Awesome: The Blockbuster Buster
  • Two moments from his A Series of Unfortunate Events review: A) Putting his opinion of the movie as a whole to a holiday song and B) Almost perfectly syncing him mouthing his speech as he is typing it (similar to Lemony Snicket in the film) with his voice dubbed over.
  • For the Dungeons & Dragons review, ERod was about to bust the movie, when the normally shy Nerdlinger goes with a sword and busts it in full angry nerd-rage. Even ERod was impressed by this.
  • In the Jumper review, ERod teleports to another place where he runs the DVD over with a truck.
  • At the end of Halloween Havoc 2011, ERod busts Eclipse, Red Riding Hood, and The Little Vampire with a chainsaw.
  • Also, at the end of his X-3 review, ERod gives us a montage of clips from the movies...set to the 90's cartoon theme. Hell. YES.
  • Meta example from his commentary from his Eragon review: how about the fact that ERod had run out of money to sustain himself, and was consequently going to be evicted from his home. With a week's notice prior to this, the guy's only thought was that, since his next video was likely to be his last, he'd better make it goddamn incredible. The fact that making another video was even on his mind at his time blows me away - whatever you might say about him, this is a guy who clearly loves his fans. The Determinator indeed.
  • Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny. The cameos for Top 10 Hispanic Heroes by The Film Renegado and Angry Joe, marking this as his first video featuring other reviewers
    Angry Joe: "Fine then, I'll go play The Witcher 2 BY MYSELF!" (leaves with a bottle of lotion)
    That SciFi Guy makes a cameo in the Jason X review as well.
  • In his Sucker Punch review, having the grace to admit he didn't get it. With all the Hate Dumb surrounding this movie, that means a lot to those of us who actually like it.
  • His sword-flipping at the beginning of the Gulliver's Travels review. To the music of Tenacious D.
  • With no doubt, ERod really can dance.
  • His anger and disgust at the deaths of a child, a father in front of his daughter, and a pregnant woman in AVP Requiem.
  • Playing the Mortal Kombat theme during the duel between armored talking polar bears in the Golden Compass.
    • His version of "What's This?" from the Nightmare Before Christmas at the end of the review deserves special mention as well.
  • ERod getting ready to bust The Smurfs by using a "Wavebird Controller" to pick himself out of a bunch of pixel sprite icons, including the likes of The Nostalgia Critic, Linkara, AVGN and more, then posing in the same pose as the sprite, all to Street Fighter music.
  • In the scene from Jason X where Rowan seals Jason in the Cryogenic chamber, he plays the music from Terminator 2. Not only is it perfect for this scene, but he blended it in so seamlessly that this troper(who hasn't seen Jason X) actually wondered if it had been in the movie. Bravo ERod, bravo.
  • For Breaking Dawn Part 1:
    • References precisely the situation of supernatural birth in Angel on why Joss Whedon wrote it better than the movie.
    • Unable to show the birth scene because of it's seizure warning, ERod describes the scene and gives his personal opinion, stating that it was a wasted oportunity to represent in an artistic way the contrast of the beginning of life (the birth) and the end of life (the upcoming war). "But, hey. What do I know. I'm just the guy on the Internet!"
    • Without his weapons or Lucille, ERod transforms his arm into Hellboy's fist and busts all five movies.
      • Then catches SHE-Rod mid-fall and they stand in the middle of all the busted movies. Like a Boss!
  • When sending message to the backlash two times (the backlash for his TGWTG parodies and his storyline in ERod vs. Episode One), ERod stablishes that being a reviewer and an entertainer himself can't get upset at the negative feedback or at jokes of himself by other people, because if he did, he would be a big, fat hypocrite. And never loses his cool at the haters either.
  • How about his recent video about Michael Bay casting Megan Fox in the new TMNT movie? And this statement came completely serious and Out of Character: Bay's TMNT movie is officially on his blacklist movie and he's NOT going to watch it for nothing in the world while Megan Fox is on it, even in a small role. That's bold, putting his principles as a hardcore fan of TMNT before having it as a review for the show.
    • It also pains more if you see the situation in his place: putting Megan Fox, a non-actor and eye-candy, on his favorite franchise from all time, is beyond an insult to him. And he, from all people on the Internet, was about to give Bay the benefit of doubt because he was just the producer.
  • At the end of the Conan review he gets...the Master Sword! And he then proceeds to the bust the movie with it!
    • The ending as well, with ERod pulling an Orcus on His Throne while 'Mako' narrates.
  • The entire busting of Battleship! ERod discards Lucille and goes full on rampage with his fists.
  • Getting Doug Jones to appear in his Rocky and Bullwinkle review.
  • The defeat of Lazarus Dark and the reveal of his careful manipulation of the events leading up to it, with the Doctor Who theme in the background.
  • His Top 10 Bruce Campbell Characters video was tweeted by Campbell himself and approved of. See the tweet here.
    • His introductory quote on how he got introduced to Bruce Campbell also counts.
    ERod:When I was a kid, I was a bit of a coward. I was afraid of nearly everything, especially monsters. Movies like Ghostbusters, Beetlejuice, and Enemy Mine would send me screaming to my room and characters like Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, and the Cryptkeeper haunted my nightmares. This all changed one night when I was staying at my grandmother's, and saw a film in which a man picked up a boom stick and told the monsters to GO FUCK THEMSELVES!
  • Busting Garfield 2 with Mjolnir.
  • ERod suiting up after regaining his memory and powers with Hometown Hero playing in the background.
  • His Honest Review of Kick-Ass not only is awesome because ERod calls out Jim Carrey's straw-anti-gun position by not promoting the movie, ERod also told he was a Gun-Shot survivor and, after growing up in a dangerous neighbourhood, is this what makes Kick-Ass so special for him.
  • His Casting Couch for Batman Villains ends with him being teleported to Linkara, where the two begin to square off for what seems like an awesome crossover review to mark E-Rod's anniversary. Bonus points for it being the first time E-Rod has so much as been seen in the same room as a TGWTG review, let alone do a crossover.
  • The duel with Stephanie Meyer.
  • Him beating up Uwe Boll at the end of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine"... and forcing him to watch a marathon of his infamous game movies.
  • He gets angry at how Martian society as portrayed in Mars Needs Moms essentially commits mass-murder (both Martians and non-Martians) on a regular basis. What really inspires his anger, though, is the fact that it's a kid's movie, as well as one of the protagonists' major complaints about her society is that it has no color, even though one would think she would complain about the mass-murder. At the end of the review he calls out the film for not just looking ugly, but being ugly and mean-spirited all around.
    • He's challenged to think of things more awesome than a world full of trash. Instead of doing the obvious and giving mundane pictures (as anything would be better) he pulls up pictures of Sean Pertwee dressed as the Third Doctor, Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion having a lightsaber battle, and Ming-Na Wen cosplaying as Princess Leia.
