Flushing Artifacts Down Plotholes – Muddled Conflict in Sword & Sorcery Movies - Mighty Thor Jr. (James R. Schmidt website)
I am guesting posting! This one discusses how three recent S&S movies (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword ; Conan The Barbarian ; and Hobbit: Battle of the 5 armies) lured us in with conflict based on a magical artifact, only to sandbag us as the stories finished.
Thanks to James R. Schmidt for the invitation.

Also, keep an eye/ear out. Francesco La Manno runs an Italian website for Sword & Sorcery and is considering translating it: https://hyperborea.live/
