Tons of fun, Rich gets fantastic guests and lovely crafts each episode. The original and best Betamax titled podcast.

Light-hearted & insightful episode. Turn back time with Rich & Catrin!

Fab episode on a film that sustains a thoughtful revisit. Good to hear Catrin again...like a female, 80s loving Melvin Bragg - feel like she’s given me ammunition to get the husband to watch this now.

Just played Moonstruck - what a great ep. Nails the warmth and melancholia of the film. Makes me think about the mystery of life. Lots of fun to listen to.

I personally love a nostalgia film podcast and this one does it really well. Great to hear the genuine, warm enthusiasm that you get from this. I loved the latest episode on The Thing, in particular, which is quite possibly my favourite film of all time!

Gets annoying very quickly due to the participants' seeming inability to stop laughing at their own jokes.Read full review »

An excellent, enjoyable podcast discussion for Monty Python fans. Interesting and informative. Will watch the film again with plenty of new things to look out for. Who knew Daphne from ‘Frasier’ was a dancing girl in the film?

My expectations were low given lots of these types of podcasts around but wanted to listen to the one on Planes Trains & Automobiles. Very well informed, stayed on point and gave a very concise overview of a film that has special memories. Recommended.

Tuned into this podcast for the Wanda episode after not dowloading for a while - pleased to be reminded how good it can be. @kittycostanza reveals all the things you didn't know you didn't know about FCW, and her nuanced analysis makes you feel like this is not just a slapstick riot but...Read full review »

Just finished the A Fish Called Wanda episode. What a fantastic podcast. It made me see one of my favourite films in a completely different light. Catrin Lowe and Rich Nelson were the perfect combination, discussing the film with such honesty and humour. Although going in to real depth, this is...Read full review »

Love this film and revisit it often. A great listen this (as usual) and lovely appreciation. Actually never realised Caine was that good across the 80’s until you realise some of the crackers. For espionage this is top notch as is the podcast. Get Intrada to look at that soundtrack
dchantry via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/24/20
Really enjoyable pod looking at a variety of movies from comedies, action and romcoms. How the films have aged, possible sequels, trivia. Perfect format.

Rich and guest explore 80s films, blockbusters and cult classics Really funny, plenty of clips from the soundtracks and some strange asides. Pigboy!
NannyMarion via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/26/19
Betamax video club provides an opportunity to rediscover and reminisce about specific movies from the 80’s era. Yes, there were serious issues happening around the world during that time such as, "The Hand of God", however there were also periods of such simplistic crazes, like BMX’ing,...Read full review »

The best decade for movies all wrapped up in a nostalgic hug!
Stevo Roberts via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/17/18
An awesome slice of nostalgia. I listen to it as I fall asleep, which is intended as a compliment.
Peteyfourfingers via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/04/18
A great podcast that gives the source material full respect. With none of the snarkiness that occasionally creeps into movie podcasts, the warmth that Rich and guests have for the movies of the 80s films shines through and encourages rewatching, which surely is the point.
Release the Clowns via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/01/18
Betamax was far superior to VHS for me, and this review show for classic 80’s movies is one of the best! Binged a load of shows and the only problem is I’m going to run out soon!

Great pod exploring 80s movies. Film enthusiasts with a great perspective. Really fun listen.

Nobody does 80s films better than Rich. Insightful, funny, insanely good quality & a string of impressive guest each episode - THE Claire Sturgess? Seriously? A must listen.

This delightful podcast looks back to a different film from the 80's for each episode and explore what it is about it that makes it so beloved, iconic or memorable - Rich is the excellent regular host but each week there's a different guest (though some have come back for a second...Read full review »

Like many film-based-podcasts this takes a trusted format of a couple of people watching a film and talking through it. As an ardent 80's fan, I love the choice of movies - many of my favourites there. Where this podcast really delivers is the knowledge and insight into each film, where...Read full review »

Only just come across this after the recent Dead Zone podcast (one of my favs). It’s a real joy to listen to films that I still find brilliant to this day and the genuine affection the reviewers have is obvious. Can’t wait for more of the same!
MPJC1978 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/03/18
The best way to relive some old classics that bring back so many memories. Stared with the shining but will be moving onto many more! Great work. Thefriendszonepodcast

Major props to these guys for taking a second look at the best decade of movies - the 80s! Re-captures the fun of long forgotten movie moments and with a really positive spin. It's really refreshing amid more cynical podders and lovely to find a cool movie podcast by Brits too!Read full review »
Shauno123 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/26/17
Really great idea and podcast. Takes me back to watching these movies for the first time in the 80s, with a healthy balance of fond memories and a dose of modern-day critical eye.

Remember how Stranger Things seaon 1 tapped in to all that 80s nostalgia? Rich does similar with this podcast, watching a 'classic' 1980s film with a guest. Great in depth film discussion and analysis of films that maybe don't feature too often on other film podcasts! Worth a download...Read full review »

Packed full of wonderful nostalgia as Rich (and guests) look back on some classic flicks from the best decade ever. Just tiny details like saying they rented the film to watch gives it such a great retro touch & I love hearing the number one song at the time the film came out. Really...Read full review »
