PaddyinCork ,

Excellent Show and a must for film fans

In addition to giving a terrific weekly insight into what’s good, bad or indifferent in the cinema this show is very entertaining. If new it may take a while to get a few ‘in jokes’ but stick with it dear listener.

The stand ins (the boys need the odd holiday) are generally very good though. Although I have an issue over Clarisse who whilst a great reviewer spoils it with her constant replacing the letter T with D e.g. congradulate etc .... I counted around 40-50 different words in 1 show. It was like nails on a blackboard .... excruciaDing!

As the lads would say - tinkety Tonk, keep up the good work & down with the Nazi’s

Cristin ,

Marks rants an occasional highlight.
