Welcome to Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 070! For this show, we bring you this year’s Sundance 2014 Report, starring Joshua Ligairi and special guest WILLIAM ROWAN JR., filmmaker and friend. And of the Sundance crop of films, we go a little more in-depth in our discussions of “Mitt” (which is now streaming on Netflix) and “Life Itself.” We also bring you a Feature Review of “I, Frankenstein,” and we revisit our debate about “The Act of Killing.” 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.
