Great show.

They really should watch The Heiress

Jmhave ,

Bibs and Whitney are awesome!

If you’re interested in hearing a podcast with two hosts with a wonderful knowledge and a great passion for movies, this is the one for you! Bibbs and Whitney express great enthusiasm. All of their podcasts are very informative, thought-provoking, and very interesting. Quite entertaining they have a blend of professionalism and informality. They do not remove any subtle errors but instead use them as a way to educate. Also, it is quite delightful how one of the hosts cat named Luca often appears in these podcasts! Take a listen, these are great podcasts!

Movies that start with the letter A

Absolutely loved this episode, as I do every episode.

I rly need to watch All The Presidents Men

One thing I disagreed with is Arrival being Denis’ best Film.

Blade Runner 2049 (Which I find to be MUCH better than the original film) is definitely the best one.

Agree with Aliens. It’s so Good.
