Brett Stewart, Nicole Davis, and David Luzader delve deep into a bevy of unique films by utilizing a rotating thematic calendar.

    101: Paris, Texas

    101: Paris, Texas

    In this New to Two, Brett  brought us Wim Wenders’ Paris, Texas. This slow-paced showcase for Harry Dean Stanton is about a man named Travis, and his journey to reconnect with his son, with himself, and with his estranged wife. Music by Ry Cooder adds that “lonesome West” vibe. We pondered questions like: Why does his brother leave him alone? Who spoiled this kid so much he doesn’t want to use his own feet? Does Travis ever find redemption? And what did David and Nicole think of it all?

    100: Twilight

    100: Twilight

    In this You Did This to Us, our 100th episode, the audience made us watch Twilight. This 2008 mega-sensation took our youth by storm when it brought Stephanie Meyer's books to the silver screen. 12 years later, how does this film stand the test of time? Does Meyer understand how baseball is played? What's the point of endlessly going to high school every four years and what about this toxic relationship speaks to fans? Also, did we break David?

    99: Throne of Blood

    99: Throne of Blood

    In this Around the World, Brett brought the panel's first Akira Kurosawa film to the table, 1957's Throne of Blood. This iconic chapter in the long history of Shakespeare adaptations in film brought the story of Macbeth to feudal Japan. How well do the themes translate, and is there anything lost or gained by not using Shakespeare's original dialogue? Why is this film so widely regarded as one of Kurosawa's crowning achievements? David, Nicole, and Brett discuss all of this, all while marveling at the enduring creepiness of Isuzu Yamada as Lady Macbeth.

    98: The Master

    98: The Master

    In this Future Classics, Nicole nominated 2012's The Master. Joaquin Phoenix plays a broken man (he must enjoy that sort of thing) who falls in with a self-improvement movement (cult) that is totally not Scientology; Phillip Seymour Hoffman plays the charismatic leader who is totally not based on L. Ron Hubbard. Brett, David, and Nicole discuss the performances, the score, the strengths and weaknesses of the writing, and that infamous scene at the sink. Come join us -- don't you want to reach your full potential?

    97: Dolemite Is My Name (+ Dolemite)

    97: Dolemite Is My Name (+ Dolemite)

    This Netflix Roulette comes with a bonus discussion of the 1975 film, Dolemite! This Netflix movie is a biopic of Rudy Ray Moore and the making of Dolemite. Moore, played with flair by Eddie Murphy, was a singer/record store clerk/comedian who was tired of hustling for the the career he was confident he could carry off. Inspired by the poetic riffing of the local homeless population, Moore came up with a hook and a look that finally brought him fame. How well was his story told? And what did we think of the most (in)famous product of his hard work? Tune in to hear our discussion of Dolemite Is My Name!

    96: Tokyo Godfathers

    96: Tokyo Godfathers

    On this New to Two, David introduced Brett and Nicole to a Christmas-themed anime film from 2003, Satoshi Kon's Tokyo Godfathers. The emotional journey of three homeless people on Christmas in pursuit of an abandoned baby's family spurred discussion of the genre of anime, context that gets lost in translation when films are subtitled, a bizarre subplot with the Yakuza, and so much more. How did Brett and Nicole enjoy this nontraditional Christmastime tale? Tune in now and find out!

The way it's done

Look, I do a movie review podcast myself (totally subjective term) and it doesn't come close to the kind of insightful discussion that Nicole, Brett, and David bring to the table every episode. They are funny, they are intelligent, and they are great at what they do. This show gets my highest recommendation.

Great show with amazing hosts!

Movie Go Round is my favorite show to listen to currently, usually on my way to work. The hosts are funny, smart and the three of them make a great team. I love the rotating themes of the show as it makes for a different conversation each week. It’s fun to follow along with the movies they watch and see which host you side with the most. But I also like that you don’t necessarily need to see the movie to follow along with the conversation. It’s a unique and fun podcast that any movie lover would enjoy!

Each host is quirky in their own way

I started listsenig to Movie Go Round awhile back, around episode 30. Fun discussions. Love voting on the films we get to choose for them. (Go Emoji Movie!) David is hilarious, Brett's insight into things like music-related stuff, and Nicole's articulate assessements make them a pretty dynamic trio. I'd recommend the show if you're looking to be introduced to some new flicks or laugh off the bad ones they have to watch.
