Watch Kevin Geek Out on SNOWPIERCER

by Patrick Bromley
It's a new video series from our friend Kevin Maher!

For those of you who don't already know Kevin Maher, he's a writer and comedian whose regular live show "Kevin Geeks Out" is a New York institution. He and I have become friendly over the last year or so when we bonded over our shared love of Tobe Hooper, and he's a voice I really enjoy and respect in the film community. So when he told me he had created his first-ever video (the first of several, I hope), I wanted to make sure to give it a boost.

In this first video, Kevin talks about Ready Player One and its comparisons to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory by finding another dystopian sci-fi movie that borrows heavily from the children's classic. And it just so happens to be one of my favorite movies of the last few years!

Enjoy Kevin Geeks Out!


  1. Let me get the obvious joke out of the way, Captain America eats a baby in Snowpiercer, at least off screen. All joking aside, I really enjoyed Snowpiercer, it's a great social commentary on classism in the guise of a kick ass action movie. Anyway I digress, thanks for sharing the link Patrick, I'll definitely check it out Kevin Maher's review of Snowpiercer, and how it serves as a companion piece to both Willy Wonka and Ready Player One.

  2. finally took the time i watched the video. good stuff, interesting take on a very good movie

    also, Ready Player One is definitely Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory. it's not by mistake they used a remake of one of the song in WW in the trailer for RPO

  3. This was awesome. But who are the Oompa Loompas in Snowpiercer!?

  4. Such an interesting idea for a film with an excellent analogue of life and humanity's struggle for equality or lack there of. Chris Evans is by far the greatest actor of all time.
