have you ever watched someone on something and didn't pay much attention to the person you're seeing because you're too invested in the thing you're watching, and maybe weeks/months/years pass by and you've moved on to a new thing but decide to watch that past thing again for nostalgia's sake, and realize that the person you didn't pay much attention to back then is the same person you're now invested in? And then you burst into tears?
That's what happened to me when I rewatched Nostalgia Critic's editorial on Sleepy Hollow
. In the opening, it's a parody on the horror slasher film Halloween
, and uuuuuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh That's JonTron. I've seen this opening so many times and I never knew who he was. Not until I got into Game Grumps (to be honest, though, I really love JonTron's solo videos more). But I never saw the opening again until now. And now I know who he is. And he was on Nostalgia Critic. And I'm like in tears right now because dkfjdfdksajfadlkffjkf JONTRON AND NOSTALGIA CRITIC
On a different note, I have discovered another critic on Youtube that I freakin love to death right now. He's called the BlackCriticGuy. He is so great and I just love hearing him talk. He really likes anime and does really good reviews of any anime good or bad. And when he sees the anime as "bad", it's sincerely bad, but even then he still manages to find some kind of gem (or pretty looking sea shell that's not worth much but is nice to look at) that makes it not entirely unwatchable. I also really like his top 10 best/worst boy/girl anime characters videos, because when the character is bad it's mostly because they are extremely selfish, have little to no redeeming qualities to them, and/or feel no remorse for the things they do wrong. That says a lot about the critic right there, that he's a really good guy. Plus I love how he gushes over his top favorite female characters based on how nice/forgiving they are and how beautiful they are inside and out. NNNUGH JUST LET ME TAKE YOU HOME WITH ME BLACKCRITICGUY WHY CANT THERE BE MORE MEN LIKE YOU
I love listening to all these critics because I really love hearing people talk about the things they really like and have a complete understanding of the topic, instead of watching people sitting in front a camera ranting about how the things they like are better than everything else and everybody else's opinions are wrong. With that said, I'm just gonna list some of my personal favorite Youtube critics. These are people that review anything from movies/tv shows, to anime, to video games:
Nostalgia Critic: omg if you haven't watched any of his videos you should right now. It doesn't even matter which one you watch, they're all so good.
Doug Walker: Doug is the same guy who portrays/created Nostalgia Critic, but if you watch his personal reviews you'll see a vast difference in the way he reviews movies, but it's still just as enjoyable (especially his Twilight reviews, I was pretty freakin surprised by his reaction to those godawful films).
Nostalgia Chick: just NC with b00b5 instead of a pen15? PFFT! Far from it! Probably my favorite video of hers is her Top 10 Guilty Pleasure movies, oh man she's great to watch in that one.
Todd in the Shadows: I never knew how much fun it was to watch a video of a guy reviewing, not movies or tv shows, but pop songs. Especially a guy that we don't even see, it's just his silhouette. But that's what I love about his videos, I have no idea what he looks like but that doesn't even matter because all that matters is the review and more than often I can either agree with him or say "hey, to each his own, I still love you though".
CinemaSnob: Lol I freakin love him (plus I kinda ship him and NC together a tiny bit because of Paranoia
). Oh and to any Beatle fans reading this, I highly recommend his review of the Sgt. Pepper movie (omg the bee gees why).
DouchebagChocolat/Demolition D: I've already talked about him in this fan art I drew:
BlackCriticGuy: omg I've already said all I could up above please just look him up on Youtube and give his channel a look through he is so beautiful.
