Funny!
21 April 2011 | by chips-19See all my reviews

Phelous is a very funny show. He is a lot like the Cinema Snob but reviews a wider variety of films. He has dry humor that is hilarious and some of the riffing is on par win mst3k! My favorites include Troll 3, Army of Darkness, Santas Slay and Night of the Living Dead 3D! One thing I think could be improved is that, like the Nostalgia critic, some of the videos drag on too much. Ironically, his review of the film "Birdemic" drags on the most yet that was still one of the best from him. One thing that sets him apart from other reviewers is that his reviews are also kinda like Youtube Poop! Like in the Case 39 review with the random Billy Mays sound clip! Overall, I really like this show.
