Feelin' Film Podcast

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.

They're ninjas. They're mutants! Technically, they're turtles. And they're teenagers. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returned to the big screen with a bang in 2014 and this week Patrick & Aaron reminisce about this newest version of a beloved childhood cartoon. Though highly criticized, the guys find quite a bit to be excited about in the turtles' latest adventure.

Ever played fantasy sports? Love movies? Like winning?

If one or all of these pertain to you, then you are gonna love Fantasy Movie League. FML is a game where each week you spend your budget to select up to 8 films that will feature at your personal cinema. Earnings are then calculated based on actual box office numbers and a leaderboard shows you where you stand in the group.

We love competition and so this game is something we've been enjoying for a while now. We'd like to invite you to join and play along with us! The first summer movie season starts next week so this is the perfect time to sign up and get onboard.

Don't worry if you have trouble remembering because FML will email you results once a week and you can quickly login, make your next picks, and be done.

Come show us what you've got!

This year we've decided to join in the popular 2016 Summer Movie Challenge. We'll be competing both individually and as a team against Richard and David, the hosts of Popcorn Theology

 

2016 Summer Movie Challenge Rules

The rules for the game come from TimeTravelReview’s Summer Movie Pool:

 

The object is to pick the films that you think will be the top-ten grossing films of the summer, in order of box-office performance. As I’ve said, that means only films released from May 1st 2016 to the Labor Day weekend, counting only the money those films make domestically (US and Canada) in that period. In other words films from March or April might still be making money after May 1st, but they don’t count; films released from May on could start racking up foreign B.O., but that doesn’t count; films released from May on could still be making money into September, but that doesn’t count either. Box Office numbers are generally available late Monday or Tuesday after the weekend closes. For the last seven or so years, I have been using box office numbers from Yahoo Box Office which gets their numbers in turn from Box Office Mojo. So what you will be doing is figuring out what 10 films will make the most money, and putting them in order of what you think they will gross at the box office. BUT, in addition to your top 10, you get to pick 3 “Dark Horses”- films you think *might* make it, but that you are not confident enough about to put into the top 10 proper.

2016 Summer Movie Challenge Scoring:

Scoreboard: http://bit.ly/1OgIl3t

  • Getting number 1 or number 10 dead-on gets you 13 points (each).

The rest of the scoring goes like this:

  • 10 points for numbers 2-9 dead-on
  • 7 points if your pick was only one spot away from where it ended up
  • 5 points if it was two spots away
  • 3 points if your pick is anywhere in the Top 10
  • 1 point for each dark horse that makes it into the Top 10

The scoring is tabulated so that you get the SINGLE HIGHEST point value for each pick- that is, if you get number ten right, you don’t get 13+3, you only get 13.

Guns N' Roses said it best, "I don't need your Civil War..." But alas, civil wars do happen, and this week we are bringing you two recommendations of films set during such a conflict. One is a scary look at the life of a child soldier in a fictional West African civil war and the other is a lesser known 90's film that is more of a drama set against the backdrop of the American Civil War.

Join us for a deep dive into the vibrant and fantastical world of Neverland. In this "second chance" episode we discuss how some films are better seen through the eyes of a child, and how adults can consciously work to have the same experience. There is much to explore in any film based on the wonderful story of Peter Pan so sprinkle some fairy dust and come along for the flight.
