A real nice take and style on movie reviews and at long last a breath of fresh air from bombast and conflict.
Off to a great start
The camaraderie between Victor and Darian is natural and makes for enjoyable listening. The podcast is a good mixture of reviewing the movies they love and fun facts about the actual movie production. A must-listen podcast for movie nerds!
Love these guys!
I have thoroughly enjoyed the first few episodes of Film Loop. Victor and Darian are hilarious together and I have laughed aloud on the bus more than a few times. I am nowhere near a film buff, but they make the movies accessible and their analysis is interesting and insightful. I can't wait to hear more!!
