Critical Review And New Media

This 70 minute analysis of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is an excellent example of not only film criticism and critical analysis but is also an entertaining example of new media: a hilarious yet educational mash-up using existing media to tell a story all the while utilizing the internet for distribution and buzz.

Anyone who is a fan of Star Wars or anyone who ever wants to make cinema should watch this series.

Another example like this would be "You Suck At Photoshop" that used the familiar "video tutorial" as a vehicle to tell a multi-episode narrative of love lost and a downward spiral.
