The creators of The Music Snobs present SNOBS ON FILM, the podcast where movies and television are discussed and reviewed with care—and debated without caution. Get ready for a non-Hollywood ending.
The Music Snobs on Film
For the first time ever, The Music Snobs meets Snobs On Film in one unforgettable episode to celebrate both podcasts’ season finales!!! Listen as the Snobs combine the two shows to go deep on the (im)perfect marriage of cinema and sound. The crew explores the natural relationship between music and movies while questioning which artform impacts the audience the most. The ensuing debate inevitably leads to a wild roundtable: What movie soundtrack do you absolutely love even though you have no desire to ever see the movie again?
Do the Right Thing
It’s been 30 years since Da Mayor told Mookie to, “Always do the right thing,” in Spike Lee’s masterful third film. In this riveting episode of SOF the fellas take a look at ‘Do the Right Thing’ and ask: exactly what is the right thing? And after three decades, what’s our response to this movie’s character arcs and the layers of storytelling that combine to form one of cinema’s most iconic pressure-cookers? Before the episode ends the crew will also take time to debate the film’s climax and themes by wondering: What if Radio Raheem had not been killed?
Black Action Heroes
From Pam Grier to The Rock, a pantheon of black action heroes can be found in Hollywood’s past and present. On this episode of Snobs On Film, the crew examines the impact that POC actors have had on the action genre and (of course) asks an uncomfortable question: why has the film industry and the public been so much more accepting of black actors as leads in action films than in dramas? Afterwards, the Snobs kickoff a memorable round table discussion by challenging each other to name an action flick and the POC sidekick within it who would have made a better lead than the film’s white star.
The Beginning and Endgame of the MCU
After a decade of blockbuster films and last year’s record-breaking Infinity War, it’s time for Snobs On Film to go deep on Avengers: Endgame and examine the unprecedented success—and question the impact—of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Can the studio maintain its dominance? Has the MCU been a boost for the film industry, or is it the bane of modern cinema? The crew explores these issues and more, wrapping things up with an intriguing roundtable: What comic book film would you recommend to someone who hates comic book films?
Is This ‘Us’?
Snobs On Film takes a look at the rise of Jordan Peele, Barry Jenkins, and films like ‘Sorry to Bother You’, and wonders: are people of color being better represented by today’s unconventional storytelling than by the hyper-realism of classics like ‘Menace II Society’ and ‘Boyz N the Hood’? Afterwards, the crew gets inspired by Peele’s newest film during a roundtable that gives each Snob a multiple choice: name the one movie character who could actually be your doppelgänger.
[Note: This episode was recorded prior to John Singleton’s untimely passing.]
As filming begins on the franchise’s 25th installment and we near the end of Daniel Craig’s epic run as James Bond, a certain question has come to mind concerning our favorite secret agent. In the era of #metoo, “diversity”, and Hollywood shake ups—does this mean #BondToo? Join us as SOF takes a look at the Craig films and discusses how a feminist present will impact the future of cinema’s most celebrated “misogynistic dinosaur”.
