Fun Easy Listening!
Married couple film podcasts are by far the most entertaining and AB Film Review is no expectation. Andrew and Bernadette's unique brand of arguing bring an often hilarious edge to their insightful film critique. Once I start listening, I can’t stop. Recommended! - Kevin, cinematic randomness
