Welcome to Movie Podcast “It-Takes-Frikin-Forever-for-This-Damn-Show-to-Release-Sometimes” Weekly, Episode 127. I know everybody’s mad at Jason Pyles, but you really need to blame Jason Voorhees… In this show, your hosts Jason, Andy and Karl bring you some pretty humorous banter. We also have two Feature Reviews: Focus and The Lazarus Effect. In addition we bring you our usual Mini Reviews and a brief tribute to the Great Leonard Nimoy. Join us!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features three hosts — Jason, Andy and Karl — 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, 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.
