Earwolf, Paul Scheer & Amy Nicholson
TV & FilmFilm History

Listen up, film fans! Actor & comedian Paul Scheer and film critic Amy Nicholson want your advice as they make the ultimate list of the greatest movies of all time. In Season 1, they watched every one of the AFI’s Top 100 films...and decided they could kick off half. Now, they're filling in the gaps by investigating wildly diverse areas of film through miniseries on topics like horror movies, documentaries and romantic comedies, with help from listeners' picks. Along the way, they’ll dissect iconic scenes, spotlight their favorite characters, and talk to some of the actors and directors who worked on these classics. And when Unspooled has built their own list of the best movies on earth, they'll blast them into space to be immortalized for eternity. Seriously.

  • Like you better like the word “like”

    Here is an example of any episode of this podcast “Like….like like like. LIKE like. Like like like like. Like like”. For 60 minutes. All spoken with vocal fry. The only part of the podcast where you’ll hear any other word is the ads.

  • Amy = Negatibity

    Really want to like this pod but often find it exhausting and dragged out by a consistent attitude of negativity/dislike of the films they watch. Every episode, I’m just waiting for the moment Amy shares her obscure critiques. Also, Amy… do you like/enjoy any of the movies you and Paul review? If you do like one, can you at least fake excitement/joy from it. more

  • Get Paul a new co-host…

    This is now the second podcast I have had to quit due to the incredibly annoying tone and cadence of Amy’s voice. It is so incredibly distracting. I briefly scrolled the other reviews here and it seems that so many others agree. Why aren’t they making a change? Paul, love you… stick to HDTGM until they find you a new co-host. What a shame that producers aren’t taking note. *shrug*

  • This podcast has enriched my life

    Love this pair and their appreciation of movies. I’ve watched so many more, and more varieties of genres, just because they discussed them in a way that whetted my appetite. I enjoy movies more thanks to Amy & Paul. You guys are wonderful.

  • First time reviewer, long time listener.

    Been a fan since episode 1. Love when Paul and Amy bring their own interpretations and surprise the other with it, making the conversation about the film(s) more than that of being right or wrong, or it’s good or bad. And as always, great to discover new films to see.
