Awesome: The Cinema Snob
  • The montage/music video he made setting footage from Strike of the Panther to "No Easy Way Out" from Rocky IV.
  • His review of Cannibal Holocaust - the whole damn thirty minute thing. It is absolutely wonderful (in a disturbing way).
    • He gets double the amount of awesome points for refusing to show the scenes depicting actual animal deaths.
  • The Snob identifies two in his review of Hitler - Dead or Alive, wherein Ward Bond shoots down a German fighter plane with a Tommy gun and SHAVES HITLER.
  • While reviewing Child Bride, he can barely bring himself to make any jokes, and mostly just expresses genuine disgust with the subject matter.
    Priest: If anyone has a reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony...
    Snob: SHE'S TWELVE!
    • This doesn't keep the episode from being a non-stop Crowning Moment of Funny, either.
    • He begins the review by showing a clip of Mike Nelson and Kevin Murphy talking about the film as one they refused to riff on, and the Snob just says, "Well, I don't have any standards... I'll do it." That's bravery.
  • The entire Maniac review is a giant Take That towards all the critics that didn't realize the violent film about a serial killer was a violent film about a serial killer.
  • The opening bumper to his Guyana: Cult of the Damned review. Brad starts off with reading an email from one of his 'fans', expressing disappointment in him for making fun of a dark chapter of American history in his previous review (The Helter-Skelter Murders), and proceeds to tell him how to do his job by 'suggesting' he stick to porno parodies and exploitation films. Brad considers this for a moment, and then promptly disregards it. Snob doesn't take shit from just anybody, after all.
    Snob: Damn... okay, well... shit. Okay, so... [Manic Grin] Let's do it again!
  • When Oancitizen called out other TGWTG reviewers for being sheltered in the review for Sweet Movie, even he had to acknowledge that the Cinema Snob had him beat with E.T. the Porno.
  • The teaser trailer for The Cinema Snob Movie
  • Brad promised to review any DVD sent to him. So when someone sent in Guys Gone Wild: Young And Hung, [1], he lived up to his word and reviewed it. Keep in mind, while he reviews porn as the Snob all the time, it's usually Porn with Plot. This is just a bunch of naked guys... and he still makes it hilarious.
  • Brad showing off his knowledge of the Super Mario Bros. series, making better references than the porno spoof he was reviewing.
    • He managed to make humping the air while Super Mario Bros. sound effects play an awesome moment.
  • His explanation for why Alan from Return to Sleepaway Camp is an unlikable Jerkass who is just as bad as his bullies in comparison to Angela from the original.
  • The opening to his Water Power video, if you're a Frank Zappa fan.
  • At the conclusion of his Heartbeeps review, Brad steps out of character and actually tries to justify the film's existence.
    • Opening and closing the review with Andy Kaufman trashing the film.
  • The Gayracula review does an impressive job of humorously mocking a really bad gay porno without lapsing into homophobia.
  • The Snob's appreciation and defense for James Spader in the Endless Love review.
  • His review of Mommie Dearest, viciously mocking the film's 'camp' reputation and razzies as being unwarranted.
    • His utter contempt for the Razzies and the people who vote for them; We might have expected him to run with the 'GARBAGE DAY!!'-esque popularity of the "Nooooooo. Wiiirrreeee! HANGARRRRSSSSSS!" scene, but instead, he hilariously decries the people who turned it into a meme, and shows the scene nearly in full, exposing just how terrifying the scene actually is.
      • Note that he acknowledges how people can find the scene over-the-top, and that "NO WIRE HANGERS EVER" is a very quotable line, but at the end of the day, the scene still shows child abuse. And he doesn't think that the people who do find that scene funny are bad people or should be shamed for thinking it.
    • And then he ends the review by taking his glasses, going out of character into Brad mode, and proclaiming that Faye Dunaway's performance as Joan Crawford might be the greatest movie performance of all time.
  • The Friday The 13th Part 3 review is in actual 3-D with the help of Ed Glaser; it may be a first for an online review.
  • Always going out of his way to note that Chiklis is actually an awesome John Belushi in Wired, in spite of the film being a terrible anti-drug after school special and a fairly shallow exploration of Belushi's life in general.
  • The freakout in homage to the scene from The Stepfather during the review of the film, where the titular killer forgets which identity he's meant to be using momentarily. Brad starts freaking out in front of a mirror, trying to figure out whether he's the host of The Big Box, Kung-Tai Ted, Eighties Dan, or the Snob. If you didn't believe Brad could act based on some of his previous efforts, that scene just might sway you, he's that authentic.
  • In his review to Driller: A Sexual Thriller he manages to review the porn parody of Michael Jackson's Thriller video without doing any poor taste jokes toward Michael Jackson and with that makes the review enjoyable for MJ fans as well. This also counts as an heartwarming as well.
