Podcast: Dark Phoenix / Top 3 X-Men Scenes – Episode 329

This week’s episode is brought to you by Loot Crate. Order today and save 10%!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Jay Ledbetter fills in for Brendan as we talk Dark Phoenix and our Top 3 X-Men scenes! JD also gives his thoughts on Rocketman, while Jay updates us on his reaction to John Wick: Parabellum and Her Smell.

If you’re a fan of civil and firm debate, then you are going to enjoy this show. Jay and JD did not see eye to eye on Dark Phoenix and it made for some really fun conversation. Regardless of how you feel about the film, though, we did our best to honor this franchise as an era comes to an end. The original X-Men film did so much in changing Hollywood perspective on superhero films, and almost 20 years later, this iteration is over with the characters now entering the MCU (presumably). So, join us as we not only debate Dark Phoenix, but talk about the best X-Men moments and our favorite characters with our poll.

That said, 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!

If you listened to our latest Extra Film podcast, you would have heard Jay’s thoughts on the film, but JD was finally able to see Rocketman and offered up his thoughts as well. Jay also caught up with John Wick: Parabellum and Her Smell, so it was fun to revisit those once again to see where he landed on them.

Top 3 X-Men Scenes (1:21:36)
The X-Men franchise has had its ups and downs, but the one thing we can all (hopefully) agree on, is that it’s had many great scenes that work very well on their own terms. Whether it be the memorable and exciting moments of action, the bursts of emotion we get at times, or the great performances of these films, there are plenty of great scenes to choose from. And hopefully we did the franchise justice with our picks this week. That said, what would be your Top 3?
