There’s soooo many people who actually can make money and a career out of making videos on YouTube and it kind of blows my mind at times. Mostly I’m jealous of how comfortable they are on camera and on what they bring to the table in terms of ideas and thoughts; but that’s of course if I actually like what they have to say. I think I’m a generation away from the ones that go to YouTube (etc) as their prime entertainment feed. ANYWAY, old person shouting at clouds rant is ending now, as I just wanted to post about Jenny Nicholson.
I think I first saw a video of hers when for some reason I was looking up stuff about the movie Tomorrowland. I had written a post about how much I actually didn’t hate the movie despite many of the reviews coming out that basically were like, MEH. Well, Jenny Nicholson was no fan of the movie and she indicated exactly why, and I was blown away by how funny and precise she was in her criticisms.
She can make long-ish videos, but they are entertaining. As I found out, she is very much into the geekier side of entertainment, meaning she likes things such as Star Wars, Westworld, superhero movies… you know, basically stuff that I like too.
What I find particularly great is that she is really funny and clever yet doesn’t go overboard with production values (not shade, I promise), so the humor and commentary shine through. I’ve especially liked her recent videos on Star Wars, and there are a lot. I’ll just link to a couple of the most recent as I completely agree with her on The Last Jedi:
As you can see, she does have a need to collect toys, like that GIANT Porg. Am I jealous? Maybe.
I can’t say I loved Rogue One. I enjoyed it a lot and it definitely has some stunning scenes, but the soundtrack and lack of the Star Wars fanfare at the beginning really annoyed me. Anyway, I am certainly on board with most of Jenny’s comments regarding Rogue One.
I guess I could just post every video she’s made, but that is silly. I just had to share my appreciation for this wildly hilarious woman. You may find yourself going down the rabbit hole of her other videos – don’t worry, the water’s warm here in YouTubeville. Don’t resist. It’s easier this way.
