I genuinely don't know. Work blocks Twitter, and someone in the thread mentioned ass-grabbing.

What happened?
As far as I can tell it's
-goes on weird druggy rant while also hitting on the host
-audience member heckles and throws something at him
-he throw a champagne glass back at guy, starts fight
-gets escorted off by security

Your appreciation of the new Tame Impala will be directly related with how much you love 80’s era band jams/synths ( not the vice city type of synths) w some solid, if not forgettable vocals.

For me it’s his “weakest“ album , which is admittedly a weird critique sense the others are classics. It never elevated me to the same places the other two did.

Don’t get me wrong though there is some great, GREAT music here. Even non S tier Tame Impala is more than enjoyable

Yikes at this slowthai stuff 😬 Katherine Ryan is a pretty funny comedian and he’s just fully being a creep. Dude is off his head.

Finally got to this Denzel Curry/Kenny Beats EP- these 2 were made for each other. Crazy synergy on this thing, and Denzel's continued to evolve into a real dynamic performer.

Well, it’s been brought to our attention that the album will have Jigga featured on multiple tracks (more than 7). The only thing holding it up from being called a complete collaborative project, is that Jay’s not on every track.
Not sure if this was posted. This thing might actually see the light of day.

Not a film nerd, but THR's Roundtables are some of the best film discussion I've ever come across. More about process than product, though.

All of them are great, every single year.

"this video is sponsored by squarespace/blue apron/dollar shave club"

These damn, "I have 6,000 posts on KTT", pimple faced, 21-year old Literature majors who think that have some kind of unique rap taste like, "my favorite rapper is teejayx6", or whatever the fuck, and make 40 minute YouTube videos about the "the fall and rise of mixtape-era Wayne", like any other regular Rap fan over the age of 25 doesn't already know about this shit, retweeting dumb Earl Sweatshirt tweets or thinking that "following JPEGMAFIA on twitter" makes you unique, "I lowkey fuck with Goblin-era Tyler more than Flower-era Tyler", face ass.

This post is how I felt about that Hypebeast article about the AI Travis Scott song starting with how La Flame has "shaped trends and has been a major driving force in the music industry for well-over a half decade"

I stanned harder for Travi$ than anyone but, bruh, c'mon

Jesus lmao

Swap KTT for era, make it a 24 year old lit graduate and this is dangerously close to me, except I don’t make shitty YouTube videos and have long ago realised I’m not unique or interesting

Literally only Tony Zhou @ Every Frame a Painting. Everyone else is utter trash, worse than trash, the lowest of the low.

If you have a Criterion Channel account, esteemed cinema studies professor David Bordwell has a serious of analytical videos examining theme and craft through specific films. Would highly recommend these, though they skew a tad too elementary for my tastes. I could also recommend you some film literature, like, books, depending on what you are interested in. David Bordwell also maintains a fantastic blog where he and his wife analyze all sorts of lesser known films.


Otherwise, there really isn't a better substitute then simply watching as many films as you can and taking the time to analyze them yourself. I have a longstanding theory that an over reliance on these Youtube "critics" are lowering societal ability to critically analyze. Countless times I've seen what what I feel like are self explanatory films only to have my filmic companion ask me all sorts of questions that really only take a few moments of reflection to answer. Break the mold!

I've also always liked this video, though it's a tad dry. Taught me quite a bit back in my high-school days.



EDIT: The podcast Screennotes can be great, especially when they bring on guests. A24 and the DGA put out some great podcasts as well.

DOUBLE EDIT: I've also been recently listening to / watching film commentaries as well. The classical end-all-be-all of educational commentaries is John Sturges on the Bad Day at Black Rock laserdisk. PTA once infamously remarked that he learned everything he knows through listening to this commentary. Doesn't hurt that the film happens to be a classic as well. Additionally, Criterion edition of Blood Simple has an amazing features where the Coen Bros and their cinematographer, now director Barry Sonnenfeld, sit down with touchpads and draw out, scene by scene, like NFL play-by-play commentary, how they constructed the look of the film. Def. worth a watch.

Every Frame a Painting was too good for this world, and spawned an entire industry of corrosive imitators slowly destroying the entire the meaning of cinema studies and the very concept of loving film as an art form.

Not sure if you were a member of Zhou's Patreon before quit for good, his final post went described in detail just how much work went in to each video. Tony would spend literally months of reading and research. There was a picture of all the books he read before his Looney Tunes video - literally dozens. One can understand why he burnt out, and why his videos are so much higher in quality than the ostensible "competition." I doubt other YouTube "critics" put even a week of research in their videos, beyond maybe parsing out which potential subject would be the most financially lucrative.

Anyway, I guess my recommendations to you depend on what you are looking for. Do you want to be entertained? Discover new films? Learn more about cinematic craft? Because I got options for all, baby.

Forgot about one more guy. Mathew Dessem used to run a blog where he attempted to both watch and expiate upon each film in the Criterion Collection. Though he only made it through a little more than 100 before professional obligations overtook his private enthusiasms, he wrote some of the most entertaining and educational critiques I've yet to read. As his blog went on, he became more and more detailed, so the earlier spine numbers lack some of the panache of his later entries, but reading his blog during my early High School years was one of the formative experiences of my early filmic education.
