This episode of Movie Podcast Weekly is dedicated to MPW guest and friend, Anthony Bruno.
In Episode 102, Jason, Karl and Andy take some time to reflect on the sad loss of Anthony Bruno. (Read Jason’s tribute to Bruno here.) We also bring you three Feature Reviews of If I Stay and 50 to 1 and Life of Crime. And, of course, we bring you our famous Mini Reviews, and Andy introduces his new specialty segment! Thanks for listening.
Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Josh — along with frequent guests. We give you our verdicts on at least one new movie release from the current year that’s currently playing in theaters or on VOD, as well as several mini reviews of whatever we’ve been watching lately. And we usually provide specialized genre recommendations. New episodes release every single Tuesday. Join us!
