Reviews of all the latest movies and TV shows. We share our expectations going in, general thoughts, and whether or not it’s worth your time and money. We will always let you know before we talk about spoilers on these ones, and we keep the first part of the reviews completely spoiler free! From there we breakdown the entire movie. We discuss everything from our favorite scenes to the best, and worst, performances. Also, full analysis on the acting, writing, directing, cinematography, score and much more! We finish every review with our score - both Aaron and Eric will individually score the movie out of 10, before averaging the scores for the Official Made For Movies Rating! See the scoring chart below with some examples to get an idea of what we love and what we lose sleep over…
9.5-10 (ALL TIME CLASSIC): Eligible for the Made for Movies Hall of Fame - we recommend owning this movie forever.
Examples: The Departed, The Matrix, Superbad, Pulp Fiction, Jaws, Curb Your Enthusiasm (TV series)
9-9.4 (AMAZING, AWARD WORTHY): Nearly flawless films that are usually the best movies of the year when they came out - worth owning.
Examples: Truman Show, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Dallas Buyers Club, Kill Bill, Queens Gambit (TV Series)
8-8.9 (GREAT): Highly recommend seeing this in theaters or paying whatever it costs to rent it at home - you will not be disappointed!
Examples: Tenet, The Hangover, Face/OFF, The Big Short, Arrival, Dexter (TV series)
7-7.9 (GOOD): Minor problems but worth going to see in a movie theater.
Examples: Knives Out, Wonder Woman, Inside Man, Neighbors, How I Met Your Mother (TV Series)
6-6.9 (ABOVE AVERAGE): A lot of good, some bad, but worth $5 for a rental at home
Examples: Fate of the Furious, The Meg, The Other Guys, Entourage (TV Series)
5-5.9 (AVERAGE): Meh, don’t pay money for these, but they can help pass the time if free on streaming!
Examples: Sonic, Hannibal (film), Daredevil (2003), Resident Evil, Scary Movie 2
4-4.9 (BAD): Not worth anyones time, maybe a couple clever or amusing parts.
Examples: Suicide Squad, Terminator 3, The Core, Fantastic 4
2-3.9 (VERY BAD): Among the worst movies of the year - the only way to watch is with a drinking game.
Examples: Justice League, The Ring 2, Scream 3, Battleship
0-1.9 (ALL TIME AWFUL): Eligible for the Made for Movies Hall of Shame. These will go down in history as the worst movies ever. Watching them can lead to severe anger and regret - don't say we didn’t warn you!
Examples: Godzilla (1998), The Little Things, Jaws 4, Charlies Angels: Full Throttle, A Good Day to Die Hard

The highest honor we can give out. These are very special reviews and retrospectives we will be doing on a monthly basis. Each month we will induct either a movie, actor, or writer/director into the Hall of Fame. To celebrate, we will do an entire episode dedicated to the inductee. Only 4 from each category will be inducted each year. For movies, we will do an in depth review, as well as discuss the films legacy. For Actors and Writer/Directors, we will do a career retrospective. We will do a deep dive through their entire filmography, discussing all of our favorite films that they worked on and also ranking their top performances. Eric and Aaron will determine the nominees but who gets inducted will be up to our listeners so make sure you vote!
The Matrix (1999), inducted March 2021
Leonardo DiCaprio (career), inducted April 2021

The Worst of the worst. Movies that are not only bad, but hilariously bad. We focus on movies that we felt had no right to be as bad as they were and left us with total disappointment. These are the ultimate Hollywood missed opportunities but together we will get through them and have some good laughs. Maybe, just maybe we can find some entertainment in these nightmare inducing films.
Justice League (2017), inducted March 2021
More to come...
The Ultimate debate! We will determine who the GOATS of the industry are. This will be a monthly feature with exciting categories that are sure to make for a fun discussion. The best superhero movies of all time, best actors of all time, best fight scenes of all time, best directors of all time, worst movies of all time, and best movies of all time are just some of the Rankings we have planned, so stay tuned!
Reviews of some blast from the pasts. Typically these will be done on an anniversary of a movies original release date. We will also do them for movies that have connections to new releases coming out. These reviews will have full spoilers and we will announce these in advance so our listeners have time to watch before we do a deep dive into the movie and every aspect of it.
These will be very special episodes that we do monthly. It will either be a movie franchise or a TV series with multiple seasons. For movies, we will go through the entire franchise in chronological order, 1 episode per movie. For TV series we will be doing an episode for each season of the show. These will be very in depth reviews into every aspect of the show/movie and even discuss the making of with awesome trivia and fun facts. We will always announce these well in advance for our listeners to give everyone time to watch along with us!
