Do you enjoy listening to people talk about films? What about those films that may not show up at the local multiplex but are instead showing at the smaller specialty theater across town? Then "Footcandle Films" may be the show for you. Each month, the hosts discuss and review one "smaller" film in-depth, discuss upcoming film news, and give recommendations on films that you may not be aware of, ones that you haven't remembered in a while, or ones that are worth your time checking out. And all the while, the conversation never gets too "high-brow" or pretentious. Just two guys who enjoy talking about movies. Your Hosts: Alan Jackson and Chris Frye, founders of the Footcandle Film Society.

    Avatar The Way of Empire of Light Water

    After a fourteen-year hiatus director, James Cameron is back with his new film AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER. Alan & Chris discuss the latest happenings on the planet (or is it a moon?) of Pandora before returning to Earth to visit a really cool movie theater in Sam Mendes' EMPIRE OF LIGHT starring Olivia Colman. Next on this episode's menu is a round of Trailer Tapas where we play clips from upcoming movies and gauge our excitement about the films. Last, but certainly not least, we give recommendations of movies to consider either revisiting or watching for the first time.

    Babylon The Whale

    Babylon The Whale

    Damien Chazelle's BABYLON and Darren Aronofsky's THE WHALE. With both films being released near the close of 2022 hopes of little golden statues were likely dancing in the heads of the studios. Alan & Chris review both releases as well as give their Top 5 Films of 2022. If you're looking for the traditional segments of movie news & recommendations - fear not! We were running long with so much to discuss but they'll return on our next episode.

    The Bones and All Menu

    The Bones and All Menu

    With two films that center around food and eating did we miss an opportunity by not discussing them in a special Thanksgiving episode? Considering the movies reviewed are BONES & ALL and THE MENU it might be better that we waited until after the holiday. Also on this episode are bits of cinematic news and recommendations of films that might not be on your radar that you should check out.

    Wakanda Breaking Weird

    Wakanda Breaking Weird

    BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER has hit cineplexes nationwide. Our hosts share their thoughts and then opt for two additional reviews due to the dearth of silver-screen news they were able to find online. Fear not - we'll try and dig up some news for our next installment. Instead, we discuss the indie dramatic thriller BREAKING starring John Boyega and the well..weird biopic spoof WEIRD: THE AL YANKOVIC STORY. Closing out the episode each host recommends a film to check out for the first time or revisit.
