Great Commentary

Melvin has some great insights into whichever film he's discussing on any one particular episode. And the episodes are so bite-sized that they're easy to fit into a podcast queue. Have been really enjoying the content and look forward to future episodes.

You won’t want to stop listening!

The Author of Cinematic doctrine, Melvin, takes you in a journey as you not only cover
The movie itself and its forthcomings, but also the underlying meaning behind the film. Melvin relates some personal experiences with the Director’s message within certain films, and shows the listener just how much you can miss upon watching the movie. He is honest in his reviews, yet forgiving. Witty in his references and relations to the movie and the Director, and entertaining without question. Melvin doesn’t just test the waters with his reviews- he dives in. You can’t help but agreeing with his refreshing take on movies as he shows you new ways to look at what you though was familiar. Melvin ties in Morality and his faith along with his take on the film, and it’s both eye opening and intriguing. I found myself sitting and almost binge listening to Cinematic Doctrine. I was eager to see what take he had on some of my favorite movies, and some I hadn’t seen. Did I mention no spoilers? Listen to Cinematic Doctrine now, Sit at the table of Cinema, and eat (taken from the author’s words). And as you seem to forget time passing, you’ll lose yourself on the journey that is Cinematic Doctrine.

Intentional commentary on film and makes valid Christian connections

Melvin takes what he does very seriously and it shows in each episode of CinDoc. I love learning new tidbits of trivia and "making-of" stories while listening to the reviews, and when Christian connections are made in particular episodes they are very well thought out and substantial. Hope to hear more from this guy! c:
