Iswoon ,

great reviews…theme music, not so much.

Listening to thoughtful, considered reviews from an adult perspective is much appreciated. These two make a good pair, yet don’t always agree, like regular folks. The theme music is g-awful, annoying, grating. Wrong notes and all…
it’s gotta go. So do I.

Realistic reviews of movies

Very brief, conversational discussion of movies new and old. Helpful ideas without a lot of analysis.

rdladd ,

Nice short movie update

Must listen to every week to find out what's coming to the theaters and what I should catch up on at home.
