Welcome to a 3-hour and 5-minute Episode 108 of Movie Podcast Weekly! Your hosts Jason, Josh, and Andy are joined by special guest William Rowan Jr. to help bring you Feature Reviews of Fury and Men, Women & Children and The Book of Life and Planes: Fire and Rescue. We also bring you a pretty epically long Mini Review section, and an all-around lengthier episode.
By the way, stick around after the credits, because we’ve tacked on an 11-minute bonus conversation that was too bulky to preserve the flow of the episode, but fun enough for the outtakes treatment. Enjoy!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features three hosts—Jason, Josh, and Andy—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!
