YMMV: The Cinema Snob
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Radu appearing for about five seconds in the Karate Girl review. According to Brad, he and Obscurus Lupa decided to just confuse the viewers by having Radu pop up randomly.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The remix of the ET The Extraterrestrial theme used in the opening to E.T. Week.
  • Ear Worm: "Believe it or not, I'm walking on air..."
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Brad's cats.
    • Possibly 80's Dan.
  • Fridge Brilliance: In his review of In Search of the Wow Wow Wibble Woggle Wazzie Woodle Woo, Brad doesn't refer to the titular MacGuffin by its proper name until the end of the movie, neither did Tim.
  • Genius Bonus: Especially in his earlier reviews. If you get every reference to the many films that get name-dropped, bravo to you.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: 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 for DVD-R Hell, Brad calls Dean the otter a rodent.
    • Brad's joke about a hypothetical casino/shark movie called Card Shark is now funnier in light of Sharknado. Todd in the Shadows agrees with this.
    • From Home Sweet Home, "There's a sombrero involved! And I'm sure it's made entirely out of tortilla chips!"
    • In Hercules, the film insists on pronouncing the sorceress Circe's name as Cersei. Two minor characters who appear in the film also resemble Khal Drogo and Daenerys. Keep in mind, this film was made in the 1980's.
    • Also, the lead characters at the end are sucked up into the sky, and now are 'with the Stars', so to speak. Milly Carlucci (the female lead) is now the presenter of the Italian version of Dancing with the Stars.
    • Gayracula and the jokes in it after the release of Dracula Untold where the title character is played by openly gay actor Luke Evans.
  • Jerkass Woobie: The Snob, at his worst moments.
  • Memetic Badass:
    • Ward Bond shot down a German plane with a Tommy gun, shaved Hitler's mustache, and called him "Toots". It was a good week.
    • Pierre Kirby!
  • Narm Charm:
    • Pierre Kirby crying in Dressed to Fire.
    • Pierre Kirby, period.
  • Nausea Fuel: The Snob's description of the Karl Burger in the Violent Shit II review.
  • Never Live It Down: Brad punching Lupa is already being referenced in other folks videos, and his own, too.
  • Tear Jerker: Anytime you see the Cinema Bum.
  • The Woobie: "There's no such thing as happy dreams, right? Everyone has nightmares every night like me? Please tell me I'm normal."
