New parents Jim Bacarro & Saab Magalona know how tough it is to find time for each other now that they're working extra hard to pay the bills and to keep their baby boys Pancho & Vito happy. They created this podcast to make sure they still make time for each other (in between actual dates, of course). They want to share stuff they learn with other new parents who don't know what the heck they're doing either. Most of the time they go way off track to discuss music, movies, and other stuff t ...
 
Our goal is to simplify the film review business. No plot recaps, no spoilers, only insight. Because, when you think about it - its all just a numbers game. How much it cost to make. How much it grosses. How many stars it gets. But the most important one of all: How much of your money is it worth? #IdBuy?ThatFo?rADoll?ar if it is, and we'll even throw in our two cents for free.

Directors Michael Mann and Ridley Scott have each developed a strong brand for themselves, so when you see their name on the marquee, you feel you know what to expect.

It is a huge episode this week as we have five movie reviews for you, and we are dipping into all kinds of genres.

It’s spooky season and in this week’s episode we’re discussing David Lynch’s nightmarish cult classic Eraserhead (1977).

Chris' daughter Lily is with us tonight to talk about the current state of anime!
