You may have heard of the satirical YouTube series called "CinemaSins" that calls out the many flaws in movies.

Well the director of Kong: Skull Island, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, has slammed the series and the way it mocks movies via many tweets. He feels it ruins the art of films altogether.

Vogt-Roberts posted on Twitter his thoughts on the matter. He feels CinemaSins dumbs down the art form of movies and thinks they are better than the creators themselves.

Even Star Wars: The Last Jedi director, Rian Johnson, is unhappy with the YouTube series' latest effort. You can read Vogt-Roberts' statement below.

Things like Cinema Sins simply suck the life blood of other people and are often just wrong about intent or how cinema works. It's terrible. Anyhow. I just wanted to point out why these videos are infuriating. They're often just wrong or think they're smarter than you. I love film criticism and I love reading negative reviews if the author makes compelling and well written arguments. It just makes me sad they get so many views / contribute to the dumbing down of cinema as they syphon other people's work for their own gain.

There are many points on Kong: Skull Island that the director defends. He doesn't seem to like CinemaSins' continued criticism of calling the dialogue "sh**ty" and how he gets many points wrong.

CinemaSins used to point out proper flaws in films, but now the person running the series makes negative comments on just about anything.

If you watch his recent videos, you will notice they are much longer than the ones he used to do in the past.

Anyway, videos like CinemaSins and the Honest Trailer series from Screen Junkies are just a part of the modern day YouTube culture.

People just have to make up their own minds whether or not they like a movie. You should not always rely on certain third parties to dissuade you from watching a movie.
