Phenomenal Philm Pundits!

I’ve always been enamored by the film industry and felt that I have a keen understanding and grasp on storylines, themes, cinematography, etc., but these two cinephiles are not your prototypical film reviewers and definitely breakdown movies on another level! After giving Jason and Ryan a listen, their commentaries turned me onto films I may have never been interested in and/or ones that I had never even heard about prior to their podcast, all whilst making you laugh in the process! What stood out to me after listening to them is that not only are their decompositions of films analytical, critical and elaborate, but the fact that they are not pretentious in their reflection process adds a much needed depth to their podcast. Unlike a majority of film critics that are merely attempting to project their personal viewpoints onto their listeners as the only justifiable analyses of movies, Jason and Ryan come across as very humbled and seemingly get more enjoyment out of reviewing films versus merely just watching them, which keeps their listeners tuned in. Keep up the excellent reviews and I’ll keep listening and looking forward to your next episode!
