This week on the InSession Film Podcast, our own Joey Gentile joins us to discuss the new iteration of Mortal Kombat and the debacle that was this year’s Oscars ceremony. Plus, we continue our Michael Mann Movie Series with his 1992 film The Last of the Mohicans!
Big thanks to Joey for joining us this week. His impassioned takes and fun energy is always contagious, and this time it was no different. He may be an awards guru, but it turns out he’s a big fan of the Mortal Kombat franchise as well, which made for some interesting conversation. And then we turned our attention to The Last of the Mohicans, of all films. A bizarre double feature this week, but it made for an interesting thrill ride.
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!

– Notes / Reaction to 2021 Oscars (58:05)
You’ll have to forgive us, as our decision to talk about the 93rd Academy Awards rendered a longer podcast than normal for us, but we had to get into the debacle that was the 2021 Oscars. It may have been an unfortunate year, in many respects, yet it was still a pretty good year for movies. Somehow, though, The Academy found a way to botch the celebration. We, of course, talk about that and the fallout from this past weekend.
