This week Darren Aronofsky’s divisive film, Mother! (2017), causes more of its characteristic controversy on Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 257. Jason and Andy (who actually saw the film) fight with Karl and Ryan who did not. Draw your conclusions; make your own decision. We also bring you a rather short and underwhelming Feature Review of American Assassin (2017). We also fight about “La La Land” and a bunch of other things that I don’t care to write about here.
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!
