The world’s best movie podcast

Posted by Martin on October 30, 2006

Mark KermodeIf you’re a movie fan, and you enjoy witty and informed reviews, there are none better than those on uber-reviewer Mark Kermode’s weekly slot on Radio Five Live, on the Simon Mayo show. Subscribe at iTunes, or visit this link for more details.

Interestingly, both Mark (left) and Simon are Christians – Mark’s major field of expertise is the horror movie, but he’s clearly got some sort of thought-through theological justification for his interest – one of the most fun parts of listening to the podcast each week is listening to their subtly-inserted references to faith and spirituality.

The best recent review – of the atrocious Wayans brothers debacle Little Man:

Mark: If you go to see Little Man, Shame on you. Shame on you.

(later)

Simon: Would you go as far as to say that Little Man is possessed by the devil?

Mark: Honestly Simon? You want to know what I really, honestly think? Yes, Little Man is possessed by the devil.

Seriously, start listening now. Unless you’re a big fan of Pirates of the Carribbean
