Podcast: Top 3 Movies from Actors in Days of Future Past

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed the pretty good X-Men: Days of Future Past. One of the obvious and biggest highlights about the film, is the amazing cast that it has to offer. Even though some of these actors and actresses aren’t in the film a lot and several are only cameos, we considered all of them. A lot of these actors have some impressive resumes, which gave us a lot of great films to choose from for this Top 3. Most of us did not consider The Lord of the Rings because it would have been too easy for us, but other than that, we looked at pretty much any actor featured in DOFP.

That being said, which movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours (Keep in mind we all have different criteria for our lists as well):


1) Ellen Page – Juno
2) James McAvoy – Atonement
3) Michael Fassbender – Shame


1) Hugh Jackman – The Prestige
2) Michael Fassbender – Inglorious Bastards
3) Ian McKellen – Apt Pupil


1) Anna Paquin – Almost Famous
2) Ellen Page – Inception
3) Jennifer Lawrence – American Hustle


1) Hugh Jackman – The Prestige
2) Halle Berry – Monster’s Ball
3) Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings Playbook

Honorable Mentions (Combined)

The Lord of the Rings, Animorphs, Braveheart (Blake really stretches for this one), Rounders, Whip-It, Elf, Super,
