I generally dislike lists, and I can never seem to keep track of what I’ve watched in a year, but here we are.
2016 was perhaps the worst year in moviegoing for me…because I didn’t really see all that many films. The only reason I can present this dumb list to you is because I HAD to watch films for the podcast in order to talk about them.
Turns out, I watched JUST enough to come up with a (in my opinion) barely passable TOP TEN list. I’m sure a few of the movies listed will surprise you, but a majority of them won’t if you’ve listened to us ramble about movies all year. There’s also a television show on this list in the honorable mentions because – like I said – I’m not a huge fan of lists.
In order to write as little as possible for this post, I’ve resorted to using gifs from one of my favorite films – GALAXY QUEST. Turns out, you can use GALAXY QUEST gifs for pretty much anything in life. That said, let’s get crack-a-lackin’ on my TOP 10 MOVIES IN 2016 THAT THIS SILLY PODCAST MADE ME WATCH!

The hype machine is an unavoidable beast. No matter how much you want to ignore it, it’s always there, lurking in the corners of your internet browser. Cruising by on buses as you sit at a red light. Plastered on the side of buildings! Everywhere you look… movies.
Being the the host of a movie podcast, I feed right into this situation. I love talking movies, and I get really excited about them.The problem is, sometimes, I think we all get a little too fired up. We end up launching mediocre films into the stratosphere. On the flip side, we are so worked up about some of these movies, we totally ignore others. In this vein I present to you, the top five over and underrated films of 2016!

Hey everyone! Ryan here, emerging from the Comic Corner to bring you 2016’s TOP 7 LEAST-WORST COMIC BOOK MOVIES.
To keep it from being any longer, I only included the live action theatrical releases, so no mention of Batman: The Killing Joke on this list. They were easy to rank at the top, but the rest were engaged in a nosedive race to the bottom.
I gave it my best shot anyway, enjoy!

Did you have a good holiday? I bet it wasn’t as crazy as the one that Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, and Anthony Mackie experienced in THE NIGHT BEFORE. Bet it didn’t involve a weed-dispensing Michael Shannon, and we’re willing to bet it didn’t involve taking a miniature train through a light tunnel to attend the biggest party of the year. It was that crazy? Oh. Well. Cheers. Special guest Erik Steffens joins us for this wild and crazy episode!
