For this year’s October Donor Pick, we gave the Patrons a list of vampire movies to choose from. The winner takes us back to the 80’s for a teen horror comedy spin on blood suckers that helped to shape what the sub-genre would look like in the future.
This week begins a stretch of episodes celebrating man’s best friend, in honor of Aaron becoming a first-time puppy parent. We start with the perfect dog film to discuss around Halloween, as it is filled with homage to classic monster and horror films of the past, but still has a sweetness to it that all pet owners can feel.
This week we wrap up our six-part Batman v Superman event with the most recent solo Superman film. Zack Snyder’s interpretation of the character has unsurprisingly been met with plenty of divisive opinions. But us? We love this movie and we’re here to discuss why.
In this special episode of FF+, Aaron and Patrick interview screenwriter of the “Back to the Future” trilogy, Bob Gale. Bob tells stories about the creation of the franchise and talks about some of the new special features present in the 35th Anniversary “Ultimate Trilogy” set releasing on October 20, 2020, for the first time ever in 4K.
This week on FF+, Caless Davis and Aaron react to the second pair of films from Amazon & Blumhouse’s partnership and also an Oscar-contending courtroom drama biopic from podcast favorite writer/director Aaron Sorkin.
This week on FF+, Caless Davis joins Aaron for reactions to three newly releasing films, two of which are part of a new Amazon/Blumhouse partnership and one that was a hit at 2020’s Sundance Film Festival and offers a unique perspective on the black teenage coming-of-age film.
This week we continue our Batman v Superman celebration by covering the first of three films centering on the blue boy scout himself, beginning with Richard Donner’s 1978 entry that set the tone for what an entire genre of film looks like today. We challenge ourselves to consider both this film’s value as a trend-setter and whether it holds up today.
In this special episode of FF+, Aaron, Caless, Don, and Patrick battle it out against each other by drafting 8 films each from 1999 across a range of different genre categories. This episode was live in our Facebook Discussion Group and members there will vote on who drafted the best overall slate of films from October 5-7.
