Nerds on Film

211 posts

In a sea of movie podcasts, only one is made by 3 film nerds, and 1 severely disturbed man.

Do you like listening to podcasts? Then perhaps you’re looking for a podcast about movies. You love to talk about movies. Likewise, maybe you love listening to other people talk about movies. But wait, there are so many movie podcasts out there! Well, maybe you would like it when the podcasters crack jokes while dissecting cinema. And what if you even like those jokes when they’re sometimes inappropriate?

Then, this podcast is for you.

Perhaps you’re a film nerd.  But you’re not just someone who’s a fan of superhero films, Star Wars, and Star Trek.  You like it all: Spielberg, Tarantino, Del Toro, Oscar-bait, popcorn movies, documentaries.

Then, this podcast is for you.

Even still, maybe you’re a hardcore filmgoer. You check movie news sites daily.  You’ve attended multiple film festivals.  You pay extra for movies so you can watch the special features.

Let’s put this way. If you’re the kind of person who geeks out at, or cracks jokes about a movie when a writer signs on, then this podcast is definitely for you.

On this show, hosts Bryan Moriarty, Gina Giovanetti, Sean Moriarty, and Roxi Nobari put their own nerdy and comical spin on topics from Fandom and Film Industry alike.  By the way, you should probably listen with your headphones. Because this one is for grown-ups.

Episodes are updated bi-weekly.

2 Catholic Kids Talk About Easter. Deal with It.

With Gina and Bryan co-hosting the episode, you know things are going to turn Catholic.  In addition to answering the all important question: “Godspell or Jesus Christ Superstar?”  They proceed to talk about their weird picks for Easter viewing, post Brunch.

Listen as Gina and Bryan talk about the Rankin Bass “classic” Here Comes Peter Cottontail and the 70’s horror cult film Night of the Lepus, as well as biblical spinoff The Robe and a couple of their favorite South Park Easter-themed episodes.

All the Clichés NOW – Part II

In this episode, we have the second half of our discussion with guest Dave McGuire to talk about romantic comedies. But first, we start off with Gina rage-reviewing Winchester, where she points out the several heavy historical inaccuracies and story problems she had with watching it.

Once we get back to the main topic, we discuss our favorite and least favorite romantic comedies, with such classics at Some Like it Hot, America’s Sweethearts, and several more.  We also discuss the social influence of the genre, and where the genre might need to change to move forward. We hope you enjoy it!

All the Clichés NOW – Part I

Since it’s February, and we’ve never really done it before, we decided to go with the seasonally appropriate topic of romantic comedies.  Listen to part 1 of our discussion, features Nerds on Film co-founder Dave McGuire.

Slight correction:  At around the 32:00 mark, Bryan says “Ephesus” when referring the The Comedy of Errors.  He meant to say “Antipholus.”

Everything You Just Said Was Wrong

The Nerds kick off the New Year with their spoiler-ific review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  Not all of the serious fans hated this movie, and we give a pretty balanced analysis of the film.  We hope you enjoy, and add to the conversation.

While the fervor from both movies has passed, the nerds decided to review Justice League (at length), as well as Thor: Ragnarok.
