We get nostalgic about 90s movies, bitch about what's wrong with trailers and discuss
why low-budget movies are the best.
|Myself and fellow arty-type, Chris Phillips, often chat at length about everything from movies
to games to our preferred tools-of-the-trade. With the rise in popularity of podcasts, I started
recording our conversations. I've previously uploaded this stuff to Youtube, but they've been
well enough received that I thought I'd bring them to the Collected Curios website and see
what veteran visitors thought about our ill-informed, nonsensical ramblings.
