Realistic reviews of movies
Very brief, conversational discussion of movies new and old. Helpful ideas without a lot of analysis.
I don't get out to see movies as much as I'd like, so when I do go, I don't want it to be a waste of time. The Cube Critics have always provided smart and humorous reviews. And, it's great that there is now two podcasts per week. I like the quick Friday review and also enjoy the longer Monday podcast!
MN Nice Siskel and Ebert
Cube Critics are the Minnesota Nice equivalent of Siskel and Ebert: two movie buffs / film critics discussing and debating film over the cubicle wall. The beauty of the Cube Critics is you will love the opinions of one and love to hate the opinions of the other. Bite sized movie snack.
