About The Show

The Raw Footage Podcast is a film review show hosted by Colin Gazeley from Bath, England, where as soon as I come out of the cinema I record my raw, unedited thoughts about the film I've just seen. I then release these reviews in podcast form with only minor edits for clarity and excess background noise.

The basic philosophy of this show is that the initial impression you get of a film is often the most accurate one.


Annual Top 10

The criteria for inclusion on these lists is that the film must have been given a legal release in the UK during the year in question. For reasons of being able to release a podcast before the end of the year, I take the start of the year to be Boxing Day. This way I can take my time during the last weeks of the year to properly compile a podcast without having to rush things with last minute films. For example, The Artist was released in the UK on 30th December 2011. By my rules it is eligible for the 2012 list not the 2011 one.
