Hey everyone! This is Robin, the producer. I’m Blaine’s ex-wife and if you enjoy listening to him on Grindhouse Messiah, wait until you hear my new husband, Kris. These two team up to talk new and classic films that they share a love for. Each week they will cover a film, as well as a related top 5 list. These two babble, argue and bond as I try my best to keep them on topic. This episode we get our introductions out of the way and discuss our top 10 films of all time.
