Why Video Game Movies SUCK! ► http://bit.ly/1dI8VBH

It's that time of year again, time for eggnog, caroling, and RANTING about the BREAKDOWN OF THE INTERNET! You know, usual holiday stuff. In all seriousness, though, for those who are new to my channels, once a year I like to delve beyond movies and video games and theorize about the platform I love and spent literally all of my time: YouTube. This year on Film theory the topic of the day is FAKE NEWS and why fake news and clickbait have been so prominent on YouTube this year. Seriously, they've been huge issues that everyone has been talking about and that every single one of you watching have been suckered into at one point or another. So where is it coming from? And more importantly, what do we DO about it? Well, I guess you clicked the video to find out... ;)

Film Theory: Why Pewdiepie's Fiverr Joke Backfired

The Media vs. Pewdiepie! ►► http://bit.ly/2lGWjkW The Media LIES! ►► http://bit.ly/2lQWI4A This is one I wanted to cover 1) because many of you were requesting my thoughts and 2) because I think Pewdiepie's situation can teach us all a lot of things about the nature of comedy and how comedy can be a force for good in the world. And let me reiterate it here, since I'm sure people will jump to conclusions prematurely without watching the video: I support Pewdiepie. I'm a fan of his. I respect and enjoy his work.
