Bottom Line: There are a lot of film critic shows out there today, a lot of them are good but Brad wins the dark horse competition hands down. He has a near encyclopedic knowledge of exploitation film culture and manages to convey it with enough bite to be funny without so much bile that he alienates his audience.
The Cinema Snob LOVES himself some classics of arthouse cinema and goes to sleep at night dreaming of the films of Fellini, Kurosawa, Godard, and Bergman. But what happens when this pretentious snob is given the task of reviewing low budget exploitation flicks of the past?
When you’re doing movie reviews your gut often tells you to make them way, way too long. Brad manages to edit himself really well, cutting the videos down to “Internet length” without losing any of the wit. (Pacing 4)
Exploitation films make great source material, and the snob makes good use of it. Even when he covers modern films as he started to do recently, he does so with a strong flair for storytelling. (Storytelling 4.5)

Almost every movie Brad reviews I want to go out and see. He always gets the highest honor I can bestow, I’ve watched every single one of his videos. (Watchability 5)
