Weekly Clickables: 4/27/2015

Hi, folks. We have an eclectic mixture of items to check out this week, but I personally feel that these are some of the more interesting and/or worthwhile clickables we’ve shared. First: you may have heard about the passing of long-time TIME editor/movie reviewer Richard Corliss. As a tribute to his reviewing career, TIME published this list of his 25 best reviews. You’ve also likely heard about or watched the new Star Wars trailer and the new Batman vs. Superman trailer. For those who aren’t entirely enamored of the recent film buff craze around movie trailers and teasers, however,...

Hi folks! Our clickables this week include some attention towards gender equality in Hollywood, as well as fun for Harry Potter fans and my own review of the shoebox iPhone projector. First, for Harry Potter fans and LARPers, a piece about a Polish castle where you can go to attend wizardry college. Next, something from one of our friends. After generously allowing four of our writers to sit in on their production, the No, Totally! podcast built upon their reputation of valuable film discussion through their conversation with Lexi Alexender, director of Punisher: War Zone and outspoken advocate of establishing gender...

This week, we’re looking ahead to the summer movie season, but we’ve also got some good stuff for those who prefer to stay home and watch hour after hour of Netflix in their underwear. First up, a summer-y (sorry, I had to) of what’s ahead in 2015: Yeah, we know. We expect to provide our summer movie preview and our guidance is 100% trustworthy, but it never hurts to open the discussion to outside sources. Here, Deadspin critics Tim Grierson and Will Leitch provide a comprehensive predictive rundown of what to expect, good and bad, from this year’s Blockbuster...

Happy Easter, and I hope you all enjoyed your long weekends (made longer by visiting family). To help ease you back into the work week, we’ve got a few light items for you. Head over to IndieWire and read the full script for Kubrick’s Napoleon epic that never was. (Did I say “light”? Oops…) Alternatively, you could dive into the X-Files with some guidance from an expert. Featured on Felicia Day’s geek culture site Geek & Sundry, YouTube movie vlogger Holland Farkas gives some pointers for those unfamiliar with The X-FIles, advising readers where to start watching with the...

Okay folks, here we go. This week, the best of the rest of the internet offers some retrospective and speculative links, as well as a little something for fans of the classic Disney Cinderella. First, a look back at the disappointing sequel to the iconic film Jaws: YouTube film reviewer Chris Stuckmann’s newest video in his Hilariocity series, devoted to exhaustively analyzing those special movies so bad that they’re accidentally good, features an in-depth critique of 1987’s Jaws: The Revenge. Stuckmann applies his usual blend of charm, sophomoric humor, and infectious love for movies to what is without a...

We’ve got some great stuff for you this week. A little bit of history, a little bit of humor, a little bit of culture, and a little bit of crafting. First up: Andrew Jarecki, director of HBO’s The Jinx, spoke with the New York Times in attempt to clear up some questionable timelines and to describe the experience of waiting on Roberts Durst’s arrest after capturing one of the most incredible moments in the history of crime documentaries. Read it here. Then we have this beautiful/awesome/disturbing Vimeo video, which shows the first and last frames of films. It’s five...

Welcome to Weekly Clickables, a new feature through which we share articles, videos, interviews, essays–anything we find during our casual web-browsing–with our readers. Every Monday, we’ll provide you with a few items to click on during the week.
