Hi, and welcome to Movie Podcast Weekly. This is Episode 160. In this show we bring you Feature Reviews of Bridge of Spies and Crimson Peak and Goosebumps. In this show, we also invite you to participate in our contest where you could win a Roger Ebert Movie Year Book 2002 or a VHS version of “The Karate Kid.” Listen to find out how to participate!
MPW Episode 160 features all your usual hosts, except Andy, who hurt his back paying bills. We bring you discussion of some of the latest movie trailers, including the new trailer for “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens”; David O. Russell’s “Joy”; a hilariously pretentious trailer for what appears to be a hilariously pretentious film, “By the Sea”; and a promising-looking trailer for the live-action version of “The Jungle Book.” 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.
— No Andy this week: hurt his back paying bills
— The new Star Wars – Episode VII: The Force Awakens trailer (and the morons it has provoked)
— The trailer for JOY
— The most pretentious trailer ever made: By the Sea
— The trailer for The Jungle Book
— Contest: Send us your requests and recommendations for movies that MPW should still see and review for our Top 10 lists of 2015. You could win a Roger Ebert Movie Year Book 2002 or “The Karate Kid” (1984) on VHS.
