John and Matt's TDF Podcast - 2017 End of Year Review

Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year, and welcome to the podcast formerly known as The TDF Film Podcast! Just like last year the old men of our original podcast have come together for a one-off special examining the year's cinema, but this year we have been joined by our old cohort, the wise sage of the TDF: Gary Couzens.

This year we have each put together our Top 10 films (see below) and in the accompanying podcast we discuss a select number of the films on each individual list whilst taking a reflective stance on the year of 2017 as a whole. It's been a somewhat uneven year for blockbusters with major blockbusters underperforming compared to previous years and of course Hollywood has been shaken to its core by various allegations of misconduct against major figures, so there's plenty here for our team of dilapidated critics to discuss! Now on to the content:
