One of my fav

If you like movies - listen to them.

djs94124 ,

I love the rapport between these guys!

I may never get around to seeing some of the films they review, but I really enjoy this podcast! It has prompted me to view a few films I otherwise might have skipped. In particular, I like the rapport these gentlemen have with each other, and I particularly like Jeff's passion for topics he feels strongly about, to the point of engaging in forceful argument with his comrades. Please keep up the great work!

Top tier

I’ve been listening to the show since 2008 (my first one was the Kevin Smith episode) and every week I look forward to hearing the newest episode of the show. This show is an inspiration and a hugely entertaining show with three incredible hosts offering rich and well articulated thoughts on each film they review. More importantly, it’s a show where you feel like you’re hanging out with your best friends and I truly hope that never changes. Love the show, continue the awesome work, and hope all of you are doing great.
