Smart & Funny
These guys know what they're doing. I've been listening regularly since the beginning, and the depth of the discussion is great. In particular, the episode on "Forrest Gump" made me think about a movie I've seen maybe a dozen times in a completely new way. In addition, these guys are funny. If you subscribe, you won't be disappointed.
If you love film, this is your podcast
Great way to bring in 2016! I enjoyed how you guys covered the ongoing controversy of the Oscars. When it comes to breaking down film & tv in an insightful and thought provoking way, Moviemakers podcast has it covered! And did I hear a Kendrick Lamar shout out? Haha. But really, it's a good listen.
Entertaining investigation of cinema
The hosts gleefully deliver a weekly discussion on the art of filmmaking that is consistently enjoyable to listen to. It is clear that the hosts truly enjoy the numerous intricacies of visual storytelling in all of its various forms, and each week’s podcast makes the subject of the podcast far more interesting than it otherwise would be.
Overall, a great listen whose only flaw is that they totally ruined the end of Blue Jasmine for me. Jerks.
