** His normal "Critique of X" are a bit more 'nuanced' about this, breaking down both positive and negative small touches alike even if the work itself is not something he finds to be of a good enough quality. He'll quote a soldier for briefly calling the planet they are on a "salt planet" just to separate it from Hoth as cheap and a poor CallBack, but will praise something as subtle as Finn grabbing Rey's hand as a growth of their trust by breaking down the nuances of the scene and how well it establishes both characters. Arguably things get a little too 'nuanced' around the 6th hour of the video.

Added DiffLines:

* ChewbaccaDefense: EFAP viewings of Creator/BobChipman interpret him as the Gish Gallop version of debate, talking quickly and using needlessly complicating wording to appear intellectually superior without ever making a convincing argument or point. The EFAP crew even slow down his videos to 3/4 speed and it becomes clear how little he's actually able to articulate his views.


Added DiffLines:

* OverlyLongGag: The EFAP viewing of Donal T. Delay's videos deliberately slow them down as possible for comedic effect due to his already slow voice.

Added DiffLines:

* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: EFAP #50 features nearly every guest from past EFAP episodes, from regulars like Fringy and WebVideo/JayExci, to other less frequent guests like [=JLongbone=] and WebVideo/ESemicolonR.


** [=MauLer=] has comended Jonathan [=McIntosh=], if only for the fact that he respects that [=McIntosh=] doesn’t use the phrase “in my opinion” in his analysis videos. He is that sure of his perspective on media. [=MauLer=] has admitted that he wishes that [=McIntosh=] would actually be willing to explore the perspectives of people he disagrees with.

* AprilFoolsDay: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SC4PGwynvQo GDELB]], a video filled with {{clickbait gag}}s, [[CriticalResearchFailure blatant factual errors]], made-up terms meant to complicate simple ideas, and pretentious delivery mocking typical video essayists and far far shorter than the usual fair.

Added DiffLines:

* SitcomArchNemesis: Quinton Reviews seems to be this for [=MauLer=] and the EFAP crew. Differing views on The Last Jedi aside, they generally find him to be a spineless liar who's willing to go back on his old views and diss other [=YouTubers=] he once referred to as friends as losers and bigots to suck up to whatever bandwagon comes into line.


* EveryoneHasStandards: Make no mistake about it, [=MauLer=] is not afraid to be critical of someone as a person in his videos if he thinks they are deserving of it. However, [=MauLer=] never once advocates that you should use that to justify harassing someone over the video, and that you should at least try to be willing to open an exchange with someone you disagree with. For example; when he watched the LetsPlay/Videogamedunkey video "Game Critics (Part 2)" and saw Dunkey mock someone for making a response to one of his videos, [=MauLer=] was very vocal about how he thought that Dunkey stepped out of line, and basically made a video where he threw his fanbase at a smaller channel out of spite.

[=MauLer=] (real name unknown) is a [[CausticCritic cynical critic]] who reviews both movies and videogames, and also, along with fellow reviewers Rags and [=DishonoredWolf=] run a podcast called “EFAP" (Every Frame A Pause) where they discuss media. He is known primarily for the extreme length of his videos and his focus on what he deems to be objectivity, where he purports to rely on 'research' and references to determine whether a film or game is of quality or not. To keep his critiques 'entertaining' he throws in plenty of DeadpanSnarker, especially when he finds what he is reviewing to be terrible.

terrible.



* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Prefers to title his videos in this manner, with "A Critique of X" and "X: An Unbridled Rage". It's not fully accurate, however, because he refrains from adding the adjective 'interminable' before the word 'critique'.

* JerkassHasAPoint: While he is very blunt about his criticisms and does not sugarcoat anything he has to say, a lot of what he has to say is highly questionable, if you care enough to question it.

** "Captain Marvel: An Unbridled Meh" has him sarcastically say "YouGoGirl" after Carol does something dickish, dangerous, or downright stupid while being portrayed as empowering. Needless to say, this is just as infinitely hilarious as it sounds.

* ShownTheirWork: He puts a ton of time into rewatching or replaying whatever he is going to talk about. As a result, his videos are very long because he wants to make sure ''everything'' is captured correctly. Whether he achieves this is arguable.

* AppealToRidicule: Tends to ridicule certain counters and arguments he finds terrible by repeating them in an American accent before tearing them apart in his usual accent. This is exactly as funny as it sounds.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: At worst he is this, but without the heart of gold. [=MauLer=] is known for being blunt and having no desire to sugarcoat things, if he feels something is important to say, he will say it regardless of how someone feels. At the same time, he is very honest and always extends an olive branch to anyone who he discusses in a video, even if he does not agree with them at all. Several youtubers he has been critical of who did come and talk to him admitted he was a good guy.

* AntiClimax: One episode of EFAP has everyone watching No Bullshit’s “SJW Moments in Avengers Infinity War”, and after seeing him fume about a scene with female characters teaming up, they anticipate his reaction to the “girl power” scene in ''Endgame''. To their surprise and disappointment, he basically just mentions it as a little stupid and nothing more. What a thrill-ride that was.

Yes, he's really that badass. Watch out.

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: [=MauLer=] has pointed out several times that many of his fellow Website/YouTube critics/essayists will use the phrase “It’s just my opinion” as a sort of shield to protect themselves from criticism if and when they say something that someone might find objectionable or just flat out wrong. MauLer instead uses the word 'objective' to protect himself from criticism, which is a very different thing indeed.
