* The review of ''{{The Wiz}}'' was filmed and edited within 24 hours, yet looks just as good as his usual work. Roger Corman would be proud.

* His ''Musical/MammaMia'' review is largely him eviscerating the idea of GirlShowGhetto. Namely, he goes out of his way to point out that [[ChickFlick chick flicks]] aren't necessarily bad (he goes as far as mentioning that [[Film/{{Titanic 1997}} one of the highest grossing movies]], as well as arguably [[Film/{{Frozen}} the current highest grossing animated film]], fit the criteria). The real issue with the genre, he feels, is that film-makers feel they don't have to put a lot of effort because it's "for women" and put nothing particularly "threatening" in as a result.

** In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', Tamara-Rey runs off like in the film, and an offscreen voice calls her a Mary Sue right at this moment, showing how stupid that argument is.

** For anyone upset over Evilina's mistreatment in ''Film/CatInTheHat'', Malice getting pissed off (instead of crying and being told to shut up like the former) at Critic hitting her (with the excuse “it's okay, it's just a dream”) and getting out her knife to tell him to stop.

-->'''Critic''': [[Film/PulpFiction And you will know my name is the Lord, when I lay my vengeance upon thee]]. *shoots the scene black* * The end of his review for [[Film/TheGarbagePailKidsMovie ''The Garbage Pail Kids'']], where he probably puts more effort into a few minutes long [[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey 2001: A Space Odyssey]] parody (while displaying a [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic pretty awesome opera voice]]) than a group of assumedly professional group of writers for an entire movie.

** And after all that, we hear a Nostalgia Critic theme song! I expect to hear that all the time from now on! *** The 'Nostalgia Critic Anthem' is by Sad Panda and has been around for at least a few months now. Doug just hasn't used it in any of his videos until now. The full song of course is basically a big fan letter to Doug Walker and his characters The Nostalgia Critic and Chester A. Bum.

* In his review of ''The Cell'', his clear anger at the film using intense child abuse scenes as to show that "[[CaptainObvious child abuse is bad]]". ** The clear implication that telling the audience the SerialKiller has child abuse as a FreudianExcuse doesn't fly at all because your tragic past is not what makes you. Extra bonus? With the Critic's own past, he knows this full well. *** It's both amazing and slightly pathetic when a comedy character on the internet manages to have a more compelling and entertaining FreudianExcuse than a lot of movie villains.

*** Linkara singing a cover of the opening (and closing). *** Nostalgia Chick's solo in "Pretense." ''Damn'', that girl can sing. *** The "guilty pleasures" song. *** Critic and Chick's parody of ''The Show Must Go On'', called "The Review Must Go On". **** New rule: whenever Critic has a breakdown, he must sing his recovery. It always works. The moment where he gets out his jacket, puts it on and straightens his tie is especially epic. *** Brentalfloss's parody of Zidler's rap. *** Hell, {{Phelous}} doesn't exactly have the best voice, but his talent for [[LargeHam hamminess]] certainly qualifies his musical number as awesome. His angry, growling tone also flows surprisingly well with the Critic's operatic style.

*** One more meta: Doug had the balls to let his fans, people he didn't know in the slightest, climb all over his body and pretend to torture him in an occasionally suggestive way. Anyone else would have been scared about letting themselves be too vulnerable.

* His rant against Creator/MichaelBay on the [[DanBrowned innaccuracies]] in PearlHarbor is something to behold. It basically boils down to "If you're gonna make a movie based on one of the greatest tragedies in American history, [[SuddenlyShouting DON'T]] [[LargeHam FUCK UP!]]"
