S07 E06 - A Christmas Story and Magic in the Margins

On this Christmas episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast: As we do every year, we take a look at a Christmas classic.

S07 E05 - The Rise of Skywalker and Choosing Our Family

On this episode of the Reel World Theology podcast: What more appropriate way to end an up and down 2019 than with what will likely be one of the most disagreed upon films of the year, The Rise of Skywalker. Leve it to Star Wars, their fans, and the critics to create a whirlwind of expectations that couldn't possibly be met. However, Where did we land on the film? Was it good? Bad? Somewhere in the middle? What about that one decision about Rey? Why did it connect with some audiences and not others? How did our enjoyment (or not) of The Last Jedi directly affect this one? Boy, do we have opinions! Enjoy.

S07 E04 - A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and Seeing Humanity

On this episode of the Reel World Theology podcast: In a world of division and social media outrage, it is occasionally nice to have a refreshing voice reminding us of the kinder side of humanity. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood longs to remind audiences to be their best selves and to also never forget the power that one life, earnestly lived, can impact countless others. We discuss how the film holds up to the documentary that came out last year and give some hot takes on Tom Hanks as our Mr. Rogers stand-in. Enjoy!

S07 E03 - Zombieland: Double Tap and Sequel Necessity

On this episode of the Reel World Theology podcast: While maybe not an awards contender in 2019, we talk about a movie that we have been anticipating for nearly a decade, a Zombieland sequel. Is it fun? Was it worth the wait? Does it really have anything to say? When do we need sequels? We discuss. Enjoy!

S07 E02 - Ad Astra and a Cosmic Letdown

On this episode of the Reel World Theology podcast:We continue the latest season of the show talking about one of the most discussed movies that came out during our break, Ad Astra. This movie had a lot going for it, from the cast to a trailer that ticked a lot of sci-fi fan boxes. It also was pushed back to a September release, which is usually a bad sign. Where did this film land for us? Why do we think that some people thought this was a snooze-fest while others thought it was one of the year's better offerings? We discuss!

S07 E01 - Joker and the Final Joke

On this episode of the Reel World Theology podcast:There has been a lot of conversation (and worry) about the effect that the new Joker film could have on our culture. While this may be another case of over-reaction to a movie that people hadn't yet seen, it remains a divisive film critically. What is the film saying, if anything? There was always a worry about a movie that explored the Joker's past only spoiling the character but does the film actually give us the best of both worlds? We explore both the film and what the ending means for viewers and critics, alike.

Reel World: Rewind #041 – Sunshine

On this episode of Reel World: Rewind -Reel World staff members Josh Crabb and Blake Collier are discussing Danny Boyle's 2007 thought-provoking Sci-Fi movie,Sunshine. A portentous movie about a not-so-implausible future where the sun is dying, Boyle's movie ponders transcendence, spirituality, death, and duty. Blake and Josh reflect on some of the quieter moments of the movie but also address the criticisms of the final third and how it may not be as disjointed and abrupt as people have made it out to be. It's a contemplative episode of Rewind that, unlike the sun, is not too hot to handle.
