Top 5 Film Review Podcasts You HAVE To Try!

All the film reviews your ears could desire...

Podcasts are personal and it can take a long time for you to find that perfect series which gets all of your attention. 

If you're a film buff like me, then you'll want to find a suitable film review podcast that you can play in the car or at the gym - just so you can get your movie fix!

Film buffs rejoice!

As I have said, podcasts are notoriously difficult to recommend, however I will give it a good go! After some long hours listening and some research, I have compiled a list of 5 film review podcasts (in no particular order) which I think are worth your time...

Film buffs rejoice!

1. How Did This Get Made?

This first podcast is hosted by Paul Scheer (Veep, The Disaster Artist), June Diane Raphael (Grace and Frankie) and Jason Mantzoukas (The Leagues) and features various guests within each episode. This podcast deconstructs and mocks films, which are usually quite poor, and asks the question 'what makes a bad film good?'. In my opinion, this podcast is funny and poses questions which do make you think - and it's all light hearted which I love!

2. The Business

Hosted by Kim Masters, an award winning journalist, this podcast is everything you could wish for if you love to pick apart every single element of films and their production. With weekly podcasts available full of "banter" about the latest entertainment and industry news, alongside interviews with top directors, writers, producers and actors - previous guests include Matt Damon and Ice Cube.

3. Video Negative Podcast

Here at Retro Styler we are obsessed with all things nostalgic (shock horror...) and if you are too, then this podcast may be just the listen for you! Although this podcast may not celebrate all of those films we adored as kids, instead, they rip apart every single major title and reveal the truth... The films we watched as children were a w f u l - this podcast is still funny though!

All film buffs listen up...

4. Represent

Equality is extremely important to us here at Retro Styler and that's why I can't get enough of the awesome insights allowed by this particular podcast. With journalist, Aisha Harris, aiming to shine some much needed light on underrepresented and occasionally marginalized groups in film (women, people of colour and the LGBTQ community). 

5. Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo's Film Reviews

A popular segment on BBC Radio 5 Live on Friday afternoons, this podcast allows those who usually miss the radio show to catch up on all of the gossip and top quality reviews discussed. With various guests also appearing on the show, this podcast allows you to earwig as both Kermode and Mayo share their views on the week's releases.

What are you favourite podcasts?

OK, so that was a very wordy one... BUT, without further ado, I want to hear from you! (Ha, that rhymed....) No but seriously, I can only listen to so many podcasts, but I would love to hear all of your favourite podcasts, whether they are film, gaming or comedy oriented - let me know in the comments below!
