He also has a website where he posts all of his reviews, including several which do not appear on his YouTube channel.[1]

Later in 2010, Adam created the YourMovieSucks website, with the YouTube channel YourMovieSucksDOTorg following soon after on June 1, 2010.[3] The first video was uploaded the following day (shown below).

On February 28, 2015, YMS uploaded the first part of his review of the anti-bullying film Cool Cat Saves the Kids (shown below left), with the second part being uploaded on March 28, 2015 (shown below right). The popularity of the review influenced director Derek Savage to re-edit his film in order to correct several of the flaws featured in the review. Those who purchased the film after seeing the review noticed these changes and commented on it on the YMS subreddit.[10] Adam later talked to Savage, whom later released both versions for purchase under the titles of "Original Cut" and "Director's Cut".[11] As of May 2015, the only site where one has the choice between the two versions, as well as the option to buy them together, is on the furry sex-toy site Furry Dakimakura[12]
