YouTube Channel Review

Hopping into a movie’s universe can often feel like trying to assemble a puzzle without the box art to guide you. For instance, if your first Marvel movie is one from a later phase, good luck understanding all of those callbacks, jokes and even characters. And even if you are invested in a franchise, you still might not catch all of those subtle inserts.

You may have better luck checking out New Rockstars.

The channel is best known for its breakdowns of movies, TV shows and trailers, pointing out “every detail you missed.” The many people who represent the channel cover much of the most popular entertainment, from Marvel and Star Wars movies to the Super Mario and Indiana Jones franchises. They’ll also theorize about what events may mean for the future of each series, and they’ll provide their opinions on other pop-culture-related questions.


New Rockstars just may help viewers learn more about their favorite series. Even for the most hardcore fans, the channel will likely point out a hidden fact or connected bit of lore that they may find interesting. And there should be something said for the channel consolidating a movie or show’s lore in one video so viewers won’t need to waste time searching for it themselves.


Language is a constant on the channel. Though f-words and s-words are censored, we hear other swears, like “b–ch,” “d–n,” “d–chebag” and “a–.” In one video, a commentator’s shirt contains the word “slut” on it.

We also see some sensual content. One video theorizes whether or not a character had sex with another. Other videos theorize about deeply problematic or sensual shows (such as Rick & Morty and Game of Thrones) and, naturally, sometimes talk a lot about those very issues.  We hear references to pornography, explicit sexual acts and genitals. In one video, we see the shadow of an animated man’s genitals. In a video about a Star Wars movie, a commentator jokes about adding genitals to a droid.

And as mentioned, channels that typically have a lot of negative adult content are analyzed in detail. These shows have jokes about suicide, drug use and instances of blood and gore.

A commentator jokes about a couple stories from the Bible in an irreverent manner.


While New Rockstars may show you just how many intricate details the directors of your favorite movies and shows have added to their creations, the channel itself has some unavoidable pitfalls that make it a harder watch for young audiences. While some of these are based on the entertainment the channel breaks down, such as the content-filled Rick & Morty, that still won’t negate the swearing present in other videos.

Though he was born in Kansas, Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics and hermeneutics. He doesn’t think the ending of Lost was “that bad.”
