It’s the episode you’ve been waiting for all year: Movie Podcast Weekly’s TOP 10 MOVIES OF 2017! In Episode 272, your favorite hosts bring you eight various categories or lists to help us assess the cinema of 2017. In addition to our Top 10 Best Movies of 2017, we bring you our Honorable Mentions, our Single Best Guilty Pleasure Movie of 2017, our three Biggest Disappointments of 2017, three Most Overrated Movies of 2017, four “Dishonorable Mentions” of 2017, and the Worst Damn Movie of 2017! Oh, and we also bring you a little sneak peak of our Top 5 Most Anticipated Movies of 2018. And then there’s Andy’s list… Don’t hold him against us. But truth be told, the *BIGGEST* reason to listen to this episode is to hear our MPW Community’s Collective Lists, which have been meticulously compiled and tabulated from 51 listener feedback submissions!
To help Jason, Andy, Karl, and Ryan with this formidable, end-of-the-year movie ranking, we welcome back everybody’s favorite special guest William Rowan Jr., the host of a brand new Movie Podcast Network show, the Movie Moments Podcast, and he’s a co-host on The Sci-Fi Podcast. William helps us with Feature Reviews of The Shape of Water (2017) and All the Money in the World (2017). And Ryan brings us a Feature Review of the new Netflix Will Smith movie, Bright (2017). Join us!
If you’re new to our show… Movie Podcast Weekly typically features four hosts — Jason, Andy, Karl and Geek Cast Ry — along with frequent guests. We give you our verdicts on at least one new movie release from the current year that’s currently playing in theaters, as well as several mini reviews of whatever we’ve been watching lately. New episodes release every single week!
