Trivia / Bad Movie Beatdown

  • Accidentally Accurate: The X-Men Origins: Wolverine adds a soundtrack to Logan's Unflinching Walk as Film Brain thinks the scene looks straight out of a cheesy 80s\early 90s action movie. Director Gavin Hood felt the second unit the studio forced on him was doing exactly that, so Mathew was right!
  • Creator Backlash: Mathew has apologized for his comments about Kate Micucci's appearance in his When in Rome review.
  • DVD Commentary: He was one of the first reviewers to release a Kickassia commentary. He also releases commentaries on his past episodes.
  • Old Shame:
    • His The Fast and the Furious review, for three reasons: the material was dull, he doesn't feel he was that good, and his hair was embarrassingly long.
    • As he says in his Ultraviolet review, considers his infamous Equilibrium review to be poorly-done in retrospect, saying that he still lacked experience at the time. He also refers to his Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen review as "rectifying an old mistake," referencing the favourable text review he wrote in 2009.
  • One of Us: Fires off several trope names in his commentary for Kickassia. Also, he has mentioned TV Tropes by name at least twice. And he checks it daily to see what people have written about him. And tweeted in delight when he found out this specific page existed.
  • Re Cut: Once Blip went down and Film Brain was forced to reupload his videos elsewhere, he did some minor cuts beforehand. (one that he couldn't remove due to being a Running Gag is listed on Creator Backlash)
  • Schedule Slip: Bad Movie Beatdown episodes are few and far between these days, although Matthew keeps his hand in the review business with Projector.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: After Blip went down and Film Brain was forced to reupload his videos elsewhere, he changed the opening music "Ready to Roll" to a Mario Paint cover to avoid his videos being copyright-flagged.
  • Throw It In: In the Wrong Side of Town review, he listed off two things as "First" and "B". According to his Twitter, he left it in because it was funny.
  • Too Soon: Delayed the release of the 2012 review in light of the March 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, as well as slightly editing the review and adding a disclaimer in relation to the events.
  • What Could Have Been: Matthew wanted to review the film Torque, but after finding out that the creators intended for the movie to be stupid and over the top, he decided not to.
