Movie Podcast Weekly Ep. 251: Atomic Blonde (2017) and A Ghost Story (2017) and Jason’s Birthday Bash: MPW’s Top 11-20 Favorite Movies

Episode 251 - A Ghost Story

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. Continue reading

Episode 154

Happy birthday to Ryan this week! He’s 14 and has facial hair. It’s time for Movie Podcast Weekly, the most offensive family-friendly podcast — ever! This is Episode 154. This is the episode where Andy says a crescent wrench can be considered pornography…

In this show, your four hosts bring you our MPW Fall / Winter Preview of all the upcoming new releases for the remainder of this year. We also reveal MPW’s plan for ramping up to our coverage of “Star Wars Ep. VII: The Force Awakens.”

This episode of Movie Podcast Weekly brings you three Feature Reviews of The Transporter Refueled, which is a PG-13 action movie that inspired Andy to write and read a heartfelt and passionate open letter that he penned for the movie industry and parents. This movie also inspired Jason to do some soul-searching about the direction his life has taken…

After denying Andy the opportunity to see the film — but going to see it himself — Karl brings us a Feature Review of A Walk in the Woods. And even though Jason and most listeners probably had no interest in the new, live-action Cinderella, Jason brings a surprising Feature Review of that film, as well. Join us! Continue reading
