Meta Slashers: A Retrospective
on Thursday, October 18, 2012
Phil talks great movies that require prior knowledge of the ridiculous tropes that make up the teen slasher genre, including Scream
(and its sequels), New Nightmare
, Cabin in the Woods
, and many more!
Star Trek (TAS) “The Lorelei Signal”
“It looks like the guy who cleans the Enterprise toilets has the week off, so congratulations, Uhura, you are now in charge!”Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014)
“Birdman may not be everything it’s been hyped to be, and it may not even be remembered as groundbreaking cinema—mostly because it’s not.”Pretty Deadly
“Since Image Comics recently announced the production of a second arc, I made it a point to give it a try. The verdict? I have no idea how to feel. My brain is screaming ‘status code: 400’.”The Flash’s sexist “don’t tell the girlfriend” rule
“Every man in Iris’s life is lying to her. Her boyfriend, her best friend, and her father. This is beyond mere protectiveness: this is patronizing mistrust.”RIP superhero origin stories (1978 - 2015)
“There’s one thing Marvel fans, movie fans, and pretty much all of civilized society are in unanimous agreement upon: Please, not another Spider-Man origin story.”Skyfall (2012)
“Granted, it’s far, far superior to the last meta-Bond film they tried (that would be Die Another Day), but it doesn’t have much of an identity of its own.”
