In this wacky installment of Movie Podcast Weekly, Andy calls in to the show from (almost literally) the top of the world — Prudhoe Bay, Alaska! Most of the photos in Episode 194’s show notes here pertain to Andy’s travels. We bring you four Feature Reviews of Now You See Me 2 and Warcraft and The Conjuring 2 and Love & Friendship. We also bring you a lengthy debate about the legality and necessity of the movie editing service VidAngel.
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. New episodes release every single week!
