Monday, 27 March, 2017

Movie Matters Podcast

In Part 2 of our annual Top 10 Films of the Year bonanza, co-hosts Lee Howard and Michael Mackenzie continue the countdown and discussion of their favourite movies released in 2016. If you haven't already, be sure to seek out and listen to Part 1 (covering our picks 10 to 5 plus a whole lot more) before diving into this second instalment.

The bulk of this episode is understandably dedicated to resuming our Top 10 countdown with an appreciation of picks 4, 3 and 2 in our individual lists before finally unveiling and discussing our personal picks for our favourite film of the year.

Also, interspersed throughout the episode is a showcase of the remaining community submissions from the Movie Matters listeners, including an MP3 from James Perkins of GameBurst, The Renaissance Men and The Digital Fix Film Podcast. We also tally up and disclose the results of our usual collated Movie Matters Listener Top 10 Fave Films of the Year and other related categories based on all submissions received. Once again, we thank again each and every one of you who participated in sending in your own list for this special two-parter.

We also take the opportunity to briefly name and shame our least liked UK 2016 releases (expect our customarily controversial picks). Plus we highlight our honourable mentions - the films that narrowly got pushed out of our Top 10s. Moreover, we give a quick mention for our favourite TV shows broadcast in the past twelve months and our most cherished home video releases of the year. To close, we offer a mini-preview of the upcoming 2017 UK releases we are most keen to see.

The music in this episode is sampled from a selection of films eligible for inclusion in our Top 10 lists. We'll keep the identities of the tracks a mystery, but why not try and guess the films as these musical cues appear throughout the show?

We hope you enjoy listening to parts one and two of the Movie Matters Top 10 Films of 2016 special. Do let us know your thoughts on our lists and any other feedback you'd care to give us by sending an email to or leaving a comment on our website. Thank you.
