Magic May is Awesome

I’m absolutely loving their Harry Potter marathon so far. Love the contrast in views from a book lover and a non-reader. Their opinions are priceless and definitely worth a listen and even a rewatch of some movies!

Thunder Down Under

I'm a big fan of most film review show, but I don't have a heap of Aussie ones in my downloads - so here's one to add to the list. Aside from the fun they have talking about movies, I like how with their background they can offer a little extra in their opinion.
