Dead Beat Film Society

We are the Dead Beat Film Society. Every meeting someone picks an important film. We all watch the film then meet back up to discuss it. Along with a discussion of why the film is important, we analyze the film making, acting, directing, and discuss our personal thoughts and opinions.

What is love! Baby don't hurt me! Don't hurt me! No more!
Join the DBFS as we celebrate Christmas and love discussing what makes a good holiday movie, the different types of love, ugly dudes getting babes, the treatment of female characters, Richard Curtis need to constantly fat shame, our love for Emma Thompson, the surprising amount of nudity, predatory men and the women who work for them (and apparently fall in love with their bosses??), the terrible sequel Red Nose Day Actually, British people, ensemble vignette films, Hallmark movie love, the lost idea of Mr. Bean as the Christmas angel, and a discussion of which holiday deserves an "Actually" version.
So pick out a gift for your mistress and hit play for an in depth Love Actually film analysis!

Shaving Ryan's Privates!
Join the Dead Beat Film Society as we discuss the troops, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg (agaaaaiiinnn), FUBAR, the 45 minute Omaha beach Normandy invasion scene, the pass gore gets in war movies, a WWII movie not about nazis, casual banter and dark jokes in the military, inaccurate shirt sleeve lengths and other military nitpicks, the ethics of the plot, Matt Damon, setting a new precedent for war films with bleached out color palette, shaky cam, gritty realism of the battlefields, unexpected Meg Ryan slander, our Vietnam reboot idea, a belated Veteran's Day salutean, and dragging a typewriter through a warzone with an in depth Saving Private Ryan film analysis!
