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.
Insufferably Dull and Uninformed
When half the speakers admit they haven’t seen the past work of the director in question, it’s usually a bad sign.
