Really fun - and you learn stuff too!

There's another noir podcast out there called "Out of the Past." I've enjoyed it for years, though it's very serious, very erudite, very academic to the point that sometimes they just take all the fun out of the movies. THIS podcast, on the other hand, suffers from none of those things - a group of ladies dissect great film noir movies in the way you or I would if we got together with our friends to talk movies. You can't help but laugh as they're really funny and really enjoying themselves, and they happen to know a lot about the movies too. Probably my favorite podcast at the moment. I love film noir and THIS is how I think it should be discussed. Yes, on occassion they get too wrapped up in detailing the plot (see Angel, Fallen). Besides that, this is a really fun half hour that I recommend highly, in particular to anyone interested in learning about the genre. Tally ho, ladies!

You Women Rock!

Noir is my favorite movie genre and I've been looking for a good podcast about it for a while and glad this one is always consistently good! Great for noir experts and beginners. Keep it up!

"Reel Ignorance: Noir"

Not sure why this podcast is called "Reel EDUCATION: Noir," because the listener learns nothing. The hosts, who seemed to have just arrived on Planet Earth, have no background in or knowledge about film noir (except one did take a Hitchcock class in college). They also know nothing about noir movie actors. ("Oh Mitchum? Mitchum sounds like a fragrance.") One host thought "Gilda," which she confused as "Glenda," starred Marlene Dietrich. It would be a "Reel EDUCATION" for the LISTENERS if the hosts did some prep work to share interesting facts and had intelligent perspectives about the aspects of each film noir discussed. Instead, their script is "let's be spontaneous" and ignorantly run our mouths for 20+ minutes about what was so blatantly obvious about each movie while rehashing the plot and dialogue, squealing about how the movie was "sooooo f***ing great," and throwing in a couple facts from the film's Wikipedia page. Since the hosts are women, why not discuss the interesting niche of women in film noir? As a movie buff and a woman, I find the hosts ill-informed embarrassments. Seriously, what possesses people to waste time and effort podcasting such boring, cringeworthy drivel? They put the "NO!" in noir.
