Best. Movie. Reviews. Ever.
Absolutely, positively the best short movie reviews I've ever heard. Utterly brilliant, wacky, funny...I could go on but that would be boring so just do this: Download a bunch, load up your iWhatever and just listen. Trust me. You will love them.
Made of Awesome
Funny, insightful, incisive without being biting, loving without being schmaltzy, deep without being pretentious. Made. Of. Awesome.
