By Steven Turek
Join Ben, Mikaela, and Steven as they review movies. The person who picks the movie and the genre that they have to choose from is decided by the roll of a die. The genres are action, drama, horror, musicals, animation, comedy, and fantasy/science fiction.

In addition to reviews, we also interview people involved with the making of movies. We hope that you enjoy the variety that we are bringing to you, the listener.
