I should probably be posting this in the proper movies section, because it'd actually have some appeal to us folks, but given where this is originating from, I'll just have it here.

So for those unaware, The Cinema Snob is a web series where Brad Jones plays the character of a snooty film critic, reviewing exploitation movies, largely horror and porn parodies, but there's also some focus occasionally on action, like the works of Bruno Mattei, or other forms of exploitation, such as nazisploitation. The whole premise of the character is that OF COURSE he's not going to like this sort of thing, with the main inspiration cited for the character being a Roger Ebert rant about Friday The 13th The Final Chapter that was apparently very overanalytical. The movie acts as an origin story for the character, but in an unexpected way:

So I really liked it. It's pretty funny, has a good murder mystery storyline, well made (though obviously for a low budget), and has some good performances. I also appreciated how much it's made to stand on its own, and be accessible. Everyone in it is playing an original character, and the in-jokes are there for the fans, but mostly being a fan of the show meant that I was familiar with the sorts of films and directors that are mentioned because it's stuff the main show has covered. Even the titular character gets a backseat, being just a character in the story the main character in adopting for his purposes, allowing to work as both a prequel to the main series and just a good movie on its own.

Personally, I don’t like such genre of films. I don’t think that’s interesting but I should write an essay on such a film but I am still not going to do this. I’d better ask assignment writing service for help and pay them for it. My time and my nerves are more expensive than an essay, aren’t they? This is just not my type of content.
