Once again, Movie Podcast Weekly delivers more than 2 hours of movie-related content. In this episode, we review “Kick-Ass 2” and “Aftershock” (2013). Our special guest is WILLIS WHEELER of the Terror Troop horror movie podcast and The Donut Show! You won’t want to miss Willis’s rant about those who complain that comic book-inspired movies are “too comic booky.” And we also debate a little about superhero movies that are set more in reality versus the fantastical movies. We also spell out everything that’s wrong with reality television. And Episode 047 features another heated battle about Jim Carrey’s change of heart regarding “Kick-Ass 2.” Don’t miss it!
