YMMV / Bogleech


  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Odds are, if he reviews a fictional work, he'll do this. ESPECIALLY if it's something for kids.
  • Critical Dissonance: When he reviews any given work of fiction, this happens surprisingly often:
    • He's stated on his Tumblr that he's not a big fan of Steven Universe, South Park, Futurama, and Pixar. The first is due to his dislike of its inconsistent pacing, the second due to what he sees as a right-wing bias on the show, the third due to its general decline in quality after its revival, and the fourth due to how overly formulaic and safe he finds most of their films to be, as well as their tendency to overuse the same soft, simple types of character design rather than trying new, unorthodox ones (he does like WALL•E and Finding Nemo, though).
    • He doesn't seem to like much DEVILMAN crybaby either, judging by these posts. Basically his usual complaints about modern anime that are too sexualised, even if in DC's case that's partially the point.
    • On the main site itself, he's repeatedly voiced his dislike of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, mostly because of his opinion that it wasted a perfectly good plot with its focus on people playing a card game instead of the monsters themselves.
    • In his Pokémon Reviews, he's come to the defense of a number of unpopular Mons, including Jynx, Klinklang, and especially Garbodor. Conversely, his least favorite is one that's highly popular: Lucario.
    • ...on that matter, to say he was pissed off about Sliggoo's face changing after evolving into Goodra would be an understatement.
    • And of course, his love of insects and other "ugly" animals could be considered this applied to real life itself, since so few other people seem to appreciate nature the way he does.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Anytime he talks about a real-life animal. Despite how most of them are seen as disgusting, freaky, or scary by most people, he loves them all and makes that very clear. Except dolphins.
    • This article starts out talking about Nessie, then branches out into Bogleech's love for real-life weird zoology in a way that's very heartwarming.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The girl in Zombie Fans is rather popular.
  • Friendly Fandoms: With the SCP Foundation. They both frequently talk about the weird, the scary, and the surreal, monsters are common on both sights, and there are articles on Bogleech detailing his favorite SCPs. The fact that he's a member definitely helps.
  • My Real Daddy: While the Luminous Big Kito Extrusion Nausea Maggots (aka Magboils) and Skilevaks (actually a name invented by a fan) may have started as cheap Halloween decorations, Wojcik has done more with them than whoever created them ever dreamed.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • His thoughts regarding the bullying and suicide of a young homosexual Deviantart user. He sounds legitimately shocked and infuriated that such hateful scum could thrive.
    • The "Don't Get Spooked!" game is mostly humorously tongue-in-cheek. Even in the parallel twisted version of the hotel, there are things that are more odd than outright horrifying. But in the Dark World, there is one monster, Babymama, that is genuinely sad. She's a woman that cannot give birth to the dozens of fetuses trapped inside of her. The concept sounds gross but the accompanying text makes it tragic:
      Babymama appears very pale.
      Babymama appears very lonely.
      Babymama is not well. She can never be well.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: In his review of Yu-Gi-Oh!'s "Worm" monsters, Wojcik mentions that this is why he never cared much for the anime: it focuses on people playing a card game rather than the bizarre and creative world that's hinted at within that card game.
  • Ugly Cute: Some of the nightmarish things that show up are actually pretty adorable.
