Film Junk Podcast

Reviews For Film Junk Podcast

A film podcast from people who love film. You don’t have to agree with them on even issue or film to feel welcome here. I’m so glad I found you guys!
Been listening since fall - started with their recent podcasts before going back to their podcasts from six years ago and these guys are so consistent. Consistently funny, insightful and entertaining. Their movie reviews are always great and they've become the only film critics I trust. Each podcast is pretty long, which at first was daunting, but I've come to love this about the cast. I can't get enough. Film Junk has fueled my passion for films. I love these guys.
I’ve been listening for almost 8 years now, putting me all the way back in my junior year of high school, and I still look forward to a new episode every week. What keeps me coming back is their banter, their carefree, fun attitude about reviewing films. They don’t take themselves too seriously when the subject matter doesn’t call for it. Their 3 distinct personalities are gold and in a weird way, it feels like I’ve gotten to know them as people. All around super fun, hilarious, interesting, and if you’re a fan of film, you’ll feel right a home.
The best
A few problems with this podcast: 1. Too much rambling. No consistent structure or timing from one episode to the next. I prefer podcasts that respect the time of their listeners a bit more. 2. No diversity. One of the biggest problems with movie reviews is that rarely are these reviewers anything but white men. I certainly appreciate the views of white men when it comes to movies but white men tend to look for the same things in movies and typically have no ability to view a movie from the perspective of a woman, a Latino, LBGTQ, a Black person etc. Considering this point, the movies that they decide to review typically fall within certain boundaries. Thus, from what I can see, these guys are only looking at a small slice of movies that are ever released. Personally, my movie tastes go far beyond most of the movies these guys choose to review. But then again, why would three white men care what movies a black man would want to see? 3. This could all be remedied by adding a few people of color and some women to these discussions. But, they certainly have the right to do the show they want to do. It’s easier for me to simply unsubscribe.
This show is long and funny in the best way possible!
Uncle Frank all day everyday. He is the way.
I have been listening to Film Junk for close to 10 years and it is by far my favorite podcast. It is the only podcast I listen to every single second of, down to the closing seconds of closing music because you can never be sure if you’ll miss a funny retort or exchange. The only podcast that will make me laugh out loud. Completely irreverent but completely endearing too. I love these guys.
I really enjoy this despite how rambling it is. These guys are really funny and don’t hold back.
Check the premium pods on band camp. Great content
Started the show with the episode on Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, I loved it and agreed with a majority of the opinions. You guys are hilarious and love hearing your opinions. The only thing I didn’t like was the segment of what you guys were watching in between the review and the spoilers. Love the segment just didn’t like the use of it as a break
I love the Film Junk podcast. It’s literally like listening to me and my friends talk about movies for 2 hours at a pop. They are funny while still giving insightful reviews. I learn about movies I never would have even given a thought before. They’ve really expanded my world and grown my love for movies. They have great regular guests as well. I love when Dax is on. They joke around about how listeners either love or hate when they have Reed on. Put me in the hate list. I still listen but I can’t stand when he is there. Other than Reed, the podcast is fantastic.
Insightful and genuinely funny podcast, been helping me fall asleep for the past 3 years. Fantastic website as well with all of the relevant news you could possibly want. Constant arguing about pronunciation by 3 guys with severe Canadian accents...10/10. The best!
Been listening for 2 years and it is my favorite cast I listen to. If you are a new listener give the cast more than 1 episode it takes time to get all the in jokes and personalities.
There is no other film review show like this one. The dry, sarcastic rapport these guys have together is infectious and extremely entertaining to me. The more you listen the better it gets. They also have an extremely deep reservoir of film knowledge to draw from. They’re not snobs, but they’ve definitely watched more movies than you have. A lot more. Five stars to the guys who inspired me to start a Blu-Ray collection years ago. #Reedforlife
This episode was painful.
Long format, honest discussions and hilarious banter. Jay, Sean and Franks are like your friends that you get to look in on every week. Been listening for years and it’s still fantastic.
Unorganized structure. Everyone is cutting each other off and cracking up on inside jokes that completely derail the momentum. Really wanted to hear some constructive criticism but just got circuitous banter.
I may be addicted to this show. When I was stuck in a slot canyon with a broken leg, waiting for Search & Rescue, I turned on Film Junk. It’s actually a little creepy, because I don’t really know them, but it’s like hanging out familiar friends. They talk like real people, holding nothing back without being obnoxious, and they consistently deliver a well-produced but no-frills show. They know their movies in a way that’s passionate but not academic, and their interplay is pitch perfect. I came for the in-depth movie discussions, but I stayed for Jay’s burps.

1/5

These guys all talk like Ben Stein. Its just incredibly boring. Even if they have something interesting to say their dull monotone deivery will put you to sleep before you can hear it
I have been listening since 2012. Never missed an episode since. Extremely entertaining, informative and funny. I would even recommend this for the casual movie watcher, or even someone who has never seen a movie.
I've been listening since 2012, and It's my favorite podcast. I don't really know why. There no flair, no fluff take on things is nice, and it's consistent.
I’ve tried to listen to this podcast multiple times over the last few years, and it always sounds like these guys are reviewing movies as a chore they don’t want to do. They often don’t bother to read anything about the film or creators, can’t give any reason as to why they like or don’t like the movie, and often times don’t even understand what the movies are about (eg they think The Disaster Artist is a comedy and that Annihilation looks weird visually...). I’m sorry, I feel like I’ve given these guys a fair try and just can’t enjoy the podcast.
Try doing something consistently for 10 years in a row. Now try to do it consistently with a group of friends. Now try to do it while navigating the tech and culture changes, and, dare I say it - the court of public opinion (aka CoPO). The Film Junk crew has done it and they've created something special in the process. While other shows are more polished, have more established "critics", bring on more famous guests, and generally take themselves far too seriously, the Film Junk crew does something better - they like hanging out and talking about movies. Sure, it may become "Content Junk" in the near future, but who can blame them? Content is cool. The cinema experience is dead. Long live the living room! Viva la iPhone! Or something like that. Sean, Jay, Frank, and their ocassional guests make each episode feel like you're hanging out with them for a couple hours. (Only we're like creepy neighbors who have installed surveillance equipment in the houses of each of the hosts.) This is the one podcast I can always count on to make me smile and laugh. Thank you guys for all the entertaining conversations over the years.
this is my favorite podcast by far. Not only do I listen to each episode as they are released, I also am listening to the extensive back log. I strongly recommend this to anyone who is even faintly interested in cinema. This podcast has madeMy love of film grow 1000 times over! I wish I had 4 thumbs so I could give this podcast 4 thumbs up!
Recommended by a friend. A friend no more. Now a lover.
Been listening since 2014 and with its endless entertaining discussions, colorful personalities and steady release of content makes this an incredibly unique and totally engaging podcast with such great diverse opinions from each reviewer.
This has been my go to podcast for the past 5 Year’s. The king of comedy, the duke of spook and “Sean” are the best.. keep it going guys.
There are others with interesting gimmicks or niches, but this is the one you can spend 3-4 hours listening to and be sad it's over. Comedy, tragedy, medical body horror. Film Junk has it all.
If you want to listen to a boring slow show about movies this is for you !
If you're a movie lover, this podcast is for you. If your a film snob, maybe not so much. The Film Junk crew are a trio (with occasional guest friends) of Candian guys who spend 2-3 hours each week reviewing a recent movie, talking about other things they watched, busting each others balls, answering questions from listeners, and generally giving the listeners the impression they are silent attendees at a fun get-together among friends. It's a mix of lowbrow humor and thoughtful discussion, and just generally a blast to listen to. Their premium offerings (minimum $1 donation) available on Bandcamp are great as well, usually devoted to a specific director or film series (Halloween, Godzilla, HItchcock, etc). Can't recommend it highly enough--my favorite podcast.
I started to listening to Film Junk for the reviews and what we watched segments, but what keeps me listening is the humor the hosts bring to the show. These fellas are hilarious and I listen to episodes even if the main review is not a movie I'm interested in. Easily my favorite podcast.

6/5
5/5

This podcast is the GOAT!! Over 10 years later and the only thing that might stop them is if Jay is pushed into Monster overload madness due to his mid-life crisis.
listened to several movie podcasts and this is proably my favorite one. like it better than filmspotting, /filmcast, the canon
regular listener for year. probably need some ramp up to get wiht the flow but they are great fun
One of the best movie podcasts out there. These guys are hilarious and have some great insights.
The absolute best podcast. Get on board.
Film or otherwise
My absolute favorite!
I disagree with these guys often. So, the fact that I adore this podcast is not influenced by any feelings of vindication for my opinions. Quite the opposite. I wholeheartedly disagree and am still unable to miss a show (including Premiums). I can't recommend it enough. They're very funny, especially Jay's antisocial humor. They deserve more attention.
Definately the highlight of my week is checking out the new episode of Film Junk. Sometimes, I get depressed and want to end it all, and hold out to hear the new episode. By the time it's over, I have a new lease on life. Can't thank these guys enough for keeping me grounded.
I have been away for quite a while from the Podcast universe, but one of the first Podcasts that I got hooked on was the Film Junk Podcast, (when Greg was still on board). I was so happy to see it is still going strong and re-subcribed immediately. Thank you guys for being so passionate about films and junk. I am back on board and look forward to spending many hours listening to you guys. I was sorry to see Greg go and I hope he is doing well, but the new additions are great!
Listen to hosts Sean, Jay, Frank and a rotating casts of guests as they talk about all things movies. Laugh with the guys; as Jay relates a new imagined illness he believes he has, as Frank frets about seeing movies that might be scary, an as Sean tries to keep the show on the rails
Worth a listen if you care even a little about movies.
...but possibly the best podcast ever - seriously - I've listened to my share of podcasts over the past decade and I have to say that this podcast is consistently outstanding. I look forward to this every week... And I'm always sad when it's over and realize I have to wait another week for a new episode. DOWNLOAD THE PREMIUMS and keep these guys going! So, in short - it's okay I guess... Side note - no more Dax or Reed please.
It’d be better if they just did the review at the beginning and then go into junk mail. It would be much better as an hour podcast. I like that they have the time stamps now because I always skip over “other stuff we watched”. The guys have great chemistry though and a pretty funny dry sense of humor.
