* The Creator/{{Nigahiga}} video "How to Be Emo" makes jokes about people getting pleasure from hurting themselves (one scene has the emo characters in a knife fight where they stab themselves instead of each other), and makes emos out to look like obsessive masochists who either have zero emotion or are exhibiting the ComicalOverreacting trope. It was found hilarious at the time it was released in 2007, but has been scrutinized and criticized under new light in the coming years, which is why it has the most dislikes out of any of the old ''How to be…'' videos.

** Likewise, in the review for ''[[http://duckyworth.deviantart.com/journal/DT-The-Elf-That-Rescued-Christmas-2011-420025994 The Elf That Rescued Christmas]]'' [[SincerityMode (and yes,]] [[TyopOnTheCover that wasn't a typo on our part)]], he blames [[BlindIdiotTranslation 'bad dubbing']] from the script about Santa coming from Lapland instead of the North Pole. Those living in Finland (where the film was produced) believe that he actually lives there. To be specific, on a mountain called Korvatunturi, located in Savukoski.

* [[http://duckyworth.deviantart.com/journal/DT-Pokemon-Giratina-and-the-Sky-Warrior-2008-383582483 Duckyworth]], while reviewing ''Anime/PokemonGiratinaAndTheSkyWarrior'', had one of his complaints be upon Giratina's lack of appearance, appearing in only 5 of the first 43 minutes of the film, giving more focus to the '[[SmallAnnoyingCreature annoying green flower rat]]' [[UngratefulBastard Shaymin]] instead for most of the film. In Japan, there is a bigger focus upon the more lighter, cuter aspects of a franchise, whereas in most of the merchandising, mainly cute Pokémon take up the spotlight, and the anime, while there is more of a focus of the more 'manlier' aspects in the western culture. Hence, the cuter legendaries tend to get a bigger focus in these films.

* ThatGuyWithTheGlasses: Most of the reviewers on the site are American and are frequently discussing super hero movies in fullest detail. To people outside the US who are less endeared about super hero movies this can often come across as being very obsessive over something that is generally children's or in the very least early teenage entertainment. (For that matter, there are plenty of Americans who share that attitude, although they are understandably more inclined to keep their opinions to themselves.) Of course, in the U.S.A. most young people grow up with these types of comics and thus feel very attached to them.

** Being from a more secular country, British viewers can get confused about the LampshadeHanging of Santa Christ apparently being offensive.

* BrowsHeldHigh: Oancitizen's review of "Exterminating Angels" starts with him mentioning that the French are "famously blasé when discussing sex", then showing a clip from Film/{{Amelie}} where Amélie is seen counting couples orgasming at the same time. He is perplexed that the film is rated "R" in the US, but only the equivalent of an "G" rating in France itself.

** It's says a lot that the TGWTG reviewers literally ignored Creator/StevenSpielberg and Creator/PeterJackson's ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTintin'' movie, despite reviewing every other major Hollywood release. Franchise/{{Tintin}}, which is an institute in Europe, is an international bestseller across the rest of the world as well, except in the U.S.A. where it remains a cult favorite. This might explain why the only TGWTG reviewer who actually discussed it was FilmBrain, who is British!
