The LoFi Top 5 Movie Podcast

The LoFi Top 5 Movie Podcast

Ship It Studios is bringing you the top contenders from the world's biggest TV & Film categories to see who comes out on top. Every episode, hosts Jeremy Toeman (@jtoeman, representing #genx) and JT White (@thebsideoflife our #millennial) take on a unique #LoFi Top 5 list, with an assemblage of nostalgia and some surprising insights into filmmaking and storytelling. Their ever-evolving format includes "the Shawshank" (the undebatable category definer), a guess-that-movie-by-a-five-word-description game, and a few rounds of "contender pong" for all the entries that didn't make the Top Five final list.

With the Oscars in our rearview mirror, this week the boys wanted to do a little retrospective on The Best Picture category. As it turns out, there are a LOT of winners that both Gen-X Jeremy and Millenial JT took issue with, and it starts all the way back in the 1920s. Jeremy does his 5 words on the fly, JT's list is in complete disarray, it's the sweatiest podcast to date, and all that happens in the first 10 mins. So whe...

This week the boys are going back in time, to the week of March 11th, for the release of Ryan Reynolds's new Netflix release "The Adam Project". Of course, the LoFi Top 5 is not a review show. Instead, Jeremy and JT have prepared some games, put together some questions, and come up with all kinds of opinions about the film. Expects lists, expect time travel talk, and expect the perfect amount of Billy Zane talk. LoFiTop...

In honor of dear ol' St. Patrick, a Welshman though he be, the lads have a craic this week at the Top 5 Irish movies of all time. It's not all Leprechauns and Pots O' Gold in this episode, oh no. While JT took to the more classic pictures, Jeremy was more of a chancer this week. Did the boys make of a bag of the episode, walking away scarlet-like, or did the fellas turn in a fierce performance...you be the judge? So gra...

Have you ever been scrolling through your favorite streaming service, seen a favorite actor or three, and thought "Oh man, this is gotta be good with this cast" just to be horribly let down? Well, the boys certainly have, and they've got a fair amount to say about it. So come Bond with the LoFi Top 5 guys as a Valentine's Day hangover, this episode is Full Throttle...

It was the best of dates, it was the worst of dates. Today’s episode hits all ends of the romance spectrum but is focused on themes of some kind of courtship in movies. So whether it's ball pits in IKEA or colonics in 1990’s Los Angeles, we hit some of the best (and not-so-best) date nights in movies. Also, we announce some pretty big news about the LoFiTop5 in this episode, give a listen! LoFiTop5 Podcast Website: https://www....

While your hosts knew that in the week leading up to the Super Bowl we’d be doing a football episode, we definitely called an audible once we discovered… there are not actually that many football movies!? Worse yet, some of our favorites (well, one in particular) are really more of a perseverance coming-of-age story, so we had to take a knee on that one. So let’s call this one a bit of a wildcard, and hopefully, we can all agree it...

While there are no bleeps or blorps in this episode, we are in fact talking about robots. But not just robots, we mean the cool robots. The ones who smoke cigarettes in the high school boys' bathroom and wear leather jackets. OK, maybe not THAT cool, but it is what we’d refer to as… liquid cool.

The 1990s introduced us to many legendary characters, from the kid who fights off the home invasion all the way to the kid who sees dead people. But which of those characters really had a cultural impact, and to whom? This week JT and Jeremy dive into the characters from the 90s who had the longest cultural impact on Millennials and GenX’ers.

As much as most of us want to put 2021 as quickly into the rear view mirror as we can, JT and Jeremy still had a little unfinished business for the year. In a follow-up to last week’s self-referential which picks did we like the most, this time we’re addressing which movies we liked the most. If we do our math right, between us both we saw almost 100 new movies last year. In this episode we whittle it down to the top 5 movies that ...

This is the second of our “meta” episodes in which we each pick our top 5 picks of other episodes. It’s a fun way for JT and Jeremy to look back on their work in 2021. Which is about the only thing about 2021 most of us really want to reflect on anyway. But back to the movies everyone, and listen to us talking about us talking to each other…?

It's that most wonderful time of the year when the boys welcome listeners on the podcast to point out where they might have made some missteps in 2021. They get their annual dose of Mama Toeman who uses the platform to confess her love for an actor. Ryan drives through with some thoughts on the food episode. Both Beau and Jeff invite them to ponder the error of their ways from the High School episode. And Kayla makes her first ...

This week your hosts take on a very special type of “in memorandum” episode, where we pick the best final performances. Which, if anything, painted a pretty clear picture: most famous actors/actresses do *not* go out on top. Jimmy Stewart? “Old Man” in 1980’s “A Tale of Africa”. Katherine Hepburn? Small part in 1994’s meh remake of “Love Affair”. But don’t fret, dear listener, as JT and Jeremy dove into their couch cushions for a l...

While your hosts actually hate most reboots, we have a good reason for that - Hollywood does a lot of rebooting of our favorite films. We maintain instead they should reboot the ones that weren’t so great. But also not the trainwrecks - instead those mediocre films. The ones you walk out of the theater and sorta shrug your shoulders and say, yeah it was fine. But Fine is just polite for Meh. So today Jeremy and JT go through an ori...

This week the LoFiTop5 guys experiment with a new format, “keep or swap.” In each episode, they pick a performer and evaluate their career in film. One of JT or Jeremy will pick the Top 5 Movies to Keep them in, meanwhile the other picks the Top 5 Movies to Swap them with someone else. In this first episode, our Gen X’er will defend 5 of the Cruisiest Tom Cruise performances. Meanwhile, our Millennial host selects 5 of the not-so-C...

This week it's all about the Upper Lip. The good ol' Snot Mop. The Mouth Brow. In cinema, the Soup Strainer has had a glorious, if not downright majestic career. There have been Pirates with the tiniest of crumb catchers, tokers with Grass Grins, and some internationals with full-on Face Furniture. But no matter the style, both Gen-X Jeremy and Millenial JT can agree that these Lip Rugs really brought these movies together....

On the eve of Halloween, nothing seems more fitting to sink your teeth into than the Horror movies. As you might know, Jeremy doesn't take much of a Shining to the genre, so the boys took it as an Omen to bring in a ringer for this episode. They did their best to keep the Screams to a minimum, but you might want to find a Quiet Place to listen just in case. Find out just how well Jeremy has avoided Horror movies, and strap in f...

Whether it's bank robbers wearing ex-presidents’ masks, a princess imitating a bounty hunter, or a man somehow fooling his entire family by dressing up as a foreign nanny, there’s no shortage of clever disguises in movies. Then again, there’s just as many “she cut her hair a little short, but she’s not a boy!” or “single most famous person on the entire planet becomes unrecognizable due to glasses” somewhat-less-clever disguise...

It's time for another Top 5 list with the Honorable JT's presiding. This week the boys appeal to your more serious side, walking through the Top 5 Movie Lawyers ever to grace a screen. You might think it's the usual suspects, but when a few good men sit down to discuss the law in film, it can be a runaway jury...but we'll let you be the judge.
