Join Dan and Brian as they explore films both classic and forgotten and answer the all-important question: Is It Good?

    F for Fake (1973) - A lie that makes us realize the truth

    F for Fake (1973) - A lie that makes us realize the truth

    It's nearly April Fools Day, so Dan and Brian decided to visit Orson Welles' prankster quasi-documentary about art forgery. Join as they take a quick stroll through the famed filmmaker's life and drunken outtakes. Dan praises the film's elliptical continuity, and Brian commits fakery of his own by narrating some of the movie's best quotes in a half-decent Welles impression.

    The Goods is back with its "Violent Ends" feature -- a comparison of two movies with similar setups but very different conclusions.
    This week, Dan and Brian review two movies centered around unconventional teachers at prestigious private schools with secret groups and surprised parents at performances.
    Join as Brian confronts his own feelings on nonconformity and wonders how Dewey Finn wasn't arrested. Meanwhile, Dan bemoans "The Middlebrow Slog" and writes a love letter to Joan Cusack.

    Edge of Tomorrow (2014) - Taste the time blood

    Time Loop "Month" cycles for the final time as Dan and Brian review alien-blasting looper Edge of Tomorrow.

Brian mocks the ineffective mech, while Dan teases out the movies feminist and not-so-feminist themes.

    The Last Day of Summer (2007) - So much time for activities

    In the fourth (and final?) outing of Time Loop Month, Dan and Brian review the 2007 Nickelodeon TV movie The Last Day of Summer, in which Jansen Panettiere and his stupid face relive the titular day over and over. Join as Dan and Brian pay tribute to local festivals and awkward middle school years. Brian sings praises to skater-savant Snake while Dan considers alternate castings for the lead character. (Also the bully's name is Meat.)

    Premature (2014) - Dick time machine

    Premature (2014) - Dick time machine

    Time Loop Month reaches its "climax" as Dan and Brian "beat" into Premature, the raunchy teen comedy where orgasms cause the time loop to repeat. Join as they "come" to the conclusion that Craig Roberts is a breakout star, look "hard" at comparisons to previous Goods subject Some Kind of Wonderful, and "finish off" with a theory about brunettes in time loops. We hope you'll listen to this episode "to completion" as our month-long review of Groundhog Day tributes "beats off"... uh, beats on.

Not Your Average Film Podcast

The Goods is a new film podcast that surprisingly avoids a lot of the pitfalls that new podcasts fall into. First of all the audio is very high quality, especially in the newer episodes. But even in the first few episodes, there is very little background noise (something I am particularly sensitive to) and the hosts come through crisp and clear. The Goods also avoids the common problem of trying to imitate other more succesful podcasts. From the unique rating system they use, to the movies they choose to review, you can tell Brian and Dan are really trying to do their own thing here, and in my opinion it works. I also really appreciate the lack of filler in each episode. Each one is between an hour to an hour and half, but they feel much shorter. They're consistently entertaining and it never feels like the hosts are belaboring a point. Also, no ads whatsoever. Definetely check it out if you're a movie lover.
