Five Underrated YouTube Film Channels to Watch
Written by Chiara Rossi • Film Editor • Writer
In the heavily condensed and confusing superhighway that is YouTube, you are bound to miss good, quality content that you never knew you needed. Film channels have been on the rise for the past years and competition is high. Some do not get the love they deserve so here are a few that will be rightfully put in today’s spotlight.
1. Broey Deschanel
With only about a dozen videos out (as of publishing this), this channel has a quirky and approachable feel to their material and is bound to leave you on a binge for all their uploads. They seem to have a feminist-centric attitude about their channel and who would not appreciate that in this day and age? They began this channel back in 2018 and have been putting out good analysis videos since then. Broey Deschanel should be on your list of film YouTubers to check out if you’re looking for something new.
2. Impression Blend
If you want a channel that delves into more than film, Impression Blend will also cover books and TV that is sure to give you variety and more things to get interested in. The host, Marianna, does review videos on all three mediums, has ranking videos, and also some awards show prediction videos. If you like a film that was based on a book and wonder if you should pick up the source material, she can definitely help you out.
3. Austin Burke
Everyone likes a good old explained video. It’s even better if it’s coming from a likeable guy. Austin Burke was originally a Vine user before the app shut down, where he managed to pull in a good chunk of 140k followers. His YouTube channel is currently taking off as well, and it should. You can see the genuine love for film and TV from him and he is sure to be a pleasant watch for those who want to get into Netflix shows and TV.
4. Max Joseph Film Person
Perhaps film Youtube’s friendliest face, Max Joseph is a real breath of fresh air in all the dead seriousness of the film world. Clearly well-versed in the topics he tackles, Joseph creates a happy and positive environment in his channel. He has list videos and awards predictions, and he also occasionally goes live in order to interact with fans in real time. This is something very appreciated by lots of film fans. His outro will surely put a smile on your face.
5. The Oscar Expert
Ah, the realm of awards shows. As controversial as it has always been, it has never failed to have fans and fanatics that never stop raving about it. The channel name is very intriguing in itself, and watching their videos do not disappoint. Run by twin brothers Cole and Justin, the duo showcases their genuine passion for film and awards shows. Their prediction videos are very interesting to watch but the real entertainment is watching them react to nominees of awards shows, which delights viewers and ultimately what fans sign up for in their channel. The two will make you feel comfortable for having big reactions to trailers and nominations because why hide your energy and passion for what you love? They, of course, also offer review and list videos, which will show how well-spoken and thoughtful they are with what they put out. Outside of The Oscar Expert, they have a secondary channel named Raffums, where they occasionally upload comedy
skits. Clearly not a one-trick pony, they are definitely worth more attention than they get. You won’t regret watching, and you won’t regret subscribing.
