THE FILM GRIND - Episode #6 "The Dictator"

The week on THE FILM GRIND, Brian Roan (DearFilm) and I discuss our passionate opinions of The Dictator as well as a number of other films we watched this week and recommend for you to see.  In this episode we discuss modern comedies and what makes a film funny.  I hope you've been enjoying the show so far and if you haven't started listening and love to hear people bash relentlessly on a film then this might be the episode for you!

Hit the jump to listen to the podcast and read the shownotes.

THE FILM GRIND is a movie podcast where we try to break a film down to move beyond the story at hand and see how it relates to the larger narrative elements of a film as a whole.  So basically, we just want to have a great conversation about movies we love and ones not quite so fortunate.
