Entertaining, funny, intelligent

I’m just writing a review because they asked for one. Started listening when I got a random memory of the Brave Little Toaster. I enjoyed their in depth discussion of the film. Have continued listening since then.

Easily my favorite podcast!

I first discovered GenreVision back in 2020, and quickly became a big fan. Drew and Travis really know their stuff, and have an incredible love for cinema. Thanks to these two, I now have movies like The Curse of Frankenstein, Horror of Dracula, and the Coffin Joe trilogy under my movie-watching belt. Also: Being the massive swashbuckler fan that I am, I want to give major props to Drew for giving The Mask of Zorro a shout-out in their review for The Guyver. Easily one of my favorite moments in GenreVision history. Long story short - I love this podcast, and I highly recommend it to movie fans everywhere.

All the best from this Loyal Listener,

Ethan

Great show (and airing of complaint)

I love this podcast; in a world with oceans of podcasts making fun of bad movies, it's refreshing to find one where the hosts have a legitimate love of the art and craft, as well as being so knowledgable and passionate about it. I look forward to Genrevision episodes being released every week.

Now, as a sociologist, however, I feel the need to address a pet peeve I have that Drew and Travis regularly trigger, and offer a friendly correction. Your usage of the term "social contract" is incorrect. The way you use it, a better term would probably be "social norms" or "social customs." The social contract, however, specifically refers to political and social theory in which members of a society explicitly or tacitly surrender some of their rights to the state in exchange for security. There is considerable discussion within social and political theory as to the relationship between natural and legal rights, as it pertains to this topic, and some theorists on the more “radical” end of the political spectrum argue that the social contract is actually a form of coercion exercised by the state. As Benjamin Franklin said: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Anyway, sorry to ramble. Love the show, keep up the good work!
