Christopher Stuckmann (born April 15, 1988) is an American film enthusiast who specializes in reviewing movies on YouTube, though he does have his fair share of other content, mostly related to video games. He has grown to become one of the most popular figures of the site's film community, and is both an approved Rotten Tomatoes critic and member of the Critics Choice Association.

He first got into film criticism in his teenage years, but has been loving films for his entire life. He cites Roger Ebert as his chief influence for the former, and credits the experience of watching Signs in theaters as a child to his passion for filmmaking. In his twenties, he unearthed the community of film critics on YouTube, and the rest is history.

In 2014, he was added to Channel Awesome, but parted ways with them in April 2018. His YouTube channel reached the million-subscriber milestone on June 20, 2017.

While Stuckmann had been writing and directing shorts and features with friends and family as early as his adolescence — including a series of Indiana Jones fan films with none other than himself as Indy — he began a more public filmmaking career in the late 2010s (barring an unfinished short in 2013). As of now, he has released two short films: the horror-comedy Auditorium 6 (2017) and the comedy-drama Notes from Melanie (2019). While the former has only been shown through film festival screenings, the latter was released on his channel for free public viewing.


In July 2021, it was announced that he had signed with Paper Street Pictures to write and direct his debut feature, a horror film titled Shelby Oaks based on the Paranormal Paranoids, a fictional mid-2000s U.S. paranormal investigative team. The film is slated to enter production later in the year. That same month, he announced that he would be retiring regular movie reviews with graded scores, instead shifting towards giving unscored reviews for movies he wants to draw attention and support to, as well as videos tailored toward people seeking information on making films. However, he eventually began giving unscored reviews of new releases as well.

While he has a handful of social media accounts, several of them haven't been updated in a while; he is most regularly active on Twitter.
