Com WordPress Reviewer Header- Jill2

Jill Bearup

Review Style: Short form video direct to camera

Review Topics: Pop Culture, Books, Movies, TV Series

Will Appeal If You Like: Lindsay Ellis, Geeky pop culture, in depth analysis in bite size quantities

Why You Should Watch Them:

Jill’s series “Stuff You Like” is a show dedicated to nerdy and geeky analysis of various media. Sometimes it is looking at why the dialogue in Star Wars Ep 2 doesn’t work, or a look at Zuko from Avatar The Last Airbender, or Mad Max Fury Road. Her topics are as varied as the various hair styles she tries. They are short videos, most lasting an average of 8 minutes, and help give you a different perspective on various topics.

 

 

Com WordPress Reviewer Header- gigguk2

Gigguk

Review Style: Voice Over Short Form Videos

Review Topics: Anime

Will Appeal If You Like: Glass Reflection, Team Four Star, Comedy videos, Sarcasm, First impression videos

Why You Should Watch Them:

Gigguk has a wit and sarcasm that just makes you laugh out loud. He clearly loves anime but is not afraid to pull it apart and make fun of the tropes, story and even the fans. His reviews are surprisingly analytical and I often find myself going off his recommendations when looking for new anime to watch. You will know after watching the first video if you will be subscribing or not but his content is worth a watch.

 

 

Com WordPress Reviewer Header- The Unusual Suspect2

The Unusual Suspect

Review Style: In depth analysis videos

Review Topics: Movies and Video Games

Will Appeal If You Like: The Nostalgia Critic, Il’Neige, Comedy,

Why You Should Watch Them:

Not many reviewers take the time to insert themselves into the films they are reviewing, which is why The Unusual Suspect is very unique. His comedy writing is absolute gold and the visual and cutaway gags are always hilarious. He also as mentioned will insert himself into various scenes that will definitely to make you laugh. Each review goes for an average of 45 minutes but the time will just fly by. Check him out!

The NSCL

Review Style: Short form voice over analysis

Review Topics: Cartoons and Anime

Will Appeal If You Like: The Nostalgia Critic, Gigguk, Glass Reflection, Comedy

Why You Should Watch Them:

These reviews are done in a very clever manner- you get a 3 second review, a 30 second review, and then a 300 second review. It helps give you an understanding of what you are in for with whatever topic is on the block. There is a good mixture of positive and negative reviews and some surprising results from shows you think will go in one direction but don’t. He analyses both classic cartoons and anime so depending on where your interests lie, check out on of his videos and see if you like what you hear.

 

 

Com WordPress Reviewer Header- musical hell

Musical Hell

Review Style: Voice over analysis

Review Topics: Musicals

Will Appeal If You Like: Jill Bearup, Musicals,

Why You Should Watch Them:

Have you ever wondered what happens to all those terrible musicals that get made? Well they end up in a very specific part of Hell and our demonic host Diva is required to go through each case file and dish out the appropriate punishment. No musical is off the table, regardless if it is an animation, big blockbuster or made for TV Disney special. Each review goes for about 20 minutes and the sins that get racked up make it a delight to watch. Definitely check this out if you are a musical geek.

 

 

Com WordPress Reviewer Header- silver quill

Silver Quill

Review Style: In depth episode analysis, Animated Voice Over

Review Topics: My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic

Will Appeal If You Like: Comedy, MLP,

Why You Should Watch Them:

If you don’t like MLP you might be thinking giving him a miss, however I would encourage you to still give this series a go. Silver is a very charismatic reviewer who uses animation to review episodes of the show. His recaps are often humorous and gives you an idea about what each episode was about. He is also not shy of pointing out any faults which is why he is an excellent reviewer and you should give him a go.

 

 

Com WordPress Reviewer Header- mad cyborg

Mad Cyborb 2552

Review Style: In depth Analysis/ Short form voice over videos

Review Topics: Films & Video Games

Will Appeal If You Like: Australian Humour, Sarcasm

Why You Should Watch Them:

Imagine being a Cyborg and forced to sit through a plethora of weird movies and video games? Imagine having no idea how you became a cyborg but you suspect it has something to do with Twilight. Unit 2552’s reviews are both informative and funny and he has two different series, the long form videos which go for about 40 minutes and his short form voice over videos titled “What The Hell Did I Just Watch” which go on average for 4 minutes. Check out his series and give him a subscribe as he deserves a lot more than he has!

 

 

Com WordPress Reviewer Header- Diamanda

Diamanda Hagan

Review Style: In depth episode and movie analysis

Review Topics: Exploitation Films, Religious movies, Amateur Productions, Doctor Who

Will Appeal If You Like: Troma, LGBT Films, Doctor Who, Horror, Gore, Violence, Nudity

Why You Should Watch Them:

Diamanda Hagan is a supreme god ruler of Hagastan. She is a sadistic evil dictator who has an endless supply of faceless minions which she takes great delight in shooting and torturing. As that intro suggests, the movies she watches are not usually considered “mainstream”. She looks at the weird, the exploitative, the gruesome and the terribly cheesy. Her style, topics and character will not appeal to everyone but if you like the weird and the B-movies, she is someone you are going to want to subscribe to.
