We’re sticking with the theme of impersonators cashing fraudulent checks this week as we shift our attention from Matt Damon to the fist of two films starring the great Leonardo DiCaprio. This wild and nearly unbelievable true story of Frank Abagnale Jr. and his eventual capture by the FBI is one of the most joyful crime capers you’ll ever see.
For this week’s FF+, Don Shanahan (Chicago Indie Critics) of Every Movie Has a Lesson and 25YL joins Aaron to share thoughts on an award-winning documentarian’s new film and the latest Disney+ release. Marc Morin (Seattle Film Critics Society) of TwoOhSix also joins Aaron to discuss Ethan Hawke’s new indie picture and the sequel to one of last decade’s greatest zombie films.
This week Caless Davis is back on the show to talk about one of his favorite films. Arguably Matt Damon’s best performance is given in this twisty thriller about identity theft set in 1950s Italy and its commentary on class offers plenty for us to discuss.
Aaron and Patrick chat about an upcoming documentary which tells the story of how the Tony Hawk video game series came to be, while also highlighting the history of skateboarding as a sport and the career of the great Tony Hawk.
This week we’re shipping up to Boston for a conversation about a film that launched the careers of two eventual superstars. Not a lot of plot happens here, but the authenticity on display plus the relationships and feelings explored offer us plenty of material for rich thematic discussion.
In this week’s episode we discuss one of our favorite films (based on one of our favorite books) and dig into what makes this science-heavy space survival story so entertaining while also being so emotionally provocative.
In the narrowest of victories during July’s Donor Pick voting on Patreon, “Mean Girls” emerged victorious over “Clueless” to get the Feelin’ Film treatment. Luckily for us, there is some depth to be mined from this classic and quotable high school comedy.
It’s the last ride in our Fast and Furious summer as we discuss the most emotional film in the franchise. With multiple scenes getting us teary-eyed and possibly more action than any other entry, this total package was a joy to revisit and ends our series of episodes on a high.
