Great Network For Film Dorks

Long time listener, Bibbs and Witney are great companions for hours and hours of listening. Canceled Too Soon is a special treat of a show, give it a listen!

What a lovely podcast feed

I adore Witney and Bibbs. They are excellent film critics who are also incredibly charming and fun to listen to. I could even listen to them talk about soap (which they have).

Extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to cinema

These guys know their stuff. They do thorough analyses of each film and Critically Acclaimed is a great companion piece to Linoleum Knife and Breakfast All Day (my other two favorite movie podcasts). They also dedicate hours and hours of their time on their Patreon site and respond to their listeners in detail if you send them a letter. Excellent podcast!
