I’ve been meaning to write a review of the B-Movie Cast for a while.
I’ve listened to Vince, Mary, Nick, Juan, and their assorted cast of ne’er-do-wells for the past few years. It’s my favorite podcast. Each episode feels like you are discussing movies with a group of friends and not with a bunch of know-it-alls looking to score points in some hipster argument. None of their critiques is ever cruel for the sake of being cruel. They actually try to find a redeeming character in even the B-est of B-movies. I like that evenhandedness.
The group offers a wide range of B-movies up for discussion, from Manos to Under the Skin. They are always looking to expand their own knowledge of the various genres and also looking to share that knowledge with their listeners. Prizes are given away, emails are shared, phone messages are played, stories and jokes are told…it almost has the feel, at times, of an old variety show or local radio show!
If you love B-movies — and moreover, if you love talking about B-movies from a fan’s perspective — then you should really enjoy this podcast.
