If you’ve been waiting for a PrettyMuchIt alternative, it’s finally here. I can’t stand stuff like Collider or that Beyond the Trailer lady. The Podcast Strikes back is not only tolerable, but they are witty and provide a good insight. I also like them because they are not too professional, more casual, laid back. 😎

Great Movie Podcast!
