Film Reviews

Long time friends Daniel & Dean get together to breakdown every movie on the IMDB Top 250 list, giving their own light hearted thoughts, rankings and any general banter along the way. Along with any listener reviews and questions, the guys also battle it out with other podcasts in movie quizzes and movie drafts (That you the listener can vote on) in what we call ‘Pod v Pod’, as well as briefly discuss any other films they’ve watched recently. So come along and join the journey!

Episodes

We've got our hands full this week for 'Pod v Pod VIII' where John Mark & Jay from The Film Inquiry Podcast Network come in and take us on in our usual quizzes, including a movie draft on 'Directorial Debuts'. Some awesome movies selected by both!
 
We then go through some responses to our Question of the week, and give our 'Top 5 Remakes'. We then find our who made it through the Elite 8 in our 'Best Director Tournament', including a 51% victory by one director!
 
We then take some time to discuss what else we've been watching this week, including Bad Times At The El Royale, First Man & A Star Is Born.
 
So come on in and join our journey!
