Podcast: Draft Day, Top 3 Sports Movie Characters, Movie News – Episode 60

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, one of our very own website writers, James Shaw, joins us to help review Draft Day, the new NFL experiment starring Kevin Costner that takes us behind the scenes of the 2014 NFL draft. Going off of that, we discuss our Top 3 Sports Movie Characters as well as discuss some of the latest movie news, including a new Transformers trilogy and how Sony is ruining the Spider-Man franchise. And as usual we discuss the films we saw over the last week, including a film that featured a pretty good Nicholas Cage performance. And no you didn’t read that wrong.

James is a good writer for us and was just as great on the podcast. He has a vast array of knowledge when it comes to film, especially comic book movies, which made our third segment really fun and in-depth. And once again, it’s great to have Blake back on the show after being out for so long. Even if you’re not an NFL, we hope you check out the show and enjoy the discussion.

Anyway, check it out and have fun listening to this week’s podcast. Let us know what you think in the comment section below and thanks for listening!

Top 3 Sports Movie Characters (33:30)
This week for our Top 3, since we’ve done our favorite sports movies, we decided to look at our favorite sports characters. Many people could have characters that are considered “classic” as well as they movies they are in, however, we didn’t necessarily consider that. We looked at characters that represented something more personal and something we enjoyed very much. Each of us had slightly different criteria but that’s more or less how we looked at our lists this week. What would be in your Top 3?
