Movie Club – Mint in Box – Mystery Train (1989)

Once a year, Corey (@coreyrstarr) and Jonathan (@berkreviews) like to visit their collections searching for those movies that have yet to be opened. That’s right everyone, it’s Mint in Box month. Movies that they own but have never seen. It would be possible to just do this podcast with this premise, but they just keep making more movies and they can’t stop buying them!

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. Be sure to follow them on Social Media @berkreviews and @coreyrstarr
