And, since Tyler and David are two of the sharpest wits ever fused together, there are laughs aplenty.

The Only Movie Podcast Worth a Dang?

Great, But Unpolished

3.5 stars really. These are great brief reviews of movies and engaging discussions of specific topics.

You also have significantly varying viewpoints, but they get along and respect each other (love each other really) and it's great to hear that in a world of tribalism.

But the causal nature is sometimes unbearable in the "um's", "uh's", "you know". (One of them can string 15-20 seconds of them together.) It makes it sometimes hard to listen to and much longer than it needs to be.

They also find themselves in situations discussing movies they just watched unable to recall certain details, which seems odd as you would think if you knew you'd be speaking to something you'd keep a list of the cast & crew nearby or at least IMDB open.

Stuff like that leaves it as a 3.5.
