Certainly I was sufficiently insecure to have felt the need to establish to my own satisfaction before the age of 33 whether or not humans can fly. If that makes me a chippy little autodidact in your eyes then so be it.

There are lots of podcasts about movies and this is the thread for them.

The hosts (four-ish guys in NYC) are both funny and pretty informative, and they tend to talk about movies that are a little less covered by the other bad movie podcasts. Any episode featuring a Jim Belushi, Michael Caine, Wilford Brimley, or a Gary Busey movie is a good starting point.

bobservo posted:

We Hate Movies is fantastic. I initially didn't think I was going to like it because the main host (Andrew Jupin) plays up his anger a little too much, but they do a great job of staying on topic and mining the tiniest logical fallacies out of any movie.

OK Octopus posted:

I really love We Hate Movies. Their big celebratory episode with Crystal Skull where they had all the hosts on at once was amazing.

Almost all the episodes have something to recommend, but here're my choices for their best works:

Hider in the House, Deadly Friend, Ewoks: the Battle for Endor, Friday the 13th (their Star Trek tangent in this one is amazing), Silver Bullet, Invisible Child, and Cocoon.

brainsforbrains posted:

We Hate Movies is by far my favorite one in the list that I listen to regularly. The guys have great chemistry and actually know what they're talking about. However, like bobservo mentioned, Andrew Jupin does play up the indignant anger at overused or corny tropes (it sounds like he's impersonating Lewis Black in his more breathless rants) but hey, nobody's perfect.

I'd put this one up there with the best of all the comedy podcasts, even the ones that aren't about lovely movies. Elliott, Stuart and the house cat are hilarious. And there's a guy named Dan too. They discuss a crappy movie, take listener mail, and then recommend some movies that don't suck. Of all the comedy podcasts I listen to, this is the one I download and listen to immediately when I see a new episode pop up on the RSS feed.

Flython posted:

The chemistry between them all is just amazing. They all play their parts perfectly and it just works so good. The recent Total Recall episode had me rolling when they discussed the child of Sharon Stone and Michael Ironside. So glad this forum introduced them to me. I don't think they've had a bad guest host either. And their most regular guest Hallie Haglund is just great.

As always you should be watching The Invisible Maniac, Castle Freak and Head of The Family.

I've recommended this podcast a lot in this forum because I've derived a lot of enjoyment from it over the years. Just to be clear:

1) it is not always about "bad" movies (though more often than not, it is) -- it runs the gauntlet from childhood classics (The Dark Crystal) to obscure old sci-fi flicks (The Tingler) to famously terrible movies (Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever) and everywhere in between.

2) it is not hosted by comedians; the main host seems like an uber-nerd who pronounces Japanese words correctly and has an encyclopedic knowledge of kung fu flicks, and a lot of the time his co-host will be somebody from an anime website or whatever. Frequent co-host Sean provides a nice contrast, though.

3) it is not, in fact, a comedy podcast -- although the tone is lighthearted, they are not out to mock bad movies, but to give honest opinions about them, and frequently find some aspect of even the most awful movies to enjoy.

I've listened to all the available episodes of Yeah It's That Bad too but I don't really like it as much. The guys can be pretty funny at times but they seem kind of childish to me, and I don't mean their brand of humor. It's just that that sound like 13 year olds that speak in a weird, stilted pattern because one of them actually goes through and edits out the pauses and umms. It's one of the weirdest things I've ever heard but I'm crazy for bad movie discussion so I listen to it even though I can't give it better than a 3/5.

So I guess it's time I post this here, hope that's kosher. I asked you guys for some advice not too long ago on what you're looking for in a bad movie podcast and I hope I didn't let you down too much.

http://netflixmartyrs.blogspot.com/

We only watch films that are easily accessible (90% of the time, movies on Netflix, occasionally something on Youtube or Amazon) and talk about whether you should queue it up or not. When it came to tone we really wanted it to sound like four friends drinking beers and bullshitting after watching a movie. It's a bit rough quality wise in my opinion because we record straight from Skype for now (and forever because we're scattered across the world). I do all the editing and try to balance a pretty intense grad program, which isn't much of an excuse but it's a temporary reason why I'm not having everyone record their own strands. This will happen eventually though. I think over time the podcast will develop more "segments" and find its own identity. Feedback would be appreciated and I'm pretty good at taking criticism.

Dancing Potato posted:

I hate to toot my own horn in here but this seems like a good opportunity to say that I have a 'bad movie podcast' that I started partially in response to some of the criticisms in this thread (ones that I shared as a podcast listener).

I got sick of hearing about the same bad movies over and over again with the same exaggerated responses to everything, so I made a rule: the movies have to be obscure enough to never have been covered by another podcast OR any of the AV Club's similar columns. Often they have less than ten external reviews on IMDB, although both of these rules have been broken in the past.

It's over here:

Why Does It Exist?

I had a regular cohost for the first 40 episodes or so; now I have a rotating guest.

I'll chime in with Alcohollywood. It's a drinking game movie podcast that's actually pretty interesting on a technical level. Particularly fond of the mixology, though we might not see eye to eye in terms of movie tastes.

(edited to change the tone... didn't mean to be so rude. But I still stand by my statement that Neverending Story and Labyrinth are loving American classics that just happened to be based on German fiction and, uh, puppets, repsectively.)

I'll give The Flop House and We Hate Movies both big, big thumbs up. The Flop House doesn't dig as deeply into the movies they watch as We Hate Movies does, but they compensate by derailing the show so hard it turns into an incredibly hilarious mobius strip of a trainwreck. I've also listened to the entire catalog of episodes at least ten times, so it may have turned my brain into a broken record.

I like how June watched all of Barb Wire in a LA Starbucks, which is both a great image and helps explain why everyone on HDGTM is so confused about who did what in every movie. Catwoman is also good for some unexpected feminist defenses.

For WHM: The Skulls is also good, especially because of their increasingly deep-fried Southern William Petersen impressions.

One of their best episodes though is Gymkata. They even end up recommending it at the end but on the whole I think their No Holds Barred episode is the one I've listened to the most.

That 'Sleepaway Camp' section with Scheer is weird because as far as I know no-one needs to conduct elaborate theories as to what happens in that film. Once you've seen the twist the earlier scenes make sense, yet they seem to make out that it's some kind of Lynchian mindfuck. There's a lot more interesting things going on in that film than the plot machinations.

I found the 'Odd Life of Timothy Green' more interesting because they're not on the same page, and as he notes Tim Heidecker and Jason argue that actually the film is pretty good, and mocking it on face value is the wrong way to look at it (For the record I thought it was a fine, if underrated, film).
