Feelin' Film

In a time when film criticism is as provocative as ever, Feelin' Film ventures to change the discussion from what we hate about a film to what we love about it. We judge more on emotional experience than technical merit. Every movie makes us feel something.

This week we head back to West Texas to cover another film adapted Buzz Bissinger’s best-selling book "Friday Night Lights." Unlike the rock-and-roll MTV version, this picture is more of a direct biopic. With Peter Berg at the helm, we can't help but be drawn in emotionally to its raw depiction of life chasing High School football glory. Enjoy this conversation about one of our favorite sports movies ever.

This week's episode is all joy and smiles as we discuss a Studio Ghibli animated classic. It's a film with innocence and purity that rarely exists, and is worth celebrating for the unique emotional response it creates in us.

September is officially upon us, but we haven’t forgotten about August just yet and specifically the donor pick selected by our awesome Patrons. The Wizard of Oz is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, just a couple of weeks ago in fact, and we are here to show it the love it deserves. Hop on the Yellow Brick road with us as we unpack this great American classic.

This week we enlist the help of listener J.B. Huffman to celebrate the start of football season by discussing one of our favorite movies featuring the sport, and our first of two episodes on films that adapted Buzz Bissinger’s best-selling book "Friday Night Lights." There's a lot more than just teenage antics going on in this film, and much of what it calls out about Texas HS football culture was ahead of its time.

For our fourth and final film in this year's Director Battle Month series, we dig into yet another dark and cynical crime thriller. As with No Country For Old Men last week, this film gives us a lot to chew on as the credits roll, and leaves a certain kind of feeling in the "Pitt" of your stomach.

For our third film in this year's Director Battle Month series, our Facebook group chose a Coen Bros. gem that many consider a masterpiece, but leaves others full of anger. We dig in to themes of choice and consequence, as well as chance and fate, for this neo-western conservation.

This week's second film in our 2019 Director Battle Month takes us on a fantastical adventure through the Republic of Zubrowka. We take some time out to marvel at the artistic genius of Wes Anderson before digging into the themes of the film that stem from the wonderful relationship between its two protagonists. Like the film itself, we hope this episode will largely make you smile, as our conversation did for us.

This week we are a little faster than usual, and a lot more furious as we discuss the first spin-off in our beloved Fast and Furious franchise. Truth be told this is one of the least positive episodes of our show, as this film we were so very looking forward to just did not work for us, but we keep that positive honesty and talk about the things we did like, as well.

For the first film of this August's Director Battle Month, our listeners chose a Hitchcock classic for us to discuss. We chat about some of the history surrounding the making of this thriller and try to figure out why we have so much empathy for the "bad guys".

Once upon a time on Feelin' Film, we gathered to discuss a new Quentin Tarantino film that shocked us not with its violence and exploitative nature, but with its sentimentality and unique marriage of fictional story with alternate history.

We approached TOY STORY 4 with apprehension, counting ourselves among those that considered Pixar's trilogy to be one of the best ever made and already "perfect". In this episode, Caless Davis joins us to discuss the new end of the TOY STORY franchise. We talk through our concerns and share what impacted us about Woody and the gang's latest chapter.

We tackle Joss Whedon's famous secretly filmed modern adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic comedy. With dual romances, plenty of manipulation and deception, and a wealth of hilarity this fantastic cast gives us an enjoyable translation of The Bard's work while speaking it word for word. Now away with haste and treat thine ears to the divine ramblings of two fools!

What better film to kick off the summer than a coming-of-age tale about a boy whisked away for a summer experience that challenges and changes him forever? We're excited to talk through one of our favorites in the genre this week - a film with charming performances, poignant themes, and lots of fun to be had.
