Overview: TRex Movie Reviews is a newer podcast furnishing a fresh means of dissecting and critiquing movies new and old while also providing previews for upcoming movies. Presently, there are 3 episodes created and narrated by Anthony, a Buffalo native like myself.
What I loved: First off, hats off to Anthony. Making the choice to follow your passion and do something you love is extremely admirable and so far, his first few episodes are very entertaining and informational. This podcast will definitely be a must-listen as more episodes are released.
For starters, the quality of the podcast is awesome for a newer publication. Anthony’s voice is crystal clear, animated, paced well, and the sound in general is perfect for easy listening.
Anthony’s passion for movies is transparent and it’s easy to tell this podcast will not be your typical black and white media outlet. He advises you do not need to be a movie buff to enjoy his reviews. This podcast is for anyone and everyone who simply enjoys watching films.
Anthony offers spoiler warnings for those who haven’t seen the movie before he dives into his review. During the episodes, he doesn’t hold back. Anthony meticulously describes the plots, main characters, his favorite things and what may have disappointed him during the movie.
Most importantly, I feel TRex Movie Reviews will grow to be an amazing podcast because Anthony truly cares about other people’s opinions. His own opinion is not the end-all, be-all of opinions. He wants to hear your thoughts whether you agree with him or even strongly oppose his review.
What I didn’t: Being that TRex Movie Reviews is a newer podcast, I haven’t found many aspects I haven’t liked. There are a few things I hope Anthony will do in the future however. I hope Anthony is able to review movies of ALL genres as well as cover comparisons of books versus their movie counterparts. I hope the podcast is able to feature reviews on popular movies and indie movies too. It’s always exciting to discover a hidden movie gem you never knew existed.
I’m also hoping Anthony will review Dark Places, based on the book by Gillian Flynn and starring Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, which happens to come out a day after my birthday this summer!
