This is Episode 099 of Movie Podcast Weekly, where we bring you reviews of at least one new movie in theaters. But for this epic show, we bring you six Feature Reviews for “The Expendables 3,” “Let’s Be Cops,” “The Giver,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Locke” and “Saints and Soldiers: The Void.” We also bring you two special guests: Willis Wheeler and William Rowan Jr. Episode 099 also features more reflection about the late, great Robin Williams and some discussion about theater etiquette. Oh, and we have a great listener voicemail from our friend Jennifer, who’s a black belt. Don’t miss it!
