We've Got Mail #40 | Do You Need Context to Watch Classic Movies?

This week, Bibbs and Witney talk about the DVD boxed sets that got away from them, movies that have been ruined by bad editing, our worst movie theater experiences, whether classic movies need context to play today, our favorite movie scenes, and the difference (if there is one) between shocks and scares in horror movies!
