Welcome to Episode 162 of Movie Podcast Weekly, the new-release movie show featuring a film critic, an actor, a geek and a guy named Andy. In this week’s show, we bring you four Feature Reviews of Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse and Bone Tomahawk and Our Brand Is Crisis and Truth.
This week Karl is broadcasting from Jason’s house. Also in this episode, we bring you a pretty epic rant about Netflix. And starting next week, your MPW crew and Jedi Master Steve Hernandez will be covering one “Star Wars” movie each week — in-depth — leading up to our review of “Star Wars – Episode VII: The Force Awakens.” So, next week, we’ll be reviewing “Star Wars – Episode I: The Phantom Menace” (1999), and “Spectre,” of course. Join us!
This episode is dedicated to La’Darious Wylie.
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.
