Movierob Interview and ‘Take Shelter’ Review

In this, my first time interviewing someone on my podcast, I sat down with Movierob. He is one of my blog film critic heroes. I know he is to many others as well.

I was so happy when he agreed to be on my podcast. In addition to interviewing him, we had a chance to chat about the surrealistic film: ‘Take Shelter.”

To the fans of Movierob (including me) I am collecting voicemails to be played on a future podcast. In a similar way the LAMBcast does it, record a sound file on your phone, stating congratulations and random messages for Rob. Please email them to me at to be played on my episode highlighting his achievement of 3000 reviews.

The Damien Riley Podcast #18 – ‘Take Shelter’

I hope you enjoy my 2 min 30 second review of this film. See you next time!

Occasionally a movie comes along that you discover accidentally and it completely alters your definition of what a great movie is. Take Shelter is a 2011 movie directed by Jeff Nichols and starring Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain, and Shea Whigham. Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or from himself.” -IMDB

#17 – My Best Picture Pick

It’s been a good Oscar season, a little mediocre but good. I enjoyed so many films this past year it’s always odd choosing from such a short list. I offer you this less-than-three-minute-episode to hopefully lead you over to read some of my longer written works. See you after the Oscars!
