I know the "movies about movies" theme got a bit of traction in last month's poll, so maybe that's a possibility.
Listen to my podcast, Mousterpiece Cinema!

Im in.

Either of those seem fine to me. Maybe we do 50s with a suggested skew toward 1957? I imagine some people will be very difficult to dictate a Retro Filmspot to.

I'm in, although I may be slow in watching my dictation.  I've got a pretty huge stack of movies waiting to be watched at the moment.

I'm leaning towards "movies about movies" but I'm fine with 1957 too.

I've got reviews to write for the last three months but I'll get to those next week once school is done. So I'm in.
