The Best

Classic Movie Musts is by far the best movie podcast out there. Takes the subject seriously but also makes it really interesting. The host clearly knows what he's talking about and has a great style. Anyone looking for the best classic movies podcast should listen to this show!

Max knows his stuff although it should be possible to discuss a movie without summarizing the plot. Kind of spoils it if you want to watch the movie. Kind of think, what gives him the right to crib note the plot? Doesn't the story belong to the writer, director and producer?

Great

Heard about this from an interview on another podcast. Such a treat to come across something this awesome. Perfect length so much background info. Very well done.
