Excellence

Endearing, engaging, enRAGING!!! A perfect movie podcast, equal parts nerdiness and everymanliness with an ingenious device (random selection from the 250) which gives the episodes as a whole a satisfying continuity.

Fantastic

Never tire of this show. Such a fun idea and with a brilliant pair of hosts and guests. Darren Mooney is utterly fantastic and opens your mind and eyes to different ways of viewing films that we all know and love that have broken the IMDb 250

250 reasons to listen...

...okay not really but I can give you a few! Firstly Darren (who's already a phenomenal culture blogger) and Andrew are relaxed, funny, engaging hosts who tap into not just facts but theories about the movies they watch in an accessible way. The concept of the show, exploring the IMDB 250, is simple but clever too and should allow for varied, fascinating discussion on well known movies and lesser known gems. Set to become a staple of my podcast listening.
