Welcome to this week’s pared down version of Movie Podcast Weekly. This is Episode 155. In this show, Jason and Karl hold down the fort, as Andy and Ryan deal with The Plague or something akin to it. This week we bring you Feature Reviews of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit and Child 44 and Cop Car. We’d love for you to join us, even if we are podcasting with a skeleton crew this week. Thanks for listening.
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.
