A smart pod

These guys appreciate movies. Even difficult ones. I like that.

No in-depth analysis + more

Came for the EEAAO episode. Noticed multiple things:
1) no in-depth analysis, just unprepared thoughts and comments about things that are obvious to everyone
2) Poor audio mixing; way too quiet to then deafening
3) So much time spent figuring out what to say next. “Uhm… uhh.. so yeah! [Something obvious]…”

There are other better film analysis podcasts out there. Don’t waste your time.

Everything Everywhere All at Once epi

The movie includes a mix of Cantonese and blended Canto/English not Korean. You do get that these guys love their movies. Could be shorter episodes
