Podcast Preview: ‘Fate of the Furious,’ ‘Shaun of the Dead,’ and more

By  · Published on April 17th, 2017

A new week brings three new episodes.

This week is maybe the best yet over at One Perfect Pod, our podcasting channel, and features a pair of reviews of the hottest film in the land, a look back at one of the most beloved films of the 21st century, and an exploration of the success of Beauty and the Beast (the new one).

First up, the latest episode of Matthew Monagle’s After the Credits, podcasting’s only before-and-after review show. This week the film up for discussion is — what else? — The Fate of the Furious, and Matthew’s guest is film critic Erin Whitney. Find out where they land on what many are already calling the most polarizing film yet from the eight-film franchise.

Then there’s this week’s Shot by Shot podcast, the official cinematography podcast of One Perfect Shot and Film School Rejects. This go-around Geoff Todd, OPS founder, and myself, H. Perry Horton, are discussing a film that’s near and dear both to our hearts, and integral to the early success of One Perfect Shot: Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead. It’s hands down the most fun we’ve had yet with an episode.

Finally, to wrap things up, FSR head honcho Neil Miller will discussing, as mentioned, Beauty and the Beast with a superfan of the film and a box office expert.

And keep your eyes and ears tuned to our Twitter feeds — One Perfect Shot and OnePerfectPod — in case we decide to drop another Emergency Podcast sometime during the week.

Over in our corner of the internet we had a lot of really interesting posts go up yesterday, including our summer movie preview, an in-depth breakdown of The Last Jedi’s first trailer, a closer look at this year’s Cannes lineup, and 12 movies to watch after you see The Fate of the Furious.

And lastly, take a look at five of the most popular shots we tweeted over the last 24 hours. Want more? You know where to find us.
