Screen Rant is a website started out in 2003 and is a part of ThePremium, a series of websites/channels that covers pop culture (video games, TV shows, and movies). The site primarily makes news on movies and TV shows without sugarcoating, hence their first slogan "SciFi, TV, & movie news without the sugar coating".

Why They Suck

  1. They produce a ton of clickbait videos and we mean a lot, which is typical for ThePremium.
  2. They frequently overuse every single images of Riley from Inside Out in their video thumbnails, to the point where it's an obsession like as if they like her for no reason at all.
  3. From 2014 until 2016, they kept making "Adult Jokes" videos over and over again, which always had the same jokes, mostly the Frozen "foot size" joke, which gets really old fast.
  4. They heavily pander towards SJWs. For example, they wrote an article about how James Bond should be a woman in a new film rather than creating a Bond-esque female character like Daniel Craig suggested.
  5. They even had the audacity to mock Asians with proof being the thumbnail of one of their videos: "10 Popular Cartoon Rip Offs That Actually Exist".
    • Also, the "knock-off" (which is a SpongeBob one) is actually a YouTube parody, not a Chinese ripoff, which shows how brain dead the team is.
  6. They often make a lot of videos and articles about subjects they clearly know nothing about and do little-to-no research at all.
  7. Like other channels owned by ThePremium, their thumbnails often steal art from other users without credit.
  8. They're addicted to Disney and other popular animated properties.
  9. Terrible and lazy animation parodies of movies with jokes similar to Netflix's Big Mouth. ("Coincidence? I think not!" - Bernie, The Incredibles)
  10. Most of their movie reviews (such as Star Wars, MCU films, DC, and etc), are nothing more than mere opinionated statements that are rather pretty biased in general, even though if they tend to present it as an accurate statement, it's pretty obvious that they didn't really go with what their accurate thoughts are instead they relied on a fanbase or just some random commentary by a user.
  11. They constantly make whiny blogs for a little-to-no reason at all.
  12. They plagiarise a lot of videos [1]
  13. In one article, they claim that manga “is just as political as anything published” by Western comic book publishers, specifically Marvel and DC. Which not only is trying to defame the Manga industry, but is hypocritical in the way that Manga fans know better than that.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Most of their videos are very informative.
  2. The pitch meetings are super funny.
  3. The website itself is decent.
