For anyone wanting to try this out, you will have to regularly skip the first 30 minutes (at least) to get to the movie parts. When they get there, itâs great.
Nice upswing in recent months. Really like the âbody of workâ approach to a single director with one guest coming back. Looking forward to Alexander Payne series.
I love Chuck and Noel/Nowell (?sorry). I listen to them at night with ear buds and it is hilarious when the guys make me giggle or laugh out loud. My hubby must think Iâm having fun dreams. I realize some may think this is nutty but I really like Chuck and Noelâs voices - they are very soothing. Anyhoo, love all the banter and insights into the industry. Thanks guys, appreciate the time you spend to keep us entertained.
Kudos must be given to the planning and execution of the perfect April fools prank. Kevin Pollak was so incredibly deadpan and underplayed Walken perfectly that I was completely fooled, was a bit miffed at first when I found out but it was just too funny not to just laugh and go with the flow.Pollak is a master at his craft and Movie crush, well you crushed me with this prank.Well done boys, well done.
Christopher MFâing WalkenGood one!!! Enough said.
Omg! I laughed all the way through this episode! Highly uncomfortable as it seemed it was so entertaining!
One of the worst Christopher Walken impressions Iâve ever heard
Walken! WOW! That was amazing! Totally different from the normal show, which I enjoy, but MAN O MAN, What a TREAT!
I wanna start out by saying I love this show and listen to every episode when it comes out. I just finished listening to the Christopher Walken episode and thought it was hilarious. Mr. Walken just saying how ridicoulous and ham fisted Foot lose is even though it was his movie pick, had me cracking up. Maybe I just have a weird sense of humor.
Wow! Great, funny interview with Chris Walken!!! For as nervous as you were, who wouldnât! You did a great job!!! Love going back to some of these reviewed movies and hear others assessments!! Keep up the good work!
Always looking forward to my Monday evening commute when I can crush out with Chuck and Noel
I was surprised to see a number of comments on low star reviews complaining about how the podcast is structured. I think it was apparent from the start that these were meant to be friendly, casual discussions about movies the guests love, not scholarly criticism. As a movie lover I enjoy this podcast thoroughly, and find fascinating the insights of guests in the âbusinessâ regarding how movies are made. I hope this has a long run!
Not sure why it has less than 4 stars?! This is a good show and I love their mini chrushes and the guests ones are great too!! Doesnât bother me that he can get âStar struckâ or veer off. Itâs a great podcast to listen to!
Listen to SYSK and love it. Chuck is knowledgeable and entertaining. But- and this a huge but, the Movie Crush is IMPOSSIBLE to enjoy with the co-host saying âyeah, yeah, yeahâ literally every 2 minutes. So wanted to listen to your show on Kubrick. I got about 5 minutes into it and had to turn it off. Its like he has some strange form of Touretteâs. Chuck- Listen to it and do the right thing.
It had potential but Chuckâs white guilt and anti-Christian smirking have made this unlistenable. Plus, thereâs only about 10 minutes of movie discussion. The rest of the episode is him pandering to the wannabe Hollywood elite. I still have hope for SYSK but it seems itâs going in that direction too.
Love this show, I am not a huge movie buff, so this show gives me an excuse to watch new things, and also makes it easier to choose something to watch! Fun, upbeat and thoughtful!
Just a good, natural feeling podcast. I listen to 100âs of hours of podcasts a year becomes of my job. This a good one. Love SYSK. So this is just an extension of everything awesome about that.
As far as fangirling/fanboying podcasts go, I typically sidestep them. However, this one is worth the listen, especially given the longer industry-insider narratives that poke through in some of the longer pre-review interview sections. Well done.
Chuck has a great voice and is a reliable dude. Chucks chuckles are contagious
I really enjoy the Mini Crush episodes. I love hearing the back and forth between Chuck and Noel. They both get so very excited about the movies they love.
I love Chuckâs podcast. He has great guests and great insight on movies and the industry. Itâs a great listen to hear more about movies you know and love or to hear great reviews of movies to see! Itâs fantastic ð
I love Chuck but will admit the first few episodes are a little rough. The quality and overall content definitely improve. Even if you havenât seen the particular movie the conversation is definitely worth listening to.
Great casual conversation about movies and people who love them. The mini crush episodes are fun, even though Noel can be overly critical and negative at times. Sometimes comes off as a bitter hipster. But his and Chuckâs banter is mostly fun and lighthearted. I read a comment saying that Chuck does not challenge his guests even if he may not agree with their opinions. Iâve noticed this as well. But I donât think that would be appropriate when asking someone to come on a show and discuss their favorite movie. He usually just moves past it with a simple agreed, and sometimes their perspective may change his opinion. Which is what I love about movie discussion.
First of all buckeye and Berger king can shut their faces. Letâs start with buckeye. THIS ISNâT A SECOND SYSK. And Berger mcslowlykillinghimorherself shut up and wait for new episodes to come out. I mean itâs not like Chuck can choose their favorite movie. And one more thing buckeye. This is a completely different podcast than sysk so shut your tiny mouth down and sit in the corner and think about what you have done you babies.ð¶ð¼ððð
If you (like myself) are addicted to movies and you want some casual immersion into movie addict geekdom then this show is for you. Completely non-pretentious and not always super knowledgeable Chuck Bryant invites us along to talk movies with that people that make them or just love them AND the best part is we get the opprtunity to sit in on the conversation. Always a pleasure. Thank you, Chuck!
Thoughtful and at the same time comfortably loose dissection of great films! A bonus of the show is hearing Chuck swear...itâs gleefully exciting like when your sweet grandma drop an F-bomb for the first time. Keep up the good work Chuck and team!
Even the episodes where I know 0 about the movie are interesting.
I really like the show and have been listening since the first episode, but lately I wish they would get to the movie talk sooner than 30-45 minutes, and if I never heard Chuck use the word âtropeâ again it would be too soon.
This is a great show because it focuses on both famous and lesser known movies. They are movies that the guest doesnât need to apologize for, they just bring them joy. The best episodes really go into why they are worth rewatching or seeing for the first time. A perfect companion to âUnspooledâ!
A wonderful podcast never miss it or the mini pods!
