Pop Culture Reviews and Analysis

Pop Culture Reviews

In between producing my first feature length documentary and creating content for The Artist in American History podcast series I like to look at new and old films, music, art, and literature.  In these reviews and retrospectives, I look at the themes and ideas from a variety of perspectives.  I cannot tell you if a ...

The Interview Review

The Interview – Review (It’s all in the Context)

Circumstances and context can make even the most asinine, rote film much more important than the sum of its parts.  That's not to say that one should not try to separate art from the larger narrative, that one should not try to understand and appreciate it purely on its own terms, but to place a work in its true context, ...

Pink Floyd – Endless Monotony (Endless River Review)

Pink Floyd’s The Endless River is not a meaningful album.  Stripped of almost any attempt to engage lyrically, the record falls back upon a series of intriguing but largely uninteresting instrumental tracks which never feel like they justify the decision to keep voices off of the album.  That isn’t to say that The ...

Transformers 4 Review

Transformers: Age of Extinction – Textbook Machismo

Transformers 4 drips with misogyny – it practically oozes from the movie’s every pore.  It is an utterly overpowering presence in this film, swamping even the titular transforming robots who serve as the canvas upon which direct Michael Bay paints his deeply, deeply sexist colours.  To be clear, the issue isn’t ...

Robocop under the Microscope

Robocop Under the Microscope – Critical Review

1987's Robocop was a savage commentary upon the state of western civilisation. In the wake of Happy Days, the Beach Boys's resurgence and, of course, Reagan and Thatcher, the power of conservatism loomed large but just as revolutions are prone to breed their own counterrevolutions, the status quo, particularly that type ...

Review: 24 - Live Another Day

Review – 24: Live Another Day | Jack Bauer’s Return

  24 was always a combination politics, propaganda, and entertainment.  Now that the series has returned following a four year absence, we examine what the first episodes in this new run bring to the pop culture table.  Is the show still an ardent supporter of American foreign policy or have the politics ...
