Movie Podcast Weekly Ep. 029: Trance (2013) and Summer Blockbuster Preview 2013

Beware… your hosts of Movie Podcast Weekly are particularly feisty during Episode 029, especially Jason who rants throughout the show. We attack several movies and even individuals (we’re ashamed to report), including our co-host, Joshua Ligairi. But perhaps all the extra energy can be attributed to our Summer Blockbuster Preview! So, we review Danny Boyle’s “Trance” and then discuss what you can look forward to at the theater this summer. (If we offend anyone during this podcast, please send all angry e-mails to Andy.) Thanks for listening!
