If you’ve been here before, you know that I love podcasts. I also love movies. And guess what? I love podcasts about movies.
Here is the first episode below, if you’re interested in giving it a listen!
I’m going to do my best to update this as often as possible because … I’m going to do my best to watch them ALLLLL.
The basic premise of the podcast is that each guest and the host (Chuck Bryant) talk about the guest’s favorite movie. Basic plot line, trivia, memories of the movie, etc.
For some reason, unbeknownst to me, some people think of me as a movie junkie (which *spoiler alert*, isn’t necessarily the case). I want to challenge myself to watch more movies (especially “older” ones), and challenge myself to be a bit more critical about them.
