Bad Blood, Interpretations

With the release of Taylor Swift’s most recent album she also released a ton of new music videos. One of the more interesting productions was the release of Bad Blood, which tries to pit Taylor as an action heroine, which really does not work. So of course following something that is really popular you will often get parodies or commentaries on said videos. Following are two videos that David and I found that we decided we needed to share.

Even More Sins with Music Video Sins!

From the makers of CinemaSins, we found a whole other channel on Youtube called Music Video Sins! We’ve been enjoying these because we’ve always liked CinemaSins, but they’ve gotten pretty long. These videos are only a few minutes and easier to watch because of it!

Sorry, today fully got away from me so not much more than this. More details on that tomorrow. But how about another video below the fold?

Have we mentioned Honest Trailers?

We love us some movies, and we love us some movie commentary. Blogs like We Minored in Film, or YouTube channels like How It Should Have Ended or CinemaSins. Well, somewhere in there we found another: Honest Trailers, by Screen Junkies.

Their most recent is Mad Max: Fury Road, which was pretty spectacular. Basically agreeing with me: if you’re going to make an action movie, make one like Fury Road!

A couple more recent ones we liked below the fold!

New YouTube Find: Couch Tomato

Movies? Check. Comparative? Check. Short and funny? Check. All elements that make it so that we have been loving the videos from a recent YouTube channel find, Couch Tomato. I think that the channel was recommended by CinemaSins and that’s how we first found it.

I kind of think this one was deliberate…

Each video they give 24 reasons why two movies are the same. A simple enough conceit! It’s sometimes plot, sometimes characters, generally a lot of both. Some are stretches, or all in how you phrase things… but often that just makes you realize that it’s basically the same character just now slightly different.

And having done a bunch of these, there was also a recent one talking about how two movies that you might think were the same weren’t…

We’ve been enjoying Couch Tomato, so hopefully you will too! What do you think about some of the videos or comparisons?

Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Great? Or Overrated?

We saw something interesting today. Specifically, this:

Sorry America, we did not love this movie like most of you did. On an unrelated note, we also found TONS of sins in this movie; way more than you were probably expecting.

That’s from the new CinemaSins for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In 20 minutes, they rip into the film. Or, well, try. Do you think they did a good job?
