* 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.

** [[InvokedTrope Invoked]] in his video on why he would not watch ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' over the decision to make the movie a complete ContinuityReboot, particularly as they were able to get many members of the original cast to appear in the movie...but just as [[TheCameo random characters]] rather than reprising their original roles.

-->'''[=James=]''': What i'm doing is what you would call nitpicking. Yeah, you know, when everybody bitched and ranted about [[Film/Spiderman3 Spiderman posing in front of the American flag]]? Or when [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull Indiana Jones hid in a refrigerator from an atom bomb blast]]? People complain about EVERYTHING!\\

** [[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.]]

** In the same video, when he talks about BatmanBegins, he purposefully nitpicks the film as a TakeThat to those who do the same with other movies (and by extension, other mediums). Considering the prominence of groups like the [[Main/PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad SJW]] and [[Main/HypeBacklash Hype]] [[Main/TaintedByThePreview Culture]], this line here couldn't be anymore true nowadays:

** In the third part of 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 a [[Main/WhoWouldBeStupidEnough bad idea]]. [[Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice Yeah, like they'd ever do that]].

* GodNeverSaidThat: His refusal to watch ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' had nothing to do with the female cast[[labelnote:*]]his only mention of the female cast was pointing out how people referred to the movie as "the female Ghostbusters" due to being titled "Ghostbusters" just like the original film, and having little else to differentiate it[[/labelnote]], and was more due to how it calls itself "Ghostbusters" but doesn't build on the established lore of the franchise, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen despite having gotten all of the orgiinal Ghostbusters to appear in the movie]]{{InvokedTrope}}. He even outright states that it may end up being a ''good'' movie in its own right.
