I really enjoy the insights that the Guardian reviewers bring to the table every week. I wish they would review more foreign releases though. Overall one of the best film podcasts out there. Highly recommend.
Bunuel92 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/03/16
This is one of the better movie podcasts out there. I particularly like the fact that each episode gets to the point, contains several reviews and is short. Mostly under half an hour, but containing the same amount of in-depth reviews as other podcasts three times that length. Good reviewers...Read full review »

Love the Dailies double-act with Catherine Shoard and Henry Barnes: short, topical, often very funny, and with some insightful film reviews. Really missing the longer weekly show with the great Xan Brooks and the incomparable Peter Bradshaw.
Geoff Taylor via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/11/16
The trouble with this podcast is that although these film critics may be good with the written word, they are poor presenters. Their jokes are weak, their attempts at being smart is contrived and their smugness is annoying. Worse, they have no spark and really show why they weren't...Read full review »

Afraid I preferred the version with Xan Brooks, so I'm opting out. The daily show is a little too clubby and in-jokey for me. Plus there's just not enough interesting film related stuff going on to bother with a daily movie show with no movie reviews.Read full review »

I am currently making my own podcast "the Geekly Digest" where we talk the latest news and reviews.... I am currently just checking out all similar podcasts. I liked the interviews..... Thanks guysRead full review »

This podcast is great. Really entertaining, with brilliant hosts and topics, and a nice mystique. I've never seen even seen Avatar so my opinion probably shouldn't be trusted, but I thought you deserved a 5 star rating. ByeRead full review »
meepdog via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/03/16
This is a pretty lame affair, as one might expect of something pumped out on a daily basis. The commentators hold forth sagely on the grosses of films despite having no real knowledge of film financing marketing budgets. One of them is guaranteed to raise all the requisite Guardian PC quibbles,...Read full review »

I could only stomach 2 podcasts before I had to abandon ship. Try Empire + Kermode & Mayo instead to listen to people who can talk about films without spoiling the plot, and articulate their opinions well.
Rawspit via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/07/16
Terribly produced, the sound levels are all over the place. When a film excerpt comes on, the volume is very loud so I have continuously adjust the volume.
LauraMinty via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/02/15
They seem to have decided on the verdict before they have seen the film. The more the general public like a film the more they hate it.
Jabber74 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/04/15
......really ??!!! Not entertaining or interesting - try again Guardian
redpsionide via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/19/15
Dull, pretenious and tedious.
Jiggerly Jones via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/12/15
I really appreciate this podcast - particularly the perspectives of Peter Bradshaw - one of the best film writers on either side of the Atlantic. My only complaint is that the volume on the podcast is shockingly low. A lot of podcasts have this problem but this one is off the charts. I am...Read full review »
Moleskine82 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/20/15
No rational and well structured description of the films for review, pompous comments, wildly subjective viewpoints abound, inconsistent and the Edward Snowden film given reverential praise because it is a Guardian Story. Needs to be much much better.
Smiler998 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/25/14
Far superior to Kermode and Mayo, maybe not quite as good as The Film Programme. Unlike the former, it is compact, accessible, different every week and it's main focus is film. While it never attracts the same calibre of interviewees as it's BBC counterpart, nonetheless it does provide...Read full review »

Not too little not too much and certainly not as self appreciative as kermode and mayo
richmelvin via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/15/14
This show helps me to see the beauty of cinema. There are different views on the same film.
Vivi_Brazil via Stitcher · 05/28/14
This is a great show - a little too short, I'd love it if each episode was twice as long. You can't really relax into listening to a podcast that's too short but regardless the reviews here are thoughtful, insightful and well-informed - more please!Read full review »
bloodredsummer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/23/14
Started to download this after they cancelled the excellent show presented by Jason Solomans. Jason was a real film fan - Brooks and his colleagues are the worst sort of film reviewers: pretentious and elitist. Any film that emanates from Hollywood or has populist appeal is sniffly and...Read full review »
Schmike via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/30/13
The discussion is good but the scripted transitions feel like painfully forced magazine comedy that the host isn't too sure about, giving the show a bit of an awkward vibe.Read full review »

I still very much enjoy the Guardian film podcast but can we have Jason Solomons back please.
Emmmmmaaa via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/08/12
The Film Weekly podcast was cancelled and then this appeared. Jason Solomons was the heart and humor of the smart spin on cinema and his fans are left without an explanation for his absence.

Miss this podcast :-(
James B Ross via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/03/12
What can possibly replace this excellent podcast? Consistently amusing, insightful and beguiling, I miss the banter between Jason and Xan. Am I the only one feeling bereft and stunned at its sudden demise?
cushioncovers via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/01/12
I cannot believe this was cancelled. It was absolutely awesome and also complemented Kermode et al. The formula of interview + reviews was excellent. Plus Solomons was a much needed champion of British cinema.
DukeOfLancasterVI via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/11/12
Come on !!....bring this podcast back now...what are you thinking of ?! Nothing as good/informative/enlightening/fun as this out there. Another who will stop buying the Guardian in protest...
Jimstrummer via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/10/12
I can't believe this has finished! Not a huge fan of the Guardian newspaper but this podcast was/is great. Please bring it back! I listen to quite a few podcast on film reviews always good to hear different opinions on movies.Read full review »
Taffy Woolback via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/08/12
This was a great podcast. Jason was a fantastic reviewer and interviewer and I will miss he and Xan's lively discussions... Guardian, what are you thinking? Bring it back, please! I'll pay for it if necessary...Read full review »

it was perfect, just the right balance between banter and critique. what a shame :(

Guardian - please, please green light this podcast again. It is (was) fantastic.... Please. It is (was) one of the many things that differentiates The Guardian from other, lesser papers. I will be buying one less paper a week in protest until you do... And I like buying your paper so please bring...Read full review »
Alcampbell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/11/12
This podcast is no more sadly, 29th March 2012 is the last one. I really loved this film podcast, much better than Kermode and Mayo on 5 live, far too many rants for my liking. I'm really sorry to see this finish so suddenly. Have a rethink Guardian please.Read full review »
mazzfizz via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/07/12
Thanks to Jason and Xan, fantastic work. Has inspired and informed my love of current and classic film. Nothing else covered the same range with such joy, irreverence and panache. Whats left? Mr Potato head and Quiff boy. Dreary :-(
Dougal's Cushion via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/05/12
A really good listen - never fails to inform and amuse.
SwindonIan via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/01/12
Not to take anything away from the people behind this, it is a well made podcast, but it's pretty boring. There are lots of better film podcasts out there. Filmspotting and Kermode to name a couple. Works as a good sleep aid thoughRead full review »

Meh
If Kermode and Mayo are M&S, this is Lidl without the bargains
LB&W via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/21/12
It's good to hear enthusiastic debate when elsewhere you get ego and rant. Xan and Jason make quite the double act.Read full review »
ZappingZap via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/29/11
Essential listening for the real cinephiles out there. Great interviews with the most interesting film makers of the moment. High brow to be sure but Mr Solomons is not beyond the odd fnar fnar joke either. Informative and fun.
paccamacca via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/04/11
Film Weekly isn't a terrible show; it has good interviews and has recognition of Foreign and Arthouse pictures as well as Blockbusters, however all the good stuff ends there because the problem with it is it's hosts. Jason Solomons is without a doubt the most horrific film critic who...Read full review »

Listening to the Oscars 2011 show, I don't know if these guys always have background music to their chat (admittedly it's not always there) but when it's on and they're talking it's far too high in the mix so it's harder to hear what they're saying. Not to mention...Read full review »

Have decided to unsubscribe after, again, being told a plot twist in a new film. Like the spiteful child who takes great delight in telling a younger sibling that Santa does not exist, the two reviewers smirked and giggled as they told us a key fact about 'Never Let Me Go'. The Guardian...Read full review »

Thank you for a quality podcast, good interviews, interesting point of views and good lead from Jason Solomons. One of the best film programme in the UK.
Max in the UK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/13/11
I have been listening for ages now and this podcast is improving constantly, I think you need to listen to Jason and Xan for a while to 'get' their style of reviewing but I think it makes an excellent alternative to the two Dr's. Keep up tue good work guys :-)Read full review »
Black Squirrel UK via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/09/10
Utterly smug and sanctimonious he has this job. Opiniated yet knowledgable but in my opinion wrong a lot, even about basic stuff. Great interviews wasted but does have a good rapport. Obviously cares a great deal about film, esp independent and the often unrecognised, but just doesn't do it...Read full review »
weirdna via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/08/10
Like many film reviewers, Jason Solomons has a tendency to be pretentious and snipey. He isn't great at conducting interviews and therefore most of the interviews in this podcast lack any real insight. He also says 'kind of' far too much - listen to the latest podcast (27th May) in...Read full review »

This podcast has good interviews and has good info. You can find out about films from members of the producton and be entertained at the same time
Fergusb via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/08/10
Wow, not sure why so many people are feeling the need to be so negative about this podcast. I have been listening since 2007 and I think its brilliant. Jason Solomons and Xan Brooks give really insightful and interesting film reviews. Plus their banter is a real highlight. The intro music is fine...Read full review »
