I watch a lot of YouTube videos. A lot. So I figured: why not roundup the best pop-culture video essays I’ve found in the most recent weeks so you don’t have to go searching for them?
Patrick (H) Willems on “Robin Hood, King Arthur, and Hollywood’s Problem with Public Domain Properties.” Which actually makes me really want to see a big Hollywood adaptation of Camelot 3000.
Lindsay Ellis on “That Time Disney Remade Beauty and the Beast.” Also happens to be a brilliant crossover with ContraPoints.
Mikey Neumann on “Blade Runner 2049 & the 20-Year Sequel.” I’m actually waiting to see this as I haven’t yet watched Blade Runner 2049 (yes, I know, SHAME), but any Movies with Mikey video is awesome.
Maggie Mae Fish on “Rugrats & Empathy - Lessons Animation Taught Us.” Which also made me realize just how fucked up the Rugrats movie was. God damn.
The Nerdwriter on “Darth Vader: An Icon In 34 Minutes.”
Ideas at Play on “How to Pilot a TV Show: LOST.”
HiTop Films on “Guardians of the Galaxy: Learning to Share Pain.”
