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.

We are excited to say with certainty that we will be releasing episodes weekly. You can now expect a new episode every Monday morning, freshly recorded and ready for your morning commute. So if you haven't subscribed already in iTunes or your podcast app, make sure you do so that you don't miss an episode!

Our episode type will vary some and we've updated our About section to reflect the various theme of podcast you will see from us (also posted below). What you can count on, though, is that every episode we publish focuses primarily on the positive aspects of the film and our emotional response to it.

We're looking forward to where this journey takes us and hope you'll come along for the ride.

Reel Reactions - Here we will talk about our reactions to a movie currently in theaters.

Second Chance - On these episodes, we will tackle a film that received a lot of criticism and generally has a very low RT/Metacritic score, outlining why the film is worth seeing and what is redeemable about it.

Quick Picks - These spoiler-free episodes will revolve around one film selected by each host, usually available via streaming or rental.

Join us for a conversation about the highly under-marketed and under-appreciated new film from director Jeff Nichols. We discuss the importance of plot, emotional storytelling, and more about this old school science fiction mystery.

On this inaugural episode, Aaron and Patrick lay out the vision for Feelin' Film and explain why we should be looking for the good in movies. They discuss Batman v Superman at length and don't shy away from addressing some of the film's criticisms, but try to direct the focus to what the film gets right.
