3. Film Reroll
Film Reroll is a podcast is a new take on classic movies. It’s simple – the hosts take a movie and roleplay as the characters in that movie. They basically turn the movie into a tabletop role-playing game. The end result is an enjoyable podcast with a lot of laughter and good fun all around.
With Film Reroll, the movie will never go the way they are supposed to and that’s what makes it so special and enjoyable to listen to. The hosts spent a ton of effort on recreating the worlds of the movies they are playing. They try to be as movie–accurate as possible.
For instance, in the Jumanji episode, they made a whole Jumanji board with all the rhyming challenge featured in the movie. Or that time when they developed an app that can turn telephone numbers into random times and places for the Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure episode. When it comes to production, these guys always go all out.
