The Ultimate Fanboy, 'Voicing the Rage of Fanboys Everywhere, One Movie at a time'
16 February 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Unlike most internet personalities Eric Rodriguez (shortened to 'Erod'), The Blockbuster Buster is a passionate fanboy who knows his knowledge of various Pop-culture properties, and like most internet reviewers tends to keep an open mind when watching a certain movie. He is called 'The Blockbuster Buster' for he specializes in reviewing movies that were designed to be 'blockbusters', movies intended to make a lot of money within the Hollywood studio system, mostly adaptations, occasional remakes, reboots, etc. Thus his tag-line 'Voicing the Rage of Fanboys Everywhere, One Movie at a time' pretty much fits the picture as to what he does.

Looking back at most of his earlier videos from 2010 it's pretty clear to me he gained a lot more confidence as both a writer and a reviewer as the show progressed over time (first appearing on YouTube then Blip TV and now Daily Motion). His reviewing style as the character; 'The Blockbuster Buster' is both arrogant and hilarious at times which makes up for one very entertaining low budget reviewing show. Although I'm more impressed by his insight and knowledge on various pop-cultural bits and pieces, even when he'll talk about a film that he thinks is not worth 'busting' he'll do a 'Top 10' or a 'Pros and Cons' treatment just to weigh some of the good and bad elements against each other. I've probably gained more insight on his own research and knowledge than I would by just watching the films he reviews (which even include films I wouldn't care to watch personally, unless I decide to before seeing him tear it apart). Another impressive segment he does each year in between seasons of 'The Blockbuster Buster' from December to February, is his 'Honest Reviews' insightful, honest and very well scripted videos of various films, TV shows and cartoons.

It doesn't necessarily matter where viewers should start with The Blockbuster Buster, as I think he talks a lot more confidently and insightful now than when he first started back in 2010. The reviews are low budget and have the production to that of guerrilla film making, but I guess internet users are so into that nowadays it's hard to even argue since so many other personalities like The Nostalgia Critic do the same thing. I might also add I kind of get annoyed when Erod tries to incorporate a sense of story-line into his review series. It doesn't necessarily add anything special to the videos or anything to get excited about. Just having a quick skit or set of supporting characters played by other actors or Rodriguez himself seems like enough of an entertainment value to me especially on this internet platform.

Lastly I don't always agree with everything Erod may say about certain things, but I really like the guy's reviewing style mixing arrogant comedic charms, clever special effects gags, skits and insightful pop-cultural knowledge he brings to his reviews. He really is the 'Ultimate Fanboy', so if there's any sort of Blockbuster; Hollywood has produced you weren't necessarily satisfied with, trust Erod The Blockbuster Buster and his trusty hammer; Lucille to fix up the problem when he reviews the movie(s) himself.
