* BrokenBase: The ''Sucker Punch'' review is either a hilarious ripping of a pretentious movie, or one DoubleStandard joke after another over a decent, if unexceptional film. Many blame JesuOtaku's involvement (She's credited as a primary writer) for this.
* EightPointEight: He got a bigger backlash than ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' for giving ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' a better written review than ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' (Although Matthew gave it a good score as he went in expecting a movie where tons of things blew up, which is what he got). He eventually changed his opinion on it when he did the video review of the movie.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Describes the scene with the Japanese family in ''2012'' as unintentionally funny, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartWarming but admits showing anything from the scene would be tacky after Japan got hit with a tsunami in real life like in the movie.]]
* GrowingTheBeard: Film Brain's general setup hasn't changed, but there's a general change in focus from the early episodes and especially following the hiatus. His voice has got more relaxed and his ''{{Screenwipe}}'' influence has become more obvious.
* HePannedItNowHeSucks:
** Film Brain got a bit of a backlash after panning CultClassic ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}''.
*** The hate for him over panning ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' is a weird one, seeing how the film was critically panned when it was first released (Entertainment Weekly even called it a complete ripoff of ''Film/TheMatrix'') and it's a mild CultClassic at best.
** He also gives nods to the reaction in later reviews.
** It happened again after he gave a lower rating to ''Inglourious Basterds'' than the aforementioned ''Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen''.
** In a subversion, he reviewed ''Film/SevenPounds'' expecting controversy to rival ''Equilibrium'', only for most of the comments to ''agree'' with him on how [[UnfortunateImplications disturbing]] and [[{{Glurge}} manipulative]] the movie was.
** It's happened yet again with his review of ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean: At World's End'', despite the film having already gotten mixed reviews. He did try to stem this by having Welshy do a counterpoint to the review to display some of the legitimate arguments that could be made against his, while still giving his honest opinion on the subject.
** Film Brain got some fire from ''James Bond'' fans who felt he was extremely unfair with ''Film/DieAnotherDay'', and many argued that ''Film/QuantumOfSolace'' was a much worse movie.
** His crossover review of ''Film/BatmanReturns'' with WebVideo/BennettTheSage, to the point that [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2419444/combined the episode's IMDb page]] has received five 1/10 ratings out of six votes. Bennett's BiasSteamroller against Creator/TimBurton (not shared by Film Brain) probably had a lot to do with it.
* HilariousInHindsight: In the ''Film/{{Equilibrium}}'' review, he shouts [[TheScrappy "Puppy power!"]] at one point.
* LGBTFanbase: Less for {{fanservice}} (though a lot think he's a cutie), more for his {{Berserk Button}} against homophobia.
* TheScrappy: Film Brain is this to the ''Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses'' community, particularly for his work on his earliest reviews. He acknowledged in a joke when he refers to "all three" of his longtime fans. It was also [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in ''{{Kickassia}}'' and his commentary of it. He's since been RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap.
** Lampshaded/spoofed in his CrossOver with ObscurusLupa, where she claims to be the most annoying person on the site. Matthew replies that her graph is America-only, going worldwide he still wins.
** Professor Celluloid seems to have few fans, which is probably why he's seen less in later episodes. [[WordOfGod Buck]] has also said the reason the character is rarely seen, is to avoid accusations of being a [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Dr Insano]] [[{{Expy}} rip-off]].
*** Lampshaded in the ''Spy Kids 3D: Game Over'' review when FB tries on Celluloid's glasses (which have crossed eyes printed on the lenses) in preparation for the film's 3D segments.
-->'''Film Brain:''' Wow, I look like an idiot!
* TheWoobie: Borders on this in his ''Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'' review, when he [[HeroicBSOD breaks down]] upon seeing the infamous "enemy scrotum" scene, having an especially hostile [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] call him out on his original written review of the film, [[RuleOfThree and]] realizing his mistake while Spoony sarcastically speculates on the symbolism of the aforementioned scene.
