Best Film Cast in the universe

Your search is over. Don’t bother listening to any other Film Cast. This is the best Film Cast.

zacman85 ,

Huge fan of everything these guys do!

I have been listening to Jeff, Devindra and Dave for so many years, across all of their various projects. I started listening to Jeff back in the Totally Rad Show days of 2007 (?) and that led me to Devindra and Dave. The Filmcast is by far my favorite series, often helping me identify new shows to watch, which movies to focus on, etc. I love how each host takes a different approach to how they consider movies, often leading to interesting and complex discussions. I also greatly appreciate how they cover all aspects of the viewing experience, including weighing in on any wronging (Film Court), the quality of theaters (FauxMax vs iMax), and even seating positions in the theater. I often wait to hear the spoiler-free review of movies to determine how to best approach seeing the movie, then going to see the movie, and then listening to the second half of the review following it. This is easily my favorite podcast of the week and I am an ardent supporter via Patreon. Money Horse for life!

QTheo99 ,

A great show for every movie buff who cringes a little at the word Cinephile

I have been listening to this podcasts for years at this point, first discovering it while in high school, and cannot understate how great of a listen it is week after week. All three hosts bring in depth and knowledgeable conversation to the weekly review, and the “what we’ve been watching” segments without ever losing the grounded “buds hanging out and catching up” atmosphere that makes it so enjoyable. Keep up the great work!
