General: Watching Movies with Bad People in Them

I just kind of ruminate on this topic for an hour or so. My opinions have likely even changed further since recording this, but I think this is as good a launching off point as any.

General: Spreadsheet Deep Dive

Finally, a truly detailed expose on the spreadsheet. I try to cover everything that goes in to inputting the data from a film into my spreadsheet. I’d be happy to field any further questions that anyone might have!

Vacation Week

For the episodes initially intended to be released on Dec. 18th, Dec. 20th, and Dec. 22nd, I am regrettably in an internet-forsaken place that won’t permit me to do a single thing besides upload the smallest files imaginable. It’s not a question of speed, but of unstable connection. I’ve had success uploading such things as my intro themes and whatnot, but any real episode won’t upload on WordPress and cannot reach your ears. I am sincerely sorry and will seek to rectify this ridiculous reality that my grandparents live in. Without going into too much detail, I intend to record episodes while on vacation and then release six episodes throughout Christmas week: the 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, and 30th. I also apologize for the lack of an FML update, but I will attempt to post on one the Cinereelists FML Chatter when possible.

Currently planned episodes: Last Jedi Review, Last Jedi Statistics, Spreadsheet Deep-Dive, DecemberBorn Actors, Scavenger Hunt Review, and TBD.

If you want small snippets of my The Last Jedi reactions, you can check out my Twitter: @circleoffilm

In the meantime, I’ll be working on preparing future episodes and making sure an incident such as this won’t occur again. Final apologies! Have a week!


2015 Circle of Film Awards!

Great news, everybody! I found this episode lying about in the archives and have touched it up and can share it with you! 2015 was a different era when episodes of the Circle of Film Podcast were much longer. I’ll warn you now, it breaks the 4 hours mark. Maybe best listened to in doses. And hopefully I’ll be able to find some of the other years before this one if I keep digging!

(It’s not from the archives. I just pretend it is.)

General: My History/Future in Film

This week’s FML update is large and in charge, coming at the beginning of the episode. Then I dive in to my own experiences with film, the way it’s shaped and molded me over the years and where I would like it to go in the future. This is a reward episode for my $1 Patreon goal that is long overdue. Thanks everybody!

General: Interview with Declan, host of the 28th Letterboxd Scavenger Hunt + More!

Today’s episode is a two-way interview between me and Declan, He was the host of July’s Scavenger Hunt and was willing to join me for a conversation to talk about the Scavenger Hunts in general, his involvement, and a bit about all of the tasks he came up with for that month. There’s some silliness and plenty of laughter to be had, and a bit of a language/pronunciation gap at times, too. We pushed through for a solid two and a half hours.

Declan is the host of C+M+G=S (Cinema plus Music plus Gaming equals Satisfaction) Fridays from 6PM to 8PM BST/GMT.

Top 10 Movie Parties to Avoid

Special episode today! It’s a long one and it features a surprise guest! Tune in to hear how this show sounds when I can get a more seasoned podcast host to join me as we count down some of the worst parties for movie characters to have attended.

General: Quantity vs. Quality

With my internet currently out, I go into a more philosophical approach to today’s episode. How do we balance watching as many movies as we can with watching the best movies we can?

General: Fantasy Movie League

Today’s episode is all about the FML! The first part deals with a general overview of the site and how the game works, then I move into some statistics for a private league that I’m part of: The Cinereelists:¬†
