Are you not entertained?

These guys have great chemistry! I often find myself listening to episodes where I haven’t seen any of the movies because it’s just that entertaining. They are super knowledgeable and offer three unique perspectives on just about every aspect of the movie industry. Easily one of my favorite podcasts!

Movie Buff Must Listen

Great podcast; fun, light, entertaining and easy to listen too. If you love to rehash movie plots, production, actor’s performance and the like then you’ll appreciate listening to this crew’s take on a broad spectrum of movies. Plugin, sit back, and enjoy the show. I know I did.
