The best movie podcast I’ve heard
This is just a great podcast about movies. The host is intelligent and passionate about movies. The talks are consistently lively and well-informed. If you love movies, this is for you.
Yes Grace and Norm!!
Great for movie buffs
I really enjoy the deep-dive on movies Both the host and guest come armed with great insights and cool annecdotes about the film's making. Great selection too. I love it when the guest picks an oddball flick like Superman 3 to talk about, and to Wilner's credit, he always sounds engaged and knowledgeable about all the movies they talk about. Highly recommend.
