Welcome to The Ryan and Jason Show — a special two-hander episode — where there’s no Karl or Andy in sight. (But then, there’s never really Karl or Andy insight… Har har. Get it?) This is Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 193. In this podcast, you’ll hear Feature Reviews for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping and The Finest Hours.
Also in this episode, Geek Cast Ry and Jay talk about their concerns for the narrative of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” according to some ominous rumors. GCR also discusses his predictions about the quality of “Warcraft” and whether it will unseat “Silent Hill” (2006) as the best video game-to-film adaptation. They also discuss a tremendous new must-listen podcast called LORE. Thanks for joining us (since Karl and Andy couldn’t be bothered to do so).
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. New episodes release every single week!
