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

Born James Duncan Rolfe. A film buff from New Jersey (now supposedly living in Philly) with directing aspirations, Rolfe 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).

[[folder:'''2015''' ''Monster Madness 9'']]
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 years. 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 featured 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 episodes are marked with **

!!Tropes applying to Rolfe himself and his work:
* 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!'''''
* 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 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 have introduced a pair of Skeletons watching the series on a TV in the there crypt. They don't always show up and during the 80's-a-thon they're crypt features 80's memorabilia including replacing there 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 Budwiser 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 ''Frankenstein'' when the Monster throws the girl into a pond.
--> (Scene from the movie ''Film/TheFury'' where [[spoiler:PopGoesTheHuman]])
--> "DAMN! 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=rGZri15rD-U 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.
* {{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."
* 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.
* 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 producers 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 producers 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 more of a horrible human being, which this and previous films already did a great job of doing 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 no where at all in the original script. James says it best:
--> "It's not sexy, it's ''disturbing!''"
* HappilyMarried
* 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 James and Mike Mondays 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.''
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: His portrayal as [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd the nerd]] couldn't be farther from how he is in real life.
* 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.
* {{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
* 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.
* 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.
* 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!
* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
