Awesome / Tamara's Never Seen

Go To

  • In the The Goonies episode, Tamara opening it up with addressing the people insulting her for not seeing a lot of movies, or calling her faking it, and (nicely!) calling them out on the Opinion Myopia, saying she just grew up on different movies than they did. She points it out again in Back to the Future, adding that there'd be no reason for her to lie and there's more than enough comments thanking her for letting them admit they haven't watched these movies either.

  • Even while she does it jokily through her kitty, Tamara ending her review with The Dark Crystal with calling out the body shaming comments she's been getting.
  • In The Fifth Element, while Tamara fancies Leeloo, getting angry at men who creep on her. Also her rant about Dude, She's Like in a Coma, saying the only time when it's only okay is in Sleeping Beauty, and it wasn't when it happened in the original Ghostbusters or this movie.
  • Tamara's video on (non-threatening) hate comments she gets, especially when she snarks on guys who only compare her and Rachel on looks and not funny/acting ability.
  • As much as she adores Back to the Future, Tamara still brings up the sexist themes, along with the attempted rape scene, and acknowledges it was in the fifties but that's not something she enjoys watching.

  • In The Fly (1986), Tamara pointing out that telling people to stop wanting to fuck her and focus on the cats isn't the compliment men think it is.
  • In Blazing Saddles, knowing exactly the kind of comments she'll get, Tamara states that her enjoyment of the film is due to the racism being a satire, and you shouldn't say these things in real life. Also, towards the end, she reminds everyone that Black Lives Matter and don't culturally appropriate for Halloween.
  • In Tamara's Back to the Future Part II review, she's randomly wearing a turtleneck (because she got gross comments about cleavage), but in the middle, herself from eight minutes into the future comes in and tells her to not listen to little boys who try and police her body. Also the cool editing job, as there are two Tamaras and it looks seamless.

  • It's admirable enough that Tamara made her Never Seen video for Ferris Bueller's Day Off despite being very sick, but she also throws in another Take That! towards her detractors by pretending to mock viewers who hadn't seen the Key & Peele sketch parodying the film using the same comments usually directed towards her.
