Anyone else watch Good Bad Flicks, specifically his Exploring series? His regular reviews are way too dry for me and some of that carries over to his more in depth videos but I like it when he gives a rundown of a film's production history in a 10-15 minute chunk.

As for good content Ants Canada is a show by a former contestant of Canadian Idol who now lives in the Philippines and makes elaborate ant terrariums as a hobby.

He's been making some real batshit insane ones the last couple of months, but this week he's kind of going back to basics after dealing with a lot of poo poo with his Amazon River aquarium/terrarium hybrid to house his Tropical Fire Ant colony.

Not sure how showing using nuclear weapons being super effective and saving the day makes them more anti-nuke than using it which accelerates your own destruction. I mean, you can like one movie and dislike the other, dislike or like both but the messaging in Avengers was pretty bad.
I'm coming at it from the angle where the nuke in Avengers is an American strike against it's own people. It only saved the day because of the actions of the avengers and the presence of a giant space vortex. If it had gone as intended it would have atomized New york. The only planned collateral damage in Batman V Superman was superman. It was a bad idea to nuke the monster, but there's no realistic way anyone would have known that.

Basically, one nuke was justified and the other wasn't even if the results didn't line up that way. That's my take anyway, I'm not inclined to cheer for nuking civilians even if it turned out alright in the end.

A justified nuclear attacking turning out bad seems more anti-nuke than an unjustified nuclear attack turning out good.

Or maybe — hear me out here — it’s not pro-nuke or anti-nuke, and is just there as a neutral threat the heroes have to solve to avert self-destruction.

Sometimes a nuke is just a penis nuke.

To some, nukes are a neutral, non-ideological threat, and directing them at aliens is just common sense.

Wait, hang on, I got this...

I generally like a lot of Ralph’s content, but his Zack Snyder character always felt really weird and out of place, and I’m pretty glad he seems to have killed the character off for good via... showing him he isn’t real? Macon is... a strange evolution, but at least there’s something to work with there.

I've been quite fond of this video essay from Breaking Banter about the No Man's Land scene in WW. I have some minor quibbly nitpicks about their interpretation of Diana's "primary internal struggle," but overall I find it a really good examination of why exactly that sequence works so well that I haven't quite seen from other reviewers.

So now that that's settled, I'm curious, I got introduced to an internet reviewer recently, and for once it was one I actually found myself liking instead of getting annoyed at almost instantly. Overly Sarcastic Productions.

I've only watched a couple of videos from each person, and I like Red's more (minus the Trope Talk, but that's just me), but I love Blue's history segments. They remind me very much Geop's history stuff, which I love too (and I'm almost convinced they take a lot of inspiration from him but I've got no actual way to prove that other than some topics and style/music choices), and I've been thinking for years that I would totally watch a channel that was just history lectures or summaries, and here it is, but with cool summaries of mythology too.

They seem to be relatively popular, so it's weird that I've never seen anyone talk about them in here, unless I've just been blind, which is entirely plausible.

Hercules and Xena was what more or less sustained the NZ film industry during he lean years of the 90s, which didn't really do much outside of a few big ones here and there - there were several high profile local films released like Once Were Warriors, but the vast majority of NZ films from this period were more or less being squeezed out of cinemas by American films (this isn't a go at American cinema, but just a simple statement of fact). Obviously the majority of the cast would do ads, TV shows like Shortland Street (a long-running soap opera set in a fictional hospital) and theatre, but so would the majority of the crew. Hercules and Xena provided a steady income and valuable major TV experience with huge exposure for a lot of the crew that worked on it.

Honestly, prior to Lord of the Rings, Sam Raimi did more for the NZ film industry than Peter Jackson did.
