PostSubject: How did you come to know of the Cinema Snob?   Wed Oct 05, 2011 6:07 am

How did you first learn about the Cinema Snob? Was it because of a specific Movie or through a website? Was it through a friend og by random?


Personally i learned about the cinemasnob through that website, thatguywiththeglasses. I am a fan of the nostalgia critic, but on his website i saw "Turkish Star Wars".... that title entriqued me, so i watched it and i got hooked on the snob and his reviews of exploitation. He reviewed the most low budget obscure movies ive never heard about, and i loved that.

What's your story?

First I heard his brief appearance in Mendo's Hack Attack recview of Leprecahaun: Back In The Hood. Stopped watching that halfway through, Mendo bored me. Then he briefly popped up in a Nostalgia Critic video, kept going on about Manimal.

I came rather late to the Snob party, 1st full episode I saw was Cannibal Holocaust, which threw me cuz it was structured differently a regular Snob ep. So I had no idea what a regular ep looked like at that time!

Through thatguywiththeglasses.com. The first video I watched was actually the Big Box episode of "The Body Shop". I searched around his area of the site and found the Snob videos. I got hooked after watching a couple of episodes ( I think one of them was also Turkish Star Wars). Been watching it ever since!

I saw the Bruno Mattei show episode for Mondo Erotico. Being a fan of mondo movies, I watched a bit, but it was weirdly structured. I looked to thecinemasnob.com anyway, and the rest is history.

When the Nostalgia Critic puts in other reviewers at times, sure it seems a little corny, but it did help me discover Brad Very Happy. It was that thing he did with Manimal, I forget which one it was exactly.

Anyway, I watched Night Trap (it was the only one I heard of on the page) and liked it, and some other ones, but didn't become the big fan I am today until I found this site.

I watched a few videos back in 07, nothing really caught my fancy so I moved on. Then a year ago, I spotted the review of the Alice in Wonderland porn musical, and was..intrigued to say the least. Started following since.

PostSubject: The Spoony Experiment   Thu Oct 20, 2011 2:23 am

I used to watch a lot of the Spoony Experiment, and when Brad's site went down, Noah hosted some videos for him. At first I was a little hesitant about The Cinema Snob because it was so dark and dirty in comparison to Spoony, but it was great stuff nonetheless.

Found him on YouTube back in the day. I don't remember which Snob video I saw first, but it was one of his earliest: out of the first 10 maybe.

My friend Luna showed me one of his videos.

Took a while but now I love the guy.

Same here.

The first time I saw a Cinema Snob episode was when Noah put a couple of them on his site. Once this site went up, I started coming here.

I remember seeing his video review of Jaws 5: Cruel Jaws sometime back in 2008 when someone posted his review on AVPGalaxy. I started to watch his videos on his Youtube channel but I stop watching them when his Youtube account was shut down. I started to become a fan when he posted his "The Worst Films of the Decade" video on thatguywiththeglasses. back in January 2010.

I was like "He look very familiar" when I was watching his video then I saw his website and started to watch all of his videos. Since then I became hooked and The Cinema Snob is one of my favorite reviewers on the web because I love exploitation and obscure movies.

Being a connoisseur of musical theatre, I came across his review of the Superman TV musical.

Yup, tgwtg too.

I think the only reason I'm still watching is to get that damned image from ET the Porno out of my head. Oh god it was weird... so very, very weird. Maybe the snob will find something worse. He certainly seems to be trying with the new year selection. Maybe I should watch Nukie?

I'd say Jack Nicholson, not Comic Book Guy. Nicholson has a smooth, cool voice, and Comic Book Guy has a nerdier, fat guy voice.

I watch a lot of Web streamed content on my Roku box. There was a mini-marathon of Nostalgia Critic and Cinema Snob on an MST3K channel one day.

Cinema Snob and MST3K, two great tastes that go together!

Through Youtube, I was pulling up old MST3K episodes and he was popping up in some of the related videos. I'm always on the lookout for a new Z-movie gateway! Very Happy

Been watching since the Youtube days. If I recall, I had been trying to find clips from Burial Ground (1980) and just came across his review. Watched his reviews on and off after that, but is was the Black Devil Doll from Hell review that really hooked me.

I also managed to see Game Boys and Midnight Heat on Youtube back before they were both taken down.

Around mid-2010, I was ranting about my affinity for Crystal Pepsi on the internet when a friend sent me a link to one of the CP-related 'Brad Tries...' episodes. I thought it was moderately amusing, and - also being an exploitation/VHS-era nut - I started perusing the rest of his site and became hooked: Brad has such an acerbic yet affectionate wit when it comes to these types of movies, far more so than most other websites who humorously skewer B-movie fare.

I don't know if it's rare that I don't follow TGWTG or the majority of their reviewers at all...they're not quite as catered to my tastes in schlock and soda esoterica. I tend to get lost with the occasional crossovers and references to the site. Neutral

I first noticed him while watching Kickassia a couple of years ago. I found that video to be quite boring, but I did happen to enjoy Brad's character enough to to poke around on the net and discover that he did all of this.

He reminds me a lot of one of my older brothers. They share the exact same mannerisms and sense of humor. My brother passed away a couple of years ago, so watching Brad actually helps me remember some of the best things about my favorite bro. Keep up the good work.

my way of finding him sounds a bit i dunno how to desribe it you decide. i was on IMDB on the Ninja Turtles of May at least during the month of may. the newest video at the time was after i found the site was "Rugsuckers from Mars"

i know that's not the whole title so bear with me. anyways, i was on the ninja turtles forum curious the whole series was on dvd yet. or blu-ray. & i saw a post oddly enough about a Ninja Turtles Porn. i thought to myself What the fuck?

so i clicked on it & the link was active. & so i watched it & i laughed my ass off loving it. & though it took me a bit to find the link on where the link was from. i right away started watching his other videos & fell in love with the site.

cause i just love the dark humor he uses as the snob. & other characters as well. even the lighter episodes. & when summer started i got lucky to watch the start of the midnight shows. & i've pretty much been here since.

I believe I ended up here thanks to browsing through That Guy With The Glasses website and noticing him on there. The reason I stayed around originally because his voice reminded me of 'The Postal Dude' from the Postal video game.

And after that initial reason to stay, I kept coming around because he likes MST3K. Anyone who likes MST3K can't be a bad person in my book. And liking shitty horror movies helps.

By accident.

I may have actually tried searching Porno Holocaust on youtube for whatever reason and his review had me in tears so I had to watch the other ones, and after he stopped using youtube as his main channel, I followed him to his official website.

He's the only video reviewer I follow regularily.
