A friend of mine has suggested that he and I do a podcast of movie reviews, since we tend to have rather, uh, blunt takes on movies (“That thing fuckin’ sucked!” or “See it for the boobies!” for example.), which no one else seems to do. The format we’re planning on using for the podcast is this:
Segment 1: Trailer Talk
In this portion, we’d rag on or praise the movie trailers that ran before the film we saw. (“30 minutes of trailers before the movie and all of them sucked!”)
Segment 2: Movie Review
Here, we’d talk about the movie that we saw, praising the film if we liked it, questioning the parentage of everyone involved with the film if we hated it (or insulting the hell out of one another if we have opposite views of the film).
Segment 3: Rotating Segment
In general, this would be a review of something on DVD, be it a movie or TV series. Each podcast would have a different theme for this segment which would be one of the following:[ul]
[li]Dirty Old Man Movie: i.e. watch it for the “eye candy”[/li][li]Fucked Up Films: Totally bizarre films that will unhinge most people[/li][li]No ‘Effin’ Way: Horridly bad movies that should be avoided at all costs[/li][li]Favored Flicks: Movies that we like[/li][li]Vote to Inflict: Movies in current release or on DVD that we wouldn’t normally want to see, but based on the results of a poll, we watch and review.[/li][/ul]He and I have tried to think of a name for the podcast, but so far, haven’t come up with anything with the right “zing” to it, so I put it to you folks to come up with something. We’re both rather curmudgeonly, and rather graphic in our descriptions of movies, so a title which conveyed that in a short, pithy manner would be ideal.
