Welcome aboard Too Many Captains, a movie podcast where a motley crew of 4 friends navigate the topic of cinema and related culture. Our flagship episodes are called Deep Dives where we dissect the various compositional elements of a classic or contemporary film and engage in a lively debate on its merits.

Fun perspective on film!
These guys provide a fun perspective on films. It’s a good mix of experts and your everyday fans. Totally worth a download if you’re a film buff, or just like for ideas on something to watch.
These guys are so much fun to listen to. From the Deep Dives to the Captain’s Log, every episode is well done and always good for a few laughs. My personal favorite is the “Another Round” episodes of the show, where we get very imaginary movies with some very real drinks passed around the table! TMC works so hard and you can hear their work paying off every episode. Great work guys!
This show is awesome, I love the brake down of the movies. They do a great job of digging into every aspect of the topics. I also appreciate all the different perspectives from all the hosts( there is a lot of them). The conversation flows nicely throughout witch can be difficult with this many people, but they do it perfectly. Give this show a listen you won’t be disappointed.👍👍
