Paul Scheer is a lifelong movie buff, but he's never seen many of the all time greats. On Unspooled, his team-up with film critic Amy Nicholson, he's remedying that by watching the AFI's top 100 movies of all time, to find out what makes classics like Citizen Kane and Taxi Driver so special. Paul & Amy will dissect iconic scenes, talk to artists and industry experts, and discover just how these films got made.

Enjoyable

I love the concept. I was worried Paul would be like he is on How Did This Get Made? where he and the other hosts just yell over each other. However, here is articulate and thoughtful. I would give it five stars if Amy didn’t say “like” every other sentence. But other than that she’s pretty great too.

Not for me

Good grief, how did THIS get made. Maybe add someone that can be critical without also pointing out a ton of stupid crap that doesn't even matter. It's not particularly funny, or witty, or worth taking so much time to discuss.

Amy becomes a pill

The early episodes are amazing, and while I agree with Amy on lack of females on the list, over glorification of war and lack of males emotional bonding. The constant bringing this up has become tired. I think there are smarter ways to bring this up and discuss without ruining the flow of the show.
