I love that this guy is making money off CinemaSins videos. CinemaSins is obnoxious.

As you all know, I am quite passionate about media and media criticism, so finding this was cathartic for me. I've hated CinemaSins for a long time because they substitute snark for criticism and it is not okay, because people watch and share these videos and think they're clever for actively ignoring what's happening in film.

Never really understood the fun in the silly nitpicking. Like, I find the Onion entertaining because (1) It's satire ("Ha ha, hmm"), (2) most people by now know that the Onion is comedic, offensive to everyone and not just one, and (3) consistently delivers quality content.

This is just like, hey let's watch a movie and nitpick every single thing. I do like that this guy calls out that they aren't even really watching the film or doing research, just making wild claims.

Yeah, and that's the point. If you're going to do criticism, do it. Also like that he called him out and showed that he says the same wrong shit in his reviews as he does his Sins videos.
