Creators: Jonathan Dinerstein & Andy Boroson
Episode Frequency: Every 2-4 weeks
Typical Episode Length: 75 minutes
Emoji Review: 🎼🎞
This is an excellent show for fans of film or music, and certainly a must listen for anyone who enjoys film scores in particular. Jon and Andy know their subject matter very well, and they deliver their analysis in a consistently entertaining way that always gets me excited to see a new episode in the queue. My only concern with this show is what they are going to do when they get to the top of the AFI list of top 25 film scores. I certainly hope they don’t stop there.
If you’re not ready to commit to the full series by starting at episode one, I recommend taking a look at their full list and picking a movie you like as a place to start. If that doesn’t help, then I recommend starting with episode 12, their 2018 Oscars Special, where they break down all the nominees for Best Original Score.
