I subscribe to a lot of podcasts. Most of my subscriptions revolve around technology news, but I also listen to plenty of shows outside of that topic. My latest favorite is a show called Film Sack. Film Sack is a show by Scott Johnson of Frogpants Studios, along with some other entertaining guys. Scott is one of my favorite podcasters. He’s a great guy. I like his style and his humor. I also regularly listen to his AppSlappy and Hypothetical Help shows, which I’ve mentioned here in the past.
Film Sack is definitely an entertaining listen. Each weekly episode is entirely about a single film. The show is full of jokes and humor, so don’t expect to be too serious. It typically runs one hour per week. It’s been in production since late 2009, but I’ve only been listening for the past couple of months. I’ve been enjoying so much that I’ve been going back and downloading some of the past episodes.
Aside from the humor, I love the movie titles that they review on Film Sack. The movies they have chosen to review is part of what makes the show so great. Such films include: Swamp Thing, Superman 2, Revenge of the Nerds, 2010, The Fly, Beetlejuice, Star Trek V, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and even the ridiculously obscure Killer Klowns From Outer Space! (My brother will get a chuckle out of that last one.) Film Sack does not review new releases or any film that has recently been in theaters. It isn’t that kind of show. A lot their movie selections are ones I fondly remember watching in the 80s, and I easily relate to their nostalgic point of view. In fact, I’m going to petition Scott to record an episode about the 1987 movie Innerspace!
If you’re a movie buff, or have an appreciation for the type of movies in their show catalog, you should definitely listen to Film Sack. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
