Mike at the Movies, reel 03

Originally posted on Domain of Usagi704:

Mike at the Movies is a podcast where I give my thoughts/reviews on movies I have seen. This will be a podcast where I review one to three films with or without a co-host. The movies reviewed do not have to be current and can be any movie from any year and the discussion can include spoilers. You have been warned.

This reel I welcome Matt to talk about The Patriot (2000), Man of Steel (2013), and Rambo (2008).

If you would like to be considered for a spot in the rotating roster of co-hosts, let me know in a comment below.

Game of the Year 2014 – Best Podcast

Unlike last year the number of podcast I subscribe to has increased to 18 and I think that’s been paired down from a few months ago. Regardless the stand out program I started listening to was Back in my Play.

I went back through their older episodes initially and listened to most, if not all, of the ones with a topic either on the Castlevania series or the beat-‘em-up genre. All were fun to listen to, but none were more interesting and informative than those episode featuring game developer Mike Mika.

Other top podcasts of 2014 were old favorites Giant Bombcast, No More Whoppers, and Retronauts.

What’s your favorite podcast you listen to? Is it one of those I mentioned above? Let me know below and share this award blog post!
