Podcast: Transformers: The Last Knight, Top 3 Movies We Want Sequels To – Episode 227

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, God help us as we sit back and review the latest in the “Bayformers” with Transformers: The Last Knight. Original co-host and great friend of the show (and soon-to-be-father) Nate Parsons joins us once again, making for one cathartic but necessary trio this week. And inspired by yet another Transformers sequel, we also discuss our Top 3 movies we actually want sequels for, and conclude with a segment of Let’s Rethink This.

We have made it rather clear in the past that we are somewhat apologetic to the Transformers films, being tied to the property nostalgically, and have also been willing to admit that Michael Bay has done some great and fun work in the past. Do our apologetic hearts still get the best of us, or has this franchise finally sunk dead in its waters? Hopefully this discussion alleviates any judgment we may have received after our The Book of Henry review.

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 Movies We Want Sequels To (41:43)
Inspired by having yet another “Bayformers” to contend with, we decided to tackle the movies that we actually want sequels for. This is appropriate as we are joined by original co-host Nate Parsons, who back on Episode 29 was still here for our discussion of Top 3 sequels we didn’t need (in honor of that show’s review of Riddick); now it was time to turn the tables, and in the best way possible. Some movies we have personal ties to, and would love to see their respective notions explored further; other films actually require sequels, and we talk all of the above. That said, what would be your top 3?

– Let’s Rethink This (1:28:34)

For this segment, we discuss a particular Hollywood-related topic and offer our reasoning why Hollywood needs to, well, rethink their strategy. In some ways this gives us a chance to rant about particular movie items that have been seen as problematic to say the least, and with the amount of corporate meddling in the film industry these days, that gave us plenty to chew on.
