With "Alien: Covenant" in the News, Here's One of My Favorite Pieces
 
This is a piece back when I participated in "The Great Villain Blogathon".  I've got another blogathon coming:  "The Favorite Director", where I will be looking at "Dr. Strangelove" from Stanley Kubrick.  It's in a draft stage right now, and should be here by the end of May!
Tier Benefits
Supporting Actor
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
Access to my Patreon feed and the community, where I will be posting short, off-the-cuff thoughts on whatever movie topics occur to me.  This is your ticket to interact with me on Patreon and guide the direction of my writing.  You also earn my eternal gratitude and slight Karmic realignment to offset your plethora of misdeeds.

You may not think so, but just like there are no small parts, there are no small pledges. 

Come on, it's only a buck!
Lead Actor
$3 or more per month 1 patron
Access to extra tidbits of information for each review I write on Plot and Theme.  When writing reviews, I always have observations that just don't make sense to include in a long-form review.  These could include: comparable movies, other key contributions from the filmmakers, discussions of behind-the-scenes stuff, awards buzz, and so forth.  Think of it as a cherry on top of the sundae that is my full review!

Screenwriter
$5 or more per month 1 patron
You get to suggest a film for my monthly patron-sponsored review!  I’ll throw all suggestions into a poll at the end of the month.  The winning film gets a review on Plot and Theme.  This will be a monthly reward, so you get to suggest crazy or cool things each month, and I’ll be certain to give a shout-out to the winner.  One condition:  it has to be a real movie (1 hr+, narrative or documentary).  No 90’s-era VHS scams or homemade exploding varmints movies.
Plus previous tiers.

Become a member of the Plot and Theme merchandise club!  Every 3 months you remain a patron, I’ll send you some overpriced swag with cat spit on it emblazoned with the Plot and Theme logo.  T-Shirts, shot glasses, coffee mugs, tumblers, refrigerator magnets, bottle openers, etc.  You don’t have enough stuff already, and you definitely don’t have enough stuff with the Plot and Theme logo on it.
Quantity limited because shipping hundreds of pogs doesn't sound fun.

I’ll become your own personalized movie recommendation and talking points service, facilitated by text message.  Not sure if you should see Movie A or Movie B?  Scrolling through Netflix for the last 43 minutes and tempted to just watch Futurama for the 20th time?  Text me and you'll get my obviously correct opinion! 
It's hard to keep up with the world of movies, and since I'm doing it anyway you can take advantage of all the stupid things I know!
Plus all previous tiers.
