This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Tim Costa from the First Time Watchers podcast and Michael from the War Machine vs War Horse podcast joins us as we review the very criticized Transformers: Age of Extinction, which is one of the best conversations we’ve ever had on the show. For our Top 3 this week, we actually do a Top 5 and discuss our Top 5 Movies of the Year so far, which was really fun. And we finally finish off our Transformers Movie Series with our discussion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Since the show went a little long once again, be sure to catch our Movies We’ve Seen This Week segment for this week’s Bonus Content.

This week, Blake had the week off once again but he will hopefully be back next week. Tim and Michael, however, were fantastic guests and helped create one of the more epic podcast’s we’ve ever had on the show. Even if you hate the Transformers franchise, this is definitely a show to check out. Also, be on the lookout for this week’s Extra Film where we review Snowpiercer, which as been a surprising hit with most people.

Anyway, check it out and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting our podcast!

Top 5 Movies of the Year (so far) (52:59)
The year started out kind of slow, as usual in January, but February had some good surprises and lead to a pretty descent spring. April and May were really solid months and June has been a solid addition to the summer as well. For us, the first half of 2014 has been pretty great and led to a lot of great choices for our Top 5 this week. That being said, what would be your Top 5?
