Customer ReviewsSee All
Great podcast and lots of variety
This has been another of my favorite podcasts for some time. Tom also lends his talent to the excellent MOVIES ABOUT GIRLS podcast (a weekly 4 hour + show!) The hosts are closer to my age and I appreciate that most of all. I love to hear about real Grindhouse experiences and they mention the good old days of 42nd St. frequently in their shows. A recent show about animated DC comics films was really refreshing and it's not a genre I'm particularly interested in. Give this show a listen and I think you'll really enjoy it.
If you love movies you should be listening to this podcast.
Though you might not always agree with Thomas and Derrick's opinions, they are well spoken and articulated and are always worth listening to. This podcast is an easy recommendation, and no matter who you are, no matter what you're doing, go listen to this podcast.
