Great conversations. Great podcast!

Even though movie podcasts are a crowded segment, I find your insights and coversations quite raw, genuine and entertaining; and not to mention the great chemistry Chris and Paul have. I was quite bummed when the joblo movie podcast was cancelled and equally delighted when you guys decided to pick it up once more, so you’ve got a big fan in me. Keep it up, you guys.

Bloody Brilliant!

Paul and Chris are two great film critics! Love there Banter when it comes to anything. They have great debates unlike the people on Twitter. They respect each other and I’ll even watch the movies that they recommend because I faith in them that it will be good plus I trust them because they have good taste and both have similar taste in movies . Every week it brings a smile on my face when they post a new episode.
