Funny, smart film show
Very funny film podcast that captures the kind of conversation I have with my mates after seeing a film - except funnier and smarter.
Funny, entertaining, intelligent and engaging. Plus it's a great way to keep up with the film world.
Great job guys!
The Statler and Waldorf of bed-sit film-crit. These guys know their onions and don't mince their words. A must listen for fans of frothy-mouthed ranting interspersed with tender pillow talk. Keep up the good work!
