The Third Act Podcast is what happens when three friends get together and launch into movie-related discussion and reviews.
New releases, old films, Auteurography (where the entire filmography of a specific director is covered) as well as nostalgically-themed episodes such as "Don't Judge a Movie By It's Cover" and "But Does It Hold Up?" are all part of the cinema-obsessed mix here.
So, do yourself a favor and grab an ice cold can of Mt. Dew Baja Blast and enjoy Christian, Jericho, and Armando's long-winded foray into all things involving the mooooovies,
