Trivia: The Cinema Snob
  • Colbert Bump:
    • After YouTube closed Brad Jones' account, Spoony posted a few of his reviews on his website and caused his popularity to surge.
    • Also, a number of movies have gone on to cult status since appearing on his show, such as Nudist Colony of the Dead, Zombie 90, and anything starring Pierre Kirby or directed by Bruno Mattei.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: The Snob suffers an unfortunate case when he sees the lead in Italian Batman is Mark Shannon, the same guy from Porno Holocaust (which he referenced earlier in the review). It's unfortunate because Shannon suffers from genital warts.
    • What do Charlie Sheen, George Clooney, Laura Dern and John Rhys-Davies have in common? They all appeared in the unfinished Grizzly II!
    • He expresses absolute bafflement at the presence of Costas Mandylor in E.T.: The Porno.
    • He notices "King Pooper" in Super Hornio Bros. is Beaver in Beaver and Buttface (by drawing on his face with MS Paint!).
    • At one point, he joked about renaming his show The John Carradine Show. Had an opening credits sequence and everything, with John singing "Night Train to Mundo Fine" from Red Zone Cuba.
    • The main character in Pieces is Rick from Pod People, allowing him to both make jokes about Pod People while reviewing Pieces and make jokes about Pieces while reviewing the unriffed, original version of Pod People.
    • In a case of "Hey, It's That Toy!", the infamous toy robot henchman from Ninja Terminator is a knockoff of Omega Supreme.
  • Missing Episode: Grizzly II can no longer be seen after the film's producer went berserk.
    • YouTube to the rescue.
      • Brad tells the story of this episode's legal troubles on commentary in the con-exclusive DVD. He also implies - but doesn't state explicitly - that he's the one that posted it on YouTube.
    • Also, the Sexploitation trilogy, if you live in a country where Veoh is blocked, or don't feel like fucking up your computer with unwarranted spyware just to watch beyond the first five minutes.
  • Name's the Same: The Snob reviewed a movie called "[Porno] Midnight Heat" because it had the same title as a movie Brad and friends made in 2007.
  • Talking to Himself: Sometimes, Brad-As-Himself and Cinema Snob verbally disagree with one another as if they're in the same room; Cinema Snob hates everything, while Brad loves horrible movies, so of course they clash.
    • In the review of The Story Of Ricky, the Snob not only talks to Kung Tai Ted, the two have a full-fledged fight scene.
  • Too Soon: The Snob cracks a joke about Oscar Pistorius shooting through a door in the Crackerjack review. He acknowledges it's too soon, but then promptly tells his viewers to fuck off.
    • He asks if it's too soon to make a joke about Roger Ebert writing a movie that features a song called "Sweet Talking Candy Man", then gives up and lets an unseen audience boo at him.
  • What Could Have Been: The second part of the I Spit on Your Grave review was supposed to open with a nit-picky rant from the Third Rate Gamer. But he couldn't do it due to schedule issues, so Brad got Josh Hadley to do it instead.
