In Episode 068 of Movie Podcast Weekly, your All-American heroes welcome GEEK CAST RY to the show for a hulking 43-minute review of Peter Berg’s Lone Survivor. Next, Josh is your “Lone Reviewer” in his praise of the latest Spike Jonze’s meta-masterpiece about love, loss, and loneliness in the near future, Her. And finally, this fearsome five-some showdown, in a Mexican stand-off of sorts, with more than 10 lists and 100 movie recommendations from the 1990s. Who will come out victorious?
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.
