Episode 080 - The Best of 2016!!

It's finally time! We've seen all the movies we can possibly pack into our slate to fill out the movie year for 2016 and it's time to count down the best of the best. Justin and myself are here with our top ten films of 2016, as well as a few honorable mentions and some major disappointments. The list won't be without controversy for some listeners I'm sure, but that's us! We are who we are and we love what we love!

Also this week, our newest segment, thumbs up/thumbs down returns with YOUR feedback! We'll be opening this segment up each week for you to weigh in on what deserves a thumbs up or a thumbs down for that particular week. We've also got another Patrick Swayze clip for you this week as our January featured actor segment rolls on. All that and "What're ya Drinkin'?" and the Hobster stumbles his way in from yet another bender. Thank you very much for listening! We'll see you at the movies!!!
