Added DiffLines:

* GodNeverSaidThat: His refusal to watch Film/Ghostbusters2016 had virtually nothing to do with the female cast, and was more due to how it calls itself Ghostbusters and doesn't try to connect itself with the original movies while providing some fanservice ([[IThoughtItMeant Not that kind.]]) to fans of the original. Also, he admitted he could be ''[[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail wrong]]'' about the perceived quality.

* HePannedItNowHeSucks: His decision not to watch the [[Film/{{Ghostbusters 2016}} new Ghostbusters movie]] was met with this reaction, never mind that those who called him out for it ignored his reasons for doing so.

** In his review of ''Film/{{Godzilla 1998}}'', he mentioned how ridiculous making Godzilla "realistic" by not making them shoot his atomic breath is like making {{Main/Spiderman}} "realistic" by not allowing him to shoot his web through his hands. [[Film/TheAmazingSpiderman Well...]]

[[Film/TheAmazingSpiderman Well...]]]][[note]]Though in context, he's making a reference to how in real life, Spiders shoot webs from their abdomen, not their limbs. He's well aware that in the comics as in the Webb films, Spidey uses wrist shooters.[[/note]]

* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: He doesn't walk around shouting obscenities and screaming at the top of his lungs like The Angry Video Game Nerd does, and often makes it clear that the Nerd is simply a character he plays.

** In his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z31naknjRyU "Bat-a-thon"]] video (done shortly after ''TheDarkKnight'' was released), he comments on the idea of a movie starring both Batman and Superman to be "dumb". [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2975590/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_2 Yeah, like they'd ever do that."]]

** James intended the Angry Nintendo Nerd to be a trilogy series of videos he only made for his friends. [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd Then YouTube entered his life!]]
*** As [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGFqdCeyBS4 one of the podcasts]] reveals, James was highly reluctant to make another AVGN video outside of original trilogy, and it took some persuasion from Mike to convince him that it's an idea worth trying.

* TearJerker: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Kc3JqVIIJA The Dragon In My Dreams]] is a very sad video, considering it's one of James' more personal ones. It's about James wanting to revisit the playground that bestowed his earliest memory--a nightmare where a dragon tries to eat him (the dragon was really plastic and part of the playground)--and then realizes that the one day he decides to come back, [[spoiler:the park is being renovated. Had he come a day later or even a few hours later, it probably would've been too late.]] The look on James' face as he looks at the dragon in its aged and dilapidated state [[spoiler:for the last time]] is just devastating. And then he goes away, looks at it again, and leaves [[spoiler:knowing that he'll never see it again. Worse yet, the video ends with a gallery of young James playing at the park which was being renovated.]]
** ROLFE: A No-Budget Dream, a documentary about James made back in 2002, when he was still in college, closes with this sad line: "Without my movies, I'm nobody, really."

** His refusal to review ''Film/{{Ghostbusters 2016}}'' has drawn some very heated reactions, with some calling it an example of [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch Complaing About Films You Don't Watch]] and others believing he's justified in saying no.

* BrokenBase: A sizable number of former fans have essentially declared war on James and everyone who still supports him due to the release of the AVGN movie. The reasons vary; some say they just hated the movie so much that they can't take James seriously as a creator anymore, some are convinced that he only spent some of the budget on the movie and personally pocketed the rest, some think that the existence of the movie is offensive to begin with because it led to a slowdown in the number of normal episodes produced, and some think it's an unforgivable sin that the movie isn't free to watch online.
