MY TOP 5 MOVIE PODCASTS
I’m sure we can all agree that the MILFcast is the greatest movie podcast on the ol’ intraweb. Unfortunately, you can’t listen to MILF all the time. Though, lord knows you’ve tried. So, I present you with the best of the rest. These are the most entertaining ones I’ve stumbled upon. If you haven’t heard of them, they’re definitely worth your time. Here they are (in order):
SIDENOTE: These are not amateur podcasters. I’ve excluded those so as not to offend any of my podcasting buddies out there. I’ve also left myself off so as to appear as though my ego isn’t as large as it truly is!
5. CREATIVE SCREENWRITING MAGAZINE.
Great for people who love movies. Jeff Goldsmith talks with screenwriters and filmmakers after their newest films are shown in CS’s screening series. He questions them about how they got their start, their past work and then goes in depth regarding the film featured on the episode. What’s great is hearing all the stories about how hard the business is and how BS Hollywood can be. If you’re skeptical, start with the Christopher McQuarrie episode. While his resume (Usual Suspects, Way of the Gun) is small, he has stories to tell and does it for around 2 hours. A great guest and perfect example of what this podcast has to offer.
4. HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON.
This one’s new to me but I absolutely love it. Kevin Smith has slowly built a small podcasting empire. While SMODcast (with Scott Mosier) is fine and dandy, they rarely talk films anymore and get quite sidetracked in general with the exception of their very funny live SMODs. However, this one is all movies and laughs and features Smith with Ralph Garman (of the Kevin & Bean morning show on the world famous KROQ in LA). Garman is one of the few people that can keep up with Smith and make him laugh… and his impressions are amazing. Good times!
You want serious film discussion that doesn’t take itself too serious and won’t put you to sleep? Well then the *slash*filmcast is for you. Hosted by David Chen, with cohosts Davindra and Adam, the /filmcast discusses what they’ve been watching, movie news and a thorough film review discussion complete with a spoiler filled discussion at the end with plenty of warning given if you don’t want the film spoiled for you. /filmcast also has great interviews and guests… they also have an “After Dark” for every episode where they leave the mic on and keep talking film. Entertaining for all but especially for you film geeks out there!
2. DOUG LOVES MOVIES.
Probably my favorite podcast out there because everytime I listen I find myself grinning from ear to ear if not laughing out loud. Host (and comedian) Doug Benson welcomes guests that include everything from comedian buddies to celebrities (like Kevin Pollack, Jerry O’Connell, Elizabeth Shue, etc.). They typically discuss films, make jokes and play the Leonard Maltin game which was big inspiration for our game over at…
If you know me at all, you knew it was coming so wipe that look off of your face. If you don’t know me, then check out my podcast. It’s #1 on some random blog’s list and the intraweb never lies!
