Lindsay Ellis made this site, yo. She also has a dog.
Elisa Hansen hosts Vampire Reviews as mistress of the macabre and lonely goth shut-in, the Maven of the Eventide. She examines the influence and evolution of vampires in media and pop culture for better and much, much worse. Although the show primarily consists of film criticism, anything with vampires is fair game to be subjected to over-analytical scrutiny and literary analysis under the Maven’s finefanged comb.
Dan Olson aka The Foldable Human is the Canadian filmmaker behind Folding Ideas, an intersectional look at narrative theory. From movies to pop songs, propaganda to video games, stories and the craft of storytelling infuse our daily lives. Folding Ideas is a show dissecting media from the roots up.
Kyle Kallgren is a chronic overthinker who spends far too much time seeking out the oddest corners of the world of film, television, the internet, the world of art in general. His primary series Brows Held High is an overview of intelligent if bizarre films ranging from the wild to the weird to the wicked to the wondrous. A lover of art theory, he aims to find the strangest perceptions of the world and share them. He currently lives in Queens, New York City with his girlfriend, roommate, and dog. He has no cats.
Rantasmo is a queer theory enthusiast and Important Homosexual. He hosts Needs More Gay, which looks at film, television, video games and other media through an LGBT+ lens—from queer representation in Steven Universe and BioWare RPGs to the glorious campiness of Hocus Pocus and Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.
Todd (in the Shadows) Who is this mysterious shadow man who refuses to show his face? And why does he only talk about pop music? What does this gimmick have to do with his choice of topic? No one knows. But Todd is here to dissect the latest hit songs, as well as the flops and one hit wonders of the musical past, all while sitting at his piano and not looking at the camera.
Mikey Neumann hosts Movies with Mikey, a relentlessly positive take on the film genre. From Sunshine to Interstellar, Mikey wants you to know it’s okay to love movies again, even if the internet tells you that it isn’t. You’ll laugh and then you’ll cry, possibly at the same time. Did we mention MwM is kind of an experience unto itself? Caution: you may feel things.
H. Bomberguy talks about stuff
