** In a period of two months, Phelan panned ''[[Film/LightsOut2016 Lights Out]]'', ''Film/DontBreathe'' and ''Film/BlairWitch'' all in a row. The first two films had received wide acclaim while the latter film was highly polarizing (with Phelan's friend and colleague Creator/BradJones giving it a glowing review). This sparked a lot of backlash along the lines of "Phelan doesn't like anything" or "Phelan is the new [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]]", something Phelan was quick to [[https://twitter.com/Phelous/status/777273532397056000 mock on Twitter]].

* AuthorsSavingThrow: His ''Film/FunnyGames'' review was criticized by many who felt that he had reviewed it as a straight horror film and seemed to miss that it was a {{Deconstruction}} of the horror genre. Phelous would later do a follow-up video a few years later where he focused more on the film's themes and his own issues with them.

** Phelous's insertion of goofy music/cartoon sound effects in otherwise intensely horrific scenes can also help.

* NightmareRetardant: On the other hand, having Old Man read some of the most famous Creepypastas helps make them less scary than when originally read.

** In his review of Goodtimes' ''Cinderella'', he doesn't buy that Cinderella's father ignored the cruel actions of his new wife and daughters towards Cinderella, instead thinking he's actively allowing them to abuse Cinderella. [[spoiler: Even [[EnsembleDarkhorse Old Man]] thinks that her father [[EvenEvilHasStandards is terrible]] in TheStinger.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In his review of ''Film/PromNightIIITheLastKiss'', he points out how the alleged "likeable hero" Alex as a VillainProtagonist for cheating on his girlfriend with no hesitation, is completely unconcerned about Mary Lou's murder except for self preservation and never gets called out on it in the film proper. As such he doesn't see the ending with [[spoiler: Alex stuck down in Hell]] as a downer ending but a cathartic one.

* ReplacementScrappy: Hates "with a passion" the Dave Coulier voiced [WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters Peter Venkman]], to the point that his younger self mentally ''edited Couiler out'' of episodes he liked.
