Movies You Should Love

Movies You Should Love

By Loren & Scott - Movie Fanatics
Movies You Should Love is like film school without the tuition. Loren and Scott take on classic and current films and break them down, explaining what makes them tick and why people love them today. In our weekly (well, usually weekly) film discussion, we pick apart, analyze, critique, mock, and dig into both classic films, mediocre movies, and modern masterpieces.
