'Lino At The Movies' Reviews The Year's Biggest Films To Hilarious Effect

A new YouTube channel is distilling last year's biggest movies into one-minute reviews, most of which have little to do with the films themselves.

Lino at the Movies, a channel made by YouTube user Paul Laudiero, features Laudiero's Naples-born father discussing some of awards season's hottest movies in the same way your grandfather would (like he had never actually seen the movie at all). Spoiler alert: "Gravity" is a perfect example of why you should not buy Chinese missiles?

Whether he's boiling the plot down to the barest simplicity ("'The Great Gatsby': If you do get fixated about a woman that lives across the lake, just don't drink and drive") or disregarding it altogether (did you know "The Avengers" was actually about a guy named Antonio? Lino did), Lino's reviews are often more enjoyable than the movies themselves. So check out the clip above and then head to the YouTube page for more just in time for Oscar season.
