** On that note, the Critic explaining why going the ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' route with Maleficent doesn't work--the original Wicked Witch of the West was a two-dimensional, thuggish, HateSink with no likeable or sympathetic qualities, so depicting her as an intelligent, charming, charismatic woman who was blamed for everything because 1. [[FantasticRacism she was different]] and 2. [[WellIntentionedExtremist she didn't always know how to fight back]] is actually compelling. By contrast, Maleficent was ''already'' [[EvilIsCool intelligent, charming and charismatic]], so trying to pull the same thing with her doesn't work.

** His sum-up, saying you can totally be (and should be) offended at whitewashing, but you should also recognize that you've probably let it (or height-washing, or cis people playing trans characters, or able-bodied people playing disabled characters) slide in the past. The point is to get better, and to use media to inform of more opportunities -- even though things will likely remain complicated for a long time to come, if Creator/DonaldTrump's presidential candidacy, and with it his anti-Mexican, anti-Muslim agenda, is any indication.

* The ''Scooby-Doo 2'' review has a mystery involving the Critic trying to figure out who gave him the DVD. Like the movie's mystery, it's freaking obvious whodunit, with an [[ObviouslyEvil obvious villain]] and [[RedHerring people who are attempted to be shown as the villains but don't fool anyone]] . [[spoiler: At least, that's what the Critic wants you to think. If you pay careful attention, you'll notice this isn't actually the case with 3 easy to miss clues (First, the DVD case changing, with Jules (Tamera) having the case Roger tried to give the Critic in her shirt, second, after an anvil tries to crush the critic, Jules is pushing a pair of scissors underneath a couch with her foot, and third, while Roger tells them to "write this down", referring to the culprit's name, and says Roger over and over, Jules does write something down... her own name. This entire thing is just to give the audience what the movie did not, an actual good mystery, which the Critic succeeded in doing perfectly.]]
