Minisode 055: A Private War & Interview with Matthew Heineman

A Private War serves as an incredible testament to the legacy of celebrated war correspondent Marie Colvin, but also pays respect to her by re-telling the stories she so passionately dedicated her life to sharing with the world. It takes Colvin’s words off the page and lets us experience just why her work was so important, making this one of 2018’s most essential films. In this special minisode, Aaron interviews Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award winning director Matthew Heineman about his first narrative feature film, followed by a discussion with Feelin’ Film contributor Don Shanahan.

Minisode 054: The Monster Squad

Thanks to a Patron vote in October, we take on THE MONSTER SQUAD, a 1987 film that attempts to pay a loving homage to the classic Universal Studios monsters, while altering their designs just enough to avoid infringing on any copyrights. This is a film that oozes geek-love for its subject matter and we thoroughly enjoy discussing why that is.

Minisode 051: Searching

Searching is an incredible combination of innovative filmmaking, anxiety-inducing thrills, emotionally complex characters, and relevant commentary on the internet as both a danger and potential tool for good. Aaron and Don were both floored by writer/director Aneesh Chaganty’s debut feature film and John Cho’s performance in it, so they sat down for a conversation about what makes the film so special.

Minisode 048: Eighth Grade

Aaron and Don from Every Movie Has a Lesson get together for a chat about rookie director Bo Burnham’s new feature film Eighth Grade. The film is currently generating a lot of buzz and most everyone who has seen this darling indie has loved it – us included. The film stars Elsie Fisher as thirteen-year-old Kayla and follows her as she endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence while making her way through the last week of middle school — the end of her thus far disastrous eighth-grade year. Director/Writer Bo Burnham is most known for his comedy so humor was definitely a big part of the film, but it has an amazing amount of heart and life lessons (Don’s favorite) for us to discuss, as well.

It’s donor pick time, and it looks like we were too fast for our own good, seeing as how we sped right past June and are bringing you that pick a few days into July. Thanks for being forgiving and we hope you enjoy this conversation as much as we do. We’re talking Rush, Ron Howard’s 2013 biopic about the Formula One racing rival between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
