Title: JonTron's reviews of bad films
Post by: Dolan on December 21, 2016, 09:21:05 PM
One internet reviewer who got me interested into looking at the worst films in existence was YouTuber reviewer JonTron. Though his channel is predominantly video game related, I enjoy the reviews of terrible film he'll occasionally release.

So far these are the terrible films he's covered:

Birdemic: Shock and Terror - youtube.com/watch?v=gzV8Q2fsN0o

Foodfight! - youtube.com/watch?v=BGql8sKjJwA

Titanic: The Legend Goes On - youtube.com/watch?v=ghOKU8D-lMY&t=9s

The Star Wars Holiday Special - youtube.com/watch?v=eL5gMWcl9FU

A Talking Cat!?! - youtube.com/watch?v=m76z5mgv5_A

The Skateboard Kid - youtube.com/watch?v=QsWlKOwqlD4

Dark Dungeons - youtube.com/watch?v=subQrEPKytA

Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf - youtube.com/watch?v=l2zAR8vbfIw


Anyone else here have a favorite of his reviews?

Coincidentally, some time after creating this thread, JonTron's released another new comedic review of another bad film, this time of the 2004 Christmas film Christmas with the Kranks.

I just watched the Howling II video and this guy is pretty funny.  He puts a lot of effort in his review videos.  (Probably more than the people in the films he's reviewing actually did.)

I think his movie reviews aren't as good as his gaming ones.

That has become one of my favorites of his, first favorite probably Birdemic. The production quality of his earlier videos are vastly lower in quality than his most recent mainly because he's since grown his fanbase.

I think his movie reviews aren't as good as his gaming ones.

True, which is probably why I first started watching him, like for his Bubsy review.

My original favorite JonTron video was his review of Plug and Play games.
He then topped that with the Bootleg Disney games. Then I had the realization that the best material for Jon is bootleg stuff.
A big part of his humour comes from reacting to things so ridiculous it seems insane that they even exist. Bootleg stuff, especially from Asia, delivers just that.

I think his game reviews are better because he's got a better eye for flaws in video games. Gaming is clearly a big part of his life, especially considering he was once the co-star on Game Grumps and discussed game theory a lot.

Does anyone else think Jon sounds a bit like Mike Wozowski from Monsters Inc?

Little bit. Jon's voice is deeper though.
