Does It Hold Up?

We discuss older movies from all eras and determine if they still hold up or not. We look at the directing, cinematography, acting, writing, and everything else before making our final decision. Some movies we are watching for the very first time and others we have seen more time than we can count. Join us on our journey to see what does and what doesn’t hold up.
