This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Sophie Hyde’s film Good Luck to You, Leo Grande and our Top 5 movies of the year so far! Plus, a few thoughts on Minions: The Rise of Gru and the documentary Unrivaled.

It’s hard to believe that it’s that we’re halfway through the year already. The year has some its fair share of great films, but it’s also had plenty of disappointments as well. On the whole, it’s been an up and down year, but my god has it been fantastic for immersive theatrical experiences. After the last few years especially, it’s been heavenly to go back to the theater and see these movies that have been so remarkably cinematic.

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, we had a lot of fun discussing the Extra Film boys as they started their James Cameron Movie Series. Given Ryan’s history with Cameron, we’ve already seen some great surprises. JD also gives us his thoughts on Minions: The Ruse of Gru, Morbius and the hockey documentary Unrivaled.

Top 5 Movies of 2022 (so far) (1:33:55)
After the last two years, it’s been exciting to just to see things get back to normal with theaters back at 100% and audiences throwing popcorn everywhere. That, in and of itself, has made for a fun year at the movies so far. But there’s also been some phenomenal movies in 2022 to this point. There is no doubt that a few of them will be heavy contenders at the end of the year. However, the year has also seen its fair shar of let downs as well. It may not be the strongest first-half on the whole, but there’s plenty to choose from for this exercise and we had a blast talking about our favorites of 2022 so far. That said, what would be your top 5?
