I'll be the first review
Jim and Ted cover the movie space well with a cool twist by reviewing movie trailers before the movie is released to help you determine whether or not you want to see it. You can hear their friendship and life's experience come through in their conversations about movies. Well done gents.
Jim and Ted are a fun listening session of informative trailer junkiness (I mean it in the best way). Ted has an insight of the movie industry and technicality of the industry along with his passion for movies, acting, scenery, and more knowledge. Jim has a junky mindset where he gets into the core of the trailer from of his psychological perspective. It’s great! Give it a listen!
Make sure no movies get by you!
The idea for this podcast is great all on its own. I mean, there is so much to talk about from just a trailer. These guys have fun chemistry and talk their way through all of the new trailers each week! The conversation ranges all over pop culture and makes for a really engaging conversation.
They cover the good, the bad and the obscure. Highly recommend!
