The Most Offensive Family-Friendly Podcast braves another discussion about race, immigration and other hot-button topics in Episode 226 of Movie Podcast Weekly. We know, we know… but we got word that some people found some of the remarks made during Episode 223 offensive, so we wanted to address it as our resident night manager of 7-Eleven oversaw the proceedings. We hope all will listen (especially those who found Ep. 223 offensive).

We also bring you the regular business of Feature Reviews. This week we review Lion (2017) and Rings (2017). Additionally, you’ll hear our thoughts on the biggest football game of the year and we define the meaning of the phrase “Revenge Netflix.” Join us, unless you’re … chicken. Continue reading

Movie Podcast Weekly BONUS: Reviewing 2,500 Movies in 7 Years for a DVD Infatuation

BONUS Episode

But just to provide some context, as I write these show notes, there are presently more than 1 billion, 39 million live websites on the Internet. So, I would speculate that at least 39 million of those are movie review blogs. I’m kidding, of course.

The actual figure is probably much higher…

Despite the incalculable number of movie sites, there is one man whose movie-reviewing efforts truly stand out: This BONUS episode of Movie Podcast Weekly consists of an interview with the most prolific film reviewer that I know personally, Mr. Dave Becker (aka “Dr. Shock”) of Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia. I found Dave and his remarkable blog at DVD Infatuation.com on Twitter in 2010, the year he endeavored to review one film a day — every single day — until he reached his goal of watching and reviewing 2,500 movies.
