And make no mistake, some of these people have risen to celeb status (like RelLetterMedia, Jeremy Jahns, Confused Matthew etc.).
They've risen to 'internet celebrity' status, and of the three you mentioned only RLM probably has actual celebrity (in the sense of being signalled out by Ebert and so on). There's nothing wrong with the idea of internet reviews, but it's true there's a reliance on hyperbole (worst/best movies, scenes, etc.) and frankly often facile reasoning (Confused Matthew's reviews often go into petty nitpicking or bizarrely specific complaints).
