About Us

Convicted Cinephiles... From the brain of a self-proclaimed movie "addict" (because junkie is such a harsh term, am I right?) The League of Manchildren creator, Steve Stebbing and his hosts Matty and Michaela present a brash, informed and often funny approach to movies in this podcast. If it's a crime to know too much about film, they are serving a life sentence.

Webb for a pretty interesting group of films. The panel starts with something a little different in their usual news department. They talk television!

Convicted Cinephiles #59 - Donkey Show

After almost a month Stevil and Matty return with a new Convicted Cinephiles. This week we explore that fun time in everyone's development as a human being, teen angst! With the help of guests Jstebz and our friend, a guest from our comic show Booked, Noah Dorsey, the panel breaks down four very different films. With stories ranging from Saturday detention to the outright murder of the popular clique in school, we have all bases covered. So alright, alright, alright, let's dig in! These are our Staff Picks of the week! Noah comes equipped with two picks for us this week. Proving it gets better and better with each viewing, it's really a no brainer why Big Hero 6 was the Academy Award winner for Best Animated. It's got a big heart, lovable characters and some really great action. Will this be the kick in the pants Matty needs to see it? Time will tell. For Noah's second pick he suggests a horror film from writer/director EricEngland, Contracted, about a woman who thinks she's caught ...

We give you a different kind of ConvictedCinephilesfor this special episode. Kyle Brown and EricKimeltonfrom In Development join Matty andStevilfor a look back at the movies of 2014. These are our Staff Picks of the Week! Michael Mann's had some issues creating a decent film over the last decade and, according toStevil, he's still gota way togo becauseBlackhatstill falls short of the mark. A good premise, great cinematography and a likeable lead doesn't save this movie from being mediocre and completely underwhelming.Stevildid a full review on this film you can check outhere! Mattyis currently studying his ass off to better his mind and career. Doesn't mean he can't take a break to bend that mind with an 80s Gilliam classic.

Convicted Cinephiles #55 - Spoiler Alert

TheCinephilesversion 2.5 are back for their first episode recorded in 2015. Still dealing with the departure of co-host Michaela, Matty andStevilor joined by Casey White and JJ Webb for a completely mind bending podcast to leave all you brains hurting. Recorded deep within a temporal rift, our panel brings you a very special time travel episode. With various means of jumping through time including time machines, possessed evil books and good ol' fashioned "Groundhog Day"-ing, the guys debate the validity of each movie and their methods, while Matty says things theJagewill NEVER forget. These are our Staff Picks of the week! Casey has a very creative way of grouping films together to watch them, whether it be by genre, actor or other such connections. While trying to watch every movie that featured the Rolling Stones classic track "Sympathy for the Devil", he came across the late 90sDenzelWashington thriller Fallen. Also starring John Goodman, this movie gives satisfying twists and a...

Convicted Cinephiles #54 - Spacejacking!

This is a monumental episode of Convicted Cinephiles for two reasons. First, and sadly, this is the final episode of co-host Michaela. We all love here and wish her well, as Stevil and Matty move on as Convicted Cinephiles 2.5. And secondly, for the first time in the established format of the show we're tackling a usual holiday marathoner in a super sized five movie episode! Yes, we are going ending our 2014 with a James Bond cast! We have four of six Bonds recognized, as we bring in Demigod Rob and Shogun Gamer's Casey White to bed women, drive sweet cars, indiscriminately kill bad guys and play with those cool gadgets. Connery would approve! (Lazenby would not.) These are our Staff Picks of the week! After months and months of Matty pushing it and recommending it as a Staff Pick, Stevil finally got around to checking out Alan Partridge (Alpha Papa) and loved it. Brilliant character comedy as only Steve Coogan could deliver it, coupled with supporting work from Colm Meaney and Darr...
