Standup comedians Kevin Gootee and Kevin Israel love films and they love arguing about them. But in this unique podcast; they invite guests to come in and argue why some of the most financially successful, beloved or acclaimed films are trash.  But here's the twist, the film must meet 1 of these criteria: widely beloved, financial success, or critically acclaimed.  So no dunking on Friday the 13th part 8, we all know that's an egregious piece of s--.  We give a platform with those who have unpopular opinions to be bold enough to voice them.  Some films that have faced scrutiny: Back to the Future, the Dark Knight, Toy Story, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the Matrix, and Die Hard.  Can the guests persuade us?  Or do we rip them a new one?  Give us a listen and we'll easily prove that we belong on any top movie podcast list.  No one is doing what we're doing and we're damn good at it.  Everyone loves film debate and who better than 2 wiseasses from NJ?  We throw plenty of fun segments in the mix: our favorite movie quotes, guessing the IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes scores, 5 fun facts, our readers have us ask our guests questions they'd like answered in "Ask a Gutter", we read critics 5 and 1 star reviews and our FAVORITE segment, reading Amazon 5 and 1 star reviews.  You'll never go down a more fun rabbit hole than hearing crazy people asking for refunds while submitting their personal info for payment.  Jeff Bezos isn't reading these comment sections, folks.  We also thoroughly enjoy mocking snooty movie critics and their blowhard reviews.  We get it, you have an English Lit degree.   Kevin and Kevin preside over these cases and see if their guests have made them change their minds or their scores. Check out this podcast dedicated to giving the most hilarious, witty, and funniest movie reviews and discussion you'll ever hear.  We're gonna make you laugh, no doubt about that.We serves you recommendations and commentary on the buzziest movies. Join a rotating cast of guest pop culture aficionados. We leaves room at the table for exploring a range of reactions and opinions on every bit of the pop universe. From lowbrow to highbrow to the stuff in between, they take it all with a shot of cheer.  Specifically, the auteurs whose early successes afforded them the rare ‘blank check’ from Hollywood to produce passion projects. Each new miniseries, we delve into the works of film’s most outsized personalities in painstakingly hilarious detail.  We started with hostile movie discussions and has evolved into hostile informative movie discussions.  We don't always agree, and that's just fine.  We talk about movies the same way you talk about movies and pop culture with your friends.  Sometimes, we'll review movies that are poorly rated on Rotten Tomatoes, and try to ascertain whether or not those movies are accurately poorly rated, or maybe just didn’t get a fair shake.  Sometimes, we'll discuss upcoming movies in the MCU!  Film reviews, TV reviews, and all your conversation around movie and non-movie related stuff. Plus a whole bunch of recommendations to watch in cinemas, on all streaming services and on physical media.  Us movie reviewers break down a variety of film franchises by dedicating a podcast to every single sequel, reboot, and spin-off in a series. In-depth conversations cover production history, literary sources, gossip, merchandising, and personal opinion with humor and critical insight.

    Episode 132: Josh from Films & That DEPORT Borat Episode 132

    One of the most beloved comedies and sketch comedy characters from the last 20 years is Borat.  But fellow countryman to Sacha Baron Cohen is Josh from Films and That believes Borat is as funny as a rubber fist in anus.  Or if you're into that, enjoy!  Maybe Josh just hated how everyone kept saying, "NIIIIICE."  But do Commandant @KevinGootee and Colonel @KevinIsrael_NJ feel that Josh's argument is worse than being stuck in a Pentecostal church?  See if we give this film a rating of iPod Mini or Pamela Anderson in Baywatch.We can't express how thankful we are that you continue to give us an hour of your time every week, thank you!Head on over to www.athelticgreens.com/gtsc  Then, you'll get 5 travel packs along with a year's supply of Vitamin D for FREE.  And it helps us out in the long run!Looking to sell your product, advertise your services, or raise brand awareness?

    1999 was a fantastic year for film and Y2K hysteria.  And for our LIVE SHOW, we invited fan favorites @JoNosuchinsky and @billschulz from @morninbillandjo on @compoundamerica to back.  The duo has selected the 1999 cult classic, Office Space.  Joanne and Bill target the film that provided some most oft repeated office-speak cliches.  But are @KevinGootee and @KevinIsrael hypnotized from their argument and implement a devil may care attitude over 35 pieces of flair?Check us out in the METAVERSE!  That's right, when you're done with pleasuring yourself with a VR helmet on, check us out in the $Joke Comedy club.  We'll eventually do some live AMA and other interactive stuff with you, stay tuned.Head on over to www.athelticgreens.com/gtsc  Then, you'll get 5 travel packs along with a year's supply of Vitamin D for FREE.  And it helps us out in the long run!Don't forget, you can find us on all podcasts platforms: apple iTunes, Spotify, google, spreaker, stitcher, iheartradio, castbox.

Fruity Judy ,

Kevin is great

Kevin Isreal is brilliant, riviting, insightful. Sexy
And interesting.
And Kevin Gottee is his friend

jake_nemeroff ,

Great show!

Accidentally bought for $1.99 and Amazon has yet to refund my account. Decided to checkout the back catalogue. The hosts think they invented the "remote test." The "remote test" will never be part of the cultural zeitgeist.

Nomad7513 ,

Awesome Show!!

This has rocketed to the top of my podcast list. The Kevin’s both are very funny and I enjoy the guest they have on. I recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to laugh their a$$es off.
