New vid up! Total Recall was the first R-rated movie I saw in a theater as a kid. And I snuck out of my church group's showing of Ghost to do so. A transgressive act for a transgressive movie. Please subscribe if you enjoy my content!

My latest essay is short but not to be confused with a lack of enthusiasm about a film that seared into my mind when I saw it as a kid.

It's been a while since I posted a Better Than You Remember video. This time it's one of my favorite supernatural thrillers from the 90s, Flatliners. Bacon, Sutherland, Baldwin, Roberts, Platt... yeah, 90s thrillers often had insane casts like this.

I had high hopes for the first black lead in a Star Wars movie. Finn's unique backstory was ripe for all kinds of dramatic storytelling opportunities. I was disappointed and in my latest video I examine what went wrong.

JJ's Trek was a hard pill for me to swallow despite being fun and engaging. It strayed too far from Trek's original "core values". But the bigger takeaway is his style as a filmmaker, which informed the choices he made for his version of the franchise.

Requiem For A Dream is the best anti-drug PSA I've ever seen, and as a film it's full of symbolism and subtext.... my latest video deciphers the various layers of Darren Aronofsky's uncompromising breakthrough.

Paranoia, bleakness, nihilism, dread... all things we're currently struggling with as a culture was predicted in John Carpenter's 1982 masterpiece, and its the subject of my latest video. Join me for a deep dive into the madness of the end of the world.

Before Marvel became the coca cola of movie franchises (and that's not necessarily a compliment), there was Blade, the subject of my latest video.

Michael Myers is probably the most enigmatic slasher villain. In my latest I dissect his relation to America's underlying social anxieties.

Part 2 of my ALIEN/ALIENS analysis. This one focuses specifically on Ripley, and why she is one of the best cinema heroes of all time.

The first of my two-part ALIEN/ALIENS analysis. The visceral terror the xenomorph inflicted on unsuspecting audiences really can't be understated. And it works because of very specific design choices made by Ridley Scott:

I always knew there was something weird with The Neverending Story when I saw it as a young lad. In my latest video I tackle the crazy-complex themes this movie isn't afraid to present to kids. FALCOR!

With the recent announcement of the Scream reboot, it feels like a good time to revisit the original and its seismic impact on the horror genre, which is still felt to this day.

In my latest video I attempt to decipher the code language Stanley Kubrick used in his sci-fi masterpiece 2001. New video every Wednesday at 12 noon Central.
