    Hi. I wanted to write a looong time ago already (during the last monster madness, because I don’t understand:

    What’s the point of doing a video, with pictures only? It’s so unattractive. Why not use clips from the movies you are reviewing again? Oh now I remember when I wanted to write you: When I saw your “The Ring” Review. I was hyped, because I liked the film very much. And then this. =/

    Can it still be a copyright issue? What about “Honest Trailers”, which is also a critic somehow? How about all the other Reviewers on youtube, where they talk up to 1,5h about a movie and showing many scenes from it? I just don’t get it. The Monster Madnesses before were so much better. It’s just stupid to hear sentences like “His acting/voice is absolutely amazing,” and then cannot see/hear an example. =/

      Too much work I guess. But I agree, it’s like a habit from when monster madness was EVERY day. But now that it’s much more light, they could revert to clips like before.

      It’s a copyright thing. Last year James started making all of his videos YouTube-friendly, which means he has to be a lot more careful with showing clips from movies and TV shows to avoid the content ID system.

      I imagine it helps him reach a much wider audience but it can hamper the videos quite a bit.

        Thanks for the clear up because I was wondering the same thing why just photos and not clip like before…..

    I saw “The beginning” of course, but had no idea about the companion shooting of “The Dominion.” Interesting!

    James, you weren’t kidding about your hangup with pronouncing ‘bury’ properly. I know you want to pronounce it how it is spelled, but that simply isn’t correct English. It’s pronounced ‘berry’ and has been for centuries. Otherwise, you might as well get hung up on how ‘tomb’ and ‘comb’ are pronounced differently as well.

    personally i never liked any of these movies and have always thought the original was extremely overrated, example- in the original movie the kid spins her head completely around and isn’t the least bit harmed, i know she’s possessed but its still the little girls body the demon is using so wouldn’t that have killed her? i always thought that was stupid and made no sense.
