Movie Lovers

Movie Lovers

Jonah Weingarten and Mallory Jacobson have been together since 2015. One of the many indicators that these two had found their match was their ability to endlessly quote movies like Wayne’s World and Tommy Boy back and forth. Join this metal musician and millennial marketer as they take turns picking a movie to dissect each episode — either finally forcing each other to watch those movies they’ve been putting off for 5+ years, or re-watching flicks that are close to their hearts. If you’re down for the dichotomy of discussion topics like “how did this movie impact the film industry” and “who would you bone” — you’ve come to the right place.
