Good idea, but falls flat

As a movie buff and a Daily News reader I was anxious to give this podcast a try, and I listened to the first 18 or so episodes. It works best when they put the movie in the context of its times, such as Rambo in the Reagan 80s or Spielberg's Duel in the 70s TV-movie era. The main guy seems about my age (mid to late 40s) and seems to know his stuff. Unfortunatley he has a younger, millenial sidekick who knows very little about film or anything else before 1995. Making matters worse, the sound mix is always just a little off, so one finds onself constantly adjusting the volume to make one guy louder and one guy softer. I think the final straw was the questionable decision to feature I Spit on Your Grave, perhaps the most vile and worthless waste of film in history. I consider myself pretty open minded and I even saw it once on VHS, but it took 20 years to forget it. There are plenty of films in the revenge-porn genre such as Thriller (aka They Call Her One-Eye) that they could have reviewed, but I think they just went straight for the jugular, so to speak.

Uninteresting and uninformative

You will learn nothing except two men's opinion of movies. They do not do any research about the subjects they discuss, and they don't know much about movies in general.

Boring

Very boring and incredibly low energy. Lots of pauses and silence.
