Not Actually Film Critics

Welcome to Not Actually Film Critics where not actual film critics critique actual films. Each week, join us as we talk about random stuff, watch movies together and review them. For every episode, we take turns picking movies that fit within a theme, which often leads us to some real hidden gems, or fun oldies that give us a blast from the past! Sometimes we will even release a sync-track of us watching the movie together, so you can sync it up to your viewing of the movie and feel like you're one of us! Follow along with our journey, and you might just discover a favorite film you've never seen before!  Also, if you have a great movie pick for one of our themes, or just want to reach out to us, feel free to email us at You can also support our podcast at Support us on Patreon!

Buckle up as the duo unveils their anticipation for upcoming anime gems that have them practically bouncing in their seats. Mox drops into Amazon's "Fleabag" and falls head over heels for its divine writing, while a wild revelation emerges: AI scribblings and CG wizardry have costume rental bigwigs quaking in existential fear. Join the banter as they dissect how on Earth "Starfield" bagged the title for most innovative gameplay. Meanwhile, Izzy conquers the briny deeps in "Dave the Diver," treating it like a high-octane Monster Hunter quest amidst sharp-toothed predators. Hold onto your gaming hats as Mox dishes out praise for the stunning gameplay of "Lies of P," and the team reviews "Death Must Die," "Power Chord," and "Cobalt Core" in a whirlwind of game-centric glory.
