Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time


Our next podcast topic comes to us thanks to Patreon subscriber Not Fenimore, who has left us with an intriguingly open-ended topic: our top 5 movies for parents. Whether this means the top 5 movies for parents who have been conscripted into watching movies with their kids,  the top 5 movies for parents to use as teachable moments about life or morality or such things, the top 5 movies for parents to learn how to handle their children, or something else entirely, has been left as an exercise for the list-maker. Tune in next Monday to find out how the three of us all defined that phrase, and learn what two people who are themselves parents, as well as one avowed child-hater, think makes for good parenting media.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover A Quiet Place, Part II, Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and The Paper Tigers.
