Hi, my name is Andrew, and I watch movies. I have watched thousands of movies in my life, and enjoy writing, and talking about them. There is no discrimination based on genre or age here, I watch 'em all, and podcast about them. Sometimes, I even watch the movies with other people, and have an after movie conversations on the show. I hope everyone enjoys the evolution of this podcast, and our journey through the film world together. Let's start the conversation!
Join Andrew for a trip to the theater for the new horror film Smile. Will we still be Smiling after exiting the film? Tune in to find out.
We Need to Talk About Woody (I think)
Alright, here we go. In our society, there is a constant debate surrounding the personal sins of creators, and how it effects the audience perception of the film. People doing heinous things isn't something to be celebrated, but it can be explored in a safe space. Often times, the work of these creators is confessional and can be mined for red flags.
The other side of things, especially with Woody, is that many performers did their best work in his films. Mia Farrow, Diane Keaton, and Diane Wiest will be the focus for the majority of this episode. We will be talking about Woody, but more as an artist than his documented misdeeds. This is not to discredit any victim, but just to try to talk about things from a different perspective. I hope that this episode is successful in doing so.

Falling for your dad- Mrs Harris, Fall, and I Love My Dad
Not every movie is gonna click with every viewer. Today, we have a few movies on deck, and one just didn't hit it out of the park. Tune in for conversations on Mrs Harris Goes to Paris, Fall, and the cringe comedy I Love My Dad. Also incluedes a short discussion on The Toy starring Richard Pryor. That was a first time watch on HBOMAX, and is a risky recommendation.
Spoiler Free-- Only Two Survive- Bodies Bodies Bodies, Emily the Criminal, or Pizzagate Massacre
Three movies walk into a bar. Two of them are there to party; to have a fantastic time. One of them is filled with characters more annoying than anyone in The Blair Witch Project or The Babadook. Two of them decide that one gotta go, and they bounce them from the bar. The three movies are Bodies Bodies Bodies, Pizzagate Massacre, and Emily the Criminal. The one that gets ejected might surprise you. Join Andrew for a spoiler free discussion on all three. Stick around after for a special message from Ice-T and Body Count.
Fishing the Stream-- Prey, Belle, and Not Ok
Today we are gonna talk about 3 movies that are streaming now and are worth your time. Not OK and Prey are streaming on Hulu. It's a shame that Prey isn't a theatrical release, but it is still a captivating action film on your at home setup. Try to watch the Comanche dub version of the film, it is a richer experience. Not OK is also a very good comedy that goes down smooth.
HBO Max debuted the movie Belle last week. I should have seen that in theaters, but didn't find the time. Even if you aren't a fan of Anime, this is one that should be given a chance. It transcends the medium, and is more than worth your time.
As always, I appreciate all of you who listen, and even appreciate those of you who don't.
Join Andrew for a discussion about an adorable little shell with some pretty slick shoes on. Been waiting to see this for a while.
met ur dad
soooo sat next to ur dad one night in ft lauderdale and he told me about andrew... love this! and ur dad is really cool!
So much movie knowledge.
This isn't just Andrew Watches Movies, it's Jess and Andrew Watch movies.
Anyway, these two watch a ton of movies which gives them great insight and context . They are especially fond of horror movies, as am I, so you might get a deep dive on Mario Bava in one episode, then some Kubrick in another. They also regularly review movies currently in the theaters without spoiling them, so it is also a great current resource, not just a place to discover great older movies.
Lots of movie goodness for all!
On top of it
After listening to a few episodes Andrew Martin has his pulse on movies. It has been a valuable resource to discover new lesser known or movies on streaming services. He fills some of the gaps left by other movie podcasts I listen to, leaning towards some horror and indie movies.
