Great chemistry.

I love the different ideas talked about and funny bits between the guys. I appreciate the table of contents so I can listen to the movies I have seen or want to see. Keep them coming!!

Embarrassingly Unremarkable

In their most recent episode they decide to cover the recent NY Times article which addresses the lack of black directors/films in the Criterion Collection. But, clearly, they only covered the article out of their apparent white guilt b/c they spend most of the time defending CC and its president and collectively struggle to think of black directors/films worthy of being added to the collection, admitting to not having seen such titles as Boyz in the Hood and Pariah. Their other episodes are just as laughable. Best of and end of year lists are repetitive and pedestrian. And film reviews are simplistic and uninteresting. Much of their discussions implies that there is nothing of value here.
