These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
He's gone on record of acknowledging those who don't care for his opinion; "Screw you, I'm not here for you (I don't even know why I'm here)". However, he's also said that even those who don't like him will still respect him for at least maintaining his opinions instead of bowing to public pressure.
An even better example may be Josh, co-host of Radiodrome. A quick glance through the comments shows that his hatred of most things released after the 80's has earned him a large number of enemies amongst Brad's fans.
Much like with JesuOtaku and Doug Walker, the group's negative reaction to Man of Steel hasn't gone so well either. Saying that he got more enjoyment out of Superman IIIandSuperman IV: The Quest For Peace certainly didn't help their case.
Jake is one for "Team Snob", even getting to co-host the 2011 worst movies list. In the truest expression of this trope, Lloyd the cat ends up sitting on the lap for the review.
As of 2013, Jake's midnight screenings are the most popular on the site.
Fan Dumb: Some of his fans accused Oancitizen of Brows Held High of being a knock-off because he also wears a suit in his reviews and provides a more intellectual angle than most. The thing is, Brad is doing a parody of stuck-up film critics while Kyle has a theater background and is being genuine with the points being brought up. Aside from that, the tone and style of the reviews are completely different, to say nothing of the fact that the two reviewers focus on different genres (B-movies and arthouse cinema respectively).
One episode of Brad & Jerrid is titled "Brad & Jerrid Hate Each Other", where the two of them (in-character) argue with each other over the film The Tree of Life. This becomes rather awkward in retrospect after the two had a real-life falling out in early 2012 that led to Jerrid being kicked out of Team Snob.
He's been welcomed back in as of late...but Brad got his revenge in his violent Shit 4 review by ripping off his dick to see how easy it was compared to the movie. He leaves the room with his hands covered in blood, grins at the camera, and says, "Yes...that was easy."
A sub-plot in 80's Dan involves R.O.B. trying to break-up Mrs. Crabtree's marriage in order to get with her. Mr. and Mrs. Crabtree were played by a real-life husband and wife (Brian and Sarah) who broke up after the last episode of the series.
Brad getting kicked out of the house by Jillian for bashing Twilight is now pretty awkward to watch after Brad announced that he and Jillian have separated.
Jake in the Worst Movies of 2011 list said when speaking of Chipwrecked that "It's a good thing I didn't have a gun in the theater because I would have shot myself."
Genius Bonus: Especially in his earlier reviews. If you get every reference to the many films that get name-dropped, bravo to you.
Harsher in Hindsight: Jake's reaction to That's My Boy makes you wonder exactly what the "beating up someone who was threatening a child" incident was that made him miss The Zookeeper.
In the Ice Age: Continental Drift review with Jake, Brad mentions that his mother is a lesbian. Suddenly, his anger at the homophobia in Rock: It's Your Decision takes on a whole new light.
How Can I Tell If I'm Really In Love when he acknowledges how difficult and exhausting adultrelationships actually are, not long before his Real Life separation — not to mention that Jillian's big line in the episode "Fuck you, prick!" Happily enough, Brad and Jillian are still close friends.
The "slaveowner Brian" cracks get much less funny after his and Irving's review of 12 Years a Slave.
Hilarious in Hindsight: His first Brad Tries video was of Mountain Dew White Out, which he disliked and thought would end up discontinued after the Dewmocracy promotion. That becomes hilarious when one learns that it, in fact, won the Dewmocracy contest and is now sold permanently in stores.
The entirety of Goldengirl: the 1979 movie centers around a young female athlete's struggles to get to the 1980 Moscow Olympics...which as the Snob repeatedly points out, the U.S. ended up boycotting.
In the Weasels Rip My Flesh review, the characters erroneously call weasels rodents — they're actually mustelids, same family as otters — and one clip even shows what is obviously a gerbil as a stand-in. Later on, when reviewing Animalympics, Brad calls Dean the otter a rodent.
"There's no such thing as happy dreams, right? Everyone has nightmares every night like me? Please tell me I'm normal."
R.O.B. in 80's Dan. He loves their neighbor Mrs. Crabtree, and she tends to respond well to his flirting, but she's married and anytime it looks like R.O.B. has a shot with her, her husband shows up. Also qualifies as Jerkass Woobie.
From the Midnight Screenings: Some consider Jake this... considering the movies he had to go see in Summer 2011. Then in 2012, he had to see an Adam Sandler movie.
