Episode 152

After 151 episodes, it has happened… Movie Podcast Weekly has been usurped, and for Episode 152, your favorite movie podcast has been taken over by a DJ, a Holy Man, a Geek and a Guy Named Nic! That’s right! The crew from the Geek Cast Live Podcast is hosting MPW this week — and to return the disservice with a little turnabout and fair play — your usual MPW hosts (minus Ryan) have gone and taken over the Geek Cast Live Podcast! For those children of the ’80s, this is very much a Coy and Vance type of situation…

In this episode of Movie Podcast Weekly, the Geek Cast brings you Feature Reviews of American Ultra and Hitman: Agent 47. They also bring you a CTS-style concept discussion where they consider the conundrum of the box office draw of original content versus already established intellectual properties adapted to film. The Geeks have a fascinating discussion about what this dichotomy is doing to the movie industry. Join us! Continue reading
