Be CinematNIC. Filmmaker Nicole Russin-McFarland discusses movies, movies and nothing but movies.

NOTE: Episodes begin after a short ad and may contain mid-roll ad sponsorships. The explicit content label is only because PG-13 and R rated films will get discussed on the podcast at times, and a guest may drop an occasional bad word.
