The Dish is an action movie review podcast with Zach and Mitch- a couple of friends who don’t know too much about movies, or food for that matter, but are determined to bring you a digestible and entertaining review of some great movies from decades past, that will then be compared to food.

A Massive Gaping Issue: Bad Boys (1995)

Best action movie pod ever!
So much fun!!!
These two are great
Came across these two and had some great laughs while listening! While the episodes are longer, the review of the movies are thorough enough that if you haven’t watched the movie recently you can recall it without worries of missing out.
There food comparisons are pretty unique and funny too. Like, who compares movies to food???
