With the 2010s finished up, both Jacob and Ricky will be conducting a “Favorite of the 10s Bracket Showdown” to find out which film, picked by these two, is the “Favorite of the 10s”. They have both posted their top 8 selections here and will adjust this on a weekly basis until they reach their number one film of the decade. Each week, Jacob and Ricky will plead, argue, and try to convince you guys to choose their films. The voting will be done on Twitter (@MCDIPod), and the votes will be announced at the beginning of the following episode.
