This iTunes podcast can be hard to pay attention to at times, but, it is highly entertaining. Hosts include Amy Nicholson from MTV and Devin Faraci of Birth. Movies. Death. The objective of the podcast is to critique a chosen film and determine whether it deserves to be included into what Faraci describes as the “the canon of great films to live on for all time.”
The format is inflexible and the hosts express their authentic opinions about the movie being discusses. However, the disagreements can usually get on a listener’s nerves as the two try to constantly rove that the other is wrong.
Nevertheless, it’s an entertaining listen.
