April 2021 is going to be animated with the Movie Club theme of Drawing Conclusions. Jonathan (@berkreviews) and Corey (@coreyrstarr) have selected some of the animated movies from their collections or ones that are well regarded but somehow they never got to for this month. In fact, one animated studio’s filmography will be completed as they traverse the animated landscapes the films have to offer.
As far as the podcast goes, each episode features an in-depth review of the movie for the week. They begin with a spoiler-free review before diving in completely after the needed spoiler warning. However, before getting into the review of the week, Jonathan and Corey discuss what other movies they’ve seen since the last episode as well as anything else they feel like discussing. To help them decide which of the many films to watch each month they started creating themes for them all.
Week 2 – Fantastic Planet (1973)
Plot Synopsis: On a faraway planet where blue giants rule, oppressed humanoids rebel against their machine-like leaders.
