#27 Interview With Darren of Movie Reviews 101

In this one I interview my podcasting mentor and friend from across the pond, Darren Lucas of Movie Reviews 101.
I met Darren through a Stephen King Blogathon he and Movierob were running a couple years ago. Since then, Darren and I have produced a weekly original podcast together called Talking Stars. We’ve been at that for about a year now. I’ve learned much from Darren about blog film criticism and podcasting as well. Of course we have learned a lot together in the process.

I have really apprciated Darren’s calm demeanor as we have planned show topics and communicated with around 10 guests in the past year that we revolve through and are part of our formula for the show.

It is a lot more complicated and rewarding than we both once thought. At least, I think it’s been rewarding for him. He’s a very mild-mannered voice so sometimes I have to guess! Enjoy the interview! In lieu of donation, please leave a comment!

#26 Interview with Kira

Kira is an excellent blog film critic with her eyes set on going to film school. I’m here to tell you this young lady will do it! She’s a valuable part of the Talking Stars and someone I respect so I asked her for an interview and I recorded it for you’re enjoyment. And hey, you just might learn something so listen up! 😉

I am honored to have the chance to interview a colleague in podcasting and someone I consider a friend. She has been such an encouraging presence to Darren and I on Talking Stars and she rises to the occasion when we ask anything of her. She is a remarkable student of film, a clever writer, and an ambitious young woman. That being said, she puts people first and treats everyone with a high level of respect (I feel as if I am writing a letter of recommendation!)

Kira has a lot of great things to say about film criticism and going after ones dreams. At 18, her wisdom belies her youth! I hope you enjoy the interview. The blogathon we mention is at her blog:

Having Kira on the podcast, there was much more to discuss so I hope to have her back again to pick up where we left off.

#22 Celebrating MovieRob’s 3000th Review

MovieRob is the first person I’ve had on this podcast for an interview. I sat down with him this second time to talk movies and blog film criticism once again and I can’t say enough good about him. This episode’s main purpose is to commemorate his 3000th review.
MovieRob is a tireless blog film critic and an outstanding person. In addition to recording an in-depth interview with him, I gathered and included audio messages from Rob’s fellow blog critics. They are inspirational as they show the impact he’s had on many people. I also read text messages people sent me regarding for Rob’s milestone. I really enjoyed speaking with him last night for this show. I asked him an example of a good and bad film and we did a “Whatchya Been Watching” at the end of the episode. That makes for 3 mini film reviews from him and one from me.

MovieRob is the first person I’ve had on this podcast for an interview. I sat down with him this second time to talk movies and blog film criticism once again and I can’t say enough good about him. This episode’s main purpose is to commemorate his 3000th review. Happy 3000th review MovieRob, here’s to many more!

One more thing! A big thank you goes out to Rob for allowing me to interview him on this special occasion. I have more exciting interviews coming in April including actress, blogger, and podcaster Kira Comerford and my cohort in podcasting and movie criticism Darren Lucas. These guests are substantial because I’ve learned and grown with them for a year on the Talking Stars Podcast. These should be incredible interviews about movies, podcasting, blogging, acting? and blog film criticism. Stay tuned!

#20 Movierob Interview and ‘Take Shelter’ Review

In this, my first time interviewing someone on my podcast, I sat down with Movierob. He is one of my blog film critic heroes. I know he is to many others as well.

I was so happy when he agreed to be on my podcast. In addition to interviewing him, we had a chance to chat about the surrealistic film: ‘Take Shelter.”

To the fans of Movierob (including me) I am collecting voicemails to be played on a future podcast. In a similar way the LAMBcast does it, record a sound file on your phone, stating congratulations and random messages for Rob. Please email them to me at rileycentral@gmail.com to be played on my episode highlighting his achievement of 3000 reviews.
