* His [[MotorMouth summary]] of ''Theatre/HenryV'', ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'', ''{{Theatre/Hamlet}}'', ''Theatre/LovesLaboursLost'' and ''Theatre/AsYouLikeIt'', all in ''thirty seconds'' to the tune of the William Tell Overture in his episode on KennethBranagh's [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]] adaptations really needs to be heard to be believed. His little bow at the end is well-deserved.

* Oancitizen was able to find meaning and theme of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' and explain in a clear concise way. JesuOtaku was very impressed. Then the film's end pissed him off by its utter insanity and that made JO happy.

* His fiftieth episode is a work of art in general, but this line in particular was awesome.
-->'''Fan:''' I love your stuff.
-->'''Oancitizen:''' Hey, thanks man!
-->'''Fan:''' I just don't get why you hang out with [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses those losers]] all the time.
-->'''Oancitizen:''' Haha, '''fuck you''', they're my friends.

-->'''Kyle:''' It's the sort of modern art shenanigans that would cause Strawman A to yell "My kid could do that!", and cause Strawman B to yell "Well ''your kid'' didn't think of it first!" And... actually, [[TakeAThirdOption they would both be wrong]]. Klein didn't think of it first: [[OlderThanTheyThink the Russian Suprematist movement experimented with the beauty of solid color in simple geometric shapes fifty years before Klein made his mark]]. And your kid actually could ''not'' do that, because your kid can't invent colors. This guy did

* His analysis of [[{{Defictionalization}} Klingon Hamlet]] of the play's Klingon view of it as a {{Dystopia}}n drama... then leads into a pretty good discussion of how TranslationConvention works with the more common languages in the world.

-->'''Oancitizen:''' "Jean-Claude Brisseau makes an erotic thriller by asking women to masturbate on camera for him. He gets punished for it. So he decides to make a film exploring his feelings about it. Okay, makes sense, tough time in his life, probably wanted to think it through for a while. But then he makes a movie, full of [[AuthorAppeal male fantasy porn]] [[FridgeHorror for which he definitely harassed even]] ''[[FridgeHorror more]]'' [[FridgeHorror actresses]], to answer questions about why this situation arose. And after all that [[ItsNotPornItsArt soft-core soul searching]], the answer Brisseau gives boils down to 'It's not ''my'' fault they love me so much. I just [[TheCasanova exude this warm charm]] that makes them open up and get all emotional and'...[[{{Angrish}} gah!]] You know, I don't know if anyone in this film is meant to be sympathetic, but it's certainly not [[WriterOnBoard this man]] who took his very real and very valid accusations of sexual harassment and turned them into a masturbatory fantasy. Jean-Claude Brisseau... '''[[Prec isionFStrike fuck you.]]'''"

** Neatly dissecting the UnfortunateImplications of anti-democratic thought in the hawked Anti-Stratfordian theory in the film, which states the Tudor line could have continued...due to ''incest''. And just to drive the point home, he shows a clip of [[Series/GameOfThrones Joffrey]] as he sarcastically intones "All hail Prince Tudor."

** His dissection of the film's use of yellowface, including rebutting the common argument from the film's defenders that the film also had plenty of whiteface. He even shares how he came up with a quite convincing argument for what the filmmakers were going for that justifies it...only for the whole thing to be invalidated when he found out Tykwer and Creator/TheWachowskis' first choice to play Sonmi-451 was the very white Creator/NataliePortman.

* Kyle's ''Melancholia'' review resonated so strongly with fans that hundreds of them started posting to Twitter, Tumblr and various other social media sites about it, praising Kyle for doing an outstanding job of reviewing and analyzing films in a genre that he loves and making the films and the reviews accessible. Almost all thanked him for speaking so openly, so realistically and with such depth about depression. Many stated that they had been struggling with depression for years and that they had never seen anyone speak so honestly about their illness. Some said that Kyle had given them hope for the first time in ages because they could see that someone out there really ''did'' understand.
