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.

For our third film in this year's Director Battle Month series, our Facebook group chose a Coen Bros. gem that many consider a masterpiece, but leaves others full of anger. We dig in to themes of choice and consequence, as well as chance and fate, for this neo-western conservation.

This week's second film in our 2019 Director Battle Month takes us on a fantastical adventure through the Republic of Zubrowka. We take some time out to marvel at the artistic genius of Wes Anderson before digging into the themes of the film that stem from the wonderful relationship between its two protagonists. Like the film itself, we hope this episode will largely make you smile, as our conversation did for us.

This week we are a little faster than usual, and a lot more furious as we discuss the first spin-off in our beloved Fast and Furious franchise. Truth be told this is one of the least positive episodes of our show, as this film we were so very looking forward to just did not work for us, but we keep that positive honesty and talk about the things we did like, as well.

For the first film of this August's Director Battle Month, our listeners chose a Hitchcock classic for us to discuss. We chat about some of the history surrounding the making of this thriller and try to figure out why we have so much empathy for the "bad guys".

Once upon a time on Feelin' Film, we gathered to discuss a new Quentin Tarantino film that shocked us not with its violence and exploitative nature, but with its sentimentality and unique marriage of fictional story with alternate history.

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!

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.
