Episode 217

You’ve heard about it. Here it is. The first MPW Summit. At the end of this show, Movie Podcast Weekly, Episode 217, Jason and special guest MPW listener, Dino Ticinelli, have a sit-down to figure out how to determine a film’s year of release, particularly when trying to compile one’s Top 10 Best Movies of the Year list! (Note: This discussion, which occurs near the end of this episode, is only for those who are truly interested in that debate.) Also in this show, we bring you Feature Reviews of The Handmaiden and Man Down and Captain Fantastic and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. This episode also features a very brief visit from a guy named “Kandi.” So, we bring you a typical, two-hour episode with lots of reviews, and then we bring you 75 more minutes of additional movie discussion! Join us!

And don’t forget to e-mail your picks for The Top 10 Best Movies of 2016 to MoviePodcastWeekly@gmail.com, and you could possibly win a $50 Amazon gift card or a $25 Amazon gift card or Ryan’s BMOTY (Best Movie of the Year)! Continue reading

Top 10 of 2016 blog

Preface:
For those who love movies, there’s nothing so valuable or as anticipated as a year’s Top 10 Best Movies list. Even cinephiles who find list-making to be arbitrary or problematic can’t help but take notice of the flurry of Best Of submissions that flood the Internet in December and January.

At the end of each year, Movie Podcast Weekly (and separately, Horror Movie Podcast) assembles a Top 10 Best Movies of the Year list, where each host reveals his selections for the very best cinema of the past 12 months.

But something we love to do is to incorporate another Top 10 list that’s a collective consensus of our listenership’s favorite films of the year! Continue reading
