I LOVE this podcast and while I prefer Kermode and Mayo I have no problem with most of the supply teachers but last Friday’s episode was the worst I have ever listened to. Whoever thought it was a good idea to do a top 10 do Swedish comedies needs to have a good look at themselves. 20 minutes...Read full review »

Yes, it is middle-class, largely self-referential and does show political leanings. However, it is hosted by two masters of the art and who have real passion for the subject and affection for each other as well as their listeners. I have differing political views (in some things) to Mark but...Read full review »

Heaps good theme song! 😎

It's such a long running show, an institution no less, that it's bound at some point to overreach or jump the shark. The decline began over the last couple of years, and it's become increasingly smug and tiresomely woke. Kermode's always worn his middle-class Trotskyism on his...Read full review »

I have been listening to Mark and Simon for a decade, and I couldn’t imagine my week without them. This is a must for cinephiles, but even if I wasn’t a huge film fan, I would still love this programme. Always funny, always insightful, always heartwarming, every episode is an absolute gem. Their...Read full review »

Wanna hear film reviews not tales of smug write-inners’ boring depressing self-obsessed lives Plus, mayo is a boring . Hanks aint all that, you middle-class, aspirational morons.

I cannot wait for Friday nights to just listen to this and relax... I can listen to one podcast over and over and never get bored and still laugh! It’s really nice to listen to this and hear about the movies I have seen or am going to go see so thanks!

Excellence in broadcasting. From a very long term listener, please never stop!

As someone who goes to the flicks about once every 2 years, isn’t certain that we have a functioning DVD player and hasn’t watched a single movie during lockdown I find this keeps me sane, what with one thing and another.

Whilst other podcasts are available, if you don’t rate this 5* then you are as wrong as a Michael Bay film. Listen, immerse yourself and enjoy. Yes, it has gone annoyingly left wing and woke in recent years and movies are over praised because they have a female / gay / black / black gay and...Read full review »

I’ve been prompted to write this based on the comments of others who take offence at a perceived “woke” leaning in the podcast. This podcast is like sitting down with friends and having a chat about film, cinema, life , the universe and everything in between. The fact that there are reviews...Read full review »

I think I must have an addiction to the show. But I must say over my many years of listenership the show has become increasingly culturally political. Reined in by Simon Mayo, the Mark Kermode left leaning doesn’t come close to his solo effort Kermode on Film which is a virtue signaling wokefest....Read full review »

I am not a LTL (long term listener) but I think this show is FANTASTIC! I love how they’re honest, kind and funny. The film reviews actually inspired me when I was doing my homework before lockdown. Absolutely brilliant show! Well done boys.

I look forward to Friday evening when each weeks podcast becomes available. Sometimes I listen straight away. Some weeks I save it for the weekend. I always enjoy it.

Used to be a good down to earth film review show. However, now it’s turned into muppet show. A great example of why you shouldn’t let egos run wild.

I love this show, refreshing, honest AND the intelligent way to help us decide what is worth watching! @officialteachingmums xx
Frau Lincoln via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/18/20
Love the show (LTL) especially the chemistry between the two presenters, what I can do without is Kermode’s constant left wing woke agenda, he just can’t help trying to make everyone else think like him, all I want is to hear about the films.
reidmail via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/13/20
A wonderfully honest show full of insight and chat which never gets lost up its own orifice (unlike some of the critics of the podcast I have to say). I look forward to listening to it every week. It is like sharing time with good friends and it doesn’t get better than that. I agree with other...Read full review »

I’m an LTL (Long Term Listener) of the BBC’s Flagship Film Review Show and have over the last 10 years, come to consider this podcast one of my favourite pieces of media. Being so long running, the show has its fair share of running references that can seem confusing to new converts but the m...Read full review »

The wokeness has exceeded my personal limit. After 10 years listening I have unsubscribed.

Pretentious Left Wing idiot

The show is excellent, people saying it’s too “woke” should crawl back in their holes

Enjoyable listen and lighthearted. The time goes quickly when listening
maxedwards85 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/04/20
I’m a long term listener, but was pretty disappointed by the editing of the most recent episode. It seems to have been cut short by about 15 minutes both on apple podcasts and BBC sounds. It even manages to lose the review of one of the films mentioned in the episode title! Poor show by the...Read full review »
Sonny.sam via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/03/20
Kermode clearly knows his stuff, can be insightful and sometimes very entertaining but he dumbs down too much in this show (his other output is far sharper). But the BBC is utterly mad if it doesn’t do something with Robbie Collin, who is a stunningly articulate reviewer. He has such a pinpoint...Read full review »

I live abroad. Listening to Mark and Simon reminds me of home while I spend hours in the car driving back and forth to work. I keep a list of films to watch that I’d never have heard about unless covered by this show.

cmdm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/20
As per title really. Pretentious rubbish obscuring the very occasional interesting review. These two are about as “BBC” as it gets.
D161814L via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/27/20
This needs to be retitled, Mark Kermode’s podcast, with Simon Mayo, nodding in the corner. What the eff does Simon do? Easiest job in the world.
fashmetal via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/27/20
Just superb. Year on year these two never fail to keep us entertained. Not everyone gets it and that’s fine but if you do it’s heaven. Ten more years!!!
Crispin70 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/23/20
Films reviews for woke snowflake virtue signallers. Kermode is an embarrassment films only get a good review if they fit in with his right on pc leftie agenda. He should stick to ranting about Trump on twitter.Mayo should know better than to get involved with Kermode’s increasingly desperate...Read full review »

Mark Kermode is a great critic. Simon Mayo is a great presenter and interviewer. This podcast is insightful, funny and informative. I would recommend this to everyone who loves films. In a time of chaos, hatred and sadness, Kermode And Mayo's Film Reviews are the rainbow in the sky amid all...Read full review »

Utter delight in a world of mediocrity By far the best podcast on the planet Down with the Nazis and all that Keep up the good work
Britpunkr via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/16/20
Honestly .. in my opinion this podcast is perfect. They treat the listener as an intelligent equal. Simon is not a film buff but his interview style is relaxed and asks the questions we would ask. Mark Kermode is the nerd, but knows he’s a nerd. I’m living alone abroad this make my week end !
fffrrrrsssgjjjjj via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/15/20
Thoroughly enjoy listening to the gentle banter between Mark and Simon . I always learn something every episode and there is never anything troubling so it’s great to have on last thing at night to listen to and drift off to sleep . That’s not to say it’s sleep inducing but rather just very nice

Amazing to think I’ve been listening to them for close to 20 years.

It may be my fault for listening (on a recommendation) but I found this self-indulgent. I mentor at the local sixth form and was seeking to recommend something for an A-level Film Studies student to follow. He needed to broaden his knowledge. Twenty minutes in and all he would have got was...Read full review »

I’m a LTL & FTR (reviewer) but this is a superb podcast. Middlebrow, self deprecating, witty, serious and kind. It creates a community and sense of family amongst the loyal church members.
Monkey McChunkey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/01/20
I listen to a lot of film podcasts, including Kermode on film, but it’s Simon Mayo that lifts this one above the rest by letting pretentious film talk breath a little before putting a cork in it! Legend.
Leonardo Di Luxy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/28/20
Quite brilliant. His words and wisdom together with his understanding of the human race, is the indeed a wonder. His 3 steps to total happiness in particular. As Charlie Mackesy writes “nothing beats kindness, it sits quietly beyond all things”. How true. Thank you Tom, thank you Simon and Mark....Read full review »

Hello to Jason Isaacs. Great podcast. Except for Edith Bowman.

Love the chat, love the reviews, even when I disagree with Mark (not often) I know he’s giving an honest and considered review. It’s a warm hug at the end of the week.
Judy66 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/26/20
The podcast used to be an in-depth discussion about films. Over time it has morphed into more of a film social club, centred around listeners film reviews, and in-jokes. Listener reviews almost always have a political element to them and given it’s the BBC you can imagine what views are deemed...Read full review »
