November ushered in a new theme here on Movie Club; Political Movies. Jonathan (@berkreviews) chose Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939) for the first film that he and Corey (@coreyrstarr) would watch. The movie is directed by Frank Capra and stars James Stewart, Jean Arthur, and Claude Rains. It is also in the AFI top 100 films list, which was a big reason Jonathan wanted to get this one off his personal gap list and that AFI goal he has.
Next episode: Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
Corey selected this Stanley Kubrick comedy for the next film during the Political Movie theme. Jonathan watched it one (review here) and is looking forward to seeing it again. The film stars Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, and Sterling Hayden among many other talented, young actors.
Berk Reviews Movie Club – General Info
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.
