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.

Our final week of Kubrick Month has arrived and we wrap things up by having a conversation about the movie that gave us the great director's take on the Vietnam War. Full Metal Jacket is extremely tense, often funny, and incredibly shot, but it is more than just a war movie. It's also a commentary about humanity and with that provides us plenty to talk through. It's been an awesome month of celebrating Stanley Kubrick and we're glad to go out with a bang.

Every once in a great while a film comes along with science fiction ideas that are fresh and reinvigorating to the genre. Director Neill Blomkamp's feature film, District 9, is just that, blending science fiction, satire, and social commentary with incredible visuals and technology to give us something wholly original. Join us for this discussion of the January Donor Pick episode, and one of our favorite sci-fi films of all-time. And remember #PrawnLivesMatter.

It's Week 3 of Kubrick Month and we turn our attention to the director's version of comedy. Dark, satirical comedy as it may be. Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb isn't just a movie with one of the longest titles in cinema history, but is a masterful look at how nuclear weapons have shaped the world, and the potential dangers that come with them. For the first time this month we aren't left scratching our heads and trying to figure out what the film means. Enjoy this conversation about another classic from Stanley Kubrick.

Welcome, listeners new and old, to the first episode of our new series "Connecting With Classics." In this initial episode, Aaron & Don discuss the #77 film on AFI's Top 100 10th Anniversary list, and one which is closely connected to current new release The Post. If All the President's Men isn't the best journalism film ever made, it's certainly in the conversation. Join the guys for some history, some lessons, and as always some emotional connection.

One of the goals for "Connecting With Classics" is listener participation. We will be hosting prize drawings for podcast swag and more at the end of each calendar year. Entries into the drawing can be earned for every episode by watching the film and posting your own review or thoughts about the podcast episode in the comments section of the episode announcement post in our Feelin' Film Facebook Discussion Group. For listeners who do not wish to be a part of the discussion group, emailing reviews to feelinfilm@gmail.com will also be accepted.

This week we continue Kubrick Month by looking at the director's science fiction masterpiece. Is 2001: A Space Odyssey just an artistic marvel or is it also a genuinely entertaining story? We discuss the possibilities while talking plenty about HAL-9000 and Kubrick's deliberately ambiguous ending. Join us for this conversation and let us know what you think about the film, theories and all.

We’ve gotten together to talk about Steven Spielberg’s newest film, The Post, a dramatization of the Washington Post's publication of the Pentagon Papers in 1971, which exposed government secrets and lies about the Vietnam War. With a cast led by superstars Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, this story of unbiased journalism is extremely relevant and sure to land numerous Oscar nominations.
