Max & Sam take on movie podcasting

Max and I have been friends and fellow movie-buffs for a while. We realized after watching dozens films together that we have very different approaches to cinema, and this often leads to interesting discussions à la Siskel and Ebert. One day I asked, “Why aren’t we recording this?” And the rest is history. Here’s our first experimental episode, with more to follow (each episode henceforth focusing on one movie).
