This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Diego Crespo from the Waffle Press Podcast joins us to review Bad Boys For Life, a film we’ve been highly anticipating for some time. So, it makes sense that we also discussed our Top 5 most anticipated films of 2020 as well.
As you could assume, after a long, but thorough celebration of film in 2019 last week, this week’s show marks the first of our 2020 campaign. We are hoping for great things this year and it was really fun to go though many of the films we’ll get to experience over the next twelve months. Also, a big thanks to Diego for joining us as well. Aside from JD, he’s arguably the biggest Bad Boys fan out there, so we had to have him on the show this week. And we are super grateful that he made time for us. Here’s to another great year in film!
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!

– Notes / Oscar Nominations (43:49)
The InSession Film Awards always carry a toll, so there are no catch up reviews this week as we transition to 2020, however the nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards came out last week and we felt compelled to talk about them. As always, it’s a mixed bag of disappointment and joy, but this year’s batch of noms are pretty good overall.

It’s a new year and that means there are a lot of new movies for us to look forward to this year. 2019 was a wonderful year for film and it should be really exciting to see how or if that progression continues into 2020. In terms of mainstream entertainment, there’s more uncertainty this year than what we’ve seen the last few years. No Time to Die, Wonder Woman 1984 and Black Widow should be hits, but there’s no guarantees for others such as Eternals, Morbius, Godzilla vs Kong, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and Dune among others. Mulan should be a big hit, but it’s less talked about than other gems from the Disney Renaissance era. Even musicals such as West Side story and In the Heights are somewhat up in the air, although we do expect to have some play with audiences. More than anything, this will be the year of the long-awaited sequel with movies like Top Gun: Maverick, Bad Boys For Life, Coming 2 America and Bill & Ted Face the Music. The indie and auteur circuit is where 2020 could really thrive though. We are going to see plenty of great directors releasing new projects this year, and it looks quite exciting on that front. We had a lot to discuss here and it was fun talking about what the year has to offer. That said, what would be your top 5?
