Mighty Movie Podcast

September 10, 2009

Mighty Movie Podcast is brought to you by Dan Persons, who goes out and interviews a director of current movies in the theater. Dan’s podcast is very insightful and has very balanced questions. For example, his interview with Ang Lee on his movie, Taking Woodstock, is interesting when the topic of homosexuality during Woodstock arises. Though the movie didn’t have the greatest outcome in the box office, this insight in movies from the directors really connects me as the audience to the film in a greater way. Now I feel I actually have a better understanding of what was going inside the director’s mind as he was making the movie.

Dan is a great interviewer who you can really lean back and listen to. The format is typical, where Dan first teases the film, gives us part of the trailer, and then commences with the interview. There are some audio problems here and there, but nothing that can’t be fixed in future episodes. With a little polishing here or there, future interviews with directors, writers, and filmmakers will allow the audience to really let the podcast grow. What I would like to see is some audience participation in asking questions, perhaps. It would be nice to have some twitter feed, or other platform, in which we know upcoming interviews he may have and questions we could ask for ourselves. Other than that, Mighty Movie Podcast really gives independent films some press as I just recently found the movie “We Live in Public” and want to go see it badly. So after this review, I’m going to download that episode where Dan interviews Ondi Timoner, the director of that film.

Check out the podcast, which is updated constantly on his blog. If you want another opinion, listen or read Edgy’s Podcast Review’s of this podcast.
