I like this podcast

There’s too many podcasts out there of people not in the industry/want to be in the industry/got kicked out of the industry/can’t make it in the industry/dream of making it in the industry who are commenting on the industry. Now, the ones who ARE in the industry, whether journalists or professionals, they all seem like they review movies and TV like they are talking about their friends, and all seems so fake. Not this podcast. These two guys, who are professionals in their field, just tell it like it is— There was no point for West Side Story. George Clooney is not as great as he told you he is.

The ONLY thing I disagree with so far is their take on Spiderman: No Way Home (or “How I sacrificed my aunt to get my friends into MIT”) And granted, I’ve only been listening for a couple months. But, I agree with most of what they say. And if I agree, how can I not like? -Spro

Good listening for both film buffs/novices

For those looking to gain insight into the film industry, this podcast offers a unique perspective that’s easy to follow for both novices and cinephiles. After listening, I watch/evaluate films differently. Mike and Barry’s friendship lends an approachable/fun backdrop for their discussions.

just another poor-quality covid podcast

honestly, i have never felt compelled to leave a bad review in my life, but sheesh, these guys are truly something else. i feel like we need to start requiring a degree of experience for people running podcasts nowadays? like the number of people who just start them and think they have any degree of authority or know-how on a subject, while in reality having none, is truly astonishing. these guys (who barely have any credible experience in the film industry, look them up on imdb, it’s all b-list films at best) have a lot of opinions…………but who cares? i’d listen to this podcast if it were someone like steven spielberg, who has the experience they seem to think they have- or even roger ebert, whose opinion matters (and who at least has interesting things to say). but two guys who got bored during the pandemic? i don’t need to actively seek out guys who think their opinions matter–spend five seconds talking to any self-professed film geek guy at a bar and he’ll say the exact same stuff these guys do–except maybe you’ll get a free drink from the tedium.
