Which is more likely? Jason can rap, or you will get stuck at the bottom of the ocean in a shark cage? We more or less consider the possibilities of both scenarios during Episode 245 of Movie Podcast Weekly. During this show, we are joined by two special guests: namely, one Chase Harrison who is the mastermind of the insightful Reel to Reel movie blog, and later we’re also joined by the Wild Man Willis Wheeler of the Terror Troop horror podcast, among others. In Episode 245, we bring you several Feature Reviews of All Eyez on Me (2017) and 47 Meters Down (2017) and Cars 3 (2017) and The Book of Henry (2017) and our third and final installment of The Bottom 5 Worst Movie Titles Ever! Join us! It’s nearly worth it!
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!
