Happy birthday to Ryan this week! He’s 14 and has facial hair. It’s time for Movie Podcast Weekly, the most offensive family-friendly podcast — ever! This is Episode 154. This is the episode where Andy says a crescent wrench can be considered pornography…
In this show, your four hosts bring you our MPW Fall / Winter Preview of all the upcoming new releases for the remainder of this year. We also reveal MPW’s plan for ramping up to our coverage of “Star Wars Ep. VII: The Force Awakens.”
This episode of Movie Podcast Weekly brings you three Feature Reviews of The Transporter Refueled, which is a PG-13 action movie that inspired Andy to write and read a heartfelt and passionate open letter that he penned for the movie industry and parents. This movie also inspired Jason to do some soul-searching about the direction his life has taken…
After denying Andy the opportunity to see the film — but going to see it himself — Karl brings us a Feature Review of A Walk in the Woods. And even though Jason and most listeners probably had no interest in the new, live-action Cinderella, Jason brings a surprising Feature Review of that film, as well. 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.
