** He starts off his re-review of ''Disney/TheLionKing'' with a list of things he actually liked about the film, namely the animation, the soundtrack, the strong opening, and the fact that the film defied the studio's expectations by making a lot of money despite limited marketing. He also re-assesses his opinion on some of the characters, admitting that Pumbaa is a decent character and that Timon was actually [[JerkassHasAPoint justified in his reluctance to save Simba from buzzards.]]

He stopped producing videos in 2015, and while he stated in late 2016 that he might be creating videos again, he feels that most of his original work hasn't held up. He is open to re-reviewing the things he previously reviewed as long as no-one asks him to re-post the originals.

* BiasSteamroller: He does NOT like the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse at all. More specifically, his dislike of the MCU is bigger than just the films themselves (though he thinks a majority of them are terrible). Specifically, he hates how the MCU works in a broader sense and the movies placing a higher priority on fitting into the universe of films rather than being good films on their own merits. In particular, he believes ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', ''Film/IronMan2'', ''Film/{{Thor}}'', and ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' are all not only awful films, but had no interest in being good, and only cared about hyping and introducing the characters for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. Matthew has been much more positive about the Phase Two MCU films, giving high praise to ''Film/IronMan3'', ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' and ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'', while also being complimentary towards ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', but his problem with the way the MCU works still exists.

** After catching some heat for getting… upset about Stephen Spielberg in his ''Film/MinorityReport'' review, he made a point of praising aspects of Spielberg's direction in ''Film/TheWarOfTheWorlds''.
** Similarly, after criticising Roger Ebert in the same review, he praised Ebert's take on ''Film/BladeRunner''’s two different cuts (they're both good, and you should watch both and make up your own mind).

** After savaging ''Literature/NoCountryForOldMen'' as the new worst movie he's ever seen, he makes sure to start the final video on it by telling the Coen Brothers how much he loves their other work.

** In his review of ''Film/Titanic1997'', while he feels that [[Creator/BillyZane Billy Zane's]] performance is boring and by-the-numbers, he admits that Zane did just fine from an acting standpoint. He also heavily praised the iceberg collision scene.

** He's corrected himself on past mistakes regarding anime only to commit future ones and then lampshade those mistakes to the point where he rehashes what he said when he first started his fan requested reviews of anime: he just doesn't get it.

* SpotlightStealingSquad: A large part of his criticism of ''Film/KillBill'' was based on the fact that an inordinately large part of the first film's running time was devoted to the backstory of Lucy Liu's character, whom he did not consider to be at all important to the film.

* FollowTheLeader: Another CausticCritic. While some of his reviews do go after soft or non-controversial targets, he gets his name from doing negative reviews of well-liked movies through a scene-by-scene analysis instead of reviewing the work as a whole. His negative reviews of ''Disney/TheLionKing'' and ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' earned him no small amount of hate mail.

Confused Matthew is a film critic (or, in his own words, a screenplay analyst) whose main reviews consist of pointing out why he doesn't like the story and/or characters in films that were generally well-received by the public (not to say he hates all of them, an example being a glowing review of ''Frozen''). He's also known to dabble in the various ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchises, and for this reason, he's often compared (and paired) with WebSite/SFDebris, and he's borrowed one of SF Debris's catch phrases ("Too good for 'em, I say!") in a couple of reviews.
