Ryan visits Utah in Episode 185 of Movie Podcast WEEKEND! Jason, Andy and Karl met co-host Ryan face to face, for the first time ever, as he visited Utah from April 8 through April 10, 2016. This episode is comprised of rough, live recordings that were captured on-the-go as your four hosts drove around and saw movies on April 8 and April 9. We managed to bring you two Feature Reviews of Midnight Special and Hardcore Henry. We also get Andy’s very sleepy and underwhelming reaction to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” If you’d like to know what it would be like to hang out with us and chat about movies after leaving the theater, this is your episode!
Also recorded this weekend: Our MPW: Ghostbusters (1984) Commentary! Uh, not a must-listen by any means… but if you like this episode, it’s more of the same.
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Geek Cast Ry — along with frequent guests. We give you our verdicts on at least one new movie release from the current year that’s currently playing in theaters, as well as several mini reviews of whatever we’ve been watching lately. New episodes release every single week!
