Here is one of Jason’s all-time favorite episode of Movie Podcast Weekly… In Episode 251, we are joined by one of our foremost guest favorites, William Rowan Jr. (of The Sci-Fi Podcast). He helps us with our Feature Reviews of Atomic Blonde (2017) and A Ghost Story (2017). But the Main Event of this show is Jason’s Big (Belated) Birthday Bash: MPW’s Top 11-20 All-Time Favorite Movies! This is a must-listen episode because it is the first time you will hear the Top 10 All-Time Favorite Movies of both Geek Cast Ry and William Rowan Jr. (In fact, it’s an MPW Exclusive because William Rowan Jr. has never formally revealed his Top 10 anywhere else before!) Ryan also gives you a simple way to make his Christmas shopping list this year, and it pertains to “Die Hard” (1988). Join us!
And as noted in the preface… this episode contains major plot spoilers for the Coen Brothers’ 1996 feature film, “Fargo,” as well as for Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather: Part II” from 1974, and of course, for M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense” from 1999. And these spoilers occur during yet another debate about spoilers. So, if you don’t want to be spoiled for those films, you can skip over this section by looking at the time stamps in the show notes below.
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!
