MOVIES AND OTHER THINGS

Shea Serrano

#1 New York Times bestselling author Shea Serrano is back, and his new book MOVIES (AND OTHER THINGS) combines the fury of a John Wick shootout, the sly brilliance of Regina George holding court at a cafeteria table, and the sheer power of a Denzel monologue, all into one. The book is illustrated by Arturo Torres, who will join Shea in conversation.

MOVIES (AND OTHER THINGS) is a book about, quite frankly, movies (and other things). One chapter, for example, answers which race Kevin Costner was able to white savior the best, because did you know that he white saviors Mexicans in McFarland, USA, and white saviors Native Americans in Dances with Wolves, and white saviors Black people in Black or White, and white saviors the Cleveland Browns in Draft Day?

Another chapter, for a second example, answers what other high school movie characters would be in Regina George’s circle of friends if we opened up the Mean Girls universe to include other movies (Johnny Lawrence is temporarily in, Claire from The Breakfast Club is in, Ferris Bueller is out, Isis from Bring It On is out...). 

Another chapter, for a third example, creates a special version of the Academy Awards specifically for rom-coms, the most underrated movie genre of all. And another chapter, for a final example, is actually a triple chapter that serves as an NBA-style draft of the very best and most memorable moments in gangster movies.

Many, many things happen in MOVIES (AND OTHER THINGS), some funny, others sad, a few insightful, and all handled with the type of care and dedication to the smallest details and pockets of pop culture that only a book by Shea Serrano can provide.
