->''"This game is ass."''
-->-- '''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'''

A film buff from New Jersey (now supposedly living in Philly) with directing aspirations, James Duncan Rolfe (born July 10, 1980) remained mostly under the radar until 2006, when he posted a couple of joke reviews he made for his friends a couple years earlier on YouTube, under the name "The Angry Nintendo Nerd". A few years of booming popularity later, he eventually evolved into WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd.

Aside from making Nerd videos, he also has a large number of films (he's been making them since 1989) registered on his website, [[http://www.cinemassacre.com/ Cinemassacre.com]]. In addition to the Nerd character, he has two other shows: ''WebVideo/BoardJames'' and ''[[WebVideo/YouKnowWhatsBullshit You Know What's Bullshit?]]''. He also established an improv series with a few friends of his called [=OverAnalyzers=].

He also often posts videos to the site with him acting as himself, either performing interviews, documentaries, or movie reviews, most notable of which is Cinemassacre's Monster Madness, an event that he has taken part in every October since 2007 where he reviews one horror film every day of the month, whether it be an old classic or an obscure treasure, usually in keeping with some sort of theme (SoBadItsGood films one year, the entire ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' series another).

With work on TheMovie necessitating a reduction in the frequency of Nerd episodes, Rolfe decided to compensate by launching ''WebVideo/JamesAndMikeMondays'' in December 2012. This is a weekly series in a LetsPlay format, where Rolfe and Creator/MikeMatei play games that in most cases might not be featured in a Nerd review -- whether it's a classic, an obscure game, a romhack, or the occasional game that's already been reviewed.

He is affiliates with both Website/ScrewAttack and Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses (despite, or perhaps due to, the Nerd's eternal conflict with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic).

Similar to ''Monster Madness 8'' in that it was another random, non-chronological assortment of movies, but it came with its own changes from previous marathons. This time, the videos were made available on [=YouTube=], appearing on the same day as their Cinemassacre.com releases. Some of the reviews were of public domain films, which aired on both websites. For the reviews that weren't of public domain films, the [=YouTube=] release would instead feature a "Monster Madness Rerun", a video from a previous year that was formerly exclusive to Cinemassacre. Lastly, this year had unscripted discussion videos. Rather than the usual scripted format of James' commentary over clips of the movie, these episodes had James and Mike Matei on-camera with only a few stills of the movie, making it available for both websites. A few of them weren't focused on a single film review, but rather a general topic. These discussion episodes are marked with **

Stated by James to be the final marathon to have a full 31 reviews. It marks the first time the entire marathon is viewable on [=YouTube=], with no Cinemassacre.com-exclusives. The reviews were all once again scripted, but with stills instead of video clips like in previous years, making them [=YouTube=]-friendly. This year was also divided into several sub-themes depending on the day of the week. ''Mondern Mondays'' focused on recent horror movies, ''Top Ten Tuesdays'' showcased James' recommendations for the best horror movies by era, ''WTF Wednesdays'' were dedicated to weird movies, ''Blood-thirsty Thursdays'' were movies about vampires, ''Franken-Fridays'' were movies about Frankenstein, and ''Weekend Whatevers'' had no specific focus.

!!Tropes applying to Rolfe himself and his work:
* ArchivePanic: Invoked; James never watched ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' as a kid, and recently decided to play catch-up. But he freaked out when he learned how long the series is, and that's not even counting the original Japanese series that it takes footage from. Even limiting himself to just the first season, he had to binge watch ''sixty episodes''.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In his Top 10 Shitty Shatner Movies, he ended the list with Incubus at #1, and talked about how the film was lost until it turned up with France, and ended with this dark sentence...
--> "There was a lot of bad luck associated with Incubus and came with the reputation as one of those films with a curse. [Milos Milos] killed his girlfriend and committed suicide. [Ann Atmar] has also committed suicide a few weeks after the film wrapped. [Eloise Hardt's daughter] was kidnapped and murdered. Director Leslie Steven's production company went bankrupt, and his marriage ended in divorce. And William Shatner ended up being in a lot of shitty films."
* AuthorAppeal:
** Horror movies, especially monster movies.
** References to shit. Sorry, that was meant to be, references to '''''SHIT!'''''
** Urban legends and conspiracy theories, especially those regarding supernatural phenomena or extraterrestrial life.
* BadassBoast: From the "Contra Memories" video: "I beat Contra before breakfast."
* BerserkButton: James ''hates'' iTunes, and is of the opinion that it gets worse with every release, especially changing the interface and removing options (he elaborates on this during the iTunes episode of YKWBS). He also hates waiting for it to update. He spent a good several minutes during the "James and Mike Mondays" episode ''VideoGame/StarFox'' complaining about it.
* BookEnds: First appearing in 2009 the Monster Madness series having introduced a pair of Skeletons watching the series on a TV in their crypt. They don't always show up and during the 80's-a-thon their crypt features 80's memorabilia including replacing their couch with bean bag chairs.
* BulletTime: One of his choices for the Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches.
* TheCameo:
** He appeared in different commercials (one of the earliest being a Budweiser commercial), other online shows, and even independent works (like the Sonic fan film).
** At one point he even assists in special effects works with other works, like blood work and all.
* CloudCuckoolander:
** Judging by the content of his films.
** [[http://cinemassacre.com/2010/11/23/top-10-movie-moments-that-have-nothing-to-do-with-the-scene-from-frankenstein-where-the-monster-throws-the-girl-into-the-pond/ Top 10 Movie Moments That Have Nothing To Do With The Scene From Frankenstein Where The Monster Throws The Girl Into The Pond]] is a whole video of him listing moments from various movies that have nothing to do with the scene from the 1931 ''Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}}'' when the Monster throws the girl into a pond.
--> (Scene from the movie ''Film/TheFury'' where [[spoiler:PopGoesTheHuman]])
--> "HOLY SHIT! Well, I'm not thinking of Frankenstein. Are you?"
** And speaking of Top 10s, he made another one called [[http://cinemassacre.com/2013/12/12/top-10-worst-top-10s/ Top 10 Worst Top 10s]], and #1 on the list is ''Top 10 Times Johnny Depp Says "Then."'' Dude sure does love his unconventional Top 10 lists.
* {{Corpsing}}:
** Seven words -- "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmSXEF4OzNU Live like a windrammer as you fuck.]]"
** Anyone watching the episodes of AVGN with Lloyd and the Guitar Guy with keen ears and eyes can notice James losing his composure with some of the things they say.
** And of course, the one part in his review of ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIII'' where he stressed that the "Help I'm a turtle and I can't get up" gag is not funny, but burst out laughing anyway.
** The ''Film/HouseOnHauntedHill1959'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpBnj-l3xTs review]] opens with a botched take of the "It's Cinemassacre's Mooooooooonster Madness!" intro where James loses it during the long O, which isn't used in any other video.
* {{Crossover}}: James and his high school friends came up with a proposed crossover of ''Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek'' called ''Trek Wars'', but they didn't flesh it out very much; the most they came up with was Luke Skywalker and Captain Kirk shaking hands.
--> '''James''': That's the best we could come up with; like, "Hey, how ya doin'?" ''(Mike Matei laughs)'' That was really stupid.\\
'''Mike''': I think you can come up with better at this point.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment:
** He has admitted to this being one of his weaknesses while writing. He noted that in the ''Ninja Gaiden'' review, he had to use a thesaurus because he had overused the word "impossible" in the original script. The trope has been invoked a couple of episodes before he managed to catch it, such as in the ''Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'' review:
--> "Every time you fall down, you have to walk through the entire stage all over again. All of the enemies come back, so you have to fight everybody all over again."
** He also has a habit of saying "head decapitation," as if there's any other kind of decapitation.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Ryan Schott briefly showed up in the background of James's CED player video in 2010, a full five years before he was actually introduced as member of Cinemassacre and started appearing alongside James and Mike more often.
* EasilyOverheardConversation: One of his choices for the Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches.
* {{Engrish}}: He gets an email filled to the brim with this in Mailbag #3, which introduces the "Live like a windrammer as you fuck" quote.
* FadeToBlack: One of his choices for the Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches. He says it's especially bad in modern trailers, as it's annoying when you're trying to find a seat and the theater keeps going pitch black every other second.
* GodNeverSaidThat: His refusal to watch ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' had nothing to do with the female cast[[labelnote:*]]his only mention of the female cast was pointing out how people referred to the movie as "the female Ghostbusters" due to being titled "Ghostbusters" just like the original film, and having little else to differentiate it[[/labelnote]], and was more due to how it calls itself "Ghostbusters" but doesn't build on the established lore of the franchise, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen despite having gotten the three surviving original Ghostbusters to appear in the movie]]. He even outright states that it may end up being a ''good'' movie in its own right.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: After his ''Top 1 Shark Movies'', which is basically him praising ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' and being unable to come up with any other good shark films, he would go ''crazy'' over the collection of terrible shark movies he has, leading to the '''Top 40 Shitty Shark Movies!'''
--> "[[MadnessMantra Shark movies, shark movies, shark movies, SHARK MOVIES, SHARK MOVIES,]] '''[[MadnessMantra SHARK MOVIES]]''', '''[[LaughingMad AHHHHHHahhhhhh]]'''[[LaughingMad ahhhhhh!]]"
--> *crazy laugh* Shark movies. '''Shark movies!'''
* GoKartingWithBowser: James and Mike plays. Mike has played enemies of the Nerd such as [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees.]] Played Straight in the recent episode, where James plays with Creator/DougWalker, who's [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Nostalgia Critic]] persona was the Nerd's SitcomArchNemesis.
* {{Gorn}}: He's known for making really gory short horror movies like The Deader The Better.
* GratuitousRape: James criticized both ''Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers'' (the producer's cut), and ''Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed'' for including these in it. His reasoning is as follows:
** ''Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers'' involves Michael forcibly raping his niece and impregnating her. Not only [[ThisIsWrongOnSoManyLevels does it seem so wrong on so many levels]], but it's entirely unnecessary. Michael is out to kill his remaining family. Now he's reproducing to make more family to kill? This is one of the main reasons why James blasted the producer's cut, despite it being the popular choice over the theatrical cut. He considers the latter to be more entertaining, whereas the former is just too messed up to justify its existence.
** ''Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed'' was a case of ExecutiveMeddling. Frankenstein, played by Peter Cushing, decided to rape the beautiful inn keeper spontaneously. This had no place in the film at all other than make Frankenstein out to be a more horrible human being, which this and previous films did a great job of already. The meddling part came from the producers wanting the rape scene added in [[SexSells just for sex appeal]], despite protests from Peter Cushing and Terrance Fisher, and the scene being nowhere at all in the original script. James says it best:
--> "It's not sexy, it's ''disturbing!''"
* HappilyMarried: To April, A.K.A. Mrs Nerd.
* ItIsPronouncedTropay: In his ''Real Ghosbusters'' tribute, he pronounced [=DiC=] as "dick".
* JumpScare: At the end of [[http://cinemassacre.com/2014/05/09/nostalgic-scary-books this video]], after talking about how scary the illustrations from Literature/ScaryStoriesToTellInTheDark are, he suddenly shows [[NightmareFace one of them]], amplified so that it covers the whole screen, with a ScareChord to top.
* KensingtonGore: many of James's films make use of extremely bright, cheesy blood, likely in honor of the classic B-movies he draws so much inspiration from. He has noted using Kool-aid, ketchup, water with red food coloring, and corn syrup with red food coloring in various commentaries and documentaries.
* KindheartedCatLover: Has a black cat named Boo who appeared in some AVGN episodes (most famously as "Death Kitty" in the Atari Jaguar episode), plus a white cat named Yeti.
* LetsPlay: Sort of. He does the WebVideo/JamesAndMikeMondays series with his best friend: Mike Matei.
* LongTitle: On a few occasions, James has mentioned a horror film that he's been planning to make for several years, titled ''The Confounded Crazy Critters who Devoured Neurotic Livestock and Couldn't Stop Dying So They Had to Carry Their Own Tombstones over Their Heads.''
* MadnessMantra: During his ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' marathon...
-->"Oh, Go Go Power Rangers... GO GO POWER RANGERS!!! '''GO GO POWER RANGERS!!!'''"
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: His portrayal as [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd the nerd]] couldn't be farther from how he is in real life. He doesn't walk around shouting obscenities and screaming at the top of his lungs like The Angry Video Game Nerd does, and often makes it clear that the Nerd is simply a character he plays.
* MetalHead: He is a huge fan of heavy metal and hard rock occasionally name checking them in a video. He especially seems to like {{Music/ACDC}}. In Mailbag #3 he is wearing a Music/LedZeppelin hat and in the ''You Know What's Bullshit'' episode on iTunes, his music library consists mostly of hard rock and heavy metal bands. He even started a series podcasts called "Audio Slaughter" with his wife. He talks a great deal about his longtime love for heavy metal, particularly in the episodes on Music/{{Metallica}} and Music/BlackSabbath. In his "'Making of An Angry Video Game Nerd Episode" video, he mentions that one time, while editing an exceptionally difficult and time-consuming project, he managed to listen to the entire Music/IronMaiden discography. He's also mentioned in several videos that he likes the cult British DoomMetal band Witchfinder General, who no doubt [[ColbertBump recieved much more attention thanks to this.]]
* {{Mondegreen}}: Invoked: In the second part of the ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' retrospective, he plays various clips and thinks the characters are swearing.
* MyCarHatesMe: One of his choices for the Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches (specifically, when the car doesn't start).
* NerdGlasses: Possibly the king of this trope.
%%* NiceGuy
* OlderThanHeLooks: He still looks to be in his twenties when he's actually ''37''.
* OneOfUs: Obviously, since he ''IS'' AVGN.
* OrbitalShot: One of his choices for the Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches.
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: When reviewing an old [=VHS=] copy of ''Assignment Terror'' for Monster Madness, James anticlimactically concludes that it's the worst commercially manufactured [=VHS=] tape to ever feature Dracula, Frankenstein, the Wolf Man and the Mummy.
* PlayingAgainstType: Known for the directing variant with making gory horror movies and gross out comedies. However, he made a short psychological mystery film called "The Jersey Odysseys: Legend of the Blue Hole" which doesn't include any gore or gross out stuff.
* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Parodied. As the Bullshit Man, he mentioned that people complained about having to say "Happy Holidays" out of respect for other beliefs when they ''insist'' on saying "Merry Christmas." So he coined a new term called '''HAPPY SHUT THE FUCK UP!''' and has proceeded to use this in some of his Christmas specials, including the AVGN Winter Games, and even as himself at the end of his TMNT Christmas review.
* {{Pun}}: His "Top 15 Movies Where People FUCKING Burn to Death" is full of fire-based puns, such as "That really burns me up", "Don't get too hot to trot", "You gotta strike while the iron is hot", "Uh-oh, this chick is TOAST!", "NOW we're cookin' with gas", "It's one hell of a hot mess!" Not only that, but the video uses samples from a bunch of songs that have the word "fire" or "burn" in them.
* RedOniBlueOni: Usually Blue to Mike's Red. Even while they're acting, Mike's hyperactive characters make even the nerd look reserved.
* SelfDeprecation: In the video where Inspector Gadget explains how to use Cinemassacre:
--> '''Gadget''': I wonder when the fuck there will be a new WebVideo/BoardJames!
** In the tenth anniversary video of "[[VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles You Can Just Walk Over It?]]", James made fun of his [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment repetitive writing]] in that AVGN episode.
--> '''James''': But the craziest thing about this is, it's really a shortcut now, because if you can jump up there, you don't have to worry about every time you fall down, you have to walk through the room all over again. So every time you fall down, you have to fight everybody all over again. You gotta do it all over again. All over again.
* ShoutOut: James has said that he quotes the film ''Film/AmericanMovie'' on a regular basis, and has put countless quotes in the Angry Video Game Nerd episodes. In a documentary about the making of the special effects in ''Film/AngryVideoGameNerdTheMovie'', after filming a failed attempt to have Death Mwauthzyx punch through a pane of glass, he spontaneously says:
--> '''James''': I'm sorry I tried to put your hand through this, man!
* SirSwearsALot: Surprisingly averted in most of his films (exceptions include "Kill for Thrill" and obviously "Film/AngryVideoGameNerdTheMovie"). The most you'll here is the occasional "hell" or "shit".
* SpitTake: He does an absolutely epic one when he realises that the [=IndieGoGo=] donations for the movie have just hit [=100k=]. He even does it in slow-motion, no less!
* StopMotion: James is a big fan of this practice.
* StoppedNumberingSequels: One of his biggest pet peeves, claiming it creates needless confusion since, if anything, making a lot of sequels means that numbers are ''more'' necessary to tell the movies apart.
* TemptingFate: In his ''Top 1 Shark Movies'', he said that there were some good ones. The only movie he can think of is ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', which he pretty much talks about for almost the entire video. See GoMadFromTheRevelation above for more.
* TitleScream: Comes in many variations in ''Cinemassacre's Monster Madness'', starting with Rolfe simply stating the name in the first iteration of the show, and having a much hammier variant in later years with "It's Cinemassacre's ''Mmmonster Maaaaadneeesss!''". The ''Camp Cult'' edition of the show even features fan versions of it.
* VerbalTic:
* VulgarHumor:
** He's known for doing this in AVGN, such as the Nerd defecating on the games (and Bugs Bunny).
** Also the characteristic of the Bullshit Man, Shit Pickle, and the Nerdy Turd.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** James intended the Angry Nintendo Nerd to be a trilogy series of videos he only made for his friends. [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd Then YouTube entered his life!]] As [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGFqdCeyBS4 one of the podcasts]] reveals, James was highly reluctant to make another AVGN video outside of original trilogy, and it took some persuasion from Mike to convince him that it's an idea worth trying.
** James apparently intended the Angry Video Game Nerd to have a spin off series called the Angry Movie Nerd, where he would cover bad movies, beginning with the ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesIII''. Despite being one of his most memorable videos, ranting about movie sequels in an earlier episode, and even implying to talk about the Friday the 13th movies in the game review, this spin off never happened. Instead, he's only done movie reviews as himself since.
** He, at some early point, planned on doing an AVGN episode focusing on the Super Mario Bros. movie (or he planned on it being an entry for the abandoned Angry Movie Nerd series). However, after Nostalgia Critic reviewed it, he felt he couldn't really add much to it with his own review so he held off. He eventually reviewed the film as himself for the film's 20th anniversary.
** {{Invoked|Trope}} in his video on why he would not watch ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' over the decision to make the movie a complete ContinuityReboot, particularly as they were able to get many members of the original cast to appear in the movie...but just as [[TheCameo random characters]] rather than reprising their original roles.
* WhosOnFirst: Utilized in the "What's the Movie?" video.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: His #1 pick for the Top 10 Worst Movie Cliches.
-->'''[[Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly Tuco]]''': When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: Is a big fan of this practice, and is concerned that modern audiences feel the need to nitpick anything that isn't 100% logical.
--> '''James''': The ''Indiana Jones'' movies are all entitled to some dumb moments. They recapture the spirit of the old adventure serials that came out during the Great Depression and World War II. Audiences were looking to escape the real world and forget their troubles. And that's what movies are all about: Entertainment. But today, audiences are far more critical, have less imagination, and aren't as willing to suspend their disbelief. And that is the death of cinema.
