* His illustration for the "[[{{Squick}} autoclitoridectomy]]" in ''Film/{{Antichrist}}''. He says he can't show us what happens, so he illustrates it with a RebusBubble involving a kitten and a pair of scissors.

--> '''Oancitizen!He''': Now, I'm going be a half-elf ranger. Here's a character sheet. Now, you can pick anything you want but don't pick half elf or ranger since we need to diversify our skill sets. The talking fox will be the DM.
** "This couple has now made made [[Literature/{{Twilight}} Edward and Bella Cullen]] look like John and Abigail Adams."

** "Remember how when you were a little kid, you used to play that game where the floor was hot lava? She never stopped playing."
** "How many dead babies does one film need to have?!"
** At one point, She claims that "nature is Satan's church". "Either I missed that lesson in Sunday School, or She takes Creator/ComedyCentral as Gospel truth." Cue a clip from [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Woodland Critter Christmas"]].
** "Could spending days alone in terrifying Satan-infested woods doing research on the killing of women by countless cultures across the ages have any adverse effects on a woman's psyche? (Beat) Let's find out!"

* His description of the World of Good Boys:

* A very clever ShoutOut during the last Blue Fairy scene:
-->[[WebVideo/MarzGurl Well, I'm off to Texas to review anime for a living.]]
* "When I die, I will be greeted at the gates of hell by a thin, hyperactive Italian man, who will say to me, 'I'm a fish, gloog gloog.'"
* Pinocchio, at the grave of the Blue Fairy: "I don't want to be alive any more!" Oancitizen, holding a butcher knife: "I can help!"

[[folder:Anatomy of Hell]]
* After hearing the woman's excuse for attempted suicide ("Because I'm a woman"), he exemplifies how flimsy the gendered excuse is:
-->Jeez, man, that's the third time you've ordered pizza this week! why do you keep doing that?\\
BECAUSE I'M A MAN! (continues to nom on pizza)
* "Would a club catering to homosexual men even HAVE a ladies' restroom?"

* "Hi! I'm Jesus. Leave me out of this."
* "Speaking of ''Film/{{Antichrist}}'', here's an inexplicable humping scene."
* "Because all men are, have been, or will be gay prostitutes. I haven't found a suitable pimp yet, but I ''am'' working on it."
* He suddenly has an epiphany! The main character was going through a bad part of her life, and just needed a ''WebVideo/SassyGayFriend''.
-->"She's a stupid bitch."

* Oancitizen considering it ludicrous that the protagonist of ''Literature/{{Perfume}}'' could enrapture people so heavily through scent alone... at least, until he considers [[Advertising/TheManYourManCouldSmellLike Isaiah Mustafa]].
* Kyle explaining the basis of the character Jean-Baptiste Grenouille[[note]] Yes, he's a Frenchman with the last name 'Frog'. Go with it.[[/note]]
-->'''Kyle:''' In Süskind's novel, this is the key to his alienation: Jean-Baptiste Grenouille's sensory input cripples his emotional output, and so we see--

-->'''Kyle:''' [''astounded''] Oh my God he's ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}!
* "[[FauxSymbolism HE IS JESUS!!!]]"

--> "[[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Riff raff, street rat, I don't buy that!]]"
* Lampshading the protagonist's being a walking MentorOccupationalHazard by saying this about [[ItMakesSenseInContext leaving a cave]]: the cave was later shot in the stalactites during a 3 a.m. drug store robbery.

* The ending of the ''Film/{{Gerry}}'' review has Oancitizen very slowly walking to the kitchen as WebVideo/DiamandaHagan, Creator/AllisonPregler, Creator/ApolloZHack and Derek of Audible Underwear hack his feed. Apollo and Derek try to shut it off, Allison starts having ''Film/{{Gerry}}'' flashbacks, and Hagan keeps insisting on just solving the problem by nuking D.C. ("I've always wanted an excuse to nuke a major world capital!")
* The Book of Exodus had less wandering through the desert!
* Giving the audience a break from the terrible movie -- by showing a video of a cockatoo dancing to bad HipHop. Specifically Whip My Hair by Music/WillowSmith.
* Oancitizen's singing different songs over the pair of Gerrys marching was hilarious! Including [[Theatre/LesMiserables Do You Hear the People Sing]].
** Probably the two funniest songs sung in this sequence are "500 Miles" by Music/TheProclaimers, and then Oan ends it all with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBdKlNsuPd4 his own theme song]].
** Even better -- as he ends the joke, he ''loses his patience and screams in frustration.''
--->'''''They're still going!'''''
* The fake movie trailer: "This summer. '''[[Creator/MattDamon Damon]].''' '''In.''' ''[[Film/TheBourneSeries The Bourne]] [[LeaveTheCameraRunning Monotony]]'', Rated PG-13."
* Allison aka Obscurus Lupa appears at the start and just stares at him. She warns him off the movie, but is driven away by his condescension.
--> '''Oan:''' [sad] Lupa doesn't like me. [[MoodWhiplash Anyway]], let's look at ''Film/{{Gerry}}''.
** After a three-minute shot just following a car, it starts to sink in:
--> '''Oan:''' Lupa...? Please come back?
* This gem.
--> So, "Gerry" is now "[[Franchise/TheSmurfs Smurf]]."
* "Gerry Damon walks towards the highway like his diaper is full and the movie ends with in a stranger's car."
* "Gerry is owned by My Cactus."

[[folder:Ken Park]]
* In his review of ''Film/KenPark'', [[AsianHookerStereotype the slutty Asian girl, Peaches, is with her white boyfriend Curtis]], both in their underwear and her tying him to her bed, ready to get it on, Curtis staring at her crouch and says "Jesus Christ" in awe. Cue Peaches' very religious father driving home.
--> '''Oan!Peaches' Father:''' [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment I heard that Curtis!]]
* Also Oancitizen's slowly fading hopes that a sex scene with "some weaselly little pissant" and the mom of his girlfriend was just a dream and not real.
-->''And he wakes up! ...He wakes up! ...I'm going to assume that cut symbolizes him waking up.''
* His freaked out reaction to a scene of a teen preforming auto-asphyxiation on himself as he masturbates to a tennis game on TV while his grandparents play tennis at the same time.
--> '''Oan:''' DEAR GOD, IS THIS SCENE IN REAL TIME?!?! STOP THAT! You'll go blind! ''I'LL'' go blind!

* The description of the "Sex Not Bombs" room:
-->'''Oancitizen''': She's watching numerous people engage in simultaneously pleasurable experiences of a sexual nature.
-->'''[[MemeticMutation O RLY? Owl]]''': O RGY?
-->'''Oancitizen''': YA RGY!

* This guy apparently learned his oratory skills from [[Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff Ferris Bueller]] of Illinois.
* "It makes as much sense as a pairing between UsefulNotes/JeffersonDavis and UsefulNotes/UlyssesSGrant." *beat* "[[RuleThirtyFour Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no--]]"

* "[[Creator/TheFiresignTheatre All out for Fort Stinkindesert!]]"
* "[[Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun This man is a genius!]]"
* [[Film/TopGun "Playing with the Boys"]] over a naked proto-volleyball game, as if it hadn't got enough HoYay.

[[folder:WR: Mysteries of the Organism]]
* He says that the soundtrack for a sex scene is probably the worst lovemaking soundtrack since John Philip Sousa. And then promptly shows the scene set to a Sousa march to show how accurate that is. There's just something funny about watching people having sex to Stars and Stripes Forever. And there's a GeniusBonus when you realize that the couple having sex are communists in the former UsefulNotes/{{Yugoslavia}}, so yeah, irony.
** From the same review, his panicked calling of [[Creator/AllisonPregler Obscurus Lupa]], WebVideo/DiamandaHagan, and Creator/ApolloZHack upon the film's completion and ultimate "message" (that men who don't have sex become murderous.)
* When the character Milena gets to a point in a speech at which she says that children ought to be more exposed to and encouraged to dip into sexuality, he points out that those children she's talking about would later go on to make ''Film/ASerbianFilm''.

[[folder:What is It?]]

* This bit from the scene where Crispin Glover’s character is introduced.

'''Oan:''' [[YouCantHandleTheParody The truth is something you cannot handle!]] [beat] I screwed it up. Shit!
* The end of the review:[[spoiler: "How did I miss!?"]]
* His reaction to TheReveal that Zed's religion was based on ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', after listing off increasingly obscure religions and philosophers.
-->'''Kyle:''' The Wizard of... oh, wait- OH! OW!
-->'''Zed:''' The Wizard of Oz. Zardoz.
-->'''Kyle:''' AAAAUGH!
-->'''Zed:''' ''The Wizard of Oz'' was a fairy story about an old man that frightened people with a loud voice and big mask.
-->'''Kyle:''' [[GoMadFromTheRevelation Sean Connery is Dorothy! SEAN CONNERY IS DOROTHY!]]

[[folder:We Are The Strange]]
* Calling it [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld Scott Pilgrim vs. Rational Thinking]]
* His interpretation of eMMM's charades:
--> "Take this quarter, feed it to me, then do the monkey. That way we can stomp grapes and make wine."
* Every time he calls back to the notes Roo of the Website/ClanOfTheGrayWolf took for him.
-->'''Roo:''' I... took notes...
-->'''Kyle:''' [enthusiastically] Oh ''good'' man! [snatches]
* He brings up how the movie took cue from two styles of anime. The calm kind (showing a calm scene from ''Anime/SpiritedAway'') and the "what-the-fuck" kind (showing a scene from Garzeys Wing).
* "Ah, yes, this is what Campbell would've called ''(the villain suddenly rises from apparent death)'' - this is what Campbell would've called the '[[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]] is not dead' moment."
* "So yes Virginia, this is a feminist movie. That's why there's only [[TheSmurfettePrinciple one female character]]."

[[folder:Exterminating Angels]]
* He points out the Nineties synth strings playing over the lesbian 3-way and how they'd sound like something Richard Norton and Cynthia Rothrock would fight to. Cut to... Richard Norton and Cynthia Rothrock fighting, then getting distracted by the lesbian 3-way.
** Also, Cynthia Rothrock is voiced by Allison Pregler.
* The opening, where he reads a book called "Feminism & Pornography"... and then [[spoiler: turns it on the side like he's actually reading a porn magazine]].
* This bit from the beginning:

[[folder:Sweet Movie]]
* "She said 'Film/TriumphOfTheWill'. We're barely into the first act and we've already gone full [[GodwinsLaw Godwin]]."
* Later,
-->'''Oancitizen:''' "Then [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible an OBGYN unicycles into the room]] and...[[ARareSentence I just said that sentence out loud, didn't I]]?"
* Oancitizen ''losing his shit'' when the movie decides to show StockFootage ''of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katyn_massacre a Soviet atrocity]].''

* During a particularly bizarre scene of a naked man acting like a baby while a clothed man straddles him and attempts to do...something, Oancitizen decides to cut to "something more pleasant". Cue footage from [[spoiler:''Film/BattlefieldEarth''.]]
* His rant at the end towards the other members of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses for being sheltered:
-->[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic You]]! ''Film/TheGarbagePailKidsMovie''? At least the vomit was ''fake''! [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick You!]] ''Film/{{Showgirls}}''? At least the sex scenes were ''funny''! [[Creator/AllisonPregler You]]! ''Pocket Ninjas''? Robert Z'Dar never got naked in front of those kids! [[WebVideo/RolloT All]] [[WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows of]] [[WebVideo/JesuOtaku you]][[WebVideo/YRulerOfTime !]] ''Film/TheLastAirbender''? [[Creator/MNightShyamalan Shyamalan]] didn't intercut his battle scenes with ''actual'' war footage! [[WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob You]]! ''E.T. the Porno''? ...well, you've got me there.
* Oan suggesting that Miss Canada's glowing... area is stored in Marsellus Wallace's briefcase in ''Film/PulpFiction''.
* In regards to Anna having sex with the sailor on the deck of her ship, in public view: "Despite what you may have heard...even in ''Amsterdam'', you can't get away with this."
---> "I live three blocks from the red light district, and I think you're being gross!"
* After the Texan remarks that in marrying, he's gained a woman who's also a sanitation system, it cuts to Oan air-guitaring and singing 'Your body is a sewage plant' to the tune of John Mayer's "Your Body Is A Wonderland".
* After Miss Canada receives a golden shower from her husband (who has a golden penis), he cuts to a scene from ''Film/AustinPowersInGoldmember'' for the obvious joke.
--> '''Goldmember:''' Hey, everybody, I'm from Holland! Isn't that weird?
--> '''Kyle:''' (in Dutch) Kiss my dirty asshole, cancer-suffering nutbag.
* "Look, ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis one]]''! ONE! RATIONAL! SELF AWARE! HUMAN! BEING! '''THAT IS ALL! I ASK!'''"

* “Ask yourself this; if you were 9 years old, and you saw something make [[https://goo.gl/images/ARdt9h that face]] at you... would you follow it?”
* When witnessing the appearance of some UncannyValley animals; he pauses, takes a sip of Listerine, spits it out, then ScreamsLikeALittleGirl.

[[folder:9 Songs]]
* The opening speech, which uses more terms for sex than you even thought were possible.
* The fanfare when he finally finds a parallel between the sex scenes and the boyfriend being a glaciologist.
* "I wish I could tell my 5th grade self that for my job I would watch hours of sex and ''be bored by it''."

[[folder:Naked Lunch]]
* He describes the typewriter being melted and reforged "by the finest Elven smithies into Mugwump, Flame of the West!"
* "Maybe you oughtta try your hand at writing pornography." "I tried. Nobody liked my ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' SlashFic. [[WebVideo/BennettTheSage Apparently, people think]] [[Film/PinkFlamingos eating poop is weird.]]"
* After Roy Scheider "[[ItMakesSenseInContext comes out]]" of Fadilah: "All you people who saw ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' must be freaking out. And all you people who saw ''Film/AllThatJazz'' must be shrugging your shoulders."

* "BECAUSE! TREES!" That counts as an in-universe CMOF; Kyle literally falls out of his chair laughing.
** His ostrich voice, and later apologizing for it.

[[folder:The Man Who Fell to Earth]]
* "He's a man from MAAA-oh, God DAMN that's high!"
* "'Cause heeeeeere is a movie with [[{{Aesop}} a message]]. Soooorry that it's theeeeere. But it has some nudes, so if that does it for you..."

-->'''Woman:''' You know, you're not at all like my father.
-->'''Oancitizen:''' ''(to the tune of "Fame")'' Pain.
* When Thomas spaces out while seeing members of his race, Mary-Lou calls out to him. "Tommy? Tommy?" Oancitizen sings [[Music/{{Tommy}} "Tommy, Can You Hear Me?"]] for a few bars before realizing his mistake[[note]]"Tommy, Can You Hear Me" is a song by Music/TheWho, not David Bowie -- there ''is'' a completely different song called "Can You Hear Me" on Bowie's ''Music/YoungAmericans''[[/note]] and abandoning it.
* "'''''GUN'' Sex!'''" The best part about this is his look of confused WTF as he tries to figure out what is going on and why it is even there in the first place.
* Calling in Creator/JewWario, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick, WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows and WebVideo/ObscurusLupa to do a cover of "Magic Dance". The best part is [=JewWario=] back in [[WebVideo/SuburbanKnights his Jareth costume]].

[[folder:Trash Humpers]]
* He expects one of the humpers to start a [[WebVideo/RedLetterMedia 90 minute]] ''Franchise/StarWars'' review. "OH MY GOD! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOUR FACE!"
** Later on, when a slurring old man appears, he says that he wasted the Mr. Plinkett joke.
* When he sees a man tell a blatantly homophobic "joke" that has no real punchline, he tells a "joke" in a similar style that mocks the movie.
-->So this idiot made a movie about people that society rightly rejected on an old VHS camera, and he sold it, and people think he's some sort of visionary.
* "So, these guys are like Henry David Thoreau crossed with ComicBook/TheJoker... I would've guessed they were the Bloods crossed with the Progeria Support Group, but whatever."
* After a while, Kyle [[FridgeLogic makes a discovery]]: the cameraman trash humper is [[spoiler:played by [[CreatorCameo Harmony Korine himself]]]]. This leads to Kyle making an [[CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon impassioned declaration]]:
-->'''Kyle''': (fast, slightly panicked) Listen, Korine, if I ever meet you in real life, ''I will end you''. (starting to tear up) I will take apart your camera and feed it to you, you will suffer, I ''swear to God''... [[VideoGame/{{Civilization}} Our words are backed with nuclear weapons]], I- (breaks down sobbing)
* "I'd tell this movie to eat my shit, but I'm afraid it might actually be into that."
* The ending, where [[EarWorm "Make it, make it, don't fake it" gets stuck in Kyle's head]]. [[spoiler:Followed by him getting in bed with his garbage bin.]]

* Oancitizen taking his RunningGag involving milk to new heights by "reenacting" the scene where [[spoiler: one of the characters jerks off, cums in his hand, then licks it off]]. He then turns to the camera and says in the most upbeat voice possible, "Scene!"
* [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall '90s Kid]] shows up. "Oh God, I forgot you existed."
** And then Oancitizen sends him away, broken and confused, by claiming that Nirvana was directly responsible for the formation of Music/{{Nickelback}}.
* His cherry response to the first line in the movie (it's Creator/RoseMcGowan saying [[PrecisionFStrike Fuck!]])
* "Hello, and welcome to We're-Too-Dumb-Not-To-Wear-Green-In-Front-Of-A-Green-Screen News."
* His increasing ire of the films motif with "666". His response to when Rose Mcgowan's character's cumulative SAT score is said to be 666 by a bunch of FBI guys.
--> '''"SHITSUCKING''' '''[[CountryMatters THUNDERCUNT!]]"'''

* One scene with the two brothers on an internet sex chat drove Oan to play clips of "[[Film/TheHumanCentipede The]] [[WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob Human]] [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spider]]"
* After the art curator says that [[InsaneTrollLogic we wouldn't have the Internet without AIDS]], Oancitizen goes on a long, [[ShownTheirWork detailed]] explanation of the military and commercial origins of the Internet. He then says, "But, y'know... ''your'' explanation works, too."
* "...I guess my opinion will just oscillate between those two view points. Back and forth. Forever." *cheerful wave* "Byeeeeee!"
* Describing the film's sudden, out-of-place lines of overly pretentious dialogue as "profundity bombs," complete with whistling and explosion sound effects.

[[folder:The Brown Bunny]]
* His comments on the folk-heavy soundtrack, to which he says, "I'm not sure this soundtrack is working. Change it up." [[spoiler: Cue the opening music from ''Film/{{Birdemic}}''.]]

* His growing look of horrific realization when Gallo drives through the salt flats where ''Film/{{Gerry}}'' was filmed.
* "He [Gallo] picks one [a prostitute] up and he does terrible, nasty things to her - he buys her a [=McDonald's=] lunch, the BASTARD!"
** (to the tune of Old Susanna) Ha-haha-haha-haha-haha-haha-haha, JOKE." With the word "joke" said completely straight-faced and deadpan.
* [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Experience BJ!]]

* "What's that, Mr. Squirrel? What do you mean, '[[Film/{{Antichrist}} Chaos reigns]]'?"
* His attempt at seeing the movie with the mind of a child, ending in a high pitched '''''WHAT THE FUCK?!?'''''
* So the moral of this film is 'Children are sociopathic morons'. Good for you!
* "Her mother is played by Creator/JenniferTilly, in a role which, 30 years earlier, would have been played by Creator/TerryJones."

[[folder:A Serbian Film]]
* His take on TheAristocrats joke, down to subverting the punchline.
* Just his dumbfounded look at the very beginning of the review.
* The end. Just the end. After he finishes his review, the rage he's managed to suppress results in him getting a pretty nasty nosebleed before he snaps.
* "Seriously, I'm evil [[Creator/DarkMazeStudios Ed Glaser]]."
* "Haha! His name is Fuckmir!" in the middle of his plot summary.
* Kyle manging to get through the entire movie with his sanity intact and giving a through and thoughtful analysis of it... [[UnstoppableRage Then completely losing it at the end]] [[CrossesTheLineTwice and trying to get NATO to bomb Serbia off the map.]]
** The NATO guy's deadpan rant: "And you're getting your panties in a bundle just because some angry young Serb went and made a horror film that's actually horrifying, you sheltered little boob."
** Then to prove just how crazy the movie made Kyle, he later asks for ''fictional'' bombs to be dropped on them and still acts like a total mad man about it, reveling in his "revenge".

[[folder:Hamlet The Vampire Slayer]]
* Allison/Lupa offhandedly mentions Shakespeare, and Kyle hears it... [[SuperSenses from the other side of the hotel.]]
-->'''Lupa:''' I've been reviewing horrible movies for ''far'' too long. Today, I'm gonna treat you to something ''classy''; something ''artistic''. Today, I'm treating you... to ''Shakespeare''.
-->'''Kyle:''' [''Looks up from his copy of The Franchise/EvilDead Companion''] [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY Shahkespeeahr?!]]
--> [''Lupa explaining the gist of the movie, followed by a scene of Kyle booking it from one end of the hotel to the other.'']
* Pretty much any scene where Kyle's classical theatre training and high-brow remarks blow right past Lupa, but his first scene with her is the winner:
-->'''Kyle:''' How blessed am I in my just censure, in my true opinion! Alack, for lesser knowledge! how accursed in being so blessed! There may be in the cup a spider steep'd, and one may drink, depart, and partake no venom, for his knowledge is not infected: but if one present the abhorr'd ingredient to his eye, make known how he hath drunk, he cracks his gorge, his sides, with violent hefts. I have drunk, and seen the spider. There is a plot against my niche, my show; all's true that is mistrusted: thou hast usurped my art! And I remain a pinch'd thing; yea, a very trick for you to play at will! [[[note]]"Theatre/TheWintersTale; Act 2, Scene 1, Lines 31 through 62!"[[/note]]
-->'''Lupa:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint ...you drank a spider?!]]
* "So I heard you're watching Hamlet..."
* [[{{Squick}} "Incest Joke!"]]
-->'''Kyle:''' [[DeadpanSnarker Ew.]]
* The blooper reel of the review is almost as funny as the review itself. Kyle just can't keep a straight face when Lupa says "It's funny because it's poop!". They try her repeating it over and over so that he gets used to the beat of it ("Again!"), and Lupa tells him to "think of the most horrible thing you can think of" which results in Kyle first putting on a really serious face... and then cracking up again.

[[folder:Flesh For Frankenstein]]
* The opening, where he's reading from the original novel but it's pretty clear he's quoting ''Film/YoungFrankenstein''. "My grandfather's work was doo-doo!" In fact, the whole review is peppered with ''Young Frankenstein'' references, and why the hell not? It's the funniest Frankenstein movie ever.
* Censoring a pair of breasts with the "nice knockers" scene from ''Young Frankenstein''
* Also, "Oh, sweet mystery of life, at last I've found yooouuu!!" in the sex scene.
* The return of the subtitles.
* Frankenstein gets stabbed in the galbladder. Oan's response? "Quick, fuck it!"
* Oan, on Otto attempting to screw the female zombie:
-->Willhepicktherightonewillhepicktherightone—NO! I'm sorry, that's the ''wrong hole!''

* The intro. "That's right Romero fans, board up your windows and rev up your chainsaws, because we're going to talk about [[BaitandSwitch gay]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext porn]]".
* After Otto eats a man he just slept with: "He should have seen this coming. [[Franchise/ResidentEvil The T-Virus]] is a serious issue, and [[VideoGame/DeadRising Zombrex]], while effective, is ''never'' cheap."

* Kyle getting repeatedly disgusted at two brothers who have sex with each other.
* His reactions to seeing both [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Richard O'Brien and "Little Nell" Campbell]]. Kyle even notices O'Brien is technically doing "the time warp" when showing the Queen the future of her kingdom.
* The entirety of Kyle's reaction to [[spoiler:Old Man Hitler.]]

[[folder:Anonymous is a Pile of Crap]]
* Oan and Ven Gethenian completely ''eviscerate'' the Creator/RolandEmmerich film ''{{Film/Anonymous}}''. The review is one long Moment of Funny, as well a CrowningMomentOfAwesome. The best and funniest parts of the review are Ven's expressions as Oan describes the utter insanity they saw on screen.
* Kyle asks Ven what he thought of the movie. He replies with a FacePalm. "Good answer."
* The BigWhat at the massive TimeyWimeyBall the writers painted themselves into.
* Ven's EurekaMoment.
-->'''Ven''': "Hey. ''*snaps fingers*'' You remember how I started out saying that what this guy's gonna do, [[EarthShatteringKaboom he should be blowing up planets]], [[DisasterMovie instead he blows the globe]]. [[JustForPun He actually]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globe_Theatre does that!]]"
-->'''Kyle''': (''false-slaps him'')
* Both Oan and Ven break down when they realize [[spoiler:that the movie had a built-in escape mechanism by presenting its plot as an in-universe play]]. Oan then recites Puck's closing monologue from ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'' as he tries to put himself back together.

* The '''whole review'''. [[spoiler: Seeing a half-awake Oancitizen phone it in is freaking ''brilliant''.]]
** "...like, um, [[ItMakesSenseInContext Television Back]]. Distant cousin of {{Music/Radiohead}}." *pause* "Ha, ha."
* "We doing the thing? [camera nods "yes"] [[DullSurprise Oh, fuck.]]"
* "Uh, [[ReadingTheStageDirectionsOutLoud read, read, read]], um... ...''{{Film/Slacker}}''?"
* "Am I talking a lot of bullshit? [camera nods "yes"] (snickering)"

[[folder:The Fall]]
* The ending song.
* "LECTURE ALERT!" ("Did you know the makers of the [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Continuity Alarm]] did personalized versions?")
* Given the cast is filled with ethnic types, the [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers Captain Planet]] summon.
* Discussing a character named Luigi brings up [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros the other Luigi]]...
* "Damn, that's like the Michael Phelps of elephants." *pause* "Michael Phelephant."

[[folder:Goodbye Twentieth Century]]
* "Also, [[MortalKombat Kano]] found Jesus." '''CHRISTIANITY'''
* Everything about the funeral scene. EVERYTHING. From the Steve Jobs joke (complete with victory pose and TooSoon disclaimer) to the EPIC BigLippedAlligatorMoment that occurs shortly afterwards. The utterly dumbfounded look on Kyle's face doesn't even begin to describe it.
* Kyle's NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer about when he saw the film for the first time.
-->"True story: when I first saw this film, I tweeted what I saw, and someone on Twitter responded, 'Are you reading aloud from a {{trollfic}}?'"
* "[[ARareSentence Nazi Harry Dumbledore just punched Santa in the face.]] ''Nazi Harry Dumbledore just punched Santa in the face.''"

[[folder: The Dork Ages: My Eighth Grade History Project (done in the style of Pop-Up Video)]]
--> I think this girl agreed to help me with this project out of pity.
--> She has since gone on to found a non-profit organization that supports girl's soccer in South Africa.
--> I have since gone on to squirt corn syrup up my nose, hump a trash can and scream "fuck" on the internet.
--> I have made good life decisions.

[[folder: Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai]]
* Mistaking hip hop producer RZA for "Royal Zoological Administration".
* "You know me, I'm WebVideo/TheRapCritic!"
--> '''Oan:''' Oh, right, yes. And what do you do? \\
'''Rap Critic:''' [stares]
* Watching a cool gunfight [[PassThePopcorn whilst eating a bowl of popcorn]]: "Holy sh- this is still art, right?"
* Condensing his analysis of the film into rap over an instrumental of Music/WuTangClan's "C.R.E.A.M.".
* "Which is totally an apt analogy, and not just a lame excuse to name-drop Monet like the stuck-up douche that I am."
* Launching into a Yo Dawg meme upon seeing the scene with the dog in it.
* "Wait, I thought you already reviewed ''Film/TheBrownBunny''."
* The Rap Critic actually giving a rating to Kyle's rap.
--> '''Rap Critic:''' Eh, [shrugs] 2 out of 5.

[[folder: The Discovery of Heaven]]
* "[[TitleDrop And we have a title!]]"
* Pointing out how strange it is for Communists to play Bach at a rally.
* Stephen Fry proves that among his many talents... he can't dance.
* "Heaven falls into panic because... an actual discovery of Heaven may restore faith in God... [[FridgeLogic Which they don't want for some reason]]... This might have been better explained in the book."
* The running gag of showing Creator/StephenFry's Twitter page was already great, but the best use of it has to be:
--> How did you know I was in Rome?
--> (Cut to Twitter page) ZOMG I found a gelato place with a view of the Colosseum! Rome = win!]
* Oancitizen [[Series/{{QI}} getting the klaxon.]]

[[folder: Angels in America]]
* He declares the end of "Millennium Approaches" to best the "Best. Cliffhanger. EVER." It then cuts to the cliffhanger of "[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Best of Both Worlds, Part I.]]"
-->''Better than that.'' Pfft. Nerds.

[[folder: Shakespeare, Film and Kenneth Branagh: A Retrospective]]
* "It says I'm supposed to poison him? That's boring--EAT CHANDELIER, BITCH!"
* "Oh, my God, Creator/{{Emma|Thompson}}, be my bride! Oh, excuse me..."

[[folder: Vinyl]]
* How long was his review of Creator/AndyWarhol's Vinyl? EXACTLY 15 minutes. Doubles as a Moment of Awesome.
* After talking about how the actors were likely dragged there tired and stoned, with no time to rehearse and no solid direction from Warhol: "By the way, the [[WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee fourth year shoot]] was fun."
* The build-up to the reveal that it's an adaptation of ''Film/AClockworkOrange'' is just perfect pacing.
* "Instead of begging and screaming about the horrors he's being subjected to, he describes the films with all the passion of a man who just discovered that Lex Luthor once stole forty cakes."

[[folder: The Devils]]
* Kyle is puzzled that anyone would find Creator/OliverReed so attractive when he's a 'round faced dark haired snobby guy with prominent facial hair', and even more puzzled when he shows some of the female reviewers a picture of Oliver Reed, [[RunningGag and they all swoon]].
** Even ''WebVideo/DiamandaHagan'' is not immune to the Reed. Kyle is more terrified than puzzled by that.
--> Kyle (Staring at the picture in shock) I must only use this power for good.
** Also, Allison and Diamanda's reactions to Kyle asking for confirmation that they are indeed women before showing them the picture.
*** Diamanda's baffled response--"Why does everyone keep asking me that?"--is funnier in context: when she was first accepted at Channel Awesome, some viewers expressed confusion about her gender.
*** Also HilariousInHindsight considering he didn't ask WebVideo/JesuOtaku the same question, since he has come out as trans.
* "Hmm..what's a good word here?"
--> '''WebVideo/JesuOtaku:''' [Wakes up] [[RunningGag "Nunfuckery"]] \\
'''Kyle:''' Thank you. Also...[holds up the picture] \\
'''JO:''' Aaaaahhh...[faints again]
* The whole censorship of the 'Rape of Christ' scene, cutting between the aghast expression of the priest in the film and a sign reading 'Orgy of nuns rubbing themselves on a statue of Jesus'. With increasingly quick close ups, to echo the epileptic editing of the film.
* Going further with the aforementioned orgy scene: "Good ''lord'' these nuns are stacked!"
** "[[Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic Oh, how do you solve a problem like hysteria?]]"
** "...the whole thing was a clusterfuck." *shot of nuns disrobing* "And speaking of clusterfucks!"
** And his use of [[http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/thumblarge_473/12645300679ji81J.jpg this nun stock image]] as the scene's GagCensor.
*** That image is now the thumbnail for this very page when you do a search... somehow it all seems fitting.
* After a clip of Grandier defending himself with a dead crocodile against a sword-wielding man: "Okay, that requires context. ({{Beat}}, then smile.) I don't feel like giving it."
* [[Music/JesusChristSuperstar "I... don't know how to love him..."]]
* [[ADateWithRosiePalms "What's black and white and shuddering all over?"]][[note]]The unstated punchline being: "A masturbating nun."[[/note]]
* "The walled white city of Loudun, which, tangentially, would also make an awesome level in ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}''."
* "The Mother Superior, Sister Jean, is... (''{{Beat}}'') ...What's a classier word for ''"bat-shit"''?"

[[folder: W: The Movie]]
* "And at the end of the day, it's pretty hypocritical of me to bash a goofy little internet-distributed movie with [[StylisticSuck cheap special effects]] and a lot of green-screening[[BeatPanel ...]] ''[[WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee Wink.]]''"
* Creator/MichaelMoore, driving around Washington D.C. with a megaphone shouting "[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Hey! Listen!]]"
* Immediately after stating that he wants to stay even-handed politically, [[HypocriticalHumor he tears into George W. Bush without a hint of hesitation.]]
-->[{{beat}}]...Well, ''that'' didn't go well...

[[folder: Even Cowgirls Get the Blues]]
* Every appearance of [[MissingEpisode Crispin Glover]] has him with a snail pasted over his face and referred to as "the guy I don't like to talk about."
* He gives the movie two thumbs up, with hot dogs tied to his thumbs.
* Talking about his difficulties in doing research on the story's philosophy: "Doing a Google search of 'lesbian cowgirls'...didn't help me."
* His comparison of [[SpecialEffectFailure the main character's thumbs]] to [[{{Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate}} Torgo's knees]].

[[folder: The Future]]
* Ven pops in and starts bitching about Miranda July while Oan pushes him right out of the frame as he continues.
* '''[[TheScrappy PAW]] [[MostAnnoyingSound PAW]]'''!
* Eventually, Oan gets so tired of Paw Paw's shrill voice, that he calls [[Creator/AllisonPregler Allison]] to replace her narration for the rest of the movie....which he immediately regrets when she starts [[HamAndCheese taking liberties]] with the script.
* His realization that he may have just made a cute cat video.

[[folder: Sleeping Beauty]]
* A very clever censorship joke involving a former associate-director of the FBI.
* Kyle expresses surprise that Emily Browning can and has been typecast as something narrow as "[[Literature/ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents girl who gets exploited by older]] [[Film/SuckerPunch male figures while unconscious]]." Even more so considering she was almost cast as Bella from ''{{Literature/Twilight}}'', and that had the infamous sleepwatching scene...
* Oan's reaction after woken up by Lucy slamming the chair onto the table.
* When a random male character gives a speech directly to the camera, Kyle first freaks out at the thought that the guy is talking to him, and once the guy shuts up, a crowd of Kyles start cheering and have a fight when one of them says 'encore'.
* TheStinger: [[spoiler:Ven Gethenian drawing Sharpie dicks on Kyle's face while he sleeps!]]

[[folder: Haxan]]
* Oan demonstrates his love for ''The Passion of Joan of Arc'' by stroking the DVD box... then kissing it... then tonguing it.
* The horrors of stop-motion animation are portrayed by ''WesternAnimation/{{Gumby}}'' (scared reaction), [[Franchise/WallaceAndGromit Gromit]] (scared reaction) and the White Rabbit from ''[[CallBack Alice]]'' (non-reaction).
* Trying to figure out how a woman would "fly" with a fat monk... and then cutting to [[Film/{{Dune}} Baron Harkonnen flying]], a scene which is somehow even funnier in black and white.
* Kyle's face when the Devil [[MakesAsMuchSenseInContext starts churning butter evilly]].
* The banana bit.
** Even better? Apparently, when it was filmed (the footage being ran backward for the bit), Kyle ''[[spoiler: deep throated]]'' the banana.
* "Satan fathers an ''ENTIRE STRING OF [[Series/DoctorWho DOCTOR WHO]] VILLAINS!''"
* The ending. [[spoiler: The film's "The End" card displays the word "Slut", and Kyle, in response, flips it off]].

[[folder:The Idiots]]
* Kyle's reaction to learning that Creator/ShiaLaBeouf will be doing actual unsimulated sex in Von Trier's next movie: "Am I looking forward to that? In the words of Mr. [=LaBoeuf=] himself: No, no no, no no no no, no no..."
* After he references in a row ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'', ''Series/{{Community}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'': "I somehow just referenced 3 pieces of middle-brow American comedy reviewing a Danish high-brow art film. I don't know if it says more about me, the movie or American comedy"
* The whole episode, he tries not saying who the director is as having your name credited for directing it is a major no-no in the Dogme 95 movement, opting to call him "Depressertron Van der Nazipants" instead. Then when describing that one of the main characters is the avatar of the director, [[spoiler: Creator/LarsVonTrier]], he mistakenly says his name, resulting in a quick "''Son of a bitch!''"
* The "Word Of The Day" segment, complete with CallBack to his review of ''Shortbus.''
* The ending has him attempt Dogme 95, including a parody of the final scene from the movie. [[spoiler: He immediately gets a call from Channel Awesome HR director Holly Brown telling him he's suspended.]]
* Using "[[Music/WeirdAlYankovic Dare To Be Stupid]]" as the closing music.

[[folder:Vase De Noces]]
* The entire ending of the review, in which the Snob and Phelous get pissed at Oancitizen for beating them to the review--and he counters by shaming them by pointing out that they're fighting over the right to watch a movie about pigfucking.
** Also the Cinema Snob and Phelous talking about bad movies as if they were an exhaustible resource like fossil fuels.
** Phelous keeps calling Kyle "Ralph," while the Snob refers to him as "Mini-Me" at least once.
* While listing the alternate titles, we get an angry BigWordShout when it goes to '''THE PIG FUCKING MOVIE!'''
** Also, this marks the point where Kyle breaks his usual calm, analytical style. Then he flips out and begins a ClusterFBomb, including dissing everyone in the credits. ("FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU AND THE PIG YOU FUCKED IN ON!")
* The first actual scenes of pig sex we see in the review are censored by the DVD cover for ''Film/{{Gordy}}'', and tastefully underscored with "Pig Power in the House".
* His potshots at the analogue synth instrumentals.
-->'''Oan:''' ♪[[Series/ReadingRainbow Butterfly in the sky, I can fly twice as high.]] Take a look, it's in a book, pig-fucking movie♪

* Also a callback to the infamous ''HamletTheVampireSlayer'' review, and especially the bloopers:
-->"It's funny because it's poop!"
* After finishing the movie, he plays the most appropriate clip possible.
-->'''Porky Pig''': [[ThatsAllFolks Th-th-that's all folks!]]
** [[spoiler:Before screaming "''WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!''"]]
* "Music from 2 Girls 1 Cup [[CreditsGag by Satan Himself]]"
* The montage of clips from various media (''Film/ClerksII'', ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'', ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'', ''Creator/FoxNewsChannel'', Creator/LouisCK stand-up, and ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'') to demonstrate that the use of [[BestialityIsDepraved bestiality]] as shock value has lost its effect due to it frequently being used as BlackComedy. It just ''keeps going''.
* "[[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotDidactic This of course symbolizes that the director wants this film to be symbolic]] [[TakeThat fuck this I'm not reading into this.]]"
* The fact [[BestialityIsDepraved bestiality]] [[EveryoneHasStandards is really bothering Kyle.]] "It's this hellish light that illuminates every other aspect of this film! Everything else is pig fuck tinted! And it doesn't matter how much classical music gets played!" [sings] "Here we come a-pig-fucking among the leaves so green..."
* "Dominique Garny has a farm... [[WaxingLyrical E-I-E-I-OH?]]"
* "Mazel tov! Is it kosher to say 'mazel tov' to a pig? Is it even appropriate to think if something is kosher regarding this movie?"

* His rant about the film's terrible science is hysterical, especially the bit about the titular planet behaving like a tourist. [[spoiler:Quickly undercut by [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] chewing him out for ignoring the fact that the emotion is more important than realistic physics and giving Oan shit for nitpicking, but still.]]
* The two planets flirting with each other. Then they kiss, and the impact kills everything on Earth.
* "Lars Von Trier, God help us, ''is trying to be funny''."
* (''As Dunst's cleavage is in prominent view'') "Flashing back to before [[FreudianSlip two large round objects smashed into each other]]... [[ThatCameOutWrong sorry, I don't know why I phrased it like that]]."
* "I ''wish'' there was a sitcom starring [[Film/BloodForDracula Udo]] [[Film/FleshForFrankenstein Kier]]." [[spoiler: ''U's Do Boss!'']]
** Oancitizen imagines Udo Kier walking past Melancholia looming on the horizon and [[TalkToTheHand spitefully ignoring it]].
* "By the way, TV Tropes thinks I'm Catholic. Don't know why."
* "Meanwhile, across the vast far reaches of space, the Zorblon empire receives the first transmissions of the gang-bang scene from ''Film/TheIdiots''. It is decided there and then that the human race would not be allowed to live."
* Ven telling Kyle that he's going to draw title card!Kyle with huge tits, because "Kirsten Dunst has ''awesome'' tits."
* "Yes, son! And if you look closely you can see all the native Melancholians pointing and laughing at us!"
* Whose fault is it at NASA for naming the planet the most depressing name possible? Why, [[spoiler:[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/nasa-mohawk-guy Mohawk Guy]].]]
** And the list of rejected names includes "HappyFunBall" and "Planet Smurf".

* Oan telling off an asshole caller.
-->'''Caller''': Hey man, love your stuff.
-->'''Oan''': Why, thanks!
-->'''Caller''': I just don't get why you hang out with those other losers.
-->'''Oan''': Ha ha, fuck you they're my friends.
* Even though it's presented as a sign of Kyle's growing depression, his description of basically everyone on TGWTG.com as Muppets is hilarious.
--> To be clear he calls the Nostalgia Critic Kermit, the Nostalgia Chick is Miss Piggy, Linkara is Fozzie, Phelous is the Great Gonzo, Film Brain is Scooter, Welshy and Sad Panda are Statler and Waldorf, Todd is Rolf, Cinema Snob is Sam the Eagle, Elisa and Nella are Bunsen and Beaker, Paw is Dr. Teeth, Angry Joe is Animal, Diamanda Hagan is Uncle Deadly/Crazy Harry/Sweetums, Rap Critic is Clifford, Benzaie is the Swedish Chef, and [=ERod=] is... Jason Segel's Muppet brother for some reason.
* Going down the list of disaster movie signposts: "... and they don't have [[Film/DeepImpact a cool-headed black president]] to explain... okay, [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama they probably do have one of those]]."
* Oan telling Van out of the blue about the plot of a film about Marquis De Sade: [[spoiler:where while in prison he has conversations with his three foot long penis. And is a dog. ''And'' a puppet.]]
** Best of all, [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097839/ the movie]] [[PoesLaw is real.]]
* The bloopers have some hilarious moments too.
** It starts off with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick saying "Kyle" sounds weird after saying his name so many times, followed by WebVideo/JesuOtaku accidentally pronouncing it as something closer to [[{{Franchise/Superman}} "Kal-El... hero of Krypton."]]
** Ven asking Kyle to not shout 'Penis!' so loudly, especially not either A, in the direction of the nearby houses, or B, anywhere near the police station.
** Kyle pretending to be a zombie during his walk.
** The guy playing the fan say that he likes his stuff... but he doesn't know how to ad-lib. And he just had a hard time calling anyone bad things.
** When Hagan threatens to cut Oan's balls off ''again'', the camerawoman remarks that "Under circumstances like these I would severely doubt the likelihood of Oan having children."
** Ven and Kyle suddenly start quoting Music/GarfunkelAndOates's ''Sex with ducks'' at each other.
--->'''Camerawoman''': ... the fuck are you quoting?
* The commentary for ''Melancholia'' contains the revelation that [[spoiler:the line "I wanna stuff cigarettes up your butt" was ''actually said'' to Kyle by a LoonyFan.]]
** What news does Ven have as the commentary reaches the final monologue?
--->'''Ven''': By the way, the Escargoancitizen people are now shipping snail-you with a blender.
--->'''Kyle''': '''WHAT??''' ''WHAT?'' What.
** As the credits say "Here's to 50 more [episodes]."
--->'''Ven''': Yay! I'm not fired.
** Kyle starts humming [[WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas "Christmastime is Here"]] as we reach the scene where he walks through DC at night.
--->'''Kyle:''' It's amazing how easy it is to lay the ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' music over this.

[[folder:Nightwatching/Rembrandt's J'Accuse]]
* While Kyle opens the episode speaking in Dutch... [[spoiler:a Dutch citizen off camera calls him out on his accent.]].
** And, for a brief second, [[spoiler:Oan looks ''close to tears over this'']].
** TheStinger: It turns out to be [[spoiler:his brother.]]
** Bonus points for the guy with the camera on Oan's right turning around in confusion.
* After explaining why he's in the Netherlands, Oan wonders what Dutch thing to talk about...
-->'''Kyle''': Peter Greenaway! ...who's British... ...shut up, hear me out.
* When describing Greenaway's verbatim staging to mimic Rembrandt's paintings, [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment it quickly cuts to George Sr. and Buster at the Living Classics Pageant]].
* A little bit of the ol' NotHyperbole comes up during a discussion on staging:
-->'''Kyle''': (while outside) Look at Rembrandt's house, for example. ...no, really, look at Rembrandt's house. (points behind him... to Rembrandt's house) See, see there, [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer that's it]]. See, you can do those things when you're on location, it's ''so'' neat!
* "...Dutch fans are gonna eat this episode ''up''."
* "You get to see Creator/MartinFreeman's [[Film/TheHobbit Bilbo]] and [[MaleFrontalNudity Baggins]]."
* He also decides to pander to ''{{Series/Sherlock}}'' slash fans during those scenes by [[spoiler:pasting Sherlock's head over the woman Martin Freeman is boning.]]
-->'''Kyle''': Website/{{Tumblr}}... here's a freebee.
* He sternly tells the audience to "stop giggling" at the name "Franz Banning '''Cocq'''", [[HypocriticalHumor then uses Banning Cocq's image to censor a naked Rembrandt]].
* "Hills? Hills." *{{Beat}}* *Cut to flat field* "[[TheMountainsOfIllinois Hills! In ]]''[[TheMountainsOfIllinois HOLLAND!]]''"
* The "golden child" in ''Nightwatching'' is a child prostitute... played by a woman who embodies DawsonCasting. Kyle not only makes air quotes, he steps back to have the room to make ''giant'' air quotes.
* Summarizing Greenaway's somewhat conflicted descriptions of the two central figures of the painting:
--> "So Banning Cocq and van Ruytenburch are Gay Roman Satan and Horny Pimp Jesus."
* Kyle parodies the film's occasional [[{{Padding}} "filler" theories]] by devising his own theory like a college student trying to raise the page count of his essay.
-->'''Kyle''': (''typing'') And in the story of ''Literature/JaneEyre'', we can see parallels to ''{{Franchise/Batman}}''. Because, like Mr. Rochester, he is rich, and sad, and [[Film/BatmanBegins his house burns down.]]
* Kyle snarks about the director's talk about "visual literacy" resulting in photoshop filters by showing off his own image with filters overlaid. When he gets to Line-Drawing, the background music becomes A-Ha's ''Take On Me''.
* Kyle's BreadEggsMilkSquick moment when describing how he grew up in Holland.
-->'''Kyle:''' This is the house where I grew up, these are the people who raised me, this is where I went to school, this is where I hung out on the weekends, this is where I first got drunk and touched a boob, a lot of memories.

[[folder:Mister Lonely]]
* ''Mister Lonely'' is apparently Harmony Korine's worst film... because it's the most ''normal-looking''.
* Also Ven: "''Film/TrashHumpers'' [[AwfulTruth wasn't his worst movie?!]]"; "This sound like fanfic..." (he [[RunningGag says this several times]] and finally quotes from said fanfic, hamming it up for good measure) and "[[Webvideo/TheNostalgiaCritic I analyze it so you don't have to!]]"
* This bit:
-->'''Kyle''': The nuns do work helping the poor, and Herzog gets in awkward, presumably improvised conversations with various people-You're probably wondering how this all ties in to the Michael Jackson storyline, aren't you? (''[[OverlyLongGag Smiles at the camera for an uncomfortably long time]]'')
-->'''Ven''': (''pokes head into frame'') [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail A moose bit my sister once]]. (''Kyle [[{{Corpsing}} corpses]]'')
* The impersonators introduce themselves one after the other in shoulders-up shots, with a background of clouds and the sky. After the tenth one, we get the [[spoiler:"Congratulations!" sequence from the last episode of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'']].
* After seeing [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext the impersonators faces painted on eggs then turning into their real faces]]:
-->'''Kyle''': Nothing I could say could make that stupider. ...well, okay, I could say this. ♪[[Music/TheBeatles We are the eggmen! Goo goo g'joob, goo goo g'joob, goo goo goo!]]♪
* When a nun falls out of an airplane, the theme song from ''Series/TheFlyingNun'' is played.
* The very end where [[spoiler:Kyle dresses up like Music/MichaelJackson]]. Then TheStinger where [[spoiler:Ven dresses up as Kyle.]]
* The part where [[spoiler:the Creator/MarilynMonroe impersonator hangs herself]]. Kyle stares at the screen, aghast and speechless. Then:
-->'''Ven''': (''pokes head into frame'') [[spoiler:♪''[[Music/EltonJohn Goodbye, Norma Jeane / Though I never knew you at all...]]''♪]]
-->'''Kyle''': (during [[spoiler:the singing]]) '''''[[DudeNotFunny WHOA! WHOA!]]'''''
* Kyle's frequent assurances at the start that he will get to ''Film/SpringBreakers'' is oddly hilarious no matter your opinion on the film.
* During Kyle's critiques of the impersonators:
-->'''Abe Lincoln Impersonator''': I'm Abe ''[[PrecisionFStrike fucking]]'' Lincoln.
-->'''Kyle''': Noooo comment.
** And once we get to Little Red Riding Hood:
--->'''Little Red Hiding Hood Impersonator''': (flatly) Hello, I'm Little Red Riding Hood...
--->'''Kyle''': [[{{Beat}} ...]] (incredulous) [[Series/{{Survivor}} Why has she not been kicked off the island?]]
* After the Michael Jackson impersonator meets up with the others, Kyle says that they proceed to "I dunno, [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory battle rap]], or something"...
* The actual fanfic reading:
-->'''Ven:''' Should I read my fanfic?
-->'''Kyle:''' Ummmmmmmm...
-->[Cut to]
-->'''[[LargeHam Ven:]]''' Princess Diana, Roddy [=McDowell=], Elton John and UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan went into a grocery store, taking two carts with them so their kangaroo had a place to ride.

* When discussing the previous subjects of Harmony Korine's movies.
-->'''Kyle:''' Do I get brownie points for not calling them "white trash"?\\
'''Ven:''' ''[behind the camera]'' You literally ''just did''.\\
'''Kyle:''' ...Dammit.

[[folder:Dead Man]]
* Oan and Ven's reaction to ''Film/TheLoneRanger'': a few seconds of despondent silence, followed by Ven muttering [[RunningGag "stupid fucking white man."]]
** Ven interrupts an explanation to shove a cowboy hat onto Kyle. ''"Kyle! Wear a hat!"'' Kyle's stunned expression after he leaves is priceless; it's very clear that he's trying desperately to avoid {{Corpsing}} .
* Oan explains how "meditation on" is a buzzword used by critics to avoid calling something boring. Then uses his own joking example.
--> ''Film/AfterEarth'' is a meditation on [[TakeThat nepotism]].
* After describing the staid, slow plot, Kyle pauses for a moment and then shouts, "YEE-HAW!" as a Western sting plays behind him.
* The use of the phrase "terrifying like an Aristocrats joke".

[[folder:Room in Rome]]
* The RunningGag of stating the whole title anytime some says "room".
* Kyle lampshades how the viewer is likely more interested in [[GirlOnGirlIsHot the scenes of lesbian sex]] than they are about his lectures by shoving a sex scene out of the frame and resuming talking... while the audio from said sex keeps going.
-->'''Kyle''': Oh, I'm sorry; did I interrupt your porn?
* Kyle muses that it might seem unfair of him to accuse the film of being PornWithPlot if it's trying to make an effort to tell two womens' story "[[{{Pun}} buuuuuuuttttttttt...]] (''cut to a shot of [[MaleGaze the womens' butts being accentuated by the camera]]'')"
* Kyle struggles to define why the relationship in the movie doesn't quite feel right to him. First he suggests it might be because neither actress is speaking their native language, then possibly that it might be because both actress are straight (which Ven shoots down, as he doesn't know for certain their orientation).
-->'''Kyle''': So what's wrong with the movie than?
-->'''Ven''': Maybe the dialogue just sucks?
-->'''Kyle''': *snaps* That's it!
* When discussing ''Film/BlueIsTheWarmestColour'', he talks about the graphic sex scenes, and says that while he can't show them, he ''can'' re-enact them. Cue a hand holding up an open pair of scissors, another hand doing the same and then both hands shoving the scissors against each other.
* When the two female character end up having [[ComicSutra some particularly acrobatic oral sex]] (censored by stacking two upright Venus de Milo torsos on top of one another, if that tells you anything), Kyle is aghast: "''That's not a first-date position!''"
* Reacting to "Your skin is like the Russian Steppe."
-->Kyle: I can see tiny Cossacks riding over your pores. This skin tag looks like St. Basil's cathedral. Your stretch marks remind me of the aftermath of the Battle of Stalingrad.
* A LongList of reveals with a ScareChord. Complete with innocuous ones and finishing with Kyle saying "I have a hang nail!"
* "Get out of the chair, fuzzy man. It's ''my'' turn."
* Kyle discusses the overused theme song, noting the strange pronunciation.
--> '''Kyle:''' "It sounds like she's saying Loving Stringers."
** DescriptionCut to [[Series/TheWire Stringer Bell]] delivering a brief ClusterFBomb.

* Kyle's attempt to show how the film is one of a kind in genre gradually falls into an OverlyNarrowSuperlative.
-->Let's try an experiment. Name an African film. (''Disney/TheLionKing'')\\
Okay, one that involves actual human beings. (''{{Film/Casablanca}}'')\\
Okay, now one that's set in Sub-Saharan Africa, like the ''heart'' of Africa. (''Film/OutOfAfrica'', ''Film/TheAfricanQueen'', ''Film/BloodDiamond'')\\
Okay, um, that one too. (''[[Film/ErnestPWorrell Ernest Goes To Africa]]'') ...who the hell suggested that- \\
Um, okay, let's try an African film that's not about a white guy. (''Film/DistrictNine'')\\
A ''human'' non-white guy, an actual black person in Africa. (''Film/ShaftInAfrica'')\\
An ''African'' person in Africa. (''Film/ComingToAmerica'')\\
A person in Africa who's from a real non-fictional African country. (''Film/HotelRwanda'')\\
Okay, now one that's by an African director. (''Film/TheGodsMustBeCrazy'')\\
Alright, now one that's doesn't have any white people. (''{{Film/Tsotsi}}'')\\
... it still has a white director. Okay, I'm talking about an African movie directed by a native African about native Africans in relationship ''to themselves''. (''Disney/TheLionKing'' ??) Nooo...
* ''Disney/TheLionKing'' also [[RunningGag keeps popping up]] despite his efforts.
* His summary of the movie is scored with ''Star Wars'' music. He goes the extra mile and always puts appropriate tracks in the right spot.
* When the Hyena makes an appearance ("I never said this movie had a budget"), so do [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mike and the Bots]]. "PAUL! You is a wirwulf!"
* When listing examples of (largely) benign American nationalism and the image of the quintessential American small town, he manages to slip in [[Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale Night Vale]] and [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Columbia]].

* The title card, which depicts Kyle breaking out cardboard boxes full of his old censor images in preparation for the review.
* Kyle starts the review in a basement, reading ''The Ethical Slut'' and [[Film/TheGreatEscape throwing a ball at the wall repeatedly]]. As he starts talking about the director of ''Shame'', one Creator/SteveMcQueenActor, Ven has to tell him that it's actually a ''different'' Creator/SteveMcQueenDirector, and poor Kyle loses half his script.
-->'''Kyle''': My personal favorite scene is where [Brandon] jumps a motorcycle over three hookers mid-orgasm, and then cries. ...Steve [=McQueen=]... '''''Half'''''. '''''My script'''''.
** Despite this, he stubbornly plays ''Film/TheGreatEscape'' theme while describing [=McQueen=]'s work.
* When showing a brief snippet of the scene where Sissy walks in on Brandon furiously masturbating, Kyle plays the song [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Jackin' it in San Diego"]].
* "They're close, but not [[Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire Targaryens]]."
* When discussing the question of 'Is sex addiction real?', he looks at a scene where the main character watched a cam girl and then went into the bathroom to masturbate.
-->Diagnosis... ADD!
* His subsequent diagnosis for when Brandon can't get it up for a coworker he actually loves (who is black) only to have wild sex with a random white woman a few minutes later.
-->Diagnosis: fear of commitment... or subconscious racism.
* During Sissy's ridiculously long rendition of "New York, New York", Kyle takes an opportunity to rant about how much he hates the song and how terrible New York is.
--> ...so I live in New York now.
* While discussing how you can get addicted to anything, including ''VideoGame/StarCraft'':
-->''There's'' a movie... Creator/MichaelFassbender looks to Creator/CareyMulligan's eyes, and goes "For the love of God, [[YouRequireMoreVespeneGas I just need more Vespene Gas]]."
* Calling it a "Creator/ChristopherNolan film", due to the somber score and dark, moody aesthetic approach to an urban city.
-->'''Batman!Brandon!Kyle''': Gotham. The city screams. I jerked it fifteen times today.
* Commenting on the "saddest threesome ever."
-->'''Droopy!Brandon!Kyle''': I'm having a threesome. Boo hoo. Boo hoo.
* When bringing up the concept of "problem plays", Kyle mentions the TV equivalent: the VerySpecialEpisode. This leads him to getting tripped up by a clip from "[[Series/FamilyMatters Life of the Party]]"[[note]]The episode where Urkel gets drunk and falls off the roof of a building[[/note]]:
-->'''Kyle''': (slightly confused; quietly) Drunk enough to fall off of a building, but sober enough to grab a ledge on the way- ([[{{Beat}} looks up in thought]]) (shakes his head; throws up his hands) I don't review sitcoms...

[[folder:Cloud Atlas]]
* The promo art features versions of Kyle from all time periods, including the far future... [[CallBack where he has evolved into a giant snail]].
* His descriptions of the story arcs:
-->'''Kyle''': (dramatic voice) Not quite ''Film/{{Amistad}}'' <HISS> (WebVideo/{{Phelous}} voice) old British people are wacky! <HISS> (trailer voice) [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture In the future...]] {{yellowface}} <hiss> (from a distance) We watch ''Film/JackieBrown'' after this? <HISS> The really cute gay couple. <HISS> VideoGame/{{Fallout}} [[RecycledINSPACE goes Hawaiian]]!
* Kyle struggles to explain infinite recurrence in more concrete terms than Nietzsche's own prosaic description, while the author photo spins around wildly to the strains of "Also Sprach Zarathustra".
* Creator/TomHanks declares his fondness for playing Dermot Hoggins, because [[TakeThatCritics he got to "throw a critic off a balcony to his horrible crushing death!"]] Hanks is ''roaring with laughter'' the whole time he says this.
-->'''Kyle''': He's the nicest guy in Hollywood. (''starts crying'')
* When Kyle decides that "stalling is over" and it's time to discuss the biggest of the film's UnfortunateImplications.
-->'''Kyle''': ''Cloud Atlas'' has been accused of horribly insensitive, racist portrayals... [[BaitAndSwitch of Scottish people]]. (''clip of the pub fight from the Tim Cavendish arc'') [[ViolentGlaswegian Buck-toothed, whiskey-swilling, soccer-obsessed gingers willing to start a fight at the drop of a]] ha-ha just kidding I am talking about {{yellowface}}.
* With its combination of stultifying autocracy and absurdly pervasive consumerism, Kyle argues that the dystopian future Korea, Nea So Copros, is the inevitable conclusion of the culturally opposite [[UsefulNotes/NorthKorea North]] and [[UsefulNotes/SouthKorea South]] amalgamating into each other again. This is represented by rows of soldiers marching in perfect formation - and a clip from [[{{Music/PSY}} "Gangnam Style"]].
* When Kyle claims that there isn't anything in the film version of the story not done before, he counters the inevitable argument by listing off countless films that used the same concepts. Set to the theme from ''LiveActionTV/QuantumLeap''.
** The segment explaining {{yellowface}} is set to [[Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys "Moon River".]]
* [[spoiler:The entire ending sequence, featuring Ven as David Mitchell in 2002, Lindsay, Elisa and Paw as Manhattan socialites in 1916, Ven ''again'' as Cassius Longinus in ancient Rome (with Kyle as some random kook bearing a stone tablet), and the whole gang as primitive cave-dwellers in prehistoric Lascaux.]]

[[folder:The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover]]
* Kyle receiving meals from the offscreen waiter and talking with his mouth full throughout the review, deliberately reducing insightful commentary to incoherent mumbling.
* Kyle's summation of Peter Greenaway and his body of work, some of which[[note]]''Prospero's Books'', ''Nightwatching''[[/note]] has been covered on the show.
-->"He is one of the most unique directors working today. He is ''delightfully'' idiosyncratic, ''remarkably'' pretentious, and I just... love him to bits. [[SophisticatedAsHell Ah call him Petey Greens."]]
* The extended "Basically, it's ''Film/TheRoom''" montage.
* Kyle compares one of Creator/HelenMirren's costumes to that of [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie Jeannie]].
* Demonstrating how the costumes in the film often change colour to match the set dressing, Kyle shows a scene in which Georgina's dress goes from white to red as she walks from the bathroom to the hall - and splices in the [[MemeticMutation Wololo]] of a converting priest from ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires.''
* The quote from ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'' that tops its page on this wiki is played and captioned with "Describes 70% of modern Hollywood films in a single sentence".

* Anytime Kyle says "BUUUUUUUUUUUTTS!". ("There's a ''motif'' here.")
--> '''Kyle:''' ''[Watching guys pour their drinks on a woman's very large breasts in slow-mo]'' Not every day you have to motion-track a nipple. ''[Ashamed]'' ...Unless you're me. This is the life I have chosen.

--> '''Alien:''' Bikinis and big booty, y'all, that's what life is about!
--> '''Crowd:''' *cheers*
--> '''Kyle:''' [[PunctuatedForEmphasis All! Hail! BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUTTS!]]
* Kyle's summation of television programs for pre-teens and teenagers, "[[Series/ThatsSoRaven That's so]] [[Series/ICarly i]][[Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Wizards]] [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody Sweet Life of]] [[Series/PrettyLittleLiars Pretty]] [[Film/HighSchoolMusical Musical]] [[Series/PrettyLittleLiars Liars]][[{{Beat}} ...]] [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb and Ferb]]".
* One scene is so perfectly, deliciously absurd (Alien playing a soulful Music/BritneySpears piano ballad while the girls jump up and down on the bed, threaten people with machine guns and rob them blind, with Alien himself smashing a guy's face into a wedding cake) that it's relegated to a small corner of the screen and left playing with the caption, "Best Scene Happy Place Corner".
* [[CallBack "So they faked it AND they made it?]] [[Film/TrashHumpers That's not how it works!"]]
* "Hare Skrillex, Hare Skrillex."
* Kyle's distress when the film uses "Lights" by Ellie Goulding in the end credits, as he likes the song.

[[folder:Tiny Furniture]]
* Kyle's reviewing the movie largely because it's in Creator/TheCriterionCollection. While he becomes jealous of how Creator/LenaDunaham's ''first film'' joined its acclaimed ranks, he's quick to point out that among those esteemed films are ''Film/TheBlob1958'', ''{{Film/Armageddon}}'', and ''{{Film/Gojira}}''.
* Halfway through the review, Kyle is pestered by Ven as "the Nietzschean Cowboy" (an Internet persona from the film) and tells him to leave. By the end, though, he decides to embrace it and tells him "I am the Nietzschean Cowboy" [[{{Film/Spartacus}} as do a ton of other fellow Internet reviewers]]. Special mentions to [[WebVideo/SomeJerkWithACamera Tony Goldmark]] saying: "I'm Mal- I mean, I'm Spartac- I mean, I'm the Nietzschean Cowboy!" and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] pronouncing it as "the Neeshen Cowhow".
** The Nietzschean Cowboy mustache also tends to act oddly, whether by falling off while Ven is talking, or fluttering when Kyle breathes.
* TheStinger featuring [[spoiler:[[Literature/HarryPotter Albus Mumblecore]].]]
* When Aura asks a toddler on what she should wear for her date and gets a response back:
-->'''Kyle:''' *as Aura* Thanks emotional peer!
* On the subject of the recent crop of [[ManChild adult children]] in TheNewTens, he has a lot to say about this one clip:
--> '''Aura''': (Arguing with her mother) [[{{Wangst}} I am a young, young person who is trying VERY HARD!]]
--> '''Kyle''': (VO) [[TakeThat WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!!]]
** And later, when he plays the same clip.
--> "Well you know what they say: 23 is [[ManChild the new 5]]."

[[folder:Romeo + Juliet]]
* Kyle's utter disbelief over the decision to give the guns brand names of swords, especially since guns existed during Shakespeare's time.
-->'''Kyle''': (''texting on his phone'') Yeah, just give me a minute to place my wax seal on this letter so my courtier can send it.

* Kyle keeps [[DamnedByFaintPraise diminishing his compliment for the film]].
-->'''Kyle''': It's not a terrible retelling of the story. ...well, it hits the beats. ...well, you can understand the words. ...actually this makes no sense whatsoever.
* The film's depiction of the Capulets and Montagues are dubbed "El Mariachi versus the Burger King Kids Club."
* "For never was there a tale of more ''whoooaa'' than this of Juliet and her Romeo. ...I am so much better than that final line-"
* TheStinger with "[[Film/SpringBreakers Springbreak forevermore]]" sung in a faux-Shakespearian accent.

[[folder:Much Ado About Nothing]]
* Kyle expresses his confusion that this was filmed during Creator/JossWhedon's sabbatical during ''The Avengers''. Followed by the "Shakespeare in the park?" scene.
-->'''Kyle''': We are basically watching his vacation footage. (''As Joss'') ''Look at how awesome my house is.''
** That's even funnier if you've heard Much Ado's directors commentary, as at least three points, Joss gushes about how much he loves his house.
* Kyle attempts his "Everyone quotes Shakespeare" RunningGag again, only to find he doesn't have a third clip quoting ''Much Ado'' this time. He gets around it by showing a clip from ''Series/ArrestedDevelopment'' staging "Much Ado", even if no quotes from the play are said.
* Apparently Joss owns a "Whedon Signal" with which he can summon his actor friends.
* Kyle's lengthy snark about Whedon's ProductionPosse -- one mostly famous for mastering Whedon's [[BuffySpeak natural, disjointed voice]] -- doing the extremely precise, cadenced language of Shakespeare.
--> ''"Alexis Denisof barks his lines like a cartoon version of Creator/ClarkGable, Creator/ReedDiamond has all the charm of a guy about to sell you an extended warranty, Creator/SeanMaher has about the same, only he's selling you cocaine instead, Jillian Morgese was apparently hired because she was an extra in ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', and it shows... [cut to Spencer Treat Clark as Borachio] [[OlderThanTheyLook ...who the hell let this eighth-grader on set?]] And Fran Kranz has a voice less suited for iambic pentameter and more suited for bong jokes."''
* Noting all the drinking the characters do, Kyle comes up with a possible theory for the IdiotPlot of the play: they're all drunk!
-->'''Kyle!Don Pedro''': So I gonna pwetend to be you and hwit on yer girlfriend and then she'll want your D and then- *hiccups* wedding! Yaaaayyyyy!
* Kyle tries in vain to analyze the scene on the poster of [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment Claudio in a pool wearing a snorkel with a full martini]].
* When assessing Creator/ClarkGregg's performance.
-->'''Clark Gregg as Leonato''': Hath no man's dagger here a point for me?
-->'''Kyle''': Eh, I don't know. What do you think, more accomplished Shakespearean actor Creator/TomHiddleston? (''Cue clip of [[Film/TheAvengers2012 Loki stabbing Coulson with his spear]].'') *wincing* ...it's bit harsh!
* He defines BuffySpeak... in Buffy Speak.

* The black extra with "JUDGING YOU" pasted over her head as Claudio delivers the often-cut "I'd hold my mind were she an Ethiope" line.
* TheStinger: [[spoiler: "Grr. Argh."]]

[[folder:Richard III]]
* Kyle responds to the full bore [[PuttingOnTheReich Nazi regalia]] by singing "[[GodwinsLaw Godwin]], Godwin, God-''win''" to a conga beat.
* Kyle squeeing over Creator/IanMcKellen, topped off by his statement at the end:
--> '''Kyle''' (''deadpan''): [[ARareSentence And I've got a crush on a child-killing Nazi]]. This month has gotten weird.
* "[[TankGoodness TANKS]]!!! TANKS!!! SHAKESPEARE WITH TANKS!!! ''I LOVE THIS!!!"''
* Creator/RobertDowneyJr (as Rivers) is introduced as "[[Film/IronMan that dude with the robot suit who makes all the money]]".
** Later, when he's murdered by Richard, Kyle quips the act makes Richard go "full supervillain".
** And he gets stabbed "right in the Arc reactor!" (Actually it's a bit too low for that, [[DontExplainTheJoke but...]])
* "Why yes, [[BrutalHonesty I am going to bang your daughter]]. Drink?"
* When the Duchess of York calls out Richard in public for his atrocities.
-->'''Kyle!Richard''': Geez, ma! Can't I just kill like eight or nine people in my bloody road to absolute power without you on my case? Gaah!
* After noting the film's references to other classic villains.
-->'''Kyle''': So Richard isn't just a Nazi, he's also [[Film/WhiteHeat a gangster]] and a [[Franchise/StarWars cyborg space-wizard]].
* [[https://twitter.com/tonygoldmark/status/463962679841783808 Richard the Third Reich]]: Kyle wishes he thought of it.

[[folder:The Tempest]]

* "But I'm including this movie for a reason. Tying back to my larger theme: The gradient of director/text relationships. [Scene from Romeo and Juliet] Selling the text. [Scene from Much Ado About Nothing] Delivering the text. [Scene from Richard the III] Interpreting the text. [Scene from The Tempest] Reworking the text. [Scene from this movie of two lead performers humping, censored with a black box labeled "Nekkid"] And now, exploiting the text."
* Kyle (unsuccessfully) trying to resist the urge [[ObligatoryJoke to mock the porn stars' acting abilities]].
-->'''Kyle:''' I mean, I understand ''why'' they cut the verse. They're not selling this movie on the strength of their performers' elocution. I mean, if they ''were'' then we'd just get a bunch of porn stars acti--''(totally breaks down and starts laughing his ass off, but regains his composure)'' Sorry, sorry... Tough industry. It's a tough industry for them, they put up with a lot of shit already, so... Yeah. ''(clears his throat...then bursts out laughing again)''
** His summation of the lead performer's acting career.
-->'''Kyle:''' The only two somewhat decent actors are the "starriest" porn stars. Evan Stone, AKA "Sir Laurence Porn-livier", has over a thousand credits to his name.

''(plays a dramatic clip from'' Pirates XXX, ''where we see Evan Stone and his co-stars exchanging badly written jokes before facing an army of badly rendered CGI skeletons)''\\

[[folder:10 Things I Hate About You]]
* Kyle trying to explain how this movie is based on ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew'', including the title.
* Mocking the anti-feminist nature of the original Taming of the Shrew, as the ultimate victory over Katarina's willful nature is celebrated by the tossing of hats. Fedoras, to be precise ([[DontExplainTheJoke which have recently become associated with pick-up artists, Men's Rights Advocates and the like]]).
** In addition, when Kyle refers to the original version as 'Red Pill-ish', the video cuts to two goony-looking fellows in trilbys bobbling their heads.
* Kyle continues his theme of how works based on Shakespeare's plays use the text of the play they are based on. This work presents the text by [[spoiler:ignoring]] it.

* "Shakespeare ''wrote'' Shakespeare! [...] On a related note; vaccines do not cause autism ([[CaptionHumor Pseudoscience]]), Al-Qaeda did cause 9/11 (Outside Job), Americans walked on the Moon (Not A Soundstage), and the Queen of England is not a lizard-person. (Real, Corgi Loving Human)"
* Kyle's rage about the movie showing Christopher Marlowe, Thomas Dekker and Thomas Nash in utter awe at Shakespeare's ability to write an entire play in iambic pentameter.
--> "Alright, I need to explain how stupid this scene is: Music/JayZ, [[Music/SnoopDogg Snoop Lion]] and [[Music/WuTangClan the RZA]] all walk into a bar. Jay Z says 'Hey, you guys hear about this new kid, Music/KanyeWest?' And the other two go, 'Yeah, I've heard the name.' And then he goes 'Have you heard he raps ''rhyming verse to a beat?''' And the other two go [[BigWhat WHAAAAA-]]"
* Calling out Anti-Stratfordians by doing the same WildMassGuessing process of theirs with Creator/RolandEmmerich, trying to "discover" the director through the ideas and themes in ''Film/IndependenceDay''. He concludes that the "real" Roland Emmerich is a Jewish-American fighter pilot who dabbled in politics and electronics and never left the country (and is possibly a little homophobic). [[note]] [[DontExplainTheJoke Emmerich is German, vocally liberal, openly gay, and definitely not Jewish. And he has never served in the military.]][[/note]]
--> ''In conclusion, I demand that this Jewish-American, tech-savvy Air Force General come forward with his two kids and his stripper wife and his dog and his [=MacBook=] Pro and tell us why Roland Emmerich’s name is on his work!''
* Sticking "[[WesternAnimation/SouthPark THIS IS WHAT ANTI-STRATFORDIANS ACTUALLY BELIEVE]]" under the scene where De Vere finds out he had sex with his illegitimate mother, who just happens to be Queen Elizabeth I. Not only that, but the entire scene is put to the score of "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mML2fPec7xU Spanish Flea]]".

* The numerous instances of BuffySpeak, including "poors can't art good" or "how can falcon if not posh?!"

* Kyle ''screams'' after seeing the film have Christopher Marlowe discover the conspiracy through viewing ''Hamlet'', even though the real Marlowe '''died before it was ever ''staged'''''.

-->'''Masked Slasher:''' Gah, that was an awesome shot, Jerk! Why, you've got to be [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative the greatest white male Jewish overweight long-haired bespectacled theme park reviewer over thirty the]] world's ever known!
** SJWAC's BreathlessNonSequitur when first introduced:
---> '''Some Jerk With a Camera''': And that's why I think Creator/WaltDisney should have been played by Creator/SamuelLJackson.
** Kyle breaks from Belle's above-it-all attitude and starts a fight as soon as someone argues that the original story should be attributed to Beaumont instead of Villeneuve. He loses.
* SJWAC calling Kyle out for saying 'orphic' in Disney Land. [[HypocriticalHumor "You watch your fucking mouth]], we are in [[ClusterFBomb FUCKING DISNEYLAND MOTHERFUCKER!"]]
* When Ven wants to sing, Kyle saying that he refuses to write a subplot with someone who wants to sing but can't, as that's the only joke Doug ever does with him.
* He tries to impress Jerk [[WebVideo/ThePhilosofan and]] [[WebVideo/RBGProductions his]] [[WebVideo/WhatWeHadToWatch backup]] [[WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern singers]] with a shot from a Cocteau film of a man jumping out of the water.
-->'''Spazz''': Kyle, it's water. [[EruditeStoner How high are your brows?]]
* [[AC:The Criterion Collection presents:]] ''Women Be Shoppin'.''
* Kyle going on about the magnificent humanity evident in this version of the Beast...whilst Jerk notices he looks like a cat [[WebOriginal/LOLCats and takes the obvious tack]], even bringing out ''a laser pointer'' after Kyle's monologue.
** In keeping with SJWAC's fondness for on-the-nose backgrounds, this bit takes place in front of the [[WesternAnimation/MonstersInc Mike & Sulley to the Rescue!]] ride. Kitty!
* SJWAC pointing out how silly it is for the film itself to tell you directly that you need to think like a child in order to watch it properly.

[[folder:Beauty and the Beast (Part 2)]]
* They talk about how influential [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast both]] [[Film/BeautyAndTheBeast1946 versions]] were. And how if you think about it's an inherently messed up story about a woman choosing between two monstrous men ([[BeautyIsBad Gaston]] and [[TrueBeautyIsOnTheInside the Beast]]), only to realize if ''Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast'' never existed, ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' probably would have never happened. Cue SJWAC's HeroicBSOD.
** And Kyle's comment of "Oh crap he figured it out."
** This parody of the famous scene.
-->'''Jerk''': How old is this tale?\\
'''Kyle''': Old as time.\\
'''Jerk''': How long has it been as old as time?\\
'''Kyle''': [[FlatWhat What?]]
** SJWAC freaking out when he sees the Beast('s jewellery) sparkling.
** Also his claim that "Every time I say that word and don't follow it up with [[Franchise/TheTwilightZone 'Zone']], somewhere a ''real'' vampire dies of cardiac arrest!"
** Kyle spends a lengthy time explaining how the BeastAndBeauty trope is OlderThanDirt to dispel any conceived notion Jerk might have about how ''Twilight'' directly copied Cocteau's film. Then Jerk points out how Bella sounds similar to Belle. Realizing the [[ShoutOut implication]], both proceed to rush off-screen to throw up.
* Kyle [[SuddenlyShouting subtly]] implying that Andre Breton's hatred of Cocteau was rooted in the former's homophobia.
** Kyle pointing out that Breton called Cocteau "the most hateful being of our time" while ''Hitler'' was still alive.
* SJWAC calls Kyle out on why he likes Cocteau's version better than the Disney version ([[spoiler: "CAUSE IT'S FRENCH!"]]), to the tune of "Be Our Guest."
** Ven suddenly bursts into the song, demands Kyle and SJWAC give him a verse, only for them to point out they just ''did'', after which Ven disappears again.
** This verse:
-->'''Jerk''': You prefer\\
Talking frogs\\

Or a teapot with the voice of Creator/JudiDench!\\
'''Kyle''': That’s Creator/AngelaLansbury!\\
'''Jerk''': But that don’t rhyme very \\

* The [[http://thefump.com/fump.php?id=1841 alternate lyrics]] to the song include a bridge about the sordid history of Disneyland Paris...and a verse about a murderous teapot uprising.
* The section on the French surrealism movement includes a ten-second countdown to [[spoiler:the EyeScream scene from ''Film/UnChienAndalou,'']] with "THING YOU CAN'T UNSEE APPROACHING IN 10, 9, 8..." plastered across the screen in red.
-->'''Kyle''': Sure, a man with a mouth on his hand is weird, but people a few theaters over could see a man [[spoiler:'''''[[SuddenlyShouting SLICING A WOMAN'S EYEBALL IN HALF]]''''']].

[[folder:Beauty and the Beast (Part 3)]]
* Part 3's PreviouslyOn goes for the obvious [[Series/TheWestWing West Wing]] joke in regards to the Disney version.
* During Kyle's walk through Disneyland, Andrew Dickman (title card artist for The Nostalgia Chick) punches out Kyle for saying "Cocteau" in front of his kids. "Cocks don't have toes!"
* The stinger.
-->'''SJWAC:''' Stay tuned next week when we compare Disney's version of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'' to [[Film/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Charles Laughton's]]!
-->''One Week Later (while "A Guy Like You" plays)''
-->'''Kyle''' (wearing a smug smirk)''':''' Laughton wins.
-->'''SJWAC''' (frowning and looking down)''':''' I know.
* Kyle is forced to concede FridgeLogic to Some Jerk, when the latter points out how Belle's sisters want Avenant to steal treasure from the Beast's vault, which they already know is worthless to anyone but Belle. He does so with freeze-frames of Avenant looking confused that match perfectly with Kyle's loss for words.
* SJWAC sees a scene he actually does like, where one of Belle's wicked stepsisters gets her wish for a pet monkey by [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor looking into an enchanted mirror and seeing herself as a monkey]]. Kyle is pleased at this... until any attempt to wring further compliments for the film by SJWAC end up with him bringing up the monkey at every opportunity and nothing else.
* When Kyle decides [[spoiler:to kill Mickey Mouse.]]
-->'''SJWAC''': Ven! Kyle has gone Oswald!
-->'''Ven''': WesternAnimation/OswaldTheLuckyRabbit or [[AxCrazy Lee Harvey Oswald?]]
-->'''SJWAC''': ... ''both''.
* Among a list of "deeply personal" art films made by the creators for the sole purpose of self-expression: ''Film/TheRoom''.
* SJWAC's reaction to the Cocteau film's ending.
--> '''SJWAC''': Hey! You can't just leave without an explanation! I demand answers! (''Belle and Avenant fly into the sky'') Wha- Don't get raptured now! I refuse to be [[Literature/LeftBehind left behind]] by [[Film/LeftBehind2000 Kirk Cameron]] or [[Film/LeftBehind2014 Nicolas Cage]]! [[Music/TheRollingStones Hey!! You!! Get off of that cloud!!]] [[Film/TheProducers I am the audience, you are the movie, I OUTRANK YOU!!]] (''Belle and Avenant disappear into the distance'') EXPLAIN YOURSELF!! [[SkywardScream EXPLAAAAAAAAAAAAAI-]]
* After finally reaching a happy agreement at the end, the two of them attempt to re-enact the ending of Cocteau's film... only to remember that they can't fly.
* The BrickJoke that happens when SJWAC brings up ''Twilight'':
--> '''Vampire:''' CARDIAC ARREST! (''drops dead'')
* In the final song, the list of ''Beauty and the Beast'' adaptations includes "Films with KevinJames."

* Kyle's book for the opening? ''WesternAnimation/BluesClues''
* Kyle's [[HurricaneOfPuns Hurricane of Blue Puns]]".
-->'''Kyle''': So. BLLLUUUE. This is the bluest blue that ever blued. It is the Music/BlueManGroup covered in blueberry pie under the light of a blue moon. It is the bluegrass musician eating blue cheese while using Bluetooth. It is Little Boy Blue in ''Film/BlueVelvet'' and [[Music/ElvisPresley Blue Suede Shoes]]. It's a freaky interracial orgy with Franchise/TheSmurfs and [[{{Film/Avatar}} the Na'vi]]. It's a [[Music/NewOrder Blue Monday]] with [[Music/ElectricLightOrchestra Mr. Blue Sky shining on me]] [[Music/BobDylan as I'm tangled up in blue]]. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CB4 It's blue y'all, it's blue y'all, it's bliggity-blue, it's blue y'all]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_(Da_Ba_Dee) it's blue da boo dee da boo die, da boo dee da boo die, da boo dee da boo die, daboodeedaboodie-]] [''explodes''] [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment I just... blue myself.]]
* When he shows a canvas painted with naked blue bodies, you hear a spray can and the image is enhanced with [[ComicBook/XMen Mystique was here.]]
* While discussing the vagueness of ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'':
-->'''Kyle''': By the way, this is my Cecil Palmer cosplay. (pause) What? Prove it can't be!

[[folder:Gerry REDUX]]
* "[[Music/SimonAndGarfunkel Hello boredom my old friend.]]"
* When Gus Van Sant talks about how he first discovered [[spoiler:''VideoGame/TombRaider'' when his secretary told him he could download the first level and that he was amazed at the discovery that there are many different kinds of video games]], Kyle shouts "'''CASUAL!!!'''"
** Kyle is also understandably flummoxed by [[spoiler:a sudden reference to the original ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires'' (complete with [[MemeticMutation the WOLOLOLOLOL sound effect]] a moment later)]].
* The ending has Kyle "playing" Gerry like a video game (with Xbox 360 controller in hand), but gets fed up and asks if there's any cheat codes.
* The return of the "singing over footage of rhythmic walking" gag from the last ''Gerry'' review. Especially when he finds himself singing "500 Miles" again... but this time, he stops himself.

[[folder: This is Not a Film]]
* Oancitizen hypes up ''This is Not a Film'', even calling the most genius thing ever. All that build up leads up to a clip of [[spoiler: [[MundaneMadeAwesome a guy slowly walking over to sit down and eating food.]]]]
* Oancitizen interrupts his discussion about the director's situation to squee about the director's pet iguana.
-->'''Oancitizen:''' This film is a revelation! I had no idea how much I want an iguana until I saw this movie. [Iguana voice] Love. ''Looove.''\\
'''Panahi:''' [In Persian, with English subtitles] Your nails are too sharp!\\
'''Oancitizen:''' [iguana voice] I use my claws to show my ''looove.'' [Normal] It's like a cat crossed with a dragon!
* "[[MundaneMadeAwesome Yeah! I'm hanging out in my own living room with a camera running!]] [[ItMakesSenseInContext FUCK THE REVOLUTIONARY POLICE!"]]
* Bit of a meta-joke, when Kyle discusses the Iranian New Wave, the song he chooses to play in the background is New Wave band A Flock of Seagulls' "[[StealthPun I Ran]] (So Far Away)."
* Kyle's summary of Panahi's predicament, and Iran's government.
-->''In 2009, during the failed Green Revolution, he started work on a movie whose subject matter was the fraudulent reelection of noted grandstanding [[SoundEffectBleep *BLEEP*]]head Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the riots that followed. He basically intended to suggest that the Iranian government might not be the most transparent regime in the world. The Iranian government, [[SarcasmMode in a generous effort to prove him wrong]], [[NotHelpingYourCase arrested him for crimes against the state]].''

[[folder:F for Fake and the Death of the Author]]
* Kyle desperately wants this to be Creator/OrsonWelles's last film, in favor of his role as Unicron in [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie a certain glorified toy commercial]].
* [[ItMakesSenseInContext FOOD FOR THE FOOD GOD!]]
* "This is Welles's girlfriend. And hoo boy, does he want you to know that this is his girlfriend."
-->''[over a shot of Oja Kodar running in the breeze wearing a transparent blue robe] Weeeee're doooooiiiing iiiit!''
* Lots of moments during the whole "John Green" section, including:
** "That man was the lead in ''Film/{{Antichrist}}''!"[[note]]Creator/WillemDafoe, who plays Peter van Houten in ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars'' and He in ''Antichrist''.[[/note]]
** The recreation of what it would be like if John Green turned out to be a thousand hamsters in a man suit.
** "I suddenly realise the real John Green might stumble upon all this and be very creeped out by it. Then again, who cares what he thinks, [[MemeticMutation he's the Zodiac Killer.]]"

[[folder:West Side Story and Romeo and Juliet]]
* "Hey, remember that time one of our presidents was shot in the head by a Shakespearian actor? ''Awkward!''"
* "Shakespeare and musicals: America's two favourite forms of theatre. Suck it, improv."
* He follows a clip of an old trailer claiming "Unlike other classics, ''Film/WestSideStory'' grows younger!" with a montage of all the dated slang.
-->Whoot homie.
* ''[over a scene with Tony and Riff]'' "See you on the set of ''Series/TwinPeaks'' in thirty years! ...Yeah, I know. It blew my mind too." [[labelnote: Explanation]]The actors went on to play Ben Horne and Dr. Jacoby.[[/labelnote]]
** And slightly later: "Even a well meaning adult trying to bring the two sides together... is that [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Gomez Adams]]?!"
-->''(John Astin [[RunningGag snaps his fingers as well]])''\\
'''Kyle:''' ''(Bemused)'' Holy crap.
* When summing up at the end, he gets distracted by just how much Creator/NatalieWood [[PassFail cannot pass for Puerto Rican]].

[[folder:Omkara and the Indian Shakespeare]]
* His [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent awful pronunciation]] of ''Bollywood/DilwaleDulhaniaLeJayenge''.
--> ({{Beat}}) "I don't speak Hindi."
* The "[[GagSub translation]]" of Omkara's theme song.
--> ''Dham dham dharam dharaiya re'' (''[[{{Film/Shaft}} Who's the Indian private goon]]'')
-->''Sab se bade ladaiya re'' (''[[{{Film/Shaft}} who makes his Desdemona swoon?]]'')
-->''Hey'' (''[[{{Film/Shaft}} ya damn right]]'')
* His portrayal of [[EvilColonialist Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay]].
--> '''Macaulay (actual quote):''' I have never found one among them who could deny that a single shelf of a good European library was worth the whole native literature of India.
--> '''Kyle!Distant Voice:''' What about the ''{{Literature/Ramayana}}''?
--> '''Kyle!Macaulay:''' No thank you, I already had lunch.

[[folder:Throne of Blood and Macbeth]]
* "''Film/ThroneOfBlood'' is one of Kurosawa's many samurai-centric films (''jidaigeki''), and one of the many that star Creator/ToshiroMifune. Or, as he's known to his fans, [[DeathGlare 'CRAZY EYES']]! Or... maybe it's just me who calls him that."
* His making an increasingly big deal that all the arrows fired at Toshiro Mifune in the climax were real, until he sheepishly says "Okay, probably not ''that'' one" for the shot that kills him.
* The [[MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels bizarre]] attempts by Google Translate to make the title English.
** There's actually a joke within a joke there. While the [[CompletelyDifferentTitle translated English title]] is "Throne of Blood", the film itself is actually named "Spider Web Castle". It's actually right this time.
* Kyle starts explaining the film's need to reinterpret the three witches so that they fit within the setting, as the characters' allusions to Christian doctrine and classical mythology wouldn't have been understood by Japanese filmmakers and audiences at the time. Then someone whispers to him from behind the camera. His response is "...The hell's an [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]?"

[[folder:An Italian (?) Titus Andronicus]]
* To conclude his summary of the play's violent over-the-top events: "The Aristocrats!"
* He discusses at length the decision to set ''Titus'' in an AnachronismStew with the one common element being Roman origin. From the classical togas and Colosseum to the fascist-architecture government building to the Popemobile to several Fellini [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]] to Creator/AnthonyHopkins doing the pie scene while dressed as noted Italian-born chef Ettore Boiardi ([[spoiler:Chef Boyardee]]).
* After bringing up how many Shakespeare scholars suspect he didn't actually write this play due to how much worse it is than his usual work, Kyle says he hopes it really was the Bard, just because that would mean he invented YourMom.
* Kyle ends up talking on the video installations from Taymor's stage version that made the transition to the film... but pauses with a tide of "[[FlatWhat What.]]"s at the piece that shows the head of one of Titus's sons on a sacrificial lamb, putting it side-by-side with the ''VideoGame/{{Seinfeld}}'' scene where Kramer's head is on a turkey.
* Kyle shows how bizarre one plot point is in context by comparing it to UsefulNotes/BarackObama marrying the head of ISIS to spite the Republicans for opposing his policies.

[[folder:Coriolanus: Universal Soldier]]
* Noting the copious amounts of HoYay and FoeYay between Caius and Tullus, Kyle spends the entirety of one scene, where the two men hug and speak ''very'' closely to each other's faces, chanting, "Kiss... kiss... kiss... kiss..." sounding more and more annoyed as time goes on and the two still don't kiss.
** A minute later: "Of all the movies we're gonna talk about, this one is easily the [[PlayedStraight straightest]]." ''[cut to the aforementioned HoYay scene]'' "Oh, you ''know'' what I mean!"
* Kyle's reaction to Coriolanus' big TheReasonYouSuckSpeech.
-->'''Kyle''': In politics, we call that a "gaffe."

[[folder:The Klingon Hamlet Part 1]]
* The opening consists of Kyle staring at the book before shouting [[BigWhat "What?"]]
* Kyle talking about how difficult it is for a non-Trekkie trying to learn Klingon due to the difference in sentence structuring and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking amount of phlegm one needs in order to say a complete sentence.]]
** Which is followed up by Kyle trying to speak a passage from Hamlet in Klingon before keeling over.
* When showing a montage of the many times Star Trek has referenced Shakespeare, it ends on Picard's over-the-top "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day" speech.
-->'''Kyle''': There's gotta be a better clip I could use.
* When going over the changes made to the Klingon version, he mentions at the very end that there's no Klingon translation of one of Hamlet's most famous of lines, "To be..."
-->'''Kyle''': We have a problem here.
* His description of Klingons as "turtle-browed edgelords from Planet Death Metal."
* Kyle's demonstration of other Shakespeare plays in {{Con Lang}}s. The highlights are ''Romeo and Juliet'' in [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Newspeak]] ("Sexcrime. Doubleplusungood."), and ''King Lear'' in [[Literature/HarryPotter Parseltongue]], where Kyle just hisses at the camera.

[[folder:The Klingon Hamlet Part 2]]
* After spending a video and a half talking about the changes made to the Klingon version and all the meanings in the translations, Kyle comes to a conclusion; there are no native Klingon speakers, as Klingon don't exist. He then holds up his microphone and repeats himself.
* He suspects that Music/IggyAzalea's appropriation of Klingon culture may have already happened. Cue a viral video of her incomprehensible rapping accompanied by Klingon subtitles.
* When talking about the different ways people say "To be or not to be" in other languages, he discusses the different translations in Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. Right before he starts talking about Chinese, this appears.
* Near the end, Kyle showcases one last Star Trek clip of Picard praising Hamlet and its meaning, leading to quite the BrickJoke.
-->'''Kyle''': ''There's'' the clip I should've used.
* After mentioning how [[ProudWarriorRace Klingons love honor]], he imagines the Klingon version of ''Theatre/HenryIV'', where Falstaff makes his "honor is just air" speech and promptly gets impaled by a bat'leth.

[[folder:The History of King Simba I]]
* The attempts by WebVideo/SomeJerkWithACamera to turn the review into a crossover, singing ''Disney/TheLionKing'' song parodies relating to Shakespeare's works.
* Explaining why he isn't comparing ''The Lion King'' to ''Hamlet'' largely revolves around how the vast majority of the cast lives, but he is forced to concede that Simba nearly did send Timon and Pumbaa to their deaths [[WeNeedADistraction by using them as bait]].
-->''"Tell him his commandment is fulfilled, that Timoncrantz and Pumbaastern are dead."''
* Upon noting how Disney's animators jokingly called the film "[[Disney/{{Bambi}} Bamb]]-let" during production, Kyle plays Mufasa's death scene and Bambi calling for his mother simultaneously. Cut to audio of him [[TearJerker weeping "Why did I just play those back to back!?"]]
* Comparing ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' to ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'', because they're both about depressed blond women who have supportive brunette sisters.
-->'''Anna!Claire''': ♪Do you wanna see a gas giant? We won't get pummeled by a gas giant.♪
-->'''Elsa!Justine''': The Earth is evil. We don't need to grieve for it.
-->'''Anna!Claire''': ♪Okay, bye...♪
* Morgan Funder/[[WebVideo/TheIdiotsLantern The Wire]] is credited as "Face On Screen for 20 Frames". Which she is, at the very end.

[[folder:Mr. Nobody]]
* He starts the review pretending to read a non-existing book, as "''MrNobody'' is a bit about nothing."
* The RunningGag noting every possible element that was ripped off.
* After showing the possible realities, Kyle goes into Creator/JaredLeto's other roles, including "[[Film/SuicideSquad2016 Emo Joker]]".
* Kyle discusses the concept of ''dasein'' using an extended metaphor. Built around ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''.
** Possibly GeniusBonus as ''dasein'', or rather ''das ein'', can be translated into ''The One'', ergo ''[[Characters/SkyrimMainCharacters The One They Fear]]''.
** Not likely though as ''dasein'' is a perfectly valid German word meaning "to be there" ('da' -> 'there' and 'sein' -> 'to be'). Also word beginning "s" is pronounced "z" in German, which helpful when you need to interpret compound words... also nobody ever puts the "the" (der, die, das) in a compound word because it changes with grammatical [[http://data.whicdn.com/images/25757788/large.jpg gender and case]] (den, dem, des...).
* After he discusses how [[spoiler: time starts going backwards in the ending with the movie]], clips of ''Series/RedDwarf'' start playing - in which Kyle realises:
-->'''Kyle:''' "Oh my god... ''Red Dwarf''! ... [[spoiler: He got his science from a [[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonIIIBackwards RED DWARF EPISODE]]]]!
* Kyle renaming the review [[Main/LongTitle "Mr Nobody is a Bad Movie and Please Stop Trying to Convince Me Otherwise"]].

[[folder:Immortal Ad Vitam]]
* Any attempt to discuss the RandomEventsPlot, complete with "[[ARareSentence The reason Horus takes over Nikopol's body to use Jill's uterus to sire his bird baby... I still can't believe I'm saying that out loud.]]"
* The Good\bad practical\CGI is stumped at [[Series/TheIncredibleHulk Lou Ferrigno's Hulk]].
* The UncannyValley is exemplified by [[Film/{{Twilight}} Renesmee Cullen]].
* "Sure, just let me open my chest up and show you my ribcage".

[[folder:Little Otik and the Magic of Stop Motion]]
* In a CallBack to his earlier review of ''Alice'', another Švankmajer film, he mentions he "found it quite charming".
-->''(Wordless eight-second clip of Oan screaming his head off)''\\
'''Kyle:''' ''(Wistfully)'' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint I was so THIN back then]].
* While trying to outline the plot of the movie, based on the 19th-century Czech fairy tale "Otesánek" (an unfulfilled, childless man begins to raise and care for a murderous plant sustained by human blood), Kyle realizes that the story already ''has'' [[Film/LittleShopOfHorrors a modern-day parallel]].
* The episode ends with [[WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy the jingle for LOG!]] playing over the credits.

[[folder:William Shakespeare's Star Wars and the Power of Iambic Pentameter]]
* The end of the video has Kyle deciding to do [[spoiler:Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial]] in the same style as the books.
-->'''Kyle:''' Actually, this looks kinda fun... it can't be that hard, can it? [[[TheUnSmile grins]]]\\
''Three ill-advised hours later''\\
'''Kyle:''' (writing in a book with a quill pen) Enter Art Carney. 'Prithee, Itchy, sit you in this chair. I Bring a Life Day gift, a merry dance by Diahann Carroll. Pass the time while Lumpy watches Jefferson Starship.'

[[folder:The Journey to Melonia, cause People Wanted Me to Talk About It]]
* Kyle's various attempts at pronouncing director Per Åhlin's name, before giving up and calling him "Peter Allen."
* "He also directed something called ''The Dunderklumpen'', a title which I will repeat until I get tired of saying it. [[InherentlyFunnyWord Which may be never.]] '''Dunderklumpen!'''"

[[folder:Jean-Luc Godard's King Lear: A Movie About No Thing]]
* On Twitter, Kyle described his setup: "For note taking purposes I got [[WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows @ShadowTodd]] to watch Godard's ''Theatres/KingLear'' with me. I have never seen him more hate-filled." Todd's twitter supports this.
-->I watched a movie last night with @KyleKallgren that he's reviewing for Shakespeare Month. Godard's "King Lear."\\
You know, I like to think I'm a smart guy who doesn't knee-jerk reject things he doesn't get. But I hated it. With every fiber of my being.\\
I hated it so fucking much. I hated every goddamn second of it. I hated, hated, hated, this movie.\\
I felt the same way I did watching Uwe Boll's ''Film/HouseOfTheDead'' or Shyamalan's ''Film/LadyInTheWater'': This is ARROGANTLY shitty\\
There are two kinds of pretension. One is the crazy kind that's genuinely in love with all its ridiculous ideas.\\
The other is the lazy kind that says "I will shit in a box and you'll adore me for it because it's shit I made". Godard's ''King Lear'' is this.
* The video's blurb:
-->''The infamously enigmatic Godard was once foolishly asked to give his take on Creator/WilliamShakespeare. The results are baffling. The second fan-picked film was produced by people who loved film in the worst way, and directed by a man who hates film in the best way.''
* He opens by clapping an Creator/UmbertoEco book to his face.
-->'''Kyle:''' This movie. This movie should not exist. Just... rationally. It should not exist. It's like if film history itself divided by zero. It's... this is... Creator/JeanLucGodard's ''King Lear.''\\
(trailer for "Creator/PatrickStewart in ''King of Texas'')\\
'''Kyle:''' No, no, no, no. That's [[Franchise/StarTrek Jean-Luc]] ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Picard's]]'' ''King Lear'', and that's King Lear as a cowboy. This is weirder."
* He points out that the movie was backed by Creator/TheCannonGroup, the company behind ''Breakin2ElectricBoogaloo'', the ''Film/DeathWish'' franchise, and Creator/ChuckNorris becoming an action star.
-->'''Kyle:''' This pairing. This is like [=McDonald's=] serving kale shakes. This is like the Arc Music Factory signing Music/{{Radiohead}}. Imagine turning on your TV and seeing "Tonight, on [[Series/TwoBrokeGirls 2 Broke Girls]], the girls get a visit from Serbian grandmother of performance art, Marina Abramovic!"
* Kyle's theory for how Menahem Golan chose Godard: pull a name out of a hat.
* Kyle describing, in a deadpan voice, all the stuff Godard got up to, such as opening the movie with a recording of Golan on the phone, or announcing in voiceover that a couple of scenes were the only scenes they got with Creator/NormanMailer and his daughter before they left the project completely.
* "It's set in an alternate future where the Chernobyl disaster has destroyed all culture. Yes." (displays shots that show no evidence of this, and adopts an absolutely deadpan tone) "Wow. Look at that devastation. See the fruits of our hubris. What hath humankind wrought. [[Franchise/{{Fallout}} Mime. Mime never changes.]]" (For another ''Fallout'' reference, he pops up "Quest Added: The Play's The Thing" in blocky green text over a shot.)
* Describing Godard's CreatorCameo:
-->'''Kyle:''' Godard himself appears in the film with wires on his head, doing a really mean impression of Burgess Meredith behind his back."
* After Godard farts in main character William Shakespeare Junior the Fifth's face:
-->'''Kyle:''' (doubled over with laughter) "That was Godard ''literally'' farting on Shakespeare! This movie shouldn't exist!"
* "Godard is playing the fool. Not just idiomatically; he's taking the role of the Fool. Three fools, actually. First, as the Fool who shows Lear the root of his foolishness. Second, as his role in this film, showing Shakespeare Jr the root of ''his''' foolishness. And third, as Godard the director, making this movie for an idiot who actually thought this would be a good idea."
* "And truth be told, that's a fascinating take on ''Lear''... I should add that by 'fascinating' I don't mean 'watchable'."
* "And that, Mr Golan, is why I didn't make your movie. Nyeh-nyeh-nyeh-nyeh-nyeh-nyehhhh." (scene of Godard farting, with the Cannon Group logo superimposed on Shakespeare Jr's face)

[[folder:Ran: The Shakespearean Apocalypse]]
* While the review as a whole is quite serious due to the deathly contextual pall[[note]]Creator/AkiraKurosawa was 75 and living in a period of heightened Cold War tensions when he completed the film, having outlived his wife and most of his co-stars and friends[[/note]] hanging over the film, Kyle still spots a moment for levity with a semi-comic shot where Hidetora patiently waits for death as flaming arrows shoot into the walls behind him.
-->'''Kyle:''' ... I cannot help myself.\\
'''Caption:''' [[{{Webcomic/Gunshow}} THIS IS FINE]]
* The trouble with Google Translate [[Main/RunningGag continues]]:
-->'''Kyle:''' Ran. A single word, single syllable. Translated from Japanese, it means...
-->'''Google Translate:''' [[Main/ShapedLikeItself Ran.]] ''[Kyle presses the button again]'' [[Main/ShapedLikeItself Ran.]] ''[Kyle presses the button again]'' [[Main/ShapedLikeItself Ran.]]
-->'''Kyle:''' I swear to god...

[[folder: Jiri Trnka's A Midsummer Night's Dream]]
* When Kyle needs help pronouncing Trnka's name, he reverses the translator gag from his ''Throne of Blood'' review by having the device pronounce Trnka's name correctly. In response, he says "Jersey Turnpike!"
* "A Midsummer Night's Dream. I finally get to talk about a non-porn version."

[[folder: Chimes at Midnight - The Creation of an Accidental Tragedy]]
* Kyle refers to the sprawling "Henriad" as the small and anonymous folio ''The Famous Victories of Henry the Fifth'', but "rebooted" by Shakespeare "as a multi-part, gritty franchise property -- the Henry the Fifth Theatrical Universe, if you will".
-->''(Musical sting from'' The Avengers ''as the plays are laid out in a graphic like the Marvel Cinematic timeline, complete with thematically appropriate title fonts)''[[note]]''The Merry Wives of Windsor'', the most comic of the bunch, gets the ''Guardians of the Galaxy'' font, for example.[[/note]]\\
'''Kyle:''' Yeah -- the more things change...
* ♫ ♪ "Guess who he didn't mention~?" ♫ ♪
* Kyle (very accurately) comparing Shakespeare's AuthorFilibuster in ''{{Theatre/Hamlet}}'' about bad acting to subtweeting, complete with a passage that seems to directly call Will Kemp out for showboating and upstaging other players in his clowning, as well as offending the nobility with his coarse ad-libs for the groundlings.
* '''[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons NOTE: Falstaff Died On the Way Back to His Home Planet]]'''

[[folder:Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence]]
* Almost all jokes in this video are ''pitch'' black, this one included, but that said, while introducing the film it centers on, Kyle names some of the notable people involved in its creation. When he feels like he's forgetting someone but can't quite place who, Music/DavidBowie appears as one of the main characters. Cut to Kyle with a huge, excited grin on his face... before he, er, remembers one of the reasons 2016 hasn't been a very happy year.
-->'''Kyle''': ... Oh, right. ''[Looks aside.]'' I'm sad, now.
** The Bowie introduction itself is amazing, as Kyle gives him [[Film/{{Zoolander}} a freeze-frame and incredibly 80's sliding credit while cueing up "Let's Dance"]].
* "Because if there's one thing that unites all people of all nations, it's unquenchable sexual attraction to David Bowie."

* Kyle uses the logo for BlackMirror to censor a scene of bestiality involving a pig.[[note]]It's a reference to the Series One episode "The National Anthem."[[/note]]
* Kyle opens the review discussing his CreatorBacklash toward his comedic older material. Come the depressing conclusions the film provides...
-->Oh... So that's why I just used to tell jokes.

* There's something amusing about how he gives ''WesternAnimation/BeeMovie'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' the same on-screen citations as the serious works he references.
* Kyle explains that the concept of the ego being an entity distinct from the self has been examined in various philosophical and theological texts... and also ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons.'' Cue the "twenty dollars can buy many peanuts" exchange.
* Kyle's reaction to the film's sudden ArtShift for one action sequence.
* '''"[[RunningGag FEAR]] [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment MEEE]]!!"'''
* A meta example: In making parallels between the characters' names and their biblical counterparts, Kyle unknowingly shows Hebrew ''transliteration'' of Samuel rather than the actual translation (Shmuel). Conclusion: Kyle was once more burned by Google Translate.

* Kyle phrases the question posited by the film as "what does it mean to know?" He then carries on with a series of related questions about "knowing", while the video cuts to the scene where [[spoiler:the main character drills into his own head]]. Then Kyle's monologue degenerates into "[[RapidFireNo no, no, no, no, no, no no no, no...]]"
-->''[cut back to Kyle, who sighs deeply]'' [[{{Squick}} I know.]]

[[folder:Shakespeare In Love]]
* Kyle points out many of the anachronisms and errors that unfortunately make the premise false, ending with "Shakespeare didn't write the story of Romeo and Juliet."
-->''(cut to image of Roland Emmerich smiling with two thumbs up)''
-->'''Kyle:''' No. Go away. Go away.
* His decision to compare and contrast ''Shakespeare In Love'' with another film from the decade, ''[[spoiler:Film/NakedLunch]]''. With full knowledge of exactly how it will look to the audience.
* "Great job [[Creator/JudiDench Judi]], have all the Oscars." ''[a canon shoots hundreds of tiny Oscars that fill up the screen.]''
** Becomes a BrickJoke at the conclusion of the review, where Kyle endorses the film, saying that while it might not tell the facts about Shakespeare's life, it still manages to tell truth about his art.
--> '''Kyle:''' By all means, have all the Oscars.
-->''[canon releases, fills the screen with Oscars again]''
-->'''Kyle:''' [[AwardSnub Except the one that should have gone to]] ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'', [[AwardSnub because come on.]]

* An animation of Shakespeare attempts to express his sadness poetically, one of which being [[Music/LinkinPark "Crawling in my skin, these wounds they will not heal!"]]
* While discussing the necessary push and pull of profanity and restraint for sexual innuendo to work ([[HehHehYouSaidX "Heh, push and pull."]]), he provides this description without missing a beat:
-->'''Kyle:''' Whenever you're joking about sex, [[IKEAErotica get too clinical, the joke dies in fire.]] [[BottomOfTheBarrelJoke Get too explicit, the joke dies in frost,]] [[BreathlessNonSequitur I am good at metaphors.]]

[[folder:The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension]]
* Kyle spends the majority of the video exploring intertextuality and the evolution of superhero tropes before reverting to his old formula, [[SelfDemonstrating itself an example of intertextuality]].
-->'''Kyle:''' [[SelfDeprecation Now here comes the part where I namedrop a French dude.]]
-->'''Kyle (V.O.):''' Structural literary theorist Gérard Genette...
-->'''Kyle:''' There we go...
** After describing Genette's theory of "transtextuality":
-->'''Kyle:''' Therefore, according to Genette, the architext of the superhero genre relies on the paratext and intertext acting as hypertext. That is the worst sentence I've ever written. ''(gags)''
* Kyle describing the plot of Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar:
-->So, the guy with the robot suit, who disagrees with the 90-year old World War II veteran, just takes this little vacation to Queens, all so he can hire a skinny teenage boy with wrist ejaculators, all so he can fight another guy with a different arthropod gimmick at a German airport with another guy in a robot suit, another 90-year-old veteran, a different guy with a robot backpack, a Russian murder ballerina, a guy with a bow, a woman who wiggles her hands until red stuff comes out, His Majesty King Furry, and a pink British robot with god-bullshit for a brain.

[[folder:Yes, Monster Factory is an Artistic Masterpiece]]
* Kyle applying multiple theories of film studies, [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick a la Lindsay Ellis and her]] [[{{Film/Transformers}} ''The Whole Plate'' series]], to [[Creator/McElroyBrothers Monster Factory]].
* Kyle constantly going ''NeverLiveItDown'' toward Creator/DWGriffith.

[[folder:The Love Witch's Subtle Cinematic Subversion]]
* As Kyle explains that "the average [[Film/BeyondTheValleyOfTheDolls Russ Meyer movie]] is about women, in the same way that an Arby's Ad is about cows", he shows a real Arby's ad of burgers [[https://arbys.com/our-menu/roast-beef/roast-beef/half-pound with a ridiculous amount of beef in them]]. And cites it "Arby's, It's an ad for Arby's", as though it were any other media to be referenced.

[[folder:Tommy Wiseau: The Last Auteur]]
* The [[GagSub on-screen summary]] as Kyle define's three characteristics of an auteur:
-->1. Movies are director's fault
-->2. Gud directors make pretty
-->3. gR8 directrs r 2deep4u
* The caption identifying theorist Pauline Kael as "film critic, [[Series/GameOfThrones First of Her Name]]". Later, she's identified as Pauline "[[Characters/GameOfThrones Khaleesi]]" Kael.

!!Between the Lines

[[folder:The Avengers]]
* Immediately noting the literal answer to the question "What does Steve Rogers stand for?"
-->'''Kyle:''' Well, duh, the A doesn't stand for France. (''shows [[https://arousinggrammardotcom.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/captainamericaultimates10.jpg the infamous panel of Ultimate Captain America]]'')
* Saying that Tony isn't a boy like the inventor heroes of the penny dreadfuls he's being compared to... then admitting he's mentally one, at least (''shows the party scene from Iron Man 2'')
* Going into the various differences between Marvel's take on Norse myths and the original [[spoiler:... slowly descending into BreadEggsMilkSquick when he gets to the Norse Loki giving birth to Sleipnir. Cut to Loki's post-Hulk bashing catatonia as Kyle awkwardly cuts the subject]].
* When questioning what happens when the moralities clash with each other, the scene shown is Steve and Tony's argument on the Helicarrier. As if to answer his question, [[spoiler: out comes the teaser title for ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar'']].
* His (possibly faux) exasperation on the upcoming Phase 3 movies, with each word in his PunctuatedForEmphasis set to showing the numerous series and movies still being shelled out:
-->'''Kyle:''' How! Many! Damn! Superhero! Movies! Do! We! Really! Need! Anyway!? (''cut to Film/HowardTheDuck'')

[[folder:Fallout: The Future we Choose]]
* This:
-->'''Moira Brown''': I think I'm turning into a Ghoul.
-->'''Kyle''': You should be turning into a corpse.
* Also this at the beginning, when he gets killed by feral ghouls in Vault 34 while talking about the environment's role in the series:
-->'''Kyle''': ... making the land just a bit more fertile, even if that means getting your guns loaded and clearing out a vault of glowing radioactive living [[CensoredForComedy oh sh** oh sh** sh** sh** sh**]]!

[[folder:From Caligari to Hitler: Imagining the Tyrant]]
* It's a mostly serious video, but it does have its light moments. Kyle says that the video will be sympathetic to "cultural Marxism" and if you have a problem with it, "'''I DON'T GIVE A SHIIIIIIIII...'''"

!!Other Videos and Appearances

* His ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' in 5 seconds, with the destruction of Earth inter-cut with that episode of ''Series/RedDwarf'' where Lister plays pool with planets.
* His cameos for other characters can apply as well:
** His measured, well-researched attempt to explain pirates to Sad Panda on "Forget About It: ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''."

** When two characters see a group of 'freaks' dancing around, Diamanda/Oan plays rave music over the top.
* In 2013, [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oancitizen/election-cycle-a-political-satire-with-time-travel/posts/392933 Kyle began a Kickstarter]] for raise money for the budget of his short film for his film course. The money was quickly raised by his fans, but Kyle found his horror that the total sum was [[spoiler:over 9000!]]
** In the Kickstarter video, the HurricaneOfPuns as he tries to find a good name for his political time-traveling movie:
-->And personally, I cannot wait to make ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Carville James Carville]]: Adventures in Time''.
-->And I cannot wait to make ''[[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Super-Pac to the Future.]]''

[[TakeThat Might as well be playing to an audience of unicorns.]]" [[ComicallyMissingThePoint His fandom jumped all over this]], [[https://twitter.com/the_ever_cynic/status/334373423906185216 immediately calling themselves]] "unicorns".

* Kyle's review of ''Film/{{Eraserhead}}''. Who would ever think that someone could get so angry over [[spoiler:An AprilFoolsDay joke]] featuring poorly-shot [[spoiler:footage of pencils, sharpeners, and Chicken Mc Nuggets]].
* In the "Between the Lines" video about Music/TheBeatles, to explain the iamb, Kyle [[MotorMouth swiftly cites]] Shakespeare, Coleridge... and "Why Don't We Do It in the Road?".
