In Episode 056 of Movie Podcast Weekly, Jason, Josh and Karl take bets on whether or not Andy will actually show up before giving you 6 (count ’em, 6!) feature reviews including
the Bruce Willis sci-fi action / comedy “The Fifth Element” the Benedict Cumberbatch Wikileaks / Julian Asange bio-pic “The Fifth Estate,” followed by another film based on a true story, this one about the DC sniper, “Blue Caprice,” the Sylvester Stallone / Arnold Arnold Schwarzenegger double-team “Escape Plan,” both Kimberly Pierce’s brand new “Carrie” remake, as well as the 1976 De Palma adaptation of Stephen King’s classic work and, finally, the long-awaited indie slasher “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.”
When Andy eventually drags himself into the show, Movie Podcast Weekly features four hosts (and frequent guests), who give you their verdict on at least one new movie release that’s currently in theaters, mini-reviews of what they’ve been watching lately, and specialty recommendation segments. New episodes release every single Monday.
