* GratuitousItalian: In his review of ''Film/{{Demoni}}'', Brandon tosses a "C'è terminata, stronzo! ([[Film/TheTerminator You're terminated, fucker!]]" when the heroes kill the final demon in the theater, who looks like a Terminator because of its metal mask.



* MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting: He's done several jokes regarding being Canadian, including reviewing several bad movies made in the country and using the name of the national anthem as a ReviewIronicEcho when he does.

* LoonyFan: His review of ''Film/GodzillaVsKingGhidorah'' is "forced" into production by one of these, who messages Brandon that he's outside his house and will [[GroinAttack castrate him with a pair of pliers]] unless he makes a new Godzilla film review... [[NotHyperbole and when Brandon looks out the window, there he is, pliers and all]].


Added DiffLines:

** Fans constantly asking him when the next review of a ''Godzilla'' movie will come out, as well as ''Godzilla's Revenge'' being a personal TraumaButton.


* DullSurprise: A sailor at the beginning of ''A*P*E'' is either stoned out of his mind or really badly dubbed (or both). His dull "Oh shit" made Brandon crack up.

** Dubbing in [[Series/ChappellesShow "Psych!"]] whenever a movie does a ShockingSwerve. After his review of ''A*P*E'', this has alternated with a clip of a sailor saying a very bored "Oh shit".

** To mock the really shoddy 3-D in ''A*P*E'', Brandon cuts to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLVZAoQB2fI Doctor Tongue's Evil House of Pancakes]] from ''Series/{{SCTV}}''.
** Another from the ''A*P*E'' review: he can't think of a joke about the lead actress being the mom from ''Series/GrowingPains'', so he cuts to a clip from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' that makes the joke for him.

* RunningGagged: After playing the battle music from the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode ''Amok Time'' OnceAnEpisode during his "Creator/DougMcClure-a-Thon" (with varying degrees of earnestness) he played only five seconds of the music in the final review ("Warriors of Atlantis") before stopping it and saying he was bored of it.

to:

** Playing a snippet of "Drinkin' Boys" by DJ Ozma (AKA the one with a bunch of naked siners covering themselves with paper fans) when he wants to refer to Japanese media being ''weird''.

** The above-mentioned running gag with "Drinkin' Boys" comes to an end in the review of ''Film/LegendOfDinosaursAndMonsterBirds'' with him stopping the video snippet and saying he's tired of
it.

* OverusedRunningRag: Not so much lampshaded that he uses it a lot so much as lampshading why he didn't used it: In his review of ''Film/TheGalaxyInvader'' he points out that he didn't used the "no-one will be seated during the ''[[SarcasmMode thrilling]]'' [boring segment where nothing interesting happens]" RunningGag because there are ''so many'' segments where nothing happens that he would have run it into the ground.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: Joked about in his review of ''Film/MiamiConnection'', after the hero band sings a song called "Against The Ninja". Brandon lampshades the bad guys are a ninja dojo and says that maybe the reason they are out to kill the heroes is because they are offended by the song.

Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeRelative: For the ''Film/CryingFreeman'' review, Brandon mentions that stars Mark Dacascos and Julie Condra, who are married in real life.


* TheCameo: So far, WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob showed up in the ''Alienator'' review, and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] loaned Brandon an "[[CatchPhrase I AM A MAN!!!]]" for ''America 3000.'' Brandon has also cameoed in Linkara's 500th Episode 3-parter.

Added DiffLines:

* NamesTheSame: Has to resort to a PrecisionFStrike when the lamest-looking of [[Film/RikiOhTheStoryOfRicky the Gang of Four]] is named Brandon.


* MemeticBadass: InUniverse. As [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]] did for Reb Brown and as the [[WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob Snob]] did for Pierre Kirby, Brandon does for Doug [=McClure=], highlighting a scene in ''The People That Time Forgot'' where [=McClure=] takes an ''arrow to the face'' and just shrugs it off.

* KidAppealCharacter: Brandon dislikes most small child characters in films, noting his disdain for the kids in ''Film/{{Gunhed}}'', and claiming that it's part of the reason that he prefers ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' over ''Franchise/{{Gamera}}''. In his review of ''Film/SonOfGodzilla'', he notes that while Minya was created to appeal to kids, even when he was young he watched Godzilla films for Godzilla, rather than his son. It's since become a BerserkButton (or more like "snark button") and he made a label for all of them: "Kennys".

** In early 2016, Brandon has done a "Franchise/{{Gamera}}-a-thon," a series reviewing the Showa ''Gamera'' films. Although he clamied that he wasn't really a Gamera fan and was mostly doing the marathon due to fan demand.
