A surprising mix of films

I enjoy the back & forth that the daughter/father duo have, although the commentary can get a little bogged down at times.

As a cinephile, I think it’s great that the films they discuss cover a large swath of genres & decades. Not all films are meant to become classics, some are just mindless popcorn fests, & it’s nice that they don’t have an agenda for the films they feature.

I enjoy the one-off “B roll” episodes & I’m looking forward to their next season.
