Hi, my name is Andrew, and I watch movies. I have watched thousands of movies in my life, and enjoy writing, and talking about them. There is no discrimination based on genre or age here, I watch 'em all, and podcast about them. Sometimes, I even watch the movies with other people, and have an after movie conversations on the show. I hope everyone enjoys the evolution of this podcast, and our journey through the film world together. Let's start the conversation!

Join Andrew as he explores the extensive career of Body Horror master David Cronenberg. This is the first episode of a series where we go Cronenlogically through the Canadian Baron of Blood's career. Today's episode covers Shivers, Rabid, The Brood, and Scanners. We highly recommend checking out The Brood and Scanners which are currently streaming …
 
Wanna play a game? Join Andrew for a trip through the mind of a killer. The Saw series has always been a blind spot. I'm one who may have unfairly placed the francise on the heap with the other torture porn movies. Most of the movies on that heap don't have much of a point to them besides the violence. Maybe Saw is a different beast altogether. Joi…
 
Friday May 13th 2022 is the only Friday the 13th we get this year, so a couple Jason movies had to be watched. It might be Saturday the 14th, but it's 2022 rules. Jason can own the weekend. There are no real rules. Past a certain point, the series gets ridiculous, so why not revisit Jason vs the Telekenetic girl in Friday the 13th Part 7: A New Blo…
 
Happy Friday the 13th! Join Andrew for a short discussion on 13 horror films that shouldn't go forgotten. We also take a trip to the theater to see the new Blumhouse release Firestarter. The new movie can also be streamed now on Peacock for the $5 premium subscribtion. Contact the show- AndrewWatchesFilm@Gmail.com Follow Andrew on Letterboxd https:…
 
Join Andrew for a couple of trips to the movies. The first was a pit stop that was a little bit of a train wreck. The Second was a wonderful little movie filled with magic. Tune in for a discussion on Petite Maman, and Dr Strange's Multiverse of Madness. Contact the show AndrewWatchesMovies@Gmail.com Follow Andrew on Letterboxd https://letterboxd.c…
 
This Wednesday, Andrew just wanted to watch dumb horror movies, and that's just what he did. The intention behind it was to find a hidden gem, and the mission was accomplished. Find out which movie Andrew thinks is an unseen classic that holds up today. Movies discussed- Cherry Falls, Mothers Day, Vamp, The Final Girls, Jakob's Wife, The Furies, an…
 
Join Andrew on a trip to the theater to see the new movie Hatching. Horror is at its best when it is about something more than the monsters on the screen; when it reflects terrifying aspects of normal life. Hatching is one of those. Stick around for a list of the 15 best things streaming on Shudder. Contact the show AndrewWatchesFilm@gmail.com…
 
Andrew continues to fumble through his exploration of folk horror, going back to the roots of the subgenre. Today's feature is Vincent Price's Witchfinder Genearl. This one was streaming on Shudder recently, but is currently unavailable. Another of many films to put in the physical media arguemnt. This one should be streaming mainly because it's a …
 
Andrew continues to fumble through his exploration of folk horror, going back to the roots of the subgenre. Blood on Satan's Claw is currently streaming on Tubi, and is considered a foundational piece in both establishing folk horror in the 70's, and creating the start of what would someday become part of a full blown Satanic Panic. Join Andrew for…
 
Join Andrew for a Sunday Triple Feature of Lake Placid, Crawl, and the classic Alligator. Unfortunately, the only one currently streaming on a subscription service is Lake Placid on Hulu. That one is worth the Betty White performance alone. The others, you either need a physical copy or need to pony up for the rental fee. If you're up to it, the Sc…
 
Nic Cage stars in the most Nic Cage movie of All time,"The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent". If you're a fan of Nic Cage, you'll probably enjoy him in the role he was born to play; Nicolas Cage! Pedro Pascal costars as the man who would pay $1 million for his company. A truly indecent proposal. Join Andrew for a discussion on the film. Email th…
 
Continuing with a Monday Shudder Triple Feature, Andrew checked out the Shudder exclusive movie Son. Starring Andi Matichack (Halloween 18) and Emile Hirsch (Lords of Dogtown), the movie centers around a young child who develops a mysterious illness after he may have been visited by a Satanic cult. This one tests the sanity of the viewer. Join Andr…
 
Join Andrew for a rant about modern horror. Too much of the online discourse seems to be about how X sucked, Hereditary was over rated, Midsommar is terrible, the kid in The Babadook needs to die, and Jordan Peele doesn't deserve the budgets he gets. ENOUGH! Instead of engaging with the trolls online, join Andrew for a one sided rant about the stat…
 
Like a really good virus, I want to spread The Empty Man around. Since it was released in theaters during the pandemic when no theaters were open, not very many people saw the film. The Empty Man deserves an audience. While not perfect, it is ambitious and audations. Streaming on HBO. Give Empty Man a chance, you won't soon forget it.…
 
If you enjoy a good negative rant, I have an episode for you! I took a trip to an IMAX theater this weekend to suffer through the new Michael Bay movie, AmbuLAnce. I don't know what I was thinking with this completely reckless decision. Guess I just wanted to see a good, destructive movie set in LA. Since AmbuLAnce didn't satisfy that hunger, a ret…
 
Spoiler Free Episode After being held hostage by Los Angeles and New York for 2 weeks, Everything Everywhere All at Once is finally coming to a theater near you. Beloved director Mike Flanagan declared it one of the best films he'd ever seen, and its IMDB score has eclipsed the godfather, so the hype/anticipation for this film is extremely high. Jo…
 
I guess I've been out of the loop because until today, April 2nd, I had no idea Netflix was releasing a brand new Judd Apatow movie- The Bubble. Freaks and Geeks, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, FUNNY PEOPLE; Judd Apatow has released some all time classics. So many that I would argue the term Apatow Comedy should be a sub-genre all of its own. …
 
The next stop on Andrew's journey down the folk horror rabbit hole brings us to the cornfields the fictional town Gatlin, Nebraska. The children have killed off all the adults, and worship a mystical figure in the corn fields. On Halloween day, 1983 Vicky, a Pre-Terminator Linda Hamilton and her and her boyfriend Burt have the misfortune of stumbli…
 
Join Andrew on a trip to Oslo, Norway via the local AMC. The Worst Person in the World finally made it to a local screen, and I was dying to see it. The movie didn't disappoint. Also, far too much time was spent talking about "The Slap Heard Round the World" today, and this show is no exception. My personal conspiracy theory that Will's slap shook …
 
Studio 666 is a movie that I had been meaning to see. I've heard good things, that it's a great movie to just enjoy and turn your brain off for. I didn't make it to see it in the theater, and regretted it when it left quickly. The regret deepened on Saturday morning when I woke to the news that Taylor Hawkins, the drummer for the Foo Fighters had d…
 
This episode may or may not sound good, you be the judge. Join Andrew as he takes a walk on the beach to reflect upon a torturous screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Remake. Watching that movie again was a bad decision. Had to be followed up with another watch of the vastly superior Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge. Would appreci…
 
On today's episode of Andrew Watches Movies, we wade into the Netflix pool to try out their new offering Windfall. It has the setting (mansion), and the silverware (a fine cast featuring Jesse Plemons). Does it have the Steak though? Listen to this episode and find out. Andrew is candid as always. Email the show at AndrewWatchesFilm@gmail.com…
 
Is there any possibility that the new movie Deep Water starring Ben Affleck and Anna De Armas is good? Probably not. Can it be fun? With the right mindset, the new Erotic Thriller from Adrian Lyne is a hilariously great time with a bad movie. Join Andrew as he examines the sexual games this couple plays, possibly turning deadly. Contact Andrew- And…
 
First off, thank you to everyone who has supported this podcast. I appreciate it, and carry it with me every day. It's been a hard road getting back. Was looking at the disc I record on, and to get to this point, there have been 132 discarded files. File 133 was finally the one that popped back up here, and there are more in the can. The only way t…
 
For our 3rd "Super Anti-hero" film, friend of the show, cartoonist Alex Schumacher joins us to chat about the 1994 Jim Carrey Blockbuster. Where did we stand on it then, how has it aged, and how have we aged, considering this movie is 30 years old?! WE chat about the then cutting edge CGI, the extreme 90s-ness, and ask a few vital questions about t…
 
One of our first guests ever returns to discuss James Gunn's new DCEU film, and get mercilessly teased by us... because we have a reputation to uphold. We talk about the many creative angles and depths of this murderous antihero romp, as well as the gallows humor and many Easter eggs common to all of Gunn's movies. Plus we actually get deep on the …

Hey everyone, it's been a long time since Andrew has been in the podcast studio, and a lot has changed. For one, Washington has become a thing of the past, and the show has been taken to Florida of all places. That will all be explained in the introduction to the show. Films covered on this week's show will be the Fear Street trilogy, Zola, Werewol…
 
In another first take episode, we dive into the new Steven Soderbergh film No Sudden Move, and share a hilarious, fast paced chat with with the talented DJ Kozee, aka Marina Francesca. We talk about this crime film compared to the many others by the same director, the caper, the period style, THAT LENS, the stacked cast of scene stealers, and of co…
 
Returning to the Schneider-verse, we share a hilarious and deep chat about Zack Snyder and filmmaking in the modern age with Jason & Ryan, hosts of the excellent "Esoterica Cinema" podcast. We tear into Snyder's first post DC film, and along the way the energized conversation reveals many layers to the undead movie and its artistically talented cre…

We explore the genesis of the project, the charming personal story, the hurdles it jumped for representation, setting a strong example for any independent artis…
 
Our martial arts cinema block concludes (for now) with the two films that comprise Gareth Evans' bravura Indonesian crime saga. We dive into the many reasons the Raid movies are a cut above not just other martial arts films, but also many crime films as well. Plus, we look at the genesis of each installment, the unique elements of both, the extreme…
 
Our story of Martial Arts Movies reaches the next level with a bonafide 80s cult classic and the most ideal possible expert guest, the dynamically talented musician Taylor Graves. We discuss the film's unique fusion of music and martial arts, the music production itself, 80s fashions, and the many, many crazy characters populating the charming worl…

For our 101st episode, we share a brief chat about where this podcast has taken us, where it's headed, how it's changed us personally, and evolved our thoughts on film. Then we jump into probably the most appropriate follow up to GvK, with another "monster fight" movie. We discuss the trope-tastic not for kids playground that is this film, and muse…
