Does anyone here listen to film podcasts? What's good?


Fighting in The War Room

The Seventh Art (love that discussion of A Perfect Getaway)

The Cinephiliacs

They Shot Pictures


I think the fatal flaw for film podcasts is spoilers. You can either watch every film – in advance – that a podcast discusses, or you hear half the plot of a bunch of films you might want to watch later.

I like The Commentary Track because it usually takes a broader focus – directors' and actors' careers, historical trends, film studios, etc. Plots points rarely come up because single films are only referenced in passing.


The cinema snob podcast is pretty good



What are these shows about and what do you like about them?


they tend to talk about mostly about shot on video stuff or so bad movies in general and other type of stuff of that sort of film and other related topics

it's entertaining enough to listen 2


Brett Easton Ellis podcast

Hate his books, but his take on film is quite patrician.


>Fighting in the War Room
general releases with a heaver focus on indie/arthouse stuff

good discussions overall

>The Seventh Art

interviews with filmmakers

>The Cinephiliacs

come for the labuz, stay for the guests

>They Shot Pictures

director spotlights


Confessions from the Dark City – Noir podcast which seems to have stopped after 6 episodes. Too bad, because the format and production were excellent by the last episode.

Out of the Past – Another noir podcast. Two professors discuss many of the well-known noirs throughout cinema history.

The Projection Booth – There are a lot of general film discussion podcasts, but I like the range of selections here. They talk about Welles, blaxpolotation, Criterions, Manos. I doubt any other podcast would devote nearly 3½ hours to Waterpower.

The Lost Picture Show – Focuses on "neglected gems". Their episode guide probably contains a few promising titles you missed. Another cool show that has unfortunately stopped.

B-Movie Cast – Huge archive of episodes discussing hundreds of movies, mostly classic scifi and horror.

Hey, I have been listening to How Did this Get made a lot recently.

I haven't felt motivated to watch a lot of films lately, but HDTGM really helps me. Only problem is that they focus on bad movies. The podcast is fun, but I'm getting tired of watching Tyler Perry movies.

Anybody got a alternative, that focus on good films. I have looked around myself and found this:

>Criterion Cast

The films they watch are great. But they mostly talk about stuff related to the criterion release. Image quality and such. The actual film discussion isn't that engaging.

>F This Movie!

Didn't actually listen to it, seeing as they only watched fedora core shit.

So yeah, anybody knows of a good "film club" style podcast.


Shooting Down Pictures is pretty good.

I'm not sure if they would be considered a podcast though




HDTGM is pretty entertaining, although I haven't heard it in a while.

I used to like The Flop House too (a similar podcast). Eventually the host that did 85% of the talking started to get annoying.



Haven't heard many episodes, but I'm liking his recent conversation with director James Gray. Lots of talk about the evolution of filmwatching environments and the atmosphere/storytelling limitations of TV series.


great podcast


File: 1418531654227.jpg (171.29 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, reelnerdspodcastlogo.jpg)

If you aren't looking for super art house/critical acclaim film reviews. The Reel Nerds Podcast is pretty good. They review mainstream movies and oscar stuff primarily. The podcast is mostly about their opinions on other films though. The best part of every episodes is the What We've Been Watching part. Like I said, they don't usually talk about small time stuff but their commentary on bigger films can sometimes be really funny.


File: 1421978565433.jpg (170.79 KB, 622x917, 622:917, diabolik-poster-3-web.jpg)

This soundtrack podcast looks pretty cool.



nice recommendation, i like this. and there seems to be a lot of film talk in between songs.
i also regularly listen to Johnny Trunk's OST Show on resonancefm.


File: 1422895519216.jpg (34.71 KB, 620x372, 5:3, Paul-Thomas-Anderson-As-a-….jpg)


> Director Paul Thomas Anderson joins Marc in the garage for a thorough discussion of each and every one of Paul’s films, including his latest, Inherent Vice. Paul explains his creative process and spills some amazing on-set stories about Boogie Nights, Magnolia, The Master and more.


>The Commentary Track

Earlier this month it had a write-up in HuffPo


> Movies are no longer a curiosity. But being the big art elephant in our culture they are certainly worthy of our curiosity, the desire to understand how they came about, how they were made, what makes them work, and what makes them work on us. Professionally, this curiosity is the stamp of a hardy band of obsessives known as film historians. And in the best of them, that curiosity is melded with great passion and deep love for this now quite sophisticated infant art form. This is a grand thing and deserves to be celebrated.


I've enjoyed listening to the last few episodes of Ben Model's podcast. He composes and performs music for silent films and it's interesting to hear his approach to his work. Lately he's also had successful kickstarter campaigns to get a batch of "new" films on DVD.


I mentioned his fascinating youtube channel in the silent film thread: >>3745


>The Cinephiliacs

I'm just heard this guy on the Masters of Cinema podcast. He made a good impression yet I remain a little skeptical that the academic world of film criticism isn't more than an excuse for longwinded overanalysis.




>The Cinephiliacs

Can you recommend some episodes? I tried a couple and never finished them.

The host is trying to do a Marc Maron thing. But as with Maron, I think younger guests make for boring episodes. They usually don't have enough interesting ideas/experiences to make for a compelling hour+ conversation.



Personally, I love the following episodes:

Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

Matias Pineiro

Dan Sallitt

Gina Telaroli

Andrew Sarris Roundtable

Year-End Roundup (2012/2013/2014)

Kent Jones

Matt Lynch

J. Hoberman

Dave Kehr

Alex Ross Perry

Fernando F. Croce

They all proceed pretty similarly, but I'd say that all of them have something really interesting. The key is just to power through, finish some episodes and see if you like the whole thing. The film discussion at the end of each episode is always enlightening.



Thanks. Part of the problem is I didn't want to listen to discussions of films I haven't seen yet. So the episodes I chose were based on the film rather than the guest, but then the interviews went on forever.

I definitely want to check out people like Kent Jones, so maybe I'll give the podcast another shot (if I can track down Spawn of the North).



He released a James Gray episode yesterday

Anyone here listen to The Audio Assault?



What is The Audio Assault (they aren't big on descriptions) and why should I know about it? It looks like people from twitter talking to each other..

Thanks to the person who recommended The Projection Booth. I especially enjoyed the Logan's Run and Rollerball episodes. They actually interviewed the creators of Logan's Run who are in their mid 80's.

Leonard Maltin has a podcast on earwolf http://www.earwolf.com/show/maltin-on-movies/

I wasn't too impressed when I tried it. Maybe someone else here is a listener.

Movie distributors probably throw all sorts of free stuff at him. He sorts out the good stuff to rave about. I could be wrong, but I get the feeling these movies aren't as awesome as he makes them sound.

Posting Sarandon photos for obvious reasons. Maltin's daughter is the blue haired tattoed lady

Are you fucking serious? You expect us to listen to that liberal faggot?

Go back to reddit you fucking blm cunt.

How is he liberal? I never heard him talk about his political views

The podcast isn't that great from what I heard (it's kind of aimed at plebs) but Maltin is a big name reviewer & writer so I added it to the thread


File: 67f4f00dcf035cb⋯.jpg (33.89 KB, 460x400, 23:20, thescore-logo-460x400.jpg)

Sometimes I listen to a public radio show about film music called The Score. I don't think it's a true podcast, but you can get individual episodes off their site with Download Helper


>The Score with Edmund Stone is a weekly celebration of music in film. With timely box office tie-ins, carefully crafted talk-sets, memorable musical elements and enticing weekly themes all woven together, coupled with expert production aesthetics, The Score is an unparalleled exploration of the musical experience that makes film such an indelible activity.


whats new in podland?



Nice podcast but there have been no new episodes for a long time. The host is knowledgeable but slightly unmotivated. Now he is trying gofundme

You guys might like these. TIFF has 3 different podcasts.


It looks like the two most relevant episodes are interviews with Michael Snow and Frederick Wiseman. If you find other good ones let me know



A24 just started podcasting too.



Reloading the Canon:


They just published their last episode around a week ago which is a shame but it's a really neat show where the two hosts take turns picking out a film that they believe is an underappreciated or hidden classic and discuss it and determine whether or not it should be considered one of the greats.




Cool, all new to me. Thanks guys.

>The Projection Booth

New episode on Sayat Nova


<We're looking at Sergei Parajanov’s The Color of Pomegranates. Released in 1969, the film is something of a look at the life of Armenian ashugh Sayat Nova told in an oblique and beautiful way.

<Director and DP Larry Revene joins Mike to talk about this poetic film. Daniel Bird, director of The World is a Window: The Making of The Color of Pomegranates and James Steffen, the author of The Cinema of Sergei Parajanov, discuss the making of the film as well as the cuts imposed by Russian censors.

<Fox lost much of its history in a famous vault fire in 1937, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York helped save its remaining heritage in the 1970s. Now MOMA is restoring many of the early Fox films using new digital tools, and William Fox Presents: Restorations and Rediscoveries from the Fox Film Corporation is the first part of a two-part retrospective of the studio in its pre-20th Century days, with eye-opening silents and Pre-Codes from the likes of Frank Borzage, John Ford, Howard Hawks, and the forgotten William K. Howard. It runs May 18-June

<I talk with Dave Kehr, curator of film at MOMA, about what made Fox so interesting in this period—from the greater mobility of Movietone over the better-known Vitaphone to a certain lunatics-running-the-asylum atmosphere. (Of course, the bio he talks about at the beginning is Vanda Krefft's; I spoke with her here.) The music and clips in this segment come from 1931's Bad Girl, directed by Frank Borzage, which is available on blu-ray from Kino Lorber.

Great interview where they mention a lot of hidden gems that are being restored. I made note of a few that sounded unique. They also discussed a director who was experimental for early Hollywood, I need to go back and get his name.

They talk about William Fox a little bit too. He had a much more interesting life than I realized, an epic rise and fall. Even though he lost his film company in 1930, the name persevered and of course Fox became a giant media corporation.

High and Low: A Kurosawa Podcast


Joel and Spencer take a Kurosawa picture and compare with it another Japanese film from that same year. It’s both an excuse to watch more old Japanese movies and a way to understand Kurosawa’s films and career. They are not film experts, just 2 friends that enjoy Mr. Kurosawa’s work.


I encourage everyone to check out the ACF podcast which is also available on SoundCloud. It is less a formal approach to technique but more of a cultural and intellectual view of film as a reflection of society and various discourses. Especially love the blade runner episodes.




what does ACF stand for



American cinema foundation. Would’ve known that if you gave the podcast a chance



Been marathoning them at work the shows pretty great check out the ones with Paul Cantor

I listen to Funhaus movie podcast, they're cucks and plebs but it's entertaining



>I went into Reddit, expecting them not to act like Redditors.



I like Blank Check with Griffin and David, but I've learned which episodes to avoid. Basically any movie with mildly political themes or anything with a female guest is guaranteed to be liberal bullshit, which is a shame because the episodes that are just the two of them are pretty funny. Not super insightful or in-depth, but there's some really funny episodes mixed in with all the pozzed virtue signaling crap.



Hey the america cinema foundation ones are good. The host is conservative but he isn't preachy and he does't reeeeee about anything left wing. He sucks the godfathers dick at every available opportunity at every opportunity. The episodes with paul cantor are great and interesting. He made me like breaking bad even more than I already did. Hes very knowledgeable about Shakespeare as well. Give him a shot. I learned about it through this thread and have been loving it



I meant to say at every available opportunity despite it being very left wing
