Episode 145: Titanic

So, it’s week 3 of our James Cameron Director Month series, and with it comes a film of unsinkable size. Coming in at 3 hours and 15 minutes, and with a $200 million dollar budget, Titanic  set out to tell the story of one of the biggest tragic events in history. We welcome Seattle-based blogger, writer, and film critic, Erynne Hundley to the show for this discussion where we find out if this epic historical romance really does make our hearts go on, or if our opinion of the film sunk over the years.

FF+ Untouchable, Buffalo Boys & Captain Marvel Hype

In this week’s episode of FF+ we discuss two newly releasing films from first-time directors – a charming Indonesian action adventure Western and a documentary that explores the highly controversial topic of sexual crimes, from the perspective of both victims and convicted offenders, and offers an in-depth look at the legal and social system’s harsh treatment of sexual offenders in the U.S. We also discuss our expectations/hype level for Captain Marvel and lay out our plan for TV/series watching in 2019.

Episode 143: The Abyss

For the second week in a row we go underwater, this time to kick-off our Director Month series on the films of James Cameron. Much has been said about the production problems this film faced and we get into those, but also have a deep discussion about the incredible character development that drives this sci-fi thriller along. Don’t worry, we also have thoughts on the film’s controversial ending, too.

Episode 142: Aquaman

Hail to the King… of the box office, at least. James Wan’s undersea adventure fantasy film is earning gobs of cash and has enormous fan support for its unique and bombastic storytelling style. We have our good friend Andrew B. Dyce from ScreenRant.com join us once again to discuss the new DC Extended Universe entry while using as many water puns as we can fit in. An epic film deserves an epic conversation and we think this is one you’ll enjoy.

Episode 141: Mary Poppins Returns

December and movie musicals go together like peanut butter and jelly. Did this long-awaited sequel satiate our hunger for enjoyable song and dance? We dig into Rob Marshall’s follow-up to the Disney classic and discuss one of our favorite topics, intertextuality, and whether MARY POPPINS RETURNS is really more of a sequel or remake.

Episode 140: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Let’s cut to the chase – this week we get to discuss our favorite animated film of 2018. Into the Spider-Verse isn’t just the ultimate Spider-man, it’s amazing, spectacular, and astonishing too, and provides us ample material to cover like sympathetic villains, the idea that everyone can be a superhero, and what a playground for telling diverse stories can look like going forward.
