  • The best YouTube channel about movies
    The Pop Culture Detective YouTube channel is hands down my favorite movie-related channel. Jonathan, the host, doesn’t do reviews of the latest movies, and he has zero content about entertainment news. What he has is analysis. I began watching Johnathan’s videos solely for the entertainment value, but in the process, I ...
  • Classic Movie Rewatch – Raiders Of The Lost Ark after 40 years
    What links a toilet cistern, fingering a cheese casserole, a Honda Civic rolling down a gravel path, whacking a pile of leather jackets with a baseball bat, and R2-D2? They’re all sound effects used during the production of Raiders Of The Lost Ark. The toilet cistern is the sound of the lid ...
  • Primer for Guardians of the Galaxy
    There are some spoilers here, but this is intended as a primer for the first 30 minutes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 1, that can at times be a little confusing. First, you need to have seen the after credit scene for Thor 2: The Dark World. That’s where ...
  • Movie Review – Greenland (and other disaster films)
    Disaster movies are my favorite genre. Don’t get me wrong, they’re not the best movies in the world by far. But damn good entertainment. Considering the genre as a whole, I think Greenland lands comfortably in the top third.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M8s0w1Fzm4 Mild spoilers ahead. Dramatic, but not overly so One commonality among many disaster movies ...
  • Movie Analysis: A Deeper Look at Mortal Kombat
    Mortal Kombat… Need I Say More? Wow. I’ve gotta start off saying I thoroughly enjoyed it. The acting may not have been top notch. Cole specifically… But the storyline was decent. The nostalgia was there. The corny humor sprinkled throughout. The finishes and fatalities…it was all worthwhile. There are spoilers below. Proceed ...
  • What’s in a Movie Analysis Essay?
    There seems to be no more enjoyable activity than working on a movie analysis essay. Make yourself some popcorn, get comfy on the couch, and watch an exciting movie. You can even invite your friends if you want to have fun. All you have to do is write down your ...
  • My Favorite YouTube Channels About Movies
    Pop Culture Detective Description: A series of video essays looking at media through a critical lens with an emphasis on the intersections of politics, masculinity and entertainment. Hosted by Jonathan McIntosh. Pop Culture Detective is hands down my favorite movie related YouTube channel. His videos aren’t short. Most of them run in the ...
  • Everything wrong with Wonder Woman 1984 and suggestions to fix it
        Wonder Woman 1984 (WW84) is an insult to storytelling. It’s popular to blame the writers and directors in cases like this, but I think it’s clear that the decision makers — asshats — at Warner Brothers are the real reason WW84 is so bad. There’s a great article over at ...
  • Hobbitses – A Tolkien history – Behind the Lord of the Rings in epic fantasy films
      Typical! Wait decades for a film with hobbits in, and six come along at the same time! At least, that’s how it felt. Like many teens of the time, I had my copy of the single volume paperback edition of The Lord Of The Rings, shortly after it was first ...
  • The Dumb Movies – How films earn D grades at RunPee
    Here we are near the very bottom of the barrel, after detailed discussion of our A, B, and C range ratings. What films rate the “dumb” D grades at RunPee? How many movies are this bad…and what makes them suck? Just to be clear, a D grade is a FAIL, movie-wise, ...
  • How movies get C Grades at RunPee
    To start with: a C grade isn’t considered a bad movie. It’s just not a good one. It’s average. It can be mediocre, vanilla, fluffy, lightweight, ponderous — or most condemning of all: boring. But in all, these are watchable films. And since every movie is somebody’s favorite, we try to ...
  • What does the ending of JoJo Rabbit mean? (Spoilers)
    So why do JoJo and Elsa share a silly dance at the end of JoJo Rabbit? What does this even mean? When JoJo returns home from the movie’s World War II Nazi adventures, he lets Elsa out of his huge empty house, competently — for once — lacing the red leather ...
  • How do the movies in Star Wars stand up to the Bechdel test?
    Do the characters in Star Wars — movies ostensibly depicting future lives and worlds — pass the Bechdel test? I was up too late one night and decided to think this through. What is the Bechdel test, you ask? It’s generally accepted as whether a work of fiction features at least two ...
  • 5 Older Movies We’d Love Remakes Of (And 5 That Are Perfect)
    It is a truth universally acknowledged: a single movie in possession of a large following must be in want of a remake. At least, that’s how Hollywood executives seem to see things! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the real truth is that remakes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. And that’s even ...
  • Watching Outbreak in the time of CoVid-19
    I recently rewatched the 1994 disaster film Outbreak, because 1. I always loved that movie, 2. kind of dig diseases (I like science, okay?), and 3. there’s a real global pandemic happening right now. You’ve probably heard about that. Also, 4. I needed to get Peetimes for Outbreak, because I’m not the ...
  • Why Do Bad Guys Smoke in the Movies?
    Bad guys are smoking in the Movies It seems like smoking cigarettes is movie code for Villain Ahead. Why do the bad guys light up so much? It’s terrible for our lungs/longevity, but we’ve been brought up by the media to see smoking as cool and somewhat sexy (like a femme ...
  • Movie Rant – Why I hated Underwater
    I love Aliens and The Abyss; I’m a sucker for disaster and survival films, even if they aren’t wholly original. So, I was looking forward to watching Underwater. I caught it last night after rewatching Frozen 2 (and which I preferred to the original). But did I like Underwater? In a ...
  • Is the girl from A Quiet Place deaf in real life?
    Is the girl from A Quiet Place deaf in real life? In a word, yes. The girl, aptly played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf and speaks American Sign Language. And she’ll definitely be in the follow-up film, but presumably older, wiser, and quieter. Representing Disability in A Quiet Place Actor-director John Krasinski ...
  • The Seven Droids We Love from Star Wars (and what exactly they do)
    We love our Star Wars Droids, big and little, especially when they are funny or maybe cute. Moreso when they are funny AND cute — like R2-D2 and BB-8. Every live-action Star Wars movie (plus The Mandalorian) has at least one memorable Droid character tagging along with their human owners. (Yes, ...
  • Every Type of Star Wars Stormtrooper, Explained
    So, I was making my own list of every type of Stormtrooper we see in Star Wars, and I found a definitive video explaining more types than I ever noticed. And I notice most things in science fiction films. One of the great things about Star Wars is the massive ...
  • Star Wars – Death Stars and Planet Killers: Enough Already
    Star Wars is stuck in a Death Star rut. Why is Lucasfilm so attached to Planet Killers? A New Hope opened with a super-weapon. They probably felt they had to up the stakes forever after. How many Star Wars movies feature a Death Star — or something like one? It’s been ...
  • Star Wars Analysis – What does balance in the Force mean?
    Since we first saw The Phantom Menace in 1999, audiences wondered what precisely it meant to bring balance to the Force. Anakin Skywalker was prophesied to “bring it” and at the time, we all assumed it meant to bring more Light Side and less Darkness. Which made no sense, since ...
  • The Force is dead. Long live the Force.
    JJ Abrams and Lucas killed the Force by boxing it into their preconceived needs to tell a story they wanted to tell instead of letting the story tell itself.
  • Movie analysis – Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has lots of enjoyable moments that make the movie worth seeing, but also lots of flaws that could have been avoided.
  • The End of Skywalker – the Rise of…Something
    Spoilers ahead for Rise of Skywalker! As of this second, I’m not entirely sure how I feel about Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker. Episode IX. Are they still actually numbering them? I don’t know… That’s really it… I don’t know… I DON’T know… I’ll start with something easy. This was leaps and ...
