Battleship Pretension is a podcast that represents the kind of conversations that film geeks have when they get together. There are strong opinions, in-jokes, obscure references, and wild tangents. And, since Tyler and David are two of the sharpest wits ever fused together, there are laughs aplenty.

Customer Reviews

Good show

Two guys who know a lot about movies and are unpretenious about their opinions discussing movies. One of the rare podcasts by amateurs discussing a subject where they have both depth and breadth of knowledge. They've grown a lot in front of the microphone. A very listenable show starting from episode 10 or so.

Indistinguishable among the crowd

While the hosts seem engaging enough, the conversations were mostly a lot of banter and asides. It was as if I was a fly on the wall of two guys chewing the rag in their living room. I was hoping for more quality film criticism instead of a kind of movie club talk. That's not really what I'm looking for.

I guess it would be OK if it was the only film podcast out there. Maybe it would help if the podcast was a little more structured; for instance, if the description included specific time points when the topic of conversation changed. It just took too long to find some substance.

But since I already regularly listen to three other film-related podcasts, and there are only so many hours in the day, Battleship Pretension doesn't make the cut.

A must for film fans!

I'm not a big podcast subscriber, yet I wait weekly for my dose of Battleship Pretension. Each episode is clever and informitive. The hosts are knowledgeable, and film fans will find much in common with these two. I couldn't give it a stronger recommendation! This is a must for all film fans.
