    Yo, Michael. Don’t you review the movies? There’s no review man.

    Hey Lance. When Tassoula and I podcast a movie, we don’t also do a written review. 1) so we’re surprised at the other’s response; and 2) the podcast is spoiler-filled and we don’t want to worry about being careful in a written review while not being careful in the podcast review. Or at least that’s the story I’m going with. If you haven’t gone to Benjamin Button yet, lower your expectations. Hope you’re well.

    Hi Michael. Just checking out your blog, as a new listener of Cinebanter. I’ve also emailed Tassoula about this – but great work with the podcast – I’m really enjoying listening to some back-episodes after hearing Tassoula’s spot on Filmspotting recently. I’ve also sent in a Last Five.

    Cheers, Luke.

    Cate Blanchett with a southern accent FTW; but Benjamin Button kept dragging on, always pausing dramatically on Brad Pitt’s face, a lot like Meet Joe Black, FTL
