You know how we normally talk about one movie per episode? Well this time we talked about 38.
We discuss our favorite movies of the decade with our friend Melissa. We went so long that we cut the episode in two. In this part, we run down movies that didn’t quite make the cut. We’ll be back next with our top 10 lists.
