Cinemasochist Review

cinemasochistI have to admit that when I first listened to Cinemasochist I was a little put off. I can’t really remember which episode I listened to but it seemed to be a lot of giggle between the guys on this show, too much like a bunch of drunken frat boys than a talk show.

One more problem I had while I first listened to this was I had just review two other podcast with similar formats, We Hate Movies and Proudly Resents, and this one seemed to be the weakest of the three.

What Cinemasochists is a podcast a group of friends who watch older films that were commercial failures and review them to see if they were as bad as they remember, rate them and reflect to see if the film had any redeeming qualities. The hosts are Sean, Michael and Jacob and, for the most part they do a good job, both insightful and funny. Occasionally they bring guests who they allow to pick the film that week. Shows are usually done weekly, but not always, and are between 30 to 45 minutes.

There are times when it seems all cast members attempt to talk at once and many times one ends up trying to talk louder than the rest, resulting in heavy distortion. There is one member who seems to talk about sex and breasts a lot, funny at times, other times not. I think that a little more preparation might be helpful to the show, as I heard a few dead moments when it seemed no one had anything to say.

I have subscribed to this show and am in the process of listening to every episode. As I listen, I realize the show is getting better as they go on. I definitely recommend this podcast and give it a rating of 0. (You need to listen to the show to understand this rating).

Episode 36; Soldier (1998-Kurt Russell) or; Behind Blue Eyes
