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.

The Stanley Kubrick of Podcasts

Amy Nicholson and Paul Scheer have crafted a podcast that is deserving of the great movies they discuss. A perfect blend of insight and humor without pretension.

If (when) the future gives us an American Podcast Institute, Unspooled will reign supreme.

Reviewers admit they haven’t seen most of classics

Frustrating to listen to so-called critics who routinely admit they haven’t seen a lot of the top 100 films. This is a big tell they also haven’t watched a lot of other films from prior eras as well, which reflects they lack a depth of knowledge of our country’s rich film history. Biased toward movies they saw while growing up. And routinely dismissing films from glory days of Hollywood. Should be call millennials whining. The female host seems to hate with some bizarre feminist bent any movies involving men. I tried with this podcast. I really tried. Listed to a number of them. Do not recommend. They should instead stop their podcast and dedicate the next ten years of their lives studying films of our country’s history so they can offer informed opinions more than ... insert valley girl voice ... this movie is toooo looooong.

CAN WE PLEASE HAVE MIKE CHADWAY AKA GERARD BUTLER FROM THE UGLY TRUTH JUMP IN AND EXPLAIN WHY MOVIES WITH MALE LEADS ARE VERY BELOVED!? STOP WITH THE MAN HATING PLEASE!
