After consistently making episodes of The Whole Plate from April-SeptemberLindsay put the series on hiatus due to "technical reasons"starting back up again at the end of June The example of American History X gets invoked in her discussion of satire, pointing out that while the film does portray neo-Nazis as bad people, it does so using a lot of the same visual language as Nazi propaganda, which has the side-effect of making them look On the other hand, one of the places where she undeniably praises the satire in The Producers is that it's impossible to look at the Nazi character and imagery in that film and find them worthy of emulation — the Nazi is a pathetic, delusional buffoon, and the imagery is campy farce and tacky costumes with a drugged beatnik playing Hitler.
Don't Fear the Reaper: Dramatically Missing the Point: One of the core reasons she loathes Beauty and the Beast is that by making so many pointless and sloppy changes to pad the run time and appease pedantic nit-picking critics is that by doing so it completely misses the point of the original story. She feels it takes what should be a simple story about love, forgiveness, redemption, and discovering your best self, and then turns out a sloppy mess that is so concerned with bowing to every scrap of criticism no matter how nit-picky that it completely loses sight of what the original story was even about.
So on the one hand, there's this bid to make Gaston kind of more sympathetic by implying he has PTSD[ He's the high school jock everybody admires. He doesn't need to be more than that.
He just needs to be a big handsome dummy everybody admires because he's arrogant and good-looking, because that tends to be how it happens in the real world and that's kind of the point of the movie [ Why do we need to make the town both more bigoted AND more sympathetic?
They're a poor provincial town! Lindsay's video essays are often presented with a perfect balance of information and levity, making them informative, as well as entertaining in their own right.
End of an Era: Being an film school graduate and avid cinema history buff, Lindsay likes to discuss these a lot. As American society became more jaded thanks in part to the aftermath of WWII, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Cold War with Russia, as discussed in "Mel Brooks, The Producers and the Ethics of Satire about N zis" people felt less invested in big, lavish, extravagant musicals catering to an emotional innocence no one felt anymore, and favored more edgyrevolutionary, counterculture films and anti-musicals like Cabaret.

In classic films from when Walt Disney was alive, most movies were simple good verses evil stories where the villains acted as the evil for the heroes to defeat. In the early Disney Renaissancevillains manipulating teenage protagonists searching for a coming-of-age sense of identity for their own ends also worked, but by the late Renaissance and early Revival, Disney villains had become The Artifact.

By the early Disney Revival, Dr. Facilier and Mother Gothel were the last of their kind. In a number of videos, Lindsay also discusses the end of Disney Renaissancehow audiences got tired of seeing the same good vs evil teenage coming-of-age musical over and over, paving the way for the more unique and subversive Pixar and DreamWorks Animation stories during the Turn of the Millennium. Lindsay in her video on Beauty and the Beast jokingly comes up with BeastForShe referencing the HeForShe movementapplying it to the film's shallow attempts at being progressive."The Battle to Trust Jesus: Trusting Him When You Don't Understand"
Entitled to Have You: This concept is discussed a few times, mostly around films averting it: Lindsay finds that the prevalence of "immature Manchild always getting the girl in the end" is because said Manchild is usually meant to be an Audience Surrogate whose immaturity isn't a character flaw that needs to be overcome, but an endearing trait that the filmmakers believe relates to and represents their audience.
While the Guardians films have some trouble deciding whether Peter's immaturity is the former or the latterboth he and Gamora are ultimately portrayed as "radioactive spike-balls of defense mechanisms" who still have to come to terms with a lot of personal trauma before they can have a mutually healthy relationship.
Also discussed in her video of The Hunchback of Notre Dameaddressing the common complaint that Quasimodo Did Not Get the Girlespecially since the film also values the differently-abled as being equal to everyone else. Lindsay argues that A Esmeralda is not a "sexy lamp" that only exists to be a reward, and B Quasi valuing her friendship but also respecting her autonomy enough to let her go is the difference between him and Frollowho would rather die and burn down all of Paris.
Argues in her Bright and PBS Fantasy video that this is present to some extent in all fantasy and sci-fi stories, whether the author intends it or not. Even if the world and races are all fictional, they're all made by an author who lives in our world and thus has to draw at least some inspiration from our world and how they see it.
She again argues that this is not necessarily a bad thingbut just something that happens and something that creators and consumers alike should try to be aware of. She has no qualms praising the perfect casting of Chris Evans as Captain America. I beg to differ. In the academic Mulveyan sense, " Female Gaze " as a term isn't really a thing, as even if one's to invert the normal trend and fetishize male bodies as with the case of Magic Mike XXLit's still using the same film language and techniques male filmmakers used to film female bodies, just substituting male bodies for female bodies, meaning it technically still counts as male gaze.
We hate their music shows a One Direction music videowe hate their insipid backstabbing, we hate their vanity, we hate their selfie sticks, we hate their make-up, we hate their stupid books and the stupid sexy actors they made famous and their stupid sparkly vampires, and then we wonder why so many girls are eager to distance themselves from being objects of societal contempt.
Discussed and deconstructed in "Dear Stephenie Meyer", where she makes it a point to illustrate that many so-called "strong female role models" can have many elements of internalized misogyny in them as well. Her response to the Convection Schmonvection displayed in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug as she's baffled at the narrative decisions of somehow melting a gold statue and then Thorin riding metal on it.
She often sneaks in several interesting Google Searches in other tabs whenever she displays a website in a video. For her first Beauty and the Beast video, when she first scrolls through the Cracked article to illustrate her point on how pretty much everyone has said that Belle has Stockholm Syndrome, to the tab's left is "lumiere x cogsworth". In The Whole Plate episode 1, as she demonstrates how Star Wars has a large amount of academic papers devoted to it unlike Michael Bay's Transformers, the Google search on this window is "am i a jedi or a sith".
After coining this, she shrugs and directly dares the audience to come up with something better. Near the end of the video, she also points out how the root causes — Hollywood's mentality of throwing money at dying trends nobody wants to see anymore in an attempt to save them until they die smouldering deaths — is still a pervasive modern attitude. A co-host of the show, reacted by saying, "Well, they have great people, just bad leaders," which Graham confirmed.

He later clarified that the comment was directed toward "the Ayatollah", not the people. I've got a lot of opportunity to disagree, but the Constitution, in my view, puts an obligation on me not to replace my judgment for his, not to think of the hundred reasons I would pick someone different I view my duty as to protect the Judiciary and to ensure that hard-fought elections have meaning in our system.
I'm going to vote for her [Kagan] because I believe this election has consequences. And this president chose someone who is qualified to serve on this court and understands the difference between being a liberal judge and a politician.
At the end of the day, it wasn't a hard decision She would not have been someone I would have chosen, but the person who did choose, President Obama, chose wisely.

Ford asserted that, during a high school party, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, covered her mouth to keep her from screaming, and tried to strip off her clothing while she struggled to escape.

This compromise negated both the Democrats' use of a filibuster and the Republican " nuclear option " as described in the media.
