** Actors Creator/SethRogen, Creator/ShiaLaBeouf and Creator/AshtonKutcher have been used as punchlines for "It could have been a worst option for [insert role here]" (like having Ashton as VideoGame/MaxPayne or Rogen as Series/DoctorWho). In Shia's case, [=ERod=] admitted he used him because Shia was an easy target thanks to the ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' movies and ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', while he snarks at Seth Rogen because he always plays the same character with a different shirt.

** This is really shown in the ReTool, where he goes into the movies he's reviewing to assault or even kill the characters, regardless of whether or not they deserve it.

** He states in his {{Beastly}} review that Creator/{{Disney}}'s version of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' was "perfect" and no one should ever make it again because of that. Contrast that to [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]] [[CrossOver and]] [[WebVideo/SomeJerkWithACamera Jerk's]] review where they say, anything can and should be remade as stories gain power through retelling and stories are owned by no one.

** In his Creator/TimBurton ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes'' review, he claims that the concept of a super-intelligent ape forming an army to conquer the Earth from ''Film/RiseOfThePlanetOfTheApes'' was a rip-off of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' [[TheMovie Movie]]. Except that they have little to nothing in common with each other. Caesar was born from a virus-infested monkey while Mojo Jojo was a mischievous monkey who accidentally had a dose of Chemical X after pushing the professor. Also, Caesar was treated horribly at a primate shelter which resulted in him forming an army of apes to rebel and get out of the city. Mojo, on the other hand, created an army of super-intelligent apes just so he could take over Townsville. On the other hand, it's likely just a joke about how the two products came out close together.

** In his review for the film version of ''Film/RatchetAndClank'' he voices displeasure when the characters uses outlandish guns such as a the sheep ray and the storm maker thinking they were add ons in the movie...despite the fact that the series is practically known for crazy weaponry and are both featured within the games he keeps comparing the movie to. He likewise seem to have forgotten the movie is set in its own continuity from the game series and thus doesn't follow the original game's story, hence the changes. As well as the fact the game of the movie filled in the plot holes he pointed out.

** In his video describing his problem with the various upcoming (at the time) DC movies, he complained that Wonder Woman "just" fighthing World War I soldiers was "lame" because her main thing was supposed to be fighting and interacting with beings from Greek Mythology. While Wonder Woman ''is'' indeed primarily associated with Greek Mythology, and has plenty of characters coming from it in both her RoguesGallery and her Supporting cast, she has been fighting plenty of other opponents over the course of her adventures, and plenty of her villains, including two of her most iconic nemeses (ComicBook/{{Cheetah}} and [[DepravedDwarf Dr Psycho]]), have nothing to do with Greek Myths at all.

** As much as he tries playing himself off as a superhero, he acts a lot more like a bully to movies. The reviews for ''Literature/TheLittleVampire'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Robots}}'' come to mind, but honestly just watch the Robots one to see his running gag just for celebrity cameo-voices.

** Likewise didn't win over many gamers with his review of ''Film/RatchetAndClank'' as many found his claims of being a fan of the series hypocritical since he didn't seem to realize most of his complaints against the film (such as the guns and supposed personality changes) were ''true to the game''.

** While he technically didn't bust that many in this category, he has a bad habit to categorize ''all'' movies [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire depicting vampires in a more sympathetic light]] as Twilight-like movies, with the implication he believes they should be AlwaysChaoticEvil in every media they appear in, [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Angel]] being apparently the sole exception to the rule (most notably, he accused ''Film/InterviewWithAVampire'' of having turned them into "pussies", and his ''Literature/VampireAcademy'' referred to the good-aligned Moroi as "Lame-pires" while the evil Strigoi were called "Real vampires"). Those who actually enjoy stories about good vampires aren't necessary pleased.

** [=ERod=] later explains in his Honest Review of ''TheDarkKnightRises'' that it wasn't ironic at all because Joseph wasn't playing Robin at all, his character just had the name "Robin".

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Many dislike the reboot due to removing the original format and has now become a series of skit reviews much like some of the new Nostalgia Critic reviews (which also gets a fair share of dislikes)

** In his ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' movie review he claims that the movie was non-canon and the show did its own version of how they got their Turbo powers. Except, it ''is'' canon and the Turbo season starts with them already having their powers and the premiere even uses clips from the movie as a flashback, the first episode starts with the BigBad preparing revenge for what the Rangers did in the movie. He's most likely confusing it with the first Power Rangers movie which was non-canon and the third season did its own story of how the Rangers got their ninja powers. Furthermore his complaints about using spandex and the Megazord being a guy in a suit becomes annoying knowing that the Turbo movie was meant to fit in with the series.
