Happy Birthday, Mystery Movie Night!

The Mystery Movie Night podcast turned one year old last month! So did Hellbent for Letterbox, but we'll talk about that later. Here are the last few episodes, in case you missed them:

Episode 11: Thing from Another World (1951), Shoot to Kill (1988), and X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008)

Dave, David, Erik, and I covered the Howard Hawks science fiction classic The Thing from Another World (1951), the Sidney Poitier/Tom Berenger thriller Shoot to Kill (1988). and the much maligned second X-Files movie The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008). And since it was the first episode of 2017, we also talked about our most anticipated movies for the year.

Episode 12: Ghostbusters (1984), King Kong (2005), and The Lego Movie (2014)
