A Christian based movie podcast that gets it

This is very much a Christian based podcast, but spiritually doesn’t come up in every episode because it shouldn’t come up in every episode. There’s a lot of Christians who won’t watch movies with anything they object to. These guys don’t do that, and it’s incredibly refreshing.

Fun show with great takes on movies’ deeper spiritual themes

This show has the weirdest / most forced theme of any podcast I’ve listened to (something borrowed, something blew?) but don’t let that stop you from giving it a try. And don’t let Skye constantly calling IMDb “IMBd” stop you either. Also the sometimes kinda cringe Star Wars takes or the overly tribal Marvel vs DC movies takes. Don’t let that stop you either. And also the fact that there’s a segment where they recommend a movie from over 20 years ago, but these guys never seem to watch things over 20 years old, so they almost always say “I don’t actually know if this holds up.”

But for real, joking criticisms aside, it’s a fun podcast that encourages you to think about how what you see in both mainstream and more independent movies can apply to the real world and everyday life. Even when they don’t love the movie they’re discussing, like with Da 5 Bloods, they’ll often still give some really interesting perspectives on its themes that I hadn’t thought about at all. I don’t always agree with these guys, but I like hearing their takes.
