Changed of heart - these guys are ok

Have listened to this for a while. The guys grew on me. The movie discussion is solid and the banter reminds of growing up in the NW.

Legitimately Nerdy

Matt and Mark are not some hipster techies pretending to be geeks, they are the REAL DEAL. Every episode is full of clever and occasionally cynical observations of two guys who may have experienced parts of life from the sidelines. Beware, these movie reviews often drift off onto tangents, but those are often my favorite parts of the show. Also, Matt and Mark don’t always agree on things, in which case you are in for a hilarious showdown. I wish I could give this show 6 stars because I find myself going into the back catalog to listen to old episodes on movies I haven’t even watched, its that entertaining.

Great film review series

If you feel like you watch a lot of film but haven't taken a bunch of film school courses then this might be a good fit for your podcast rotation. Their film analysis is insightful and accessible without overly relying on film history/industry lingo. Matt and Mark have great chemistry and they're great at commenting from multiple viewpoints on the broader social themes and implications of films without getting preachy or overbearing. For two white guys from the northwest they are pretty relatable and their show intro, called Show News, is usually an entertaining personal story that brings a lot of character to the hosts. I always look forward to new episodes and if you listen to podcasts as part of your workday and unwind afterwards with films then I'd highly recommend this series.

Biased but objective

That's my review on them (not theirs on movies). I know these guys personally and you should give this a thumbs up simply because these guys would be awesome company at a bar chatting about anything.

Smart banter

These guys have an easy-going natural banter about movies, you can tell they love movies and they love talking about them even more. Even when they review movies I didn't really like, I find myself wanting to watch the film again after listening to them discuss it.
