For Episode 053 of Movie Podcast Weekly, we fully intended to bring you three feature reviews, but you only get about two and a half reviews… That’s right — as a Movie Podcast Weekly first — one of your hosts WALKED OUT on one of these movies, so we couldn’t rightfully give you a few review with ratings… The three films under consideration this week are: Rush, And While We Were Here and Don Jon. We also get into a discussion about the depictions of marriage in movies… Don’t miss it!
Movie Podcast Weekly features four hosts (and frequent guests), who give you their verdict on at least one new movie release that’s currently in theaters; mini reviews of what they’ve been watching lately; and specialty recommendation segments. New episodes release every single Monday.
