Most of the photos in Episode 194’s show notes here pertain to Andy’s travels. We bring you four Feature Reviews of Now You See Me 2 and Warcraft and The Conjuring 2 and Love & Friendship. We also bring you a lengthy debate about the legality and necessity of the movie editing service VidAngel.

It’s difficult to even find estimates of how many movie review blogs and websites exist on the Internet. Perhaps no one has dared to attempt a head-count. But just to provide some context, as I write these show notes, there are presently more than 1 billion, 39 million live websites on the Internet. So, I would speculate that at least 39 million of those are movie review blogs. I’m kidding, of course.
The actual figure is probably much higher…
Despite the incalculable number of movie sites, there is one man whose movie-reviewing efforts truly stand out: This BONUS episode of Movie Podcast Weekly consists of an interview with the most prolific film reviewer that I know personally, Mr. Dave Becker (aka “Dr. Shock”) of Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia.

Welcome to The Ryan and Jason Show — a special two-hander episode — where there’s no Karl or Andy in sight. (But then, there’s never really Karl or Andy insight… Har har. Get it?) This is Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 193. In this podcast, you’ll hear Feature Reviews for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and The Finest Hours.
Also in this episode, Geek Cast Ry and Jay talk about their concerns for the narrative of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” according to some ominous rumors. GCR also discusses his predictions about the quality of “Warcraft” and whether it will unseat “Silent Hill” (2006) as the best video game-to-film adaptation. They also discuss a tremendous new must-listen podcast called LORE. Thanks for joining us (since Karl and Andy couldn’t be bothered to do so). Continue reading →
Get ready for some controversy on Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 192. During this show, your favorite movie podcast hosts bring you Feature Reviews of X-Men: Apocalypse and The Ones Below. Please be sure to vote on our poll below. Thank you!
Don’t be fooled… Episode 191 of Movie Podcast Weekly is actually better than it seems. At first blush, when you glance over our Feature Reviews in the title, this episode seems like it will suck a la MPW Ep. 176, when we really covered nothing of interest… In this show, even though we bring you Feature Reviews of The Nice Guys and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and The Angry Birds Movie, we also talk about:
— our feelings regarding the opening credits in movies
— our definitive declaration of the hottest Disney princess
— Interactive Cinema: Choose Your Own Adventure Movies and Other Gimmicks
— off-handed mentions (but no further description) of potentially interesting films, such as “Silver Streak” and “The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea”Continue reading →
