Some people might say ‘what the fuck is wrong with movies nowadays?’. This is the wrong question. I would prefer to ask ‘what the fuck is wrong with movieGOERS nowadays?’ Why do people invest nine god-damn hours into the Hobbit? Why do people think Inception or Prometheus are good movies? Why do people allow JJ Abrams, Chris Nolan, or Zack Snyder to direct movies? Has it simply become cheaper to make triple-A special effect than a triple-A story?
It is soothing to me that Mike, Jay and the crew from Red Letter Media share my frustrations.
They are people who are passionate about movies but aren’t fanboys. They dissect movies in their own profound, poignant and drunk style . We don’t always agree on movies but I take comfort knowing they agree that Prometheus made no fucking sense.
2014 has been a huge year for RLM because of Patreon. Their content just gets better, but also something that I can rely on. Probably because now their work is something that puts beer on the table. As a Patreon backer, I get my $2 worth out of RLM, but also glad that there is a way that I can support directly artists I enjoy. Watch some RLM, and if you like ’em, back ’em!
