Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider

Jeff Bayer and Eric D. Snider are movie critics, but not the stuffy,
elitist kind. They’re not the idiotic fanboy kind either. So what kind
of movie critics are they? The kind with an Internet radio show,
that’s what.

Movie B.S. features reviews of new films both good and bad,
smackdowns of the bad movies of yesteryear, and a plethora of other
movie-related features. All of it is tied together by cavalier banter
between Bayer and Snider, who noticed that there was a dearth of
cavalier banter on the Internet and sought to rectify that.
