* OldShame: His ''TheFastAndTheFurious'' review, for three reasons: the material was dull, he doesn't feel he was that good, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and his hair was embarrasingly long.]]
** As he says in his ''Film/{{Ultraviolet}}'' review, considers his infamous ''{{Equilibrium}}'' review to be poorly-done in retrospect, saying that he still lacked experience at the time. He also refers to his ''Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'' review as "rectifying an old mistake," referencing the favourable text review he wrote in 2009.
* OneOfUs: Fires off several trope names in his commentary for ''Kickassia''. Also, he has mentioned TVTropes by name at least twice. And he checks it daily to see what people have written about him. And tweeted in delight when he found out this specific page existed.

* ScheduleSlip: Bad Movie Beatdown episodes are few and far between these days, although Matthew keeps his hand in the review business with Projector.
* ThrowItIn: In the ''Wrong Side of Town'' review, he listed off two things as "First" and "B". According to his Twitter, he left it in because it was funny.
* TooSoon: Delayed the release of the ''[[TwentyTwelve 2012]]'' review in light of the March 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, as well as slightly editing the review and adding a disclaimer in relation to the events.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Matthew wanted to review the film ''Film/{{Torque}}'', but after finding out that the creators intended for the movie to be stupid and over the top, he decided not to.
