Customer Reviews

CasablancaDon ,

Personable and engaging!

Chad is consistently a spirited and thoughtful host. He is not out for snark or hot takes on the films he covers. He’s in it for the love and enjoyment and I really respect that. Keep up the fine work, good sir!

Rshah6192 ,

They know how to make an onion out of a movie!

Let me explain the title: you may think that a particular movie that you liked was pretty straightforward, but this podcast peels it apart on so many levels (music, acting, direction, etc.), that it really makes you realize the artistic feat involved behind the 2 hours of entertainment you received.

absolutely i do ,

This is so amazing

It is a positive spin to glorious movies!! Chad also co-hosts the American workplace, which is one of my two favorite office podcast. No negative rabbit holes that ruin movies for me, and he interviews different host that keeps things interesting.
