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.

For this special minisode we are covering a film that blew us away on our first viewings, but we’ve patiently waited for it to be released on Blu-ray so that more would have the chance to see it before we had this discussion. Your Name, directed by Makoto Shinkai, is the story of a star-crossed boy and girl, perhaps destined to forever yearn for a meeting that will never come, connected across space and time by an unexplainable magic and framed against the backdrop of an but is also technically marvelous in both visuals and sound. We hope you enjoy this conversation on one of our anime favorites.

With the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi right around the corner, we take a look back at the first film in this newest trilogy. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was met with great critical acclaim and yet a number of fans also loudly complained that it might just be too nostalgic. We discuss our first experience with the film and how it's aged for us, now two years later, and get ourselves (and hopefully you) ready for Episode VIII.

Pixar's newest film Coco puts the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in the spotlight and explores fascinating cultural traditions with its vibrant animation and music. We discuss how Coco makes us feel and also talk about Kedi, a wonderful documentary about the cats roaming the streets of Istanbul and the people who love them. This episode is a happy one, and we hope our conversation captures the joy that these two films brought us.

Dark-comedy, scathing political satire, drama about human nature, or all of the above? David O. Russell's Three Kings is a mixture of tones with a lot to say about the Persian Gulf War wrapped in an often funny, sometimes brutal adventure story. We dig in to this November Donor Pick and see if we can find the gold within.

Feelin' Film writer Jeremy Calcara joins us for a discussion about one of our favorite coming-of-age films. The Edge of Seventeen is unique in its rejection of typical genre tropes in order to tell a more realistic and innocent story. With memorable characters and relationships, this is a film we expect to find ourselves revisiting often, and talking about it brings us great joy.

In this minisode we discuss Agatha Christie’s often adapted book to film, Murder on the Orient Express, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh, along with Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Josh Gad, Penelope Cruz, Leslie Odom Jr., Willem Dafoe, and a handful of other people potentially accused of murder. This story is special for a reason and we enjoy talking about the ethics and morality at play, while also gushing over a beautiful visual aesthetic in the film.

For this week's episode we find ourselves leaving travelling with the mighty Thor on his third solo adventure. Indie filmmaker Taika Waititi takes the reigns of the MCU and molds Thor: Ragnarok with his signature comedic style. The result is an aesthetically unique, visually striking, and hilarious new superhero film. But is that enough? We both enjoyed the film, but its absence of emotional weight provides us with an opportunity for a big conversation about how important stakes are in the comic book film genre.

This week, in honor of Veteran’s Day, we are talking what we consider to be one of the most affecting war movies ever made, Black Hawk Down, Ridley Scott’s adaptation of the Mark Brown account of the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu. This episode is a bit more somber than usual because there is nothing funny about this film. It is unflinchingly brutal in its depiction of war and its effect on those who wage it. We have a frank discussion about the ferocity of war, courage, and ultimate sacrifice.

For our 2017 Halloween episode, we are discussing the 1999 cult classic film that launched the found footage genre. The Blair Witch Project featured an incredible viral marketing campaign on its way to becoming the 2nd highest return on investment in film history. Listen for a great conversation that covers the films history, our thoughts on how scary it is, and some intriguing theories about the ending, plus much more.

For October's Donor Pick Episode we're discussing Wes Craven's masterpiece that revived the slasher genre in the 90's. That's right, it's the iconic Scream, with all its self-awareness, gore, and that incredible opening scene. We talk about just how great Craven really was, as well a conversation about whether or not horror movies turn people violent. Enjoy this special Halloween minisode.

On this week's episode we cover our first of three scary movies for this October. Patrick called out sick but the show must go on and the People's Critic, Tim Hall, fills in admirably to talk about one of his favorite movies of all-time. The Thing is well known for its incredible special effects, but there is much more to explore in this paranoia-filled sci-fi horror.

It is inconceivable to us that The Princess Bride turns 30 years old this year. This classic is cemented into pop culture, known for its memorable dialogue. Surprisingly, we manage not to turn this episode into a quote-a-long (although it was pretty tempting). We do, however, find plenty of themes to discuss - like friendship, revenge, and (of course) true love. It is an extra special treat to talk through one of our favorite films of all-time and we think you'll enjoy this one.

For the second week in a row we've got replicant fever and are trying to answer that nagging question, "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" Blade Runner 2049 inspires us to honor its epic length with some extended conversation of our own. There is plenty to discuss in the incredible new film from Denis Villeneuve so join us for an in-depth journey as we explore the film's emotional and philosophical impact on us.

We've reached the penultimate episode of book-to-movie month. This week we're tackling the Francis Ford Coppola adaptation of S.E. Hinton's classic novel, The Outsiders. This film's cast list reads like a who's who of eventual Hollywood stars, and though the plot is a familiar one it is no less moving. We get into the film's themes and try our best to "stay gold" throughout.

It's week three of our book-to-movie series here in September and in this episode we are discussing the 2012 David O. Russell adaptation of Matthew Quick's hit novel. Silver Linings Playbook offers us a peak into lives we don't often see on a Hollywood screen, and particularly not in a way that results in romance. We have a great time discussing how these relationships make us feel and what we might learn from them.

IT just so happens that a particular box office smash of a horror film is opening during our book-to-movie month and IT fits our theme perfectly. So here we are, after having forced Patrick to watch movie in his least favorite genre, discussing the new 2017 adaptation of Stephen King's classic scary clown novel. We try to do IT justice as we talk about ITs scares, ITs character depth, and ITs themes. We hope you enjoy... IT.

It's week two of class in our book-to-movie month, and this episode we are discussing a film we both have an extreme affection for. Stephen Chbosky’s incredible story, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, is so much more than just another teenage coming-of-age tale. We get deep, raw, and emotional as we talk about the movie and how we relate to its characters. It's a special conversation and one we'd love for you to be a part of it by sharing your Connecting Point in our Facebook group after you listen.

We celebrate the kick-off of football season by discussing Rudy, our August Donor Pick. This film provided us with a great opportunity to debate whether made-up content in a biopic can affect our level of inspiration. We also spend plenty of time gushing about all of the reasons Rudy is one of our favorite football movies.

This is a re-release of an episode that was recorded for the now defunct podcast Feelin' Film Plus. We had a conversation about the first season of the anime Tokyo Ghoul and wanted it to be available for you. The show presents a world in which humans must co-exist with a race of human-like creatures who require flesh for sustenance. As you can imagine there are plenty of ethical questions to discuss and we do our best to consider them justly.
