  1. The Final Cinephile Showdowns (RIP 2015-2020):

    Something I always wanted to do was to revisit the staff’s Top 10 Greatest Films of All Time series from 2012, but through Cinephile Showdowns. I don’t think I would have asked for you to do this many in one episode, but since this is my last chance to do so AND the last episode, I intend to keep you all here for as long as reasonably possible. We’re digging up the time capsule and bringing these lists full circle. (Presented in the order they were at the time, and if you don’t want to do all of these now you could always leave some for next Sunday.)

    If that weren’t enough I would like to ask Karen or anyone else who wasn’t on the site at the time who is on this podcast/video hangout to do their own Top 10s because remember, I have no respect for your time and just want these conversations to last forever and ever.

    I’ve been listening to these podcasts every single week for close to a decade, and I know that my weeks are going to feel just a little emptier now that everyone’s moving on. Thank you so much to everyone for answering all of my questions over the years and for helping me feel like I was a small part of this amazing community. You’re all my heroes and I’ll really miss these podcasts a lot.

  2. Will the previous podcasts still be available to listen to after September 1st? Ive enjoyed going back and listening to them again, or catching ones I’ve missed.
