Podcast: E.T. (Revisited) / Lightyear – Episode 487

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Steven Spielberg’s E.T. for its 40th anniversary and also Pixar’s latest film in Lightyear! Plus, JD gives his thoughts on Jurassic World: Dominion.

Our review of E.T. is technically our second discussion of it on the podcast as we did briefly talk about it on an Extra Film episode all the way back in 2013. We’re not sure if we recommend you going back to listen to that show as we were just young Padawan’s back then, but it’s there if you want to listen to us in our OG-form. At any rate, we had a lot of fun revisiting the film and talking through it once more. It’s always interesting to dive back into the world of Pixar as well.

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!

This week for our break segment, after missing out on the conversation last week, JD offers up his thoughts on Jurassic World: Dominion and why it’s not necessarily the dumpster fire that social media would have you believe.
