* 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.''

** Of particular note is ''The Dark'', a film originally about a murderous zombie that was rewritten as a space alien to try and ride the coat tails of ''Franchise/StarWars''. The change was accomplished pretty much solely by badly adding in laser effects during murder scenes.

Added DiffLines:

** He makes a reappearance for the Film/GodzillaFinalWars video, this time with a [[AxCrazy rather large axe.]]
** He's finally taken down in the Film/GodzillaAndMothraTheBattleForEarth video - not by Brandon, but by the Canadian winter. The last we see of him is him lying facedown in the snow, [[TalkingWithSigns holding a note]] reading "FUCK ME, IT'S COLD!"

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: When Brandon reviewed ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' he noted the presence of Don Frye, MMA fighter and pro wrestler who the director was a fan of. He briefly made fun of the idea of bringing in a pro wrestler to garner attention, right before his video had a cameo from Simon Gotch (pro wrestler and half of the former Wrestling/{{WWE}} tag team the Vaudevillains).


** Any movie with a bunch of alternate titles will have ''[[Film/ReazioneACatena A Bay of Blood]]'' be the last listed.

* OverusedRunningGag: 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/MiamiConnection'' 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.
