One of the Best movie Podcasts available

I wanted to find a decent movie podcast and stumbled onto this podcast from across the Atlantic. The first episode I listened to was an analysis of Bram Stokers Dracula and I was hooked. The in-depth analysis and passion for cinema is evident in every episode that covers a wide spectrum of genres from Classic Disney animation to Guillermo Del Toro thrillers. The best episodes are when Sharon and Alex discuss movies themselves and keep the special guests to a minimum.

Insightful and interesting reviews

I found this podcast back in 2014 and binged on the Lord of the Rings episodes. Since I never read the Tolkien books, I found the comparisons between book & film enlightening.

Since these episodes, I have thoroughly enjoyed the Bad Reviews Against Humanity episodes which made me laugh uproariously particularly the episodes which featured the dramatic readings of 50 Shades of Grey excerpts.

I enjoy the guest hosts and hearing their perspectives. While I might not always agree with them; I enjoy listening to Alex and Sharon—particularly their tongue-in-cheek humor as found in their (#189) 300 episode.

Thank you and please keep the episodes coming!

Consistent

Inspired by School of Movies spending an entire cast mocking their detractors, I decided that it was time to give something back to one of the casts that I have been listening to the longest.

I have been listening since, I believe, 2011 or 2013? The 'cast has always been solid, with Alex and Sharon Shaw holding court over well considered panels for their cinematic deep dive discussions. I listen to soooo many podcasts, but there are probably 5 guaranteed weekly listens. SoM is one of them.

My only real complaint has been resolved over time, as Alex's big picture humanity has become relfected more in his little picture humanity.
