Episode 42 – Discussing Our Most Hated Movies

On this week’s episode, we invite Matthew Kerchner from the Cinema and Landon Palmer from the City Lights series to discuss our most hated movies.  It was an interesting topic for me, because while everyone had lists ready, it turned into a really organic conversation. It wasn’t just about the movies we hate, but also why we hate them.

We start off with What Have You Seen Lately, and we’re a bit light this week, but it doesn’t matter because we’ve got a lot to talk about.

In our main topic, we spend a lot of time mentioning specific movies, but also a lot of time categorizing these movies, and really discussing what it is about these movies that rubs us the wrong way. Matthew also throws some specific actors at us, and Landon throws in a director for good measure.

Did we pick out your favorite or least favorite movie? Listen to find out, and let us know what you thought at our Facebook page.

    Totally agree about Tom Hanks. Put him on an island and get him out of American movies.
