moviebobMovieBob will be calling into Desert Bus at 6pm 7:15pm PST on Sunday, November 16th.

Writer, film reviewer and host of Escape to the Movies, The Big Picture, and MovieBob: Intermission on The Escapist. He has a love for early 80’s and 90’s video games and ripping apart bad movies. A focus of his is to give analysis of gaming culture and the industry in a style that is similar to a college-lit-class style know as “close reading”, also using overlaid imagery to support his points.

Along with his work on the Escapist, Bob also hosts The Adventures of Game OverThinker, a comedic series that combines video game news and commentary. Blurring the lines between reality and video games, OverThinker is a story driven analysis of gaming culture. This series led to the creation of Overbytes on ScrewAttack, with more of a focus on culture and tropes.

Bob has also written a book titled “Super Mario Bros. 3: Brick-by-Brick“, in which he deconstructs the game in the form of a “novelized Let’s Play” while analyzing the cultural significance and history of the Mario Bros. franchise.

He is also very active on his blog and twitter.
