Podcast: The Fifth Estate, Top 3 Computer Genius Characters, Movie Accuracies – Episode 35

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review the new Wikileaks movie, The Fifth Estate starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Bruhl. We then get our geek on and discuss our Top 3 Computer Genius Characters and how we’ll never be that smart. We also have a really fun conversation about movie accuracies and if people’s perception changes if the movie’s story isn’t 100% accurate. And as always, we finish of the show with some movie news and a longer-than-normal look at the movies we saw over the last week.

This week was suppose to feature Drew Koenig from MovieBuffHaven.com, but scheduling conflicts at the last second, kept him off the show. He’s a great guy tho, so check him out. This week was still a lot of fun and we had some great conversation. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Hope you enjoy it and thanks for listening!

  1. I just caught up with your podcast and I really dig it. The news about a possible Pacific Rim 2 make me smile quite big. I’m always in the hunt for new movie podcasts and glad I found another one to follow. Currently I am working my ways through your backlog.

    I am an up and coming podcaster myself. A few others and I just recently revamped a podcast a few weeks ago and I would be curious to hear what you think. If you have any interest you can check it out here:
