Optimistic movie reviews for optimistic people

Latest Episodes

Episode 1: Superhero Week!

Episode 1: Aquaman (2018) and Spirder-Man 3 (2007). If you haven't subscribed to the new feed (Fresh Tomatoes: The Movie Podcast) then please go do so! We will only be posting a few of the new episodes here, and we won't be posting any of the minisodes, so you really don't want to miss out! Welcome to the new format! We are so excited to be sharing the same great content in a shiny new package! For those of you who are new to the podcast, every week, Simone le Roux and Chad Echakowitz take two movies that didn't do well critically and discuss all the good things about them, shining an optimistic light on this dark dark world. It's easy to be negative, but it's so much harder to find the positive in something, so this is the first step in your training in being a happier person. We hope we can help! Simone and Chad will also tell you whether you should take the time to watch these movies, or whether you should just let them fester in the Bargain Bin. To kick off the new format, Chad and Simone tackle two of the most divisive superhero movies of the 21st century! Watch as Chad discusses Spider-Man 3, which is one of his favourite films, and Simone reluctantly gives her thoughts. The team then tackle Aquaman, and were surprised to find that they didn't completely hate it! Don't forget to subscribe, give us a rating, and leave a comment on what you thought of these movies, or what you would like to see the team do in the future, or just your thoughts on the podcast!

It's Not That Bad Episode 45

Episode 44 -Step Up 2: The Streets (2008) andStep Sisters(2018) It's the last episode! Well... sort of. Simone and Chad say goodbye to this phase of the podcast with a final episode surrounding one of their favourite genres: Dance Movies! But this isn't the end of your weekly dose of optimistic reviews. We'll be switching to a new name but the same old content. We'll post the first few episodes of the new podcast here just so you know where to look in the future. In the meantime, enjoy this episode as Chad and Simone battle to find good things to say about the sequel that features so little of Channing Tatum that it makes no sense to have him in the film, and Netflix's attempt to solve racial tensions through dance. We can't wait for you to join us as we start this new journey with us as we join the Robots Radio Podcasting Network!

It's Not That Bad Episode 43

Episode 43 - The Love Guru(2008) and Hitman(2007) This is one of the stranger episodes that Simone and Chad have had to tackle.

Simone, following her love of video-games-turned-terrible-films, takes on Hitman, asking the very simple question: why?

It's Not That Bad Minisode Episode 2

This is the second in the Minisode series where Simone and Chad review a novel. The team are really excited for the upcoming series, and Simone and Chad dive in to the novel by Joe Hill, "NOS4A2" (2013). This is a fantastic book and if you haven't read it yet, this is a spoiler-free way to find out why you should definitely pick yourself up a copy.
