David Zaslav is the perfect example of everything that is wrong with Hollywood and has no business running Warner Bros. Discovery. Is it too late to undo the merger that landed Warner Bros. at Discovery Communications? Action after action on account of Zaslav is just sickening and infuriating. As someone who loves movies and has great respect for the work that that Harry, Sam, Albert, and Jack Warner built together, watching everything happening just makes…"David Zaslav Is Bad For Warner Bros. And Hollywood"
The Bill of Rights is one of Warner Bros.’ many patriotic shorts about American history as the studio did its part in the lead up to WWII. “Destroy the Bill of Rights, and freedom will pass from America as surely as day passes into night. Scorned in many hands, assailed even here, it is the final safeguard of the individual!” The short film starts out in 1774 in Williamsburg, Virginia before cutting to scenes of…"The Bill of Rights: A Warner Bros. Patriotic Short"
The Declaration of Independence is an Oscar-winning short film and one of Warner Bros.’ many patriotic shorts about American history. The film offers a short glance at the Continental Congress’ meeting during the summer of 1776. As soon as they adopted the document in July 1776, their lives were at stake.

While the studio refers to 100 Years of Warner Bros. as being four different documentary specials, it feels like…"100 Years of Warner Bros.: A Deep Dive Into Studio History"
On the eve of Warner Bros. marking the studio’s 100th anniversary, it breaks my heart to read that David Zaslav wants a Harry Potter series. I wish I was going into the anniversary by getting ready to schedule something about the studio’s anniversary. After all, 100 years is a pretty big deal. Instead, I’m taking the time, yet again, to write another open letter to Warner Bros. It’s an unfortunate trend that started with the…"Warner Bros.: An Open Letter to David Zaslav"

In the days following the cancellation of Batgirl, it became more than apparent that racism and transphobia played a role. Prior to logging offline for Shabbos, I started seeing social media leaking the film’s plot and test screening reviews. As a transgender woman let alone film/TV critic, I couldn’t be more surprised by what I saw. The fact of the matter is I don’t like that my gut instinct was right: racism and transphobia were…"Batgirl, Racism, and Transphobia"
