Great movie chat from 2 awesome dudes

Have now listened to 2 of their shows and both have been a great listen. They get to the point and tackle the movie topic very well. Has made me want to go back and listen to their back catalogue.

Great stuff: keep 'em coming

Awesome podcasts Anders (& Adam: can't forget you - thanks for introducing me!). Good knowledge (some incredibly esoteric - especially with Dr Bob's erudite analysis), funny jokes, interesting commentary, some cool recommendations..

I've just listened to 6 or 7 in 3 days, including all of the Game of Thrones: didn't see the time fly by!

To paraphrase your friend Philip: "keep 'em coming!"
