A light-hearted comedic spoiler free movie podcast focusing on the week's new cinema releases. Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano spend their hard earned (or borrowed) cash to see the latest film releases and tell you what they thought. Because they don't get in for free, their opinions are honest. Honestly! May contain funny bits (they're both Groundlings trained improvisers) and strange non sequiturs (Anthony has a degree in film and Darren has an Olympic medal in rambling). Maybe some naughty words too.

Addictive ear candy, temptation tempts the temptee.

The Michelangelo of writing, teams up with the Einstein of life observation to take you on a journey that no one else can pilot. Your ticket gives you an upgrade to where “performance opinion” is served to perfection. Enter their world to upsize your movie experience for free and savour every morsel. If your movie left you feeling shortchanged don’t despair. Darren and Anthony provide a satisfying dose of frustration validation that will tick every box, plus others you hadn’t even considered. They’ll birth a new word, a new idiom, to satisfy their dedication to create the image, whilst slapping on a copy-write notification in verbal parentheses (mid sentence, and in Olympic timing). Big screen, small screen, they’ll do the work to keep you keen.

No rules apply except for when they do. It’s deadly serious except for when it’s not. And it’s a review show when they come back from a tangent (guaranteed to be hilarious), that can go to a galaxy far far away. Impromptu singing, impersonations, some singing, banter, a little singing, debates, maybe some singing, and ramblings that deserve their own network series. ‘Seinfeld’ gave us ‘The Serenity Now’, ‘The Marine Biologist’ and ‘The Soup Nazi’. These guys fill the void and bring us delicious nonsense such as The Whore’s Bath, The Reluctant Photographer and The A§§ Flag Flying. You’ll never want something more than this.

... in Santa Monica on the movie show they are anything they want to be
They could be ‘Star Wars’ turned 40, or ‘Rick and Morty’
And you wouldn’t know the difference
Or would you?

I feel like Darren needs sedation occasionally but that aside it's a great moviecast. Theres SO many movie podcasts but this one doesn't take itself seriously which I like.
