  • 0

While the last episode was all about Chris & Alan's favorite films of 2011, this episode asks them to gaze into their crystal ball and make predictions on this year's Academy Awards. With Chris in his designer tuxedo and Alan in his favorite jeans, the boys go through each of the Oscar categories, talk through the nominees, and make their choice on who they think will walk away with a little golden statue in late February. It's Oscar prediction time! Will Chris swear off all movies forever if "Moneyball" sweeps the awards? Does Alan have his fingers crossed that "Real Steel" creeps into the Best Picture field through some clerical error? And how do you choose a winner from a list of animated short films when you haven't seen any of them? It's all in the name, of course. All this, and more, on Footcandle Films.

  • 0

Chris and Alan had a novel idea... what if they took a look at all of the films they saw in 2011, and then presented their "top five" films of the year? We don't think that has ever been done before! Original or not, the guys present their favorite "Footcandle" films of the year, their favorite "Non-Footcandle" films of the year, and even throw out a couple of their "Least Favorite" (i.e., worst) films of the year. It's a show all about lists and closing out 2011 with a bang on Footcandle Films. Running time: 75 minutes Read More »

Footcandle Films 8: The Guard

  • 0

After some downbeat movies over the last few months, it's time for some laughs. But does "The Guard", starring Brendon Gleeson and Don Cheadle, deliver? Gleeson stars as unconventional Irish police officer Gerry Boyle, quite content with his life and pace of work, while Cheadle plays a straight-laced FBI agent assigned to a drug-smuggling case in Boyle's small town. Sound like the setup for a standard "buddy cop" film, right? Listen to see what Alan and Chris think of this month's film. Plus, in this episode the boys pick through of couple of recent movie-related news items - with a focus on science-fiction as a way of congratulating Chris for his upcoming nuptials. "Footcandle Films" is looking to double your film fix by moving to posting episodes twice a month, so be on the lookout for our next episode in two weeks when we discuss the Best Films of 2011 (as well as some of the worst!).
