This week on the InSession Film Podcast, JD and Brendan discuss the films they’ve been catching up on as we near the end of the year and the ISF Awards! Plus, a conversation on Adam Driver revealing the initial path for Kylo Ren in the new Star Wars trilogy and a few thoughts on the Jonathan Majors situation.

– Jonathan Majors Situation (5:23)
We begin the show by talking about the recent conviction of Jonathan Majors and his subsequent firing by Disney in the aftermath of the court ruling. Firstly, our hearts go out to the victims. On the film side of things, however, we did want to talk about Marvel’s potential options and how the MCU is likely going to benefit from this move.

– Adam Driver / Kylo Ren (22:33)
As some of you may know, we are staunch defenders (especially JD) of The Force Awakens. It’s way more subversive than people give it credit for, particularly with how it set the foundation for Kylo Ren to have the reversal Darth Vader arc. We talked about that in 2015 when the film first came out, and countless other times on the show since. Well last week Adam Driver officially went public confirming the idea, so we absolutely had to talk about it.

– 2023 Catch Up (50:09)
We’ve been super busy watching films for all of our year-end festivities, and since we can’t get to all of them in official reviews, we wanted to bring some of them to the conversation here. Particularly we wanted to focus on The Taste of Things, Robot Dreams, The Peasants, American Symphony, Beyond Utopia and The Missing.
