Goog discussion, sometimes condescending

Usually a good discussion over what movies belong "canon" but can sometimes come across as rude towards eachother. Half the time I believe they are against eachother in a playful way but there are times Devin comes off as really condescending and rude.

Great Podcast Format, Amy is Awesome

I really like this podcast, despite the fact that it is on hiatus and unlikely to comeback as a result of Devin's past actions. However, the two hosts have really good thoughts on the movies and despite their differences have an excellent back and forth. Still worth listening to as none of the episodes are particularly dated, although their is some irony in listening to some of their discussions now about celebrities who are secretly terrible given what came out about Devin.

The male host is terrible.

I thought I'd try this podcast out because I love movies. I found out if you "love" movies, this isn't for you. The male host just bashes them like an obnoxious child. He seems to tolerate them more than anything. The female host is nice, though. I'd give this show a shot again if they got rid of the guy. He's god-awful.
