Episode 813: Movies About the Internet
In this episode, David and Scott discuss movies about the Internet as well as an unwarranted attack on Richard Brody.
For as long as there’s been an Internet, there have been movies about the Internet. But as the Internet has changed–both in its nature and in its relationship to our culture and daily lives–so have those movies. David and Scott discuss as many of them as they can think of, including Daniel Goldhaber’s Cam and more!
Battleship Pretension is a movie discussion podcast started in 2007 by Tyler Smith and David Bax. Since then, we’ve done live comedy shows, written reviews, commentaries and more.
Battleship Pretension is a film discussion show and a film review website founded by Tyler Smith and David Bax. Beginning in March 2007, Battleship Pretension the show (known to fans simply as “BP”) embodies the type of laidback, free-flowing conversations had by lovers of film around the world. Battleship Pretension the website is dedicated to being a destination for those seeking worthwhile opinions on current releases, be they foreign, independent, studio pictures, theatrical, home video releases, etc. From its meager beginnings in Los Angeles, Battleship Pretension has amassed a worldwide audience and readership. From Germany to Korea to Australia, people have tuned in to share in Tyler and David’s love of film. As Battleship Pretension’s following continues to grow, the purpose remains the same: Reach out to the international cinephile community, invite them to join in the discussion and perhaps even start one of their own.
I think the quote from the Bush administration official is “You guys are in the reality-based community, but we’re an empire now and create our own reality.” It was an extremely arrogant statement (which Marx’s quote about men making history not as they intend is relevant to) but it wasn’t actually about being “post-truth”.
David was right about how many V/H/S movies there are. Do not watch VHS: Viral, as the only good segment is “Parallel Monsters”.
