This week on Episode 379 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by our review of Fast Five, we discussed our Top 3 movie heists. Long time listener’s of the show may remember that on Episode 235 we discussed our top 3 movie heists after our review of Logan Lucky. However, JD wasn’t on that show and we thought it would be fun to revisit that particular list.
