This episode is dedicated to our friend Anthony Bruno.
Episode 106 is 3 hours and 32 minutes of good times. (But in case we get too long-winded on any portion — such as our specialty segments — we’ve included the time stamps for your convenience.) Jason, Andy and Josh are joined by special guest film critic Cody Clark to help us review Gone Girl (with a spoiler section after the end credits) and Cold in July and A Fantastic Fear of Everything and The Two Faces of January.
Is there a 2014 movie that you’ve been wondering about that we haven’t covered yet? Let us know in the comments which 2014 movies you’d still like to hear us review before the end of the year. Thanks for listening!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Josh — 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 or on VOD, as well as several mini reviews of whatever we’ve been watching lately. And we usually provide specialized genre recommendations. New episodes release every single Tuesday. Join us!
