Today I'm going to introduce you to some YouTube series that I watch. A lot of these series, I think, actually have some educational value, particularly for--you guessed it--writers! Some are just fun. Most are both. So here they are!
Honest Trailers by Screen Junkies
Most of my favorite YouTube series are about movies: pointing out inconsistencies, illogical points, and other humorous bits. This works well for me because it teaches me about stories and plotting, using something awesome! Screen Junkies is one of the YouTubers that does this. My favorite series by them is their Honest Trailers.
To create the Honest Trailers, Screen Junkies takes movies suggested by viewers that have come out on DVD already and create a trailer of how the movie "honestly" is. Naturally, they are very sarcastic, but they make some good points. Below is one of my favorites of theirs, the Thor Honest Trailer.
How It Should Have Ended and SuperCafe Videos by HISHEdotcom
Another set of movie-critiquing videos is the How It Should Have Ended set, which not only look at logical alternate endings, but at alternate moments throughout the film. Funny, creative, and awesome. I also love their SuperCafe videos, where famous superheroes (mostly Superman and Batman) sit in a cafe discussing movie things. Below is one of my favorite HISHE videos, "How Inception Should Have Ended", and my favorite SuperCafe video, "Who's a Hero."
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Emma Approved by Pemberley Digital
Pemberley Digital began as a side channel for the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, an Emmy awarwinning YouTube vlog adaptation of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice. But after the success of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, the channel continued with Jane Austen adaptations. At the moment, they're doing a vlog-like documentary adaptation of Emma, Emma Approved. The first Emma Approved video is below. To see The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, go to the linked channel.
Movie Sins by CinemaSins
CinemaSins is another channel dedicated to pointing out movie inaccuracies, and it's probably the most intensive. Here's one of my favorites, "Everything Wrong With The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in 4 Minutes or Less." *Language warning*
Teens and Elders React by TheFineBros
The React series by TheFineBros has various people watch various YouTube videos and react to them, in real time. The four kinds they've got so far are Kids, Teens, Elders, and YouTubers. My favorites are Teens and Elders. Below is one of my favorites, "Elders React to Ylvis - The Fox."
Those are just a few of the YouTube series I regularly watch. Thanks for reading/watching, guys, and come back next time for our February humor post! Whoo-hoo!
