Is it possible to spoil a film from 1972? If so, this episode contains a major plot spoiler for “The Godfather.” Listeners (especially Dino), weigh in on this debate, and break it on down for us. Welcome to Episode 209 of Movie Podcast Weekly, where we bring you a Feature Review of Deepwater Horizon. We also bring you our thoughts on Designated Survivor, as well as Ryan’s review of HBO’s Westworld and tales of his muskie fishing trip in Northwoods Wisconsin. Weird, right? Join us!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Ryan — 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!
