It’s time, once again, for Movie Podcast Weekly. This is Episode 147. Jason, Andy and Ryan are joined by two of the hosts of the Geek Cast Live Podcast: Geek Cast Bass and Geek Cast Nic! Our cohorts are here to help us bring you an in-depth, must-listen Feature Review of Ant-Man, as well as Feature Reviews of Trainwreck and Mr. Holmes. Jay also brings you a brief, teaser review of The Gallows, which is a film that has spawned a major episode over at Horror Movie Podcast this week. Join us!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Geek Cast Ry — 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 Wednesday.
