About Us

Like you, we are big fans of the many YouTubers and their communities that have formed around movies, shows, and fandoms. This site is for you.

From veteran film critics to first time watchers, we present their opinions here in articles with their videos ready to be viewed. Sometimes we present opposing opinions. Other times retrospectives. And there are the 1st Reactions. We'll cover all your favorite types of content here.

We want this to be fun for everyone so we'll stick by a few things ourselves. We only present people's opinions on movies, shows, and fandoms. We do not write about other opinions of the YouTubers outside of this space and we do not write about their personal lives.

Very thrilled you're here, and hope you keep coming back. We're new to this and learning along the way. If you have any suggestions please send them to suggestions@moviesshowsfandoms.com.

If you have a video for us to consider writing about and your channel's content is related to movies, shows, or a fandom please let us know at topics@moviesshowsfandoms.com.
