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 rileycentral@gmail.com 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!
