* AssPull: Film Brain ''snaps'' [[{{in-universe}} when he sees]] the nonsensical twists in the ending of ''The Riddle''.
* AudienceAlienatingPremise: [[{{in-universe}} He notes in his "Projector" review]] of ''How I Live Now'' that it's about a not-very-likable character trying to get back to someone who is their ''[[KissingCousins cousin/lover]].'' He also notes that it flopped in his native UK, probably because of this.

** ''The Condemned'' seems to do it for him, as well, judging by the fact that he actually interrupts his summary of the movie to deliver a several-minutes-long rant about the [[{{In-Universe}} film's]] [[{{Anvilicious}} hamfisted]], [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]], and just plain [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop unfortunate]] message.

* MisBlamed: [[{{in-universe}} In response]] to fan complaints, Film Brain and Lordhebe said in an interview that the first review with Professor Celluloid was filmed the week ''before'' Spoony unveiled Dr Insano, but not released until the week after, making this inevitable. Coincidentally, they also filmed the review for ''Transmorphers'' the same week Spoony reviewed its sequel on a whim.

* PutOnABus: The end of his ''TheJazzSinger'' review seems to be this way with him "going on a vacation". He came back a few months later when RealLife slowed down a bit for him.

-->This is a mainstream comedy [...] that features loads and loads of Thomas Middledick... ''sorry'', [[LampshadeHanging that was a Freudian slip]].

* TheOner: Criticized in a scene in "One Night Stand" where Wesley Snipes's character walks down a street and exposits to the camera. He states that doing this serves no real purpose as the scene only serves as blatant (clumsy) exposition, and it (along with addressing the audience) just seems awkward and out of place with the rest of the film. He even notes that the movie couldn't even pull of a oner as it's noticeably cut in the middle, presumably because Wesley Snipes get through the whole thing in one take.

** On {{Twitter}}, Buck asked if reviewing ''[[Film/{{Transformers}} Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen]]'' on ''Bad Movie Beatdown'' would make him a hypocrite, since he gave the film a decent review when it came out in 2009.

* OutOfFocus: Prof. Celluloid has largely been absent since season one and has even disappeared from the opening sequence as of the post-''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights'' version of the season three opening. This only made it more surprising when [[TheBusCameBack he shows up to give Film Brain 3D glasses in the]] ''SpyKids 3D'' review.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny:
** Subverted with ''[[Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg Epic Movie]]'' when Silas shoots Mr. Tumnus,[[note]](Matthew does laugh at this, though he acknowledges the timing was off.)[[/note]] but then it stops being funny when [[OverlyLongGag he keeps shooting]].
** Played straight with a cameo by Creator/StephenKing in ''Monkeybone'', where Creator/EdgarAllanPoe mocks King for being a fraidy cat, or, to quote Mr. Poe: "King, you pussy!"
** ''Twice'' in ''Film/NightAtTheMuseum II'': one with the inch-high Roman soldier running furiously through the grass on the White House lawn, and then the camera pulls back to show a human's eye view of the lawn, which looks completely undisturbed. The second time, the inch-high Roman soldier goes into an epic, slow-motion leap clearly spoofing ''Film/ThreeHundred'' only to come down and viciously attack a full-sized bad guy's boot.
** Acknowledged that the head-butting scene, following the line, "nobody wins with a head-butt" in Film/PaulBlartMallCop was the only funny scene in the entire film.
** When they make a shout-out to ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'' in ''Film/TheMarine'':
--->"See, it's funny because it's Creator/RobertPatrick and he was the T-1000! ... Okay, ''I'' thought it was funny, so ''shut up.''"
** He even highlights two jokes in ''Breaking Wind'': one being the "Noobs" emerging from the water when wearing swim fins, and the other being about vampires unable to control their thirst (although he admitted that the latter quickly went into OverlyLongGag territory).
** In his review of ''Film/JackAndJill'', he said the only funny jokes were the one about Al Pacino having only one Oscar and the part where Pacino sees his embarrassing Dunkin Donuts commercial and demands all copies be destroyed.
** He admits in his review of ''Film/{{xXx}}'' that the opening bridge stunt is genuinely impressive.
** Zig-zagged in ''Film/ChristmasWithTheKranks''. The part where Tim Allen's character is trying to get a plastic snowman on to the roof making it look he's hanging the snowman is somewhat funny to Film Brain. He is initially amused by the scene where a criminal's being busted directly against Blair and Enrique's window, but it's ruined for him when it cuts to [[DontExplainTheJoke another character hoping that Enrique's having a strong first impression of the country.]]
** In his review of ''Film/{{Moonraker}}'', he admits that the "[[DoubleEntendre I think he's attempting re-entry]]" line is one of his favourites from the entire franchise.

* BrickJoke: In his review of ''[[Film/TheHangover The Hangover: Part II]]'', he consults a thesaurus to look up the word "again" in attempt to make his commentary less redundant and is pleased when he finds the word "recurrently." He then uses the word later in the review.
