Awesome!

Scott’s dulcet tones and Chris’s quirky humour is like listening to a couple of friends banter while relaxing on the patio. Their knowledge and personal transparency has kept me going on a few long drives.

Intelligent!!

It is a pleasure listening to two fellas who have an obvious love for movies... AND know what they are talking about. The speak intelligently and without overt unexamined bias. Chris and Scott will help you understand and appreciate every movie genre! So good.

It changed the way I look at movies

I thought this podcast was entirely devoted to the movie Breakdown (the 1997 thriller starring Kurt Russel). So I was a little disappointed at first by the lack of Kurt Russel or Breakdown related content. However, after listening to a few episodes, I began to learn what movies actually were. I've learned to dissect character arcs with Chris and identify tropes with Scott. It turns out that other movies are a complex and beautiful storytelling medium, not just Kurt Russel's 1997 classic thrill-ride Breakdown.
