MMO is talk radio for movie fans with weekly news shows, reviews, previews, and special guests. We celebrate the Oscars by making awards season year round, without the stuffiness. If you love cinema, if you love showbiz, welcome home.
The Mike, Mike, and Oscar podcast is a must-listen for any film lover or award show enthusiast. While I haven't watched the Oscars in years, this podcast somehow manages to make the awards season exciting again. They cover the year in film in a way that the Oscars themselves can't, providing a deep dive into the world of cinema from production to casting and everything in between. The enthusiasm of the hosts is infectious, and their love for their craft and audience shines through in every episode.
One of the best aspects of this podcast is the amount of content they put out on a regular basis. They cover not only the latest movies and award shows, but also do special episodes looking at older films and exploring how they tie into new properties. Their research is thorough, and they provide well-reasoned analysis and reviews that are both informative and entertaining. The hosts have great chemistry together, making it feel like you're just having a conversation with friends about movies.
While there aren't many negative aspects to this podcast, one minor downside is that if you miss an episode, they tend to move on from it fairly quickly. This means that if you don't listen to every episode, you may miss out on some discussions or insights. However, they do cover a wide range of films and topics, so even if you do miss an episode here or there, there's always something new to look forward to.
In conclusion, The Mike, Mike, and Oscar podcast is a gem for film enthusiasts looking for a comprehensive source of entertainment news and reviews. The hosts' passion for film is palpable, their research is top-notch, and their dedication to providing high-quality content is evident in every episode. Whether you're interested in keeping up with the latest movies or diving into the intricacies of award season, this podcast has something for everyone. Give them a listen - you won't regret it!

And we can't help but enjoy some gambling over/unders as we bet on what contenders will be hits or misses at the Box Office. Make sure you follow, like, and subscribe to The B.O.

WHAT'S IN THIS OSCAR RACE CHECKPOINT - Top of the Show. AlsoMike explains why he needed to add this intro before Part II of his recording with Mike 1. KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON TRAILER 2 Review - 2:05 Even avoiding trailer spoilers, M2 realizes why this was such a Scorsese passion project. There are also obvious Oscar contending performances and production values showcased here, and find out who stole the entire trailer. SANCTUARY REVIEW - 8:32 Also Mike does a quickie non-spoiler review of Margaret Qualley & Christopher Abbott's great work in the steamy thriller, Sanctuary, now on VOD. ALSO MIKE'S TOP 10 FILMS OF THE YEAR SO FAR - 12:00 (PS... I AM A DOPE BECAUSE I FORGOT PAST LIVES IN HERE. SO PUT THAT IN MY TOP 5 AND THEN YOU ACTUALLY GOT A TOP 11.) OUR HCA MIDSEASON AWARD WINNERS RECAP - 13:51 We edit back into the Mikes' conversation about the Hollywood Critics Association Midseason Awards including their recent 5 year track record, where we agree and disagree with the winners, and whether or not we think some of them can go the distance. MARVEL RELEASE DATE SHIFTS - 18:55 We speculate about whether or not the MCU can rebound as Disney has shuffled some dates. M1 proposes a Kang recasting, we question Blade on Valentine's day, and there are more Fantastic 4 rumors. OTHER DISNEY RELEASE DATE SHIFTS - 25:50 Avatar sequels scheduled through 2031 make Mike a dull boy. Plus, Moana and yes, a Taika Waititi Star Wars are still on the schedule. NETFLIX RELEASE DATE ADDITIONS - 28:03 We discuss why Wikipedia is lying about Adam Sandler's Spaceman, and we debate whether or not Chicken Run 2: Dawn of the Nugget should go bleep itself. SONY RELEASE DATE CHANGES - 30:03 Queue the ominous organ as Dumb Money moved into September, The Book of Clarence moves out of 2023, and then Eileen will kick off Anne Hathaway's next Oscar campaign this December. THE TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES DRAMA - 31:42 Mike1 chronicles the heroic story about how 3 great directors saved TCM from a mean old baddie who wanted to fire everybody. NEW DCU SUPERMAN & LOIS LANE CASTINGS - 36:26 Why we're hopeful but a little skeptical that James Gunn is making the right decisions here with his castings for Superman: Legacy. TRAILER-PALOOZA - Summer '23 Edition. DUNE PART TWO: Trailer 2 - 39:33 Dope fight scenes, egg Elvis, and political intrigue have us hopeful. But we still worry about if we'll engage with what we didn't enjoy part 1. CHALLENGERS: Trailer 1 - 43:38 Will this movie be too steamy for us? What if Rihanna soundtracked everything? Plus, we wonder about the invention of the sauna. DUMB MONEY: Trailer 1 - 47:24 We debate if the trailer gives us Oscary vibes. Plus, we shout out our love for this cast, how they went against type, and why we love Craig Gillespie with one caveat. DRIVE AWAY DOLLS: Trailer 1 - 51:30 We talk about why Pedro Pascal is in trouble and what other films this makes us remember. Plus, we reveal our crack research on why the Coen Brothers broke-up. PRISCILLA: Teaser - 54:42 Why Mike 1 is willing to overlook how Hollywood is trying to force Jacob Elordi's stardom on him because he's obsessed with this teaser. PIXAR'S ELIO: Teaser - 57:11 Why this cute premise could give Pixar a much needed win after Elemental. KRAVEN THE HUNTER: Trailer 1 - 59:14 Does this look sick? Or disgusting? Or what's the difference? THE BEANIE BUBBLE: Trailer 1 - 1:01:27 Why we're excited to watch this cast but skeptical of branding rights in this Apple adaptation of the book about the Beanie Baby craze. FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY'S: Trailer 1 - 1:04:02 Why we are proponents of scaring young children to keep them in line, and some insight into AlsoMike's Funko Pop collection. OUTRO - 1:08:00 Our Socials, your homework, what's coming next, words of wisdom, and a shocking debate about hot dogs.
