The FilmWonk Podcast features Glenn Bristol and Daniel Koch, a pair of Seattle-based film critics and podcasters. Whether blockbuster or independent film, we're ready to dive in and discuss any film that provokes us, initially in a spoiler-free fashion, and then in detail after an appropriate warning. From Twilight to Transformers to Miyazaki, we're ready to love or hate any film according to its merits as we see them, and let the discussion go wherever it will - even if tangents into culture, psychology, law, and politics are required!
Join film-nerd Glenn and angry iconoclast Daniel on an in-depth journey into cinema!
