As part of rebooting my website, I’ve come up with a release schedule for videos. The first 3 Mondays of a month will be for my main 3 series, Epic Fail, Sequential Filmmaking and Bad-aptation, and Let’s Plays and Pokémon playthroughs will be released every Friday and Saturday.
The problem I’ve been having for the last month or so is filling the last slot for videos. I’ve been racking my brain and I’ve come up with some ideas and figured I’d throw it out to the Internet for some insight on what people would want to watch.
Eclectic Distaste: a music review show where I look at a song and go over what works and what doesn’t, reviewing the lyrical content, the production value, things of that nature.
The Dark Side for Kids: a darker look at children’s and family media. In this series, I’ll cover things like the depressing backstory of Mrs. Brisby, the dark alternative parenting styles of Willy Wonka and why Jareth is way more villainous than we probably give him credit.
Lucky Sevens: a list series where I cover the Top/Bottom Seven of a topics like Worst Villain Songs, Worst Cases of Disneyfication and Top Young Adult Novels and Series Deserving of Adaptation.
Hidden Gems: a look at movies that aren’t widely known, some not even well known enough to be considered cult classics, but are still worthy of attention. This includes movies like The Ghost and the Darkness, UHF, Cannibal The Musical, Dredd 3D and The Last Unicorn.
“Goodwill Hunting:” while visiting Goodwill stores and other thrift shops in my area, I’ve discovered some of the weirdest videos only released on VHS, and I’ve decided to share them with the Internet for fun and profit. I put the title in quotations because I’ve decided to change the name to avoid any issues I might have by using a trademarked name as part of the title.
Ad Nauseum: something I never see covered that much by online reviewers is commercials and ad campaigns. Every so often Doug Walker will do a video where he watches old commercials from the 80s and 90s, but I’ve never seen an in depth look at commercials and marketing campaigns, so I decided to do it myself. Still working out the kinks on how the episodes will work.
Nothing But the Truth: one of my major beefs with biopics and movies “based on a true story” is the varying degree of artistic license filmmakers will take with the truth to tell their story. In this series, I hope to take biopics to task on how accurate they are to the real thing.
I’m also considering doing a monthly summary video for all the major theatrical releases. Let me know what you think.
