Fun, insightful, and Funny

Excellent podcast! Fun personalities, great premise and structure, insightful arguement (without everyone yelling over each other), and just the right amount of being combative without being mean. Whether I agree with the defense or not, I keep finding myself wanting to rewatch these movies during the discussion haha! Highly recommended!

Finally, a reason for bad movies to exist!

Good concept for a podcast with some excellent bad movie choices. The cast has a great range of personalities with funny opinions. I only wish Laura would act more lady-like and not cuss so much.
