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 - 97 - The Movie on Airplane Episode
It's been a while as the boys have been doing some summer traveling, and, as tends to happen, that spawned an idea for an episode. You've got a long flight ahead of you, the plane's wifi is garbage so no work to be done, but you've got your trusty iPad and the in-flight entertainment; what's your go to movie? This week, Gen-X Jer and Millenial JT go deep into what it takes to be a good plane movie. Rules are broken, discussions had, lists made, but most importantly the boys of summer are BACK!
LoFi Top 5 - 96 - The Time Travel Episode
This week the boys are hopping through time to pull out the best of the best in time travel films. Whether looking back to the future, or thinking about days of future past, this week is filled with wormholes and timelines and phonebooths? Some rules of time travel may be broken, and rules about the podcast most certainly will be, so join Gen-X Jer and Millenial JT in this timeline or another for another riveting LoFi Top 5!
LoFi Top 5 - 95 - The Dad's in Movies Episode
Whether it's Pops, Padre, Daddio or Dad (but not Father, ammirite!) last weekend was the time to celebrate all things Dad. So much so that the LoFi boys were out in the world being celebrated. But worry not, while gone they were thinking of all the Cinema-Dads out there and trying to comb through which would be the best. From ballroom dancing to deep-sea swimming, all these movie Dads have a particular set of skills that are sure to leave you feeling the love. So throw on your cargo shorts, lace up those New balances and grab a cold one for the Dad's in movie episode!
LoFi Top 5 - 94 - The Pride Episode
This week the boys are celebrating Pride Month! The impact the LGBTQ+ community has had on the arts is nothing short of astounding, so the LoFi guys are talking about the Top 5 movies that highlight members of or concepts from that community on this week's episode. From Happy to Heartbreaking, Jeremy and JT discuss the learnings and lessons taken from these films and just how important representation truly is. Happy Pride everyone!
LoFi Top 5 - 93 - The 80's RomCom Episode
This week the spinning wheel of evil is back as the boys had to pivot from their original idea. And what does the wheel bring? Chaos for the JT the millenial, less so for the Gen-Xer Jeremy. But even with the 1980s being squarely in Jeremy's wheelhouse, the amount of RomCom's to choose from might surprise you. So whether you're sitting down with your Breakfast Club (is it a RomCom??) or grabbing some Mystic Pizza, let's see if the boys Say Anything that makes a Splash.
LoFi Top 5 - 92 - The Party Episode
It's that time of year folks. Graduation. Summer birthdays. Memorial Day. It's PARTY TIME! So this week the LoFi boys are tackling the best parties ever thrown in cinema. Togas, Glow sticks, Fish tanks, Lasagna - what doesn't this episode have! So honey put on that party dress and mambo your way into another installment of the LoFi Top 5.
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?
