Summer Reruns week continues with a sampling of the best guest posts we’ve had over the last 12 months. (I’m excluding a few gems from the last two months, waiting to see if they stand the test of time. You should check them out yourself!)
The Dark Inquisitor: The elements of Dostoevsky in Chris Nolan’s The Dark Knight.
The Transdimensional Fraggle Threat: Extrapolating from empirical video evidence, it becomes clear that Fraggles can warp through time and space.
Just Say No to Wonka: Viewing the Golden Ticket winners through the typology of substance abuse.
The Kitty’s Journey: Joseph Campbell and Friskies: The cat with a thousand faces, or: the most epic cat food commercial EVAH!
The Bi Chick Always Rings Twice: Basic Instinct and Feminism: Warning – contains images of Michael Douglas’s “O” face.
Evidence of the Female Divine in Transformers: The Movie: The 80s cartoon movie, that is. Unlock the Matrix!
Give a shout out to your favorite guest post – whether listed above or elsewhere in the catalog – in the comments. And if you think you have what it takes to join these ranks, check out our submission guidelines and e-mail us your pitch! We’re nice people, we swear.
I might be biased in considering Canon to the Left of Them: The Star Wars Expanded Universe and The New Testament http://www.overthinkingit.com/2010/05/05/star-wars-new-testament/ eh?
One of my favorite was the analysis of the Obama ad campaign, “Girls Say Yes to Boys Who Say Yes to Obama.”
And the Zombieeconomics one was awesome.
And y’know, speaking of submissions… Ahem.
