One of the things we try to promote here at Blake’s Dungeon is inclusion — that means everyone! Racial diversity, LGBTQIA+ representation, female empowerment, and anything else we find hasn’t been given the voice they need. As such, when we do our Popcorn Review articles, we are endeavoring to have our reviews written by a diverse cast of people who can best express how well (or not so well) their demographic is represented in the media you’re planning to see. As such, here are some films that came out this year that we haven’t reviewed yet, organized by special interest so that you can easily find something that needs some attention from your unique perspective.
LGBTQIA+ Representation Bohemian Rhapsody Boy Erased Love, Simon The Miseducation of Cameron Post Girl Alex Strangelove Unfriended: Dark Web
African American/Black Representation Overlord Creed II Green Book Unfriended: Dark Web
Asian American Representation Crazy Rich Asians Searching To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
Latinx Representation Instant Family The Second Act
Feminism/Female Empowerment Girl in the Spider’s Web Colette On the Basis of Sex The Second Act
Other Lego Movie 2: The Second Part The Grinch Venom Incredibles 2 The Predator Nutcracker Halloween Ralph Breaks the Internet Christopher Robin Ant-Man and the Wasp Fantastic Beasts 2
If you see a film that’s on our list and you’d like to send us a review, DO IT! Make sure your review is 3-5 pages long, including a full name and e-mail us at BlakesDungeon@gmail.com — use “Popcorn Review: [Insert Title Here]” as your Subject Line, and we’ll know what you’re about! Don’t worry if your grammar isn’t the best — we have editors to make sure every typo is caught and that your thoughts are clear, and we do our best to polish it without changing your intent. If your article makes it into the next issue, we’ll send you one of our Blake’s Dungeon logo t-shirts and a physical copy of the issue you’re published in!
And don’t forget! We’re running a Movie Club on our Facebook page if you’re in the Burbank/LA area and want to come to see the latest films with us!
See you at the movies!
