Fun

Firstly, these are reviewers the age of my kids. Their naïveté is startling at times and irritating at others. Amy talks faster than any East Coast native and begins many statements with, “Yeah, I mean...” But she also treats so gently the interview with Cary Grant’s daughter that I was almost in tears myself. When they get excited, they throw malapropisms around like Yogi Berra but that’s just funny. Altogether grand fun.

Fun times with great flicks

I like a podcast where I can disagree with the hosts or think “no you’re missing the point!” often but still find their opinions interesting and compelling. They do a great job analyzing classic films under the lens of the present and they do it with a great sense of humor and a willingness to be challenged by one another and the listener. They have also forced me to go back and rewatch some great films. Thanks for making my night shifts fly by!

Absolutely favorite podcast

Funny, smart, easy and enthusiastic. Colorful, healthy and easy to digest criticisms.
Amy & Paul are like peas & carrots.
