The Obsessive Viewer | Weekly Movie/TV Review & Discussion Podcast

Join hosts Matt, Tiny, and Mike as they talk about their love of movies and television. Each episode covers a specific topic (be it genre, trope, movie or show) and then ends with a "Potpourri" section where the hosts discuss what they've been watching lately or are looking forward to watching in the future. Past topics include Nickelodeon in the 90s, Notable Movie Theater Experiences, TV One Season Wonders, TV Dads, War Movies, Car Movies, and Teen Coming of Age Movies. The hosts also do occasional retrospective episodes that have covered the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, the career of Adam Sandler, and the entire Halloween film franchise, to name a few. The podcast also features occasional interview episodes and live recorded episodes from Indianapolis conventions like Indy PopCon, and Starbase Indy. The podcast also hosts a live event every October in Indianapolis celebrating the horror genre and local filmmakers called Shocktober in Irvington.

The Podcasts

At long last, The Dark Tower was finally released in theaters. Tiny and I saw it together and then I saw it with our friend Tony Troxell from Geeking in Indiana. In this episode I talk to frequent guest Robert Fekkes about the movie and got Mike to submit a Pine Tree Perfume segment reviewing it as well! (Note: Our review with Tony Troxell can be found in the previous episode.)

At long last, The Dark Tower was finally released in theaters. Tiny and I saw it together and then I saw it with our friend Tony Troxell from Geeking in Indiana.

Mike returns to the podcast for our first ever Summer Box Office Challenge. We’ve each chosen our predictions for the top ten Summer 2016 domestic box office results. We’ve also guessed (likely wildly inaccurately) what the domestic gross will be for each movie in the top ten by Labor Day weekend, and we’ve also guessed highest and lowest opening weekend numbers as well as the highest and lowest Rotten Tomatoes score in the top ten.

All of this will be graded on a point system at the end of summer. The winner will get to choose a movie (with no limitations or restrictions) for the other hosts to watch and review on a future episode of the podcast.

This week we played a version of our Fake Movie Game, only this time we pitched Fake Sequels. One host pitches a title and the other two hosts pick an alternate genre and then pitch the plot for the new movie. Then for Potpourri, I talk about Seinfeld and Fifty Shades of Grey. Tiny shares his thoughts on Faults. And Mike watches Annie Hall for the first time.

*I mistakenly refer to Session 9 as Session 8 in this episode, I apologize.*

In this special episode of the podcast, I (Matt) premiere my solo side-project podcast: Anthology. In this pilot episode, I introduce the concept for the podcast, its origin, and give some background on The Twilight Zone and my feelings about the show. I also review and analyze The Twilight Zone’s first two episodes: Where is Everbody? & One for the Angels.

Anthology will be added to iTunes soon. For now, like the Facebook Page and visit the homepage at http://anthologypod.com.

Tweet me your thoughts on the podcast and The Twilight Zone itself @ObsessiveViewer. You can also reach me on Anthology’s Facebook Page, email me at Matt(at)ObsessiveViewer(dot)com, or call and leave a voicemail for the show: (317) 762-6099.
