Movie Podcasts?

Are there any podcasts that talk about movies in theater or on dvd/blu-ray

Filmspotting is a good one.

I also listen to NPR Movies, which compiles some of the week's NPR stories about movies.

Filmspotting, Scene Unseen (really fun), and for DVD/Blu Ray bar none IGN.com's DVD Digigods.

'Movies You Should See' - a bunch of British folk sitting around talking about mainly US movies. It's not anti-American by any stretch, and some of their observations about US movies are pretty funny.

One chap argues that 'Jaws' is a metaphor for the US being deathly afraid of Britain reclaiming America. That the movie takes place over July 4th he feels is telling, and the shark represents the British Navy.

Love MYSS. It takes a few listens to get used to the cast, but once you get into it it's just a treat. In fact, most of their stuff is pretty good (The Definitive Word!)

Mark Kermode has a good review podcast. Another Brit and one of my favorite film critics.

Filmspotting is good as mentioned ... just not as good as when they had Sam.

And I'd also say check out Scene Unseen, some episodes are just the funniest thing... others are kind of blah. It's not as consistent as the others. But it's free and an interesting take on a review show.

Just started listening to Cinebanter... it's ok. I am warming up to it.

Another vote for Scene/Unseen - great fun.

Also, if you can, check out the BBC's Mark Kermode film reviews. Just stick 'Kermode' into the iTunes search box, and it'll find it.

Another big for the DVD Digigods.
Almost forgot, another good one is the Movie Blog Uncut.

Another big thumbs up for Movies You Should See. I also would recommend Meandawg top 5.

I'll second these:

NPR Movies
Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo: Great chemistry and very funny.
Filmspotting: The hosts have apparently only seen about 100 films in their entire lives, but the discussion is pretty intelligent.

I'll add these:

KCRW's Film Reviews: 5 minute weekly reviews by Pulitzer Prize winner Joe Morgenstern.
KCRW's The Treatment: Elvis Mitchell interviews a different filmmaker every podcast.

The Totally Rad Show -- usually about 15 minutes devoted to a new movie in theater, along with 15 minutes on comics, and 15 on video games.
