might I say... BEST duo?!?!

I live in a small, small town in Quebec (so you know REAL winters) and I’ve been listening to the show for years now. it’s always a good laugh to "have you around" when winter’s here, which is when you have summer 😅😅
So yeah you always help me when I’m down or even when I’m fine and I just wanna have a GREAT laugh ahah
LOVE THE INTRO
10/10 ahahah

Fantastic show, fantastic hosts

Amy and Paul are both fantastic and have incredible insight into the movies. I love their interplay and look forward to new episodes every week. Some HDTGM listeners are all “it’s no the same, 1 star” but that’s just rigid and close minded and obviously a different group than those who listened to The Canon. I think anyone who liked both will LOVE this show. This is a great, accessible, and funny discussion of what have been deemed the best films of all time.
