Back in the day, there used to be a number of film review shows - Siskel & Ebert, At The Movies (with two other hosts after Gene and Roger left) and a few others.
While there are any number of written reviews on the web, and various newspaper and magazine ones, does anyone still actually do one where a host or two talks about the films coming out next week, on camera, showing clips? I’d be OK with one that is only available on streaming that I could view via my phone or Roku.
I’m not looking for podcasts where people talk about old films, but about the new and upcoming ones. The equipment is cheap compared to how it was back in the eighties, nobody needs a real studio. Heck, you could do it with the hosts via webcam.
You may want to look for a YouTube channel rather than a video podcast — the latter don’t seem to be made much anymore. Good luck.
(PS: my local NPR station does a one-a-week review radio show. It’s here: FilmWeek | 89.3 KPCC )
That’s perfectly fine if I already know about the film, but what Roger and Gene and their competitors did was tell me about films I never heard of. Part of the reason so many people think that there’s nothing but remakes and superhero movies anymore is that they don’t know about all the little films that are coming out playing for a week and then disappear.
I like Half-In-The-Bag on Youtube. It’s the guys that did the Plinkett Star Wars and Star Trek movie reviews.
They only pick one or two movies and only post once a month, but there are two of them and they do discuss the movies in depth and give their reviews. They do not discuss them in advance so what you see on screen is fresh.
Fun, funny, and they are both pretty intelligent as well.
