The Shadows of the Past is an online Video Review Show hosted by a guy called The Shady Reviewer. Inspired by other reviewers like Il Neige, The Unusual Suspect, and Film Brain, Shades (as he like to be called) reviews mostly mediocre movies. With his more positive outlook on movies and his sarcastic tone, Shades takes a look at the best (mostly) of what the last 20 years have to offer. So long as it fits into his schedule. You can find his videos on YouTube here.
