Watching Celebrities’ Favorite Movies?

March 22, 2018

If you’ve been here before, you know that I love podcasts. I also love movies. And guess what? I love podcasts about movies.

One of my newest favorites is called Movie Crush, brought to us by one of the guys from Stuff You Should Know (that I raved about on this podcast roundup).

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.

    I didn’t cry either. Also, this is one of Derek’s favorite movies. 😛
