“Movies are a vital part of pop culture but are often presented in ways that aren’t optimized for human connection,” said Buzz Feed Motion Pictures head of development Matthew Henick. “It’s so exciting to stream a classic movie like Holy Grail, which has so many jokes and scenes that have become part of everyday conversation and internet culture through memes.”
