* His cameo appearance at the end of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick's ''Theatre/LesMiserables''. He'd hinted at his capacity as singer in "Perfume," but here, we see him showing what he can ''really'' do.
* His [[MotorMouth summary]] of ''Theatre/HenryV'', ''Theatre/MuchAdoAboutNothing'', ''{{Theatre/Hamlet}}'', ''Theatre/LovesLaboursLost'' and ''Theatre/AsYouLikeIt'', all in ''thirty seconds'' to the tune of the William Tell Overture in his episode on KennethBranagh's [[Creator/WilliamShakespeare Shakespeare]] adaptations really needs to be heard to be believed. His little bow at the end is well-deserved.

* Reciting [[Literature/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream AM's speech]] at the end of Roberto Benigni's ''Pinocchio''.
* Oancitizen's utter ''evisceration'' of ''Exterminating Angels''
-->'''Narrator:''' "Why does sex lead to such violence and hypocrisy over matters that are no more than a tempest in a teapot?"
-->'''Oancitizen:''' "Because sex, for human beings, is a high risk, high stakes game that provides not only the problems of physical satisfaction and emotional security, but also the promise that your DNA will be passed on to another generation. It is because of these high stakes that it has become such a competitive enterprise, and the reason society has so many taboos, regulations and passions surrounding it. There, ''I solved your movie you insensitive asshat.''"
** ''The'' crowning moment, though, comes at the end.
-->'''Oancitizen:''' "Jean-Claude Brisseau makes an erotic thriller by asking women to masturbate on camera for him. He gets punished for it. So he decides to make a film exploring his feelings about it. Okay, makes sense, tough time in his life, probably wanted to think it through for a while. But then he makes a movie, full of [[AuthorAppeal male fantasy porn]] [[FridgeHorror for which he definitely harassed even]] ''[[FridgeHorror more]]'' [[FridgeHorror actresses]], to answer questions about why this situation arose. And after all that [[ItsNotPornItsArt soft-core soul searching]], the answer Brisseau gives boils down to 'It's not ''my'' fault they love me so much. I just [[TheCasanova exude this warm charm]] that makes them open up and get all emotional and'...[[{{Angrish}} gah!]] You know, I don't know if anyone in this film is meant to be sympathetic, but it's certainly not [[AuthorOnBoard this man]] who took his very real and very valid accusations of sexual harassment and turned them into a masturbatory fantasy. Jean-Claude Brisseau...'''[[PrecisionFStrike fuck you.]]'''"
** And building up to that, when there's a CreatorCameo...
-->'''Oancitizen:''' "Wait. Stop. Do you see that? See that guy? See him?" ''(circles a fat, homely man in his mid-50s)'' "That's the director. Not the suave, sophisticated, handsome man with the AnthonyStewartHead thing going on - ''that'' guy. THIS guy cast THIS guy [the actor playing Francoise] to play ''him''. Now... do you understand... ''my anger?!?''"
* The entirety of his ''[[http://blip.tv/brows-held-high/bhh-the-man-who-fell-to-earth-mpg-5370618 The Man Who Fell to Earth]]'' review. [[MusicalEpisode The whole thing is]] [[InTheStyleOf sung as different]] DavidBowie songs. Put best by [[http://twitter.com/#!/therealcoldguy/status/90987629650259969 Coldguy]]:
-->'''Coldguy''': Guys, I think we've just been served.
** "Dance Magic, Dance."
*** Extra points for every shot of Kyle in that sequence matching exactly to every angle & pose [[Film/{{Labyrinth}} Jareth]] had in the original.
* In his review of TheDoomGeneration, Oancitizen managed to get ''[[spoiler: [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall 90's Kid]]]]'' to [[HeroicBSOD shut up/leave]] by saying THIS:
-->'''Oancitizen:''' [[spoiler: ''Music/{{Nirvana}}'' is directly responsible for allowing '''{{Nickelback}}''' to exist!]]
* His opening speech to his review of ''9 Songs.'' While also a CrowningMomentOfFunny, it is all recited so fast and so nonchalantly, it's impressive. Shocking, but very VERY impressive.
* A somewhat meta example, but it was quite impressive when he managed to make an analytical and even pretty fair review of ''Film/ASerbianFilm'', despite said movie being infamous for its horrific, [[{{Squick}} disturbing]] content that [[{{Phelous}} previous]] [[WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob reviewers]] have understandably deemed, as Kyle himself put it, "unsavory". Granted, [[UnstoppableRage it doesn't last]], but still! (For comparison's sake, ''Film/ASerbianFilm'' reduced {{Phelous}} to UnstoppableRage, and Creator/BradJones' out-of-character review was one of bemused, horrified disgust, urging people not to see it at all.)
** One particular moment: describing and explaining the context for the "NEWBORN! PORN!" moment. He actually makes that scene sound ''necessary''.
** Another meta moment comes at the end with the NATO head, deconstructing OanCitizen's (and by extension the audience's) rage by pointing out that he lost his mind after watching a horror movie... that actually horrified him.
* [[http://www.formspring.me/Oancitizen/q/257949026421318849 This FormSpring Response]].
* In a meta sense, when he reviewed {{Slacker}}, he did it in the ''best way possible'': [[spoiler: '''phoning it in''']].
* ''AngelsInAmerica''. A serious review done with complete sincerity, only two or three minor jokes thrown in to lighten the mood, all in an effort to honor the victims of AIDS. His closing remarks alone are enough to make you tear up a little:
-->"For World's AIDS Day, we have to remember those who have fallen. The world only spins forward, and they will be citizens. The time has come. Bye, now. You are fabulous each and every one of you and I bless you. More life. The great work begins."
* He opens the [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/specials/33713-channel-awesome-holiday-video#josc598944 Holiday Special Greetings]] with a One-man quartet choir in perfect harmony.
* He won the Golden Critic for Best Writing. In the same award show he was nominated in Best Episode for Man Who Fell To Earth but lost to James Rolfe.
* The ''Film/GhostDogTheWayOfTheSamurai'' review. Oancitizen. '''Rapping'''. While TheRapCritic facepalms in the background.
--> Eh. Two out of five.
* [[http://blip.tv/brows-held-high/live-action-fanfic-the-origin-of-escargoancitizen-6180529 Live-Action Fanfic! The Origin of Escargoancitizen]]
* Making his review of Andy Warhol's "Vinyl" EXACTLY [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/15_minutes_of_fame 15 minutes]].
* His ''Between The Lines'' video analyzing the symbolism of [[http://blip.tv/brows-held-high/between-the-lines-batman-6266086 Bruce Wayne taking the bat as his symbol.]]
* Oancitizen was able to find meaning and theme of Revolutonary Girl Utena and explain in a clear concise way. JesuOtaku was very impressed. Then the film's end pissed him off by its utter isanity and that made JO happy.
** Actually, behind the scenes reveals that JO wrote the speech for him - but that doesn't diminish it.
* His entire review for Haxan. Not just because [[spoiler: it in itself was a silent film, complete with score]], but because of how well-researched it was. He goes into great detail as to why the film was so revolutionary and what it predated or laid the groundwork for.
** And then in the commentary of the show, admits that some spots weren't as well researched as the others. Also how he had to deep throat a banana. Twice. For a joke.
* His in-depth research of cult playwright and architect Robert Wilson - for a ''punchline'' - in his review of ''Film/{{Gerry}}''. The man puts ''effort'' into these reviews.
* His complete thrashing of Thierry Zeno's FreudianExcuse for the pig-f**king protagonist of ''Film/VaseDeNoces'' as well as his [[TranquilFury stonefaced, barely contained rage]] at the [[TearJerker fate]] [[SickAndWrong of]] [[OffingTheOffspring the]] [[WhatTheHellHero piglets.]]
* The vlog on ''Anonymous'', taking the movie to task for its multiple violations of the chronology of when Shakespeare's plays were released, and just common sense.
* His fiftieth episode is a work of art in general, but this line in particular was awesome.
-->'''Fan:''' I love your stuff.
-->'''Oancitizen:''' Hey, thanks man!
-->'''Fan:''' I just don't get why you hang out with [[Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses those losers]] all the time.
-->'''Oancitizen:''' Haha, '''fuck you''', they're my friends.
* His ending monologue for ''Melancholia'':
-->Depression is a disease; make no mistake. Von Trier [[DespairSpeech can romanticize it all he wants]] [[HeroicBSOD but depression is a stasis]]. [[AngstComa It's a dead end]]. [[DespairEventHorizon Succumbing to it is a surrender to death]]. [[StrawNihilist And you can go on and on about how hollow our culture is and how "shallow" life is]] but, [[SillyRabbitCynicismIsForLosers what of it? I'm alive. And I can experience the new, and share it]]. Here, now, I'm alive. And what happier thing can be said? We should all keep creating and sharing, because, [[Film/FForFake in the words of]] [[Creator/OrsonWelles a better filmmaker]]: "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Our songs will all be silenced]]. ''[[TheAntiNihilist But what of it?]]'' [[TheAntiNihilist Go on singing]]."
** ...which led right into the always-awesome [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Journey of the Sorcerer]].
* Kyle's ''Melancholia'' review resonated so strongly with fans that hundreds of them started posting to Twitter, Tumblr and various other social media sites about it, praising Kyle for doing an outstanding job of reviewing and analyzing films in a genre that he loves and making the films and the reviews accessible. Almost all thanked him for speaking so openly, so realistically and with such depth about depression. Many stated that they had been struggling with depression for years and that they had never seen anyone speak so honestly about their illness. Some said that Kyle had given them hope for the first time in ages because they could see that someone out there really ''did'' understand.
* He speaks Klingon, and can actually say 'To be or not to be' in Klingon.
* After ObscurusLupa briefly left the internet due to, amongst other things, [[MoralEventHorizon death]] [[SeriousBusiness threats]] [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings sent to her home]], Kyle [[https://twitter.com/KyleKallgren/status/309375497727524865 told those involved]] [[https://twitter.com/KyleKallgren/status/309375948107681792 that their behaviour]] [[https://twitter.com/KyleKallgren/status/309376082992316416 was unacceptable and]] [[https://twitter.com/KyleKallgren/status/309376372596424705 did not want anyone who had contributed to that behaviour watching his show]].
--> Everyone read [[http://obscuruslupa.tumblr.com/post/44695996579/life-goes-on this]]. This [[MoralEventHorizon behaviour]] [[SomeAnvilsNeedtoBeDropped is not acceptable in any civilised society]]. [[ObscurusLupa Allison]] [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming has been nothing but a dear friend to me since I started this series]]. Seeing [[SeriousBusiness this]] [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings kind of]] [[MoralEventHorizon abuse]] going on [[TearJerker is heartbreaking]]. If you're a patron of BHH and you have in any way contributed to this harassment, [[PapaWolf please, find someone else to follow]]. I [[BerserkButton will not tolerate]] the cruelty that [[TheSpoonyExperiment Mr. Antwiler's]] [[FanDumb fans]] have [[HateDumb unfairly heaped]] [[XPacHeat upon her]]. Nor should any sane person.
* In his Between the Lines review of Honey Boo Boo, he doesn't point out the silliness of the show or the people in it, but rather blasting the people that watch it, pointing out that more than anything else, it resembles a freakshow, marginalizing an individual and marking them as different from ''normal'' people. This culminates in him commenting on how the freakshow has more or less died out nowadays:
-->The sideshow is not gone, but it's unlikely to make a huge comeback, mostly due to a disposition called "political correctness", which is a florid way of saying ''basic human f**king decency.''
** Oh, and that last part is delivered in a deadly cold (albeit echoed and paired with huge captions) TranquilFury at the fact that Honey Boo Boo is essentially a freakshow centered around a ''six year old''.
* Kyle utterly deflating Peter Greenaway's claims of [[EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory the deep satirical symbolism]] hidden within Rembrandt's ''The Night Watch'' (and his comment that anyone who does ''not'' recognize it as such is [[TedBaxter "visually illiterate"]]) by constructing his own elaborate conspiracy theory about Illuminati lizard-men and Al Franken training an army of child soldiers under Graceland.
* Ven kicking Kyle off the chair in the review of ''Room In Rome'' after pointing out that he can only give a straight man's perspective of the film, and then giving an opinion of the movie that is most definitely ''not'' that of a straight cis-man.
* Kyle's [[http://blip.tv/brows-held-high/between-the-lines-the-beatles-6690002 Between The Lines episode on The Beatles]] is an incredibly well done, informative and educational look at poetry and language. It could easily be mistaken for a short film you'd see on the subject in a high school English class.
** Kyle also deserves props for reciting/singing nearly every example he uses himself, with the exception being sung in a language he doesn't speak.
* The entire review of ''Yeelen'', in which a West African fantasy film serves as a springboard for an impeccably researched, intellectual discussion of Mali's culture and history, the concept of the "HerosJourney", and how the unifying concept of nationalism can be very exclusionary in practice, the latter covering nearly a half of the review's runtime. What makes it all the more impressive is how he provides a balanced take on a topic as sensitive as nationalism (when he could have just as easily resorted to using GodwinsLaw to discredit it) while also admitting that the paradox it presents offers no simple or quick answers. It's a thing of sheer beauty on par with ''Melancholia''.
* His quick and informative summation of the intricate plot threads within the novel ''Cloud Atlas'', editing in appropriate visual and musical cues to distinguish the shifts in tone and subject matter.
** His dissection of the film's use of yellowface, including rebutting the common argument from the film's defenders that the film also had plenty of whiteface. He even shares how he came up with a quite convincing argument for what the filmmakers were going for that justifies it...only for the whole thing to be invalidated when he found out Tykwer and the Wachowskis' first choice to play Sonmi-451 was the very white Natalie Portman.
* Kyle's furious rebuttal to the critics of ''Perfume'' who suggested that the mass orgy near the end is the sort-of-protagonist's way of redeeming himself, by turning a would-be execution into a place of mass love. He points out that at the time, the execution would most likely have been attended by [[{{Squick}} entire families, including children]], and that the people were just fucking the first person within reach, so in fact, the mass orgy is nothing short of utterly horrifying.
* His horrified summary of the ending of ''Spring Breakers'', which comes off as very problematic in the wake of Trayvon Martin's death, and how the film itself otherizes black culture in an almost crypto-racist way, before launching into a critique on the extensive use of MaleGaze and [[http://harkavagrant.com/index.php?id=311 "strong female characters"]] as a horny douche's conception of feminist empowerment.
-->'''Kyle:''' "Spring Breakers" is an STD, bred in the petri dish of American pop culture, and it infects every''one'' and every''thing''... [...] He ''could'' be appropriating that culture to critique it, or to do it ironically, but... I don't see critique here. I don't see irony. [...] His arrangements of the pop items here... are indulgence. Harmony Korine wanted a Spring Break fantasy, and so he ''made'' a Spring Break fantasy."
* His ''Between the Lines'' video on ''[[Series/GameOfThrones Game of Thrones]]'' [[http://www.rogerebert.com/thumbnails/thumbnails-4214 has been featured on Roger Ebert's website.]]
* His introduction to Shakespeare month, which was done entirely in iambic pentameter.
* During his ''Romeo + Juliet'' review, he demonstrates that Shakespearean verse is in fact not hard but barely different than modern English.
-->'''Kyle''': But Old English is haaaarrrd!! ...[[LampshadeHanging said the obviously strawman commentator]]. Okay, Old English sounds like this:
--->''[[{{Literature/Beowulf}} Hwęt. We Gardena in geardagum]],''\\
''žeodcyninga, žrym gefrunon,''
-->Middle English sounds like this:
--->''[[Literature/TheCanterburyTales Whan that Aprille with his shoures soote]]''\\
''The droghte of Marche hath perced to the roote,''
-->And English, ''the language that I am speaking'', sounds like this:
--->''[[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet Two households, both alike in dignity]],''\\
''In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,''
* Kyle's recitation of Act 2, Scene 1, lines 155-169 of A Midsummer Night's Dream is absolutely ''beautiful''.
* To close out Shakespeare Month, Kyle, once more, covers ''Anonymous,'' and reduces it to ashes in piece-by-piece detail.
** Applying the same InsaneTrollLogic that an artist's work ''must'' reflect his own life to Roland Emmerich's own ''IndependenceDay''.
** Neatly dissecting the UnfortunateImplication of anti-democratic thought in the hawked Anti-Stratfordian theory in the film, which states the Tudor line could have continued...due to ''incest''. And just to drive the point home, he shows a clip of [[Series/GameOfThrones Joffrey]] as he sarcastically intones "All hail Prince Tudor."
** Pointing out that although many are willing to invoke DeathOfTheAuthor for such luminaries as Edgar Degas (a venomously anti-Semitic, anti-Protestant bigot), John Lennon (a mercurial wife-beater), and Woody Allen (an incestuous pedophile), to accuse Shakespeare of plagiarism and fraud - simply because he was middle-class and somewhat uneducated - is ''monstrously'' elitist.
** "Our Shakespeare": taking a line originally said in a sneering tone and using it to explain just ''why'' Shakespeare's work has survived and stayed revered for so many centuries.
* He tops his Man Who Fell to Earth review with another musical review, which examines Jean Cocteau's "La Belle et La Bete." Guest starring WebVideo/SomeJerkWithACamera, shot on location primarily at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] (with additional scenes at Universal Studios and Magfest), and featuring reviewer cameos (from Channel Awesome and beyond) who provide a lot of humor and snark. Complete with musical numbers parodying the more well-known adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
** The sheer volume of cameos in the opening number is astounding (though it helps that it was filmed at a convention). Aside from Jerk, there's WebVideo/PushingUpRoses, WebVideo/BennettTheSage, WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows, WebVideo/TheLastAngryGeek, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic, [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], WebVideo/TheRapCritic, [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]], [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash]],WebVideo/ObscurusLupa,{{Phelous}}, MikeyInsanity, [[WebVideo/ClassicBash RL King]], WebVideo/DiamandaHagan, TheOmega, WebVideo/PawDugan, [[WebVideo/NeedsMoreGay Rantasmo]], WebVideo/ThatSciFiGuy, [[WebVideo/VampireReviews Maven of the Eventide]], [[WebVideo/TheQuestForGeekdom Arthur Knowledge]], [[WebVideo/CountJackula Masqued Slaher]], [[Website/{{Geekvision}} Horror Guru]], Creator/CriticalMarine, [[WebVideo/VigalovesComics Viga]], WebVideo/TheHardcoreKid, WebVideo/ThePhilosofan, [[WebVideo/RBGProductions Spazz]], [[WebVideo/WhatWeHadToWatch Il Neige]], and [[WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern The Wire]].
*** And Ven breaking out an absolutely stunning pastiche of the title song of Disney's film over the ending credits, paying tribute to all the different versions of the story.
* The first section of his review of [[http://blip.tv/brows-held-high/brows-held-high-blue-7046873 Blue]]. He initially presents the idea of a movie as nothing but a single color as ridiculous and comedic. Slowly, he shows how much the color has cultural and emotional significance before the [[TheReveal sobering reveal]] of why the movie was made. He goes from comedic to insightful to sobering so smoothly, that it's mesmerizing to watch.
** Pointing out the innovative genius that led Yves Klein to develop his trademark gorgeous, rich, uniform shade of blue, in an era before digital processing made it as easy as tapping a few keys (complete with showing the hex value needed to create a perfect I.K.B.).
* In his "redux" of ''{{Film/Gerry}}'', Kyle once again sings a medley of different songs in rhythm to the noises of crunching gravel, this time performing ''over a dozen'' tunes without breaking his stride. The man has chops.
