Pontypool Episode 102   2013 in Review
Seriously gang, where does the time go? Feels like just yesterday I was redoing an entire episode dedicated to ZERO DARK THIRTY. Now here we are tying off 2013.

My goal for next year’s year-in-review episode is to get it in under eighty minutes, since for the third year running, this has taken the mark as the longest Matineecast episode ever. It beat the old mark by about five minute, and appropriately enough the old mark was held by the “2011 in review” episode. This one even beat the hundredth episode and that sucker brought together nine voices.

The Matineecast comes built with chapter stops. use them liberally.

For the third year in a row I bring you an episode that is far more collaborative than most, and I want to thank everybody who helped me bring it together. I know I’m a pain in the ass when it comes to requesting contributions, but I believe it makes for something more representative of how I engage with film than if I’d done this whole thing solo. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: going to the movies introduced me to so many wonderful people – both around the world and here at home .

As usual, if you’re curious about the songs used as bed music, the track list can be found below in the show notes.

As mentioned within the introduction, if you find the bed music distracting, a music-free version of this episode can be found here.

Here’s what’s in store in episode one-hundred-and-two…
