Podcast: Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Top 5 Predictions for Fall 2017 – Episode 237

This week’s episode is brought to you by MoviePass, sign up today for just $9.99/month and see unlimited movies!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Steven Spielberg’s classic 1977 film Close Encounters of the Third Kind as it’s back in theaters for its 40th anniversary. We also preview the fall movie season with our Top 5 predictions for the films we’ll be seeing this fall (and December) to finish out the year.

This week’s show is also unique for a couple of reasons. One, we love getting to review all kinds of film, but especially movies that we consider to be one of our all-time favorites. Secondly, getting to look ahead to the fall is exciting as we consider the films that may end up topping the year as the very best. And thirdly, this is our first show as a member of the PodFix Network, an absolute honor that we are thrilled to be a part of going forward.

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!
