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.

Creed 3 To Leslie

Michael B. Jordan is back in the ring with CREED III now in theaters. Alan & Chris discuss the film and then cover TO LESLIE which received a surprise best actress nomination for star Andrea Riseborough. In an another round of Trailer Tapas we cover the recently released promos for TETRIS & HAUNTED MANSION. Looking for a palette cleanser of sorts after all the high brow talk of the upcoming Academy Awards? One of our hosts recommends that 1988’s VAMPIRE’S KISS featuring an unhinged Nic Cage performance might just do the trick.

Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “Vampire’s Kiss”

Footcandle Film Society

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!)
