I enjoy listening to it

I enjoy listening to the reviews and interviews.
The reviews are well written even if I don’t always agree with them but I can tell the writers love movies just as much as me.
I’ve got plenty of examples of movies I disagree with them on (Jojo rabbit, Blade Runner 2049, etc.) but I can understand what they get out of movies and they always explain themselves.
I don’t want to comment on other people’s reviews that much but so many reviews are just angry that the people on the podcast for having different opinions. They aren’t talking down to anyone, they’re just talking to each other about their own thoughts. Some people need to calm down.
I love their episode on Beale Street.
