Customer Reviews

Love the irreverence

This podcast is funny as hell and thoroughly enjoyable. The two or three hosts banter at the beginning on a range of topics —other movies, pizza or drinking choices, etc., and they find endless ways to amuse and tease each other. Over time their singular personalities and preferences emerge throughout the podcasts. I appreciate their openness. I love how even when they disagree with each other, they just make each other laugh. Eventually they settle down to a movie review which can be just as funny. These guys love movies but have different expectations for what makes a good movie. They also know their directors. I sometimes question their choices of movies to review, since I’m used to reviews of more serious films. But I have been inspired to check out movies I would have dismissed, with happy results. In the end I appreciate the fact that Chris, Steven and Carson are pleasing mostly themselves and not trying to impress anyone. Now I have trouble listening to more serious reviews. These guys are much more fun. Keep it up guys!
One request — could you get around to making your old reviews more accessible to us non techies? I’d even pay for those.

Carson is literally the worst.

I’m still giving it five stars despite this guy Carson.

As a regular listener of move review podcasts, this is possibly my favorite of them all

Here's a rare movie review show where the hosts don't neatly fit into either of the regular categories of 1) pretentious snobby mainstream critic, 2) or ranting fanboy. That's much appreciated when the aforementioned types dominate the landscape of movie podcasts and the bandwagoning effect is so strong within each of the two groups (mainstream critic & fanboys).

I like that the hosts of this show just seem to genuinely love movies and subscribe to nobody's tastes but their own, not stick to the popularly mandated views on how you're supposed to feel about certain movies. Personally, I actually don't even quite share the same tastes in movies as any of these guys, but their opinions get my respect, even when I disagree with them, because they almost always have well thought-out reasoning for all their views, and never devolving into angry rants, like they do on too many other podcasts.

Of the three most regular hosts, Carson is my personal favorite, for not being afraid to go against the mainstream views, not afraid to love movies that others hate, not afraid to knock overrated movies down a few pegs. But they're all generally smart and amusing to listen to.

I can't say the show's not entirely without flaws. If I had to complain about anything, it's that each of the hosts have their own weird hangups about movies that can get just a little annoying sometimes, such as Chris's tendency to nitpick what often feels like the most insignificant points, or Carson's habit of seemingly never being satisfied with the quality of CGI in blockbusters.

Also, the spoiler-free segment of the show seems unnecessary, since their discussion always goes into such detail and depth anyway, even in the no-spoilers segment that, really, they might as well just make the whole show a spoiler show.

Highlights: In the middle of the Logan review, Carson weirdly branches into a tangent on his conspiracy theories regarding modern children vs children in the past, descending into one of the most bizarre discussions I've ever heard. What on Earth is he talking about? You have to hear it to know what I mean.

I've been a listener for over a year and will continue to listen, because this is a good show.
