Podcast: Top 3 War Movie Scenes
This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we looked at David Ayer’s new WWII tank film, Fury, starring Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman and Shia Labeouf. War movies have always been an entertaining genre with films that feature some incredible highlights, somber journey’s, rough characters and heroism that most of us will never understand. Some war movies feature some really powerful moments that have become to define and represent the genre, as I think Fury will in the future. We scoured through many and we found some really great scenes to talk about.
