Description of the podcast:
At 电影不无聊, you meet two movie fans who are the hosts of this podcast – 金刚 and 喜儿. In the podcast they talk about new movie releases, movie news and movies stars. Each episode has a topic. For example, there are episodes named “The 10 best movies of 2012” and “The 10 worst movies of 2012”. In these two episodes, the hosts comment on different movies and scenes, tell “behind the scenes” stories, and explain some background of the movies. All these reasons serve to support why they added these movies to the list. Some of the podcasts are “list” podcasts while others are about a single film or series. Each episode is very long so it might be something that could be listened to in parts.
电影不无聊 is a excellent podcast tailored for people interested in movies. It’s also good because it requires a lot of concentration due to the length.
