This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Kevin Thompson from CinemaGeeks joins us to discuss Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and our Top 3 against the grain movies of 2019! JD and Brendan also give our thoughts on Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems.

The Star Wars discourse right now is as heated it’s ever been, and understandably from a certain point of view, but we tried to be open-minded with our thoughts on the film. We expect a good portion of you will disagree with us, but hopefully we can all be friendly and cordial. And if you’re tired of all the Rise of Skywalker talk, feel free to skip ahead to our thoughts on Uncut Gems and the Top 3. We won’t be offended!

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 / Uncut Gems (1:17:49)
As noted above, we were able to catch up with the Safdie brothers’ latest film Uncut Gems, starring Adam Sandler. For long time listeners of the show, you may remember that we were not big fans of the Safdie brothers prior to Uncut Gems, but that may have changed with this one.

Top 3 Against the Grain Movies of 2019 (1:39:50)
For clarity, these are the movies we liked more than most people, which should make the feedback interesting since the nature of this topic means that we’ll be in the minority opinion regarding these films. But, that’s also what makes it a lot of fun at the same time. That said, what would be your Top 3?
