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.

Episode 189: The Gang Gets Consoled (Top 5 Video Game Consoles)
It's a debate as old as time, well, rather a debate as old as the early 90s when dueling video game systems competed in the market. Mia, our resident gamer, and her humble cohorts, J and Q, dive into a discussion that goes through every platform, every console, and damn near every SEGA iteration, to finally land our Top 5 Video Game Consoles of All Time list! Whether we're talking about Q's weird, irrational hatred of Mario, or J's obsession with little-known adventure games, you can bet that Mia is there to keep everyone in line. Find out which consoles blew our minds and which ones changed our lives on this episode of High Five: The Podcast!

Episode 188: The Gang Tickles Their Inner Children (Top 5 Kids Movies Secretly For Adults)
Certain movies remind us what it's like to be a child. You have your Toy Stories and your American Tailses that always hold special places in our hearts, but then you have those other movies. The ones you only realize over time that, although you may have watched this as a child, it was only waiting like a sleeper cell for you to be an adult to reveal it's TRUE meanings. Q, Mia, and J look deep inside and confront their inner children and find the Top 5 Kids Movies That Are Secretly For Adults. This is deeper than cartoons that make poop jokes, we're looking for adult themes in movies with animated rabbits, robotic goliaths with human hearts, pretty much anything made by Pixar. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll call your parents and ask them for a movie night with your friends. Join us for this long-awaited sleepover!

Episode 187: Frenemies with Benefits (Top 5 Friends Turned Enemies in Pop Culture)
No matter if you're starting a company with your college yuppie friends, or trying to stop mankind from slaughtering your people for their mutant powers, friendships are hard. In the happiest of movies, friendships endure, but some of the most compelling stories are actually about friendships falling apart. 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. There's magic, computers, pistols, backstabs, and mechanic bodysuits all in this one episode. What are you waiting for, grab your friends (soon to be enemies) and listen!

Wait it's not the ghost of Christmas "presents"!? It's Christmas "present"? Ohhhhhhhhhh... Well, let's be honest, 2020 was a bit of a weird year. Okay, okay, it was crap! Everyone was fighting with each other, no one could leave the house, everyone felt sick, and all we wanted to do was take a 12-month nap. So, pretty much, 2020 was exactly like our family holiday gatherings! The whole gang is gathering this week to talk about the year 2020, our Christmas stories of old, and finally ranking the Top 5 Christmas Gone Wrong Movies of all time! From zombies and monsters invading towns to sociopaths and Griswolds, we're counting down all the movies that show just how wrong a Christmas can go. Where is Santa? Why is Krampus here? Who is singing?!?! Get yourself tied to a chair and don't eat after midnight, these are all the ways Christmas can go up in flames. So, come on out to the coast, we'll have a few laughs....and a Christmas podcast!

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. We head to space and to the land of the dead, all while being pretty super about it and getting in bed by bedtime. Can Soul live up to the Pixar movies of old? There's only one way to find out!

Episode 181: The Gang Auditions for the League of Doom (Top 5 DC Villains Who Need a Movie)
From the web-slinging streets of Marvel New York City, through dimensional portals to the streets of DC's Gotham, Central City, and Metropolis, the gang is breaking bad and spending time with the worst of the DC rogues galleries. Once we're through, we'll know which Top 5 DC Villains Need Their Own Movie! 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). Did you ever think a movie about a living lump of clay could be interesting? What about an eco-drama about dangerous plants that isn't The Happening? 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!

The entire rogues' gallery is coming out to stop us, but listen, Bud, we've got radioactive blood and we're here to list! Outside of spider-talk, the gang dives into comics in general and why Mia can't choose only one option for a list placement. There are totally not fake commercials, weird games, terrible impressions, and even more goodies on Patreon, so if you think you can escape our spidey-senses, you've got another thing coming!
