About this blog
The idea for Pop Cultural Studies comes from people I have talked to in my studies of literature – some people maintain the notion that there is a contrast of high culture and low culture. Some professors I have encountered scoff at the idea that television, film, video games, comics, etc. are nothing more than mindless entertainment. I disagree; and think that these things deserve a closer look. Pop Cultural Studies strives to take an elevated, more analytical look at popular culture.If you notice, I try my best to not just write the things that you’re likely to find on other blogs – reviews, top tens, and other “List-icles” (but I’m not above speculation). Instead, I aim to go deeper.

Lucas Snyder is a guest contributor to PCS, who knows damn well that they stopped making good Star Wars movies after 2005. His column, Citation Needed, addresses the real issues in Hollywood, such as how Disney is paying critics to praise their movies, or how the Rick and Morty fandom is severely misunderstood. He was inspired to write media criticism after watching the music videos of Jake Paul and reading the film reviews of New Yorker film critic Richard Brody. His favorite movie is Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
