10 Movie Reviews Better Than The Movie Itself

Those rare moments where a critic surpassed the artist.

After a highly anticipated movie disappoints you, there used to be little solace to be found after the fact. You were left to just ruminate on it and discuss your displeasure with some unassuming friends.

Well, not anymore, as now people have the ability to pop onto YouTube, see a review for that disappointing movie in which a person perfectly verbalizes ALL of those negative feelings into an (often) lengthy, well-written breakdown of the entire film.

It doesn't matter if it's a major blockbuster that was in theatres worldwide or a micro-budgeted flick you hadn't heard of that the reviewer somehow hooks you into still checking out, there's a distinct sense of artistry in dissecting a film in an impressively entertaining way.

The best ones are never just about dumping on a movie or talking about how good it is since that can quickly get repetitive. Instead, these examples will find some creative ways of criticizing the movies, but they always add a little something else to enhance it.

For this list, we'll look at reviews that break films down to a simplistic level, both in straightforward and/or in-depth ways. There may be skits, there may be recurring gags, and there's usually a quickened play-by-play of each movie's events, just so the viewer doesn't get lost.
