Can you ever really call a movie “the best”? More importantly, should you?
I made a lot of videos and podcast episodes in 2020. To narrow down which ones I’d pick for this video, I divided them into four categories and picked five from each one. I also talk for a little while at the beginning about my plans for making videos and podcasting in the new year, and especially my plans for writing.
I’m taking a brief break from updating my website, for two reasons: It’s my birthday today, and there’s a national crisis. I’ve already addressed the coronavirus and how we should be reacting to it in a previous post, and there are much more reliable news sources than my podcast which everyone should be checking every day. Which brings me back to taking a break. My posts, including recommendations, news, and entertainment will resume at some point in April. If you want to get me a gift for my birthday, you can always buy my ebooks, available on all platforms. Be sure to rate and review. In the meantime, you can watch last week’s Monte Awards:
Horror and animation both have long histories in film, and both face their own challenges in embracing that history while still innovating for future movies.
Comic books and video games are difficult to adapt into movies. Even with all the recent success, some still go unnoticed.
Fantasy and Young Adult movies can tell us a lot about ourselves; particularly about the need to not lose your sense of wonder as you grow older.
