Seeing as how we've been friends for more than 10 years, and lived together for more than seven... we’ve probably watched an estimated 800 movies together. As storytellers, movies have given us worlds to dissect, characters to study and adore, loathe and mourn for, and a panorama of shared experiences.

After we moved apart, movies became a way for us to stay together – a few hours on the phone, watching a movie together, sharing some laughs, going silent as we cried.

Sam majored in Moving Image Arts and Creative Writing; Lauren studied Creative Writing and Psychology… whether we’re together or apart, we’re consuming stories, and learning about the way they affect us. (We read a lot, too, in case you’re curious.)

So when we began to toy with idea to put some of our conversations, and thoughts, into a podcast, we had one big question – why not? Why not increase the conversation around film? More than anything else, being in a community of people who think critically about the entertainment they love and hate is something we enjoy.

Film is for everyone. There is no movie that is too sophisticated or obscure to be enjoyed by every person on the planet (Or, if not enjoyed, then studied, because we’re not convinced that every movie can be enjoyed.) While Sam represents a background in more traditional film studies, Lauren often finds herself standing in for the “target audience” point of view.

We hope you, wherever you fall into that spectrum – a delighted audience member, a film theorist, or somewhere in between – will join us in our conversations.
