funny people who like movies, great show
Very fun for the very smart. Zero percent gossip, one hundred percent intellectual film talk. Discussions usually have a very quickly paced back-and-forth, so it can be a little difficult to keep up at times, even when they pause to sit on/try to clarify some points. Otherwise very satisfying. These guys are great critics, always having something that you wouldn't think of while watching the film at hand. They're a provoking, entertaining, explorative bunch when it comes to cinematic culture.
Smart dudes talking about movies. I love it.
Thought-provoking movie discussions
Great show with intellectual approaches to current movies, giving each film a very three-dimensional approach. Even though there's no clear "good" or "bad" conclusion of the movies, this serves to give the listener many different approaches or interpretations of what we see, more so than a standard written review. Current movie topics are also discussed in this fashion (which I find equally interesting), as well as random past movies being recommended [or not]. I like talking about and discussing movies endlessly so I find this show very entertaining and I would recommend it to anyone who shared this interest. love movies as well as this podcast, keep it up!
(however I gotta say, I strongly disliked The Amazing Spider-Man due to its astoundingly high number of flaws, both in the ridiculous writing of the story and basic moviemaking, had to get that out there after it received a relatively decent review) Overall, I'm loving the reviews and I look back at movies I've seen in new ways after these great discussions!
