Hey y’all, the Smug Film podcast is going away for two months so that we can plan out and record some of our more meaty, research-heavy episodes, which we haven’t had the time to do for a while. Have a lovely August, and we look forward to seeing you again in October!
Alright, you little pipsqueak! We know you like our podcast, and we know you’ve been waiting with bated breath for a new episode.
Well, you’ll be pleased to learn that Season Two of the podcast starts on January 5th, with new episodes going up every Monday after that! But, if you join Smug Film Club (our awesome mailing list where we never email you unless we’re giving you cool free exclusive bonus stuff) you can listen to a brand new podcast episode right now!
It’s our Best of 2014 Holiday Special, where we discuss our favorite movies of the year, and holiday movies in general. This special bonus episode will never be on iTunes or anywhere else—the only way to hear it is by becoming a Smug Film Club member, which is a completely free and painless process. Find out more about Smug Film Club here!
Typical Smug Film reader at a movie store.
If cinema has taught us anything, it’s not to trust robots. So why get movie recommendations from robots? Robots don’t know anything about movies. If they did, they’d make ’em themselves or whatever. So fuck all that algorithmic nonsense on Netflix and Amazon and IMDb and countless other sites. Nothing beats good ol’ fashioned advice from a knowledgable film buff who enjoys stuff from all genres. But gone are the days when you could walk into a video store and get that sort of service. Which is why we have started a free movie advice column.
