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!

#42 - It’s A Wonderful Life / Our Top 5 Films About Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!
We're in the festive mood today as we breakdown the 1946 Christmas Classic 'It's A Wonderful Life'. Listen on as Daniel makes up a new word, Dean can't pronounce 'apothecary', and we both wonder what it would've been like to live in the year '40'.
As well as the breakdown, we give our 'Top 5 films about Christmas' and find out the results of Pod v Pod XI in our 'Non Disney Animated Films' draft. We also look at the match up for the Grand Final of our best 1940's film tournament, and find out what movie we'll be watching next!
So come on in and join our journey!
