    Brilliant as always -- as with the White Savior and Newspaper Movie ones, totally nails the predictable tropes, and flags a few you didn't even realize were a thing (but they are).
    PS: Seth Meyers can touch my hand a little too long anytime.

    Did the writers honestly think Spike Lee films are Oscar bait?

    • Hannah McBride
      Hannah McBride 4 months ago +1

      @The Fidget Spinner Movie Idk, I've seen that shot done before. It's not about just Oscar films, it's about baiting films trying to be artistic, which is what that shot comes off as.

    • The Fidget Spinner Movie

      @Hannah McBride It's not used in any other film hardy, especially in Oscar films not by Spike Lee.

    • Hannah McBride
      Hannah McBride 4 months ago +2

      When did they say that? They just said the camera effect that's overused is 'that weird Spike Lee thing'.

    "That weird independent movie theater one town over that's always about to go out of business." - Literally describes the independent theater I go to. If it was not for middle-age and elderly women, that place would go out of business.
