This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Brent Allen helps co-host with JD as Dan from MWire Weekly joins us to review the latest war epic, Lone Survivor starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster. Going off of that, we discuss our Top 3 U.S. War Movie Scenes, which took a lot of homework but it was a great conversation. We recorded this epidose just hours before the 2014 Golden Globes, so we gave our predictions, which may or may not have been accurate. And as usual, to top off the show, we discussed the films we saw over the last week (or two).
***Note – We recorded this podcast just hours before the 2014 Golden Globes went live, so you’ll know right away whether or not we scored well with our predictions. It was a lot of fun and we didn’t do too bad, although the best one had to be Brent’s prediction for The Great Beauty. Wait till you hear it, it’s absolutely hysterical. Also, this is Dan’s first time on the show and he was a fantastic guest. He’s a good friend of the show and we encourage you to check out everything he does at MWire Weekly and GeekCastRadio.
Anyway, we hope you have fun listening to this week’s show. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!
– Lone Survivor Movie Review (2:58)
– Top 3 U.S. War Movie Scenes (33:04)
For the record, when we say “U.S”, we don’t mean U.S. based movies but referring to the United States Military. Since Lone Survivor was based of U.S. Navy Seals, we decided to condense it down to our very own military for this specific Top 3. There are a lot of great war movies and therefore, there are a ton of great movie scenes as well. This took a lot of homework, but we came up with some pretty great scenes. What would be your Top 3 U.S. war movie scenes?
– 2014 Golden Globe Predictions (1:00:19)
So how did we do? When you break it down, we did a pretty good job, especially if you consider who we would of liked to of vote for vs who we though would win. Sometimes predicting these things can be pretty easy, given all the hype and news out there now-a-days. For the most part, the Globes went pretty straight forward, although there was some fun elements we didn’t see coming. Either way, we had a ton of fun predicting the winners and if you ask me, we killed it.
