We are in a Renaissance of film analysis and criticism. One of the most accessible platforms for this latest (and arguably greatest), very diverse generation of film critics is YouTube.

Which one of these YouTube film critics chosen by the members of the IMDb Poll board is your favorite? Or intrigues you enough to experience their thought-provoking (perhaps), often humorous film criticism?

Thank you ElMo! I was trying to think of EWW and would have chosen it if I had remembered.

One of the latest one:
Everything Wrong With Avengers: Endgame

actually they are one in the same....all his postings start with 'everything wrong with' or 'eww', but technically you are more correct in listing it as cinemasins....

Yeah. Pretty sure most (if not all) of these aren't film critics. Even if they mention movies on an occasion.

I am really torn here, because I have a few candidates: 
Serge Bodnarchuk
Brad Jones
Brandon Tenold
James Rolfe
Andrew Saladino (still absent from IMDb, will need to add him, I guess) (a video essay of his I can't stop plugging everywhere)
Cecil Trachenburg 

All of these guys are incredible and their reviews, video essays and anlyses are highly recommended. 

I guess since Rolfe and Jones are more of a filmmakers in my eyes (and some of my favorite directors, to boot), my nomination will go to Cecil Trachenburg, whose web-series "Good Bad Flicks" is a constant reminder that every film has something to say, has a production history which might have affected the outcome drastically and is also just a great source of inspiration for every filmmaker as he goes in depth with all the techniques. Even more humorous episodes on less than stellar movies end in an analysis of said movies, a ton of production information which he dug up from oblivion and his very honest opinion, which always outlines positives and negatives. Bodnarchuk, Tenold and Saladino were also really close.

Wolfgang Schmitt of The Film Analysis. If you need critics with IMDb pages, my second choice would be Every Frame a Painting.
