The Blue Acorn ,

Five star power.

Tyler and David are great company for each other and their listeners. They can talk in an engaging way about many different subjects in the world of cinema. Just look at some of the topics on the episode titles. They have their habits and hobby-horses, their routines and 'friends of the show'. They churn out a lot of material for free. They are funny men. Occasionally they'll sell you a commentary for the Alien movies or a handful of Slasher movies. It's a measure of how much I enjoy their company that I enjoyed their commentaries of the Lord of the Rings series even though I think those movies are horrible. There are so many movie podcasts available and this is one of the very, very good ones. Subscribe!

Ship of fools

When they actually talk about movies, this is good. Sadly, mixed in with this is double helping of identity politics.

Good friends talk about movies.

I've been listening to these guys or just over a year now, they have quickly become my favourite movie review podcast. The (pretentious) name and the thoughtful film analysis is what got me interested, but it's the wise cracks and friendly banter between the hosts that keeps me coming back for more. Keep up the great work.
