Podcast: Annihilation / 2018 Oscar Predictions – Episode 262

This week’s episode is brought to you by Grammarly. Download the app today for free!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, former co-host Scott Pollard joins us once again as we review Alex Garland’s latest sci-fi epic in Annihilation. And with the 90th Oscars just around the corner, we thought we would give our predictions for next weekend’s ceremony.

We also thought it would be fun to re-visit Black Panther, specifically the Killmonger character, and talk about villains of the MCU. Maybe they’re not as bad as you think? Big thanks to Scott for joining us once again, it’s always a pleasure to have him on the show.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

– Movie Review: Annihilation (3:22)
Director: Alex Garland
Writer: Alex Garland
Stars: Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson

– Villains in MCU (43:56)

Friend of the show, Diego Crespo, wrote a very compelling article this last week where he argued that the Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn’t quite have the “villain problem” despite the perception they do. Using that as inspiration, we continued our debate over Killmonger vs Loki and other villains in the MCU.
