Movie Podcast Weekend Ep. 185: Midnight Special (2016) and Hardcore Henry (2016) and Ryan Visits Utah

Episode 100

Ryan visits Utah in Episode 185 of Movie Podcast WEEKEND! Jason, Andy and Karl met co-host Ryan face to face, for the first time ever, as he visited Utah from April 8 through April 10, 2016. This episode is comprised of rough, live recordings that were captured on-the-go as your four hosts drove around and saw movies on April 8 and April 9. We managed to bring you two Feature Reviews of Midnight Special and Hardcore Henry. We also get Andy’s very sleepy and underwhelming reaction to “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” If you’d like to know what it would be like to hang out with us and chat about movies after leaving the theater, this is your episode!

Also recorded this weekend: Our MPW: Ghostbusters (1984) Commentary! Uh, not a must-listen by any means… but if you like this episode, it’s more of the same. Continue reading

Movie Podcast Weekly Ep. 170: The Big Short (2015) and the Top 10 Movies of 2015

Episode 170

Happy New Year’s Eve and happy 2016 this week! To celebrate, we have brought you a party in a podcast! What are the best movies of 2015? Your friends here at Movie Podcast Weekly (and the MPW listenership) are here to tell you. We bring you four Top 10 best lists from the hosts and a collective Top 10 list from our listenership. We had the potential of bringing you 50 strong recommendations, but we’ve had some overlap, naturally, so you get 27 various picks among these Top 10 lists! Formerly known as our “The Best Movies of [Year]” list, this is MPW’s official Top 10 Movies of 2015 show. In Episode 170, we also bring you a Feature Review of The Big Short, with special guest Rob Booker (of The Traders Podcast). Join us, and feel free to post your end-of-the-year movie lists in the comments for this episode. Thanks for a great year!
