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 approached TOY STORY 4 with apprehension, counting ourselves among those that considered Pixar's trilogy to be one of the best ever made and already "perfect". In this episode, Caless Davis joins us to discuss the new end of the TOY STORY franchise. We talk through our concerns and share what impacted us about Woody and the gang's latest chapter.

We tackle Joss Whedon's famous secretly filmed modern adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic comedy. With dual romances, plenty of manipulation and deception, and a wealth of hilarity this fantastic cast gives us an enjoyable translation of The Bard's work while speaking it word for word. Now away with haste and treat thine ears to the divine ramblings of two fools!

This week's episode is a Premium Pick, which you can learn more about on our website here: http://feelinfilm.com/premium-picks/

What better film to kick off the summer than a coming-of-age tale about a boy whisked away for a summer experience that challenges and changes him forever? We're excited to talk through one of our favorites in the genre this week - a film with charming performances, poignant themes, and lots of fun to be had.

This week it's time to play ball! We decided to celebrate baseball season by giving our Patrons five films about America's pastime to vote on. Their choice was a good one and allows us to reminisce about our childhoods and think back to summers that may not be experienced by kids in the same way ever again. This film is full of memorable moments and we had a joy discussing it together for May's Donor Pick Episode.

We discuss this month’s Disney live-action remake,the second out of three to be released in a 3.5 month window this spring/summer and out of four overall this year. Is Disney putting out quality content here that has a potential to win fan hearts, or is this just another shameless cash grab that capitalizes on nostalgia? Hear our positives, negatives, and recommendations for what might have made this work even better in this great conversation.

This week we're catching up with a film from 2017 that was got over-shadowed by a few other big releases during the Christmas season, but that nonetheless has a surprising amount of heart and plenty for us to talk about. That's right, the Transformers franchise reboot is off to a good start with this new solo entry from LAIKA Studio's own Travis Knight.

“What’s in a name?” One of our favorite topics to discuss is the exploration of character identity and this film offers us plenty of opportunity to do so. We celebrate Mother's Day with one of the best coming-of-age films of the decade. It is a joy to talk through the relationships in Lady Bird's life and the beautiful love letter to Sacramento that first-time Director Greta Gerwig brings to the screen.

What better time than Cinco de Mayo than to celebrate one of the most exciting action films of the 90's directed by a man who often shoots in Mexico and starring a Spanish actor and Mexican-American starlet. This film oozes style and kicks major ass, but has moments of poignancy and tenderness that elevate it above many similar films. We have a great conversation about what makes this particular movie special and we hope you'll enjoy it.

You're probably curious why this random non-movie related episode title showed up in our podcast feed. Well, a few of us here at Feelin’ Film are pretty big fans of this show, and this week’s episode was such a big deal that we were bursting to talk about it. And this is the result of that desire. This may just be a one-off episode. We really aren’t sure right now, but regardless it’s us reacting to “The Long Night”, a.k.a. The Battle of Winterfell, and we hope you’ll enjoy the conversation.

We break down our reaction to this once-in-generation event, while also taking a look back at the past and contemplating the future.

This month's donor pick theme was comic book/graphic novel films not part of the Marvel or DC universes and our listeners still managed to get Captain America in the mix. We discuss this sci-fi, horror, dystopian, post-apocalyptic film with deep themes and kick-ass action and have a great time doing it.

For this special minisode, we are joined by Scott Conroy, the writer and creator of the new scripted podcast, BLACKOUT, which is a story centered around the town of Berlin, New Hampshire in the midst of a citywide blackout and the fallout that comes from it. It’s narrated by and stars Oscar award winner Rami Malek as Simon Itani, the local DJ. It’s got the flavor of shows like LOST and THE WALKING DEAD, so if you are a fan of those, you’ll want to check it out. It’s 8 total episodes, 7 of which have released as of this conversation, and available via Apple Podcast. We interview Scott about how he got into script writing, where his idea came from, how Rami Malek got involved, and more. You can listen to BLACKOUT on Apple Podcasts now (see link below).
