Great movie retrospectives
If you love those great Den of Geek movie retrospectives then you’ll love this. Simon Brew’s passion for film shines through and I’m really hoping this one will run and run!
Fascinating listen, nice casual style
A first podcast from Simon Brew of the excellent Den of Geek website. Nice conversational style with obvious passion for the subject at hand. Looking forward to the next episodes...
Entertaining and insightful
A really refreshing change from those film podcasts that are just people sitting around talking about what they do/don’t like about movies, this is filled with genuine insight and interesting facts about how the films got made and the fascinating stories behind them. Simon is a down-to-Earth host but his enthusiasm is evident. It’s early days, but I can only see this already great podcast getting even better.
