    Reel Roundtable #25 - The Resties (2022)

    Happy New Year!  Another bonus episode for your listening enjoyment as we bring you another Reel Roundtable discussion.  Ethan, Georgia, Ian, and Liam look back on the films they've reviewed in 2022
    Ethan Georgia, Ian, and Liam look back on the films they've reviewed in 2022 and have some less prestigious awards to hand out this week in the form of The Resties.  We all try to stay friends as we debate the worst that we saw in the year that was.  Just because the films are rated highly doesn't mean they're everyone's cup of tea.  (A full list of award categories and eligible films are located at the bottom of these notes)
    Plus, there's a plethora of BFE bloopers from 2022 as we point out some of our own 'Worst of' moments from the past calendar year. 
    If you have any ideas about future actors/actresses or topics for future roundtables, we’d love to hear from you.  Hit us up at @BestFilmEverPod on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  
    This year we're thrilled to have ballots from four of our patrons (Richard, Cheesy, Lena, & Nate) to help determine the winners.

    Episode 158 - Spice World (w/ Megan)

    Episode 158 - Spice World (w/ Megan)

    The headless chicken can only know where he's been. He can't see where he's going. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew: Ian, Liam, Ethan, and Georgia as we spice up our respective lives with "Spice World." We're also joined by our mutual friend Megan who we're not going to ditch as soon as we get in the nightclub.  We're talking matters of intergalactic consent in our 158th episode as we discuss:
    The pushback from some of the listenership about if Spice World is worth our time
    The legacy that Spice World inherits and if gender plays into its own legacy
    What is the impact of the Spice Girls on the younger generation, who don't remember it the first time around
    Whether we feel the infantilization and subsequent sexualization of Emma Bunton is problematic
    Can something be too meta for its own good?
    Why Megan would be a terrible security guard
    Liam and Megan share stories of their trip to see the Spice Girls at Wembley Stadium a few years back 
    Ian shares a story about how no good deed goes unpunished
    Whether or not Spice World is the Best Film Ever

    Which other Friends recurring character debuts this week (he's a total crap-weasel)

    We lament the vocal performance of Matt LeBlanc'

One podcast to file them all?

I listen to an insane amount of podcasts while I work: theology podcast, political podcasts, true crime, long form journalism, and so the list continues! The majority of what I listen to is heavy, weighty topics - but I also love movies! So, I set out to find a movie podcast! The best movie podcast! I landed on this one and have revisited most work days since - scrolling through the backlog until I find an episode that pops out to me!

Half of the movies I don’t recognize - but even those episodes are fun because the dialogue is so great! Every member of the podcast has a unique, fun, meaningful bit to offer. There’s a variety of different formats and I’ve enjoyed the Talking the Mickey crossovers and Cleared for Takeoff episodes!

If you enjoy meaningful dialogue, fun banter, mostly good opinions, (I’m still salty Iron Man wasn’t the crown jewel of the show - I have a soft spot for that movie) and some education in movie trivia, film technique, and 3 hours of material per some episodes (Heyooo Django Unchained episode I had to restart 4 times until I finally finished!) to pass the slog of a 8-5 by quick etc. this is definitely a podcast for you!

I love movie podcasts….

But it seemed like it took quite a while for these guys to get past the banter and to the movie itself. Also, 2,5 hours is a loooong time to expect people to listen, esp on an episode about a film as simple as Aur Force One. Keep up the good work, guys, but try to get to it sooner, and edit out (some of) the stuff that’s unnecessary.

A great movie podcast

This podcast is great! All movie fans can get something out of this podcast! I personally love the quiz shows and the round tables. Not to mention they have reviews of movies and tv! Honestly it is a one stop shop for all your entertainment needs! I’m telling you, this is such a fun listen !
