Podcast: Sicario: Day of the Soldado / Top 5 Movies of 2018 (so far) – Episode 280

This week’s episode is brought to you by and our awesome listener’s like you. Sign up today and get some cool gifts in the process!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss the-not-so-great sequel Sicario: Day of the Soldado, starring Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro. But we make up for that by revealing our Top 5 movies of the year so far!

We were supposed to be joined by the great Walter Vinci from the First Time Watchers podcast this week, but due to some scheduling issues, he was name able to make it. However, we will remedy that because he is long overdue to being a guest on our show. We still had a lot of fun on this week’s show, despite Soldado offering up a bit of frustration, it didn’t diminish the love we poured over our the films in our Top 5.

Let us know what you think in the comment section and thanks for listening to the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 5 Movies of 2018 (so far) – Part 1 (49:28)
2018 – for us anyway -has been a pretty rich year so far. Sure, it’s had a few blemishes, but overall it’s had a great mix of both mainstream and indie films – perhaps even some of the best we’ll see all year. This exercise, while somewhat stressful, is always fun and we had a blast discussing the five films that have stood out to us so far this year. For Part 1, we discuss our #5, #4 and #3 picks.
