Movie Podcast Weekly Ep. 171: The Hateful Eight (2016) and Daddy’s Home (2015) and Most Anticipated Movies of 2016

Episode 171

Happy New Year! It’s 2016, and it’s our first edition of Movie Podcast Weekly for this year… This is Episode 171. We don’t have Karl the acting Irishman with us, but your other three hosts hold down the fort and bring you Feature Reviews of The Hateful Eight (2016) and Daddy’s Home (2015). And due to listener request, we also bring you a Tarantino Retrospective, where we rank QT’s eight films in order of greatness, according to our personal preferences. (This leads to a great debate over “Kill Bill Vols. 1 and 2.”) And our main event for this episode is our overview of MPW’s Most Anticipated Movies of 2016!

Also, thanks to a guy named Andy, he has provided a PDF version of the special edition playbill that attendees receive at the 70mm Roadshow Presentation of “The Hateful Eight” by downloading it here: The Hateful Eight Roadshow Playbill (courtesy of Andy) Continue reading

Movie Podcast Weekly Ep. 170: The Big Short (2015) and the Top 10 Movies of 2015

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!
