Best of all time

Nothing better in terms of movie reviews out there. Kermode already has his Oscar statue but they should make it real life size

Alex_Phillips ,

Easily the best pod of all time

Sad that this is over. Even sadder that it has been replaced with that awful Take.

Well, we had a great 21 years. Goodbye to Jason.
