We Paid To See This

Published by: Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano
126 Episodes | First Released: Jun 12 '16
A light-hearted comedic movie podcast focusing on the week's new cinema releases. Darren Hayes and Anthony Armentano spend their hard earned (or borrowed) cash to see the latest film releases and tell you what they thought. Because they don't get in for free, their opinions are honest. Honestly! May contain funny bits (they're both Groundlings trained improvisers) and strange non sequiturs (Anthony has a degree in film and Darren has an Olympic medal in rambling). Maybe some naughty words too.

The Only One...podcast

I don’t listen to podcasts or audiobooks because I get bored easy, my mind wanders, and I will stop listening within minutes. BUT I actually love listening to this podcast because it’s hilarious. Surprisingly held my attention, maybe because my sense of humor is a little twisted. I’m here for the random conversations in between movie reviews for the most part. I’m a little late in the game. I started listening about 2 months ago. I don’t even know how I stumbled upon it, but I’m glad I did.

Makes my day!

Darren and Anthony are so much fun to listen to! Their reviews are fantastic, and they've got me watching movies I never would have seen otherwise. But also, their banter just makes my workday so much better. Listening to them chat about whatever pops into their heads is what makes this podcast stand out. You guys are the best!

Come for the cuties, stay for the trip!!!

This is my favorite podcast. Anthony and Darren are laugh out loud hilarious, thought-provoking, sexy, calming, inspiring, and entertaining. As somebody else mentioned, they seem to be fans at heart -not film snobs- which is rare and refreshing. They also make a sincere effort to include those of us who don't have much money by mentioning films available online, which is much appreciated since I personally can't afford to see many movies in theatres. If I had the money, though, I would absolutely pay to see this live as a show or seminar.

Can't say enough good things

These guys are a joy to listen to. They are real, witty, smart, hilarious, etc. There is so much TMI, you just can't get enough. They make you feel like you are right there with them and these are your friends that you're catching up with. They are relatable and their movie reviews open up a world of possbilities you would never have thought of. I cannot recommend them enough.

It’s like being the silent friend in the room..in a good way

I look forward to new episodes every week. It’s like sitting in a room with two friends, talking about movies, but getting distracted by life and just laughing for an hour. Considering I hate [people in] movie theaters, it’s helpful to listen to discussion about what is playing now, so I can decide which movies I’ll rent and which I should wait for streaming.

Undeniable Chemistry and Much More

It's difficult to come up with a single statement that encapsulates this podcast. Darren and Anthony go to great lengths to see films every week that range from the hard-to-find independent cinema to the tent-poles on the mainstream release schedule, which is both interesting and appreciated. Their respective backgrounds afford them each a unique perspective that they share with the audience, often times reaching well beyond the theater-going experience. These guys love movies, and that's what they champion. As a team, they are insightful, playful, and engaging. Their chemistry is undeniable, which is what keeps me coming back for more.

It's a great movie review podcast, and yet it's also fun just to hear the two hosts chat and swap stories about their lives. They have great chemistry together!
