* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: While online reviews have [[OlderThanTheyThink been around almost as long as the 'net itself]], the half review/half comedy skit format was [[UrExample really his own]]. In the wake of his popularity came several other DIY critics, many with legitimate filmmaking and film theory credentials, who have arguably improved on that concept. Then again, Doug has mentioned that [[ApprovalOfGod he has no problem with other people doing his schtick]], seeing as there are plenty of movies [[StartMyOwn he will never get around to or want to review]].

** Disneycember. Back when it started in 2011, Doug doing multiple vlogs a day for a month was a ''huge'' thing, but a few years on it's rare for him to not have a vlog up on any given day of the year.

** He misgenders Lana Wachowski in Top 11 Strangest Couples by referring to "The Wachowski brothers". He at least corrected this one, referring to them as the “Wachowskis” in all following reviews.

** Can frequently get certain facts about the films he has reviewed or people involved with them wrong. In general Doug doesn't seem to be that concerned in doing much research about the stuff he reviews, certainly when comparing him to ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick'' or ''WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh'', since he believes a film should be enjoyed and completely understood on its own without AllThereInTheManual. Fortunately, he's posted three 'Top 11 Fuck ups' videos listing, explaining, and apologizing for thes.

*** In the ''Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire'' review, he claims that critics ripped it to shreds. It's more accurate to say that 'some'' critics ripped it to shreds as the movie had a mixed critical reception which means that there is no general consensus there.
*** In his ''Disney/TreasurePlanet'' review, the reason he's so critical of it is because he's so unfamiliar with the concept of Steampunk (a huge design influence on the movie). He also erroneously refers to the film's setting as TheFuture when it's actually an AlternateUniverse.
*** During his review of ''TheRoadToElDorado'', he claims that the point of the movie is to have animated characters act like live-action characters. The real point of the movie is explained on its main page.

** Critic getting creeped out by Casper asking the girl if he can keep her in the titular film. According to con reports, some fans at youmacon that year decided to make it a meme and ask Doug if they could keep him, apparently making him regret having ever done the joke.



** Regarding clipless reviews, ''Film/JurassicWorld'' had a lot of work put into it, but was very BetterByADifferentName (as Doug had only just done a Sibling Rivalry on it, albeit with Rob mocking him the whole way through), DontShootTheMessage and was kinda all over the place. ''Film/{{Pixels}}'' and especially ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' had a lot more creativity, interaction and both those things helped the videos be more like fun video essays and not just a vent by Doug and Rob.

''Pixels'' is also seen as far nicer than ''Film/EightCrazyNights'', as the latter was criticized by a lot of people for being really mean-spirited to Sandler and his fans, and the former just wants Sandler to give a shit like he used to.

** Even in ''Cinderella: Old vs New'' when he actually wants Hyper there (just as a different opinion, not as a person) and she's officially (for now) over him, he's allowed to not be okay with her and insults her more than a few times for what she's done to him.



* ContinuityLockOut: He doesn't have the long storylines that others do, but his show is probably one of the most character-based on the site and he's started being fond of {{call back}}s first set up from at least a year ago. He's also in ''plenty'' of cameo appearances, which usually tell you things about the character as well. This doesn't apply to the section of fans who watch just for a trashing of a movie.

** The Hyper storyline is long and involved, but they mention that she kidnapped him in every video she's in, which in-universe is because Critic still has issues over it, but out of universe is likely to try and avoid this trope and remind people that he hates her for hurting him, not because she's a fangirl.



** With "clipless reviews", a lot of people complain for various reasons (although ''Film/{{Pixels}}'' was praised for being nicer and sorting out the kinks of ''Film/JurassicWorld''), but Doug said at Retrocon that he'll be doing more because they always get good hits.

Also with ''Film/{{Pixels}}'', as the review itself noted, people ''flooded'' him with requests to do another review of a recent movie, so it's not like they can complain when he does it.



* SelfFanservice: Appreciated in the ''Film/OsmosisJones'' behind the scenes when they look over bookmark fanart, and Tamara and Doug both like the artist made them thinner and with a better chest respectively.
