Spling Launches New Podcast Series 'Confessions of a Movie Critic'


Spling has been reviewing film since 2007, racking up thousands of written and spoken reviews over the years. Resident film critic at 2Oceansvibe.com, where he's written a weekly feature for over a decade, host of the popular Talking Movies programme on Fine Music Radio for 7 years and AFDA film school judge for 5 years, he's been there, done that and got the movie t-shirt.

After being approached by directors to give them notes on their screenplays, first edits and treatments - he launched reviewmyscript.com. Having broadcast Talking Movies for many years, which is republished as a weekly podcast, it was time to try something different. Must Love Movies is his latest venture, in which Spling watches a film with and interviews a celebrated personality and/or film industry professional in a private cinema. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, the Must Love Movies podcast has been put on ice, prompting Spling to create the stripped down series, Confessions of a Movie Critic.

This brand new podcast series is more intimate... a conversation between Spling and his listener. Clocking in under 10 minutes, Spling takes an opportunity to chat about a film, news item or topic he's recently engaged with. The podcast is recorded in one take, almost like a stream of consciousness as Spling tries to convey his thoughts. His first podcast was about the music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek, which he recently watched. His second was about the eye-opening documentary, I Am Heath Ledger about the late great actor.

While it's still early days yet... Confessions of a Movie Critic is hopefully going to give listeners an inside track to what's on Spling's mind. You can listen to more podcasts here: https://anchor.fm/confessions-movie-critic
