- Accentuate the Negative: He'll admit to when even a bad movie has something he does enjoy or if it has a line he finds funny.
- Cameo: Averted in one case where he asked for Diamanda Hagan to help him out in the first part of his Necronomicon: Book of the Dead review, only to show a funny cat video, he didn't notice the difference.
- Development Hell: He originally intended to release his first video review in October 2012, but a major computer crash prevented any reviews from happening until May 2013.
- Episode Title Card: His cards are done by Moniek-Kuuper, herself known for her TGWTG fancomics.
- Jaw Drop: Has happened once or twice.
- Lost Forever: Before James began video reviews, he had posted onto Rosenhacker's old site two written reviews for the remake of Prom Night (Which he gave a hugely negative review of.) and The Horror Show (Which he gave a postive review of.), but due to the original site being shut down (and James' computer crashing out), the reviews are lost forever. Same with a video review of Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest he intended to release in 2012 which was affected by the same computer crash that erased his written reviews.
- One of Us: Of course, if his reviews and cutaway jokes say anything, he's a huge fan of SpongeBob SquarePants, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, horror films, metal music and Mel Brooks.
- Rant-Inducing Slight: Whenever the Necronomicon kept making less important appearances in each segment in his Necronomicon reviews, the last time resulted in him telling a abridged version of the next scene in angrish.
- Real Song Theme Tune: His first episode featured Mercyful Fate's Holy Water as his theme song, though with the second episode, it was switched to Progressive Metal band Bad Salad's Nemesis.
- The Stinger: At the end of the credits in each episode, there's always a little comment he'll make, such as warning to use condoms whenever doing a immortal David Warner. or wanting his own pet Cthulhu, but not the one from Neonomicon as they're too rapish for him.
