Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week we remember the 90’s Ska explosion, get it in our heads to knock over an arcade, spend our summer skating in the city, take a detour in Ukraine, and think about Elvis Presley’s impact beyond just his music. Read More »
