Happy New Year, listeners! Using the wonders of time travel, granted via the magic of editing and our characteristic sporadic podcast release schedule, we bring you back to Christmas of the very recent past with our nearly annual Movie Matters Christmas show.
As is our seasonal custom, we begin by exchanging what were early Christmas gifts, before proceeding to featured discussions of those films. We also catch up on any festive viewing we have enjoyed and what 2015 release cramming we have squeezed in ahead of our upcoming 'Films of the Year' special. Finally, we conduct the first batch of the Movie Matters listener random BD/DVD lucky dip draw. To enter, simply leave us a review on our NEW iTunes Feed.
If you would like to contribute a list for our next show — our annual Films of the Year special — please send a short MP3 (5 mins max) or a text list, counting down your Top 10 Films, as well as a name-checking for your biggest disappointment, most pleasant surprise and worst movie of the year, to our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org — deadline Saturday 9th January.
The music in this episode is sampled from NATIONAL LAMPOON'S CHRISTMAS VACATION (Lindsey Buckingham), A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT (Federale; White Lies), STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (John Williams), THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY (Cat's Eyes), the KRAMPUS rendition of Auld Lang Syne (Douglas Pipes), and Disney's rendition of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".
