  • Amanda

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE consider replacing Amanda. I don’t care if her and Sean are friends. I don’t care if Sean and Amanda‘s husband are friends. She is so unlikeable, goes on and on about nonsense, interrupts constantly, and doesn’t seem to like movies that much. She absolutely ruins what would otherwise be such a great show. more

  • Does Amanda even like movies?

    Just wondering…? I get that this is a place for critique but like- not once have I heard her talk about a movie without complaining about more than half of it.

  • Soooooo Pretentious

    If you want to be talked down to for an hour or so about how you really don't understand what the movie you have just seen is about because you didn't watch an obscure film from 1973, then this is the place to be.

  • Less talk, more rock please

    Lately, Amanda’s rants are putting the show on the brink of unlistenable. I have turned off multiple eps recently that I was looking forward to over that. The post-Oscar eps were the nadir. She sounded unhinged and added nothing to the conversation. And we get it. You went to Venice. more
