Episode 170

Happy New Year’s Eve and happy 2016 this week! To celebrate, we have brought you a party in a podcast! What are the best movies of 2015? Your friends here at Movie Podcast Weekly (and the MPW listenership) are here to tell you. We bring you four Top 10 best lists from the hosts and a collective Top 10 list from our listenership. We had the potential of bringing you 50 strong recommendations, but we’ve had some overlap, naturally, so you get 27 various picks among these Top 10 lists! Formerly known as our “The Best Movies of [Year]” list, this is MPW’s official Top 10 Movies of 2015 show. In Episode 170, we also bring you a Feature Review of The Big Short, with special guest Rob Booker (of The Traders Podcast). Join us, and feel free to post your end-of-the-year movie lists in the comments for this episode. Thanks for a great year!
