TFR 97: The Life Aquatic with Al and Austin

Hello! After a lengthy hiatus, The Film Room Podcast is back and here to stay! This time we talk about a rarity: a film we’re divided on! Al must defend one of his favorite movies, and Austin must state his case against it. Either direction, we do what we do best: pick it apart and see what makes it tick! Please enjoy our return!

TFR 95: Rogue Wonderful W/Guest Paul Andolina

I am one with the Force, the Force is with me, I am one with the Force, the Force is with me…

Welcome, Star Wars fans! We said we weren’t going to do a full episode on Rogue One, but well… we lied! Actually, this one is a much welcome Patreon request from Paul Adolina, who is also our guest!

So here we talk what makes Rogue One so special, namely that it’s a Star Wars movie with all the war movie tropes put in! All new characters (along with a few familiar faces), and a great story that was only hinted at in the main trilogy!

Come join us as we explore the most unique Star Wars film to date!

TFR 94: WooOO-oo

Who remembers when they made movies from cartoons? Well, I mean they still do, but with the actual resources from the cartoon? We do! In that spirit, it’s about time we did couple! This week we talk The Jetsons Movie and Ducktales: Treasure of the Lost Lamp!

Both with original casts (with one GLARING exception), both lead by show creators, but only one theatrical, and it’s not the preferred one. Which is which? Well listen in to find out! Meanwhile, we’re gonna listen to that sweet, sweet theme song on repeat. You know the one.
Dun-DUN-dun-DUN-dun-DUNduhduhDUN

(Not to mention only one of these films has a sweet poster drawn by the legendary Drew Struzan)

TFR 93: Steven of All Trades (w/Guest Shaun Higgins)

Hello, all! Say, it’s been a while since we’ve done a director retrospective, hasn’t it? It’s a big job, so we brought in mega Soderbergh fan Shaun Higgins to help us! (..okay, he suggested it and we agreed we were sorely lacking on Soderbergh coverage.)

Join us as we talk every experiment Soderbergh has done from The Girlfriend Experience to the Oceans films to The Informant! to Traffic to etc, etc. Each film may as well be its own genre of movie as different from one another as they are! So strap in as we explore the career of a true journeyman!

TFR 92: That’s Problematic

Welcome!

This week we decided to follow up on Al’s article on how to deal with problematic art with a full-on episode. It’s a big topic and we absolutely can’t cover everything, but we can certainly take a bite out of the issue. Feel free to chime in with your thoughts via Twitter or Facebook.

Now please enjoy this completely unrelated picture of Woody Allen at the beginning of Annie Hall.
