Podcast: The BFG, Top 5 Movies of 2016 (so far) – Episode 176

This podcast is brought to you by us and our InSession Film Podcast: Bonus Content! Be sure to check out all the fun bonus episodes we have available for you.

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Andrew from the AB Film Review Podcast joins us to discuss Steven Spielberg’s latest fantasy adventure, The BFG. We also discuss our Top 5 movies of 2016 so far, which has featured some great films already.

It was a huge pleasure to finally get Andrew on the show, he was a fantastic guest and we loved the diverse picks he brought to this week’s Top 5 segment. JD also marks his return after missing the last two weeks and there is a moment in the second half of the show that is an absolute first for our podcast. Yes, that is vague but when it happens, you’ll know.

Anyway, check out the show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 5 Movies of 2016 (so far) – Part 1 (43:21)
2016 may be a bit divisive depending on who you ask, but if you ask us, it has been a real good year for film so far. We’ve already seen some great gems from Richard Linklater, Jeff Nichols, the Coen brothers, John Carney as well as other notable directors. This year’s summer blockbusters may be hit or miss, but early on in the year, Deadpool, The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War took the box office by storm and are films worthy of contention for this list too. For Part 1, we hand out our #5, #4 and #3 picks of our lists. On that note, 2016 has given us some great stuff so far, so what would be your top 5?

Our third segment this week features Part 2 of our Top 5 segment where we give our our #2 and #1 picks.

In all seriousness though, we had a blast discussing the films we consider the best of 2016 so far.
