I am new to this podcast, so I downloaded that 3 most recent episodes. Let's start off with the positives.
The guys are very informative with movie news. With 3 episodes a week, they are up to the date with the news.
Ok now on to the bad. Where to start?
How about the sound & production "value". Yuk. The sound is very amateurish. Guess they never thought of doing any BASIC post production "noise reduction" or "volume equalizing". But that's not the worse part of their sound "quality". The worse part is the constant 1 second pause in between words that happens every other minute. It's so awful and annoying that it turns an otherwise boring podcast, bad.
Then there's the segment of "box office predictions" game. This would be a cute game if it would be a 3-5 minute segment. Instead they devote like 15-20 minutes on this (the 3 episodes I heard). That's just way too long. We don't care that much about box office numbers. And at least two other reviews of this podcast agree with me. Stop it.
And then the worst part of the podcast is that they seem to hate movies. These guys sound like film students who never made it in the industry and now just don't like movies much. At one point, they review Kevin Costner's "the postman" and they literally say "I absolutely loved this movie" and then preceded to give it a 3 star review. So a movie they "absolutely love" gets 3 stars? What's it take to get a 4 star review?! Jason is constantly using the phrase "who gives a ...." (I can't use the word he uses since Apple would block my review if I did.) but he says that phrase about EVERYTHING. About movies, actors, news, everything. It makes me ask the sane thing about this podcast, who gives a ....?!
There are much better movie podcasts out there. The Empire Film Magazine podcast is great. Much better and funnier than Movie Mavericks (which isn't too hard since MM is not funny at all). The podcast "F this movie" is also great. And the comedy podcast "What's Up Bro" is a better podcast than MM. What's Up Bro isn't even a movie review podcast, it's a comedy podcast in which they happen to talk a lot about movies. WuBro has a great "old school pick" segment that is much better than any of the long, dry segments that's on this podcast. Save yourself a from this awfulness.
