This is Spoilers! A pop culture podcast specializing in reviewing movies.
Please check out our Patreon:
Expect retrospective "Movie Review" episodes (about once a week) where one of our hosts chooses the film we’ll discuss. The “Yes or No” segment will rank the movie; the possible flaccidity of Viggo Mortensen's penis will be determined, and trivia will be played to select the next host/movie.
As a bonus, we do additional Spoilers! episodes where we discuss something new in pop culture like: Rick and Morty, Documentary Now, Game of Thrones, what's new in theaters (like Beauty and the Beast or The Boss Baby), Higher, Uncharted (the video game) and our annual Oscar Pick ‘Em Show where we predict who will win the Academy Awards. We celebrate milestones by playing trivia, or getting pap-out drunk and talking about Mel Gibson’s seminal classic “The Passion of the Christ.”
We want to hear from you!

I love these guys.
I stumbled upon this podcast about a year ago when I was wanting to hear something about LoTR… I listened to them talk during my long drive and loved it. Their podcasts are hilarious, sincere, and full of great info! I love to listen to their reviews about things and find myself agreeing or even disagreeing with what they’re saying. Overall a great series that you’ll find yourself listening to over and over again.
Don’t mess with Jimmy the Cricket!!
I love this podcast. Such a fun group of people talking about movies. My favorite spot of the whole podcast is during the punishment episode of “Pinocchio” #365 when they discuss Jimmy the Cricket about 29:30 into the podcast. It’s the funniest two minutes I’ve heard on here, and for a podcast this hilarious, that’s saying something! Also, I second the additions of Brett and Korey from the previous review. The group feels really balanced. Keep it up!
Man these old episodes with this character Vince the intern are a hard listen. He screams and is very annoying. I would love to hear the back story about the rise and fall of Vince. Kylo and Brett are huge upgrades from that annoying baby.
