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

We have Letterboxd for a reason

I don’t know, if I want to hear “industry professionals” talk about film, then I either want expert film critics, or people who are actually big in the industry. Not sure these guys count at all. Basically just two mediocre dudes talking about their opinions on movies, generally hating everything. Keep it to Letterboxd guys and let’s let actual industry people talk about the state of cinema–look up these guys’ credentials, there’s not much to it.

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.
