Episode 196: The Gang Plays Villainous (Top 5 80s Movie Villains)
Sometimes it just feels good to be Bad, and no one likes being bad more than the High Five crew and dastardly dudes/dudettes from the 1980s! The 80s was a decade of decadence. A foray into flamboyance. An era of entertaining evildoers! Okay, you get the idea, we're talking about 80s movies with great bad guys and ranking the Top 5 80s Movie Villains of all time! From horror movie icons to the suave, vaguely European "corporate" villains, we talk through all genres and wicked types. Mia surprises! Q maniacally chuckles! J invades stranger's dreams! And all before breakfast. If you don't listen, we'll drop you off of a building.

Episode 195: The Gang Gets Justice (Zack Snyder's Justice League Discussion)
We never thought we'd see the day where Zack Snyder's Justice League saw the light of day. No really, this type of thing has never happened before! High Five: The Podcast assembles the Mia, Q, and J League to find out if giving Zack Snyder $70 million and a lot of celebrities to play with was a good idea. Whether or not you loved or hated Zack Snyder's Justice League, it isn't just a singular entity. This particular movie, even more so than other DC installments, exists as part of a trilogy of stories, so the gang dives into Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (theatrical and Ultimate edition cuts) as well to see how Zack Snyder's Justice League measures up!

Episode 192: Sidekickin' It (Top 5 Sidekicks in Pop Culture)
Behind every strong hero is an even stronger, usually adopted or unnaturally put in harm's way, sidekick! These pop culture protectors are always playing second fiddle to their more super heroes, so Q, J, and Mia decided it was time to give Sidekicks the spotlight for a bit and figure out the Top 5 Sidekicks in Pop Culture! Most of them become heroes eventually themselves, so let's be nice! Whether you're donning brightly-colored spandex for stealth missions, or helping traverse jewelry to a volcano, sidekicks can many times be the single reason a mission fails or succeeds. The gang pretty much all want to be the Sidekick of the group and there may or may not be a fight to the death. You'll have to listen to find out!

Episode 191: It's Gonna Be Hugh-ge (Top 5 Hugh Jackman Movies)
You know him. You love him. He's danced, sang, and clawed his way into our collective hearts, and on this episode, Mia, Q, and J want to do nothing but subsist on the movie candy that is Hugh Jackman! From his breakthrough performance as Wolverine to help establish superhero movies as a viable franchise type, to his live-action recording of Les Misérables, up to his career-defining turn wearing prosthetic testicles on his face! Is there nothing he can't do? We're going to find out when we rank the Top 5 Hugh Jackman Movies of All Time! It's not all talk about Hugh Jackman, though. We also talk about actors that aren't as good as Hugh Jackman and movies that are similar to The Prestige but didn't star Hugh Jackman. But ultimately, if you don't like Hugh Jackman or Hugh Jackman movies, this episode about Hugh Jackman may not be for Hugh.

Episode 190: Three Flew Over the Coup Coup's Nest (Top 5 Gov't Overthrow Movies)
Get ready because J, Mia, and Q get together to talk about the Top 5 Government Overthrow Movies in honor of all the morons who tried that in early 2021. Do people not watch movies? Coups are hard to pull off, which is made evident by how many movies there are about failed ones! In this episode, the gang dives into the headlines, but only momentarily, because it's way more fun to talk about Hunger Games, graphic novels, and cinema classics that show stories of governments toppling and fascist regimes getting their comeuppances. We also start a rally to #TakeBacktheLetterQ and all contemplate shaving our heads for the cause.

J, Mia, and Q climb aboard their friend-ship and hit the acquaintan-Seas to identify the Top 5 Friends Turned Enemies in movies. Along the way, our relationships are tested, assumptions are scrutinized, and we talk a lot about Jesus for some reason.

Episode 182: The Gang Gets Lost in Andy's Room (Top 5 Pixar Movies)
As Thanksgiving comes to a close and we peacefully transition into the happiest time of the year, Q, Mia, and J thought it would be appropriate to talk about a movie studio that always makes us feel joyous: Pixar. This year, Pixar is giving us a Christmas present in the form of Soul on Dec. 25, so we thought, what better time to survey the CGI landscape and see what kind of competition Soul has to live up to (pun intended)? That's right! There's no better way than making a list of the Top 5 Pixar Movies so far! We dive deep into Riley's head and travel up, up, and away with an old man and a wilderness explorer.

Along the way, Mia will make some enemies, J will experience a horrendous origin event, and Q will seek vengeance on those that wronged him (or something).

Maybe you're more on the road for an alien hitman splatter adventure. Whatever your DC poison, we'll have sampled it by the end of this episode. Come! Drink!
