I love this podcast

I haven’t seen most of the movies and don’t watch them as they go, but it doesn’t matter. Great evergreen audio from interesting and entertaining people with excellent chemistry. Strong format. On a scale of 0 to 5 Colombian Rabies, where 5 is best, I give it 5.

I don’t even like war movies

But I love hearing these guys discuss them. Thanks for thoughtful conversation, fellas.

Actually going to watch the Hurt Locker now...

As always: entertaining, insightful, and not stuffy. I think I was a little too young to appreciate this film when it came out—and a little too over the wars that dominated my childhood, so I completely forgot about the Hurt Locker. As usual, Friendly Fire has made me want to watch a film, even (or especially?) after all the spoilers and summaries. Also, a note to other reviewers: this is not a war history podcast. This is a war MOVIE podcast about war movies, not about wars. I would pay real money to listen to Roderick do a war history podcast though...Ben and Adam can be there too.
