Happy Father’s Day, and welcome to Episode 090 of Movie Podcast Weekly. We bring you Feature Reviews of “22 Jump Street,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Maleficent.” And for this show, we actually have some pre-recorded hosting going on: Josh recorded his thoughts from Boston, so this show still features audio clips from Josh, even though he couldn’t make it live. And since it was Father’s Day when we recorded this, Andy’s daughter, Evan, gives us a couple of reviews, as well! If you dig our show, please subscribe for free in iTunes. Thanks for listening.
Movie Podcast Weekly typically 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.
— Pre-recorded Josh in Boston
— Josh’s tribute to the late Casey Kasem
— MPW receives multiple nominations for the First Annual Podbody Film & TV Podcasting Awards
