Mind-bogglingly uneven.

I understand that not everyone can see every film, but not sure why this group was put together when some of the cinematic omissions they mention are simply mind-boggling at times, not to mention the moments when some titles are dismissed so flippantly because of the opinions of some people who can't even seem to view the movie within a different context (hey, opinions are subjective, but that doesn't stop you from trying to see things from other angles).

I feel dirty...and I like it!

Great podcast, with hosts who know their stuff, engage in the content, and have fun discussing 'dirtyyyy' movies of yester-year. I've knocked a star off the review though for the awful French woman...I'm unsure why she's included, as she clearly doesn't have the pedigree of the guy hosts and often seems bored by the movie of the week. She's terrible, honestly. I won't even mention the accent! Give the pod a chance though and just pretend her vague, foggy contributions are simply white noise.

Perfect Slice of Nostalgia.

I really enjoy the Fatal Attractions podcast. It's great for remembering those films you'd forgotten about (Often on purpose). The chat is always interesting and funny and with 4 very different takes on it. It's helped me look at things from a different perspective and made me see things in these films I'd never noticed before. I especially like the inclussion of Amelie Thomas. She often has a different take on stuff, and it's her ideas that often lead to my alternate view of things. Keep up the good work. :)
