Hawkmannix ,

Great podcast!

David doesn’t like anything even slightly positive, Jeff complains that they don’t make movies the way he envisioned it, and Devindra is into 15 year old girl type tv shows. That being said, best movie podcast out there. Keep it up! Thanks!

Raiden104 ,

My favorite after 10 years of listening

I’ve been listening to this podcast for over 10 years, and it is hands down the best! Jeff, Dave, and Devindra put on a fantastic, high quality, and well-produced show every week. I cannot name the number of amazing new movies I’ve discovered through them.

BenzSolo ,

Decent

Their review of Da Five Bloods contained a few good takes, an overwhelming amount of pandering to Spike, and an interesting guest perspective. All in all, I’m only half disappointed. Oh yeah, and less virtue-signaling, which made the whole experience a bit more tolerable.
