John finally comes up with a title for Max to watch for losing the Summer Movie Contest last year and they make their selections. 

Note: We both agreed that Avengers: Infinity War would make the contest uninteresting so it was removed from the contest. Also there might be some sections that our voices overlap. I tried fixing it best I could. Next show will be better (Max).
