Featured: 5 Movie Podcasts You Should Listen To
Since we’re a film blog that has our own movie podcast, it makes sense that we’ll listen to other podcasts that are there to enjoy as well. And we do. We love film and we love discussing and talking about them as well. Recording our podcast is one of my favorite moments of the whole week and I love our podcast, but there are plenty of other film podcasts that are also really good that you should check out.
Now, I could sit here and write a blog post that would be 8,000 pages long on movie podcasts and the good one’s that are out there. But it wouldn’t be conducive to do that so I’m only going to talk about five today. But you can expect more posts like this in the future where we’ll discuss more podcasts that you need to check out since there’s so many good ones.
There is no particular order for these but just five podcasts that I would recommend that you check out. So that being said, let’s get into it.
GeekScholars is hosted by Fox, Chris, Jill and Lauren and they live up to their name in so many ways. The conversations they have sometimes will just blow your mind with the amount of information they have. They geek out in great ways but it’s incredibly entertaining and it’s a podcast you need to listen to. One thing that makes their podcast so great is the fact that they are a “movie news” podcast. While they do review films, the main thing they do is news which is incredibly helpful given the amount of info they have on hand. They do a great job of making it fun and creative and sometimes I can’t keep up. Their dynamics is also unique because they have two female voices that most movie podcasts lack in, including ours. Now don’t get me wrong, there are podcasts that have female voices, but there’s not a ton. Jill and Lauren add a lot to this show and are just as fun to listen to as the boys are.
We’ve also had the joy of having Fox on our show a couple of weeks ago where we reviewed Riddick on our podcast and he was fantastic.
The MGCTv podcast is an assortment of London based voices bringing you funny conversations of whatever is topical in the world of entertainment. They are occasionally joined by their allies in the USA and whoever makes it on to their shows is always great. What I love about the MGCTv podcast is that they have weekly reviews, like us, but they are short and sweet. If you’re looking for a great podcast that is short and will review the films you want to see, this is the podcast for you. The length of their show doesn’t take away from this podcast at all. If anything, it enhances it. They also have a somewhat weekly or bi-weekly box office show that is really great as well.
These guys are hilarious. Their clever and the reviews are always spot on. This is a podcast that is funny, incredibly entertaining and one worth downloading. Plus, they have sexy English accents that we lack on so many levels. #SadFace
Russell Hainline, Leighton Gordon, and Shira Selkovits host The Long and Late Movie Show who usually host some sort of comedian guest as they review the latest films and more. I love the way these guys banter back and fort. It’s funny and very entertaining. These are guys that know film though and will discuss it in a really engaging way.
Did I mention they know film? They see a lot of it too. They review a ton of films every week and it’s a great podcast to get the latest on everything out there right now. They have a lot of creative and unique segments too that are really fun and it’s one I’d recommend.
The HH&P Movie Podcast is really fun and unique podcast that is a little different than most other podcasts. The show is done by two long time friends, Shawn and Mike, who have divided their show into two separate segments: Nostalgic and Current. For the nostalgic part of the show, they review a movie they loved as a kid and review it from that kid perspective they remember from the first time they watched it. They then re-watch the movie and review it again and discuss the differences they found in the re-watch. It works really great. Then they also review current movies and films which is also really fun and entertaining to listen to.
The show is really great and one I’d recommend. It’s is usually around and hour, which is a great length for the podcast. If you love movies from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s then this is the perfect film podcast for you.
Okay, so Filmspotting is a little bigger than all these other podcasts listed here but I have to mention them. Many people consider Filmspotting to be the best movie podcast out there, and they are really great, but it depends on what you’re looking for. These guys won’t necessarily make you laugh a lot or be entertaining in the traditional way but these guys are in another league. They are incredibly intelligent and discuss movies in a way that blows my mind. I’ll never be able to articulate the way these guys do. They aren’t arrogant or anything like that, they simply know film and discuss film in a unique and intelligent way. It’s entertaining and extremely valauble in it’s own right and it’s a highly respected podcast in the film industry. I’d highly recommend this movie podcast.
Filmspotting is hosted by Adam Kempenaar and Josh Larson who are amazing film critics and have a vast knowledge of film. The best part for me is the way Adam and Josh are able to banter back and forth and create an extremely engaging conversation while it only being two people. Good stuff.
I hope you enjoy this list and again, I’d recommend all of these movie podcasts for sure. And as I said earlier, there are more that I will have to talk about in the future. If you have a film podcast, send it to me as I’d love to check them all out.
