The B-Movies Podcast #330 | The Best and Worst Movies of 2017 (So Far)
It’s been six months and 2017 has already been one of the weirdest years for movies on record, with some of the best movies of the year coming out in the first six months already, and some of the worst movies of the decade coming out in that exact same span of time. This week, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take stock of the best and worst movies of 2017, and some of your favorite films are going to make an appearance, along with some films that you might never have heard of before (unless you’ve been listening to our podcast).
Also this week, Bibbs and Witney review the latest blockbuster Spider-Man reboot, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the acclaimed new supernatural drama A Ghost Story. They also have a few NSFW words to say about this whole “post-horror” nonsense people are spewing online, and they also find time to read YOUR limericks, which you’ve been sending us for weeks!
Do you want to send us your thoughts, questions, complaints, innermost secrets and yes, even your limericks? Be sure to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll read them on the air!
