Podcast: The Predator / Top 3 80’s Sci-fi Movies – Episode 291

Podcast: The Predator / Top 3 80’s Sci-fi Movies – Episode 291

This week’s episode is brought to you by Freshbooks. Sign up today and get your first 30-days free!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discuss Shane Black’s The Predator and our Top 3 1980’s sci-fi movies! We also give a few brief thoughts on Support the Girls, The Wife and Operation Finale. And most importantly, we finally settle the debate as to who would win; a Predator or a Xenomorph.

Despite the quality of The Predator, we had a lot of fun with this show. As awards season approaches and ramps up, it’s refreshing to have shows where we sit back, relax a little bit and enjoy talking about sci-fi movies from the 80’s. At least that was the goal, and we hope you bask in fun as we did.

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 80’s Sci-fi Movies (1:07:19)
Not only are there some great sci-fi movies from the 1980’s, several of them are considered to be among the best films of all-time. So, this topic was arguably the most challenging we’ve done all year. How does one choose between The Empire Strikes Back, E.T., Blade Runner, Terminator, Aliens, Back to the Future and The Road Warrior? Or The Thing? The Abyss? Hell, even the original Predator? Man, there was some great sci-fi from that decade. That said, what would be your Top 3?
