A great podcast

Steve tells the story behind some of the greatest movies and fills in a lot of background on the movie ,actors and directors.

PTF off ,

Too much whining, not enough talk about movies.

My entry to this podcast was the round table episode about historical figures who deserve to have movies made about them, and the opening speaker rambled on to complain about current controversies in the US, pronouns, and political correctness. Maybe it’s not a good episode to start with, but if they’re going to spend every third sentence complaining, as the first 10 minutes of this episode did, then the podcast is not for me and I rate it 1 star.

Laughable

Everyone on this podcast seems to think they can do everything better. There's a reason they're reviewing massively successful works. Lost me with The Da Vinci code.
