    Scream (2022)

    What do you mean you like TikTok more than scary movies?!

    Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courtney Cox are ready to Scream for the fifth and possibly final time as a serial killer in a Ghostface mask terrorizes a new generation of self-aware Woodsboro horror enthusists. Is the 25-year-old franchise still capable of pulling off big surprises like that initial, infamous phone call to Drew Barrymore?  And will the new directors enrage or bore Wes Craven purists by slipping some of that fancy pants “elevated horror” into the slasher formula?  Find out if this “re-quel” proves legendary when you Listen Now.

    Dolan’s Cadillac

    Cats

    Cats

    Cats did not land on its feet when family audiences tossed it from cinemas and into street traffic on Christmas 2019. How did Andrew Lloyd Webber’s blockbuster Broadway musical become such a hairball of a film? Jakob, Arnie, and Stuart are ready to dig their claws into every sour note of this “cat-tastrophy” - from the feral milk and catnip orgies, to Jennifer Hudson and Taylor Swift’s horrifying digital fur makeovers, to Rebel Wilson swallowing a chorus line of cockroaches. You’ll have a jellicle ball too when you become a December Now Playing Patron.

And were the spoiler-phobic right to avoid all social media before watching?  Find out on another unforgettable Marvel podcast.

Yes

If you want a podcast that will point out all the details, explain everything you were confused about, and to give great reviews and comments about some of your favourite movies then this would be a great podcast for you. I’ve listened to these for years but was a little late to the party. Makes a great entertainment while running or working. I used to talk to myself a lot since I work alone but this was a great solution.

My favorite film podcast

I've been a listener of Now Playing Podcast since 2014. I came across them at random after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy in the theater. I didn't immediately love the show, but I did love their format for the discussion and I thought they had a good conversation. So I checked out some of their other shows over the next year or so, and now 7 years later I've watched hundreds of films just so I can listen to more of their shows, and I actively watch along with their selections, even on franchises I had no interest in, or have to suffer through because there are so many bad entries. Their coverage is so entertaining, it makes watching terrible movies worth it.
They cover an extremely wide variety of films, balancing mainstream hollywood hits, classics of various genres, as well as looking at some obscure oddities. Their patreon feed has opened the doors from their limitation of mainly covering franchises, meaning that their film selection is actually now at the best it's ever been. Highly highly endorse this podcast.

excellent series

if you want a well-researched but mostly-lighthearted critique of popular film franchises, this should be your goto.
