These guys know the difference between good movies and bad.

Great podcast for cinephiles like me.
The hosts definitely know what they're talking about.
It's nice to listen to the two hosts' different viewpoints and opinions.
Richard & Safi can be likened to Siskel & Ebert of the podcast world.

I also like how the podcast isn't too long.
In 20 to 30 minutes, it's the perfect length to listen to.

Definitely check out this podcast if your into movies.

Love the podcast

I stumbled upon your guy's podcast and I can't get enough everyday is a episode for me and you two know your stuff about what is a good movie and what isn't or giving a chance on a movie that is horrible from others but praised by the rest. I would like to here your Oscar picks for this year....Keep up the great work and I'll keep on listening, big fan, truely great work

This Podcast In A Nutshell

These epitomize everything wrong with the internet in terms of film criticism. They know nothing about film and simply express their fanboy predictable views in the most empty headed way possible every podcast. Do they even watch the films or do they read other people's reviews and just follow the leader?
