About Us

Each week a cast of film-obsessed nerds with selected colleagues and friends sit down and use one of our many patented formats to compare, contrast, and insult each other for your cinematic amusements with situational debates created from their favorite films and shows 

Example: Could James Bond be a Chef? 

Should The Ghostbusters have their own restaurant?

What would Indiana Jones and Lara Croft's wedding look like?

Maybe you wanna find out if Conan The Barbarian could teach Sex Ed?

You get the picture.

At The Reel Debaters, we have all your film needs covered arguing the best releases big and small, and reassessing great films by looking at them through a multi-member podcast

In between debates, you can also listen to The Reel Talk Sessions where we trade stories, behind-the-scenes knowledge, and thoughts on the world of motion pictures and television and bonus content with Special Features, which are interviews from behind the scenes in the film industry.

Welcome to Where The Art Of Cinema Meets The Power Of Debate.
