Happy birthday to Jason! On July 2, 2015, Jason turns 39! This show — Episode 144 — is the third annual “Jason’s Big Birthday Bash” for Movie Podcast Weekly. In this epic show, your four hosts bring you a Feature Review of “Dope” (2015) and then lists of 20 Movie Masterpieces! Each host will choose five Masterpieces each (and we have no repeats). Also in this show, Andy learns several new vocabulary definitions, and he also discovers that “Bronies” are a real phenomenon… We also get a great voicemail from Dino, who sends Jay a wonderfully generous birthday gift. Don’t miss this show! It’s Jason’s actual birthday party, and you’re all invited!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Geek Cast Ry — 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 Wednesday.
