Each episode is dedicated to a single film on the AFI TOP 100 MOVIES. Starting at the bottom and working up we discuss the film and why it’s on the list in the first place. We're not professional film critics, just two people who wanted to watch the movies. Our opinions are our own and you should judge accordingly!
AFI Top 100 – BONUS: Microphone Test Clip Show
Wait! We’re back! No, we’re not. Sorry for that lie, but it’s the famed “microphone test” episode we talked so highly about for the last few years! The best moments recorded “off air” have been picked and edited down to... View Article

AFI Top 100 – #02: The Godfather
We review film #2: “The Godfather”…the 1972 classic mob film that teaches you three very important things: 1) It’s not personal, it’s strictly business, 2) leave the gun, take the cannoli, and 3) don’t ask me about my business, Kay.

We review film #3: “Casablanca”…the 1942 film that takes place before Rick becomes the drunkard we see in “African Queen”…but after he’s a detective in San Francisco…
AFI Top 100 – #04: Raging Bull
We review film #4: “Raging Bull”…the 1980 boxing movie that is the antithesis of “ROCKY” in every way imaginable.
please do a better job.
I love the idea about running the afi 100 but the host seem to be blowing it, In blade runner E J Olmos played the other blade runner gaff. they said he played some minor part. Its not a big deal but some people might have a hard time with it. There are a few mistakes like that in there discussions. Also watch the movie no matter how long it is. you've only got a hundred.
I can only assume that the positive reviews are from friends of the hosts because that is probably the only people who would enjoy this podcast. A typical show consists of about 10 minutes of actual talk about the film (conservative estimate). The rest of the time is spent with general nonsense, talk about their personal lives, and a running count of how many times the female host yawns. Apparently the hosts meet to watch the film together and then immediately record the episode afterwards. The lack of preparation shows as most info is read straight from IMDB. The hosts had nothing original to offer about the great silent film “The General “ so they spent the rest of the time reading the from the parent’s guide on IMDB. I commend the hosts for watching all the AFI 100 films but there is nothing of value for classic movie lovers here.
I listened to three episodes and just deleted the series. The hosts spend massive amount of the show goofing around and talking about things other than the movie. In one episode (it’s a wonderful life) the host yawns and complains how tired she is.
