For October’s Donor Pick Episode we’re discussing Wes Craven’s masterpiece that revived the slasher genre in the 90’s. That’s right, it’s the iconic Scream, with all its self-awareness, gore, and that incredible opening scene. We talk about just how great Craven really was, as well a conversation about whether or not horror movies turn people violent. Enjoy this special Halloween minisode.
Aaron & Patch are joined by That Guy Named John from the About to Review Podcast for this September Donor Pick Minisode. We talk Watchmen, Zack Snyder’s epic 2009 cinematic adaptation of the 1980’s comic written by Alan Moore, and much like the film tackle a lot of content in a short period of time. Enjoy, and be sure to check out John’s awesome podcast and follow him on social media.
Sometimes you’ve just gotta talk it out. Emmanuel Noisette of Eman’s Movie Reviews joins Aaron for an exploratory, therapeutic, cathartic, and hopefully insightful conversation about the many possible interpretations of Darren Aronofsky’s latest film.
IT just so happens that a particular box office smash of a horror film is opening during our book-to-movie month and IT fits our theme perfectly. So here we are, after having forced Patrick to watch movie in his least favorite genre, discussing the new 2017 adaptation of Stephen King’s classic scary clown novel. We try to do IT justice as we talk about ITs scares, ITs character depth, and ITs themes. We hope you enjoy… IT.
We celebrate the kick-off of football season by discussing Rudy, our August Donor Pick. This film provided us with a great opportunity to debate whether made-up content in a biopic can affect our level of inspiration. We also spend plenty of time gushing about all of the reasons Rudy is one of our favorite football movies.
July’s Donor Pick Episode is here and FF contributor Steve Clifton joins us to talk about a movie he loves. This quirky romantic time travel film offers us a chance to talk about how nostalgia affects our lives and much more. Our listeners picked a good one and we have a great conversation about it.
(SPOILER-FREE FIRST 17 MINUTES) Don Shanahan (Every Movie Has a Lesson) and Emmanuel Noisette (E-man’s Movie Reviews) join Aaron to discuss Kathryn Bigelow’s intense new film about the 1967 Detroit riots and Algiers Motel incident.
June’s Donor Pick episode is finally here, just in time for August. Our patrons had to choose between five different 90’s horror movies and somehow this Robert Rodriguez sci-fi joint came out on top. We had a surprisingly good time revisiting the film and that results in a very fun conversation.
We are excited to talk about one of Disney’s most timeless tales for May’s Donor Pick episode. Featuring perhaps the best soundtrack of any animated feature film and a surprisingly tragic story, The Lion King brings out our emotions like none other. We dive into its themes of family and manipulation, as well as discuss its fantastic cast of characters. And maybe, just maybe we’ll sing.
For our April Donor Pick, our Patreon supporters chose from a list of films and by a wide margin picked this stunning sci-fi directorial debut from 2015 – Ex Machina. This film is ripe with ideas for contemplation and conversation so we brought in guest host Emmanuel Noisette of Eman’s Movie Reviews to help us dissect Alex Garland’s masterpiece. We cover a lot of ground in this minisode so get comfortable, put your thinking cap on, and enjoy.
