Podcast: The Green Knight / Top 3 1980s Fantasy Films – Episode 441

This week’s episode is brought to you by the InSession Film Store. Get your ISF gear today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss David Lowery’s The Green Knight and our Top 3 fantasy films from the 1980s! Plus, a few brief thoughts on Disney’s Jungle Cruise.

As you’ll hear in the review, we are big fans of Lowery and The Green Knight has been one of our most anticipated films going back to last year. And it was quite the treat to finally see its friendly Christmas games. Given its symbolism and ambiguity, there’s plenty to talk about and we did our best to decipher what it all means. We also had a ton of fun looking back to the 1980s as well. All in all, a really fun show this week.

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!

Top 3 1980s Fantasy Films (1:21:01)
We’ve talked about our favorite action movies from previous decades, so it made sense to do the same thing for other genres as well. The 1980s isn’t just a nostalgic era for us, but it’s chock full of fantasy films that make for a rich conversation. Some of these films permeated the culture in ways that still resonate today. Others of the time may not hold up, but either way, there was plenty to mine for this exercise and we had a lot of fun with it. That said, what would be your top 3?
