Overrated is a film podcast released every two weeks. In each episode, Joe and Alan will talk about an overrated film and then recommend another film with similar themes or concepts.
Christmas Special (2018) - A Christmas Carol (1951)
It's our third annual Christmas episode and we're discussing A Christmas Carol (AKA Scrooge), starring Alastair Sim. Is it as much of a holiday humbug as Alan says it is? As his replacement film, Alan will take us to where the rainbow ends with his favorite holiday flick!
Episode 044 - The Dark Knight
We're talking comic book movies again on Overrated- this time we take on the crown jewel (the size of a tangerine) of the DC cinematic universe. In this episode Joe will illustrate why Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight was the gritty, realistic take on comic book superheroes that audiences needed, but not the one they deserved. Holy Overrated, Batman! Will Joe come up with a rock-solid replacement superhero movie? Will Alan agree with him? Will this be our most controversial episode yet? The only way to find out is to tune into this episode of Overrated, same bat-time, same bat-podcast!
Episode 043 - Citizen Kane
There is a certain film which critics have heralded as the greatest American picture of all time. Yes, it's none other than Citizen Kane, and Alan has agreed to take on this cinematic titan for our two year anniversary episode. Hold on to your milkshakes because Alan's replacement will give Welles' breakthrough film quite a bit of competition!
Halloween Special (2018) - The Goonies
Our 2018 Halloween episode has Joe selecting perennial childhood fave The Goonies. Does it hold up as an action/adventure piece for kids and adults? Join us to decide for yourself, and stick around as Joe's replacement pick has another gang of kids going nards to the wall in the 80s.
Episode 042 - Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (with Thom Ernst)
Guess who's coming to podcast? It's none other than Thom Ernst, former host and producer of TVO's Saturday Night at the Movies and current host of This Movie's About You. Thom dropped in to discuss the Sidney Poitier classic Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Does it stand up as a socially conscious, progressive piece of cinema, or has the passage of time diminished its relevance? Thom's replacement pick is a recent film that's been hailed as an instant classic in its own right, so get out those earbuds and have a listen!
Episode 041 - Saw (with Matt Pfaff)
The inimitable and fearless Matt Pfaff joins us in Joe's apartment to answer some questions and help piece together the puzzles of James Wan's Saw (2004). Why did it become one of the most popular horror franchises of all time? Is Danny Glover too old for this shit? Why does Joe wear cloaks during our recordings? Matt also suggests a humdinger for his replacement pick; a little known indie film that made us wonder if we were watching it, or if it was watching us.
Film Talk for the Masses
These dudes just get it! Great talks, great connection, love every time I see an episode show up on my feed.
Overrated Is Underrated!!!
Don't go nowhere else for any of them other movie and film podcasts! Them folk don't know what they be talkin' about. Joe and his crew do! I listen regularly and so should you. Now clean out all them there other inferior cinemagraphic podcasts from your bookmarks and stick with the one that 4 out of 5 ******insert professional occupation here****** recommends: OVERRATED!
5/5 would pod again. Joe speaks with the fire and tenacity of a young Herbert Hoover. Very interesting and insightful movie discussion every episode.
