Reviews
I’ve listened to several of the episodes. Sometimes it seems as if the hosts didn’t really watch the same movie I did, often missing key points from the movie. However, there are other times when they do catch things that tease out some profound moments. I do have one extra note: while the hosts...Read full review »

I have a bone to pick with Dana Stevens because it’s like she doesn’t like any of the movies she’s reviewing and only half pays attention to them. Especially with the Marvel movies, you can tell she’s not a real fan and honestly none of the reviewers on the Marvel movies are fans. Dana also has a...Read full review »

I love Dana Stevens on everything except Marvel movies. I get that you shouldn’t have to be a Marvel fan to review movies but for deep dives surely it should just be left to people who aren’t going to pick out “plot holes” that the co-hosts then have to try to elegantly explain are not plot holes...Read full review »

Not a good podcast
Creeperslayer123 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/22
If you need anymore reason to dislike film critics then this podcast is for you! Generally their criticism is often in information or plot they obviously just missed and didn’t bother to look into. When called out by other guests they just double down and never take a step back. Also, take a shot...Read full review »

It’s like Dana doesn’t pay attention to the movie she is reviewing. The “plot holes” she discovers are her not paying attention or her inability to infer information with what she’s been given - isn’t that the whole point of being a movie critic? The Nope review made me so angry I had to turn it...Read full review »

First time listener to catch Nope episode. It was cringe-worthy how the host missed obvious plot points and instead ridiculed the film for “plot holes”. Was she half-watching the film? I’m no cinema genius but even I knew the answers to the questions that befuddled her. I felt like maybe her...Read full review »

Listen to the episode about Promising Young Woman - they talk about their uninteresting moral stances instead of the film! Ridiculous.

Good Lord, we get it. You’re too cool and entitled to like or objectively review popular entertainment. You look down on the audience who enjoy certain kinds of movies like Marvel films or popular genre series. I thought the “I’m clueless about comic book movies” schtick was funny and quirky...Read full review »

I couldn’t even finish listening to the doctor strange 2 episode. Neither of the reviewers paid much attention as they were already getting very obvious plot points incorrect. If you haven’t fully paid attention to a movie don’t review it.
whit_harris via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/22
If you hate Marvel movies so much just don’t go see them. I used to over look your disdain for those types of movies but the amount of complaining and belittling of Dr. Strange 2 just went over board. How about you just stick to properties you like or Just do better at keeping an open mind...Read full review »

Except for Dana and maybe two or three guests, no one should be speaking in public since they have horrible voices.
luxpermanet via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/22
What has happened to this podcast? Why is it terrible now? What is going on with Slate podcasts in general? Are there no more editors? Don’t podcasters have to do their homework first. On that note, one of the very best Slate podcasts, How to do it, was eliminated, while all these other...Read full review »

The hosts seem to have seen the movie once and didn’t seem to have paid attention or do research. It was hard to listen to because they kept getting plot details wrong, mispronouncing names, and making major misplaced judgements on characters that feel like projections rather than studied...Read full review »

I used to listen all the time but stopped because of the horrendous vocal fry valley girl reviewers. I tuned in for House of Gucci and it’s the same. Heather I think. Sorry won’t be listening again
Swms1224 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/10/22
I really wish they would take notes for the movies they are spoiling. In the latest episode on of the hosts says multiple times ‘I can’t really remember it’s been awhile since I’ve seen this’. This happens so often. You’re making a podcast! I like this show but it’s basically saying to the...Read full review »

The Power of the Dog podcast consists of one reviewer who does not possess the cognitive ability to understand the plot of the movie and a second reviewer who does not possess the emotional sophistication or attention span to hang with a film that really is not all that narratively or emotionally...Read full review »

I had to check to see if I accidentally hit the wrong button- the woman reviewer talks SO fast I thought it was sped up.
dahardyg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/22
So much vocal fry and “like”. So unprofessional. I love the topics but the speech patterns are a huge turnoff. You are not Kim Kardashian!
Nonexpertlistener via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/26/22
Finally deleted this one off my feed after two years of frustration with reviewers (not gonna dignify them as “critics”) who not only seem to be disappointed in every movie they see, but can’t be bothered to pay attention to those movies in order to coherently explain what they didn’t like. It’s...Read full review »
Just Good Sense via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/12/22
Just listened to one episode on the movie Power of Dog. I was really hoping to get good insight into the twists of this movie. Disappointed that both reviewers got many parts of the movie wrong admitting that they couldn’t remember scenes and omitted many key scenes. Kinda half-baked and lazy...Read full review »

Broad array of topics including current and classics, TV and movies, intelligent, insightful, animated, and witty discussions.
Mark from Rhinebeck via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/21/21
The hosts are always so negative about the movies they review. I’m not claiming any of these are the films of our generation but the constant tearing down of the films gets old really fast.
Tmanda1990 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/19/21
I suppose it doesn’t matter since I have unsubscribed and will not be coming back. But all I think about is how too many people (podcasting, YouTube, TikTok) believe they can pull off intelligent commentary with humor & sarcasm. Being reductive, saying “That’s Dumb” A LOT and replacing...Read full review »

Allegra Frank and Nitish Pahwa are terrible at this! Listening to them is like listening to two junior high kids try and recall a movie without any insight or interest in its thematic ideas. No attempt at subtext or symbolism. Just, this happened… and then this happened… and it was dumb. What...Read full review »

Boring. There are too many good podcasts to choose from to waste time listening to this.
BAlisonMarie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/21
I don’t really use the word ‘obnoxious’ very often, yet it describes something I keep experiencing with this podcast. I think the host is Dana; in the past two podcast episodes I’ve listened to, “Borat Subsequent Film“ and “Promising Young Woman,” Dana often uses a lot of words to express...Read full review »

First of all people need to chill with the whole “Inkoo uses the word like too much!” criticism. Plenty of people do and it doesn’t alter the quality of their inputs. That being said the quality of the inputs on this show can be severely lacking. I was surprised that they reviewed The Witcher...Read full review »

All they say is like and it’s like like jus say like instead of like making like sense like it’s terrible don’t like bother like
cray0617 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/09/21
Love this podcast. I’m probably in the minority of people who don’t care about getting movies spoiled and I love listening to these spoiler conversations prior to watching the actual films. It helps me view and understand films in a new way.

They minimized/excused a rape because a woman committed it. Embarrassing
Jaykidd13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/21
Your Promising Young Woman episode was great. I have been listening to a lot of podcasts about it, and yours has been my favorite. I listened to an episode about that movie by The Cinema Guys and they basically said that the rapist was probably just as traumatized as the victim. So maybe we...Read full review »

Oh my goodness the spoiler podcast for Palm Springs was so frustrating!! I loved this film so please watch it again so you can understand the film
SiobhainTS via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/08/21
Why even bother bringing a black guest host to discuss Bridgerton if the white host is just gonna talk over her the entire time? Willa, the white host, rambled on so much in this episode and even when she’d remember she wasn’t alone, she’d interrupt Nichole, the black guest host, before she could...Read full review »

Thoughtful discussion of Tenet; professional production with thoughtful insights from Both hosts; pleasant sounded voices, too
mohavisoul via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/10/20
I tried to listen to the episode about Parasite, but it was so annoying hearing “like” constantly. I’m sure in Inkoo Kant is a fine writer, but as a podcaster she’s unlistenable. Not everyone should do everything. Stick to writing. Speaking is not your thing.
Maymey via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/29/20
I’m a relatively new listener, but I’ve been loving this Podcast. Smart people having interesting conversation. I appreciate having women’s perspective as well, since most of the movie Podcasts I listen to our hosted by men. Love it! I definitely recommend.
RFM11238 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/14/20
Would have loved this show, and the format, however, it has become too tiresome to listen to such narrow viewpoints. I appreciate that the show invites “different perspectives” into the films/shows however, rarely do the insights go deep enough, especially when it comes to speaking about race....Read full review »

Their review of doctor sleep made little sense. They thought it was weird to have a scene of Danny and his mom at the end. Not sure why that would be weird? That was an often repeated criticism. It’s weird how this is in the movie. However no explanation as to why it would be weird was offered....Read full review »
concernedcitizen2049 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/13/20
Love you guys but your ads come across as around 200% louder than the actual programming. We play podcasts on our Sonos so the podcast is a no-go due to us needing to desperately rush back and turn down the volume when the ads start, at risk of getting in trouble w the neighbors.
maxbatt via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/20
This is not a review. It’s a group of friends gabbing about the movie that just came out, and explaining to you what happened. When the explanation is not perfect is generally because the movie was confusing (or boring), when the discourse isn’t perfect it’s because they’re just gabbing. It’s fun...Read full review »
Nicolefth via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/14/20
I listened to 20 minutes and gave up. Some speakers use the word “like” in nearly every other sentence, and just generally talk too much. I came to this by way of Slate’s Culture Gabfest, which is much more articulate and insightful.
James_jazzy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/20
I found it interesting but so hard to listen to - you tall waaaay too fast and say like as like idk like every other like word like . I kept having to check if my audio was at 1 1/2 times the speed
3vilStarlight via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/20
I tried to listen to a few episodes, but the excessive use of "like" and "kind of" was a bit too much and gave up. It's audio content, and both form and substance matter, eloquence matters.Read full review »

Why does Rebecca sound so out of breath during this episode?
Chilebean.123. via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/17/20
Great podcast that gives a good breakdown to some favourite movies and tv shows. Dana Stevens is great and so are most of the cast. Ingoo Kang though is so annoying with the use of the word “like” and really needs to tone that down. Otherwise it’s quite good overall
