Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 15

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 15

As the famed Nobel Laureate Aaron Lewis of the classic rock band Staind once sang, “It’s been awhile.” In the case of the Critic Speak Podcast, over three years. So James and I thought it was about time to record a new episode and see just how many of you would still listen. On this […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 14 (Guest Greg Sestero)

Call it “The Lost Episode.” James and I recorded this edition of the Critic Speak Podcast nearly a month ago, but then life got in the way and I didn’t have a chance to edit and upload it until today. My sincerest apologies. When you hit play, imagine you’ve just sent your DeLorean back to […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 13 (Guest Tommy Wiseau)

It’s a big week for the Critic Speak Podcast, as James and I are joined for nearly a full half-hour by Tommy Wiseau, the writer/director/producer/star of the 2003 cult sensation “The Room.” Wiseau joined us to promote his appearances at Landmark’s Ken Cinema in San Diego at Midnight on October 11 & 12 (this coming […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 11

We’re back! Now that James has returned from a three-week trip to Mississippi, we’re ready to talk movies at you. On our new episode, we discuss Jim Carrey’s disavowal of “Kick-Ass 2” due to his views on gun control, play a round of “Who Would You Rather Sit Next To?” with scenarios submitted by listeners, […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 10

First off, apologies that this is running on Thursday and not the usual Monday or Tuesday. We recorded it on time, but the editing process can take several hours, which was a tall order this week. So without further ado… On this week’s Critic Speak Podcast, James and I disagree with Steven Spielberg and George […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 9

It’s a short (relatively speaking) and sweet episode of the Critic Speak Podcast this week, as James and I keep it to reviews of the new horror-thriller “The Purge,” starring Ethan Hawke, and the new comedy “The Internship,” starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. We’re pretty much in agreement on the former, but we split […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 8

James and I open this week’s edition of the Critic Speak Podcast with a new invention. Inspired by overwhelming listener feedback about James’ multiplex audience horror story from last week, we decided to put an original spin on the classic party game “Who Would You Rather?” using various movie theater patron stereotypes. The game runs […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 7

This week on the Critic Speak Podcast, James and I are joined by screenwriter Jeremy Milks to review new theatrical releases “Fast & Furious 6” and “The Hangover Part III,” plus a couple of Steven Soderbergh films now available for home viewing, “Behind the Candelabra” (on HBO) and “Side Effects” (on Blu-Ray, DVD, and VOD). […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 6

This week on the Critic Speak Podcast, James and I split on “Star Trek Into Darkness” (what else is new?), take a break from movies to talk TV including “The Office” finale and the return of “24,” and revisit “The Last Stand” with Arnold Schwarzenegger in conjunction with its Blu-Ray release. Be sure to show […]

Critic Speak Podcast: Episode 5

First, let’s get the chronology down straight. Usually, we post the latest episode of the Critic Speak Podcast on Monday night. But because James and I were unable to be on Skype at the same time Monday, we were forced to record a day later, on Tuesday. So, despite the fact that this episode is […]
