Their official website
I know there are a decent amount of fans of these guys here on GAF, but some of you may also not know of them. They are arguably one of the best movie reviewers online, and their format for reviews is something you really don't see anymore with the VERY large majority of reviewers on YouTube just doing quick cut 5 minute videos. Not many reviewers take the time to even show clips of the movie they are talking about, yet alone talk about it for over 20 minutes. Korey and Martin do a great job at taking on movies from a different perspective, so it's not a one size fits all sort of deal either.
They are also very great with their community, even to the point where you can drop and watch as they film a show, or even join up in one via Skype. They are all around just a standout crew and funny as hell.
Some of my favorite reviews:
Point Break
Black Mass
The Transporter: Refueled
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
No Escape
PAN

Tried a few times to talk about this man I loved spoiled as a website and now this has been pretty succesfull for them.
I would love to have the money and have a subscription to their stuff but the YT freebies will have to do for now.

These guys are just the best so funny and so logical about movies.
Just great group having a blast.

Easily my favorite movie reviews on the internet. If you want more lighthearted critics who just have fun talking about all kinds of movies, Double Toasted is perfect for you. They're casual, hilarious, and also make great points.

I also have to recommend The Identical

OP don't forget their history. These guys have been movie critics for over 10 years back when they were doing The Reel Deal on Texas cable access tv and at Spill before it got shut down. These guys are the realest movie critics you'll find and are funny as fuck.

If you watch one part of any of the reviews, watch this segment from The Transporter: Refueled review...

I nearly pissed myself the first time I saw it.

I've loved these guys since the Spill days. I am glad they were able to get this new site up and running because I really enjoy their reviews. Martin and Korey are great although I am sometimes disappointed that Tommy frequently doesn't watch the movie they are reviewing.

Keep in mind they have a love/hate relationship with Fury Road when it comes to the reaction the movie is getting.

I used to be a fan in the Spill days. But I feel like Korey talks a little too much and I absolutely hate the excessive fan interaction that was going on as late as about 9 months ago when I stopped listening. I listened for Korey and Martin not some random fan and their friend that they include. I'd prefer if they limited it to sections. Plus it sucks that Co-Host ain't around anymore.

Korey is indeed a goddamn fool, but he always manages to gather a fun and knowlegable bunch of people over the years. Reel Deal, Spill, and now Double Toasted. All iterations have had consistently great chemistry and insight. Will support them as long as they're around.

Korey has said multiple times that he is always looking for young talent to help out with the show and maybe someday takeover. Double Toasted is a business to him and he wants to make sure it lasts for a long time. These guys ain't getting any younger, especially Martin. Goodwin, Tommy, Ray, and Shea bring their own unique personalities to the show.

I laughed my ass off when Martin didn't know what Call of Duty was. I love Martin.

Last I heard Carlyle (Robert Cargill) was co-writing the script for Doctor Strange nowadays.

And Cyrus (Chris Cox) was making content on oneofus.net but I haven't followed their stuff in ages.

Been watching these two since Spill days. Korey and Martin make a fun duo. Martin's my favorite though, even if I disagree with his assessments sometimes. He makes a good counter to Korey's foolishness and even better when he starts trolling him. And every once in a while Korey will make him cackle like the Joker for a good 2 minutes, as in their latest "The Boy" review.

It's great hearing them argue sometimes when they disagree on a movie. But it's the best when the both agree that a movie sucks.

I don't watch their other live shows and stuff. I really only watch for those two and their movie reviews and trailer opinions. Much like their Spill days. Although I did listen to Lets Do This cause Cohost was great. Wish he followed them to DoubleToasted.
