In the first Movie Matters recording of 2014 we deliver our annual ‘bumper-size’ retrospective on the past 12 months in film. Join co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie as we count down our personal top ten films of 2013. We also catch up on our Christmas movie viewing and trade notes on our customary exchange of BD-shaped gifts. In addition, we name and shame some of the biggest disappointments and worst films of the year as well as highlighting those movies which succeeded or failed for our loyal listeners. Finally, we round out this extended special episode by looking ahead to the coming months and cherry pick some of our most anticipated films for this year.
The music in this episode is sampled from a selection of films eligible for inclusion in our Top 10 lists, but we shall say no more in the interest of maintaining an air of mystery!
PS. As ever, we’re keen to hear from you. What films are you most looking forward to in 2014? Did you agree or disagree strongly with the views expressed in this show or have any other responses to our Top 10s to share with us? Plus, what did you think of the structure of this ‘Year in Review’ episode? Did you like the new collated listener lists or would you rather see a return to the previous format of having the listeners’ lists read out in full - be it kept separate or interspersed with the hosts’ Top 10s? Let us know as we’re still experimenting with how best to present these epic-length instalments each year. Thanks for listening and being part of Movie Matters.comments powered by Disqus
