More, more, more!!
Make Him Watch It is a fun show to listen to, and Cinco and Ken’s energy jumps right through your speakers! I love listening to cinephiles talk about movies, but their insights as screenwriters take it to a whole new level. Cinco and Ken’s good-natured banter about a wide array of movies will definitely make your day! Keep it up Fellas. I’m running out of episodes. 🙂
Grown ups can separate the artist from the art
Choosing to be offended by the creator?

We have to fight this cancel crap.

Not for me
I dunno. It’s not super fun listening to them talk about how much they hate movies that I like for reasons that don’t matter or make sense to me. It’s exhausting. The Julie Klausner episodes, by contrast, were funny and made me want to revisit the films they watched. The negativity of the We Are Best episode confirmed this is just not for me.
