We tackle Joss Whedon’s famous secretly filmed modern adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic comedy. With dual romances, plenty of manipulation and deception, and a wealth of hilarity this fantastic cast gives us an enjoyable translation of The Bard’s work while speaking it word for word. Now away with haste and treat thine ears to the divine ramblings of two fools!
We discuss this month’s Disney live-action remake,the second out of three to be released in a 3.5 month window this spring/summer and out of four overall this year. Is Disney putting out quality content here that has a potential to win fan hearts, or is this just another shameless cash grab that capitalizes on nostalgia? Hear our positives, negatives, and recommendations for what might have made this work even better in this great conversation.
Disney’s new live-action remake of ALADDIN is neither dumpster fire nor exceptional, instead resting squarely in “just okay” territory.

You’re probably curious why this random non-movie related episode title showed up in our podcast feed. Well, a few of us here at Feelin’ Film are pretty big fans of this show, and this week’s episode was such a big deal that we were bursting to talk about it. And this is the result of that desire. This may just be a one-off episode. We really aren’t sure right now, but regardless it’s us reacting to “The Long Night”, a.k.a. The Battle of Winterfell, and we hope you’ll enjoy the conversation.
We’re not podcasting in the rain this week, but we’re definitely happy again to be chatting about one of Aaron’s favorite films in celebration of both Spring and his birthday. We can’t speak for Don Lockwood, but we assure you that this conversation will be conducted with dignity… always dignity… and hopefully it will put a little smile on your face and even help you appreciate this lovely musical even more.
