New perspectives on favorite films

My favorite part of this show is hearing the thoughts and feelings of woman in the business on movies I’ve loved for years (like Scream and Jennifer’s Body). They’re movies I’ve seen too many times to count but each episode of this show gives me something new to think about for each of them. I’m hooked!

Great show!

Wonderful show about the craft of making movies and how genre movies drive the medium forward. Amazing guests with perspectives that have changed the way I look at movies. Anchored by the talented and funny April Wolfe, this show is a must listen for film fans.
