Every episode, hosts Jeremy Toeman (@jtoeman, representing #genx) and JT White (@thebsideoflife our #millennial) take on a unique #LoFi Top 5 list, with an assemblage of nostalgia and some surprising insights into filmmaking and storytelling. Their ever-evolving format includes "the Shawshank" (the undebatable category definer), a guess-that-movie-by-a-five-word-description game, and a few rounds of "contender pong" for all the entries that didn't make the Top Five final list. Also: the podcast formerly known as Wingman Daily
LoFi Top 5 - 67 - The Buddy Movie Episode
Whether it's seven college friends having a reunion, five dudes cruising around LA looking for a good party, four pals in search of a dead body, or three friends fighting a plethora of gangs in Mexico, when buddies hang out, good times typically ensue. This could also take the form of inanimate objects meeting a new inanimate object or eight kids teaching a ninth how to properly play baseball (and fend off killer dogs). Whatever the occasion may be, rest assured that JT, Jeremy, and their good buddies are always up to discuss the best… buddy… movies.
LoFi Top 5 - 66 - The Movie Lawyers Episode
It's time for another Top 5 list with the Honorable JT's presiding. This week the boys appeal to your more serious side, walking through the Top 5 Movie Lawyers ever to grace a screen. You might think it's the usual suspects, but when a few good men sit down to discuss the law in film, it can be a runaway jury...but we'll let you be the judge.
LoFi Top 5 - 65 - The First Time Director Episode
While most film geeks like us know Citizen Kane was Orson Welles’ first feature film (though there’s a technicality and we talk about it), even we were surprised to discover some other absolutely amazing directorial debuts. In this episode, JT and Jeremy cover their top 5 favorite firsts, including some works by Rob Reiner, Sidney Lumet, John Huston, and even the legendary, the phenomenal, the master of Bayhem - Michael Bay. Also, enjoy a quickie game where Jeremy quizzes JT on some phenomenal *second* films by directors.
LoFi Top 5 - 64 - The Food in Movies Episode
We hope you have a healthy appetite for the latest episode - Top 5 Foodie Movies! As much as we pictured making lists of top food-related movies would be like a fancy breakfast buffet, it ended up a little closer to the high school cafeteria as far as healthy options go. JT summoned a few millennial-oriented tasty treats, while Jeremy struggled to find any generation x-themed movie to chew on. But the guys have a good time, it’s a satisfying meal/listen, and we discovered that basically everyone loves Chef. Enjoy!
LoFi Top 5 - 63 - The High School Movie Episode
We’ll bet you can't hardly wait for this week’s episode, which is definitely not another teen movie podcast - or is it? There are fast times ahead as your not-so clueless hosts debate their Top 5 High School movies. These lists are so good they’ll make you want to scream for a piece of American pie. With or without a cause, you can rebel against our choices, even if you’d be better off dead than getting caught revisiting your high school years.
LoFi Top 5 - 62 - The Quick Fire MCU Episode
With the recent releases of Black Widow and Shang-Chi, your hosts decided it was time to have an episode about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. BUT, given there are two MORE MCU movies still yet to come in 2021, rather than a typical Top 5 ranking, we’re having a little fun. Instead of our traditional ranking, we’re making five different categories to dive into. Join us to discuss the Best Side-Character, the Best End-Credits Scene, the Best Duo, the Best non-Thanos Villain, and the Best Gag/Funniest Moment. Also this week we have a very special guest joining for the discussion!
Fast talking, encyclopedic coverage
Take two knowledgeable, opinionated uber-movie-fans and have them riff on a seemingly infinite number of Top 5 categories. Whether you agree with their ranking or not, each podcast will gift you with half a dozen titles that you must absolutely rush to Netflix or Amazon to see. Who doesn’t love that kind of curation?
Know your movies?
What a fun and unique podcast! JT and JT have an honest and enjoyable view about films and a unique way of including and challenging their audience each week. This is a must for podcast fans.
I had the time of my life!
Movie nerds are my people!
I love how playful and fun this show is.
It’s a refreshing podcast on my feed filled with too much doom and gloom.
