Reciting AM's speech at the end of Roberto Benigni's Pinocchio.
Oancitizen's utter evisceration of Exterminating Angels
Narrator: "Why does sex lead to such violence and hypocrisy over matters that are no more than a tempest in a teapot?"
Oancitizen: "Because sex, for human beings, is a high risk, high stakes game that provides not only the problems of physical satisfaction and emotional security, but also the promise that your DNA will be passed on to another generation. It is because of these high stakes that it has become such a competitive enterprise, and the reason society has so many taboos, regulations and passions surrounding it. There, I solved your movie you insensitive asshat."
The crowning moment, though, comes at the end.
Oancitizen: "Jean-Claude Brisseau makes an erotic thriller by asking women to masturbate on camera for him. He gets punished for it. So he decides to make a film exploring his feelings about it. Okay, makes sense, tough time in his life, probably wanted to think it through for a while. But then he makes a movie, full of male fantasy pornfor which he definitely harassed evenmoreactresses, to answer questions about why this situation arose. And after all that soft-core soul searching, the answer Brisseau gives boils down to 'It's not my fault they love me so much. I just exude this warm charm that makes them open up and get all emotional and'...gah! You know, I don't know if anyone in this film is meant to be sympathetic, but it's certainly not this man who took his very real and very valid accusations of sexual harassment and turned them into a masturbatory fantasy. Jean-Claude Brisseau...fuck you."
Oancitizen: "Wait. Stop. Do you see that? See that guy? See him?" (circles a fat, homely man in his mid-50s) "That's the director. Not the suave, sophisticated, handsome man with the Anthony Stewart Head thing going on - that guy. THIS guy cast THIS guy [the actor playing Francoise] to play him. Now... do you understand... my anger?!?"
His opening speech to his review of 9 Songs. While also a Crowning Moment of Funny, it is all recited so fast and so nonchalantly, it's impressive. Shocking, but very VERY impressive.
A somewhat meta example, but it was quite impressive when he managed to make an analytical and even pretty fair review of A Serbian Film, despite said movie being infamous for its horrific, disturbing content that previousreviewers have understandably deemed, as Kyle himself put it, "unsavory". Granted, it doesn't last, but still! (For comparison's sake, A Serbian Film reduced Phelous to Unstoppable Rage, and Brad Jones's out-of-character review was one of bemused, horrified disgust, urging people not to see it at all.)
One particular moment: describing and explaining the context for the "NEWBORN! PORN!" moment. He actually makes that scene sound necessary.
In a meta sense, when he reviewed Slacker, he did it in the best way possible: phoning it in.
Angels In America. A serious review done with complete sincerity, only two or three minor jokes thrown in to lighten the mood, all in an effort to honor the victims of AIDS. His closing remarks alone are enough to make you tear up a little:
"For World's AIDS Day, we have to remember those who have fallen. The world only spins forward, and they will be citizens. The time has come. Bye, now. You are fabulous each and every one of you and I bless you. More life. The great work begins."
Oancitizen was able to find meaning and theme of Revolutonary Girl Utena and explain in a clear concise way. Jesu Otaku was very impressed. Then the film's end pissed him off by its utter isanity and that made JO happy.
Actually, behind the scenes reveals that JO wrote the speech for him - but that doesn't diminish it.
His entire review for Haxan. Not just because it in itself was a silent film, complete with score, but because of how well-researched it was. He goes into great detail as to why the film was so revolutionary and what it predated or laid the groundwork for.
And then in the commentary of the show, admits that some spots weren't as well researched as the others. Also how he had to deep throat a banana. Twice. For a joke.
His in-depth research of cult playwright and architect Robert Wilson - for a punchline - in his review of Gerry. The man puts effort into these reviews.
Kyle's Melancholia review resonated so strongly with fans that hundreds of them started posting to Twitter, Tumblr and various other social media sites about it, praising Kyle for doing an outstanding job of reviewing and analyzing films in a genre that he loves and making the films and the reviews accessible. Almost all thanked him for speaking so openly, so realistically and with such depth about depression. Many stated that they had been struggling with depression for years and that they had never seen anyone speak so honestly about their illness. Some said that Kyle had given them hope for the first time in ages because they could see that someone out there really did understand.
He speaks Klingon, and can actually say 'To be or not to be' in Klingon.
In his Between the Lines review of Honey Boo Boo, he doesn't point out the silliness of the show or the people in it, but rather blasting the people that watch it, pointing out that more than anything else, it resembles a freakshow, marginalizing an individual and marking them as different from normal people. This culminates in him commenting on how the freakshow has more or less died out nowadays, due to a little thing called political correctness, or as he eloquently puts it,
Basic Human F**king Decency!
Oh, and that last part isn't screamed or emphasized, just delivered in a deadly cold Tranquil Fury at the fact that Honey Boo Boo is essentially a freakshow centered around a six year old.
