Love #thetwofriends! For some it may run long, but I love the long-winded episodes the most. Always funny, always smart, always dedicatedly nerdy, just like hanging with my irl friends. I prefer listening to eps that I've 100% seen the movie cuz the friends will spend a lot of time obsessively dissecting details, and skip til I've watched the others. Dedication to bits is top notch.

I would pay for an abridged form of this podcast. The comedy bits are overly long and unfunny, they tell boring stories about working in the business, actual talk of the movie makes up a quarter of the episode, if that.

Really funny and thoughtful podcast, even when I haven't seen the movie. I love that they've decided to use their platform to promote awesome but marginalized directors alongside the big names they cover.

I'm giving 5 stars even though they haven't done a Batmen Forever ep.

By far a number one podcast, outlasting, outcasting, and out-no-bitsing all other competition. David Sims and Griffin Newman do hold the competitive advantage of being #theTwoFriends. This podcast CLEARS!

My absolute favorite movie podcast. Griffin & David strike a perfect balance of playful curiosity and such a sense of appreciation for even the real stinkers the watch. For people who are sometimes more interested in the context of how a movie got made than the movie itself, or if you just love a director they've covered, it's worth checking out. It also helps that there are absolutely zero bits (winky winky)

A great watch along podcast, the host are incredibley insightful, charming, and funny as hell. It really changes the way you think about film, with a focus on each directors process. And if you like context well let me tell you these two best friends are true connoisseurs of context and you will love every minute.

Aggressively charming & hysterical film critiques, with two of the nicest dudes in the biz. In the crowded world of "podcasts where two white dudes talk about movies" - it is a guiding light of positivity and inclusivity. The sort of stuff that reminds you why you love movies.

Simply the best film/comedy podcast out there. Griffin and David, #thetwofriends, are funny and astute film fans. Truly connoisseurs of context.
