It’s Critic vs Screenwriter. Sometimes … maybe … kinda?

Welcome to A Frame Apart, the movie podcast from divergent perspectives under one roof. We’re your hosts, Ariel Fisher and Bob Barrow. Ariel’s a film critic and freelance journalist, and Bob’s a screenwriter. Each episode, we’ll take a look at two movies that have some sort of connection. Sometimes that connection will be obvious, and others not so much. On A Frame Apart, we aim to provide a variety of perspectives on cinema, not only from the standpoint of professionals on different sides of the camera, but as fans of media, pop culture enthusiasts, and lovers of cinema. We will speak passionately about subjects near and dear to us through film, and expound upon larger issues that permeate our cinematic culture and how we consume media. From horror to comedy, and everything in between, every great film is just a frame apart.

    Episode 107 - Billy Madison VS Patch Adams

    Episode 107 - Billy Madison VS Patch Adams

    We're continuing our back to school programming with a look at starting over as an adult: it's Billy Madison versus Patch Adams! In the grand tradition of comparing two films whether that comparison is obvious or not, these felt like the perfect fit for the season! Listen to us talk about how terribly Billy Madison's aged, the concept of it's never too late, and the joyful treasure that is Robin Wiliams basically playing himself in 1970's flare and a lab coat.

    Next week, Bob eats his darts by checking out his first Hirokazu Kore-eda film with Like Father, Like Son! So tell us, what are some of your favourites from Kore-eda's filmography?

    Episode 106 - Inherit The Wind VS To Kill A Mockingbird

    As the kiddies are heading back to school, we at A Frame Apart decided it was time to talk about the serious hit on reason and human decency society as a whole has taken of late. To do so, we're taking a look at two legends of American cinema: Inherit the Wind VS To Kill a Mockingbird. From the Scopes Trial to Harper Lee's childhood, we're talking about science versus religion, the pitfalls of hiding behind the Bible, the nobility of Atticus Finch, and the importance of teaching our children and all future generations patience, understanding, and humility. All of this and so much more!

    Next week we'll be getting a little sillier! We're still back to school, but as adults. Hey, you're never too old for knowledge! It's Billy Madison VS Patch Adams, two films that couldn't be more tonally opposite that still manage to touch on what it feels like to go back and start from scratch.

I came for the jokes....

... about my favourite human body part but I stayed for the intelligent insightful takes about film and sometimes TV. Ariel and Bob talk a lot about horror and superhero films, which are genres that have forever taken a beating. But they remind me not to be snobby and that there's value in all of cinema. They also delve into art house classics and sees the fun side of the those hallowed works. Awesome stuff!

I love this podcast. The hosts are super engaging, unpretentious, and knowledgeable as hell. I also like that they cover big blockbusters and classics, as well as obscure stuff
