    Any movie that starts with the letter "J" qualifies, and since there are relatively few movies that actually do begin with the letter "J," it's going to be an eclectic episode.

    We've Got Mail #170 | Should Filmmakers Badmouth Other People's Films?

    Bibbs and Witney are on a bit of a break after completing THANK GODZILLA, IT'S FRIDAY but that doesn't mean they've stopped making podcasts!

    In an all-new WE'VE GOT MAIL, they're answering questions about where giant monsters come from, their favorite horror musicals, what it means when a movie is a "cash grab," and the reasons why so many filmmakers think it's wrong to speak openly about what they don't like about other films!

Excellent resource for film criticism and recommendations

Easily two of the most insightful film critics out there even though Witney is deeply wrong about Nimona.

Alumson ,

good discussion, but disappointing moments

I dropped in on a Minus One episode. I was surprised that some criticisms Bib had were somewhat changed because of moments he missed in the film. Many of these were not minor moments that could be missed if you blinked or looked away. These were important, like the final moment. He didn’t even remember it. This is disappointing because there are several points where this is the case. This gives the impression that he didn’t care to pay much attention, potentially because of biases he already had from his first viewing. “I’ve already seen it” vibes. If you don’t care to pay attention to the film you’re discussing, why should the listener care to hear your thoughts on it?
