Welcome to the 403rd best movie podcast show on the Internet: Movie Podcast Weekly. This is Episode 203, where we bring you four Feature Reviews of Hell or High Water and Kubo and the Two Strings and Ben-Hur and War Dogs. In this show we also welcome back MPW listener and special guest Eric Herman (with a brief appearance by his daughters). We have a good time. 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!
