Post by: secondcitywolverine on January 23, 2008, 06:56:16 PM
So not only do I love Filmspotting, but I'm starting to love the message board peeps. I'm addicted to podcasts and was wondering what other podcasts people here listen to. Currenlty my rotation includes:

DL.TV - Video podcast on technology
Never Not Funny - Audio podcast starring Chicago-native, stand-up comedian Jimmy Pardo
Onion New Network - Video podcast of the satire gods
reason.tv - Video podcast hosted by Drew Carey much like Penn and Teller BS
this WEEK in TECH - Audio podcast also about technology (am I a nerd?)
Uncle Jay Explains the News - Funny, smartass video podcast

What else do you all suggest/listen to?

Book Panel with Simon Mayo - Simon and 2-3 readers review a couple of newly published books each week, and often have the authors in on the discussion

Daily Mayo - Simon Mayo again (he's a fantastic host/interviewer) - interviews with authors to politicians to film stars

KCRW's The Treatment - Elvis Mitchell is one of the best interviewers I've ever heard

Mark Kermode film reviews (of course!)

NPR: Movies

NPR: Fresh Air

This American Life

The Observer Film Weekly - UK podcast, reviews current releases and often has interviews with actors/directors

The Film Programme - another UK film podcast

Slate's Spoiler Specials - Slate's film critic Dana Stevens talks over a film with a guest

Blasphemy!

Actually I listen to a number of other podcasts including:

The Treatment
The Hollywood Saloon - Pretty in depth but focuses mainly on American films.
Hardcore History
This American Life
Distorted View - Tasteless comedy but I love it.  I've kind of stopped listening though because it gets old after awhile.
Cinemaslave - Listen to this on occasion but the host is kind of annoying.

I don't know why I never listened to This American Life, but I just downloaded the latest episode.

The Treatment looks interesting as well.

The Totally Rad Show was one I was nervous about. Seemed like a bunch of college kids just having fun and no real show. Wait...that sounds perfect! Trying that one out too.

There is a definite structure and they (mostly) know what they are talking about. It's really fun.

WHOA! How do you have enough time to listen to all of these? Thanks for the list, I'm going to check these out.

For the most part I don't, or just barely scrape by.

On my main desktop computer, I have something like 250 unlistened to podcasts (most of them entire semesters of audio from Princeton/Harvard/Berkeley courses). On my work laptop, I have about 60 unlistened to podcasts (most of them tech/project management related), and on my personal laptop I have about 125 unlistened to podcasts (however, most of them are video podcasts like Mahalo Daily, Rocketboom, and Triggerstreet TV).

I do a lot of travel for my job and do a lot of listening on airplanes. I also do a lot of tech gruntwork that doesn't require what we call "thought" (for example, today all I'm doing is reformatting huge chunks of data for this database I designed, so all I'm doing is running Excel spreadsheets through a reformatting script). This is perfect for audiobooks and podcasts. Last summer when I was doing a lot of travel, I was averaging 4 to 5 hours of audiobooks/podcasts a day plus one DVD/movie-in-a-theater each evening, five days a week. The weekends were totally devoted to the wife, so no iPods or movies were allowed.

Nominally,it is a sex podcast, but more often than not it is a podcast about relationships. Plus he says some really funny things about people who overuse trendy buzz words like "Polyamory."

Yeah, he gets great people in. It is annoying that he announces the call letters - I don't blame him for that though; I'm sure he has to do it. Interesting that you don't like his interview style; I like it because he seems to me so genuinely interested in the person across from him - the questions and flow of conversation seem natural, not at all stagey. I like that.

Nominally,it is a sex podcast, but more often than not it is a podcast about relationships. Plus he says some really funny things about people who overuse trendy buzz words like "Polyamory."

what's that supposed to mean?

I was referring to a recent Savage Love podcast where someone called in and with a question where she used the word "Polyamory" about every other word. Her question went something like, "I'm in a polyamory relationship and I'm new to polyamory, but I've always been polyamory and my non-polyamory friends don't get my polyamory and I don't know how to make my non-polyamory friends deal with my polyamoryousness and they should just deal because I'm polyamory and I'm in a polyamory relationship and that is the way it is going to be but what should I do becuase this couple I'm in a polyamory relationship has only been polyamory for a short time and they're weirding me out a little."

And Dan Savage responded with some quip about "polyamory tourettes" and went on about how everyone who discovers something new about him/herself for the first time can't help saying what that is every other sentence. And then I believe he said something about "polyamory" being the new black. I can't remember it exactly, but I laughed a lot when I heard it.

I'm summarizing what was said on the podcast, but basically Dan Savage turned the word "polyamory" into a punch line for me.

No offense was intended towards you or your podcast. I just really like Dan Savage.

I believe this is part of the FCC regulation to make a station announcement every few minutes so people will know what station they are on.  Most radio shows do this, especially the long form shows.

What a great topic! I teach on-line and stay home with the kids, so I'm home more often than not and always looking for something interesting to listen to.

I recently went on a deleting spree to free up hard drive space and accidentally deleted my Itunes folder, so I'm doing this off of memory.

This American Life
Tony Compolo Podcast (Politically liberal Christianity; a lot of its preaching to the converted for me- literally- but its still nice to hear someone articulate these positions)
Slate Political Gabfest (a bit glib at times, but entertaining and fairly informative)
Grammar Girl
The Treatment

Yeah, he gets great people in. It is annoying that he announces the call letters - I don't blame him for that though; I'm sure he has to do it. Interesting that you don't like his interview style; I like it because he seems to me so genuinely interested in the person across from him - the questions and flow of conversation seem natural, not at all stagey. I like that.

Look, Melissa, we're agreeing again!  ;D  What fascinates me about Elvis is that he gets me interested in people that I've otherwise dismissed or ignored, people like Ron Howard, Eli Roth, or Tyler Perry.  He always turns the conversation into something meaningful, like a conversation about old Westerns with Howard or the communal nature of theater v. film with Perry.  Of course, he also gave Roth room to ascribe a political and philosophical level to his Hostel movies (granted I haven't seen them, but all of Roth's responses seemed like "Dude! I thought of that!  That's what I wanted to do with my film!"  It just seemed disingenuous).

Practically two peas in a pod.  :) (You just have the one Tolkien blip. But you can get over that.  :) ) Yes, that's excatly my feeling about him - making me interested in people I wouldn't have thought much about otherwise. I so frequently come away after listening, too, feeling like I've been edified in some way - weird, but, as you say, he goes to some deeper, more meaningful level than most interviewers seem to be able to do. He's obviously so well-read, too - I love the kinds of connections he makes.

I listen to Watching Theology, too, I love that kind of philosophical analysis of films - Melissa and Joe are great together, too. I hope they can do more regular shows at some point - Shaun of the Dead would be fun!

I know I heard the end of it the other day and he made his leaving joke and then he repeated it, both expecting it not to play with the audience initially but assuming this meant you just needed his genius repeated for you. Things like this assure me of his hypocracy as he has be trying to take down Car Talk for laughing at their own jokes.

My wife hates Le Show with a passion. She says all it consists of is Harry Shearer explaining the jokes to the audience before he tells them. He reads some bit of news, tells why it is absurd/funny, then makes a ten minute long, one-joke skit about it.

My only problem with Radio Lab is that there isn't enough of it. What a fun show!

Yeah the Naxos one is 20 mins. It's usually for a new CD they have out. They play parts and talk aboput the music and the history around it. I like it a lot. Its one of my favorites. The last one was Franz Liszt arranging Beethoven's Ninth for two pianos. I loved it and went out and bought the CD. They'll play stuff you havn't heard that you'll instantly go out and buy and you can listen to all the old podcasts because they don't get old. Definitely one of my favorites!

It is just straight readings of his pieces. I like it. I had never heard of Mr. Emerson until I stumbled across this podcast. It's pretty interesting stuff. The titles are of the like Art, The American Scholar Adress, Circles or Each and All. If your familiar with his work you might have this stuff already. I found it fascinating

The guy who narrates Classic Tales Podcast has an extremely annoying voice. But a great list, Ronan.  Thanks for the heads up on the Naxos podcast: is it long enough to make it worth hearing?
Yeah the Naxos one is 20 mins. It's usually for a new CD they have out. They play parts and talk aboput the music and the history around it. I like it a lot. Its one of my favorites. The last one was Franz Liszt arranging Beethoven's Ninth for two pianos. I loved it and went out and bought the CD. They'll play stuff you havn't heard that you'll instantly go out and buy and you can listen to all the old podcasts because they don't get old. Definitely one of my favorites!

Thanks, I will seek this out. I love Naxos!

You should check out Music Matters, which I think is the best podcast for classical music. TOm Service is an excellent presenter, and they do some great interviews.

Surprised Adam & Joe isn't on your list, also.

In Our Time can be quite a tough listen: I have to be in 'the mood'. But I like how weary and agitated Melvin gets throughout.

Yeah I might go for the Adam & Joe one. A lot of comedy podcasts don't usually work. (Remember the Bugle one from the Times). your right about the Bragg one but I loved the ones that had Newton & Yeats and Irish Politics. Its definitely a mood one. I don't take it when I go running

Ronan, what's the Ralph Waldo Emerson podcast like?  Is it more serious or more hip?  I adore Mr. Emerson.

It is just straight readings of his pieces. I like it. I had never heard of Mr. Emerson until I stumbled across this podcast. It's pretty interesting stuff. The titles are of the like Art, The American Scholar Adress, Circles or Each and All. If your familiar with his work you might have this stuff already. I found it fascinating

Please tell me you are not an American.

The other film ones:

Mark Kermode
Left Field Cinema (interesting views on new releases and classics)
The Film Programme (BBC Radio 4, always has an interesting interview or two)
Film Weekly (Guardian Newspaper film podcast, ok, but not as good as those above)

Other good ones:

Skeptoid (imagine what scully would be like if all the stuff in the x files did have a rational explanation, very enjoyable stuff)
Ask A Ninja (still has the occasional gem, but has gotten worse)
Point of Inquiry (in their words: Sceience, Skepticism, Rationalism, Humanism. Good interviews each week on these issues, if those words turned you on , get this, if you think it'll just be dry talk on a weekly basis, you'll find it to be like that)


All of these will fall into second place whenever a new Filmspotting hits the pod!

Hey Filmspotting fans, as a huge admirer of the show I'd like to introduce you to A DAMN PODCAST. It's a Salt Lake City based podcast with weekly reviews of your favorite movies by the ever so cultured and hilarious Adam Sherlock and Adam Palcher. In - depth conversations about modern film classics and top 5 lists that will enthral you with ridiculousness, knowledge and humor. Come enjoy, relate, nerd-out and laugh as we bullshit about movies. This follows a similar format as filmspotting (Thanks you for the inspiration Adam & Matty), there is more swearing, more drinking, less professionalism, and we like spoilers, BUT if you enjoy Filmspotting, give us a try, it can get quite hilarious.

This week we geek out fanboy style with the new Christopher Nolan comic book epic The Dark Knight. Also, the first installment of our Joe Dante Film Festival, the eighties kids classic Explorers. Then our TOP 5 most anticipated upcoming movies. Music by Novelists and DulceSky.

Please give us feedback, we love it!

Great interview with del Toro on Kermode yesterday.

There was also an interview with del Toro on yesterday's The Film Programme. del Toro's comments there about The Hobbit have me a little worried: he says Bilbo's a "prissy" (his exact word) character who is changed by his experiences on his journey - experiences which del Toro believes are a metaphor for the trenches in WWI. Tolkien makes clear that Bilbo's not prissy; he just didn't know what he was capable of or interested in before his adventures. And I think Tolkien pretty explicitly did not want his work to be related to actual historical events, specifically, the war.

Ah well - adaptations can be interesting even if they're unfaithful, and del Toro's certainly an interesting director. And I suppose, from a Freudian point of view, one could argue that the war was more a part of Tolkien's psyche and writing than he might think.

Cool! Vampyr did sound really fascinating. Be sure you post some comments about it after you watch it. And yeah, I love that part of the show, too.

Did you listen to last week's show? I was feeling really irritated with the interview with José Padilha; Padilha's interesting thoughts/ideas/explanations kept getting interrupted and patronized, I thought. And then the interviewer summed up the interview by saying the director had no idea what kind of film he actually made! Nice.

Nowhere in Mulberry - TV News Movies and humor... kind of like best weekever, and may take mulitple listens to enjoy, but it grows on you.
FilmFlimFlam - The Hollywood Saloons brother basically.... same type of show, meaning good production values....
Real Time with Bill Maher - don't have HBO, so it's nice to atleast "hear" his show
and the one I'm ashamed of....


Mugglecast..... yes, a Harry CINECAST!ing Potter podcast... the wife got me hooked on Potter, and this is such a dorky, well meaning cast... it's hard to turn off....

In descending order of favorite-ness:

Gay Pimpin' with Jonny McGovern — It's very, very gay, so I don't expect anyone else to like it. They talk about wiener an awful lot, and it's incredibly infantile and inside-joke-y, ie. perfect for me.

WNYC's Radio Lab — Most everyone who listens to one episode falls immediately in love with it. It's a look at very simple things, like sleep, from a scientific perspective. But done in a really engaging manner. Not your father's Discovery channel.

KCRW's The Business — A look at Hollywood from the business side. I don't like Kim Masters, the host, as much as I did her predecessor. However I still like it. I find the business side of Hollywood more interesting than the artistic side sometimes.

KCRW's Design and Architecture — It's only 30 minutes long and it only comes out once a month. Even though it's called "Design and Architecture" it mostly concerns architecture. It's focused on southern California. I like that because it's about stuff that I don't know about in Dallas.

On the Media — We already talked about this in another thread.

Studio 360 with Kurt Andersen — Andersen is just a wonderful, wonderful interviewer and host. Sometimes the subjects are outside of my interests, but I listen anyway.

This American Life — Enough has been said about it.

Onion News Network — Ditto.

PRI: The Sound of Young America — Jesse Thorne is another great host, and he fits the public-radio mold to a T. Because his interests trend younger than Andersen or Terry Gross, he takes a "younger" approach. He's more self-aware, and he doesn't mind inserting himself into guest banter. Sometimes that gets on my nerves, but other times it doesn't.

KCRW's The Treatment — I listen faithfully, and sometimes I don't know why. I'm ambivalent about the show. A lot of the time I actively dislike Elvis Mitchell. Other times I love the answers he gets from his guests.

I'm not a big fan of LFC, the dry presentation doesn't really do it for me. But, I used to post at the SS boards until Rich, the guy who runs SS, decided to go off on Mike when a poster criticized the trend of Movies You Should See lately to only review mainstream stuff. It was a valid point, and Rich could have responded with a "Well, we review movies we like, that's all I can really say." Instead he launched into Mike for no reason, telling the poster that if he wanted to hear pretentious drivel then he could go listen to Dawson's bullshit podcast, but he better be prepared to be a listener of one because, no one wants to hear what Dawson has to say and that's why his leaving MYSS was the best thing that ever could have happened to the show.

After I read that I left the forums immediately and haven't been back since, such uncalled for malice towards someone in a public forum where he knows their friends will see it but that Mike can't respond. I considered giving up MYSS as well, but I happen to like hearing Craig and Allison talk about movies so I figured I could put up with Rich in audio form.

The History of the World in 100 Objects.  The British museum curator has selected 100 museum objects (one per podcast) and by telling of the objects use or making etc, he illuminates the historical era of the object.  Only 8 podcasts of the 100 have been made available so far. (available at iTunes)

The podcasts I love as much as Filmspotting:
Philosophy Bites-- Cambridge scholars discuss philosophy for 15 minutes
This American Life--Don't need to belabor this
Kulrich on Science-- Also called "science lab"; funny, entertaining science discoveries
60 Second Psych-- Brief findings in psychology
The Ethicist-- NY Times practical and funny column on ethics
In Our Time With Melvin Bragg-- Discussion on history, science and ideas from BBC
Watching Theology-- Excellent discussion on films, if you've already seen them

Podcasts I really like, but not as much as Filmspotting:
Stuff you Should Know-- Friendly discussions on topic we might know a little about, but they give us the scoop
Stuff You didn't learn in History Class-- I call them the "history chicks"; smart, friendly discussions on history, both popular and esoteric
Tony Campolo-- A liberal evangelical discussed news and religion topics in depth; used to be an advisor for President Clinton
Science Friday-- All the latest news about science, discussed with the scientists themselves

I really recommend "Ouch" (http://bbc.co.uk/ouch), which is a disability talk show based in the UK but with a world focus. It'll change the way you think about disability in general, and often has fantastic discussions of disability in the media.

This month's includes a discussion on Avatar and the implications of having a disabled main character.

So I've just listened to a couple of Filmjunk episodes (the latest one and their top 10 of 2009 one). I don't really mind rambling, unstructured podcasts (I rather enjoy Movies You Should See every once in a while, for example), but these really were very  unstructured. I suppose if I got to "know" the hosts a bit better, the conversation would be more interesting, but so far, I'm not finding it all that interesting.

The biggest turn-off though? They've slammed Filmspotting 2-3 times - for being snobby and too structured basically. (Seriously?) Everyone has their favorite kinds of podcasts, fine. I don't care. Tastes are different. But for the hosts of one film podcast to bad talk another film podcast? That's seriously lame. So not cool.

I haven't listened to that podcast, probably never will, but I support such behaviour on principle. I love Filmspotting though, even though I haven't listened to a whole show for a few weeks because I haven't seen the main films being discussed so I just skip to feedback and Top 5's and stuff.

Not really, and this isn't a comment on the podcast at all, but there shouldn't be a line between mainstream and indie, there should simply be movies reviewed.

Once again, not really, maybe for you, maybe for me. When looking for movie podcasts I am looking for ones that simply review movies, I don't want them taking into account whether a film is mainstream or indie, because if they do that then they are already putting forth a bias and I can't rely on their review. I don't believe FS does this, which is why I don't think FS is a niche podcast, they review movies, some are mainstream, some are indie, but they review movies because they are movies, not the label that has been attached to them.

But different people are interested in different movies.  And if a podcast or whatever just reviews "movies in general" then they tend to gravitate toward the blockbusters, which is fine, but one review of those is sufficient.  I like Filmspotting not because they are "snobbish", but because they review films that aren't as well known, whether it be indie, foreign or before Star Wars.  It is about broadening the scope of movies reviewed.  And if that's "snobbish", so be it.

Okay, when they do review big movies, they may have a tendency to not like it, but they don't slam it.  They just explain what they consider the weaknesses and the strengths-- the latest Mel Gibson review is a good example of this.  And if they tend to not care for big movies-- like, say, Avatar-- they are just expressing their opinion.  I don't always agree with that opinion about the movie as a whole, but their points are well taken. 

For me, I'm less interested in hearing or reading a review that I agree with, so much as it is intelligent.  Which is why I don't listen or read the far majority of movie reviews out there.  Also because I tend to only focus on one or two reviewers.  I don't have time for more.  So out of the many reviewers I've listened to or read, my choice is clear: Adam and Matty. 

I also really like Watching Theology, but they have so many spoilers, it's really an analysis, not a review.

I actually agree with Bill in that I find the distinction rather uninteresting. Once you shut off a movie because of how it's categorized, you're basically being a snob(which is irrelevant to Filmspotting, because they don't do that anyway), and Art can be found in whatever status of movie or particular brow a movie belongs to. And once you don't review movies because everybody else reviews it, you're basically saying your perspective doesn't really mean anything, and your only value is to chime in on films that have been less seen. And hasn't specialty film journals of the last, oh, 50 years or so taught us that mainstream film can be interpreted and received in a myriad of different ways? Why do we only "need" one review of a Big Movie?

We certainly don't need only one review of any movie.  (Except Transformers 2)  But often there needs to be time to give perspective and to appreciate the depth of a film.  And also I'd prefer to hear someone's take on a film because they were interested in seeing it, not because some distribution company paid their boss who pays them to watch it and review it.  If someone reviews a movie more than a year old, it's more likely to be an honest, thoughtful opinion.

There are some audio issues, and the main review of The Devil's Backbone didn't inspire the kind of discussion we were hoping for. It's still alright, and the second half is generally better, where we get to talk about a bunch of other movies. Anyway, check it out if you're interested. And we also promise a better 3rd episode. It's already recorded and we both felt it was much better.

Filmspotting

NPR's On The Media

Religions of the Ancient Mediterranean Podcast (that's a podcast put out by a religious studies professor at York University in Toronto where he talks about, you guessed, it religions of the ancient Mediterranean)

Savage Love Podcast

The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe

Skeptoid (a nice ten-minute podcast where host Brian Dunning takes on conspiracy theories, bullshit medicine, even outrageous martial artists to task... if you're into that sort of thing)

I listened for a while to This American Life and quickly got bored by it... my friends tell me I just happened to start off with boring episodes but I don't have the same endless time to listen anymore so I haven't tried again.

Starting listening to this based on your recommendation:
So far I've hear their episodes on The Insider, Where the Wild Things Are , Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure and A Christmas Story.  Man they've brought up a lot of movies I like, for instance: A Simple Plan.  Bill it was fun to hear two of your emails read on The Insider episode.  Both very well written!

I'm a big fan of A Damn Movie Podcast.

Starting listening to this based on your recommendation:
So far I've hear their episodes on The Insider, Where the Wild Things Are , Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure and A Christmas Story.  Man they've brought up a lot of movies I like, for instance: A Simple Plan.  Bill it was fun to hear two of your emails read on The Insider episode.  Both very well written! (I was listening half-asleep on a plan, so I remember what they were on now - but I remember them being good)

Thanks, glad to hear you like it, and my emails. :) I really do like giving them feedback because I don't think enough people do and I always love their responses, whether they agree or disagree with what I say. I like the variety of films they cover and the way they cover them. Does this feel like a podcast you're going to stick with?

Oh yeah - definitely.  It's  a great format because they give themselves tons of time to talk freely about the film.  I especially liked the one on The Insider in particular, because I always loved that film but really couldn't put my finger on why.  These guys really got into why it was good without trying to tie it to some fixed critical statutes of greatness.  I actually listened to the review twice I liked it so much.

I'm finishing the "A Christmas Story" one now and I've downloaded about 7 more.

I told you man, that's why I love their podcast so much. Even when I don't agree with their take the way they engage a film is so interesting to me and they always allow themselves enough time to really go in-depth.  :)

let me know your thoughts on the ending... kind of goes into the liberal thoughts of not blaming criminals for their actions based on surrounding circumstances.... and also about the legals gaurdians response to the man who went down to mexico...

The Tobolowsky Files http://www.slashfilm.com/category/features/slashfilmcast/the-tobolowsky-files/ (http://www.slashfilm.com/category/features/slashfilmcast/the-tobolowsky-files/)

This has become my favorite podcast and I am sad that by the end of the day I will have caught up on all the old episodes.  If you do not know him by name, you for sure will all know him by sight or as "Ned the insurance salesman" in Groundhog Day.

These are all just stories told, mostly uninterrupted, from Steven Tobolowsky's life.  Sometimes he is talking about his ex-gf, his childhood, his parents, working on a movie, etc.  Most of them are just everyday stories but he is just a great story teller and even if I believe I know what is coming I am still moved.

I'm not sure what the listening protocol is, but usually I'm just like you, if I haven't seen the movie/s then I don't listen. With this podcast however I love their insight and banter so much that I listen to the ones about films I haven't seen as well, they've actually turned me on to a few movies that way.

My rule of thumb is, the second I decide I'm going to eventually see a film I try to go completely radio silent on it.  If I plan on never seeing it, then I'll listen to talk about it, because I always find the disussion interesting.  That does backfire sometimes -  From what little I heard of OldBoy I decided BAH - never gonna see it, so I listened to a spoiler discussion of it on the /filmcast, and now I WANT to see it and wish I hadn't gotten spoiled!!

Exceptions would be like (For ADMP) their last epside had French Connection and Hoosiers.  I've seen neither, but they are both so culturally well-known that I'm a bit less afraid of spoilers in those, so I'll probably listen to that one.

I've downloaded them all but not listened yet.  My iPod was stolen the other weekend so I have stopped listening to most podcasts for about a month until I get my new phone.  Unless you want me to play it as something to use to fall asleep which at the moment is the FilmJunk podcast (and I don't mean that to slam FilmJunk, it is that it is just so long that I can play it and will usually fall asleep before it is over.)

lol. Listen whenever you have time. Or don't. Free country.

btw. It bears repeating. If you like the show, give it a review on iTunes. Even a rating is nice, but a review is great. If we get more reviews, particularly good reviews, the podcast comes up higher when people search. It's a big help. Also, tell your friends about the cast. Though, if your friends are like mine, you probably tell them about different podcasts all the time and they simply ignore you.

I think you were pretty good, especially once the main review got going, and especially considering it was the first time you'd done this sort of thing and you were jumping on a train that had already been going a little while. I think the next episode was much better, despite all the recording issues.

Especially after listening to the Best of A Damn Movie Podcast in which they played some clips from their earliest episodes and there was noticeable "dead air" time, I've been thinking about how difficult it must be for podcast/radio people to keep the talk so continuously flowing. The A Damn Movie podcast guys often talk over each other, which actually works pretty well, and they're in the same room together, which must make it easier to respond quickly. But you three are doing a great job - I really enjoy your discussions, and I think you have a nice dynamic together, which, I'm sure, will only improve with time.

Glad to hear it. I'm still transitioning into the whole process so hopefully things will be a lot smoother as we go on. Of course, Corey edits out a lot of my mistakes. I left so many awkward pauses this last episode. I'm not like Chuck who just dives in, I take a moment or so and then I speak.
Especially after listening to the Best of A Damn Movie Podcast in which they played some clips from their earliest episodes and there was noticeable "dead air" time, I've been thinking about how difficult it must be for podcast/radio people to keep the talk so continuously flowing. The A Damn Movie podcast guys often talk over each other, which actually works pretty well, and they're in the same room together, which must make it easier to respond quickly. But you three are doing a great job - I really enjoy your discussions, and I think you have a nice dynamic together, which, I'm sure, will only improve with time.

Hey, you listen to ADMP, I had no idea.  ;D
Started listening because you spoke so highly of it. :) I like it.

Super cool, glad to hear it.  :)
Doom was it your email that they read out on the 100th show?

Yep, I was the last of the emails that they read.

By the way. Vote for us on Podcast Alley. Ain't hard. Here's the link to our page. (http://www.podcastalley.com/podcast_details.php?pod_id=95782#) Just go there and vote. The more votes we get, the higher we get on the list of Top Podcasts in the TV & Film section. The higher we get, the more likely people will actually take a look. Same said for iTunes. If you download the podcast using iTunes then you probably have an iTunes account, which means you can very easily just give a star rating to the show. If you want you can even give a review. The more star ratings, the more chance the podcast gets noticed by others. More reviews means even more chance.

Oh right. First of all, Sky Captain is not great, but still entertaining. The main thing is that's it's one of the most important films released in the last decade when you consider what it demonstrated with regards to digital effects. Suddenly it was possible to create an entire world within a film with only very basic sets and costumes.

I believe Lucas was doing that in Episode I (1999) and II (2002), before "Sky Captain" (2004) was released?
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: Melvil on June 08, 2010, 12:58:45 PM
Yeah, that's giving Sky Captain a little too much credit. There was nothing sudden about it, that kind of stuff had been done for years before then. If anything I would credit it for bringing the possibilities of a highly stylized world to mainstream attention, something that was definitely capitalized on in Sin City and 300.

Despite not using digital effects(to my knowledge), Lars von Trier's "Europa" is absolutely the forerunner for "Sin City" by combining black and white and color, and using back projection instead of a greenscreen combined with the knowing approach to it's genre (Though I think "Europa" is a masterpiece, and "Sin City" is just very good), and it even influenced "Schindler's List". Spielberg apparently even offered von Trier a job in Hollywood!

I hope I've gotten better. I feel like I cut down drastically on my use of "ums" and "likes" in the past couple of (unreleased) episodes. The one we did today I feel pretty good about. Plus, I think I had some good jokes--or at least Corey thought they were funny--and then I totally butchered my last line and had to redo it.  :P

Having been away for a while, I loved when I first started talking during the Main Dictation and then completely blanked out.  Just hung there.  I think Corey's picked up on the fact when I say 'uhhh' with nothing afterwards, it means I'm finished.

Last night at work I listened to the last 2 eps of MDC Podcast in a row.  I want to compliment FroHam and Sam on some great discussion.  The Pontypool episode is probably my favorite episode of the show (though you really have to have seen Pontypool to fully enjoy it.)

The one downside for me, is I find myself wanting to jump in when I disagree or feel I have something to add.

And some people may be pestered by all the "you know" "I think" and "seriously"s, but they should get past that and eat up the great discussion.

I would say to FroHam, don't be so defensive about your picks.  One of the episodes, during a Double Shot and two Further Dictations you said at the start "It's not a great movie, but..."

You should listen to our MDC episode of Toy Story 3 as we discuss old school vs. CGI.

Only a little bit! That's a lot better than most discussions on this topic. Good job. ;D It was awesome having 1SO back, I do really enjoy the dynamic when there's three opinions on the table. The discussion was good as well. It was only when you got into the stylistic "limitations" and differences between 2D and 3D animation that I started disagreeing.

As always, thanks for the show!

I've been listening to the podcast right along and I'm almost caught up to current.  All in all it's a good format and I like the discussions you guys have had so far (last one I listened to was on Speed Racer).  My only suggestion is you let your hair down a little bit - trade in a bit of professionalism to let your personalities shine through a little bit more. But that's a minor quibble.  Keep up the good work guys!  :)

Also, 1SO's inadvertent Cloony joke in this episode was probably the most awkwardly funny moment on the podcast. Corey and I are silent for a few seconds and then finally I had to ask if it was a joke.

Dave Dameshek is a guy that is in the Jimmy Kimmel/Adam Carolla/Bill Simmons posse. I didnt really like his work much before, but his podcast Daves of Thunder with pal Dave Feeny, after some VERY rough early episodes, has become an incredibly hilarious and interesting show. Better, I think than the podcasts of the aforementioned Carolla or Simmoms.

Also, on the Carolla Podcast network is a movie show called the Film Vault. I stuck around for 4 or 5 episodes, but Im done there. Its quite bad in my opinion.

Kermode has claimed that the Twilight series is better than the original Star Wars series, despite the first 2 Star Wars films being better than the first 2 Twilight films. By that logic:

Eclipse – Return of the Jedi > (Star Wars + Empire Strikes Back) – (Twilight + New Moon)

He is mad, still enjoyable, but mad.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: Bondo on July 26, 2010, 05:36:47 PM
I don't know how to compare those two series. I suppose it would be close-ish for me. Eclipse probably edges out Return of the Jedi and New Moon edges Empire (which is my least favorite of the three anyway), but the first Twilight film is bad and A New Hope is probably the best of the Star Wars films. So I'd come closer to saying the Star Wars films are better despite the last two Twilight films being better than the last two Star Wars films.

Why is worse?    I don't agree with his opinions - for the most part.  I think  he actually makes some valid points regarding film criticism and film fandom.  I think the reason I dislike him is the air of smug superiority he has among those who do not meet his standards.  But it was  a great episode because they had someone whose opinions were contrarian and divisive. It's pretty easy to have someone like  say Kevin Smith on the podcast - no one is going to get into too heated debate and the hosts and their listeners are obviously fans; put someone that is an magnet for controversy and who many of the film geek community hate, treat him with respect,  let him voice his opinions and argue them, that's harder.  And they pulled it off.

I agree, bb6634. It was interesting to hear White talk; like it or not, he's a film critic that we who love film will encounter, and I thought it was cool that the /Film guys were willing to try to engage with him and listen to him and that they treated him with respect even when he treated them condescendingly. They asked great questions and were incredibly professional.

What's so wrong with that approach? I've said this elsewhere, but Yahtzee approaches video games with the mentality that he won't like what he is going to play, or at the very least it will just be another game. His criticism doesn't suffer for it, he's able to know when a game blows him away or he enjoys it that it really is a good game, and it allows him to seek out only the best from the medium. Film does not have to be different at all if one chooses to approach it in that manner.

I thought Armond White (I love how even his name is contrarian) made some interesting points.  However, he gave himself away when he said that films were about "visual composition and kinetics".  There may certainly be some truth to the idea that these are common virtues in many good films, but they are not absolutes.  It seems like he has chosen some fairly arbitrary criteria and elevated them above all others.  I could just as easily say that good cinema is about "story and character".  By my criteria, the Duplas brothers would make good movies, but by his criteria, they would not.

Of course, he's entitled to judge movies by any criteria he wants to, but it's harder to argue that these criteria are objectively true.  And unless he can do that, he is not entitled to be so contemptuous of the opinion of others.

The Afterdark was more enjoyable than the regular podcast in the sense that Armond's elitism and ego came out in such (a more) damning display.

I thought Armond White (I love how even his name is contrarian) made some interesting points.  However, he gave himself away when he said that films were about "visual composition and kinetics".  There may certainly be some truth to the idea that these are common virtues in many good films, but they are not absolutes.  It seems like he has chosen some fairly arbitrary criteria and elevated them above all others.  I could just as easily say that good cinema is about "story and character".  By my criteria, the Duplas brothers would make good movies, but by his criteria, they would not.

Of course, he's entitled to judge movies by any criteria he wants to, but it's harder to argue that these criteria are objectively true.  And unless he can do that, he is not entitled to be so contemptuous of the opinion of others.
This was something I was thinking about, too. And even further damning is the fact that after White sets out his criteria, he doesn't hold himself to them and doesn't critique a film on those grounds. His points about Inception had very little to do with those criteria. It was so ironic, too, that he had a problem with Nolan's portrayal of women in his films - which, in and of itself might be a good point to raise - but then he didn't critique Bay for the same point. Transformers 2 is such a bastion for feminism!  ::)

Very true.  AW didn't mention story or character at all in reference to T2.  It is almost as simple as saying - it has good visual composition and kinetics, therefore it is a good movie.  Nor is it at all clear how T2's visual composition says anything profound about the relationship between American's and their toys, as he seems to claim.

I think listening to Amond White was like watching Transformers 2.  On the surface, it's all shiny and clever.  But then it starts to shake, and unravel, and all the pieces seem to click into place in ways that defy logic or reason.  And it all happens so fast you don't know what just happened, but you can kinda tell it was nonsense.

Listening to /film after dark with Armond White. :'(
/facepalm

Worst week of /filmcast.

Why is worse?    I don't agree with his opinions - for the most part.  I think  he actually makes some valid points regarding film criticism and film fandom.  I think the reason I dislike him is the air of smug superiority he has among those who do not meet his standards.  But it was  a great episode because they had someone whose opinions were contrarian and divisive. It's pretty easy to have someone like  say Kevin Smith on the podcast - no one is going to get into too heated debate and the hosts and their listeners are obviously fans; put someone that is an magnet for controversy and who many of the film geek community hate, treat him with respect,  let him voice his opinions and argue them, that's harder.  And they pulled it off. 

I just listened to the After Hours part with Arnold White and he really comes off as being very pretentious to me.  To an extent, he reminds me of somebody a bit bitter to be losing his living due to the new media and shift in technology.

I do hope he goes back to listen to himself on that Podcast just to listen to the way he came off.

White reminds me of John Simon, another critic back in the day who was equally divisive and pretentious.  Of course I don't think Simon would think Transformers 2 and Crank 2 were masterpieces...

I think the one host who seems to coordinate the discussions (Simon, I think?) is the more interesting of the people on the show. I would agree that sometimes the discussions are inarticulate and don't get anywhere.

I went into the back catalogue and listened to the Inception episode. The guy who didn't like it repeated 50 times that it was an annoying movie and the girl who liked it repeated 50 times that the reason she liked it was because it 'was awesome.' It was a terrible episode.

I have listened to a few of their podcasts (Braveheart, The Big Lebowski, Harold and Maude), and it's just okay for me so far.  I feel like there really isn't a lot of insight, just kind of a "greatest hits" recap of the film (which is somewhat enjoyable, but not unique).  I think that the Harold and Maude/Sunrise show is the best that I have listened to so far, and will make me listen to a few more.  The guys have a good rapport, but it just gets a bit repetitive, everything is "awesome" or "rad", and they were talking about Clint Eastwood and for some reason it really rubbed me the wrong way that Sherlock called him a f*cker and a dude.  They were praising him the whole time, but it just seemed a bit crass to me.  But like I said, I liked the Harold and Maude show, so I am going to check out a few more.

Using cinecast as a sub word has nothing to do with another podcast.  That's pure coincidence.  Cinecast was the first name of the Filmspotting podcast; that's the only reason for the sub word.

Why is the sky blue? Why do birds sing? :) I don't know really; it's just always been so. It probably has something to do with my grandmother, whom I adored, and who was an Anglophile herself (in a very quiet, unobtrusive, unAmerican? :) way) , and also something to do with the fact that my very favorite books from an early age were British. I just fell in love with British English and the kinds of British sensibilities I became familiar with in those books.

Wow...I didn't even realize there was an entire 27 page thread solely dedicated to podcasts on here.  Good god almighty haha...podcasts are both my greatest love since finally joining the 21st century and purchasing an mp3 player back in early 2009 (Zune, 120 gb...love it!)...and also the bane of my existence, as I find myself often listening to so many, or wanting to catch up and listen to new ones, that I legitimately start getting stressed out about the sheer number of options and wonderful ways to learn through these things.  

I try to keep things at about 2-3 podcasts only per interest, here's my current lineup:

-Filmspotting  -  Film
-Kevin Pollack Chat Show  -  Film / comedy / tv...great, lengthy, 1:30 - 2 hr interviews...goes into deal depth with all his guests
-The Moth  -  Storytelling...live shows from different US cities, usually unknown's or very minor celebrities
-News From Lake Wobegone - Storytelling  (thankfully this only has Garrison Keiller's stories, not the entire Prarie Home Companion show)
-Selected Shorts  -  Readings of short stories by well known authors
-Radiolab  - Philosophy / science / exploring questions about how-why the world around us works
-This American Life  - Ira Glass hosts, great non sequitur stories/coverage on a range of topics
-Speaking of Faith w. Krista Tippett  - Great show exploring comparative religion, guest speakers and leaders from various faiths
-Bill Simmons' BS Report  -  Sports...my bball candy from Oct. - June
-Dan Patrick Show  -  Sports...truly a great mix of laugh out loud funny and insightful, great, witty interviews
-ESPN's NBA Today  -  The host, Ryan Russilo, makes this show amazing, great to compare his vs. B. Simmon's style


Others I've just started to check out (thanks to OneAprilDay for the recommendations!):

-Left Field Cinema - Mike Dawson
-The Treatment - Elvis Mitchell
-Slate's Movie Reviews

...and I'm always back and forth on Creative Screenwriting.  I read the majority of their magazine output back in the mid to late 90's, and I owe them a huge debt of gratitude as it had a lot to do with getting me into film.  That said, Jeff Goldsmith is just bloody awful as host/interviewer, and I really can't stand listening to him...but often it is well worth it because his guests are amazing and they really open up in his interviews, no matter how bad Goldsmith can be.  The interview with Sarah Polly about the making of Away From Her and her career was phenomenal, and is what originally got me to listen to more.  

Also just found out (thanks again OAD!) that some Filmspotters on here started one called the Movie Dictator Podcast , and I look forward to checking it out.

-ESPN's NBA Today  -  The host, Ryan Russilo, makes this show amazing, great to compare his vs. B. Simmon's style

I really, really like Russilo. He's head and shoulders above any of the other ESPN basketball guys in my book. The other NBA podcasts I listen to are Free Darko Presents: Disciples of Clyde, the Basketball Jones, and sometimes the NBA.com Hang Time podcast.

Totally with you on Russilo...he's got that rare combo of: incredibly intelligent insight + a naturally entertaining and engaging personality.  And he's just a bball dork at heart that is obsessed...I can't get enough.  He just posted his first in four months if you haven't heard it yet JBissell...Eastern and Western Conference predictions with two Truehoop guys (Arnovitz and a 2nd I didnt know).

I love the Free-Darko website, but in trying 2-3 of their podcasts, couldn't stand them at all.  Maybe I just heard some bad apples though.

Basketball Jones I just started getting into more via their website content, but I didn't even realize they had a podcast until you mentioned it.  Looks like their last update was 2/26/10 though, so you know if they will be re-upping for this season?

Yeah, the quality of the FD podcast kinda depends on the guests. Not a big fan of the regular hosts and the sound quality isn't always the best.

As far as BJ, I'm pretty recent to them. I spent most of my time on Yahoo's Ball Don't Lie. Looks like the BJ podcast is really a videocast that is also available in audio form. I've just been watching the team previews as they post them on the site. Looks like they're all up on the video feed and the most recent audio ones that I listened to were from mid-Sept. during FIBA. Depending on how long the usual podcast is, I'll probably just subscribe to the videocast.

Thanks for listing those DC. I'm definitely going to check a few of them out (Kevin Pollack Chat Show & Radiolab).

Smirnoff...two quick notes about both of those podcasts:

Kevin Pollack Chat Show - ...is, aside from Filmspotting, probably my favorite podcast.  It's just awesome. He's got the perfect personality for it...very funny, humble, self decpracating, doesn't take himself or the show too seriously at all, and yet puts out an incredibly engaging product.  It's really started to blow up big the past year, and I think the reasons for it's success is that:

a. Kevin Pollack is just his natural self at all times...there's no hiding behind some persona, it makes you feel like you're just in his living room chatting with friends.

b.  This show is PERFECT for people that hate short, canned interviews of people in the film/tv/comedy business on Late Night Talk Shows...which is all about promotion and prescripted material much of the time.  Here we get to see the guest speak for an hour and a half to sometimes TWO hours...we really get to hear the guest's natural personality come out, it's wonderful.

c.  Kevin Pollack asks great questions.  Unlike other interviewers, because Pollack was and is in the business himself as a well regarded comedian and actor, aka: he's been through the ropes himself and knows the right kind of topics to address that listeners would be interested in, but don't usually here stories about.  

d.  He tends to bring in names that we know, but rarely goes for mega stars.  You won't see a Brad Pitt or Kevin Spacey anytime on his show...Pollack tends to go for more underground names, indie names, people on the fringe that have a good reputation in the scene but aren't quite as nationally known, or nationally known to a far lesser extent.  IMO, it makes things more interesting, as the listener gets to hear more about a normal experience of people struggling to make it in the business, as opposed to people like Pacino who have the clout to choose whatever role they want.  "Bigger" names on his show would be guys like Eddie Izzard, Kevin Smith, Seth McFarlane, Matthew Perry, Jon Hamm, Bryan Cranston on his show.  His usual guest fair is more along the lines of people like  JK Simmons, Daniel Stern, Jane Campion, Jason Reitman, Hank Azaria, Jason Lee, Fred Willard, Ileana Douglass, Paul F. Tompkins, etc.  

This show is just great, I really hope you enjoy it.  Eddie Izzard is the one I started out with, #27...def. a great one to start with!


Radiolab - Hosted by Robert Krulwich and Jad Appenrod.  I will say, the show can take some getting used to, and might rub you the wrong way at first.  They do this thing where they use a lot of sound effects, and tend to splice in soundbites from guests intermingled with their own thoughts that takes some getting used to (trust me, you'll see what I mean very quickly!).  But once you can get past that, there's really some great stuff that is explored on this show, and the Krulwich / Appenrad combo have great chemistry with each other, and always bring a general excitement and fascination behind the topics they explore.

An example of a show would be - "Lying...what is it, why do we do it?" ... "Can animals feel emotion?"  "Why do we remember some things, but not others?" - Where they'd start with their own thoughts, introduce a topic (same way the Filmspotters do) and then go around interviewing various neurobiologists and other scientists and professors to get professional opinions on the topic, and to try and show the layperson some of the biology/chemistry/evolution behind some of the traits all of us show.  They take topics you'd think might become dull or dry and really do a nice job spicing it up and making it fun and entertaining...and their personal anecdotes as well as stories they tell from people they interview are wonderful.

Enjoy!

Wow, thanks so much for the primer, DC! Both sound right up my alley :)

Getting away from canned interviews, yes! I can't wait to listen to the JK Simmons show!

Post by: jbissell on October 21, 2010, 06:05:38 PM
Radiolab was one of those shows that I'd been aware of for years but never bothered to check out. Then I saw Jad give a talk at MaxFunCon about how they put the show together and I've been going back through the archives ever since.

Dallegre - I'm a huge fan of Tobolowsky the actor, but was completely unaware he had a podcast.  The only description it gives on my screen is "amazing stories told by Stephen Tobolowsky."  Does this mean he's reading literature short stories from other authors, ones he wrote himself, or is he just telling stories about things from his own life?

They are his own stories about his life (making movies, his ex-wife, current wife, friends etc) and it is an amazing podcast.  Go back to the beginning since it will give you better reference to the laster episodes since a lot of the stories are related.

Highly recommended, it is my favorite podcast, Filmspotting probably the 2nd
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: DarkCrystal on October 22, 2010, 03:27:09 AM
JDC - Wow.  You just made my week.  I wouldn't have been nearly excited if it was just Tobolowsky reading short stories from other authors...but with that voice of his, his wit, and his status as a not-nearly-heralded-enough actor...telling stories from his own life is the perfect medium for the guy.  I cannot WAIT to check this out!!!  

The whole storytelling thing I've really gotten into of late...it really is a lost art.  There's something magical about the whole sitting around the campfire vibe, just hearing people share things from their lives and being active listeners.  The Moth is a great concept that utilizes storytelling for the modern era, and Speakeasy DC (local to my current city) is a similar deal, where it allows the chance for people to get on stage and voice their own experiences.  You never know what you will get with those two podcasts...since they are told by amateur professional storytellers, or sometimes just totally random people walking in on "open mic story nights"...they can be very hit or miss.  But they are almost always interesting, and can walk you through a smorgasbord of emotion: joyful, sad, weird, quirky, funny, intelligent, crude...I always love the surprise element of not having a clue what is coming, and the fact that it's someone different each time. 

Anyhoo, thanks for the recommendation Dallegre & JDC!

They basically talk about the new releases, then the new on dvd. The hosts are both really funny guys so the show works pretty well.

JDC, thanks so much for recommending the Tobolowski Files!  I've listened to two so far, and have really enjoyed both...particularly the Bubbles the Hippo story & Tobolowski giving the hierarchy of intelligence between pets vs. humans in his household...with Blackberry the bunny coming in at #1 over his wife haha).  Even between episodes 1 and 2 there is already a noticeable difference of Tobolowski getting more comfortable with the podcast form, developing his own rhythm with the introductions, banter with David Chen, and his stories.  I can't wait to see (what I'm guessing!) will be continued improvement as I hear even more episodes.  This is truly a great find.

As It Occurs To Me is by UK comedian Richard Herring.

He set himself the challenge of writing a 45 minute show purely around the things that occurred (happened) or occurred (he thought of) in the previous week.

If you do chose to take this one up (i'm guessing only those who have heard of herring will) then please start from the beginning. The show gets put out unedited, and isn't for those who prefer milder comedy, not that the show aims to be crude, just the improvisations during the recordings take it that way.

Anyway, I can see lots of people not liking this, but it's my absolute fave so I thought I'd share.

To give you an idea of my tastes, along with FS I love the Tobolowsky Files, Kermode and Mayo and Film Sack.

I heard him on the Adam Corolla podcast and it was a wasted episode.  Sometimes Adam does a proper interview even if he talks about himself most of the time but this time they just did the news and one of the bits and let Stephen sit it on it.  He chimed in a few times but really just sat there and they gave him a plug.  Why invite a guest on if you are not going to actually interview them?

Tim - Very cool to hear that man.  Because of the wonderful recommendations of The Tobolowsky (the Russian y, not the Polish i  ;)) Files others have made on here, I've finally had time to start sifting through them.  I'm still a newbie and only on episode 6 (maybe 7?) but the first 5-6 have just been wonderful.  His mix of humbleness, humor, and insightful storytelling is a real breath of fresh air.  I love how he makes it able to relate to anybody, but also drops a lot of behind the scenes knowledge about his own path in the ridiculous business known as the film industry.

I kept wondering to myself when Chen would give his email address out if he really would take the time to reply or if there were just too many listeners...great to hear he takes the time to actually do so.  

I'm curious...do people know where his podcast "ranks", in terms of #'s of listeners?  I have no sense if it's really popular or just a tiny niche podcast that not too many people know about.  For instance, I wonder if more/less people know of Filmspotting than The Tobolowsky Files?

As far as Left Field Cinema, no, it is pretty much like it is.  If you want unscripted then watch Movies You Should See which comes off the same Simply Syndicated channel (http://www.simplysyndicated.com/ (http://www.simplysyndicated.com/)) which is usually just 3 or 4 friends sitting around BS'ing about some film or another from the past.  I can't remember if Mike Dawson is also part of the group or not since it has been a long time since I listened to either.

Correction, maybe Left Field Cinema is not part of Simply Syndicated, for some reason I thought it was a spin off from there but I don't see it on their website

Smirnoff - Glad you're enjoying the Radiolab!  It's a fun show...you always learn something in the pop-science realm, they do it with good anecdotes in an easy-to-understand way, and they never take themselves too seriously.  Really well done show, although you'll discover they can go a bit overboard with the sound effects and quirkyness sometimes.  

Left Field Cinema - I admire the guy because he's clearly real intelligent, passionate about film, and knows his stuff...but it can get a little "book-y".  Not necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes I wish he'd inject it with a little more personality and riff/adlib things some more.  My other problem is that sometimes I don't think he goes into examples enough...he'll say things like, "This doesn't work" or "Gorgeous cinematagraphy" without citing WHAT he means by that, or referencing particular scenes or shots in the movie that back up his opinions.

That said, when he's "on" he gives awesome insight and I find myself always thinking about a movie in a new way, or revaluating my own opinions, or wanting to rewatch something because he brought it up.  Mike Dawson is at his best when he's either:  a. Talking about movies he personally loves, and the level of attention in his dissection he gives them  b. When he goes into the nuts and bolts detail and nuanced layers of a film instead of being more vague.  Here are some Left Field Cinema episodes I really enjoyed that I would recommend:

-Analyzing the First 5 Minutes of Die Hard
-Analyzing the First 10 minutes of Serenity
-Andrei Tarkovsky's Mirror (flat out wonderful analysis, and you hear his passion & personality come out)
-Overlooked Gems - My Left Foot
-Guilty Pleasures - Strange Days

It sure keeps things lively, but man... the editor for the show must really earn his paycheques!


I agree with everything you said about left field cinema. I was blown away by the thoroughness of his Glengarry Glen Ross review. He went so far as to outline the important political/idealogical shift taking place from the Carter to Reagan years. Wow.

But yeah, I'd love to hear him talking off the cuff sometime.

I've really been enjoying Left Hand Cinema.  I don't remember who recommended it to me, but whoever it was, thanks.

I heard about it from 1SO since he recommended the Stalker episode to me in preparation of watching that (still haven't gotten to it yet)...but I have listened to a few relating to things I've seen. I don't tend to listen to them if it isn't something I have seen or plan on seeing though as he strikes me as a bit too pretentious for my tastes.

Is that Left Hand Cinema or Left Field Cinema? If the latter, he is not so much pretentious as academic, well to me anyway.

Left Field.  I have a cold.  My brain isn't working.  Sorry.

Thanks for the tip.  I've been really enjoying this.

Agreed.  Another excellent tip.  The Edgar Wright one in particular was brilliant.  I hope KS branches out beyond directors he personally knows.  I also hope he manages to persuade Quentin Tarantino to do one.

...wow, can you imagine how amazing a 45-50 minute podcast would be with Quentin as a guest?  The man is such an encyclopedia of film, I can't get enough of Tarantino dorking out on his favorite subject.  I always love hearing him speak, and he always gives some fascinating insights to his own film making process, and other director's that have influenced his work. 

On the Kevin Pollack Chat Show, one of the two episodes where Pollack has Freaks & Geeks' Sam Levine on as a guest, Levine tells an awesome story about Inglorious Basterds, and how Quentin pulled a great director's gimmick out of his hat to conjure an intense performance by Levine in one scene.  Levine also talks about Tarantino giving an opening speech to all the actors, which sounds inspiring as hell from the details described.

An informal poll...I'm curious if people:

a. Have a small number (1-4) of podcasts that you subscribe to, and listen to religiously, not missing an episode.  

b. Have a medium-large number (5-10) of podcasts subscribed to, and listen to religiously, not missing an episode.

c. Have a medium-large number (5-10) of podcasts subscribed to, but only listen fanatically to 1-3 of them, and pick and choose with the remaining.  

d. Have a medium-large number (5-10) of podcasts subscribed to, never listen to any regularly, but hunt and pick through all the choices based on which episodes sound interesting.  

e.  Have a huge amount of podcasts (10+) subscribed to, listen regularly to some, hunt & peck through the rest.

f.  Have a huge amount of podcasts (10+), and catch every single episode of all of them (and if that's the case, power to you, and I'm not sure if you are either madly insane, or whether you are geniuses at time management).

I've got /Film, Filmspotting, Kermode, Savage Lovecast, infomanida and The Whiteboard Podcast that I'll pretty much always listen to. This American Life, Real Time with Bill Maher, All Songs Considered and Left Field Cinema are sometimes listens (in order from most regular to least).

Honestly I have a completist problem so I have a lot of podcast I listen to every episode, and then a podcast that I am catching up on (and when I catch up Ill pick up another). Some podcasts look interesting (Marc Maron's WTF for example) but if their entire history isnt there I just dont really try.

Anyways, my regular rotation is:
Filmspotting
IFC News Podcast
Comedy Film Nerds
Doug Loves Movies
The Dork Forest
Pod F. Tompkast
Adam Carolla Podcast
Spider and the Henchman Sports Cast
Daves of Thunder
This Week With Larry Miller
SMovieMakers

Catching up on:
Rich Eisen Podcast (lots of good guests)

Stopped Listening too in the last 6 months or so:
Smodcast (sort of tired of Smith, although I like the extended discussions with filmmakers about movies that arent his)
The FitzDog Podcast (all the episodes I listened to tied into a Stern radio show, so you dont get 90% of the conversation. and it just isnt all that good anyways)
The Film Vault (think the top 5 segment of a filmspotting show but if the hosts were uninteresting and have minimal film knowledge)

At the moment, my regular listening is made up of, in order that I listen to new episodes:

IFC News
Desert Island Discs (this is so good. I wish it had more of a following here)
Filmspotting
Ouch! (BBC disability talk show, currently only bi-monthly)
Gay Pimpin' with Jonny McGovern (thanks to Alex for pointing me in the direction of this one)
Blow Hard (part of the Smodcast Network, hosted by Malcolm Ingram, director of Small Town Gay Bar and friend of Kevin Smith, who sometimes co-hosts, along with a rotating roster. I'm new to this one, but enjoying it)

Other than that, I've listened to all the episodes of Linoleum Knife that exist so far (Alonso Duralde and Dave White talking film), and that's interesting, but we'll see if it starts up again after the break they took for December, and it's definitely more of a review show than criticism as are IFC and Filmspotting.

I've stopped listening to the Scott Mills Daily, which is a best of his daily radio show, because I've been listening on a device that I sync manually, and it's too hard to keep them in order. I've been downloading them, but might stop soon.

Have downloaded all of The Whiteboard Podcast as well, but not listened to all yet (in fact, maybe only three or four, and none since the relaunch as such).

Have occasionally listened to the Creative Screenwriting Podcast, but Jeff Goldsmith can get on my nerves, and I only download it when it's a movie or writer I'm interested in.

Once listened to the /Film After Dark on Synecdoche, New York, which was pretty epic, whilst only scratching the surface of that film.

Can you work and listen to Podcasts at the same time?  I listen to them anytime but work since I can not pay attention to people talking at the same time I am trying to read emails, answer emails, analyze data, work on PowerPoint, etc.  At work I put on music where it is easy to not concentrate and I won't have to rewind and go back to what they hell I ignored while I was concentrating on something else.

I find listening to podcasts, while i'm working helps me concentrate, funny as it may seem. It cuts out a lot of the office chatter, which i'm not really interested in anyway. If I was to listen to music I would get distracted from my work, but listening to podcasts, gives me something to listen to, but is not too intrusive that I cannot concentrate on my work.

I find listening to podcasts, while i'm working helps me concentrate, funny as it may seem. It cuts out a lot of the office chatter, which i'm not really interested in anyway. If I was to listen to music I would get distracted from my work, but listening to podcasts, gives me something to listen to, but is not too intrusive that I cannot concentrate on my work. Podcasts or jazz that's the way to go. Miles Davis 'A Kind Of Blue' or 'Sketches Of Spain' are highly recommended.

I listen to music to cut out the office chatter, mostly due to the group on the cube opposite me that are on the phones all day long due to their job.  I just can't do the podcasts as I can not concentrate on what they are talking about as well as concentrate on my work.  I might just start typing what ever crazy thing Marc Marron is talking about in my email.

But your music choices are spot on... :)

WTF/Marc Maron - Wow...thanks everyone for the recommendation on this podcast!  Just heard the two part Louis CK episode...TOTALLY different than what I expected.  I've known Maron before from some of his standup, and a few Youtube interviews from his Air America show he did (one with Chuck Klosterman is how I initially found out about the guy).  But I did not expect the format of the comedy interviews to be as raw, bare, emotionally honest, forthright, and "walls down", for lack of a better word.  A huge breath of fresh air as far as interview shows go...and here I was thinking this was going to be yet another hipster/way-too-ironic/too-snarky podcast...the surprise in the opposite direction = great.  Was kind of like a Kevin Pollack Chat Show...for comedians...but with a level of emotional honesty that makes it different.

BB6634 - I think you were the one that recommended the Risk podcast a few pages back.  I'm a huge fan of The Moth, SpeakEasy DC, Tales from Lake Wobegon, and recently The Tobolowsky Files, and Risk sounded great, like a dirtier, raunchier, uncut version of all the above.  Downloaded two of them...and have to say, so far I'm a bit disappointed.  But I'm not giving up quite yet...are there are episodes in particular you remember as standouts that you'd recommend trying out?

I never had heard his comedy before or even have heard of him before (nor Louis CK for that fact) but after hearing about his Podcast from enough people around here I decided to listen.  I think they are some of the best, most interesting interviews I have ever listened to

I'm not the only one who thinks that unless they have a good guest on, /Film is about as exciting to listen to as drying paint?

I'd been a steady listener of Filmspotting, and appreciate that the quality and tone has stayed consistent and with minimal snark, and will agree with P. Lerry that /Film is a near waste of time, yet appreciate that their podcast spawned the Tobolowsky Files, which is among the 20 or so I want to listen to as soon as I download it.

For some reason, I had a compulsion to listen to the slate spoiler specials, yet only find the information interesting, not the style or tone of the host.

Can anyone tell me how on earth that Dana Stevens arose to be viewed as an esteemed critic. It seems she views her job as a drudgery without any joy but the joy she gains from disemboweling a majority of films she sees/reviews.

I recall hearing a slate culture gab-fest where she mentioned the Esquire profile of Roger Ebert and the correspondence she had with him. Yet, as much as she admires him, it doesn't seem as she has the same Joie d' vie that he does. I can't believe that she doesn't seem to have nearly the same film literacy as Matty and Adam, nor is she patient with nearly anything, and in the Spoiler Special of Karate Kid, said she hadn't seen the original until before seeing the Jackie Chan version, so she hadn't "Seen Everything Good and Bad" as Ebert advised
The Ebert talk occurs within the first 5 minutes

The  stories from Risk are linked thematically, and one podcast will usually have anywhere from 3 or more stories linked to the theme.  Here are a couple I have enjoyed, either because of the storyteller or stories:

Actress Lilli Taylor's re-accounting of her troubled family in "In Harm's Way";  several stories, specifically  Ophira Eisenberg's , in the "Strange Sex" episode...  The "Revenge" episode.  David Crabb's surprisingly moving story of his friendship with a Texas skinhead as a teen in "Strange Acquaintances"...

The Ethicist
Filmspotting
Hmmm... Kulrich on Science
Philosophy Talk (entertaining and basic talk about philosophical themes, only available on iAmplify)
The Moth
Philosophy Bites
This American Life
60 Second Mind

Podcasts I listen to occasionally:
Brainstuff
Creative Screenwriting
In Our Time with Melvin Bragg
Intelligence Squared (I usually listen to the first half, get the gist of the arguments and give up)
Science Friday
The "Stuff You Should Know" Podcasts (including the original, the history chicks, stuff to blow your mind, brainstuff, and stuff mom never told you.)
Tony Campolo


Podcasts I am working my way through their library:
Freakonomics Radio
RadioLab
Watching the Directors


I gave up on Risk.  It just isn't as interesting as The Moth and it's longer.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: DarkCrystal on January 17, 2011, 02:32:54 AM
Oldkid - What's Watching the Directors?  Don't know that one.

Idea for all we podcasters - So, here we are, on a Filmspotting forum with our very own podcast thread.  That is now...21 pages long.  Pretty awesome, and shows how dedicated many of us are to the wonderful combo of self-education + entertainment that podcasts of all walks of life bring us.

But, given that there are so many awesome suggestions in the 21 page thread...and that it would be INSANE for anyone to actually go through and read the whole thing, why don't we set up a poll?  And I mean, a MEGA-poll.  Maybe a few of us could go through 2-3 pages of the 21 thread pages, compile a giant, alphabetical list of 100 - 150 podcasts that have been mentioned, and we each put in a vote / click / tally for each one we listen to.  If we got 100-300 Filmspotters voting on the mega poll...it would be an amazing way to see:

a.  A clearly marked pecking order of the top non-Filmspotting podcasts on these boards
b.  A logical, easy way to learn about and get into new podcasts...by quick visual glance of a poll, as opposed to sifting through a 21 page thread.

That way, we have a poll for number crunching "amount of listeners" and a place to add new suggestions to the mega list.  And this separate thread for actual podcasting talk or commentary.  

Anyone else with me on this idea?  We could even split it into sections in the mega-poll or chart.  "Top 10 most listened to...film / comedy / philosophy / science / storytelling / literature / sports / photography / language / etc, podcasts."  I'd start this myself right now (an excellent way to procrastinate emailing I need to do for work!) but I have no idea how to set up a poll.  
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: oldkid on January 17, 2011, 02:53:02 AM
A couple takes on an ambitious project of watching all the movies of a director and then talking about them for an hour.  The two segments I really like are when they try to say what distinguishes the director and the "10 quiz"-- where they ask themselves and listeners what the favorite film is, the least favorite film, the most distinctive scene of the director is, and some other questions.  Some interesting answers to the question, "If this director could remake a film or if another director could remake one of their films, what would you choose and why?" 

It's fun and a basic introduction to critiquing cinema, especially popular cinema.

Saltine - Thanks for the advice, but right now the only thing on the bottom right corner of my page that I'm seeing are tabs that read: Reply, Notify, Mark As Unread, Send This Topic, Print.  Am I missing something obvious with the "Add a poll" tab?  Also, I'd be looking to do this in a new thread, not this one.

p.s. Is there a way to add a "tally" type of poll...or a poll where you can vote more than once?  My goal is to have people check off or tally one vote, out of a list of 100 or so, for each podcast they listen to...not just one favorite.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts

OK, I see your screen and mine are different.

You'll go to the board name No Movie Talk Allowed and look at the upper right-hand side.  Post New Poll is there.  Your poll will end up as a new thread in the No Movie Talk Allowed section of the forum so be sure to label it correctly as a poll for other podcasts or whatever.

Yup. That is totally possible DC. It'll be an option when you're setting up the poll.

Max Number of Votes per user, and you can fill in how many.

If anything goes wrong and you can't fix it by editing the poll, a mod can help.

Update - Page 1 of this thread...by itself...has FOUR pages worth (on Microsoft Word) of mentioned podcasts.  Yikes.  So far I've split everything into about 20 categories, and then am just listing podcasts alphabetically into each.  How many CINECAST!ing podcasts are out there?

Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: DarkCrystal on January 18, 2011, 02:39:39 AM
I just created a first version of a new thread titled: "Podcasts - The Mega-list" in the No Movie Talk Allowed section.  Basically, a giant list ordering some of the major podcasts mentioned on here, organized into 25+ categories, and alphabetized within each one.  

I'd say what's on the list, amazingly, is about 1/20th of the podcasts listed on this enormous and ridiculously awesome thread.  But if people are interested to see a giant, easy to understand, organized list of about 200 or so podcasts split into categories, please check the new thread out.  I'll be updating it throughout the week.

The Whiteboard Podcast will return shortly! We have an episode recorded and an idea for next week. However, we need your input! My co-host has recently signed up for Netflix (the instant only version) and we're wondering what good movies are on there that you might like to hear us discuss. We're open to pretty much anything, with the caveat being that my co-host isn't a huge movie buff. He's willing to do subtitles and such but those might wait until he has more time starting at the end of March. So, what do you want us to talk about?

There is a distinct possibility that I will be starting a new podcast soon. This one will be based on books and cohosted by my friend John. We're looking at doing a lot of Murakami and classics and pretty much anything that sparks our interests. Excited? I am.
Sounds fun! I don't know of any other podcasts that discuss books in depth - do you? I liked Mayo's book review podcast, but that's gone, and the New York Times book review is always good, but it covers so many books, you never get much in-depth analysis.

John is a poet and has a creative writing degree. I have a vanilla English degree and we're both quite good at talking about books, if I do say so myself.

I don't know of any good book podcasts. I hope we're the first!

Not yet. He was one of five touring poets in CT. They were picked from schools like Isle and all that jazz and then went around to colleges and read. He's really great and a fantastic thinker. It should be a good show.

Wonderful idea, Junior. I wish you success!

There is the First Tuesday Book Club from ABC Australia.  It's a panel discussion of one or two books a month. It's a video podcast. The panel composition rotates, and the book selections are either classics or very current or in the news.  I find it very enjoyable.

I'd listen to that, not read many classics but have read a lot of Murakami so maybe I will know what you are talking about half the time.

Could I just listen to it, viz. does it translate well as an audio podcast?
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: saltine on February 26, 2011, 08:07:12 PM
There are usually 4 or 5 people talking about the book so if you can follow the different voices, it would be fine as audio only.  The video is very nicely produced.  You might want to try one and see how you like it.

I love First Tuesday Book Club! Guess what this Tuesday is?!?

I've only downloaded the video podcast once directly from their website, and from what I could tell it was basically just the episode as broadcast. But there's very few visual cues that are essential, although it makes some of the banter between hosts more amusing.

Each month they select a current book (last year selections included Freedom and Solar) and someone, either one of the guests or one of the regulars, picks a classic or a favourite to discuss. It's always fun, great discussion, with varying opinions, and I've read some magical choices because of the show, including I-promise-I-won't-spam-you-too-much-more The Transit of Venus.

We're still a bit in development but here's what we're looking like now: a weekly podcast which will alternate between book, movie and other media (every other week will be book and most of the rest will be movie but we're open to doing albums or tv shows occasionally) with a focus on talking about whether the particular work of art should become a part of our modern canon. Since we're American (and white) most of these things will be American based but we're open to doing international media as well. We're going to have two main hosts (me and John) and a rotating third chair. What do you think about all this? Any suggestions?

For our title we're thinking about Canon Fodder or something like that. If you have any clever ideas please let us know.

Ugh, he's the worst. He succeeds in spite of himself. He's always trying to bring himself into the conversation, he's always trying to show how much he knows about the industry and about the history of projects. He asks a lot of reeeally dumb questions. He doesn't follow up with proper questions. The only reason his podcast is good is that he gets good people, and often people who don't get big interviews. Give a writer an hour to talk and they will talk about lots of cool stuff.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts

*shrugs* I don't get the sense he's out of prove anything or fool anyone. He does research to generate out of the ordinary questions. It's something I appreciate about his interviews. He's respectful but not reverential, conversational and not timid, challenging but not arrogant. I think he does a good job.

I think this seems to be a trend now of limiting the old episodes and then offering them up through the iPhone (or Android) app.  Can you download the back episodes directly from the website?  I know it would be a bit painful but you could always pick and choose.

I don't blame them, I know others are trying to find ways to figuring out the best way to make podcasting a successful (financially) broadcasting medium.

Has anyone here ever listened to either The MILFCast or More Than One Lesson?

I was thinking about giving the MILFCast (it's short for Man, I like Films) a try simply because Aiden Redmond, a great movie blogger from Cut The Crap Movie Reviews was on their latest episode. But, the episode description didn't make it sound like this was a podcast that contained a lot of actual movie talk, so I'm still debating.

More Than One Lesson is by Tyler Smith, one of the cohosts of Battleship Pretension. I'm up in the air about this one because as much as I like Battleship Pretension Tyler too often gives up in his arguments and lets others run all over him when they have a differing opening from his. Plus, it's theological lessons taken from films, and I'm not sure if that would appeal to me.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts

I've listened to The MILFcast before. There is some movie talk in there, but there's also a lot of random stuff. I've casted on another podcast with one of the co-hosts, Kai, and he's pretty colorful and energetic so he keeps everything entertaining, but not all that focused. Some love the style, some don't. I just try to enjoy it for what it is.

Just started listening to How Did This Get Made, a podcast about (very) bad movies. It is hosted by Paul Sheer, of MTV's Human Giant, and has various regulars and guests, all taking on infamously terrible movies.  They are relatively new, and the structure is a little shaky, but I think it will get smoother with more episodes.  However, when they are on a tear, such as when they attempt to dissect/understand the existence of Battlefield Earth or Drive Angry,  it's funny as hell.

The podcast is called Cinema on the Road. The basic premise is that we're moving from one country to another each episode, exploring that country's recent output (plus one classic).

The first episode is on Portugal. The films are Our Beloved Month of August (filmspot eligible!) and Aniki Bobo. The episode has some weird sound levels that we're hoping to fix for the next episode, so sorry about that.

We don't have a website yet. Yes, we're working on it. So I only have a link (http://www.mediafire.com/?2xvajmq1rra4l76) for you. Uh, thanks for reading and stuff. Hope you like it. Tell us if it's awful. We'll promptly quit the internet.

I'm also currently wrestling with giving up Comedy Film Nerds.

But, they do have some awesome guests from time to time. Still, as much as I love Jimmy Pardo, Doug Benson or others who guest on there, I don't know if I can keep dealing with Ellwood and Mancini just to get to the good guests.

On one of the recent episodes they started talking about how the Leonard Maltin games go on long after the show has ended sometimes. Not with the audience, but just Doug and the guests keep playing backstage. They also referenced playing the game at Doug's house a lot, or at clubs with Doug. I so would love to be there for some of that, a lot of funny is probably tossed around in those sessions.

You should seek out the "12 Guests of Christmas" episode; exactly what it sounds like: 12 guests in a giant, elimination-style Leonard Maltin Game.

There was also an earlier attempt at something similar last summer: in honor of SCOTT PILGRIM, Doug Benson set up a "T.J. Miller vs. The World" episode, wherein seven audience members (a lá the "seven evil exes") were to combat T.J. Miller in The Leonard Maltin Game. But being that it was T.J. Miller--well, things just fell apart. Made for a damn funny episode, though.

Great, thank you!

Just started listening to Doug Loves Movies yesterday. Very funny. Good Guests. I wish the Leonard Maltin games went on longer.

You should seek out the "12 Guests of Christmas" episode; exactly what it sounds like: 12 guests in a giant, elimination-style Leonard Maltin Game.

There was also an earlier attempt at something similar last summer: in honor of SCOTT PILGRIM, Doug Benson set up a "T.J. Miller vs. The World" episode, wherein seven audience members (a lá the "seven evil exes") were to combat T.J. Miller in The Leonard Maltin Game. But being that it was T.J. Miller--well, things just fell apart. Made for a damn funny episode, though.

Both sound terrific. Thanks for the heads up.

I second the Slate Spoiler Specials - I like Dana Stevens a lot. (I think Adam hinted she'd be guest host on this week's Filmspotting??)

Quote

-The Film Programme
-Watching the Directors
-Watching Theology

I like the host of The Film Programme - can't remember her name off-hand.  Also, the archives of WtD and WT with both Melissa and Joe Johnson are great.

My dream is to get on DLM and play the Maltin game.  I only wish he did more older and/or non-Hollywood stuff, but of course the guests are usually comedians and not nerdy film buffs.

I like Graham Elwood from what I've heard of him on Never Not Funny and other 'casts, but I haven't listened to CFN because the episode descriptions never sound that enticing.

Save your money for next year's CDR auction!

I like my Elwood in very small doses. I'm not sure I can handle a show where he is one of the primary voices.

I really tried to like him, he runs with Benson so I thought I should get him for some reason. But in what I have heard him on- Battleship Pretension, Comedy Film Nerds, Doug Loves Movies- he never does anything for me and is always trampling over the funny that other people are trying to create. Maybe he hits it out of the park on Never Not Funny, but I've never heard an episode of that.

I've stayed away from Never Not Funny because I believe it is a podcast you have to pay for. As much as I absolutely love Pardo, I can't afford paying for a podcast on a regular basis at this point in time. In the future I want to check it out though.

I love Kermode and Mayo, Kermode may be my favorite critic ad Mayo is an outstanding radio personality. But, I'm really getting tired of Kermode overdoing every single impression he can muster. I want to listen to his reviews, even when I disagree with him I like hearing his opinion. However, I had to fast forward past his Sucker Punch review the other day because his decision to make fun of Zack Snyder's name over and over again was so annoying. Am I alone in thinking this way?

Also, I listened to the latest Doug Loves Movies, and man, Rainn Wilson is kind of a joke killer. He can be funny, but he was so at odds with everyone else on the show that he broke the flow any time he talked. Maybe that's his schtick, but it didn't work for me.

Agreed.  And Walking the Room.  CDR, NNF and WTR are the most consistently hilarious podcasts I've heard.

1. Pod F. Tompkast - Honestly, PFT is my favorite comedian in the world, but this format just doesn't do it for me.  "The Great Undiscovered Project" falls flat every time (although his impressions work brilliantly in the context of CDR), and the conversations with Jen Kirkman are usually kinda dull.  The best parts are his ramblings between segments, and occasionally a great bit from one of his live shows.

2. Pop My Culture - Never heard of it, doesn't sound like my kind of thing.

3. The Nerdist - Subscriber, just recently got completely caught up.  The "hostful" episodes are usually entertaining.  The guest episodes depend entirely on the guest.  I guess I'm on board with its inclusion.

4. How Was Your Week? - Never heard of it, sounds like it has potential.

5. WTF - It's a GREAT podcast, but I wouldn't rank it among the funniest.

6. The Smartest Man in the World - I'm a subscriber and I like it, but Proops' smugness can be very grating.

7. Uhh Yeah Dude - Never heard of it, might check it out

8. Hype Men - Never heard of it, not interested

9. Jordan Jesse Go - I keep hearing about how great this is, still need to check it out.  Anyone recommend a good intro episode?

10. Comedy Death-Ray Radio - As I said above, consistently hilarious.  My #1.


Listening to the latest WTF right now.  It reaffirms my belief that Sarah Vowell is one of the most annoying people in the universe.

9. Jordan Jesse Go - I keep hearing about how great this is, still need to check it out.  Anyone recommend a good intro episode?

1. The Kirkman conversations have been pretty great the last few episodes. As for the format, it's so different from everything else that I really like it. Though the clips from the live show just make me mad that I haven't gotten to see it in person yet.

4. Julie Klausner is very funny. She's had guests that I haven't heard on other shows, always a plus when there's so much overlap across all the comedy podcasts I listen to. Plus it's great to have a podcast that isn't just a bunch of dudes.

5. WTF is one of my favorites but I also wouldn't consider it "funniest"

6. Haven't gotten around to listening to it yet, though I am a subscriber.

9. Jordan, Jesse GO! has been a long-time favorite. I'd say find an episode with a guest you like and take it from there. Chris Fairbanks is one of my favorite guests (I think he's made the most appearances)

Of course the biggest omission is Best Show Gems. And Superego, which is hilariously brilliant. I'm also surprised that NNF didn't make the cut since it's pretty much the precursor to most of these shows.

(http://i56.tinypic.com/2e30l77.png)The 1st Episode of the Canadian Film Podcast (http://i56.tinypic.com/2e30l77.png)

Notes to myself:
-The music is a bit too loud when compared to the talking.
-Audio is surprisingly good considering it was recorded off Skype. It skips a few times though.
-We too often get derailed, I blame Ethan and his dog.
-I say umm... too much.
-The show needs to be better structured, I ramble too much.
-I should take better notes after watching the film.
These will all be improved in the second episode.

Hey Guys,

Been listening to Filmspotting for quite sometime. Dig the show. Figured some of you guys might want to check out this comedy podcast I am apart of, first off, let state that I have not used the forums here yet and I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong area or if me plugging anything offends anyone, I just thought I'd share.

Our panel and host include an array of NYC improv comedians (The Upright Citizens Brigade), Comedy Writers, Critical Film Studies graduates, and even an Online Film Critic who is beloved by Roger Ebert (we hardly believe it either.) We joke about the world's worst and explore the 'world' of a bad movie. We get into character motivations, absurdity in plots, and go into interesting, funny, and informative tangents. In order for us to talk and riff on these movies, we do spoil parts (thought I'd throw a warning out there.)

Feel free to check out our reviews and ratings on iTunes to see if it's for you:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/we-hate-movies/id405271228 (http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/we-hate-movies/id405271228)

Our main site is:
http://www.WHMPodcast.com (http://www.WHMPodcast.com)

For obscure fans, we've got a new side show coming up in which every month we talk about an extremely rare horror or exploitation type film. Our first episode of it will be out in about a week and the topic is a very seldom seen Exploitation flick from '78.

Since summer is upon us, we're going to be doing Blockbusters gone bad. Our first episode in that will drop on Tuesday. It's a franchise. And it's not modern (we don't joke about movies in the theaters, we try to dig up the old stuff.)

Thanks everyone and honestly sorry if I'm not supposed to plug, I read the FAQ and didn't notice anything restricting it. Hope to see you all around the forums!

Thanks!

Too true, but you forgot to mention that the "COMEDY" part of the title is also eliminated by virtue of the show being sorely unfunny. Adam & Matty make me laugh harder and with more frequency in an average outtake of FILMSPOTTING than I have in all the COMEDY FILM NERDS episodes to which I have listened, combined. Good guests be damned, you could not pay me to subject myself to any more of that unfunny, uninformed, uninspired drivel. "'Wasn't Jesse Eisenberg in THE SQUID & THE WHALE?' 'No.'" Ugh.

On a brighter note, has anyone been listening to the Katey Rich/Dave Gonzalez/David Ehrlich/Matt Patches podcast, OPERATION KINO/KINO KATEY? I've only listened to one episode, but so far, I really like the mix of personalities...even if those personalities tend to all jump out at once, resulting in a steady diet of "Sorry, go ahead."

Like 10 episodes ago they had a guest on (dont remember who) that is in an upcoming flick with Jesse Eisenberg. The CFN hosts had frequently piled on Eisenberg before the Social Network with that ridiculous "poor man's Michael Cera" criticsm. They took that back due to the praise he was starting to recieve.
When apoligizing, they said something to the effect of "Well to be fair to us though he was in a lot of bad stuff like Adventureland and that movie with the evil twin". I can only assume they meant Youth in Revolt, the Michael Cera movie. That would have been a funny joke if they were joking, instead of just being unknowlegable.

Yeah, that was the Eddie Pepitone episode--my final one--and the same episode we both referenced earlier: not knowing the identity of David Gordon Green, denying that Jesse Eisenberg was in THE SQUID & THE WHALE.

A few weeks in Podcast listening. I have been testing out some new podcasts this last week, and enjoying some personal favourites. so I thought I might put some podcast micro reviews up, for the new ones.

New Podcasts (well to me)

Movie B.S. General current release movie talk.
Last 3 episodes listened to (up to Ep. 62), started out well, but ep. 62 killed it for me. The 2 host has some ok banter, but it is too patchy and the were a few cringing moments in 62 (where one of the hosts shows complete distain for interviewing 2 of the children of the other host) that left me cold on the whole podcast. Unsubscribed

Doug Loves Movies Comedy show featuring the Lenard Maltin game.
I have listened 6 episodes over the last 2 weeks. I was really enjoying it, until the most recent episode, much of which was spent talking about poker. What a boring episode. I will still be continuing with the podcast, but I feel my enjoyment for the show will wane within a couple of months. Subscribe

Outside the Cinema Talk about genre cinema old and new, usually with a guest from the genre film area.
Enjoying this, a look at movies that I have not found many podcasts talk about. The banter is good. Subscribe

Alternative Cinema Podcast Talk about genre cinema, seems to be released by a distributor of such films.
Unsure about this one, it only comes out once a month and the only episode I have listened to dragged, will need to try the next episode (which is waiting in my queue). Subscribe

Behind the Screened Door General current release movie talk.

FatFreeFilm Interviews with film makers
Looking at the old episodes this seems to have been a regalur podcast about 4 years ago, then it dried up, but it is back, sporradically. I pulled up some of the old interviews, including Bruce Campbell, really good. The best one was the most recent ep with Taki Oldham. Really recommend this one if you are interested in film production. Subscribe

Film Jive General current release movie talk.
Enjoyable banter with 2 male hosts. Subscribe

How did this Get Made Talk about 1 bad film
3 or 4 mixed gender group talk about a old or new "bad" film. It is ok, but usually low on my listening list. Subscribe

Jonathan Dawson's Film Reviews Current release film reviews
This is an ABC radio Tasmania film reviewer, short episodes (about 15 minutes). Has some interesting things to say. Subscribe

MacGuffin Matinee General current release movie talk.
Not bad. 2 males talking about films, nothing standout. Subscribe

The Not Just New Movies Podcast Specific film reviews, old and new
Listened to 1 episode, comparing the original Italian Job with the recent version. One of them did not like the ending of the first one. Generally did not exhibit a high level of film knowledge. Unsubscribed

Yeah, It's That Bad Talk about 1 bad film.
Did not like this one, listened to a few episodes, but it was just lots of kicking the fallen film. Unsubscribed

A few weeks in Podcast listening. I have been testing out some new podcasts this last week, and enjoying some personal favourites. so I thought I might put some podcast micro reviews up, for the new ones.

New Podcasts (well to me)

Doug Loves Movies Comedy show featuring the Lenard Maltin game.
I have listened 6 episodes over the last 2 weeks. I was really enjoying it, until the most recent episode, much of which was spent talking about poker. What a boring episode. I will still be continuing with the podcast, but I feel my enjoyment for the show will wane within a couple of months. Subscribe



Dave Necrobumper - Gave a chuckle when I read this, as the episode of Doug Loves Movies you referenced not liking (with Kevin Pollack, Sam Levine, and Ali Nejad) is one of my favorite all-time Doug Loves Movies.  Definitely can see why it would be boring if you don't play poker, but for poker fans, Kevin Pollack Chat Show fans (which is why the K Pollack/Sam Levine combo was on, they do a great interview podcast), and especially those that enjoy the very rewatchable cable flick Rounders...this episode is pretty hilarious.

Hey guys, the new episode of "WE HATE MOVIES!" is up!

Episode 15 - Boys and Girls!
http://www.whmpodcast.com/2011/06/episode-15-boys-and-girls.html (http://www.whmpodcast.com/2011/06/episode-15-boys-and-girls.html)

In this week's episode, the Gang hits rock bottom as they go back to college to hang out with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Jason Biggs in 2000's comedic flop, Boys and Girls. Why is Freddie so disinterested in Claire Forlani? Can Jason Biggs find one girl to talk to him without turning to gross-out humor? And whatever happened to Heather Donahue?

Boys and Girls stars Freddie Prinze Jr., Claire Forlani, Jason Biggs & Amanda Detmer; directed by Robert Iscove.

One advantage of the studio episodes is there's no time constraints, so it often leads to longer matches of the Leonard Maltin game.

Well more searching through iTunes for new podcasts to try out. So I will try to put together another set of mirco reviews next week. Getting time to watch movies is hard (I like to be able to watch in one hit), but finding time at work to listen to podcasts is not.

@EricWHMPodcast I have downloaded your latest.

@roujin I have downloaded ep.1 of your podcast.

@'Noke. I think the studio ones lack the life of the live episodes. The podcast rarely has had much to say (well in 6 eps), but it is the way they say so little that has my attention. This is also why I think my interest will wane over time.

@MartinTeller. Longer Maltin games is good.

@DarkCrystal. I can see how one who is interested in poker would find the ep good.

I'm a big fan of DLM and that episode was pretty not good. Pollack had zero energy and the poker focus did do a damn thing for me because I've heard that Rounders rant from him before. DLM mostly lives and dies based on the guests but the guests are so consistently great that the rare clunker doesn't really bother me.

A new "WE HATE MOVIES" side show is up! "A Side Order of Sleaze," in which we examine Exploitation, Horror, and all kinds of sleazy cinema. Get ready for this to drop on off-weeks every once and a while!

A Side Order of Sleaze - The Young Cycle Girls!

On the first ever "A Side Order of Sleaze" side bar, the Gang hits the road as they discuss 1978's biker-chick-exploitation-flick, The Young Cycle Girls a.k.a. Cycle Vixens. This new side bar series from the We Hate Movies! team will delve into the seedier side of filmmaking, showcasing lost, forgotten and non-existent films that could be described as, how we put it, the "black-tar heroin of cinema".

The Young Cycle Girls stars Loraine Ferris, Daphne Lawrence & Deborah Marcus; directed by Peter Perry Jr.

I didn't, because I wasn't expecting to be sitting very close. A member of my group was actually picked by Bill Simmons because he shouted "Kobe and Kareem suck" (you'll hear Doug tell him to be quiet several times throughout). It was a fun show. The UCB is a lot smaller than I was expecting.

Serious film fans should check out The Macguffin Men.  It's good because it's not just thumbs up/down reviews.  They do a lot more analysis of the films, why they're popular, why they're made a certain way.  They also just do analysis of Hollywood and pop culture in general.  Definitely worth a listen

Has anyone noticed how much podcasters complain about being criticized on the internet?  It's an interesting phenomenon.  The Nerdist is the worst about it, going beyond the usual "we do this for free" and "if you don't like it, don't listen" to "you have no life". 

It's really weird how the Nerdist seems more and more to be about protecting Matt Mira's fragile self-esteem and convincing him to do stand-up even though he's painfully unfunny.

Heh, wonder if my iTunes review was one of the ones that ticked them off. What's really bad is that they will ask people to not rate them if they don't like them, because apparently even if someone thinks their podcast is only worth a 1 it's very petty to actually hive them a one.

Hey guys, pretty sweet conversation on Doug Loves Movies going on. Hope this isn't butting in, but I think you all might like this podcast I'm on. As far as entertainment credentials go (which seems to be what sells podcasts) I used to work on Late Night with Conan O'Brien til most recently producing for Lifetime Television (two comedy dynasties.)

So here we go: WE HATE MOVIES! Episode 16: FUZZ (1972)!

In this week's episode, the Gang heads back to the 70's to go undercover with Burt Reynolds and Raquel Welch in 1972's Boston-set, snoozefest, Fuzz! Does Burt Reynolds make a convincing nun? Is this a comedy? And couldn't they have named Yul Brynner's character something a bit more...fitting?

Fuzz stars Burt Reynolds, Raquel Welch, Tom Skerritt, Jack Weston & Yul Brynner; directed by Richard A. Colla.

Actually, if you looked through my other posts I have contributed here, albeit not everyday. I have chimed in on several discussions on film. Take the Leni Riefenstahl thread for example. I apologize if anyone found this intrusive, but at the end of the day I did make a plug post for my podcast specifically (did not think it was an offense) and it was merged into this thread by a moderator. Not me. I thought this was the appropriate place to discuss another podcast (even if it was my own.) I apologize for not posting daily contributions. I will cease and desist. I had thought the Filmspotting community was more accepting as I have had a few iTunes reviews mention my podcast as being "the second best film related podcast next to Filmspotting." Their words, not mine. Naturally, from that attention, I came here and decided to plug it to you guys since I have other listeners who enjoy Filmspotting. Not to annoy you, not to piss you off, but to simply entertain you for free. I love film and I love film communities. This is a small home-grown podcast in NYC with UCB comedians, an actual film critic, and a whole lot of heart. We've even potentially booked our first celebrity guest for the Fall. Again, I apologize and I will no longer post in these forums. Thank you for your time and concern.

Listened to the first two episodes of "Mike and Tom Eat Snacks" today.  It's pretty much "The Sporkful" meets "Walking the Room".  In fact, Tom Cavanagh is a dead ringer for Greg Behrendt, in both his voice and his manner of speaking.  I'm inclined to say he's actually ripping off Behrendt and wouldn't be surprised if this podcast came about after he listened to a lot of WTR.  Granted, two people can have a similar comic style, but it's really too close for comfort.

However, WTR is my favorite podcast, so I don't mind something else in the same style as long as it's funny, and M&TES is pretty funny.  And I love talk about snacks.  Fortunately, Michael Ian Black has his own comic sensibility and doesn't need to borrow from Dave Anthony.

iTunes: Dark Discussions Podcast

Episode 008 - Let Me In

(http://www.darkdiscussions.com/Graphics/episode_pics/Mast_Episode008.jpg)

During the year of our Lord 2004, the debut novel of an unknown author from Sweden changed the mythos of one of the most mysterious and dangerous monsters of horror legend. Prior to its release, vampires had slowly become the stock character of numerous romantic and teenage horror books and films. However this original take on the creature of the night stood out from the more common romantic view of the vampire.

When John Ajvide Lindqvist saw his novel Let the Right One In published within his home country, it immediately landed an audience and became a best seller. Almost without delay scores of movie producers throughout Sweden battled for the film rights to this original and chilling work of fiction. Four years later the Swedish language film with its screenplay written by Lindqvist made its debut and the story suddenly became an international sensation. A second adaption entitled Let Me In was made in 2010 to almost as much critical acclaim.

Philip takes the mic and goes deep into why this story, both book and films, has had such an impact on its readers and viewership. With the melancholy sadness of the lead protagonists to the socially disenfranchised supporting characters, the story may be much more than a standard horror tale. A vampire may haunt this small suburban town but one wonders if the real horror presented is actually social inequity, human nature, mental illness, and the struggle with daily life.

As a (mostly formerly) big professional wrestling fan, I'm finding myself addicted to the "Art of Wrestling" podcast.  Professional wrestler Colt Cabana sits down with other wrestlers and chats for 30-45 minutes about life on the road, training and backstage stories.  Colt is an independent wrestler, so most of his guests aren't household names but have fascinating stories nonetheless.

Not sure how it would play to somebody who has no interest in professional wrestling, but if you've ever had a passing interest and/or enjoy 'behind the curtain' conversations I'd recommend it.

Listened to The Mental Illness Happy Hour (http://mentalpod.com) for the first time last night. It's hosted by comedian Paul Gilmartin and focuses on the idea that "you are not alone." I found it to be gentle and successful in its endeavor. I listened to Episode 16 with Danielle Koenig (she writes on Fashion Police). She talked about depression, anxieties, and her brother Andrew's suicide. Gilmartin seemed like a compassionate host. I'm not sure that this will become a go-to funtimes podcast, but it's healthy to hear how other people address their mental needs and move forward in their lives.

Well, don't tease us like that, what did they say?

The usual about pretentiousness and the podcast being too stuffy, etc.. The funny thing is I'm beginning to think I would use some of that to describe Double Feature, their films may be more cult, but it doesn't mean they aren't just as dismissive and stuffy in the way they talk about film.

The hosts of Double Feature apparently have a lot of issues with the Filmspotting podcast. My own issues aside, complaining about another podcast is not a way to get me to keep listening to your show. While I have been liking the variety in the movies they discuss little shots like that are not marks towards me continuing to listen.

Quite frankly, those guys are total assholes who rarely if ever properly elaborate on why they like what they like, and are far too quick to simply dismiss what they don't like. Their review of The Prestige is a good example of this if my memory serves. That one was also especially annoying because they seemed to make their atheism a part of the review by dismissing the "magic" that happens in the film as stupid without eer attempting to engage with it and figure out why it's there. That aspect of the movie might be a problem for them, but just making the objective statement that its stupid and then moving on is terrible criticism.

Then again, I might be remembering that review completely wrong.

I was wondering if I had missed something. I generally like Double Feature Podcast because they balance my highbrow podcasts like Filmspotting (classy) and Left Field Cinema (Snobby) with genre stuff. Bill, you got me into Sound on Sight. I disagree with them a lot, but they talk about stuff nobody else is covering. That's why I also listened to Double Feature. I can even ignore the unnecessary language and religious sidebars to get what I want from the show.

The first attack I noticed was during Mary & Max/The Killing. They didn't say anything specific, just a throwaway like "not like Filmspotting." I was actually happy to hear the shout out. Then in their Season end wrap up last week they made about 4 or 5 completely unnecessary snide remarks about how they don't want to be seen as a Filmspotting type podcast. Didn't need to say it, didn't have to mention it, and don't ever have to worry about it. They should just work on making their own show better cause it has good qualities (and I especially enjoy their killapaloozas) there's plenty of room for improvement.

I think Double Feature has a lot of potential and I like it for the same reasons you do, the variety. But their politicizing and religious rhetoric has become too much, and I found the shots at Filmspotting to be really low. I would like to stick with the show, but the last few weeks have really soured me on it and led to me unsubscribing.

I may get to one of them soon.  I've haven't written a review for A Damn Movie Podcast yet, but when I do it will be glowing, and they offer a lot of variety in the films they cover, albeit not as much as Double Feature, although I can't recall if you listened to them and didn't like them. There are a few others that I'm trying to get a better feel for before I recommend or don't recommend them.

*Highfalutin way of saying that they've used a couple of my voicemails (including my dead-on impression of Gerard-Butler-With-A-Cold and my amazing one-man reenactment of THE HAPPENING).

Guest-Specific
The Nerdist
Who Charted?

I've enjoyed every episode of Who Charted... sometimes the guests aren't that hot, but Howard and Kulap are so awesome together.  As for The Nerdist, I totally agree.  More and more these days I find myself deleting the episode because I don't care about the guest.  And the "hostful" episodes just keep getting worse.  I understand their loyalty to Matt Mira, but man, he consistently sucks the comedy out of everything.  I'm sick to death of his actual-whining-disguised-as-mock-whining.  I'm not the most confident, naturally funny guy either... THAT'S WHY I DON'T TRY TO DO A PODCAST.


Out-Of-The-Loop (But Still Great)
Comedy Bang-Bang (née Death-Ray)
Walking the Room

My two favorites!  Admittedly, CBB occasionally delivers a less-than-stellar episode, but that's maybe 1 out of 20 and they're still worth listening to.

And speaking of WTR, I accused MATES of sounding a little too much like them.  Now that I'm 10 episodes in, it seems like they've developed more of their own style, and Tom sounds a lot less like a Greg Behrendt imitator.  I'm enjoying it a lot.

Howard and Kulap are so awesome together.

I could not agree more. (I've actually developed somewhat of a crush--not so much on them, but on their chemistry.) When I say "guest-specific" regarding this show, it's more about guests I can tolerate than those that I actively like. But I'd never miss an episode if they had no guests at all.

I'm skeptical of this "snackcast", but I'll give it a shot. For you, Martin. For you.

I don't know if this hurts or helps, but I should say that a lot of the podcast is riffing on tangents.  The Cheez-Its episode includes maybe 5 minutes of actual talk about Cheez-Its.

Just for fun, running down the list of my current subscriptions, roughly from best to worst:


Walking the Room - Consistently hilarious, Greg and Dave have the best comic chemistry around, building their own language ("hobotang", "cuddlahs", "crickets") and always have great stories.  Great either on their own or with a like-minded guest. 

Comedy Bang Bang - Once in a while there will be a dud guest or a premise that falls flat (I almost never enjoy the "What Am I Thinking?" game, for example) but when it hits, it hits harder than anything out there.  Sometimes reaches uncharted areas of absurdism.

Never Not Funny - I've just begun season 5, so I still have a lot of catching up to do.  It's really amazing to see Matt Belknap's growth as a comedic voice, and he often delivers some of the most hilarious one-liners.

Who Charted? - As discussed above.  To be honest, I don't care much about the charts, but the craziest stuff comes out of Howard Kremer's mouth, and Kulap's delighted reactions are infectious.  Have a summah!

The Pod F. Tompkast - The segments are hit-or-miss, but it's worth it just for PFT's riffing between them.

Doug Loves Movies - Another guest-dependent show.  Count me among those spazzy nerds who can't stand it when the guests don't know how to play the Leonard Maltin Game.

WTF with Marc Maron - Again, depends on the guests.  Very good about 75-80% of the time.

Filmspotting - The reason we're all here!  I'll usually skip the current review portion if it's a movie I don't care about, but love the top 5's and marathons.

Mike and Tom Eat Snacks - I've said enough about this already.

TOFOP - Discovered via Wil Anderson's appearances on WTR.  I'm only a few episodes into it so far, but I enjoy their casual discussions of whatever strikes their fancy.  Occasionally a little too Australia-specific, but not as often as you'd expect.

Affirmation Nation with Bob Ducca - The Ducca character works better when he's bouncing off Aukerman, but these bite-sized morsels are amusing, if not LOL funny.

The Sporkful - Depends on the topic.  Sometimes I feel like one of them will take a contrary position just for the sake of arguing, but I enjoy their discussions about the minutae of food.

The Smartest Man in the World - Greg Proops is a smart guy and often funny, but his effete smarminess gets old fast.  I hate to throw this word around, but he does come off as rather pretentious.  And yet, I still listen to every episode, so he must be doing something right.

The Apple Sisters - I don't know if this is going to have much staying power, it's pretty much variations on the same jokes over and over, but so far it's been funny.

The Nerdist - Discussed already... on the verge of unsubscribing.

Eardrop - Great concept, ruined by lack of participation.  On the rare occasion there's a new episode, it's either Doug Benson promoting a show or Rory Scoville's not-even-funny-the-first-time "Airport Sounds".  I still subscribe because it's rarely more than a minute of my day, but what a waste of potential.

Thrilling Adventure Hour - I only listen when PFT participates.

Out of the Past - As a noir fan, I should love this.  But it's way too academic for my tastes.  I'm somewhat disappointed in myself, I guess, but what I want is more fanboy gushing, less critical analysis.



I'm sure I've forgotten one or two.

I've been loving Linoleum Knife, hosted by Alonso Duralde and Dave White, which is another film review show. They try to cover all the new releases each week, and review them in a manner that is nowhere near as thorough as Filmspotting, but what makes it great (for me) is that it's basically the two of them bickering for an hour. The two have been a couple for something like 15 years, and the dynamic they have is what makes the show a joy to listen to. Well, along with all the insane cult references. This week's episode featured a solid five minute diversion dedicated to the Swedish Pippi Longstockings.

Yep.

Comedy and Everything Else - There's a reason I forgot this one.  It would be right at the bottom of my list.  I only d/l the episode if the guest is someone I really like, and that's pretty rare nowadays.  With Todd Glass having long since left the show, it's just Jimmy Dore's underinformed political rants and terrible jokes, backed up by Stef's brief syncophantic comments.  And her "mock sincerity" routine is never funny.  Nothing on this show is funny anymore.

Professor Blastoff - This would rank somewhere around the middle of the bottom half of my list.  It's not tremendously funny, and it's definitely not informative (nor does it pretend to be).  But I like Tig Notaro, and I like just listening to these guys shoot the shit about things they don't really know much about.  I dunno, there's probably a hundred shows exactly like it, but I like this one because it's got Tig.

Going on vacation until August 3rd so releasing Episode 011 Wednesday morning July 27th so look for it in the morning. The 2nd of a 3 part arc of the Planet of the Apes and the August 11th release of the new film, Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

http://www.darkdiscussions.com (http://www.darkdiscussions.com)
darkdiscussions@aol.com
iTunes: Dark Discussions Podcast

Episode 011 - The Planet of the Apes Retrospective Part 2

(http://www.darkdiscussions.com/Graphics/episode_pics/Mast_Episode011.jpg)

With the legacy of the Planet of the Apes and its sequel behind them, an idea came about that would lead to a three story arc to round out the now classic franchise. With this in mind, Pierre Boulle’s novel The Planet of the Apes was front and center once again where the source material was mined to create a new and compelling arc that took the original novel and reversed the human and ape character roles for the upcoming films.

The intelligent apes, Cornelius and Zira, take the lead in the first of the three films, Escape from the Planet of the Apes. Through the physics of space and time, they appear on modern day Earth where they at first are beloved as a novelty yet soon such feelings sour as the government learns that the future of the human race may result in slavery and domination by intelligent apes. In the next film, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar, the child of Cornelius and Zira, grows up to lead an army of slave apes in rebellion against man and his suppressing ways. Rounding up the franchise is The Battle for the Planet of the Apes, where Caesar tries to create a society in which both man and ape can live peacefully as equals. However with struggles brewing within the ape community and from humans that have distanced themselves from such a society, Caesar’s visionary hopes could possibly be dashed.

Philip and Mike discuss the final three films within the original franchise. Such topics as race relations, human rights, immigration, animal compassion, and modernization are thrashed out. With the scientific understanding that the wild ape has violent streaks and will also turn upon their own, do these films reflect the nation state where one unjust dictator is removed for a better life of its people only to be replaced by someone more wicked? With the ambiguous nature of the antagonists within these films, one may wonder whether one man’s belief system may be nothing more than that specific man’s perspective.

So, I haven't posted since I was booed off the boards. I just checked back, saw people plugging, so if you can handle it I'm going to do it once more because I think this is a great episode you guys would LOVE.

http://www.whmpodcast.com/2011/07/episode-18-captain-america.html (http://www.whmpodcast.com/2011/07/episode-18-captain-america.html)

This episode we cover "Captain America" (1990):
In this week's episode, the Gang hides out in an Italian castle with the pussified Captain America and the not-so-red Red Skull in 1990's pathetic attempt at a superhero movie, Captain America! Why does the Sentinel of Liberty need to feign car sickness? Is Red Skull cheap for hiring his daughter as a henchman? Most importantly, did Stan Lee really think this was a good movie?

Captain America stars Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Scott Paulin & Ned Beatty; directed by Albert Pyun.

Our show was recently reviewed here:
http://thepodcastplace.com/we-hate-movies/ (http://thepodcastplace.com/we-hate-movies/)
"The members of the cast, Andrew Jupin, Eric Szyszka, Stephen Sajdak & Chris Cabin all seem to have a wonderful sense of humor as they talk cinema and had me laughing many times. I listened to the two-part episode featuring Superman 3 and Superman 4."
We were also reviewed on Podcast Squared:

Can I give a suggestion.  I listened to the first one but do not remember how the sound was but have saved the rest since then.  I started to listen to the Japan one but stopped it as I want to watch Norwegian Wood first (one of my favorite books).  But from the few minutes I listened to, it sounds like I hear roujin in one ear and then worm in the other ear.  Is it possible to just do in mono with the voices in both ears? Or is it just me that had this issue? 

Sometimes I will listen to podcasts with only one ear piece and I would hate to miss roujin as I would rather hear worm;)

I wish the sound was mono also. I prefer to use one ear piece.

Awww, thank you all for listening.
Am pretty sure we can make it mono again. We switched to this because the first episode in mono sounded pretty terrible with widely varying audio levels. But we should be able to figure it out now.

Two film critics going by Schmoes Know were pretty funny on the Adam Carolla podcast so I thought Id check out their show.

Basically all the same complaints  i have about the content on comedy film nerds, but at least its delivered in a considerably less spastic manner.

and to reiterate:
Star Wars discussion: Film Nerdy
Discussion of a wide breadth of movies: Film Nerdy

I'm tired of the interconnectedness of podcasts. It's like the hosts just circulate as guests on each others' shows. It's part of what made me lose interest in Doug Loves Movies. Hell, I was sick of Paul Sheer before he even started a podcast because of all his appearances elsewhere. Blah.

Ive been done with listening to comedians talk movies for awhile now. I find myself get annoyed much more often than I find myself laughing. Ive enver really understood the appeal of DLM. I think the last episode I listened to was 20 minutes of Yogi Bear talk with TJ Miller then 30 minutes of a game only half the guests understood. Probably listened to a half dozen others before and it was basically the same.

I tried to listen to a few movie podcasts for the entertainment value but they miss the one purpose I want to listen to them which is to find films that may be interesting to watch.  For example, I listened to a couple episodes of "Why did they make this" (or something like that). While I found the discussion amusing, it doesn't make me want to watch anything they talk about.

If you approach DLM as a podcast about movies, you'll probably end up frustrated.  It's a comedy podcast.  It's mostly just a venue for people to be funny.  I admit people not getting the rules of Maltin can be annoying, but if you don't take it too seriously, it can be funny.  If you do take it too seriously, you end up like Samm Levine and everyone hates you.

I've also noticed the severe cross-pollination of comedy podcasts, with all of them being different configurations of Benson Tompkins Maron Hardwick Aukerman Kroll Sklar Pardo Scheer Kremer Besser and so forth.  But screw it, these are funny people.  It's not like they're doing the same material or repeating themselves all the time.  If you don't like a particular guest, just skip that episode.

Anyone else listening to Earwolf Challenge?  I'm really enjoying it (although I don't know how "F+" have dodged a bullet for so long, their podcast is awful and stupid).

If the subject doesnt work as a through line, the jokes dont really land as well.

I honestly get more laughs out of the things the Filmspotting hosts say than I do from any of the movie podcasts from comedians (DLM, CFN, How Did this Get Made). The lamest of jokes can be funnier to me than a terrific joke by a comedian as good as Benson, when it is in a solid context.

I went to the sight to try and figure out when he left. His final post (http://www.soundonsight.org/an-open-letter-to-the-internet-im-sorry-we-dont-like-the-same-movies-2/) is strange. It's called "An Open Letter to the Internet: I’m Sorry We Don’t Like The Same Movies" and reinforces what I didn't like about him on the podcast. I don't know if this is his last post because they got rid of him, or if it just reads that way.

itunes subscription: Dark Discussions Podcast

Episode 014 - Bits, Pieces, and Body Parts Volume 1

(http://www.darkdiscussions.com/Graphics/episode_pics/Mast_Episode014.jpg)

Dark Discussions does its first non-topical podcast. Though no specific theme is discussed, Gordon and Philip do a 360° roundabout through horror, pulp, and genre. On location at the cinema to see Final Destination 5 in 3D, various films are discussed including the Patrick Lussier/Todd Farmer productions of Drive Angry and My Bloody Valentine 3D. With horror on our hosts’ minds, the After Dark Horrorfest 8 Films to Die For yearly releases are focused on including some specific titles as The Hamiltons, Mulberry Street, and Unrest. Not to be left behind, superhero films such as Kick Ass enter the conversation but more importantly Philip and Gordon give their opinion on Anne Hathaway’s turn as the Cat Woman in the upcoming Christopher Nolan Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises. To round up the discussion prior to the viewing of Final Destination 5, our hosts discuss the novels they have been reading including Jonathan Maberry’s Dragon Factory, Ben Tripp’s Rise Again, Dan Simmons’ Flashback, Clive Barker’s Mister B. Gone, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child’s novels Gideon’s Sword, Blasphemy, and the Agent Pendergast novel Cold Vengeance, among others.

Returning after the film, Gordon and Philip give their spoiler free review on Final Destination 5, highly recommending all horror fans to get to the theater before the film leaves its 3D presentation behind. One thing however, more Tony Todd!

To finish up, news and more news takes the forefront. The upcoming remakes of Conan the Barbarian, Fright Night, and the Zack Snyder Superman film Man of Steel are highly anticipated but will they be successful? Dark Discussions talks about the new Lois Lane and who they would have loved to have seen in the role; other than Amy Addams what about Emily Blunt, Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman, Megan Fox, or even Clare Grant? What happened to Frank Darabont and the Walking Dead? Stephen King’s Dark Tower film adaption is shut down. Can A Serbian Film actually be released in North American theaters? Would Conan be better off as a series like the fantastic Lucy Lawless show Spartacus? Why did Guillermo Del Toro walk away from an adaption of H. P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness? Did one of our favorite characters in True Blood get killed off? Enter within, faithful listeners, into our dark discussion and find out all that awaits.

I started listening to Sound on Sight only about a year ago, last summer-ish, and Al left soon after I discovered the show, so I never heard him much, but I have to agree with froham and ISO, of all the hosts (co-hosts/guest hosts, whatever) he was my least favourite essentially and unfortunately because he came across as a bit of an ass.

I decided to just cut out nearly all episodes during Al's run and get to the more recent stuff quicker. I did listen to an episode on offbeat westerns because they were discussing El Topo (* * * *) and Blueberry (* *), and there was Al, "It was terrible, that's why I liked it."

Another thing I just remembered, you mentioned wanting to seek out other Korean cinema from early on towards the end of your podcast.  I haven't seen many but did see a restored version of the 1960 Housemaid last year at a film society showing:

(http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/img/art/0904/090409_p9_jeonju4.jpg)

It is worth checking out.  I am not sure if they meant it to have as much humor as the crowd that it was at parts or if it was just a reaction to something done in a different time but still a good psychological thriller. 

There is a 2010 version as well which changes around some of the plot elements but I still enjoyed quite a bit but I know many have been split on it.

Whenever Todd Glass was on NNF or CDR, I rarely got the impression he had any idea they're comedy shows. But I wish him a lot of luck, as I do all the podcasters.

Comedy And Everything Else is insufferable, though to be fair I haven't heard it in probably two years or so. Maybe they got better.

CAEE has been practically unlistenable since Todd left, and getting worse all the time.  Jimmy goes on his bitter, smug, simplistic, misinformed rants while Stef sycophantically agrees with everything (and does her same mock sincerity gag over and over and over again).  It's just tedious.  They still get good guests from time to time (PFT, Pardo, Brody) but more often it's someone you've never heard of, and for good reason.

Hurricane Irene and Other Things (http://thewhiteboardpodcast.wordpress.com/2011/08/30/hurricane-irene-and-other-things/)

Hurricane Irene turned out to be kind of a dud for the two of us. A dud until Alex lost power for a day hours after the storm had passed by and while it was sunny out. Anyways, welcome to the new version of The Whiteboard Podcast. Alex and Raz will talk news and pop culture every week. This week we talk about the hurricane, some US politics, Mad Men, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones and The Jersey Shore. Try to guess which of us likes which before you listen!

I love Comedy Bang Bang. However, don't be displeased if it takes an episode or two to get into it. It's kind of like The Best Show in that it has a unique rhythm that demands some listening patience.

The most recent episode of Comedy Bang Bang might be the funniest thing I've ever heard. Harris Wittles and Adam Scott are two of my favorite guests and their anti-comedy had me crying tears of joy.

As a lumberman, myself... I thoroughly appreciate this audiocast.

Anyone here enjoy The Tobolowsky Files? Stephen Tobolowsky is going to be on We Hate Movies! very soon. We've already recorded our in-depth interview with him. Mostly talking his role in 1991's "Deadlock" aka "Wedlock" which branches off into tons of stories. It's a real treat.

Til then, our latest episode is "18 Again!" with George Burns. It's one of my favorites already, as I guess I just have a soft spot for old man humor and sex jokes.

Well I listened to that Comedy Bang Bang episode you mentioned, Junior. Gah, that was soooo funny! Yes to laughing to the point of tears. :) Any other episodes come to mind as your guys' favourites? I need more of that!

I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on Aukerman's hosting.
I liked him well enough. I don't know that he generated many of the laughs out of me but at the same time he was never an interference or anything. He keeps the show moving along pretty well, though it did take a little while to get going. I enjoyed when he got in on the act and the fact he rarely kept a straight face made me laugh probably more than anything he said. :)



I listened to the Amy Poehler episode of WTF w/ Marc Maron. A decent episode with some interesting anecdotes about being on SNL. She's not my favourite on the show but Maron rarely has female guests and I was looking for a change up.



I've gotten back into Doug Loves Movies. I'd never heard Garfunkel and Oates before so that was fun. Like someone else said before, musical comedy shticks are usually my think but they were better than average.

Honestly, I've listened to every episode and have enjoyed every one.  Pretty much any episode with Paul F. Tompkins, James Adomian or Brett Gelman is gold.  Although it helps to listen in order, because there are recurring characters/stories.  For example, episode 35 (with the "iBrain" story) is a classic that kicks off a long-standing animosity between Gelman and Aukerman.

Been checking out Battleship Pretension.  One of the first episodes I heard they were complaining about someone complaining about guests on their show.  It seems that they spent a long time about one complaint.  Now I find that I agree with the original complainer-- simply because their movie/TV talk is really interesting and when a guest is on that talk is reduced considerably.  I am now only downloading the episodes without guests. 

I've tried The AuteurCast.  The first couple episodes seemed pretty lame.  They were focusing on Tarantino, but all they seemed to do is discuss plot points.  Umm, I've seen the films.  I don't need to rehearse them.  Perhaps there's more insight in later episodes, but it's not looking good.

Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo are really entertaining.  I don't know that they have a lot of insight, it's more typical movie reviews you might get when you haven't seen the movie.  But I'll probably keep listening just because it's fun.  I won't listen very often, though.

I don't mind the guest eps but agree that the show becomes considerably less insightful in terms of the film discussion when they're there. I mean the guests are usually only casual film fans. There are two guest episodes in particular that I remember really enjoying though. The Laraine Newman one, she's a voice actor and gives you a ton of insight into that world. Great guest. And going way back to episode 41, with Wyatt Cenac. He's a comedian but that episode stands out in my mind as just being way funny. Just thought I'd mention them.

Yeah, Huell Howser is why I recommended the Adomian episodes.  There's one utterly insane episode with PFT, Adomian, Tig Notaro, Reggie Watts, Andy Daly, Paul Scheer and Nick Kroll.  Episode #103.  Absolutely batshit crazy.

I found the latest CBB to be a bit disappointing.  Despite having Zach G, PFT and Yo La Tengo on hand, it never really gets off the ground.  PFT's impression of Werner Herzog is passable but not great, and he doesn't really do enough with it.  I am looking forward to the three PFT/Andy Daly episodes from Bumbershoot, however. 


RECENTLY SUBSCRIBED: NNF Presents Rock Solid - Gary Lucy and NNF's "third chair" Pat Francis discuss (mostly) rock music, usually in the form of various "top" lists.  Topics so far include slimming down double albums, Bond themes, cover songs, debut albums, et cetera.  Francis' tastes are a little too narrow, but Lucy brings in more variety, and the two are reasonably fun to listen to.  If I really needed to slow down my podcast intake, this would probably be one of the first on the chopping block, but it's a pretty good listen.

UNSUBSCRIBED: The Apple Sisters - It's only 20-25 minutes a week, but there's just not enough good laughs per episode to justify it.  The joke is wearing thin.

ON THE VERGE OF UNSUBSCRIBING: The Smartest Man in the World - I think this show is destroying my enjoyment of Greg Proops's comedy.  He has some great takes on things and is a master of wordplay, but the smugness and hipsterism is really overbearing.

ON THE VERGE OF UNSUBSCRIBING: Totally Laime - I got into them through the Earwolf Challenge, but after listening to a few episodes now, it's not doing enough for me to justify the hour a week.  I'm kind of hoping that Little Dum Dum Club wins the challenge, because they seem more my speed (even though I haven't subscribed to them yet).

My co-host, Simon Howell from the Sound on Sight Radio podcast, and I go through the past week's TV reviewing the shows we watched, then spotlight a particular episode (this week, it's Breaking Bad's "Salud"), then invite on a guest to discuss a favorite TV show no longer on the air.

Well, I listen to movie podcasts about films I haven't seen, but that's me. It's a lot of time though if you don't care about the topic. I'd guess you'd probably like the DVD Shelf segment (last part about the now-cancelled show), but if you don't feel like fast fowarding through to the last part of the 'cast, skip it. (Last week we did Buffy with David Bax from Battleship Pretension, this week it's NewsRadio.) Thanks for the kind words, though!

I actually wrote this prior to actually listening to the newest FS episode. I was kind of wondering if they were going to come into a bigger role with Mattys departure (although the Chicago/NY thing probably prevents this).

Since, I think Adam said some where that theres going to be guest hosts until he finds a replacement....which sort of implied it wouldnt be any of the regular substitutes.

Let us know what you think.  I like Tim & Eric, but I've hated Tim's appearances on CBB (with Neil Hamburger) and Who Charted.  I doubt his ability to be a compelling presence on a podcast.

Strike that. I listened to the 2 episodes this morning. The first one on Ghostbusters is a minute and a half long. The second on the Shining is 2 and a half minutes. It was kinda funny but definitely not something to review, or probably keep an eye on.

We also did an all horror month for October which culminated in us getting stuck in the haunted house that is 1999's "The Haunting." Also new this week, we go deep into Ricki Lake's 1989 "romantic" film "Babycakes!"

Ah Babycakes, I remember in primary school some of the girls were discussing why I didn't have a boyfriend, so they said I should watch Babycakes to learn how to pursue men as I reminded them of the main character. I cried for the next week solid and went on a diet.

Kids can be so cruel.

Anyway, excellent show as always, it got me through a crummy day of college so thanks a bunch.

The latest episode (http://www.soundonsight.org/the-televerse-9-spotlight-on-happy-endings-and-homeland-spaced-talk-with-craig-bevan/) of my podcast is up. We talk through the week's TV, spotlight Happy Ending's hilarious Halloween episode along with Homeland's latest, and then talk Spaced with Craig Bevan from Movies You Should See.

Last week (http://www.soundonsight.org/the-televerse-10-spotlight-on-the-good-wife-executive-order-13224-and-the-newsroom-talk-with-jesse-singer/) we had Jesse Singer from Filmed But Not Forgotten and Watch It TV Podcast on and talked The Newsroom, which is a great Canadian series in the vein of The (UK) Office crossed with SportsNight. This week (http://www.soundonsight.org/the-televerse-11-spotlight-on-fringe-and-homelandfirefly-with-justine-smith/) we had Justine Smith from Sound on Sight on and talked Firefly, which was a lot of fun for this Browncoat. We also go through the week's TV and spotlight notable episodes (The Good Wife, Fringe, and Homeland).

I now return you to your regurlarly scheduled DLM discussion. :)

I'm definitely going to check out the Cake Boss + Chupacabra + Don Dimello episode, but:

Is anyone else with me that both Cake Boss & Chupacabra are simultaneously incredibly grating, annoying, and unbearable to hear longer than 5 minutes...while at other times they are hilarious and clicking on all cylinders?  I don't know, those two characters are just very manic as far as how much they annoy me vs. make me laugh on any given Comedy Bang Bang episode.  I'm a huge PF Tompkins guy, but I love his ALWebber, Ice T, Werner Herzog and others far better.  And ditto for Nick Kroll; I could hear Fabrice Fabrice all day, his various baby incarnations (chicken or human haha), etc.

Don Dimello, on the other hand...now that's just one of the all time greatest segments I've ever heard on Bang Bang.  Episode 99 with Patton Oswalt + Andy Daly as Dimello belongs in some sort of comedy hall of fame.

Watch out, Martin just got bit by a Cake Scarab!  He might start foretelling our futures or talking with dead-wookies.   


AAAutin - I've gone the opposite with Chupa.  Started out really disliking him, but the more I hear him, the more like home he feels, he's grown on me bigtime.  Another one that's grown on me is Kroll's Bobby Brusha/Bottleservice.  I had heard him twice before, but I checked out the back double episode with Tig Nataro (ep 50 or so) and Kroll was on fire with Brusha.  Probably my least favorite character in the entire canon of the show, by far, is Lil' Gary.  I truly cannot listen to him (I think it's Tom Lennon?) for longer than :30 seconds without wanting to rip my hair out.  Just don't find it funny or amusing in the slightest.

Comedy Bang Bang may well have turned into my favorite podcast.  Aukerman is a brilliant host for the vibe they go for.  I'd say Filmspotting, WTF, Comedy Bang-Bang, and Radiolab are my Mt. Rushmore right now.  Tobolowski Files and BS Report after that probably. 

Nerdist I've been getting into lately, but I only like it when they have popular guests on, the informal interviews are great.  The Bryan Cranston episode was phenomenal, and I also really enjoyed Patrick Stewart, Ben Folds, Neil Gaimon and Zooey Deschanel.  Attell is on this week, I'm pumped for that one!

WTF - Anyone think he'll ever land Dave Chappelle?  It would be legendary.  Chappelle on Inside Actor's Studio as a guest was one of the most funny, genuine, wise, and moving episodes I've seen ...and then later hosting the episode and interviewing James Lipton on a later episode was great as well.  Chappelle + Maron would = hall of fame episode of WTF.

Bobby Brusha/Bottleservice.

Good character. When I first heard him, I thought it was Howard Kremer.

Probably my least favorite character in the entire canon of the show, by far, is Lil' Gary.

Oh, man. He's my favorite! I used to walk around exclaiming "Mott Skaukerman!" for no reason at all.

Chappelle + Maron would = hall of fame episode of WTF.

I have a feeling Maron's been working at this; but it doesn't seem like Chappelle is an easy get. I hope it happens.

Next country is Colombia (roujin's birthplace I believe!). We're watching The Wind Journeys (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1426374/) and Rodrigo D: No Futuro (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100508/).
The episode after that will most likely be a year-end wrap up where we talk about our favorite films from the year.

This is what I think Filmspotting does quite well, I think I can listen to the Podcast without it giving away too many details on something I might want to watch.  If I really really want to watch something, I won't listen.   But if I do not know very much about the film, it is good to listen and it won't be spoiled. 

Though I do like /filmcast since they amuse me at times and have a "what have you been watching" section that gives me some ideas.  I find the idea where they say "spoilers for ..." and ask you to turn off for 30 seconds silly as it is impossible to skip it and continue easily.  If it is old, spoil it, if it is not, find a way to discuss it that may interest somebody without spoiling it.

Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: MartinTeller on November 30, 2011, 02:07:26 PM
I feel like (because I'm bored) it's time for a periodic update of my subscribed podcasts:

Walking the Room and Comedy Bang Bang - My two favorites, I've gushed enough about these.  A+

Who Charted? - One of those rare shows where it doesn't really matter who the guest is because the chemistry between Howard and Kulap is so delightful (although a good guest is icing on the cake).  A

Earwolf Presents - Basically just the three episodes of "Analyze Phish" and one episode of "Gelmania" so far.  As a guy who used to love Phish and now can hardly stand them, I find the AP episodes quite interesting, although it can't go on much longer.  Gelmania was a mixed bag, but I'm looking forward to more.  B

Professor Blastoff - Lots of fun, great interplay between Tig, Kyle and David.  Occasionally a boring guest will bring it down a notch, but it's rare.  B+

Never Not Funny - I don't actually subscribe to this yet.  Still working through all the old episodes, just started season 7.  A-

Doug Loves Movies - Highly dependent on the guests, and how stoned/drunk Doug is.  Build-A-Title is probably a fun game to play, but terrible to listen to.  Either you don't know many titles and it's boring or you do know a bunch and get frustrated when they miss a good play.  And still boring.  However, the Maltin game still rules.  B

WTF - Losing interest, to be honest.  Maron's running out of good interviewees, and I probably skip one out of every three episodes nowadays.  Every once in a while an interview will really tap into something special, but lately they've been kind of blah.  B-

Affirmation Nation - The joke is wearing thin, but it's in such small chunks it's hard to complain.  Every now and then Seth Morris will come up with a new twist on it.  C+

TOFOP - The Australian "sister show" to WTR, a little too culturally specific at times but most of the time it's really funny.  B+

The Little Dum Dum Club - I think of this as TOFOP's baby brother (two Aussie comics shooting the breeze with occasional guests).  I find myself tuning it out sometimes but usually it's pretty good conversation.  B-

Rock Solid - This is a tough one.  Pat Francis has lousy taste in music (even the new stuff he likes is from bands who haven't been relevant for 25 years) but Gary Lucy usually balances him out.  It's interesting to hear their picks for the various lists and I've even been turned on to a couple new things, but the show is at its best when it's more loose chatter.  B

The Todd Glass Show - I can see myself eventually getting tired of this (or tired of hearing the same guests over and over again) but for now Todd's goofy brand of humor is delightful.  B+

The Pod F. Tompkast - PFT is my favorite comedian, which makes me sad that I don't like his podcast more.  The in-between-segment ramblings are usually the highlights for me.  His impressions work best when bouncing off other people... in the context of "The Great Undiscovered Project" they're rather dull.  The sketch portions from his shows and the calls with Jen Kirkman are very hit-or-miss, but usually more hit than miss.  B

Out of the Past - I ended up skipping a bunch of episodes.  These guys are obviously smart and knowledgable about noir, but their discussions are too dry and academic for me.  C-

Mike and Tom Eat Snacks - Funny show, great concept.  Lately they've been concentrating too much on homemade snacks and esoteric stuff that people send them, though.  They need to get back to more mass market snacks.  Still, it's always enjoyable.  B+

The Sporkful - I was in love with this for about a week and now I dunno.  I can't put my finger on why, but somehow I always end up zoning out and missing big parts of it.  It also seems like they're running out of topics, even though they shouldn't be.  C

Filmspotting - Well, duh.  As I've said, I often skip the review portion if it's a movie I'm not interested in, but the rest of it is great.  I hope a new permanent co-host gets established soon.  We need marathons back.  B+

The Mental Illness Happy Hour - I just started this one with the Kulap episode and haven't listened to any of the older ones.  Seems pretty good so far, but the jury's still out.  Let's call it a B

improv4humans - New podcast featuring Matt Besser.  I don't really like this kind of improv, but at least one segment each episode has been really good.  Jury's still out on this one too.  B-

Earwolf Challenge - I really enjoyed the first season, and it sounds like they'll be doing it again, hopefully addressing some of the flaws in the format.  B


Gosh, that's a lot but I've probably forgotten one or two.

WTF - Losing interest, to be honest.  Maron's running out of good interviewees, and I probably skip one out of every three episodes nowadays.

I have only skipped one episode, and that was Gaffigan, way back in the single-digit days. (Because, well, how many jokes about foodstuffs can one man stand?)

I also disagree about the interviewees bit; just in November alone, Maron has talked to: Chris Rock, Rainn Wilson, Adam Scott, Merrill Markoe, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Penn Jillette. Plus, the interview I was the least excited for--Steve Dansiger--which ended up being the best of the bunch.

The Indoor Kids

And I've been catching up on THE BUGLE, to which I had not listened in ages.

I listened to the first episode of The Indoor Kids because I really like Kumail but it was just a lot of "oh remember this certain game we used to play? that was fun!". A lot of that came from Ali Baker. Have things improved?

The Bugle is great. There's few things that I enjoy more than John losing it during one of Andy's painful pun sprees.

I didn't listen (much) during the Ali Baker run. But she only lasted seven episodes, and was subsequently replaced by Emily V. Gordon, Kumail's wife. I know that sounds like a recipe for disaster, but it's actually a great combination: Emily brings her therapist training to the table, and you get to hear her and Kumail argue about their cat. Kumail does engage in a little "hey-rememember-that-game," but the show mostly grooves with the guest. If you want to get back into it, a few places you might want to start from: the video game addiction episode with Tom Lennon, the picking-the-wrong-horse episode with Paul Scheer, and/or the video game adaptations episode with Jeff Rubin.

There's few things that I enjoy more than John losing it during one of Andy's painful pun sprees.

So good.

JBizz - Have you kept up with The Basketball Jones podcasts over the summer (aka: The Blank Jones)?  I've found it absolutely hysterical hearing all four of them riffing on some random topic.  Will miss it a lot, even though I'm ecstatic they'll have regular NBA podcasts again with the season returning soon.

I listened to most of The [Blank] Jones and enjoyed them. I was supposed to go to the live show when they stopped in Chicago but couldn't make it because of work. I've really been enjoying those episodes.

Which of the NBA podcasts would you recommend the highest?

It depends on what you're looking for. I think from a strict analysis basis, NBA Today w Ryen Russillo is tough to beat. Unlike a lot of ESPN guys, Russillo doesn't really kiss anyone's ass and really knows his stuff. They also get a lot of great guests from the True Hoop network along with some other good stat guys. The Basketball Jones is great from a fan perspective. Skeets and Tas are pretty funny and their show really feels like hanging out with some friends that love basketball for 30 minutes a day. The Disciples of Clyde podcast got the Free Darko blessing a few years back and does have a bit of the FD feel to it. They're pretty inconsistent in posting shows and they are often Knicks-centric, but Shoals pops up on the show pretty frequently. The NBA.com's Hang Time podcast is my least favorite. Sekou Smith and Lang Whitaker both know their stuff, but I find a lot of the former players they often have as guests are pretty lousy.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: DarkCrystal on December 01, 2011, 03:57:19 PM
AAustin - Thought I'd pipe in with my takes on the major NBA ones (I agree with JBissel):

ESPN's NBA Today with Russillo is pretty awesome.  Strengths: What's great about him is that he really knows his stuff, is able to present things in a really intelligent way, is very logical with how he approaches coverage of the league...AND has a great sense of humor, and the Bill Simmons casual-informal thing going on.  A+ podcast, and his discussions/interviews with fellow ESPN'ers Henry Abbot from True-Hoop, as well as Ric Bucher and JA Adande, are unbeatable.  His Wednesday night "Tales From the Couch", 30 minutes of him discussing each game/teams from the previous night, going into rants and depth about particular players...is also great.  Weaknesses:The only knock I'd have with Russillo sometimes is his blatant arrogance on the show...which I think he tries to pass off at times as "You guys don't get that I'm doing this on purpose, take a joke" vibe...but, he can kinda be a legit dick at times.   While he's great at leading discussions with ESPN cohorts, he's not a very good interviewer with NBA players, coaches, GMs. 


BS Report - Might as well be considered an NBA podcast given his obsession with the NBA.  Bill Simmons can be a divisive figure, but I've been following him since 2001 when he first came to ESPN's Page 2 and have always been a big fan.  Strengths:  always creative in how he thinks about the league, takes the fans perspective seriously, great rapport with guests, awesome interviews with people in NBA circles (David Stern, players, GMs).  Has a great respect for the history of the game, and is a total geek in the best way possible with knowing every team/player's financial situation.  His "Three-Man-Weave" episodes with Ric Bucher and Marc Stein are probably my favorite NBA anything's to listen to all year.    Weaknesses:  Very "flavor of the month" type of thinking, can get so lost in his wacky ideas that he doesn't take into account the reality of a given situation, sometimes doesn't think long term with team projections, doesn't take into account the various ramifications and factors that are involved with serious trades.  Too much of a, "It's simple, just do xyz!" approach sometimes.


The Basketball Jones - These guys rock.  It's THE perfect fan oriented podcast.  J.E. Skeets & Tas Melas are the main two cogs that hold the show down with analysis, Matty and JD pipe in with production and witticisms.  Skeets & Tas are basically die hard NBA fans that watch every game, read every box score, and have enough knowledge to be pro analysts on a network...without actually being that.  It's real loose and informal, often laugh out loud funny when they go off on tangents, but they really hold it down with legit NBA knowledge, and always present interesting takes on team/player analysis.  Skeets and Tas often disagree (which makes for a fun listen), and they are good at presenting both sides of an argument.  They also do some pretty hysterical video segments, where they'll do wacky skits or traveling-interviews to talk about NBA teams (three favorites of mine: Ron Arteset crashing the Ron Artest art show, Mad Money/Jim Cramer "Booyah!" treating NBA players like stocks, and their "Like a Bosh" rap: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2--uG4QMlA0&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL33F1BADD1514332D). 

FreeDarko guys - I don't even remember the name of their podcast, because I gave it about 4-5 tries and then bagged it.  Pretty awful.  I'm a BIG FreeDarko fan in general...their articles and whacked out tangential humor, weird slants and references to total randomness always gives me a chuckle, and right when you think they are diving into total nonsense land, they always pull back and make a great point about the NBA.  But unfortunately their skill with written word does not translate to audio well.

Thanks for the recommendations, guys. I've tried THE B.S. REPORT before, but for whatever reason, could never really get into it. (Bill Simmons has an odd voice, for starters.) I generally abhor anything ESPN-related, but I'll give NBA TODAY a shot anyway. BASKETBALL JONES sounds like it'll fit me the best.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: jbissell on December 01, 2011, 04:35:43 PM
Plus TBJ are Raptor fans (they're based in Toronto), so you know they're legit.

Simmons has been turning me off more and more the last few years. It's just real hard to buy his "everyfan" vibe when the guy is friends with GMs and other Insiders and I think he's lost a lot of the perspective that I found so appealing in the early-00s. I thought he was really off the mark during the lockout, especially placing equal blame on the players and owners.

Re: Free Darko Presents. I don't believe Ken and/or Dan ever really wrote for Free Darko. It was more like they had an NBA podcast that the Free Darko guys liked and sort of made it the "official" FD podcast. I would agree that it's the most inessential of those listed but they post so infrequently it's not hard to give it a listen.

After two pretty bad road episodes, Doug Loves Movies had a really great one in the normal place and time. Only two guests, but one of them is Jeff Garland. That guy can talk for forever. Anthonly Jeselnick (close?) did a great job at jabbing back at him, though. And there should never be morning radio hosts on DLM ever again. That second one was interminable, if it wasn't for Shane Mauss I would have turned it off 20 minutes in.

Glad you guys brought this up!  The Garlin/Jeselnik/Rooker is one of the wackier trio of guests I've seen on a Bang Bang or DLM.  Has anyone heard it yet, is it a good one? 

I find Jeff Garlin to be hilarious; he may talk a lot, he may be arrogant as all hell, but damn he makes me laugh.  It's funny to see how different his real life persona is (authoritative, blunt, boisterous, lightning bolt in a room) vs. his passive, blob of a character on Curb as Larry's agent.  Anyone else agree that the Comedy Bang Bang episode with Garlin and Andy Daly (as trainerforthestars and the 60 year first-time-comic) is one of the all-time greats?

Yeah, it was pretty bad. I didn't make it through the entire episode, but about halfway through, I just kept getting more and more frustrated. I almost want him to brief the guests who don't know the rules of the Len Maltin game before the show. They'll still, I'm sure, have questions about the game's intricacies, but it'll help to have a bit of knowledge pre-recording. Glad to hear the new episode's a return to form--I'll listen to it tomorrow morning to kick off the workweek, as usual.

Title: Re: Other Podcasts

It's essential listening if you love boner jokes.

I'd recommend checking out some episodes with guests you like and see if you want to go from there, though obviously with a show that has been going on so long, there tend to be some reoccuring jokes that might not make sense if you're just jumping around.

There's a pretty exhaustive episode guide at www.jjgo.org and the reference guide could be helpful. Maybe at some point I can list some of my favorite episodes but I don't have time at the moment.

Title: Re: Other Podcasts

a hangout show

That's exactly what it is: Jordan and Jesse hanging out in Jesse's apartment, with the occasional guest, all while Jesse's dog Cocoa yaps in the background. I used to really dig it, but between JORDAN JESSE GO! and THE SOUND OF YOUNG AMERICA, Jesse Thorn just wore on me after a while. (Still love Jordan Morris, though, and I'm generally up for anything he guests on.)
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: mousterpiece on December 05, 2011, 12:56:17 PM

Martin - I'd say, "Well...you don't have to listen to all the old episodes..." but then I'd be a hypocrite, because I'm obsessive like that too.  Nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing beautiful, long lists of gray coloring in the previously heard episodes (I'm a Zune guy, no idea if iTunes does that).

Glad you like it. I imagine the video pods will start next week.

Looks like the format of the ESPN NBA Today podcast is changing a bit. I think Rusillo will be on Mondays, Tim Legler and Mike Yam on Wed, and Henry Abbott (!) on Fridays. I'd suggest skipping any show with Legler but the other two are great.

I don't watch ESPN's basketball coverage but most times I hear him it's a lot of the cliched stuff that comes from ex-players.  As for Broussard, the Internet HATES him. I'm sure it has a lot to do with him and Skip Bayless on whatever that awful show is called. I haven't seen enough of him outside of reading his news items to have any opinion.

Ah, good. For clarification, I was able to download the episode via iTunes by refreshing my Podcasts page yesterday morning, but if you go to the page on iTunes, or the URL in my signature, it shows the Muppet Christmas Carol episode as the latest one. No idea what the screw-up is. Anyway, thanks for listening!

Just on Wednesdays. Leading up to the holiday they had him on every day for two weeks, but for the most part it's a rotating chair between Hill, those Stu guys, Mangini/Hugh Douglas/Jon Ritchie/Kordel Stewart (though, like you said, maybe with the NFL winding down these guys will be put on the shelf for a while), and Rob Parker. Maybe some others, I don't really recognize Broussard from his pictures on google though. I think he's been on before, but not really a regular. Maybe with more NBA though. I shall report back.

I think that Cinema on the Road's Top 10 of 2011 is a great introduction to their podcast.  They give a lot of "teasers" that make you want to hear more.  Sometimes, w and r, your discussions are pretty detailed and I almost never have watched the films before your recommendation.  This briefer discussion of films I (mostly) haven't seen, is just what I needed to encourage me to watch the films and then hear your fuller reviews.

Ah, I do know that guy. He hasn't been on much lately, but maybe that is because of the lack of NBA stuff. I reckon I'll figure out if he's on more as the season progresses. I usually skip the bigger NBA topics because, for the most part, I already have an idea of what Skip is going to say.

roujin and worm, I listened to some of the episode but had to stop again because I wasn't in a position where I could have both earphones in. I shall pick it up again later this week.

I haven't read/listened to Simmons much, but I'm with you on the studio stuff. "Heat and Lakers" is absolutely right. Remember back when 'Bron was with the Cavs and ESPN was doing its damnedest to shape a Kobe vs. LeBron narrative? Horrible. The fact that they never wound up in the Finals together did a lot for my continued appreciation of the NBA.

Actually, I think it's pretty much spoiler free, now that I think back on it. I do recall letting slip a couple Doctor Who ones (one that's barely a spoiler in the section, and another when discussing my pick for Best Quote). If you're worried though, you can get the mp4 version, which has chapter breaks so you can skip around to different sections, based on what you've seen. So, if you're behind on, say, Justified, you can skip that and listen to the rest.

Thankfully there are so many great outlets on the net that it's pretty easy to avoid ESPN. I do think their True Hoop network is very good, along with the statheads like Hollinger.

Those of you who are big fans of NPR, I encourage you to check out our (Canadian) public broadcaster, CBC. They have a daily show (available in podcast) called Q with Jian Ghomeshi. It's an hour-long interview show that usually features three guests per show, often writers, actors, musicians, journalists, etc, and frequent musical performances in studio. Ghomeshi is probably the best interviewer out there, and there's a lot for Filmspotters to love (last year he featured Steve McQueen and Michael Fassbender in the same interview, talking about Shame).

Aside from that, I also love How Did This Get Made?, a biweekly Earwolf podcast in which comedian/actor Paul Scheer and his two cohosts (+ 1 guest) watch and review a really awful movie. They've done Season of the Witch, Old Dogs, Jingle All the Way, Superman III, among others. I don't laugh as hard any other time during the week.

Yes, but I'm stuck with a character who's dull as dishwater from the word go, and I have to wait a good 30 minutes to meet the dwarves. They're not exactly sparkling personalities themselves, you know. Like I say on the show, a big issue for me regarding the storytelling is that it's an 83-minute version of a 45-minute story.

I have been trying out a few non-film podcasts of late and dumping a few I had been listening to. One type of podcast I have dumped is the 'bad' movie podcast, I was listening to 3 of them. In the end they did not bring much to the table, except kicking an easy target, there would be an occasional good episode (mainly from How Did This Get Made), but I can not be bothered sorting through the dross to find them.

I did try to broaden my mind and listened to one episode of 'Stuff You Should Know', but they lost me in the first episode. I can not respect a show trying to 'teach' me new stuff, if the hosts can not do a basic kilometres to miles conversion, they should be able to do it on the fly. Even if they can not, it shows a lack of preparation, which reflects a lack of research that taints the veracity of the knowledge they are imparting.

I have been listening to 'Best of The Left' podcast, which being a 'best' of a variety of sources is a little repetitive, but still it is an interesting listen.

I am attempting to improve myself and have been listening to 'The Critical Thinker Academy', only a few episodes in (there are only 17 episodes so far), but it has been very interesting.

In the world of technology I have tried 'This Week in Tech' and 'Tech Talk Radio', both interesting. I am trying to pick just one to continue with, but have not been able to pick yet. I will need to give them another month to give the silly season time to finish.

Current Favourite Podcasts (listen as soon as a new episode is released):

Boxcutters - (Australian TV, awesome hosts)
Where the Long Tail Ends - (2 old films reviewed per episode, infrequent posting)

Listen to soonish (within a few days) after release:

The /Filmcast

Dave, I think you missed the whole charm of the Stuff You Should Know Podcast.  What you've got are a couple of regular guys who have studied research for the topic that week and are just repeating what someone else has collected.  Occasionally, they are the researcher for the topic, but most of the time, they know a bit about something and are just explaining what they found out just that week.  The fact that they are so ignorant about so much else is a good part of the enjoyment.  These guys aren't experts and so they can explain the topic to us on our level.

Well, my level anyway.  It's a great teaching program, in my opinion.  And given their numbers, in a lot of people's opinion.

I want to formally declare my listenership to Kermode and Mayo's podcast.  The reviews are great and they are truly funny.  I know I'm a latecomer to that podcast, but it is now a regular part of my weekly listening.  Another step in my assimilation.

You should check out my podcast. http://WHMPodcast.com "We Hate Movies." A fan favorite is our take on "Superman III" actually.  Check out our review on the AV Club if you're on the fence on checking us out: http://www.avclub.com/articles/week-of-sept-29oct-5,62975/

I think there are good "bad" movie podcasts out there. We actually love some movies we do and and the end will recommend or not recommend a movie. One of our guys is an actual film critic, and two of us went to college for Film Studies, so we don't just kick a dead dog (all the time, anyway.)

We do not often have guests but they have included Stephen Tobolowsky talking about his acting role in "Deadlock" (a movie we covered) as well as Michael J. Nelson and Joel Hodgson. Hodgson's 40-50 minute conversation drops sometime this month, so stay tuned.

The latest episode (http://www.soundonsight.org/the-televerse-19-spotlight-on-the-good-wifethe-outer-limits-with-bill-mesce/) of my podcast is up. Simon and I go through the week's TV (including the terrible pilots for Work It, House of Lies, and The Firm and the rather underwhelming Portlandia and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret season 2 premieres) and spotlight The Good Wife's return episode. Then I talk The Outer Limits (1963 version) with Bill Mesce. All I'll say is this- thank goodness for The Good Wife and Downton Abbey both coming back this week!

At least currently airing, though P&R and Archer come close to knocking it down and Luck and Skins will likely overtake it.

EDIT: I'm all caught up on Portlandia as well, and it's mostly a sketch comedy show. Sometimes they hit really well, but mostly that show feels like background noise for me. I understand most of the sketches that I don't like, at least from a theoretical comedic level thing, but they just aren't that funny most of the time. Armisen generally annoys me.

That said, I've not seen an episode yet where every sketch was a miss, which I guess is a positive. If Portlandia is a necessary evil that keeps Todd Margaret on the air, I'm fine with it doing super well.

Probably should've posted about the new episode in this thread, but I've got a new episode of Mousterpiece Cinema--the best Disney movie podcast you will ever hear--on Sound on Sight. This week, I'm joined again by Michael Ryan, the show's new co-host, to discuss The Love Bug (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-29-the-love-bug/). You know you want to check it out.

Post by: mousterpiece on January 21, 2012, 08:48:31 PM
Not for a while. I'm genuinely not sure if they'd qualify as feature films, but then, I'm planning on doing the direct-to-DVD sequels, which are features but are rarely released in theaters. So...not for a while. But I'm sure we'll get to them (and that's serious, since my calendar for the show extends a few years down the line).

If anybody wants more film talk, I would recommend FilmJunk.

Along with filmspotting, they are one of the longest running film podcasts. (353 episodes at one a week).  Their podcasts are generally a little bit longer, around 3 hours, but they review the main release of the week, along with other stuff they have watched and some film news and trailers.

It is a little bit more loose than filmspotting.  They do curse, but if you are alright with that, I highly recomend it.

Some of my favourite podcasts are as follows:

Kermode and Mayo’s film review, the rants are epic, the way they press each others buttons and argue is amazing and Kermode's books (halfway through the most recent one) are very good too.

 The Basketball Jones, daily (Monday-Friday) NBA video-podcast, shot and aired live, very funny and great at breaking down the small things you might not have noticed from the previous nights games.

FreeDarko presents the disciples of Clyde, another NBA podcast, regularly goes way off topic and end up talking about classic film noir or some weird discovery channel documentary.

ESPN’s NBA Today, 3 shows a week, different host(s) for each one. Monday is Ryen Russilo, he’s really really good, excellent at breaking down plays and admittedly hates how ESPN do stuff like harp on about the Heat and Lakers all the time. Wednesday is Mike Yam and Tim Legler, weakest out of the 3 but definitely still good, Legs can relate to current players and is great about giving little stories about being an NBA player and what it’s like. Friday is Henry Abbott, the author of the amazing TrueHoop blog, Henry usually spends a show breaking down what’s on his mind (did a whole show with just him talking about how Kobe is not as good in the clutch as perceived) and is excellent. As you can see I’m a HUGE fan of that podcast

Hollywood Babble-on and Jay and Silent Bob get Old. Both are Kevin Smith podcasts, both are equal parts hilarious and inappropriate, definitely not the type of show you want your Mother to hear.

Dear Mousterpiece Cinema,

Please stop making me want to rewatch the films you discuss on your show. This started with Ratatouille (as if I haven't seen it enough times already) and his continued through last night's Blu-Ray viewing of The Lion King. (Paying special attention to "Be Prepared".) The wife is becoming suspicious of my constantly picking Disney films for us to watch.

Thank You.

p.s. Reviewing films that are not available on DVD is a bit unfair. Your recent discussion of The Muppets left me anxiously waiting.

Hi guys,

I co-host a weekly podcast at www.adisappointingcast.com.

We take two films and a theme each week.  We talk about the films in depth and then discuss our favourite films on the theme.  We're picking up a small but dedicated listenership but now we'd like to encourage people to join in the discussion on our forums, argue with us a bit and get some meaty debate going.

We'd love it if you could come and check it out and let us know what you think.

Thanks for reading,

Time for another episode of Mousterpiece Cinema, folks. This week (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-30-the-brave-little-toaster/), my co-host, Michael Ryan, and I looked at 1987's The Brave Little Toaster. I don't want to give away the whole episode, but though we have some Toy Story-sized reservations, both of us enjoyed the film. I am, of course, biased, but I think this was a great show, and hope you all get a chance to check it out.

Hey all,

I haven't posted in awhile, been quite busy working on another short film, but my film podcast "Film Jive" is still up and running, with several new episodes.

We'd really love it, if some of you fine film folks would leave us an Itunes review, or send us some feedback in an email at filmjive(at)gmail.com.

We haven't received much feedback from listeners as of late, so I would really appreciate at it if you guys did so.

Here's a link to our blog, where you can stream the episodes instantly: http://filmjive.wordpress.com/

Our latest is our Best of 2011 show, "Film Jive's Golden Jive Turkeys of 2011" so give that a listen. 

We've also got past episodes covering films such as "Moneyball" "Arthur Christmas" and so on.

You can find us on Facebook and Google+, just type in the search bar "Film Jive".

We'd really love for some more fans, so give us a chance if you'd be so kind.

Our next episode will be released very shortly. I hope to hear from some of you! Thanks!

Back with the latest episode (http://www.soundonsight.org/the-televerse-22-spotlight-on-justifiedchuck-with-shawn-keown/) of my podcast. We take a torch to Touch, spotlight Justified's second episode, and, in honor of its Friday finale, we welcome Shawn Keown from the Zero Pretension podcast (http://zeropretension.wordpress.com/) to the DVD Shelf to talk Chuck.

This week, we also cover: Childrens Hospital, Top Chef: Texas, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Archer, Fringe, An Idiot Abroad, the Fades, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, and Lost Girl.

Had a lot of fun talking Chuck- wasn't the best show ever, but it was certainly fun. Let me know what you think if you check it out!

My podcast rotation has been pretty set for awhile so I havent gone to the podcast section in itunes for quite awhile. Yesterday I was looking though, and I noticed that all the Kevin Smith stuff (Smod, Jay and Silent Bob get Old) was much farther down than I wouldve though. He used to always be up in that Simmons/Maron/Carolla range. Is anyone still listening?

I had really liked him for quite awhile. He has always been a bit too sensetive and argumentitive, but it was always with a "aw shucks I just a guy from jersey" attitude. The Tim Burton story on an Evening With Kevin Smith or his stories about conflict with Jenny McCarthey were really funny to me. But sometime around what some would percieve to be a failure of Z&M at the box office, his attitude kind of took a turn to that of a righteous indignation and I found it really offputting. Had to stop listening. From the charts it seems like Im not the only one. Is anyone still listening to Smith? How is it?
Title: Re: Other Podcasts

heh. Just listened to 100 minutes of them arguing with each other. They were going to do a tv show, and basically the deal broke down because one isnt an emailer, and one isnt a phone caller. Their miscommunications with each other were taken as slights, and ended up costing them both 500K.

One more month beginning with me not completely loving a Disney classic and it's a trend: I was joined by my other co-host, Gabe Bucsko, on Mousterpiece Cinema this week to review  (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-31-mary-poppins/)1964's Mary Poppins. I liked this more than Snow White, but it's, sadly, not practically perfect in every way. Check it out and tell me how crazy I am!

I've caught up with the past episodes. Looking forward to Mary Poppins since I usually agree with your talking points, but Poppins is my #84 Film of All Time (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=8652.msg550315#msg550315). I have Nightmare Before Christmas at #70 (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=8652.msg551531#msg551531), and that episode (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-18-the-nightmare-before-christmas/) came out fine. Maybe I'm more protective of Mary because I know MartinTeller is going to watch it soon.

Mary Poppins truly is perfect.  On my top 100 and completely delightful.  Anyone who says anything bad about it is not only wrong, but probably doesn't know what real entertainment is.  I know this is true because my entire nuclear family agrees with me.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts

I agree with the second sentence. Not so much with the first one. There are many great parts to Mary Poppins, but I honestly don't think that, as a whole, it succeeds as well as it could or should. But for anyone--say, people whose screenames rhyme with Goldkid--who is concerned that I'm ridiculously insane, I say zero bad things about Julie Andrews on the show. She's a treasure, as is David Tomlinson, and most of the music.

Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: FLYmeatwad on February 04, 2012, 04:58:02 PM
Because it's on the schedule, or because it's planned for a release?

I heard about the 2012 slate of Disney Blu-Rays too, and I was sorely disappointed that I'll need to wade through a bunch of direct to DVD sequels and lesser animated theatrical features while Hercules is quarantined to the realm of scare DVD copies that I ought to track down to update my VHS.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: mousterpiece on February 04, 2012, 05:17:28 PM
The former, though I've heard of rumors that Disney may eventually release it. That 2012-early 2013 slate of Blu-rays is insane, even though it does suck that Hercules and Mulan, among others, aren't coming out soon.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: sdedalus on February 04, 2012, 06:45:15 PM
Let's be real, Song of the South is leagues better than Poppins.

I wouldn't count that as a live-action Disney film at all.  It's good, but I still prefer Poppins for its indictment of the capitalist vision of the nuclear family in favor of a feminist reconfiguration.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: mousterpiece on February 04, 2012, 06:50:08 PM
You know, I'm glad someone brought that up. Unfortunately, my co-host and I didn't get into this on the show, but I did get a kick out of how the supposedly dominant male of the family is righted by a sane, upstanding female from the beginning to the end.

(And, being fair, if Song of the South isn't live-action, then neither is Mary Poppins. Both have extended sequences of animation. The only difference is that the latter has more interaction between live-action and animation.)

It's been a really long time since I saw SoS (I caught its last theatrical release), but as I remember, Poppins has one short animated sequence while SoS is an animated film with live-action interstitials.

It's been a while since I've seen Poppins, or SoS for that matter (though not nearly as long as Mary), but I would say that SoS is a live-action film wish animated interstitials.

Would have to see Poppins again, I am mostly going on childhood memory where this subtext escaped me, but I find myself easily caught up in the racial element of SoS, though I suppose it does reinforce the conventional functioning of race relations and familial structure. Maybe. Or it challenges it, I didn't give that much thought at the time and lack the specific examples to make that claim, I feel. Either way, I think the subtext is mighty rich.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: mousterpiece on February 04, 2012, 11:00:05 PM
Poppins definitely is more live-action than animation, but I believe Fly's right--my understanding is that SoS is mostly live-action, with about 25 minutes of animation peppered into it. More than Poppins has, but there's enough live-action there to make it the predominant medium.

Spoiler alert- Pruitt Taylor Vince and Neal McDonough are awesome. Then Tyler Smith from Battleship Pretension (http://www.battleshippretension.com/) and More Than One Lesson (http://www.morethanonelesson.com) comes over to the DVD Shelf to talk about The Critic, the unfortunately short-lived '90s animated comedy.

I'm sure we're all already being very diligent and listening to Slate's 'The Afterword', but the most recent episode, 'Rez Life', is incredibly wonderful. I initially dismissed it before listening, because what connection could I possibly have to the show as an Anglo Australian? As it was, I found incredibly insightful ties to the current situation of indigenous Australians, and larger, more beautiful opening-ups about group identity. Really worth listening to.

Agreed.  Fantastic episode (and I love the podcast generally).

I'm going through old Comedy Death Ray Radio ep's, and they're all great. But, at what point do they stop playing full songs? I tend to skip through them, despite the fact that they're generally pretty good.

Fairly early on, if I recall. Definitely within the first year. Actually, I bet it was when Indie 103.1 made the transition from terrestrial to online.

This week on Mousterpiece Cinema, we're in DIRECT COMPETITION with Adam and Michael Phillips! Not really, but we--me and my co-host, Michael Ryan--did happen to review Disney's American dub of The Secret World of Arrietty on our new episode (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-34-the-secret-world-of-arrietty/). (Full clarification: I haven't listened to the Filmspotting episode yet, so I promise, if we share our opinions, it's completely coincidental.)

In the episode, we not only discuss Arrietty, but American dubs of foreign animation, the history of Studio Ghibli, I throw in an Arrested Development reference at the end--let's say to honor one of the film's performers, Will Arnett--and I discover what an old Disney live-action movie about a boy and his pet raccoon has to do with Hayao Miyazaki. Check it out!

Apologies for being somewhat self-promotional, but another filmspotter and I got together to record an episode of my podcast. If anyone's curious, here's the latest episode of my show where Lobby and I review WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, and talk up many other Filspotting-friendly titles.

I admit that the timing is a bit odd. First I do no podcasting at all and then all of a sudden I'm on two podcasts in a couple of hours.

Anyway: If you'd like to hear more ranting by Lobby and by another Filmspotting member, Dan Heaton, who also was in the panel,  - tune in for the latest LAMBcast. The theme is what we'd been watching lately and I went for something not so artsy this time.

The latest episode (http://www.soundonsight.org/the-televerse-26-spotlight-on-luckdeadwood-with-previously-on/) of my TV podcast is up. This week, we go pretty quickly through a few shows (Cougar Town, Suburgatory, An Idiot Abroad, Lost Girl, The Voice, Key & Peele, New Girl, Happy Endings, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Archer, Eastbound & Down, and HIMYM), before spending a little more time on the week's hourlongs (Justified, Top Chef: Texas, the Awake pilot, Fringe, The Amazing Race, and Smash).

Then we spotlight Luck and spend the better part of an hour breaking down David Milch's fabulous Deadwood with David Bax and Sean Ingram from Previously On. Drop us a line if you check it out- I'd love to hear from people about their favorite Deadwood characters and moments.

We went back to the rink this week on Mousterpiece Cinema--my co-host Michael Ryan and I discussed  (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-35-d2-the-mighty-ducks/)1994's D2: The Mighty Ducks. Skype was being a bit ornery with us, so there are a few glitchy places. That aside, this is definitely our weirdest, wildest episode yet from pretty much the first second. There's a lot of goofy talk about how tall Emilio Estevez is not, a lack of tension in family films, Kenan Thompson, and cartoonish sound effects. Check it out!

Here's the latest episode of my podcast (http://www.soundonsight.org/the-televerse-27-spotlight-on-archerinterview-with-bill-persky/).

My cohost Simon and I spotlight Archer and I got to talk with writer/director/producer Bill Persky, perhaps best known as one of the creators of That Girl, as well as for producing The Dick van Dyke Show and Kate and Allie. He talks about some of his experiences in the business, gives his thoughts on the state of network television, and how the depictions of women on TV have changed over the years. Plus, fun stories about George Carlin and Bing Crosby!

Simon and I also talk about Spartacus, which he just caught up with, The Voice, which it appears I have an unhealthy fondness for, and the finale of Top Chef: Texas and pilot of GCB. There's also plenty of talk about the rest of the week's TV, including Justified, Cougar Town, Suburgatory, Happy Endings, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, An Idiot Abroad, Eastbound & Down, The Amazing Race, The Good Wife, Luck, Lost Girl, and Smash. If you listen, drop me a line and let me know what you think!

This week, I'm joined once again by Gabe Bucsko to discuss Lady and the Tramp, the 1955 classic that recently came out on Blu-ray for the first time. If you've listened to this week's Filmspotting, you know that Andrew Stanton may have mentioned it in his Top 5 Traditionally Animated Movies list. I'll simply say that...well, one of us would agree with Mr. Stanton and the other one is me. Check out the new episode and let me know what you think/how crazy you think I am.

*Finally* caught up with this one. I've been behind on Nerdist for a while, now that they're 3x a week. Worked out though- loved all the pi talk (Pi Day ftw!) and prompted me to go home and watch the Animaniacs songs, the Element song, the Pi song, etc. Good times!

Btw, that quadratic equation song is awesome- that's how I learned the equation in middle school and I doubt I'll ever forget it. Put it to a catchy tune and it's locked in there.

There's a new episode  (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-37-john-carter/)of Mousterpiece Cinema up on Sound on Sight today, where Michael Ryan and I travel to Barsoom with John Carter, the much ballyhooed live-action epic from first-time live-action helmer Andrew Stanton. We talked a bit about 3D, the film's marketing campaign, its bad buzz, Stanton kind of fueling division, but most importantly, that most basic question of all: is this movie any good? I won't spoil the episode in-depth, but I think it's safe to say we were both a bit warmer on the film than Adam and Josh were on the episode of Filmspotting last week. Check it out!

Yes, it's another Herbie episode, as this week, we discussed  (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-38-herbie-goes-to-monte-carlo/)Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo! (Imagine me saying "Monte Carlo" in a very faux-excited voice, won't you?) It's another nutty show, as befits each Herbie episode. There's yodeling, Three's Company, The Young and the Restless, and an invocation of the famous catchphrase Dan Aykroyd and Steve Martin had on SNL as the Festrunk brothers. Check it out!

I recently heard of the show Bent and I shall be catching up with it shortly because I learned that it has both Jeffrey Tambor and J.B. Smoove. But, perhaps even more importantly, it prominently features David Walton (previously known for that God awful television program Perfect Couples) being a pretty huge dick. Coming back around to the performance that made Walton a heavy hitter in comedy: Dr. Rick in William Gluck's largely overlooked (and best film) Fired Up!. So I hope to get to it this weekend.

The special occasion is the 1940 classic Fantasia. Plenty of fun and different perspectives in this week's lengthy and awesome conversation, so I hope you all check it out.

I know you wonder if I still listen to the podcast since I never comment. The Wild was amusing because it's a terrible film and that show is playfully polite towards that fact. (You're not shooting any sacred cows.) This recent Fantasia ep. might be your best yet. Bringing together a musician, someone with a through knowledge of the behind the scenes info who feels this is Disney's masterpiece and your appreciating it but not loving it covers all the essential bases for a great discussion. (The only component you could add would be to bring on FLY who declares this Disney's worst and a low point in cinema.)

And for once I found myself agreeing with you on every point. Of the 51 official Disney animated films, Fantasia is #24 for me. I respect it, but you could hardly say I enjoy watching it. Here is the thread from the group marathon we did (http://www.filmspotting.net/forum/index.php?topic=5429.0) a couple of years ago.
Title: Re: Other Podcasts
Post by: mousterpiece on April 16, 2012, 11:44:13 AM
1SO, thanks for your feedback and for listening! Regarding The Wild, I know that if Michael had been less appreciative, we probably wouldn't have been as polite. (As it stands, the last episode of this month, where Gabe and I are doing Cinderella II, will likely...not be very polite, unless either of us are legitimately surprised by what we see.) I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the Fantasia episode; I'm pretty partial to it as well (though choosing a best episode is like choosing a favorite child). Kate, as anyone who listens to her podcast knows, is exceedingly well-spoken and made some great points I wouldn't have ever considered. Hopefully, we'll have her back sometime soon.

(The only component you could add would be to bring on FLY who declares this Disney's worst and a low point in cinema.)

Not a low point in cinema, the low point in cinema. At least the lowest I have seen, and while it's likely there are worse films out there I have yet to discover any. A glorified technical demonstration with less of value than similar 3-D concert films like Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert In 3-D and Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience (which is basically responsible for changing it from 3-D to 3D I believe) that actually offer a bit of concealed insight among the tech demo portions that make up the heft of the film.

Simon liked it, I didn't particularly laugh, but I can see why others like it

This week, on Mousterpiece Cinema, Michael Ryan and I jump once more into the sports-movie fray with the 1993 comedy Cool Runnings. He tried to convince me that the movie is a mix of the Herbie series and the Mighty Ducks trilogy; I'm not sure I buy that combo, but I did find myself enjoying this movie. If nothing else, this episode  (http://www.soundonsight.org/mousterpiece-cinema-episode-42-cool-runnings/)gives us an opportunity to wax philosophic about the life and times of John Candy, as well as discuss the career of Hans Zimmer and movies we've walked out of. Check it out!
