The beauty of websites like YouTube is that you can take an idea and run with it, and even build a community. One such community is a group of Average Joes who review movies. These guys bring us weekly videos telling us whether or not to spend our money in the theater. About three years ago they took their channels one step further and brought us the YouReviewers Awards! The idea came about when the guys from Schmoes Know (Kristian Harloff, and Mark Ellis) contacted their friend and sometimes collaborator, Jeremy Jahns and decided that they were disappointed with the Oscar nominations. So they put together their own show, invited several members of the YouTube reviewing community to come along, and it was a huge hit! A movie awards show for the people, by the people.
This year’s awards were split into 4 ‘episodes,’ 2 were posted on Jeremy Jahns’ channel and 2 on the SchmoesKnow’s channel. The show starts, like most award shows do, cheesy as hell opening sketch!! In this case, the guys think they are the Avengers, which begs the question, which one of these guys is supposed to be Scarlett Johansson?
Now looking at the 3 hosts, I have to say that Jeremy looks and feels like he eats Charisma Flakes for breakfast everyday! We have been fans of this guy for a while and all you have to do is watch one of his videos to see why! Also, it’s good to see that he’s not just a bust with arms Meanwhile, the Schmoes kind of give off that ‘used car salesman vibe’? You know what I’m talking about? Sorry guys!
Just like real award shows, the Youreviewers Awards have presenters (other reviewers) give out each award, in a way that encapsulates their reviewer personality. Nice touch guys! And just like REAL award shows, Leo got snubbed again, sorry buddy! A nice touch the guys brought to the award show is providing commentary on the winners of the awards; see who agreed with the winners and who didn’t. The YouReviewers also added their own spin on the categories with such gems as “Shocked It Didn’t Suck” and the “Biggest Stink Pile Of The Year.”
Overall, the YouReviewer Awards were super entertaining & if you are a movie fan, check out the winners and see if you agree!
