From ‘Inside’ to the ‘Galaxy,’ these are our favorite movies of 2023
We finally made it. After 49 episodes, one live show, 10 special guests and more than 57 HOURS of Cinebuds podcast goodness (or 3,423 minutes and 34 seconds, if you prefer) in 2023, we are finally prepared to summarize the entire year in one sitting.
Consider this your “previously on …” episode where you get to catch up on everything that happened in the Cinebuds-iverse in the last 12 months. Well, not quite everything. We interviewed an Oscar winner, we investigated the world of Wisconsin true crime, and we even went to summer camp. You should absolutely go back and listen to those episodes. And this one, in which our movie-loving odd couple pick their favorites from 2023.
No, Dori and Kpolly don’t share an apartment, a la Felix Unger and Oscar Madison. But their approaches to compiling personal best-of lists certainly do. One, a fastidious note-taker. The other, a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants filmgoer. Which host is which? It will all be revealed — in the first 60 seconds, which leaves plenty of time to talk about the actual movies.
Dori’s list has a distinct flavor of nostalgia, while Kpolly’s wraps up with a double helping of favorite-itude (and by that we mean he couldn’t make up his mind so left it as a tie at the top). You can hear all of their picks in this week’s decidedly NOT 57-hour-long episode and make sure you catch every second of 2024 fun by subscribing to Cinebuds wherever you get your podcasts.
