Podcast: Reel World Theology Guest: Patch Synopsis:We grab the reigns of nostalgia and dare not let go! Steven Spielberg adapts Ernest Cline’s love letter to 80’s pop-culture in a big budget, popcorn-shoveling spectacle. How does it translate from the book? Is it ok that we are making a movie that is almost completely references to other things? We talk about all the things that make us who we are and what happens when you try to tell stories where the virtual is more interesting than the real.
Podcast: Popcorn Theology Guests: Aaron and Patch Synopsis:This week, David and guest host James Harleman (of Cinemagogue cine-fame) are joined by Aaron and Patrick of the Feelin’ Film Podcast to talk about La La Land. In this surprisingly long episode, we discussed the mixed reactions to this movie, contagious passion, traditionalism vs. revolution, heartbreak and regret, and more.
Podcast: Reel World Theology Guest: Aaron Synopsis:When it comes to movies that strike right at the heart, there are few 2017 movies that resonate like The Florida Project. Set in the shadow of “the happiest place on earth,” this movie reminds us that America isn’t always the land of opportunity. We discuss what about this film hit us so hard and we can ultimately learn from examining the lives of those who are often overlooked.
Podcast: Reel World Theology Guest: Aaron Synopsis:We blend the old with the new by talking about a sci-fi classic being continued with a new, but familiar, vision. We have some die-hard Blade Runner fans on to talk about the impact of the original and how it shaped their expectations going into the long-awaited sequel. Does it live up to expectations? Did we even need a sequel? We talk about the questions and stylings of the latest sci-fi epic from Denis Villeneuve.
Podcast: Reel World Rewind Guest: Aaron Synopsis: Blaine and Shannon are joined by Aaron White of Feelin’ Film to discuss Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. They talk about how the film addresses issues of humanity, memory, and perception.
Podcast: Reel World Theology Guests: Aaron and Jeremy Synopsis: One of the best things about doing this podcast is finding films you truly connect with that maybe didn’t have huge theatrical runs or huge opening weekends but are still among the year’s best. The Big Sick was just that. Hitting two genres we rarely get to cover (comedy and romance), the movie has both laughs and heart. What can we take away from this one? Well, it only seems appropriate to have some of the guys from Feelin’ Film on this one.
Podcast: Reel World Theology Guest: Aaron Synopsis: Where’s Fizz? When it comes to this episode, he’s a ghost… Ok, apologies. JR Forasteros and Aaron White had the opportunity to see A Ghost Story early and JR had the opportunity to sit down with writer and director David Lowery to talk about his film. So, this will definitely be a little different than you’re used to, but just as worth your time! Enjoy.
