Welcome to Episode 078 of Movie Podcast Weekly. In this show, you’ll hear Jason, Andy and Karl talk about their war stories from conflicts with other theater-goers, including an experience that Jason had this past weekend at his screening of “Divergent.” In addition to “Divergent,” you’ll also hear reviews of “Muppets Most Wanted” and “The Bag Man.” We also talk about more controversy surrounding “Noah.” Sadly, Josh wasn’t able to join us for this episode, but you can catch up with Joshua on Twitter.
Movie Podcast Weekly typically 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.
