Hi, and welcome to Episode 132 of Movie Podcast Weekly. In this show, your usual hosts welcome special guest Willis Wheeler to help them review Furious 7. We also bring you Feature Reviews of Get Hard and Wild Card. Andy also tells us the harrowing tale of how he nearly got in a physical altercation after his screening! Don’t miss it!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features three hosts — Jason, Andy and Karl — 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, 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.
