Welcome to Movie Podcast Weekly. This is Episode 153. Your four usual hosts and special guest William Rowan Jr. (of The Sci-Fi Podcast) are back this week to bring you four Feature Reviews of No Escape and Z for Zachariah and Sinister 2 and Meru.
In this episode, we also bring you a 2015 SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER RECAP and some movie-related highlights from the Guinness World Records 2015 edition. We also engage in a rousing (albeit speculative) “Man on Wire” versus “The Walk” trailer debate. Don’t miss this one!
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.
