weird editing of this pod, thought I'd misheard but the same section of chat /intro (about where they're broadcasting from) is there twice, one longer one shorter. screwed with my head til I did scroll back and realise I wasn't wrong, I had heard that chat...was this a little clever nod to Groundhog day???!

I stopped tuning into the podcast a year ago because I grew tired of listeners' obvious attempts to impress with their writing chops and film knowledge. It's a great movie review show when it's, you know, reviewing movies. As it stands, it's part review show, part tedious student writing competition. Wish they'd focus less on this faff and let Mark do more of what he's paid to do.

I've watched thousands of films one of these dicks is only and always interested in a great score, films can be pish but as long as they have a great score, waste of time, he reviews the joker, great score, doesn't even mention Batman

Used to be a big fan. Now not a week passes in which either interviewees or presenters, and often both, feel the need to genuflect before their woke religion. It's not what I listen for, even when I agree with their premise, and it's starting to alienate me. Considering unsubscribing.
