Technique vs Anecdotes? (Please correct me if I'm wrong!)
MegadethOfSuperman posted a topic in The CanonI feel like I might be completely wrong here, but I've become a little disappointed in the fact that since the show has returned, there seems to be less discussion about the films themselves than personal anecdotes. It's not that this isn't interesting (particularly Jake's stories of John Waters), but I haven't heard topics like shots, editing, music, tone, effects, etc. discussed as thoroughly as they were before the show went on hiatus. I'm hoping that there's a way to maybe strike a balance between personal stories and how they relate to the film at hand, and the techniques of the film itself. It seems that Devin's dogmatic attention to the structure of the show was the case for this, but that's just a theory. However, like I said, I may be nitpicking or just flat out wrong. Chime in if you have an opinion of any kind as it relates to this. Love the show, love the guests, love the discussion. God(?) bless Amy Nicholson. I'll listen to the show no matter what happens.
