Matt Salazar says,
The movie discussion podcast you never knew you needed. I love movies… Listening to this show has made me realize how difficult it can be for us to understand why we like certain movies, let alone explain that to someone else. Laci and Matt take the time to really dig into their personally loved movies. They analyze what makes each so impactful, memorable, meaningful. The whole time they don’t know how the other is going to react to their movie choice… Whether or not you like the movie choices or even if you disagree with their opinions you are going get a lot of laughs.
Brittany Devereux says,
Funny, inspirational, just pure amazing. If you’re looking for a podcast that makes you randomly laugh out loud, or makes you want to stop what you’re doing to watch movies, then this is the perfect podcast for you! Laci and Matt do an amazing job of commentating on the movies they both watched, as well as making it seem so easy to share a Load Bearing Beam with your significant other!
