It’s that time of year again for the Now Conspiring podcast to count off their favorite movies of 2016! There were a lot of great movies to pick from and some obvious overlap here and there (aside from our Top #1 picks), so sit back and relax as we reflect on our most enjoyable cinematic experiences of the year.
We also recorded a Bonus Rogue One episode this week, which you can stream directly here.
Question of the Week: What was your favorite movie and/or movie moment of 2016?
And we’re back. The Now Conspiring hiatus is over, and we have a lot to talk about, like how much we like (and dislike) some recent movies and TV shows. Arrival, Moana, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them are all highlights, but as always, Sam talks about something I’ve already forgotten about.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Did you watch Doctor Strange and if so, did you like it?
Let us know your thoughts (and your favorite podcast moments) in the comments, which we may read on next week’s show!
