Our recent “Top 10” episode saw a massive listener response, with audience members old and new sending us in their own personal favourite (and least favourite) titles of 2012. We’ve put together a collated list drawing on all listener submissions.
The rankings below represent the ten films most popular among the lists submitted by our listeners. The system used to compile the list is simply to apply a numerical count to the number of occasions a specific title is included on a list regardless of ranking.

Later than intended and longer than anticipated, the Movie Matters podcast returns for its first instalment of the new year. In the first part of this bumper six-hour epic, co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie count down their personal top ten films of the previous year, celebrating both the very best and worst that 2012 had to offer. In part two, the attention shifts to the listeners’ choices as Lee and Michael read out and listen to MP3s of submitted Top 10 lists, before turning their attention to the year ahead, revealing their most anticipated films of the next twelve months.
The music in this episode is all sampled from films in our Top 10 lists.
PS. Listeners, we want YOUR feedback. What do you think of the format for this year’s show? Do you like the listeners’ lists being kept separate, or would you prefer them to be interspersed with the hosts’ Top 10 lists? Do you like the show being split into two instalments, or would you prefer just to have a single MP3 file? Let us know how this experiment was for you, and we’ll take any suggestions into consideration this time next year when we come to do our “best of 2013” show.
