It’s season 6 of Movie Club and Corey and Jonathan have decided to watch some best picture winners that they had not seen. There are many over the years, but in the month of January 2022 they will check out four of them. Jonathan picks two and Corey picks two following the normal guidelines for the movies selected for the podcast.
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
