* SuperLuigu: This goes back a ways, but Bob having his followers join the ScrewAttack forum to vote in the "My Vids Don't Suck" contest in 2008 or so, ensuring that ''The Game Overthinker'' was the winner, regardless of what the actual ScrewAttack g1 audience would have voted for (this was years before ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'', when SA content was confined to the site and ''Game Trailers'').

* ImpudentInfidel: In his Really That Good video about Titanic, he goes on a ten minute rant about how the backlash against the movie was purely motivated by sexism and dismissing every possible criticism of it as so invalid that ''the people citing them must be lying'' one by one. Stilted acting is allowed in this genre and cannot be criticized according to him, just to give one example. He then throws in one line at the end that he's not calling you, the hypothetical viewer who doesn't like the film, sexist. It's a blatant "I'm not racist but..." attempt to avoid responsibility for his words. Just to make it worse he's ''explicitly'' projecting the reasons school-age Bob didn't like the movie on to everybody else and sees no problem with this. The whole thing comes out of nowhere, runs on circular logic, and is offensive as hell. Even if you agree with the broad strokes of his point (that at least part of the movie's bad reputation was resentment at the success of a female-targeted genre movie) it's a serious DontShootTheMessage moment.

* {{Kingbacon}}: I used to be one of the few people who had no qualms with MovieBob. I like his snarky and in depth analysis of pop culture and nerd behavior. However, I will never forgive him for saying what he did in his episode ''JUNK DRAWER: GAME ON'', where he suggested that the only difference between console, handheld, and PC video games and the interactive bile that is App gaming are buttons. As if to say Apps COULD ever, SHOULD ever, or WOULD ever replace actual video games!

* GZillafan77: in ''Film/TheExpendables'' review, he states that [[FanHater only machoo idiots would like it, which he claims are the worst kind of people.]] He also makes blanketed statements on way he dosen't like it. Only that the jokes aren't funny and the action sucks. The whole thing could be stated as "Film/TheExpendables sucks and you suck for watching it instead of Scott Pilgrim!"

* whunt: His Really That Good series is a great idea. Sometimes movies are so hyped new audiences have the fresh experience lost on them. However, Bob blew it right off the bat with his ''Spider-Man'' video on the topic. Not only do I disagree with what he said about the casting choices and the love story, but he also fails to provide many counterarguments and just gush over his clear bias, ignoring the movie's flaws and only nitpicking superficially what was wrong with both installments. There is no address of valid criticisms like SeinfeldIsUnfunny or how many other films were able to one-up the Spider-Man aesthetic and feel even more like comic books. I haven't even watched the rest. I think there could be a decent case as to why Spider-Man and other films were Really NOT That Good, but Bob doesn't even consider that possibility.

* Vexer-I still like Moviebob in spite of me strongly disagreeing with a number of his reviews(I.E. Batman Vs Superman, Man of Steel, Amazing Spider Man 1 and 2, Pixels, Expendables, Transformers 1-3, Green Lantern, etc) and opinions(I.E. his statements regarding the retake ME3 movement). But by far his worst moment is his Big Picture video on 90s comics where he pretty does nothing but whine and bitch about RobLiefeld the entire time. Look I know the guy's a controversial figure and has his flaws, but that video crossed the line from distaste for his material into outright personal hatred to a rather disturbing degree. He also insults people that actually *gasp* like Liefeld and the other Image guys, which just makes him sound like a condescending jerk, hopefully he's learned since then.

* CoCage: The review of ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014''. Bob does the same thing he did in his reviews of ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan 1 & 2'', [[BlatantLies saying that he never held any]] [[BiasSteamroller bias]] towards the new movie. This is his bullshit at its finest, because of all his disdain for the movie is in Bobís previous blog posts; long before the film came out. The whole ninja turtles are aliensí rumors being the start. He then goes on to say itís worse than ''Turtles III'' and the ''The Next Mutation'' (big YMMV). There is some huge contradiction, because once again, in a previous blog post/Big Picture episode he said that the third movie should never be mentioned considering how lazy and bad it turned out. The worst part is him adding or making up flaws that werenít in the movie. He goes on to say April got too much focus and was horribly played by Megan Fox. The former is not true, as she and the turtles get nearly an equal amount of screen time, and the latter is once again, YMMV. The movie does start a little slow and I would have preferred someone else, but Fox does a decent job. The other is an exaggerated flaw of Michelangelo always being ďhorny for AprilĒ. It is true Mikey is always the jokester, but the only time he usually puts the moves on April is when itís not a serious scene. Even then the other turtles tell him to knock it off, just like in most other continuities. When things get serious he gets his act together. This is hypocritical considering Donatello is guilty of doing the same thing in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012''. Always trying to impress April and hugely crushing on her. Something a lot of fans got tired of by end of the first and second season. For the record, I don't care much for the new Spider-Man Films and am neutral about Michael Bay at best (''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' being the exception), but Bob, if you are not going to bother giving a movie you don't like from the start a chance, donít lie and make shit up. Seriously, his review comes up as a Bay hating checklist and ends with him saying that heís done with being nice to the director. Not to mention acting like a whiny little prick for the film not being like the previous movies. Seeing this video, he is no longer a serious movie reviewer or a video game commentator in my eyes (even back then I had my doubts). This video is just a testament to everything wrong with him.

** StormKensho: Bob's "Heavens to Metroid" video, which was the video he made defending the notorious ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'' from its critics, had great potential to be a polarizing but fair video, going over the game's merits while also acknowledging known criticisms of the work while giving his own take on them. What did it turn out to be? Well, to paraphrase Bob's arguments: "If you don't like Metroid Other M, it's because you're a xenophobic feminazi who can't stomach Samus taking orders from a MAN!" That summation could qualify as a DMOS by itself, but the absolute and most disgusting nadir of the video, the moment where I could no longer count myself as a MovieBob fan, was when he attacked the superb MetroidPrime series[[note]]the most critically ''and'' commercially acclaimed games in the Metroid series[[/note]] because they were First-Person Shooters, which are "everything that's wrong with the gaming industry." While he's not entirely ''wrong'' in that regard, the MetroidPrime series is an example of FPS done well[[note]]with excellent and minimalistic writing and gameplay that pushed the series forward while retaining the feel of exploration and discovery that made the 2D Metroids so popular[[/note]]. And to lump those superb games in with the likes of VideoGame/CallOfDuty, VideoGame/{{Battlefield}}, and other shallow FPS games simply because they share a genre is not only ridiculous and disingenuous, it's also ''downright prejudicial and moronic''. Bob, I get it: You're being intentionally provocative with your content as a means of drawing attention to yourself and making money while also expressing your opinion; But when you're actively slandering a series of games that are widely considered to be ''among the best games ever made'' in the Sixth Generation if not overall[[note]]Games that are among the many reasons why the Nintendo Gamecube was able to hold its own and are fondly remembered by even the most caustic of internet critics such as ''[[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]]'', one of your own colleagues at Website/TheEscapist who was ''relentless'' in his takedown of Other M[[/note]] because the game you like doesn't stack up, you're just going to make yourself look like a complete and utter fool.

* jai137: Recently that n his X-Men apocalypse review, he states that all previous X-Men movies were bad(except First class). While he is entitled to his opinion, it completely contradicts his earlier review of X-Men:Days Of Future Past, where he said it's a good movie. Just another place where he keeps contradicting his own reviews. It's like he hated the previous ones, but couldn't bring it out to say it until a crap sequel comes out, then he lets out his hate. Be prepared for a Star Wars review where the movie is bad, but he'll just say "it's JJ Abrams, it was always bad."
