Fun Film Podcast
The hosts of this movie podcast are really developing an engaging rapport making their weekly deconstruction of a film a blast to listen to. It also does a good job of being accessible to a less film-saavy audience by not being overly technical but trying to educate listeners a bit on the technical jargon.
The Good, The Bad and the Weird
This is a great podcast for the casual film watcher. Adam is knowledgable about film and gives us some of the more "behind the scenes" info, but in non-technical language. Raz is the populist throwing out his strong opinions off the cuff, but he has a good pulse as to the popular perception of a film. Sometimes his opinions are pretty strange (like Scott Pilgrim being a movie that shouldn't have been made, whatever), but it's all done in good fun. They are clearly good friends who are free to disagree and they don't get bogged down in side discussions, which altogether makes for an interesting listen.
Keep it up, guys! And you should try to get a female guest to express a different point of view every once in a while.
