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.

LoFi Top 5 - 72 - The Movie Family Episode
It's November, which means awkward mustaches (nailed it), enjoying the foliage, and emotionally preparing oneself for a blissful family Thanksgiving dinner. That means we’re doing the Top Families in Movies - not to be confused with Top Family Movies nor Top Families in Family Movies. We’re talking about the Hoovers, the Addams, the Burnhams, the Jones’s, the Von Trapps, the Corleones… it’s a family affair! Let’s just all hope that uncle Erik (or as we call him all episode long for reasons unknown… Andy) Killmonger doesn’t show up for turkey.
LoFi Top 5 - 71 - The Cruise Control Episode
This week the LoFiTop5 guys experiment with a new format, “keep or swap.” In each episode, they pick a performer and evaluate their career in film. One of JT or Jeremy will pick the Top 5 Movies to Keep them in, meanwhile the other picks the Top 5 Movies to Swap them with someone else. In this first episode, our Gen X’er will defend 5 of the Cruisiest Tom Cruise performances. Meanwhile, our Millennial host selects 5 of the not-so-Cruisifying moments in his catalog. Our verdict is you can handle this episode.
LoFi Top 5 - 70 - The Mustache Episode
This week it's all about the Upper Lip. The good ol' Snot Mop. The Mouth Brow. In cinema, the Soup Strainer has had a glorious, if not downright majestic career. There have been Pirates with the tiniest of crumb catchers, tokers with Grass Grins, and some internationals with full-on Face Furniture. But no matter the style, both Gen-X Jeremy and Millenial JT can agree that these Lip Rugs really brought these movies together.
LoFi Top 5 - 69 - The Horror Episode
On the eve of Halloween, nothing seems more fitting to sink your teeth into than the Horror movies. As you might know, Jeremy doesn't take much of a Shining to the genre, so the boys took it as an Omen to bring in a ringer for this episode. They did their best to keep the Screams to a minimum, but you might want to find a Quiet Place to listen just in case. Find out just how well Jeremy has avoided Horror movies, and strap in for a family affair on the LoFi Top 5 this week!
LoFi Top 5 - 68 - The Disguise Episode
Whether it's bank robbers wearing ex-presidents’ masks, a princess imitating a bounty hunter, or a man somehow fooling his entire family by dressing up as a foreign nanny, there’s no shortage of clever disguises in movies. Then again, there’s just as many “she cut her hair a little short, but she’s not a boy!” or “single most famous person on the entire planet becomes unrecognizable due to glasses” somewhat-less-clever disguises in movies. Regardless, JT and Jeremy have a great time talking through some of the best (and less best) disguises in movies. But srsly, about that nanny-fooling-the-family thing before - really? Nobody could tell? Cmon.
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.
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.

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.
