Entertaining time saver!

What a great way to choose my next movie. As one who is very particular about which movies I am willing to give up my time for, I find this to be the perfect service for me. I appreciate the contrasting views Les and Ann often present, knowing that my own views could fall somewhere in between. Looking forward to future reviews!
