I closed it and will never watch another of her vids again. 

 

That's a shame. You're missing out because she does know her stuff, and she's far from the worst offender when it comes to shoehorning annoying comedy YouTube Content Creator gimmickry into otherwise insightful videos. (I mean, we have a whole thread dedicated to Red Letter Media...)

 

Some of her recent ones I particularly recommend:

 

Her Disney film videos: Saving Mr Banks (I've never seen that film but this one is really good) / The Hunchback of Notre Dame / Pocahontas

Twilight and Stephanie Meyer being an acceptable target for fandom hatred

... and her whole series on what the Transformers series has to tech us about film theory (seriously)

Wasn't there's a five minute monologue about how amazing the Hobbiton experience is and how the staff are super nice and that it'll make you feel like a kid again? I think she went out of her way to emphasise that this isn't meant to be a downer about New Zealand.

She had annoyed me sufficiently by then that it felt pretty disingenuous.

There was about 2-3 sentences.
