List: Top 3 Revenge Movies
This week on Episode 482 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by our review of Munich, we discuss our favorite revenge movies. Revenge movies have been a staple in Hollywood for decades now, and have even defined certain genres, that it makes narrowing down a list here pretty difficult. However, it also leaves plenty of room for variety and different types of revenge in these movies. It was a really fun time talking about those distinctions and why these kinds of films resonate with us. That said, here are our lists:
