Can't wait for the next episode
I just tuned in for the first podcasts of Total Movie Recall and I LOVE this show! The hosts are brutally honest about how their personal stories interweave with the movie watching experience. They discuss movies that have been around for a decade or more, but the re-imagining of them through the eyes of the hosts breathes new life into old favorites. Makes you want to watch the movies all over again. Funny, raunchy, heartfelt.
Rad podcast about movies and life and nonsense like that. Very funny, insightful, and overall just great.
Total movie awesome!
Makes me nostalgic for the movies I loved growing up... Insightfully and humorously picked apart by the hosts. Looking forward to re-watching along as I listen.
