First Blog Post

Hey everyone. This will be my first entry in what is hopefully a series of perspectives on stories told through different forms of media. I would like to offer my analysis on various novels, films, television shows, video games, graphic novels, and any other medium of storytelling. All art is subjective, and therefore it’s up to the viewer to decide what to make of what they see; I’m just here to offer my take while also giving insight into certain unique or overlooked philosophies in many works. Did you know that Toy Story can also be seen as an allegory for science versus religion, or that The Dark Knight’s differing ideologies between Batman and the Joker call back to a nineteenth-century poem by Fyodor Dostoyevsky called “The Grand Inquisitor”? These specific queries will be explored along with more general questions such as “what is a good movie?” and “what is a bad movie?”. I look forward to getting started. Let’s see if anyone reads these posts.
