Just so good

Lovely to listen to them talk

I love how simple and straightforward if is. Their observations and knowledge are great and I love that these films are all getting attention

It’s a bit of a hidden gem this podcast

Is the Best Picture the Best Picture?

Did Oscar get it righ? Listen to Eric and Sean to find out. You may not always agree but you will be entertained.

Nice concept!

I am really enjoying this podcast. They randomly pick a year and watch all the nominees for Best Picture. Good and insightful.
