Berkreviews.com Movie Club episode 060 – Chicago
During the month of March, Berkreviews.com Movie Club will be focusing on past Academy Awards Best Picture winners that we’ve never seen. Chicago (2002) ended up being first on the list after Big Tuna challenged Jonathan (@berkreviews) to watch it as part of the Take 5 movie challenge. Jonathan had never seen the film, but Corey (@coreyrstarr) had watched it once before. This is one of the times where they don’t see eye to eye, but that makes for some quality conversation. The film was directed by Rob Marshall and stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renée Zellweger, Dominic West, John C. Reilly, Queen Latifah, and Richard Gere.
The duo also discussed what they watched since the last time they recorded, Kevin Smith’s heart attack, and Jonathan’s upcoming trip to SXSW.
Next week Berkreviews.com Movie Club episode 061 – Crash (2004)
Neither Jon nor Corey saw the 2006 Best Picture winner Crash. The film is directed by Paul Haggis and stars Don Cheadle and Sandra Bullock among many others. It is a film that has had many mixed reviews, especially about its Oscar win.
What is Movie Club?
Corey and Jonathan both realized they had a ton of movies they’d never seen. In an effort to work through their gap list, they started this podcast to ensure they at least check one new film off the list almost every week. Thus, for a film to qualify for Movie Club one or both have to have never seen it or at least not seen it for a long time.
