Trivia / Midnight Screenings

  • Creator Backlash: It's said that Jillian doesn't like doing the show anymore, hence her infrequent appearances.
  • Enforced Method Acting: The video on Breaking Dawn Part 1 with Jillian getting plastered with all kinds of messy things. She revealed she knew what the items were, but didn't know when she'd get hit with them.
  • Market-Based Title: Midnight Screenings is titled Brads Current Movie Reviews on That Guy with the Glasses, and acts as a composite series of both Midnight Screenings and the similarly titled Brad Jones Current Movie Reviews from the Cinema Snob site.
  • Name's the Same: Since there are two Brians (Brian Lewis and Brian Irving), the latter is referred to by his last name. Also, the Vaxxed review features a one-time guest named Sara (no H), who is a different person than usual reviewer Sarah.
  • No Budget: The show only requires a camera, a dashboard, lights and the people reviewing to be there. Any actual budget is spent on tickets, refreshments and the occasional incentive.
  • Referenced by...: Cinema Snob Reviews Frozen (a fan comic where The Cinema Snob reviews Frozen) uses a few pics from this series, such as how Hilarious in Hindsight it is to see Jake bash Frozen from the trailers, when he would gush about the actual movie.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: The video on The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was temporarily taken down by Warner Bros., despite Brad pointing out that it was a review by two people in a car that had no footage from the movie whatsoever. The lack of legal standing meant that the video was re-uploaded the same day. What makes this even more of a Headscratcher is the fact that this was a favorable review of the movie that, if anything, would encourage more people to go see it.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: While talking about Gravity, Sarah and Brad discuss if the movie should have ended with Sandra Bullock finding the half-buried Statue of Liberty from Planet of the Apes. Sergio AragonÚs did a similar cartoon for MAD.
  • Throw It In: Despite the unscripted nature of the show, this can still happen. It's how the "Slaver Brian" joke got started.
