Josh and Joe’s show is a joy to listen to and hear interesting and great filmmakers talk about the aspects of filmmaking they love, and the films that have inspired them. It’s laid back and always fun. Highly recommended.

Great guests and Dante is encyclopedic in his film knowledge, Olson needs to stop interrupting guests with his opinions. I find that rude. Let the guests finish a thought man.

It is great to hear Joe Dante and Josh Olson interact with their guests about the movies that influenced their work.

Can’t believe this podcast exists!! Turns out we CAN have good things!!

Everyone praises Dante’s encyclopedic film knowledge but Olson is at the least wikipedic. We’re treated to a wide range of film industry guests, each revealing the surprising choices of films that inspired them. And I love that the show (mostly) avoids talking about whatever current production...Read full review »

Needs more Joe Dante and a little less Josh Olson. One of the few movie podcasts where the hosts have a real sense of film history and recognize that movies didn’t start with ‘The Goonies’

Loved the banter with Robert Picardo on East Falls, Allens Lane, Powelton Village. The cheesesteak talk about Dellissandros and Steve's steaks. It's the little things like this I like to hear. Especially since I'm listening from the North Shore of Massachusetts now longing for a...Read full review »

I will keep listening but meh liberal Hollywood hypocrisy at it’s truest. Yeah New Year I’m honestly done with these people. The rest of the listeners have fun with your echo chamber.
ChristophersRants via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/05/21
Here lately the hosts feel it necessary to talk politics. Today they spoke about actors with conservative views as being on the “dark side”. What happened to being able to have your own independent views and being able to get along and agree to disagree with those who hold opposing views? I used...Read full review »

If you love movies, the people who make them and film history in general, then you will love this podcast. I can’t think of another one that covers such a breadth of movies, genres or time periods. The guests are consistently brilliant and the two hosts live and breathe movies. Plus, you know......Read full review »

Josh need to stop talking and fumphering and let the guests talk. A terrible broadcaster with an obvious narcissism problem.

I discovered this podcast after watching Clancy Brown in The Mortuary Collection. The perfect episode for the Halloween season. I loved Joe Dante’s insights and film history knowledge intertwined with the discussion of films that influenced the guest. I look forward to listening to the other...Read full review »

A trifecta of riches for me! I just finished the Clancy Brown episode; awesome! Clancy is amazing! I’ve been a fan going all the way back to Bad Boys. He brings so much to each project and he’s so much fun on screen. I had the pleasure of doing his make up once and he’s a truly wonderful person....Read full review »

I love the rapport between these hosts and, so far, I've enjoyed all of their guests. This is a funny and informative podcast. My film knowledge grows exponentially with each new episode. Don't miss this one.Read full review »

Love this podcast!
pay no rent via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/31/20
What a fantastic podcast, the banter between Josh and Joe is funny and informative and the guests seemingly always have a vested interest in the films they discuss. Also, just for Mr. Dante: Blow Out is an incredible film!

Always entertaining. Terrific guests. Wonderful behind the scenes stories.

I love listening to him discuss film history. Great film recommendations too!
Nevern- via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/26/20
This is such a great podcast. Not only is it a great reference if you’re looking for movies you’ve never seen, but the conversations between the hosts and the guests are always fascinating. I love the idea of talking about the films that influenced an artist as opposed to conversations about that...Read full review »

Love this show!! Great guests with great interviews. It helps to be more familiar with the film industry. But the history of film and the personal stories coming from Joe Dante & Josh Olson are a delight 🤘🏼

It’s true! It’s truuuueeee!!

One of the only podcasts that I actually look forward to each week. A true bright light in these trying times.

It’s the best. Makes writing reviews easy.
Bustindrowning via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/18/20
Digs deep down into the passion centers of their great filmmaker guests. Love the show, guys. Big fan of Josh and Joe’s work as well! Fabulous stories and insights. Thanks for all your work!
Bill Muhlstein via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/18/20
The quality of the episodes differ depending on how much the guest embraces the format but even a ‘bad’ episode tends to be highly entertaining thanks to Josh Olson keeping the train running and Joe Dante proving he knows more about movies than anyone else alive... and I’ve spent a lifetime...Read full review »

I want Joe and Josh’s own episodes of the movies that made them, Clooney, Pitt, Soderbergh, Rubinek, Elric Kane, Brian Saur, Gibson, Peele, Love you guys, invite them all!

Stream of conscience conversations for the digital streaming era. Kudos to Mssrs. Olson and Dante!

Amazing guests, passionate hosts, and a unique format.

I don’t often review podcasts but I will here because I find this show so unassumingly charming. It is a relief these days to just listen to people talk about what they love. But if you’re more into people talking about what they hate, Olson has you covered with a different podcast (libs be warned).

A must for film buffs everywhere!
Englishmark via Apple Podcasts · Japan · 06/30/20
If any podcast wants to promote a gang like BLM, that’s the last time I’ll support that podcast. This is supposed to be a movie related show not bs politics! People in some parts of California are truly demented. Unfortunately Joe and his nobody cohost are part of that community of individuals...Read full review »

best movie podcast, bar none. So many great reccommendations come out of every show.
Tony the tiger x1 94 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/20
Lot of great insight into movies i’ve seen and some i’ve never heard of. I always leave with a massive list of must-see movies that I'll probably never get to, but I have a goal to shoot for.Read full review »

Truly the best movie podcast

If Joe is going to be condescending toward a guest, just don't have them. It's not a good look. Otherwise, it's a great podcast.Read full review »

There’s lots of movie podcasts, but if I had to choose just ONE. This is it.
W D Bates via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 04/30/20
Long-time follower who finds some episodes complete hit-or-miss depending on guest, and extent of Josh’s filibusters. Their current series of Pandemic recommendations in meal-shaped portions from former guests consistently is outstanding. Vote that they continue!
Peter N Hillman via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/25/20
I’ve been listening for a couple of months now, and every single episode I have come out with at least half a dozen new-to-me films which have been a treat to watch. Great hosts who know what they’re talking about, insightful guests who always have unique films they discuss and a fun podcast all...Read full review »

Josh Olsen and Joe Dante, between the two of ‘em, know just about everything in terms of movie history. The show is not pretentious, funny, and gives the listener a lot of solid “homework” to look up. The free form nature of the conversation makes it feel like you’re sitting amongst friends.

Great to hear people talk about the obscure movies they love.
TheLastofSheila via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/20
I love the candid & informal conversations are so much fun to any movie nerd. There are a large variety of different artists all throughout the industry. The Jesse V. Johnson one is a treat.
WyattMazetis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/24/20
I’m completely baffled by this interview with Thomas Jane. So many nuggets of information and passion from Jane, this is a must listen for any film fans. Solid series. Thanks!

One of the best movie podcasts out there. Gets right to the heart of how movies shape people’s lives. Warm. Funny. Sometimes even heartbreaking.
