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.

Episode 135: Platoon

In honor of Veterans Day, we discuss Oliver Stone’s 1986 Best Picture winner, perhaps the most authentic fictional depiction of boots on the ground life in the Vietnam War and a harrowing look at battles both external and internal that forever changed the men who fought them. This is a hard film to watch, but it offers a lot of material for a great discussion. Join us for ours.

Episode 134: Bohemian Rhapsody

This week, Patrick is joined by M.J. Smith of the Reel Perspective Podcast to discuss the Freddie Mercury/Queen biopic starring Rami Malek. Did the film rock them and have them screaming “Mamma Mia”, or it just another one that bites the dust? The two have a wonderful conversation about this energetic, entertaining film.

Episode 133: Upgrade

To celebrate Halloween, we’re covering this 2018 sci-fi action thriller with horror elements to it. We love a good exploration of how humans interact with new technology and Leigh Whannell’s UPGRADE gives us not only plenty to ponder but an entertaining, kick-ass delivery system for its big ideas. This is a fun conversation and one that had us asking ourselves some tough questions. Enjoy!

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.

Episode 131: First Man

This week we are talking about one of our most anticipated films of the year and we are so thrilled that it did not disappoint. We both resonated with Damien Chazelle’s telling of Neil Armstrong’s story and discuss why the blending of drama and technically brilliant action sequences worked perfectly for us.

Episode 130: A Star is Born

This week, Feelin’ Film contributor Jeremy Calcara joins us to discuss the a tale as old as time. No, not BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, but rather the fifth iteration of A STAR IS BORN. This beautifully tragic musical journey is one full of emotions that we enjoyed unpacking together and we hope that you enjoy as well.

Episode 129: Hearts Beat Loud

It’s feeling like music appreciation week around Feelin’ Film and as part of that we are discussing Brett Haley’s heartwarming new film that has become one of our favorites of 2018. We are big fans of its simple, subtle, completely satisfying storytelling and wonderful father/daughter and romantic relationships. Oh, and the music is incredible, too. Get ready to hear us gush.
