William Shatner’s Captain James T. Kirk was full of sugar-honey-iced-tea when he said “Space, the final frontier.” Here on the Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, the debates possible are as endless as the stars. Their newest show brings a big, loud argument for the ages that fits right in with the true spirit of the show. It took a special movie of love/hate energy, galactic proportions, and a damn good guest to launch this show beyond the final frontier!

For their 53rd episode, armored film critics, cryogenically-sealed dads, and fix-it-all teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan have invited Seattle film critic and Feelin’ Film podcast host Aaron White for a knockdown/drag-out shouting match over the 2016 Chris Pratt-Jennifer Lawrence star vehicle Passengers. Mr. White holds in in high regard while our CHF hosts play the garbagemen looking for trash. This might the best collection of rants and arguments the podcast has ever produced to date!


Feelin' Film podcast host Aaron White

Aaron White is a longtime podcast listener whose passion is to discuss movies in a positive way was realized in the creation of Feelin’ Film alongside his childhood best friend, Patrick. With so much negativity in both film criticism and fandom, the collective dislike of a movie tends to ring louder than those praising it. His hope is that by shining a light on the emotional impact of all films discussed, Feelin’ Film can begin to shape the viewing habits of listeners and encourage them to focus on the best a movie has to offer instead of latching on to what they didn’t like.

He is currently an accredited film critic and member of the Seattle Film Critics Society living in Seattle, WA with his two children, three cats, and Boston Terrier puppy. Though the majority of his free time is invested in Feelin’ Film, he also enjoys watching sports, playing games, and hiking. He also thoroughly enjoys conversation about all of these things and is active on TwitterFacebook, and Letterboxd🍌 Approved
