Most of the hosts of Movie Podcast Weekly believe that Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” (2003) is a masterpiece. Join us here on Episode 195, we Feature Review its sequel, Finding Dory to see if it’s a worthy follow-up. We also review Central Intelligence. Also in this episode, we lament the untimely death of Anton Yelchin, and we also discuss the undeniable decline in quality of animated feature films — particularly many of Pixar’s recent releases. Oh, and we also fight about the character of Harry Potter and whether he is, as Jason calls him, a wuss and a disappointment. 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. New episodes release every single week!
