Movie Podcasts

May 20, 2009

I am a huge movie buff.  Well, more as in follows industry news, and watches a lot of movies. When it comes to the classics, I fall short…very short.  So, I rely on movie podcasts full of people who know a lot more about movies then I do. This way I can go back and talk to my co-workers as if I’m some movie god. Listed below are some I’ve started listening too, or have been for a while. Either way, they are all greatly recommended. By the way, al these podcasts can be found on iTunes.

Scene Unseen

First up, is Scene Unseen.  This podcast consists of one of two having seen the movie, and the other hasn’t. Which leads to some often funny discussion about the movie. My first one was the X-Men Origin: Wolverine Review. That one alone won me over.

The /Filmcast

The /Filmcast is a podcast from the editors of the site, who do the typical movie podcast thing, news, discussion, etc, then leading to a review to a movie. Being a movie geek I can’t get enough movie discussion. I usually have things pointed out to me that I either missed originally  or just never would have thought of, either way it’s a great podcast with some great people. I really do recommend also listening to the After Dark series. I finally got around to taking the plunge and listening to one of those as well, and it’s hilarious. Having listened to one at the recently, I got the impression its more of a reader heavy segment. A reader asks a question after confessing some embarrassing or pretty funny story and asks the editors and guests to relate if it all possible. This leads to even more amusing stories.

Battleship Pretension

Another more unique podcast, that doesn’t talk much about movie news, or reviews. Focuses more on film discussion such as, when great directors make bad movies. The people are very witty, and funny. Highly recommend it.

IGN’s Keepin It Reel

My one sellout recommendation cause I just love all the IGN podcasts…except for the music and the retro ones…but thats just because I’m not interested in those things.  Either way, it’s a great podcast with insightful discussion. Other then straight forward. Also, it’s amusing to see the editors try and make box office predictions and to later discuss how close/distant they were in the following week.

Hope everyone gets as much enjoyment as I do!
