If you like movies, the chances are you like YouTube too. On a smaller scale, YouTube gives content creators a place to share their talents with the world.
It’s no surprise that movies and YouTube go together well. You can watch the latest movie trailers or even full movies on YouTube. We’ve previously discussed YouTube channels all movie fans will love, but there are so many more. Let’s explore the channels all movie fanatics really should subscribe to.
CinemaSins exists to point out everything you never noticed was wrong in movies. This channel is famous for its Everything Wrong With videos, where the narrator, Jeremy, runs through the entire movie and discusses goofs, plot holes, cliches, logical flaws, or other strange elements. It’s a good blend of actual critique and funny asides that makes any CinemaSins video covering a movie you like a must-watch.
You’ll find critically acclaimed and panned movies alike in the CinemaSins library. Once you watch a few episodes, you’ll get a feel for the inside jokes and tropes that the team hates, such as deus ex machina moments. Years of content make this channel perfect binge-watching material.
Best known for its Honest Trailers series, ScreenJunkies is another movie lover’s dream. Uploads are split between Honest Trailers, which sarcastically lay out a movie’s details and exaggerate its flaws, and other movie-related discussions.
The honest trailer for any movie you love will probably crack you up. Being able to laugh about the ugly sides of your favorite films is great fun. The Movie Fights series and other content make this a well-rounded channel for any movie fan.
3. Screen Rant
Want a bit of everything related to movies? Screen Rant is the channel for you. Consisting of movie theories, bloopers, fun facts, and more, this channel uploads regularly with lots of interesting videos. It’s not as focused on one type of content as some of the other channels, but that’s okay. Start a playlist here and you’re sure to find something entertaining.
Have you ever been disappointed by the ending of a movie? The folks who run this channel seemingly always are. Here, you’ll find all sorts of animated sketches with alternative endings for movies. They’re all done in goofy fun, so don’t expect endings that correct gaping plot holes or anything.
Also on the channel, you’ll find behind-the-scenes looks at the videos, movie reviews, and hero swap videos that mix up movie protagonists. Sit back and enjoy the finales that could have been.
Do you have a critical eye for catching goofs in movies? If so you’ll have a blast with this channel’s videos pointing out filming errors and other mistakes. Since these are sometimes on screen for only an instant, you might not have noticed them on your first time through the film.
Admittedly, some of the “mistakes” here are a bit of a stretch, and they aren’t as enjoyable as CinemaSins presents them. It’s still fun to see how movies with million-dollar budgets can miss details, though.
6. Channel Awesome (The Nostalgia Critic)
The Nostalgia Critic used to have his own YouTube channel, but he’s since joined Channel Awesome. You’ll find lots of content here — it’s not all related to movies, but the Nostalgia Critic is the star of the show. Running with the tagline “I remember it so you don’t have to,” the Critic re-experiences older movies to see how well they hold up today.
If there’s a movie you love from your childhood but haven’t watched in a decade, chances are it’s probably not actually that good. Let the Nostalgia Critic walk you through these movies, sometimes with an extra bit of rage — we think you’ll love it.
7. Couch Tomato
With decades of movies in production, it’s reasonable to suggest that a plot might have been repeated at some time or another. Watch Couch Tomato’s videos, though, and you’ll find that this is more common than you might think.
The 24 Reasons That X and Y Are the Same Movie series looks at the similar overarching plot elements of two films. Seeing them side-by-side, it’s amazing how alike some movies really are. When you feel the need to lament the film industry, this is the place to do it.
If none of the channels mentioned appeal to you so far, Mr. Sunday Movies carries a little bit of everything. It focuses on sci-fi and superhero movies, but features different looks at other movies, too.
You’ll find trailer breakdowns that make assumptions based on little bits of information from new trailers, Easter eggs, and movie reviews. Discussions about which series reboot was best and info on canceled movies are also present. Chances are you’ll find something that piques your interest here, so have a look through the uploads!
Sometimes you just want to laugh at some bad movies. YourMovieSucks exists to show you why bad movies are so awful. You’ll find a lot of “movies so bad they’re actually good” here, along with mediocre big-budget releases.
It’s just as interesting to hear about why a terrible movie fails so greatly as it is to study what makes a great movie such a success. This channel’s videos are also a good way to get a synopsis of crappy movies without dedicating time to watching the whole thing.
10. Chris Stuckmann
Chris Stuckmann has made a name for himself for making high-quality reviews, made better by his obvious passion for film. You’ll find him reviewing the big-budget releases as well as smaller films, giving plenty of variety to the channel. He’s a likeable guy, his reviews are honest, and he’ll keep you entertained. What’s not to love?
