Oh boy! We’re back again already with Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 175! In this episode, your four favorite hosts bring you Feature Reviews of Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) and Best Picture nominee Brooklyn (2015). We also bring you Mini Reviews and at least 40 minutes of mostly unlistenable and irrelevant, witless banter, but we hope you enjoy it, anyway. It’s about as ridiculous as any other episode, so you might 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.
