Great podcast!

This is my favorite podcast! I learn a lot of cool stuff about the movies, but I honestly love it for the insightful and often hilariously real observations from the group. They don’t hold back. Great personalities and conversation that’s just so fun to listen to!

Pretty Terrific

I found this show searching for MRS. MINIVER, and was delighted how much they talked it up. I love that film, and that episode made me love it even more.

Love this podcast!!

As a movie buff/nerd, I absolitely love hearing about the history of the Oscars as well as the modern viewings of all the Oscar winners. It's fun to hear about what holds up and what doesn't! Plus I enjoy the banter of the hosts. :)
