Footcandle Films

Hosted ByChris Frye & Alan Jackson

Do you like 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.

No Time to Halloween Kills

Daniel Craig is back (finally) in the long delayed Bond installment NO TIME TO DIE. Our hosts share their thoughts on the film as well as the latest entry in the MMCU (that’s the Michael Myers Cinematic Universe) HALLOWEEN KILLS. In the news segment Alan covers the recent announcements from both the DC & Marvel camps and asks his co-host which films (if any) have his Spidey-sense tingling. Before the credits roll on this episode we also provide recommendations of online content you might consider checking out.

Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “The Velvet Underground” , “Squid Game”

Alan Jackson is the co-founder of the Footcandle Film Society and resides in Hickory, NC. He enjoys a wide variety of films – but mainly those of Martin Scorsese, his all-time favorite Director. Despite liking smaller, independent films, Alan also likes films with giant monsters or where animals talk. Alan also thinks Citizen Kane deserves every bit of credit it ever gets.

Chris Frye, the other co-founder of Footcandle Film Society, is a fan of directors such as Stanley Kubrick, Terry Gilliam, and David Gordon Green. He lives in Newton, NC, and has always been a movie buff. His favorite actors range from Steve Coogan to Christoph Waltz to Jeff Bridges. You may be surprised to know he has never seen Dirty Dancing or Pretty in Pink (gasp!)
