Welcome to "Three Films and a Podcast", a show where three friends work their way through unseen movies in a unique, rotating format. The story behind the podcast is we got tired of rewatching the same things over and over, so we decided to challenge each other to push our movie watching horizons further than we ever had.

Join Tyler Beck, Matt Weiler and Ben Lawhorn as we discuss three movies that are tied together through a special qualifier in each round.

    This week we finish our final trilogy round, The Dollars Trilogy, with Sergio Leone's "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly".

    Does  this movie give us the greatest Mexican standoff of all time? Is it the best ending to a trilogy? And accidentally blowing up a bridge!?

    'A Fistful of Dollars': Inventing the Spaghetti Western (The Dollars Trilogy) - EPISODE 64

    'A Fistful of Dollars': Inventing the Spaghetti Western (The Dollars Trilogy) - EPISODE 64

    "When a man's got money in his pocket he begins to appreciate peace."

    This week we are kicking off our final trilogy round, The Dollars Trilogy, with Sergio Leone's "A Fistful of Dollars".

    How does this compare to Kurosawa's "Yojimbo"? Does young Clint Eastwood have the same power that old Clint does? And if we couldn't have Clint, who would we want? (Hint: it's a Tim and Eric character)

    We talk about all of this, along with drafting our Clint Eastwood Rushmore Mountain, in the episode!

    Meet Noor-Hal! (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) - CLUBHOUSE GUEST

    Meet Noor-Hal! (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) - CLUBHOUSE GUEST

    Meet Noor-Hal! She is a long-time contributor to The Geeky Waffle Network and runs a great YouTube channel filled with cover songs, and so much more!

    Noor-Hal was nice enough to join us for our 'Return of the King' episode, but before we got into the discussion, we put her to the test with our round of Clubhouse questions to get to know her a little better. So hang out with us for a bit as we talk about the works of the one and only George Lucas! We also chat about watching 'The Last Jedi' for the first time and a movie starring Sally Field, Dolly Parton, a very young Julia Roberts and more, that doesn't get enough attention!

BethanneT ,

Excellent movie podcast

The crew behind Three Films and a Podcast are not only excellent commentators and knowledgeable, but have an amazing rapport!

Fun and entertaining group of guys!

I just listened to my first episode and I really enjoyed their dynamic! I will definitely be tuning into more of their content! Something to consider; maybe a little more structure. I still enjoyed the meandering path of the conversation and it still flowed but again, just something to consider! Although perhaps other episodes are more structured - I haven’t listened yet.

A Really STAND OUT Movie Cast!

Hooked right away! You’ve got some passionate film fans who also have a strong command of the subject matter to back it up. Hosts are really knowledgeable and insightful, offering a comprehensive, thoughtful discussion with great pacing. Love how they place each movie within the context of film history and theory and can deftly talk about the art of filmmaking as well as technical aspects, and even some movie marketing elements, a new favorite!
