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.

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.

Few movies have had as profound an impact on our thoughts of what it means to be human as Ridley Scott's Blade Runner. We welcome first time guest James Harleman, Blade Runner superfan, to the podcast and spend some time unpacking the film's numerous themes and questions about identity.

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 kick off book-to-movie month with arguably the best summer blockbuster ever made. Jurassic Park is one of those special films that evokes such a sense of awe and wonder that it captures the imaginations of adults and children alike. We talk through some of the present themes and reminisce about our own experiences with this Steven Spielberg masterpiece.

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.

In this episode, we examine a film considered to be a classic but which also has a huge amount of relevance in today’s cultural landscape. Our conversation about the 1957 directorial debut of Sidney Lumet is one we've been excited about for quite a while. It is a film that truly does make us feel many different emotions, and connecting with this one was not a problem. We hope you enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts on why 12 Angry Men is special to you.

This week we're joined by returning special guest Andrew Dyce of Screenrant.com to talk about mutants, mariners, drifters, smokers, and more.

So hop on this sailboat with us as we set out to sea and explore this unique sci-fi piece of film history.

We welcome back the boys from Retro Rewind Podcast this week to have a conversation about a movie that we all have great affection for. TRON: Legacy is undeniably one of the most visually incredible films ever made and has a score by Daft Punk that is universally loved. But is that all, or is there more to this unique story of AI and a humanized digital landscape? Join us as we talk about how this film made us feel and more.

This week we are talking about one of our biggest theater regrets of 2016. This beautiful stop-motion animated picture is magical, fantastical, and has a great story centered around a special family. As much as any movie we've discussed recently, Kubo and the Two Strings brings out the feelings and makes for great conversation.

June's Donor Pick episode is finally here, just in time for August. Our patrons had to choose between five different 90's horror movies and somehow this Robert Rodriguez sci-fi joint came out on top. We had a surprisingly good time revisiting the film and that results in a very fun conversation.

War film? Rescue film? Horror film? Or all three? We tackle Christopher Nolan's latest movie and discuss whether the film's unique narrative structure and immersive sound were positives or negatives. We also try to answer what we think a Christopher Nolan movie is, which is no easy task. Nolan may be our favorite director but Dunkirk was an experience we had to linger on. We hope you enjoy as we talk our way through how the movie made us feel.
