September 2021 has lead Jonathan (@berkreviews) and Corey (@coreyrstarr) to look outside the majority of the Hollywood system. This month, all of the movies are featuring more diverse casts, stories, or directors. Following the normal guidelines for the selection of the movies, the two looked for films they hadn’t seen but for some reason piqued their interest.
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.
