Informative & Entertaining
Kailey & Dan do a great job of giving us a lot of cinematic information and entertainment in this well researched film podcast. Up to date with the latest box office figures and news, they do a great job of reviewing films from the entire movie going spectrum. Special interest is paid to NZ cinema and they often have great guests.
Best film podcast from New Zealand
Love this podcast. Interesting, rarely on the fence about anything, and if they manage to mention Game of Thrones, I giggle.
Newtown rocks (again)
Perfect mix of smart, dumb, high and low, organised and shambolic.
