* Her pointing out that for all the flak Disney's ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' adaptation gets for "changing things", it still manages to have some really good points, including pointing out that it's the first adaptation to really explore how abusive Frollo and Quasimodo's relationship is and how Quasi eventually overcame that.

* Lindsay's episode of The Whole Plate on male gaze in the ''Film/TransformersFilmSeries'' is strangely cathartic, since instead of tackling the [[InternetBackdraft often-hotly-debated subject]] of its relation to Creator/MichaelBay's lack of respect for women in his films, she instead goes onto discussing its relation to his lack of respect towards ''men'' as well. Specifically, she calls out how blatantly disdainful he is against his own protagonists by framing them [[LoserProtagonist as either pathetic]] [[{{Jerkass}} or just plain contemptible]], yet still in a way [[ThisLoserIsYou that's meant to be sympathetic and relatable to his own audience,]] [[ViewersAreMorons because that's how he sees them.]] It's both remarkably refreshing to hear and just ''awesome.''

* The "Dear Stephenie Meyer" video takes a retrospective look at the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series, and concludes that while there are indeed things in the books that should be looked at critically, the series and Meyer herself really didn't warrant the [[HateDumb sheer vitriol]] they amounted. Even better is when Lindsay points out the DoubleStandard in how brainless WishFulfillment forms entertainment aimed at males rarely if ever get the same kind of scrutiny that their female-aimed counterparts get.

* How she managed to get every viewpoint in for such a LoveItOrHateIt movie. In order from positive to negative: Nella's literature-loving fangirl > Mara's pride on how it gave kids a voice > Chick thinking it's SoOkayItsAverage and not really giving a fuck either way > [[spoiler: poor Critic, who got bashed for disliking it and learned to keep his mouth shut]].

-->'''Chick''': Am I saying that Agent K should ''not'' have been in the sequel? ''(beat)'' ''[[RhetoricalQuestionBlunder Yes!]]'' You ended his story! You knew the film was gonna be a franchise, if you didn't want him in the sequel, you shouldn't have written him out!



* Got to give one to WebVideo/TheRapCritic- when Nostalgia Chick tried to get out of doing the crossover with someone who was not Todd, by saying that the topic was about Will Smith being a leading man in films, he proceeds to shoot down it by telling her that he watched Smith's RomComs. So he is knowledgeable on Smith's movie and singing career, and perfectly qualified to do the crossover.

** Then in her video talking about [[MsFanservice Megan Fox's character]], she talks at length about how her character is (in the first film, at least) [[SincerityMode "the most well-rounded and worthwhile character in the Transformers movies"]] and has far more depth, agency, and relevance to its plot than its actual protagonist, but is most commonly just seen as a "whore" because it's all undermined by Michael Bay framing her as [[MaleGaze just a piece of eye candy]]. Calling out Bay for treating not only her character, [[RealLifeWritesThePlot but the actress herself]] as a [[DisposableLoveInterest disposable, replaceable object]] just adds to it.

* She demolishes the theory on how Beauty and Beast is about Stockholm Syndrome, while addressing an issue with Disney and their focus on heterosexuality and because people keep focusing on the damn Stockholm thing, they all miss the other factors- how society rewards bullies as long they fit a certain criteria; how otherwise decent people will dimiss or punish those who are nonconformist; and how important it has s for people can see the good in others.
