What’s the story behind The Movie Guys? Let me tell you. The year was 2007, the place: a small Midwestern movie theater. Two idiots sitting around talking about the latest movie they had seen come up with an idea, little did they know what would become of it.
What Started The Movie Guys
When Craig Layne started Movieguys.org he never really expected it to become what it has. It began with him and his friends talking incessantly about movies to anyone that would listen, so Craig thought the movie talk was funny so, “Why not include the internet?” Movieguys.org launched in 2007 as a simple movie review blog and funny discussion lead by Craig, Dustin, and some of their friends/colleagues. They would write articles until their fingers bled, apply ointment, and write some more. Maybe it was this hard work and determination that lead to their moderate success, or just stupid luck. Probably the latter…
Funny Movie Talk Podcast Was Born: The Intermission Podcast
Fast forward to 2013, the funny movie talk podcast “Intermission Podcast,” was born. Craig and Josh get a bright idea that they should broadcast their movie conversation over the interwebs. So they got some microphones, called a couple of their craziest friends (Guy and Corey), and started recording the Intermission Podcast. Now, this quickly spiraled out of control and turned into some weird, nerdy, and hilarious show about movies and everything else. Since launching The Intermission Podcast, the Movie Guys have partnered with another podcast, The Idle Chatter Show. This isn’t the end of our podcast shenanigans, so stay tuned…
The Movie Guys Today
Many faces have come and gone, but MovieGuys.org is still here. The look and feel have changed over the years, but the premise remains the same. Just a few funny dudes talking about movies. What started as a movie blog has since become an entertainment powerhouse. Film reviews, movie podcasts, and social media has helped push the MovieGuys further than ever before. MovieGuys.org is constantly evolving with their audience and there are many great things to come in the future.
