Good stuff

I don't always agree with what they say about movies, history, politics or the world in general but that's opinions for ya, they're not always great. It's three guys talking about war movies, so what do I care if they say something screwy? They're smart, interesting and funny. You could pass the time in worse ways.

Great way to spend some pod time

Really enjoy this podcast. It's fun, serious, funny, and genuine (even if I wish they had a veteran's perspective, at times). The guys can be snarky at times, but it's rarely cynical and doesn't consume the podcast and doesn't detract from their honest reviews of each movie. They make me want to watch (or rewatch) these fine (and maybe not so fine) war films. Please keep it up. (But maybe Ben could read some history not written by Howard Zinn and think a little outside of his obtuse political box.)

History, Filmmaking, Great Dumb Jokes

You don't have to watch the movies to get a lot out of this show, the leads are insightful and charismatic, their takes are the hottest and loaded with interesting perspective, and sometimes even Adam talks. It's a great show! Five things.
