** Not that he didn't like ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' or the sequel, but that years later he will shit on those movies, specifically on AndrewGarfield's portrayal of the character, if he has the chance. Even in his ''Film/Logan'' review he took time to bash ASM as the inferior to TobeyMaguire

** Bob posted a second video defending ''Film/SpiderMan3''. Some agreed and liked the film, but the rest were annoyed by the condescending title ("Why You're Wrong about Spider-Man 3"). A third group didn't care about the movie, but was tired of Bob's whining.

** Bob posted a second video defending ''Film/SpiderMan3''. Some agreed and liked the film, but film especially because the rest hatred often feels memetic rather than an actual commentary on its quality. Others were annoyed by the condescending title ("Why You're Wrong about Spider-Man 3").3") and felt the flaws outshone his defense. A third group didn't care about the movie, but was tired of Bob's whining.
*** Bob's defense of the infamous "Emo Peter" scene is a microcosm of the video's BrokenBase. Some agree with Bob in that the scene is an IntendedAudienceReaction where the audience is supposed to feel secondhand embarrassment by Peter's antics (with the criticism against it redundant because that's how the scene was supposed to come off). Others disagreed and felt that the movie was trying to push Peter's behavior as legitimately cool instead of a joke and that it's just {{Narm}}. A third group feels that even if it was intentional, doing something dumb on purpose doesn't make it any less dumb.

* CriticalResearchFailure: His review of the Warcraft movie contains several complaints about it being set in the "backstory" of the game. Apparently he was unaware the MMO wasn't the beginning of the series.

** His snide attacks on UsefulNotes/TheAuteurTheory and categorizing the French critics as snobs who rediscovered ''Film/KissMeDeadly'' are serious howlers for several reasons. For the first thing, the French critics did not retroactively rediscover it, they praised and celebrated ''Film/KissMeDeadly'' [[http://alumnus.caltech.edu/~ejohnson/critics/cahiers.html#y1955 in the 1955 year of release]], putting it in the Top Ten of that year. Secondly, there was nothing snobbish about the French adulation or reappraisal of American crime films, since the word FilmNoir comes from Serie Noir, a cheap paperback label that published translations, copies and local versions of American crime stories. Thirdly, he dismisses the idea that the French saw the film as surreal as gilding the lily, when the original surrealists embraced popular culture, genre fiction, and other ephemera of culture[[note]]The French being the first to write seriously on Creator/HPLovecraft, James M. Cain, Creator/DashiellHammett and more or less being the first Europeans to argue that American writers were as good as the best of Europe had a long anti-snobbish tradition in the early 20th Century[[/note]], as implied the name itself (surrealism means "super-realism", a word which the French surrealists intended as a counter to the supernatural).


Added DiffLines:

** Some cinephiles got infuriated for him listing ''Film/KissMeDeadly'' as merely a "good enough movie" when in the opinions of most FilmNoir and cine-enthusiasts [[https://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/list-o-mania/Content?oid=896619 this is an all-time masterpiece of cinema]], available on Creator/TheCriterionCollection, and aesthetically and technically better than any of the movies (mostly summer blockbusters made on several times the budget that the creators of that film had) he has discussed on the show.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: [[EvilCounterpart The Game Antithinker]] definitely qualifies. He's either [[RuleOfFunny a nice comedic divergence]], or another annoying and pointless TakeThat to MovieBob's opinion of "hardcore gamers".

** In general, Moviebob can stir some very strong feelings in people. Fans feel that the reviews are full of smart analyses and Bob himself is a teller of harsh truths while his detractors feel the show is condescending and he has a bad case of RightlySelfRighteous. Detractors feel he's got an extreme case of BiasSteamroller while his fans argue that all reviewers are biased in their own ways and Bob himself is no different. Lastly some contention comes distinctly from the OpinionMyopia entry below, where it is easily felt MovieBob gets too aggressive or academic when someone disagrees with him over taste.

** His review of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice came off as him whining about the movie rather than a critical review. Him not going through his review of The Killing Joke without complaining about Dawn of Justice didn't help much either.
** His constant wangsting about Dawn of Justice and The Amazing Spider Man films comes off as hypocritical when you take into account that he had previously made an Escape to the Movies video where he basically told people to stop doing the same thing with ''Film/ThePhantomMenace''. If it's a movie you really hate but he doesn't think is that bad you should stop complaining about it and let it go, but if it's a movie ''he'' really hates he'll complain about it like it's the worst thing ever any chance he gets and ''you're'' the tasteless idiot or brainwashed fanboy if you think he's laying it on a bit thick.
** Whenever he reviews a DC film it's one of those situations that makes you say in a deadpan manner "here we go again" because whining about a DC movie seems to be his M.O at this point. Which is why is positive review of the Supergirl tv series was surprising.

** He didn't outright bash the movie but he most certainly got alot of flack for saying ''Film/SpiderMan: Homecoming'' was an average movie.

** His numerous twitter rants where he categorises Middle America and the working class as AlwaysChaoticEvil who are preventing his perfect utopia from coming to pass comes off as fascist and at times sadistic, especially when he mocks people who are losing their jobs to outsourcing and automating. His [[https://youtu.be/EEJMDet82Hk?list=PL1WoYVvJ35Xqnv9AAA1qQT_0S_nLBjjV0 How to Fix the Terminator Franchise]] video is actually the nicest way he's ever talked about these views.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: In his review of ''TrueGrit'', he takes back calling Creator/MichaelBay [[TakeThat a douchebag]]. He still thinks Bay's a bad director, but that kind of crossed the line.
