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

For our episode 101, we have Dean picking the top 250 film to breakdown, and he has selected Clint Eastwood's 'Unforgiven'. We also talk about our Top 5 Clint Eastwood Directed Films, find out who won our Academy Awards Challenge, as well as our usual assortment of segments!
