THE SKEWED REVIEW | PODCASTS
If you're not already aware, I write a Blu-ray column for Gannett. In it, I review not only the movies but also the bonus content. After all, many of us buy Blu-rays because we get extras in addition to the film.
Why else would we shell out close to $30 per film? We want more than just the movie we paid $15 to see in the theater.
By the way, you can read my Blu-ray reviews, plus my weekly geek column, by clicking this sentence.
I'm personally interested in everything that goes into making a movie. I eat up those behind-the-scenes mini documentaries found on most Blu-rays. It's fascinating to see what makes movies work or what makes them fail.
That's why I love the podcast, "How Is This Movie?"
Host Dana Buckler researches movies and movie stars and then gives us behind-the-scenes information on topics like Wes Craven films, Star Wars and Eddie Murphy, just to name a few. This podcast is basically an audio version of the Blu-ray behind-the-scenes bonus feature. It's a fascinating look at the process behind our favorite films.
This is one of about 10 podcasts that I listen to regularly. If you love movies, you should listen, too.
