When it comes to critical analysis, reviews and essays are the best ways to break a film down to explain why it is or isn’t good and why you should see it or skip it. But as essential as a good review or essay is, they, no matter how excellent the critic is, will always be boring compared to a list. There’s just something about lists that get people excited. There are dozens upon dozens of successful websites and YouTube channels who’s sole purpose is to get clicks off of people’s inexplicable need to read shit in list form.
While Cinefix is technically kind of one of them, they’re exempt from criticism due to the fact that their lists are always top notch. They don’t really do top tens anymore but when they did, they were among the best things on YouTube. I chose to highlight their Fight Scenes list but honestly, I could’ve picked any one of them. They’re all amazing.
What did you think about the video? Have you seen any of the other Cinefix lists? What are some of your favorites?
