A more than worthy successor to the Movies About Girls Podcast, Campaneros is a modern-day Vaudeville show centered on a B-Z grade movie. The cast are passionate, funny, and insightful.
Lots of cool insights, pretty funny cast, good bad movies, boobsThey have a good thing going on. Make more eps please!
yeah there ok....
Iâll let you guys do the talking, cuz youâre awesome at it. Great show, great terrible songs, keep making these please.
Wonderful and knowledgeable personalities, fills my to see list with fascinating obscurities. And finally, as a masochist with a taste for misguided music beyond the traditional confines of âoutsiderâ, Songs on Trial always gives me my fix for the truly bizarre fringe of popular music.
The CompaÃ±eros is a lengthy podcast (most episodes are over 3 hours in length). The âbig chiefâ is Matt, and he is joined by a panel of 8 or so others who are experts on movies. The focus is on badly made films, but not films that are necessarily bad. If you donât understand the difference, then this podcast has much to teach you.The cast is expert enough to easily discuss obscure movies from the 70âs and beyond. But they are still sufficiently youthful and irreverent that they never take their subject or themselves too seriously. Itâs all in good fun. No lessons are learned and itâs a good discussion to listen in on.The centerpiece of each podcast is an exhaustive review of a movie complete with sound clips of key moments and lively discussion. Each cast member then rates the movie.Other segments include: âCatch and Releaseâ where new releases and re-issues are either recommended (âcatchesâ) or not (âreleasesâ).âSongs On Trialâ where obscure music found from God-knows-where is judged by the cast to be innocent, guilty or innocent by reasons of insanity. Matt correctly warns listeners that their âears might be scarred for life.â âCompaÃ±eros Fun-Filled Factsâ about unlikely, but true incidents from famous lives. A guessing game âWhat Movie is Thisâ where the cast attempts to guess a movie described using reviews from the IMDB Parent Guide.âPG Boobsâ which alerts listeners where nudity that snuck past censors is lurking in your old VHS tapes and DVDâs.There is also a companion podcast under the CompaÃ±eros banner: âGet Soft With Dr. Snugglesâ that covers the world of softcore porn. I highly recommend this semi-serious examination of an unlikely subject.Thanks for all the good times, CompaÃ±eros.
I wait with breath bated for each podcast to come out. If it behooves one to please the organ of hearing and balance with intellectual capacity and integrity, then this is the podcast for you.
I would have killed for anything like this a decade ago. Every one of the CompaÃ±eros has some piece of esoteric movie or music knowledge to share. It is literally everything I've ever wanted out of a podcast. My film library has never seemed so sparse as it does every time I listen. Thank you, CompaÃ±eros.
Want a WILD RIDE with ZAZZ and VARIETY and OBSCURE MUSIC? Boy howdy this delivers every episode with a cornucopia of weirdness.
I thought I knew movies, but the Companeros continue to rattle off titles that keep me on my toes. Thanks, weirdos!
