The Damien Riley Podcast #18 – ‘Take Shelter’

I hope you enjoy my 2 min 30 second review of this film. See you next time!

Occasionally a movie comes along that you discover accidentally and it completely alters your definition of what a great movie is. Take Shelter is a 2011 movie directed by Jeff Nichols and starring Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain, and Shea Whigham. Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.” -IMDB

#17 – My Best Picture Pick

It’s been a good Oscar season, a little mediocre but good. I enjoyed so many films this past year it’s always odd choosing from such a short list. I offer you this less-than-three-minute-episode to hopefully lead you over to read some of my longer written works. See you after the Oscars!

#16 ‘The Girl With All the Gifts’ and Other Things Not Making Me Happy

Hi there, Damien Riley here. Welcome to my podcast I started in 2010. In this episode, I share updates from my life as well as movies I have seen recently. This episode signals my move to make this podcast more of an active project in my life. I hope you’ll check back and share the fun with me!

Charlie Ray La Pat recorded my Snippets. Thanks Charlie!

Okay, let’s start with the movies I’ve seen lately. There are 3 and I wasn’t fond of any. It happens.

Second and finally, welcome to my brain and my world! Get yourself a strong coffee and get ready!

Finally, I say goodbye and give a teaser about how this show will be good for you next time 🙂

Hope you’ll tune in next time to the Damien Riley Podcast.
