yes!

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!

Used to be Stimulating Discussion of Film

Two months ago I would have given the podcast five stars, but as of late it has become quite smug. While I have no problem listening to different opinions of film (I embrace it), when a reviewer starts to insult other viewers who opinion differs, it comes off as elitist. The last review of "The Hobbit" was as annoyingly hyperbole as the film itself. At one point the host says (I am paraphrasing) that he sees anyone's thought process who likes "The Hobbit" he sees as alien. I actually fell asleep during "The Hobbit". by no means did I love it but I quite enjoyed the last hour. It swept me away. I suppose that makes me an alien or what is really unsettling somehow inferior.

The three star rating is based on previous podcasts like the ones on "Flight, "The Master" (my #1 film so far 2012, can I also like "The Hobbit" and not have "alien thought process"?) and many others.

Just be aware if you like "Life of Pi", "Cloud Atlas", and "The Hobbit" prepared to feel annoyed by the cliche of the self righteous critic.

And I realize that perhaps my review is hyperbole. The circle is round.
