On The Next Reel, co-hosts Andy Nelson and Pete Wright discuss one movie at length, from its origins to its performance and everything in between. Part of The Next Reel family of film podcasts.
A Quick Note From Andy
We’re taking an unexpected short break but we’ll be back before you know it!
We conclude our series on Hong Kong New Wave director Ann Hui and kick off a series on journalists with Hui’s 1982 film ‘Boat People,’ the film that really put her on the map. How does it work for us? Does it accurately portray journalists? And does that matter? Tune in to hear our thoughts!
Our Time Will Come
We’re continuing our series on Hong Kong New Wave director Ann Hui. In this episode, we discuss her 2017 war drama ‘Our Time Will Come.’ How historical is it? What do we think of the documentary framing device? And what do we think overall? Tune in to find out!
The How to Split a Toaster Divorce Hollywood Holiday Special • CROSSOVER!
Happy New Year! Each year on the podcast How to Split a Toaster: A Divorce Podcast about Saving Your Relationships, we take a break and talk about how movies deal with divorce and the law. This year, in our season break, we brought the team together to talk about divorce in the movies. From hyper-stylized to hyper-real, how well do filmmakers capture divorce? Andy and Pete join host and attorney Seth Nelson as we build our divorce movie watchlist!
Song of the Exile
We continue exploring the films of Hong Kong filmmaker Ann Hui with her 1990 film ‘Song of the Exile’ starring Maggie Cheung and Lu Hsiao-fen. It’s a mother/daughter story that explores family history, family secrets, and finding connections, but does it work for us? Tune in to this episode to find out!
We close out our 10-part 10 Year Anniversary series – all in part of celebrating our 10 years of podcasting – with a holiday treat. We’re looking at Sarah Smith’s 2011 film ‘Arthur Christmas.’ It’s an absolute delight of a film with a voice cast that brings their A-game headed by James McAvoy. Will this turn into your own annual treat? Check it out this holiday season then tune in!
Friendly, Knowledgeable Hosts
I discovered this podcast through Andy’s guest appearances on The Most Excellent 80’s Movies Podcast. He was a great guest, and was so well informed about the movies, and articulated his knowledge and opinions well. I figured his own podcast would be worth a listen, and this proved true! Pete is just as knowledgeable and articulate. They both have a great sense of humor, as well.
Two great guys and a great podcast!
I love listening to Pete and Andy because it is so clear they love what they’re doing. Thank goodness this feed is finally split out from their other shows. :-)
I love this! Because you introduce me to great new films
