Whether you’re a horror film buff, a YouTube fanatic or just someone who appreciates fun banter on the Internet, you’ll enjoy watching the web series Grab-Bag Reviews. Hosted by father Mike Smith and daughter Meg Smith, the two charismatic critics discuss their eclectic collection of terrifying Asian films in a cozier version of the format popularized by Siskel and Ebert.
What Grab-Bag Reviews lacks in production value, they make up for in pure charm. To select movies for analysis, the pair each reach their hands into a gargantuan bag filled with DVDs and Blu-Rays, randomly pull out a film and then improvise reviews on the spot. The most enjoyable part of the show, however, is when the two recount how they come across each movie, reminiscing about their summer adventures and naturally conveying a loving bond that induces smiles among viewers.
