HILARIOUS & insightful

Whether they love the movie or hate the movie your sure to come away with more than a few laughs and insightful critiques of the movie making process.

A decent laugh

This is a good podcast for a laugh, but they don’t approach the movies in any format or structure. It often amounts to shouting over each other which gets boring quickly.

What a Gem

I stumbled across this podcast only recently. Jason Mantzoukas’s Beetlejuice-like stare from within HDTGM’s thumbnail image was so mesmeric that I somehow found myself clicking on the link. Oh boy, I did not regret it. The show is great. Paul, June, Jason, and their guests mine wonderful comedy from the worst of Hollywood. Yet the hosts rarely answer the question they pose in the title, in part, I suspect, because they want to be kind to all those involved.
