About Us

The Mission 250 Filmcast is a weekly podcast where hosts Denny, John, and TC are watching the Top 250 Movies of All Time, as ranked by IMDB. With each episode focusing on a single movie, and moving towards the #1 movie in reverse order, we aim to broaden the listeners viewing horizons (as well as our own), and give not only our thoughts/opinions, but also history, trivia, and insight on each film. We can be reached at mission250filmcast@gmail.com, and the full list can be found at mission250filmcast.com.

BONUS EPISODE - Your Name.

EThis week, we watch the highest grossing anime movie of all time, surpassing the 2001 classic Spirited Away. A body-swap movie like you’ve never seen, describing too much of this movies plot would be giving away some of the fun twists along the way. We will say that this movie is beautiful and is worth watching for the animation alone. Your Name., directed by Makoto Shinkai.

Episode 79 - A Clockwork Orange (Part 1)

BONUS EPISODE - PK

EThis week, we watch the 2014 smash hit (in India/China) that broke all the records for Indian Cinema at the time. Aamir Khan is as comedic as he’s ever been in this hilarious tale of an alien getting stuck on earth. Even if in the last 30 minutes the film becomes a little too preachy for our tastes, this film is totally worth a watch if you’re looking for a good 2 hours of laughs, and can be found on Netflix. PK (2014), directed by Rajkumar Hirani.

Episode 80 - Taxi Driver

EThis week, we watch Travis Bickle spiral into insanity. Containing one of Robert De Niro’s most casually quoted characters, this film is actually an extremely grim portrait of New York and its inhabitants. And if you’re a fan of Martin Scorsese’s work, this is the film that put him on the map. Taxi Driver (1976), directed by Martin Scorsese.

Episode 80 - Taxi Driver

BONUS EPISODE - Uncut Gems

EThis week, we watch an under-appreciated film from last year that is, as of today, streaming on Netflix. This movie isn’t on the top 250…but hey, we’re all stuck inside (the responsible ones, anyways - looking at you idiots packing in public pools), and is perfect if you’re looking for fictional stress to overtake your real life stress. Plus, Adam Sandler arguably gives his best performance to date. Uncut Gems (2019), directed by the Safdie Brothers (Benny and Josh).

BONUS EPISODE - Andhadhun

EThis week, we start a new format - every other week, we’ll be watching a more recent addition to the top 250 movies of all time list, and we’ll try to make them as easily stream-able for everyone as possible (stuck inside, together!). This week’s movie is currently 185 on the top 250 list, and is streaming on Netflix. If you’re looking for something fun to watch in this new world we live in, strongly consider this comedy/mystery film from India. Andhadhun (2018), directed Sriram Raghavan.

Episode 81 - Double Indemnity

EThis week, we watch the classic noir that has a “bad guy” as the protagonist for the first time in Hollywood film history. A man finds himself in the positions of both the investigator and the person being investigated in an insurance fraud scheme. Even though the film tells you who is the murderer is within the first five minutes, it manages to keep you guessing until the end. Double Indemnity (1944), directed by Billy Wilder.

Episode 83 - Lawrence of Arabia

EThis week, we watch the historical epic that not only paved the way for all blockbuster films to come after it, but also one that stands the test of time while being a work of art that will never see an equal. The list of films influenced by this masterpiece is massive, and includes every single Steven Spielberg movie, as seeing this in the theater as a child was the reason he became a director. Lawrence of Arabia (1962), directed by David Lean.
