* Directing everyone in ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'' to make the build-up to the climax so much more '''epic'''.
* Calling out the writers who use ThisLoserIsYou, as it's insulting, not identifiable and usually makes the protagonist look creepy.
* In the "Top Ten Disturbing Christmas Songs", the video that accompanies the weird slowed-down version of Franchise/AlvinAndTheChipmunks' Christmas song, setting it to misshapen creatures, Robot Maria's dancing driving men wild in ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'' and nuclear-test destruction. It's brilliant.
** The Chick's [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Joker]] impersonation (with the Joker's {{leitmotif}} playing, naturally) near the end of the video. Creepiness like that should be rewarded, [[NightmareFuel once you get out from under your bed]].
* Four episodes where two people mostly beat on each other shouldn't be considered awesome usually, but the ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}''-''Franchise/{{Bratz}}'' arc really was. SlapstickKnowsNoGender, no {{Double Standard}}s and a dynamic so intriguing you [[JustHereForGodzilla stopped caring about what she was reviewing]].
** Outside of that relationship, Chick giving Creator/MichaelBay TheReasonYouSuckSpeech for how racist and jingoistic he made the ''{{Transformers}}'' movies.
** Chick coming in to chloroform the Critic at the end of the ''{{Transformers}}'' review, mostly for how much of a shock it was at the time.
** Seeing as how Critic's usually pretty stupid and vindictive, it's a cool (and pretty sweet) twist that instead of wanting her to suffer for chloroforming him and going into his territory like people thought was going to happen, the reason for why he did what he did was actually a SecretTestOfCharacter self esteem boost.
*** Hell, Critic managing to be ''scary'' (for about a minute but still) by sounding like Him from ''ThePowerpuffGirls'' was pretty impressive.
* Nella and Chick singing along to "I'll Make A Man Out Of You". Admit it, you joined in at home.
* Her sheer despairing {{angrish}} over Belle's spine getting completely removed in ''Enchanted Christmas''.
* Odd choice, but the Nostalgia Chick's "I'm the Nostalgia Chick. And that's why I don't have a catchphrase" at the end of her video on TheSmurfettePrinciple feels awesomely defiant.
* Nella's ridiculously awesome song at the end of the ''{{Showgirls}}'' review.
* Nella's dancing at the end of ''Blonde Girls Now And Then''.
* Nella: "[[RousingSpeech For]] {{Sidekick}}[[{{Kickassia}} assia]]! And for {{geek}}ery!" [Rushes off with sword held high.]
** Also in that episode, even though it's pretty obviously Lindsay talking and not the Chick, giving a speech on how it doesn't really matter if a character is "feminist" or not because everyone will read into them in a different way.
* The Nostalgia Chick ending her review of Grease by singing along with "You're the One That I Want". She has some genuine pipes.
* A minor example, but it was pretty satisfying to see Nella freaking out the Chick for once by popping up on her couch uninvited in the "Disney Vs. Dreamworks" episode. Small-but-nice payback for the cameras and the abuse.
--> '''Chick:''' [[DropInCharacter How did you get in here?]] ... Why are you on this coast?
* Her argument with Douchey in ''Film/TheFifthElement'', with even his mother agreeing that he should probably bathe more.
* "Goodbye Internet Rose", sung by Lindsay. Also SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic.
** Followed by Dark Nella showing Chick into the fridge. Yeah, she's evil but after everything the Chick has put her through over the years, it's nice to see the shoe on the other foot for a change.
* The SexBot refusing to help Dr. Tease and the Chick when they're stuck in a dead end and giving them an utterly epic TheDogBitesBack speech on their mistreatment of him.
* Her DrivenToMadness rant on every single stupid moment in Creator/RolandEmmerich's films. So {{Motor Mouth}}ed that even Yahtzee would be jealous.
* Near the end of ''TheCraft'', her finally getting Lord MacGuffin to tell her what the fuck he knows by pointing his own gun at him.
* Even though the Chick wasn't really listening, Dark Nella giving her a HannibalLecture in the ''Film/{{Tron}} review about how much of a pathetic person she is.
* Defeating Dark Nella through the power of {{Newsies}}.
* Numerous members of the site singing [[Theatre/LesMiserables "One Day More"]]. It's actually pretty chilling by the end.
** Nostalgia Critic entering as Enjolras. [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic 'One more day before the storm!']] Chills. Actual, physical chills.
** [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]] was ''amazing'', and also gets credit for also being a UnexpectedCharacter. The commentary confirms that he was a last-minute addition and took the staff by surprise.
** The commentary reveals that JewWario's PrecisionFStrike alteration of Javert's lines was because he actually forgot the real lyrics. And yet both he and Lindsey were able to keep straight faces through the whole thing, deciding then and there that this had to be the take they used.
* The ending of her review of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', where all the girls who showed up for [[ItMakesSenseInContext Lindsay's intervention]] sing "[[IWantSong Part of]] [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Your]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4L2MBvHSKiQ World]]". (Except for DiamandaHagan.)
** And once again, Lindsay [[TheCastShowOff shows off]] her impressive singing voice in probably her best singing role yet.
** The entire review of ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' counts, with the Chick sticking to her guns about why she dislikes the movie (and giving serious reasons after the comedic hating of fangirls) but fans of the movie also being allowed time to defend it.
* Nella standing up for herself when The Makeover Fairy pops in during ''{{Grease 2}}''
-->'''Nella''': I! Deserve! Better! *storms off*
* The last few minutes of her video on Music/{{TLC}}, where she visibly fights back tears while reminding everyone making jokes about Music/AmyWinehouse's death that drug and alcohol addiction is a disease like any other, and states that she was inspired by Lisa Lopes, for whatever it's worth.
* Oan's rant at the Chick in ''Film/CityOfAngels'', basically calling her out on being so lazy (and note that her "busy" is drawing hearts around Todd's name) that he needs to do the explaining work for her.
* It's PlayedForLaughs, but the montage of everyone holding up their pets set to "Circle Of Life" is still pretty epic.
* She does a surprisingly good TimCurry impersonation, as seen in the review of ''TheWorstWitch''.
* Her distaste over ''Crossroads'' reneging on its portrayal of giving a baby up for adoption when you can't take care of it as the mature, responsible decision it really is, but hardly ever gets portrayed as.
* Seeing as how Critic established that taunting Disney villains usually turned you into a BalefulPolymorph, her getting away with calling the Evil Queen in ''Disney/SnowWhite'' an idiot for not delegating jobs to her minions.
* Although she peppered it with a few dark jokes, she made her total disgust of *Music/{{NSYNC}}'s and The Music/BackstreetBoys' manager ''very'' clear.
** Carries on in the "Top Ten Boybands", and the anger in her voice when she mentions him is still just as cool.
* She really goes all out on ''The Christmas Shoes'', and how it's quite morally repugnant if put into a real world setting.
** You can ''see'' just how badly she wants to stab the lead guy's wife and mother for acting like entitled bitches when they don't have jobs.
* The video about ''{{Daria}}'', a detailed exploration of why the show works so well, all while doing a perfect Daria impression.
* In the "Top Ten Worst Disney Sequels", tearing down the StockholmSyndrome accusations directed at ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' simply by comparing Belle's strong personality in that movie to her StepfordSmiler behavior in ''Belle's Magical World'' and ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeastTheEnchantedChristmas''.
** Her conclusion to the episode, a scathing critique of the "kids entertainment is dumb because it's kids entertainment" mentality.
-->''Entertainment is the only product in our kids' lives where parents will go "So what if it's crappy? It's just for my children." You don't say that about anything else in their lives. "What? It's just a car seat! So what if the belt barely works?" "What? It's just ''food''." And do you know why that is? Is it because you want your kids or yourself to be enriched? No. It's because kids are stupid, and you don't care what they watch, and you just want them to shut up! So you can blame Disney for going crazy with direct-to-video shit but you know what? It's ''your'' fault, parents, for buying shitty awful movies for your kids based on the standards your company ''used'' to uphold. Oh wait! You don't care, because kids are stupid, and they want the same shit over and over, and you're okay with them watching shitty movies.''
** She should probably get also some kudos for slogging through ''all'' the Disney sequels and surviving with her sanity kinda-sorta intact.
* In ''WhatWomenWant'', one of her criticisms for the movie is how they made sexism so over the top it's almost safe. Sexism in real life is usually ingrained in society, and therefore a lot more dangerous.
** This line is both full of win and an [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped anvil that needed to be dropped]].
--> '''Character''': *about Nike* They want to empower women.
--> '''Chick''': Like the twelve-year-old Indonesian women who made them?
* Her mini-rant in the "Top 11 Hottest Animated Men" about Jessica Rabbit actually being a pretty cool character, not just a pair of GagBoobs.
* Her TranquilFury throughout the entire review of ''TheAdventuresOfMiloAndOtis'', particularly when she brings up how she loved the movie as a kid just as much as the people asking her to go easy on it, but she just can't stand for this.
** For those who get tired of Doug/Critic's ExtremeDoormat tendency towards his fans (the fuck-up lists, constantly apologizing for everything, Critic getting himself killed or otherwise punished because they didn't like something he did), her saying she's not remotely sorry for destroying childhoods because it's her job. You've gotta admit that's refreshing.
* Putting out a very thoughtful critique of ''WesternAnimation/TheLorax'' in all three forms, including doing some of it in rhyme, less than a week after the film was released.
** Challenging fanboys to a fight after she says that she likes the much-maligned 2005 Hitchhikers movie.
** Even though it's segueing into HypocriticalHumor of bitching about a remake of something she loves, giving a speech about how ridiculous it is to bitch about screen adaptations that change the original.
** Just like the MotorMouth explosion in the Creator/RolandEmmerich films, her huge angry rant about the FridgeLogic, again set to classical music going crazy in the background.
** The review was so scathing that a worker from the film's marketing tried and failed to do damage control on the forums.
** Doug recced the review on his facebook later, giving her much respect for getting through and analyzing the film so well.
*** And compared to his later, more one-sided review, while she still despises the film, she realizes that a downer ending about environment in these times would do more harm than good, and execs ''do'' have plenty of restrictions placed on them when it comes to family film remakes.
** Her analyzing why there's no stakes in the movie, and comparing it to ''Wall-E that had the sense to put a love story first and then surround it with environmental messages.
* Nella successfully (or until the end anyway) guilt-tripping the Chick in ''SisterAct'', as well as subtly damning her for her stalking of Todd.
-->'''Nun!Nella:''' Or all those times I watched your dog when you ran off to stalk Todd in your futile attempts at fornication.\\
'''Chick:''' It's not fornication if we were married in a previous life.\\
'''Nun!Nella:''' Oh don't let me judge you, God will do that for me.
* The Critic/Chick song at the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheChipmunkAdventure'' might not be great technically (which was more than likely the whole point), but it was glorious fun nevertheless.
* Her analysis of ''Film/MenInBlack II'' as her personal Most Triumphant Example of {{Sequelitis}}, including her disgust at substituting {{Fanservice}} for charicterization, and saying they shouldn't have written Tommy Lee Jones out of the series (with a perfectly fitting ending) in the first place if they wanted to bring him back.
** Adding to this, she points out that even "Revenge of the Fallen" did better as a sequel than Men In Black II.
* For ''Film/WildWildWest'' she actually watched several episodes of the [[Series/TheWildWildWest original show]], to properly review it as a bad adaptation as well as just a bad movie. How many other people who have reviewed this one can say the same?
* Got to give one to RapCritic- when Nostalgia Chick tried to get out of doing the crossover with someone who was not Todd, by saying that the topic was about Will Smith being a leading man in films, he proceeds to shoot down it by telling her that he watched Smith's RomComs. So he is knowledgeable on Smith's movie and singing career, and perfectly qualified to do the crossover.
* The way almost every person on the site did the Carlton dance on the Fresh-Prince review. It's just so great she managed to get so many people to agree to it. Kyle's smug, "That's right I'm awesome" look while he's doing it seals it.
* The video about ''EndersGame'', taking several well-deserved shots at Orson Scott Card while also making a mature, thoughtful examination of how much DeathOfTheAuthor can justify liking the work of someone with such hateful opinions.
* Her irritation in the ''{{Supergirl}}'' review that even in this golden age of comic book movies, there's still a complete lack of female superheroes getting films.
* Defending the song in ''Film/TankGirl'' as a way of coping with something as scary and terrible as child slavery.
* It might not have worked, but Nella and Elisa trying their best to convince the Chick that you can be a feminist and dress pretty at the same time.
* After retiring the Nostalgia Critic, Doug was very clear that while we might see him again someday, it would only be the occasional special appearance as he really wants to move on from it. Lindsey got him to play the character again ''one week later''.
** And again in a cameo less than a month after that.
* Her casual mention that Chuck Norris is "a horrible person that no one should listen to."
* The entire review of ''{{Reality Bites}}'', ripping the protagonists' {{Hipster}} pretentions into tiny pieces by repeatedly pointing out what horrible people they are, and ending with the perfect response to the movie's failed attempt to define "irony."
* How she managed to get every viewpoint in for such a LoveItOrHateIt movie. In order from positive to negative: Nella's literature-loving fangirl > Mara's pride on how it gave kids a voice > Chick thinking it's SoOkayItsAverage and not really giving a fuck either way > [[spoiler: poor Critic, who got bashed for disliking it and learned to keep his mouth shut]].
* Giving a completely serious discussion on the [[TheLordOfTheRings "gay hobbits"]] issue and pointing out just how ridiculous it was, rather than just using it for jokes like some people were probably expecting.
* Lindsay and Nella flipping off to the ones who marketed The Host as "science fiction for people who don't like science fiction" ie women.

!!!Out of character.
* In a meta example, turning the complaints of LetsSeeYouDoBetter into a character trait: Chick ''knows'' she'll never get anywhere, so that's why she enjoys tearing down people more successful.
* ''The A Word''. Just the emotional maturity and personal steel it took to make the documentary, and about such a personal issue, let alone a political one, gets her my undying respect.
** She won an [[http://www.fest21.com/en/blog/editor/usa_film_festival_short_film_winners_announced award]] for it. Much deserved.
* Her vlog of Channel Awesome's trip to Washington to lobby against SOPA, particularly the parts about how the bill's support hinges on statistics that the FBI itself says are unverifiable, and no one can explain where they came from.
* Lindsay's rant in the ''Franchise/{{X-Men}}'' commentary about how there's no point feeling ashamed for liking something. And this includes furries and fanfic writers, further separating herself from her character.
* Her response to a writer's (retracted) shot at [[ObscurusLupa Lupa]] after she had reviewed several films he wrote, with zero hostility. [[http://imageshack.us/f/825/obscuralupamarksevi.png/ It's roughly half-way down.]]
* On the forums, Lindsay giving a hilarious [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=32552&p=478339#p478339 smackdown]] to people already talking nonsense (including a rumor that someone got crucified and nobody cared enough to help) about the third anniversary. Bear in mind that she left that community ages ago because her section was so filled with FanDumb.
* This might be really weird, but considering all Lindsay's SelfDeprecation on how terrible an actress she is and how she blogged once on how hard it was to write a female character, you've got to give her credit on creating a... female character who's wonderfully funny, filled with depth and still manages to be sympathetic even though she's a terrible example of a human being.
** Elisa and Nella also deserve praise for their loads of characters who are just as original, funny and flawed as each other.
* The Dark Nella [[http://nostalgiachick.blip.tv/file/4750992/ trailer]]. Holy frigging crap, that was badass.
* On a meta note, pulling off the Dark Nella saga despite her two main actresses (herself and Nella) being on opposite coasts for the majority of filming. You really don't notice unless you're looking how little they appear together.
* [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thedudette/specials/26516-comicconprotests The Nostalgia Chick interviewing Comic-Con counter-protesters of the Westboro Baptist Church.]]
-->[[DeadpanSnarker "You know, you really have to wonder if they're worth counter-protesting...ah well, at least they're having fun."]]
* The AscendedMeme of her idea for a Disney movie based on Anne Frank, which now has [[JustForFun/DisneysAnneFrank its own TV Tropes page.]] Which Lindsay herself has actually contributed to, and challenges people to try to spot which entries were made by her.
* She and Todd spent their Valentines Day trolling the fuck out of ChrisBrown on {{twitter}}.
* Whistling [[Literature/TheHungerGames Rue's song]], to which Nella can only say that she can't whistle.
* From a writing perspective (both Doug and Lindsay's really), the Critic/Chick relationship. You know something's happened or is even happening, but outside from a few WordOfGod confirmations that the shippers don't just have goggles on, there's no exposition dumps, the two just let their interactions, words and acting do the job. Take note Hollywood, ''that'''s how you make a DatingCatwoman scenario work.
* [[http://t.co/Axc0RwgG Nella came out as bisexual]], [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming causing a storm of love and support from all her friends and fans]].
* Lindsay getting [[spoiler: Mara Wilson]] to appear in her {{Film/Matilda}} review.
** Let's fully appreciate this: [[spoiler:Mara Wilson's appearance in Doug's ''A Simple Wish'' review was awesome enough. Then Lindsey goes one better by actually getting Wilson in the room with her, and becomes the first person on all of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses to review a movie along with its lead actress.]]
* The second part of Lindsay's ''[[Film/TheLordoftheRings The Return of the King]]'' review [[http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=355154911266227&id=149264868600 was shared by]] ''Creator/IanMcKellen''.
* Getting nearly everyone at Channel Awesome (if not everyone), plus, Andre the Black Nerd, to do The Carlton Dance in her review of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir''.
* While agreeing with Rob on his complaining post about how she thought [[Anime/SailorMoon the show was bad]], still calling both him and Doug out for making the review [[https://www.facebook.com/thelindsayellis/posts/612511292122662?comment_id=99948226&offset=0&total_comments=1 "a failure in many ways"]] and {{gaslighting}} female fan complaints of sexism with the "it's just a character" excuse.
** [[http://lindsayetumbls.tumblr.com/post/85265948108/tgwtgsecrets-its-only-a-character-for-years She elaborated on the second point]], saying that even if Doug is too nave to realize he's being offensive that's no excuse, admitting that it also applies to her and Chick, and if you're trying to make a satirical point in-character but it just comes off as what a bigot would say with no repercussions, that's failed satire.
* Hearing that she hated Wreck-It-Ralph was this for the few who also despised the film.
* After a caller in the 2013 drive asking Doug the ridiculous question of "is [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Korra]] a redeemable character", Lindsay bringing up the DoubleStandard that nobody would be asking that if Korra were male.
** After getting attacked by a fangirl of ''The Little Mermaid'', she had this to say:
-->'''Lindsay''': Okay, people, you've got to stop attaching your ego to the things you like. It does not devalue you as a person if someone disagrees with you.
** Also telling Doug off for using Creator/DanteBasco as a crutch, as the caller asking for voice acting skills was a woman and trying to get her to emulate a guy is not in the least bit helpful.
** Even more; she called him out earlier, and it was so spot-on that he couldn't say a word back:
-->'''Lindsay''': I don't even think it's because of something you love, it's just you.
-->'''Doug''': Okay it's just me then...
-->'''Lindsay''': No it really is because I don't know anyone like you.
-->'''Brian''': When he gets stuck he hands it over to Rob.
-->'''Lindsay''': No he ''never'' gets burn-out, it's bizarre, like I don't know anyone that does it. Like even when you really enjoy something everyone gets burn-out except ''you''.
* Figuring out a suspiciously plausible reason why ''TheFifthEstate'' is so intent on attacking Julian Assange.
* Joining many other fans in lambasting the ''Series/GameOfThrones'' scene where the writers and director managed to accidentally make what was supposed to be a consensual sex scene into a rape.
* Lindsay has said she considers it a CMOA for naming BigLippedAlligatorMoment.
* Lindsay defending Anita Sarkeesian of ''Webvideo/FeministFrequency'' on Website/{{Twitter}}.
