Seen any good films lately

Jason is one of the best film critics out there. What makes him standout is the fact that he still likes films and has not become cynical of modern films. He still appreciates films for what they are, great entertainment. He understands that whilst some do make social commentary and have something to say, they can still be about nothing of any great significance but be entertaining. A great film critic, presenter and he knows how to pick a good tune too.

Highly recommended. 👏🏾.

A little gem of a podcast

Found this little gem of a podcast while searching for a film review. It’s full of great recommendations from an eclectic group of guests all just wanting to share their joy of watching, listening to and reading things. Now I have to make time to do the same. Well done Jason Solomons on such a simple formula.
