Nerdwriter is one of our favorite channels on YouTube, consisting of author’s videos on various topics: from the art of depicting Jack Nicholson’s anger before Amazon Go will change our lives. But most often Evan, the author of the channel, tells about the cinema and various aspects of filmmaking.
How do you, for example, the historical and economic analysis of the role of dragons in the “Game of Thrones”? Six minutes of historical analogies leading to the conclusion that the era of dragons leads to progress, a centralized state and taxation. If this is not a gigantic orgasm, then what is it?
In his last, only yesterday’s released issue of the film “Passengers”, Evan examines what went wrong with this picture and did not allow the film, shot on the third in the black list of scenarios (unofficial ranking of the best unsold scenarios of Hollywood) 2007 to become as much a noticeable event in the world of cinema.
Why is this interesting?
As Evan himself notes, not so many original large-budget fantasy films are being removed in the world. Screenings, remakes, restarts – as many as you like. But in such a way that on an equal place and about space – very little. And let “Passengers” is not “Gravitation”, the film is not so bad as to be completely ignored. And from its shortcomings, one can at all learn useful lessons for the future.
Dollar customers’ club
The sponsor of this issue was the company Dollar Shave Club. Too uneasy guys, by the way: a year ago the household goods giant Unilever bought a startup to deliver shaving accessories by subscription for $ 1 billion. The company owes its grandiose success to one simple idea: why pay $ 20 a month for new blades of some branded Gillette, $ 19 of which will still go for expensive marketing, explaining to you what the fuck you have to spend such money on a sharpened piece of metal every month, If you can get all the same for the dollar, and its marketing is not expensive, but viral:
For $ 5 Dollar Shave Club offers a starter kit in the form of a machine, four blades, oil (they say, it’s more useful for leathers Than cream) after shaving and the magazine “Free minutes”. For those who have already finished the air freshener, apparently.
However, only the razors of the DSC range are not limited to:
Perhaps in their financial model there is only one flaw: on the site you can not order an annual set of blades to the machine – you know, by analogy with a suitcase of socks for a year. A great gift would be. And so, of course, every month from the US to carry blades even with the transfer of Pochtoy.com will be more expensive than any branded “it’s better for a man no.”
Please send “Pochtoy.kom”
However, to order and try the starter kit at the link of the Nerdrajter (which in any case would cost five bucks, we just want to support the beloved author) nothing hinders – separately or in the load to the already available orders that you deliver through the “Mail”. We wait for the impressions of the customers who ordered it.
According to tradition, the first order of the shipment of Pochtoy.com – a discount of $ 5 on the promo code supergeek .
PS If you liked the Nerdraiter channel, then be sure to go to Every Frame a Painting. This channel is more narrow-literate, dedicated specifically to the cinema, rather deeply dissects the author’s style of the most interesting film-makers from the point of view of various aspects of cinema art.
Such videos as Edgar Wright – How to Do Visual Comedy and Michael Bay – What is Bayhem? You can probably already enter into the gold fund “Yutuba.”
