Insightful, funny and just keeps getting better!

A treat for the ears and the mind! Covers a wide-ranging spectrum of films for all kinds of movie lovers. Good banter between the hosts. Would love for them to let their individual personalities shine through, though that may happen more naturally as time goes on.
