERICA. Let’s see how four decades of Americans have done at selecting movies, shall we? In each new episode of THE NUMBER ONE MOVIE IN AMERICA, we’ll randomly select a movie that spent at least one weekend atop the box-office charts. Whatever it is, we’ll have to watch it. And tell you whether or not you should. A rebranding of the longrunning review podcast “You Can’t Handle the Truth,” THE NUMBER ONE MOVIE IN AMERICA is Kahmeela Adams, Sean Collier, Robin Hitchcock and Aaron Kleiber. It is recorded at the iHeartMedia Podcast Studio in Pittsburgh. Follow us! @Number1MoviePod @The_RuggedAngel @SeanCollierPgh @HitchDied @AaronKleiber Contains Adult Language
The Game Plan
As Dwayne Johnson looked to leave The Rock behind, he tried his hand at the first of several big-guy-little-kid family comedies, THE GAME PLAN. Does this logistically distinct from the NFL football romp add up to much of anything? Can anyone, in fact, smell what The Dwayne is cookin'? Plus, everyone reveals their favorite film of 2023! What are our picks? We're not giving them away! Listen to the episode!

Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story
Get ready for kickin' dudes, makin' boasts and ... surprisingly little information about the life of Bruce Lee! It's DRAGON: THE BRUCE LEE STORY, the ill-timed but decidedly fun pseudo-biopic about the Hollywood legend. You picked it as part of our latest movie draft; how did we like it? Plus, a loaded week of recommendations and awards-bait discussions, including endorsements of MAESTRO, ANATOMY OF A FALL, LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND, THE COLOR PURPLE and many more!

Rocky IV
Merry Christmas! Merry Russian punching robot Christmas! Okay, this is probably the least holiday-ish holiday special we've ever done, but it takes place on Christmas Day! And there's a ton of snow! It counts, right? Eh, who cares, it's Rocky IV, we just wanted to watch it. If he dies, he dies! This week's recommendations are basically infinite, but Sean goes all-in on POOR THINGS, Robin is just as enthused about MAY DECEMBER and Kahmeela likes THRILLER 40.

In space, no one can hear you breathe frantically for an hour and a half. In movie theaters, though, they absolutely can. We're divided on GRAVITY, one of the biggest Oscar darlings of all time that asks the question: Why do we bother with space? Plenty of recommendations this week, including NYAD, MAESTRO, BARBIE and more!

Some Came Running
What is this movie? What is it about? Who came running, and where did they go? We don't know, the movie doesn't know, we're not even sure Frank Sinatra knows! But SOME CAME RUNNING was a decent hit in the '50s, when people just wanted to see famous people drink on a large screen! This week's recommendations: Sean wants you to shut up and see THE MARVELS already, Robin is surprisingly all-in on HELLO MARY LOU: PROM NIGHT 2, and Kahmeela's back with more cult stuff!

The Messengers
We assure you this is a real movie! Before Twilight, Kristen Stewart moved to ... a sunflower farm? With ... Dylan McDermott? And ran into ... gray ghosts? It's like a Mad Lib. Anyway, find out what the heck THE MESSENGERS is! Recommendations: Robin and Sean both want you to see THE KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON, while Kahmeela recommends THE DEVIL ON TRIAL and wants the kids from FRIDAY THE 13TH to put some damn pants on.

The Fly
Spooky season rolls on, and you should be afraid! Very afraid, in fact! David Cronenberg's THE FLY is both gross and thirsty, yet it's a stone-cold classic thanks to its (very handsome) leading couple! Sean and Kahmeela unite to praise SAW X and pan PET SEMETARY: BLOODLINES, while Robin lightly endorses the classic INVISIBLE MAN.

They're all gonna laugh at you! CARRIE is one of the few horror movies to get multiple Oscar nominations — and it was the first-ever adaptation of a Stephen King movie. Nearly 50(!) years on, though, does it still pack a punch? (Yes, obviously.) This week's recommendations: Sean gives the softest possible recommendation to EXPEND4BLES, Kahmeela rather enjoyed THE EQUALIZER 3 and Robin can tell you HOW TO BLOW UP A PIPELINE.

Bond is back, and now he's cinema's horniest Han Solo! Star Wars crated a space craze (this was out at the SAME TIME as Alien), and even James Bond got swept into the stars! But will a very tacky entry in the Bond franchise hold up? More importantly, will Jaws find love? Kahmeela does NOT recommend that Depp/Heard nonsense on Netflix, Sean hangs out with old friends like THE BABADOOK, E.T. and FRANKENSTEIN, and Robin watched three Kings Kong!

The Little Treat Film Festival
We hit an unprecedented triple Bingo and declared it was time for a little treat — in the form of each of us picking a movie we love (NOT a box-office champ!) to share with the group. Robin offers BETWEEN THE LINES, Sean presents CARNIVAL OF SOULS and Kahmeela brings THE FIVE HEARTBEATS in a weird but satisfying triple-feature!
