A for effort
If you came here to enjoy predictably cheery reviews of the seasonal movies we all love, you’re in the wrong place.
The hosts are indeed engaging, but pretty much bash everyone from Clark Griswold to Rudolph. You can’t blame them for being the age they are, but they don’t have the same grasp as older listeners do on how classic these earlier movies are.
Complaining that the stop motion was terrible in Rudolph is like saying the painted backgrounds are awful in the Wizard of Oz. These were made many years ago. And going off on Charlie Brown needing an anti-depressant? That’s just diving way to deep.
“A” for effort though.
The podcast rules
Alexis and Megan deliver the podcast world the x-mas podcast series it deserves. Where has this b en my whole life.
Hilarious and wonderful
I love how Alexis and Megan take on this absurd genre...I hope they explore Valentine’s Day movies next!
