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.

For our April Donor Pick, our Patreon supporters chose from a list of films and by a wide margin picked this stunning sci-fi directorial debut from 2015  - Ex Machina. This film is ripe with ideas for contemplation and conversation so we brought in guest host Emmanuel Noisette of Eman's Movie Reviews to help us dissect Alex Garland's masterpiece. We cover a lot of ground in this minisode so get comfortable, put your thinking cap on, and enjoy.

It's that time again to make box office predictions for the Summer Movie Challenge. This yearly competition involves us choosing what we think will be the highest grossing films between May and Labor Day. This year we are joined by our Feelin' Film contributors - Don and Steve. Who will emerge victorious? Listen to hear our picks and find out how you can play along!

 

2017 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 2017 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.

2017 Summer Movie Challenge Scoring:

Scoreboard: http://feelinfilm.com/smc/

  • 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.

This week we are podcasting a quarter-mile at a time with Dominic Toretto’s ever-expanding crew in The Fate of the Furious. Ever since Fast Five this series has been growing farther away from its racing roots and more toward full-blown action. Does the formula still work? Is this still a family we want to be part of? We dig in to to discuss what has made this franchise so successful.

This week we give Bill Paxton one more tribute by talking about his incredible directorial debut and performance in Frailty. This thriller/horror film has deep religious themes and a story that is difficult to watch, but is brilliant in its execution. We dissect the choices made, and how we ultimately view its ambiguous ending, among many other aspects of this truly special movie.

We boldly go where Feelin' Film has not gone before - into the romance zone. This week we're talking about a beloved romantic classic, based on a book by celebrated author Nicholas Sparks, it's The Notebook. Our conversation leads places we didn't expect that it would and we discover a depth to this story that really resonated with us both. It's a week unlike any other so sit back and enjoy the discussion.
