    Cinema Sins 
  • Liam Neeson gets one in The Grey after threatening to beat someone for stealing money from the wallets of their dead compatriots.
  • Same thing happened in The Running Man with Ben's awesome threat to the evil game show host.
  • In X-Men: First Class, one sin was taken off for Wolverine's cameo and him saying "Go fuck yourself." to Charles Xavier and Erik.
  • In Rise of the Planet of the Apes, one sin was taken off when Caesar yells "NO!"
    • Made even better since the narrator references the sin-absolving quote from The Grey.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) gets one for casting a pre-fame Sam Rockwell.
  • Death Race 2000 gets six sins taken off. One for casting David Carradine, and five for two naked women fighting.
  • Batman Begins gets a sin retracted for Katie Holmes' nipples seen through her shirt. Later on, the retracted sin gets sinned again by Jeremy for her being annoying.
  • Carla Gugino's fanservice while playing Lucille in Sin City takes off four sins for the movie. Two for Gugino's breasts, and another two for Gugino's breasts while holding a gun. However, when it shows Gugino's ass, Jeremy sins the movie for "trying to distract [him] from [his] job."
    • Lucille's death is counted as a sin.
  • Toy Story has one knocked off for the use of shadows to signify the passage of time.
  • "Liam Neeson is finally killing people in this scene!"
  • One gets removed for the line about grade school in Fight Club. You know the one.
    Jeremy: Man...that line was so awesome we have to knock a sin off. (reverse ding sound plays partway) And by awesome I mean, disturbing as fuck.
  • Godzilla (2014) has a whopping total of eight removed (the most sins removed for a single video at the time): two for Godzilla's roar in Honolulu that Jeremy claims made Liam Neeson piss himself; one for the skydiving scene; and five more (no explanation why; the sins just tick down) for Godzilla using its atomic breath on a MUTO.
  • Kate Beckinsale gets three subtracted for the shot of her ass in tight leather pants in Underworld: Evolution, and the narrator insists that he should not have to explain why.
  • V for Vendetta has five removed for Evey's prostitute dress. They don't explain why; the sins just tick down.
  • Quicksilver's Time Stands Still bit in X-Men: Days of Future Past got five taken off, with the note that it would have been more had the movie actually featured more of him rather than dumping him from the plot after that scene.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2: After guest narrator Jon Bailey gave a sin for Peter and Gwen hiding in the maintenance closet, Peter pointing out how cliche the hiding spot is surprised Jon so much that he decided to retract the sin.
  • Edge of Tomorrow has two sins removed for Cage's reset montage and another two removed for Doug Liman directing the movie.
  • "Noah invents drunkenness. And wine. And nude beaches!" Two sins are taken off.
  • While How the Grinch Stole Christmas! did not actually get any sins removed, The Nostalgia Critic lets a race joke ("It's because I'm green, isn't it?!") slide for being genuinely funny.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy has six sins removed, all Groot-related: one for making a flower for a little kid and five for smiling at the screen after killing the second wave of soldiers with one move.
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) earns two sins taken off due to mustard-and-Parmesan Arrested Development reference.
  • Showgirls gets one removed for a lesbian kissing scene.
  • Goldfinger gets one removed for the opening song. The Product Placement sin is negated for the Aston Martin DB5 being a Cool Car.
  • American Beauty gets one removed for Lester's quitting his job scene, for representing what most employees want to tell their own bosses.

  • Big Hero 6 gets one removed for Baymax being adorable.
  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies gets one removed for Martin Freeman as Bilbo.
  • Hulk, of all things, gets one removed for Ang Lee's attempt at making an impressive visual presentation.
  • The Incredible Hulk gets one removed for doing what none of its successors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe did: put the post-credits-important scene at the end of the movie.
  • Pitch Perfect gets one removed for no reason (but the literal reason is Beca's cleavage is showing).
  • "As much as we're ripping on this movie out of pure joy, I must say that the thought of an evil ghost pretending to be a kid and using Carol Anne to prevent other ghosts from moving on is actually a really scary thought. And the "now let's get your daughter" line is awesome. I will remove 5 sins, because this movie deserves it. It does NOT deserve to be remade, because it's freaking awesome."
  • Taken 3 gets one taken off for the fact that the plush panda toy bought by Bryan in the opening is not seen again at the end.
  • The Bourne Identity gets two sins removed for Bourne disarming an assassin with a pen.
  • The Lost World: Jurassic Park gets two sins removed, both for cool shots. One was for the trailer dangling over the edge of the cliff. The other was the raptors silently stalking the hunters to the point of only being seen by grass moving.
  • Monsters, Inc. gets one removed for the combination of the Disney & Pixar logos being a blessedly brief 10 seconds. What makes this so awesome is that it happens at the very beginning of the video, making it the first ever CinemaSins video to start off with a negative number of sins. Jeremy is quick to note this. Another sin is removed at the end of the film when Sulley reunites with Boo, which touched Jeremy, who points out that he's "not made of stone."
  • Terminator 2: Judgment Day gets a sin removed for the reveal that the T-800 is a good guy, and five more sins removed for the special effect of the T-1000 passing through the metal bars (which he judges as better than what we see today).
  • Kingsman: The Secret Service gets five sins removed for the church fight scene.
    Jeremy: Good God, Matthew Vaughn, have you been peeking into my fantasy action scene database?
  • Mission: Impossible (1996) gets five sins removed due to Brian De Palma taking advantage of the anamorphic widescreen format and giving us a story in one shot. And since it was close to the start the sin counter drops to -3, making it the second time this happens in a sin video (the first was the sin video for Monsters, Inc.). Another five are removed for the "Mission: Impossible" Cable Drop scene during the CIA heist, meaning that the video has beaten Godzilla (2014) for most sins removed.
  • Face/Off gets a sin removed for the "Let's just kill each other." scene where the villain and the hero decide to... yeah, and shoot at each other through the mirror, complete with the mirror showing the two's reflections with their faces swapped, symbolizing their true identities.
  • Mission: Impossible III gets two sins removed for Philip Seymour Hoffman as Davian.
  • Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol gets three sins removed, two for the break-in at the Kremlin, and one for the view from the Burj Khalifa in IMAX.
  • The Incredibles gets two sins removed, one for Elastigirl taking out the bad guys while stuck between several doors, and another one for Dash's laugh upon realizing he can run on water; the latter sin was removed without any explanation.
  • Thunderball gets three sins removed. The first is for an Establishing Shot that doesn't use an obvious landmark or text on-screen to tell the viewer where the scene is set in. The second sin is removed for Ken Adam's production design after a cool interior shot of the SPECTRE conference room. The third is a funny moment where a nude Fiona Volpe asks Bond for something to wear, and he gives her a pair of high heels.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End gets a sin absolved because of how funny the scene where the dying Norrington stabs Davy Jones in the shoulder is.
  • The Sixth Sense gets seven sins removed in total. The first is for the "forwards-backwards game," which they say is a good way to both establish exposition and Character Development at the same time. It also gets a sin removed for Cole's "I see dead people" line, since the movie has been interesting enough to keep the viewer engaged without knowing that. Finally, five sins are taken off for The Reveal that Malcom has been dead the whole time because of how well the twist was done. This review shows that this was the reason people liked M. Night Shyamalan's twist.
  • The Divergent Series: Insurgent gets a sin taken off for killing off Jai Courtney's character.
  • How to Train Your Dragon has five sins removed in total. First, it gets three sins removed for how good the movie looks. And another "I'm not made of stone" moment from Jeremy over how cute Toothless is gets another sin removed. Finally, the movie gets a sin removed for Toothless being "all business," yet still showing a bond with Hiccup.
  • Interstellar gets multiple sins taken off for the producers having very accurate science play into the plot. Several times, Jeremy adds a sin for how ridiculous something sounds, but Neil deGrasse Tyson says that it's scientifically accurate, so the sin is immediately removed. It also gets a sin removed for Matthew McConaughey's acting in a scene where he watches his daughter grow up due to the time difference between planets. It gets another sin removed when Tyson points out half of the genius level scientists are women. And another for how awesome the sequence was when Cooper successfully docks with the violently spinning Endurance. How many sins in total? Eleven!
    • While one of the rules of CinemaSins is that "books don't matter", he still removes a sin for Tyson telling people to go look at the Kip Thorne book The Science Of "Interstellar" for a more detailed (and user-friendly) look at the physics of the film, because "who are we to argue with Neil deGrasse Tyson?"
  • WALL•E starts with five sins removed right off the bat because its visuals, humorous and exciting storytelling kicked CinemaSins' ass in the first half. In fact, the movie is so anti-CinemaSins (since it is anti-"what other movies do") that Jeremy says that they'll remove three sins, but the counter takes off five.
    • It also gets three additional sins removed: one for using visuals to show WALL•E switching tires (while other movies would have a lame wisecrack, particularly DreamWorks), one for the movie's ballsy satire, and a third one for EVE's reaction after WALL•E survives the exploding escape pod.
  • Mad Max: Fury Road has a total of nine sins removed. It first gets a sin taken off for the gorgeous look, then two more sins taken off when it looks like Max will escape the Warboys via a crane hook in the beginning, but doesn't, while praising George Miller for the anti ex machinas. It also gets a sin removed for the Doof Warrior shooting flames out of his guitar (the sin was removed automatically without explanation), two sins taken off for the chase scene through the canyon with the bike gang, and two sins removed for incorporating the Doof Warrior into the action during the final chase. One final sin is removed for a major studio making a film that impressed the guys at CinemaSins so much.
  • The Ring gets a sin removed for a properly executed Jump Scare that actually scared Jeremy.
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron gets a sin removed for the Vision giving Thor his hammer, which Jeremy describes as awesome.
  • Without saying a word, Jeremy removes one sin for Marty getting the hoverboard. And later, despite the counter not counting it, Jeremy removes another sin because of the foreshadowing and cohesionnote  that was created due to Back to the Future Part II and Back to the Future Part III being filmed at the same time. And later later, he removes one more for the scene of Part 2!Marty sneaking past Part 1!Marty in the parking lot... again, in spite of the counter not counting it. note 
    • Say what you want about the circumstances, but Jeremy adds a sin for the filmmakers reusing footage of George at the dance without Crispin Glover's permission,note  "rightfully [leading] to a successful lawsuit and new regulations".
    • The film got a conditional 20 sins removed, predicated on the movie's prediction of the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series in 2015 pans out. The Cubs ultimately didn't even make it to the World Series, but a separate sin counter appeared showing what the sin count would be if they had won. (The Cubs eventually won the World Series just one year later.)
  • It Follows gets two off. One for the Emerging from the Shadows Jump Scare, and the other for having Meaningful Background Events.
  • Scream gets one sin off for its Deconstructive Parody nature leading the viewer to believe that Billy isn't one of the killers, another sin off for Randy telling the Halloween character Jamie to run while he should be looking out for Ghostface, and one more for pulling off the dual killer twist.
  • Casino Royale (2006) gets a sin taken off for Bond subverting his usual martini order:
    Bartender: Shaken or stirred?
    Bond: Do I look like I give a damn?
  • Inside Out has four knocked off: Two for a return to form for Pixar following their downfall due to reliance on sequels, another for the 'girl alert' scene (Jeremy found the scene so funny, he recorded his actual laughter when he first saw it), and the last taken off for the creative end credits (some might miss this because they didn't use the 'reversed' sin sound effect normally used when taking off a sin).
  • Terminator Genisys gets one sin taken off for J. K. Simmons and his "Goddamn time-travelling robots!" line delivery.
  • Rocky IV gets a sin taken off without comment for Ivan Drago's "I must break you" line.
  • Of course, the Star Wars saga gets to have some sins removed.
    • A New Hope gets 5 sins taken off for Obi-Wan's death since he knew that he was losing and if he kept fighting Luke would stick around. Another 5 sins are taken off because of how well executed the scene of Luke blowing up the Death Star is.
    • The Empire Strikes Back gets 4 sins taken off, most of them without a single word spoken. One sin is removed for Han's "See You in Hell" line, and another is for Han responding with "I know" to Leia's "I love you". Two more are removed for Yoda's "Do or do not, there is no try" and "That is why you fail." As the commentary says, "Pimp. I'm taking a sin off for that, too. Yoda is too badass."
    • Return of the Jedi has 8 sins removed. Five sins were removed for Princess Leia's gold bikini with no explanation and the sins just ticking down. It also has one more sin removed for how cute Wicket the Ewok is (no matter what the haters say) and 2 more sins removed for Vader killing the Emperor.
    • The Phantom Menace actually has 5 sins removed, and is the only film from the prequel trilogy to even have any sins removed. 2 sins were removed because pod-racing is badass and 3 more are removed before the final battle because Darth Maul is an underused badass and "Duel of the Fates" is an amazing soundtrack.
    • The Force Awakens gets a total of ten sins removed. Two are removed for Kylo Ren stopping a blaster bolt, one for Rey's maneuver to destroy the last TIE fighter, three for BB-8 giving a thumbs-up with his blow torch, one for Rey using her Jedi powers for the first time, and three for her pulling the lightsaber out of the snow to her hand to duel Kylo Ren.
    • Rogue One gets five sins removed: One for Alan Tudyk as K-2SO, one for Donnie Yen as Chirrut Îmwe, and three for the badass scene of Vader killing a bunch of dudes in the hallway (even though a sin was given for it being inconsistent with Vader's style of combat from the original trilogy).
    • The Last Jedi gets eight sins removed: Two for the Millennium Falcon having the balls to drop off Rey's pod in front of the First Order's fleet, one for Kylo Ren and Rey fighting Snoke's guards being an excellent example of an action scene, and finally five sins for Holdo's Heroic Sacrifice, aptly stated as "Holy. F*ck."
    • Solo gets two sins removed: One for Alden Ehrenreich managing to keep the feel of Han Solo even though he doesn't look or sound like him, and one for Chewie smashing a Kessel mine guard into the ceiling.
    • The Rise of Skywalker gets five sins removed: One for Rey shooting a ship out of the sky with lightning, one for Palpatine taking on a huge fleet of ships by himself, and three for the ending being great (though many people in the comments took offense to that one in particular).
  • Toy Story 2 gets four sins removed. Two are removed (without any explanation) for a Jurassic Park Shout-Out with Rex, and two are removed for the "When She Loved Me" montage, which tugged at Jeremy's heartstrings. The sin for Buzz managing to open a car trunk is also negated for the detailed key scratches.
  • The Lion King gets three sins removed as early as "Nants Ingonyama" for being powerful and dramatic, resulting in it briefly having negative sins, the fourth film to do so. Five more sins are removed for how hardcore Mufasa's death was for a kids movie, making for a total of eight absolved sins.
  • Ant-Man gets one sin removed for the first tip montage with Luis because it seems like just the kind of thing that Edgar Wright would have done before he was replaced as director.
  • Snowpiercer gets seven sins removed. Two are for the scene where Curtis reveals the guards don't have bullets by putting the gun against his own head and pulling the trigger, and five for the action scene in the glass hallway.
  • San Andreas gets a single sin removed early for not including the Golden Gate Bridge in a sweeping establishing shot of San Francisco, as many movies set in San Francisco do, especially ones where the bridge is destroyed. However, Jeremy remarks that he will probably sin it back ten-fold if it's destroyed later. The bridge eventually gets destroyed by a tsunami. And ten sins were added.
  • Kung Fu Panda gets a sin removed for Kung Fu Dumpling Hockey!
  • Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation gets a total of 12 sins removed. First five sins get removed for the opening scene where Ethan hangs onto the side of a lifting plane. Later five more sins get knocked off for the opera scene in general, though Jeremy remarks that he would have taken five sins off for the shot of Ilsa aiming her rifle in a gala dress alone. The opera scene earns another sin knocked off for its clever resolution where Ethan shoots the target non-fatally to throw off the Syndicate's plan, with Jeremy remarking that he "likes when things are smart". Yet another sin is deducted for the underwater scene, which Jeremy calls one of the tensest action scenes of the year.
  • Superman II gets a sin removed for Terence Stamp as Zod.
  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding gets a sin removed because "immigrant parents are awesome".
  • Batman (1989) gets a sin removed for Jack Nicholson as the The Joker.
  • Batman Returns has a sin removed for Catwoman's introductory scene.
  • The Martian gets two sins off from, of course, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Both of them involve the plot being solved not by hope, faith, or emotion, but by sciencing the shit out of it.
  • CinemaSins parodied their way of removing sins for good things in movies for April Fools' Day 2016, when they did the legendarily So Bad, It's Good film Troll 2. Jeremy just kept knocking off increasingly high numbers of sins for the slightest good bit, and things that normally got a sin got one removed. The grand total was -10000, until Jeremy sinned all of them back for the Shoot the Shaggy Dog ending. Though he still gives a sin for one "That's Racist" moment.
  • The Jungle Book gets a sin removed at the very end because its closing credits are only about forty seconds long.
  • The Wicker Man (2006) gets 5 sins removed for Nicolas Cage knocking out some of the women who have been jerking him around all movie. However, Jeremy immediately adds 50 sins for violence towards women.
  • Despite panning The Good Dinosaur for its weak plot and stealing elements from other Disney movies, Jeremy knocks off two sins at different points for its high-quality animation, specifically noting how real the water looks in the first removed sin.
  • Cars has one sin removed for the "Our Town" montage, where James Taylor sings wistfully about the past. When the film gets to this scene, Jeremy feels duty-bound to remove a sin no matter what else is going on.
  • Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan gets seven sins off. Five are removed for Spock's Heroic Sacrifice, and the other two for the "Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most human." line.
  • The Revenant gets three sins off. Two are removed for the action scenes (which Jeremy considers to be much better than superhero movie action scenes in recent years, although in the second case, he then immediately adds a sin back for the implausibility of Glass surviving one of those action sequences) and one is removed for the gorgeous cinematography.
  • Despite Jeremy's rather low opinion of it, A Bug's Life gets one sin off for the "murder mural" during the kids' play that they present for the circus bugs.
  • Jaws gets a total of ten sins removed. Five are knocked off in the very beginning because the CinemaSins crew are such assholes for choosing to sin a movie that great, starting the tally on a negative count. Another five are removed later in the movie for the suspenseful direction when Quint and Hooper are fishing for the shark.
  • Alien gets a total of ten sins removed. First, five sins are removed after the 20th Century Fox logo simply for being one of the best horror movies ever. Another five sins get removed for the iconic scene where the baby alien bursts out of Kane, especially since the cast had no idea what was coming.
  • The Hateful Eight gets five sins removed the moment Ennio Morricone's credit comes on screen. Jeremy doesn't even explain, he simply states "I have no choice." Later on, when an anachronistic pop song is played instead of Morricone's score, three sins are added for the waste of talent.
  • Zootopia gets one sin removed for managing to make Jeremy laugh within four minutes. Jeremy also retracts a sin for some legitimately clever animal pun names for the bands on Judy's iPod, but immediately gives one back for the player not being a smartphone.
  • The Bourne Ultimatum gets 4 sins removed. Three are removed for the amazeballs scene where Bourne is trying to maneuver the journalist to safety by talking to him on his mobile, while periodically beating up mooks. Another one is removed for the fight between Desh and Bourne.
  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice gets 5 sins removed. Two sins are removed for Bruce Wayne running into the fray while everybody else panics. Another three sins are removed for the warehouse fight, despite not being a fan of the movie.
    • The Ultimate Edition removes 5 more sins: one for expanding on the bat brandings, one for explaining how Superman didn't see the Senate bomb, one for Batman's and Alfred's romantic undertones, one for the scene of Lex talking to Steppenwolf explaining "He's hungry.", and one for Bruce paying for Clark's funeral.
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 has three sins removed for visuals even more impressive than the original.
  • I Am Legend, much like WALL•E, gets a sin off for being able to invest Jeremy in its plot without a single line of dialogue in the first part of the movie.
  • Unbreakable gets six sins removed. One was for the cinematography of David in the background while the body in front of him bleeds out, one was for the scene when David discovers he has powers, one was for James Newton Howard's score, and three were simply because the movie told a story instead of mugging Shyamalan's face everywhere.
  • Blade gets a sin off for Blade's humorous reaction to getting shot by a cop.
  • Citizen Kane gets 14 sins removed overall. Five sins are removed right off the bat, accompanied by an acknowledgement that people are going to hate them for sinning such a classic film. Nine sins were also removed for innovative camera work and cool shots:
  • Even though Jeremy wasn't a fan of this, The Jungle Book (2016) gets a sin off for the "Bare Necessities" musical number.
  • Shrek gets a sin removed for the scene were Fiona removes the arrow from Shrek's butt, with Jeremy finding Shrek's delayed "Ow" Actually Pretty Funny.
  • Captain America: Civil War gets 6 sins removed overall: one for Black Panther being a badass, three for Steve keeping a helicopter from lifting off through his body strength alone, one for getting the right actor to play Spider-Man, and one for Paul Rudd being a national treasure.
  • Gone Girl gets a sin off for a subtle dig at Nick's cluelessness by having him play the board game "Life" incorrectly.
  • The Conjuring 2 gets a sin off for how well-shot the movie was, propelled by one particularly well-executed Epic Tracking Shot that Jeremy describes as being above the standard the movie has set.
  • Jack Reacher gets a sin removed for the opening of the movie because the first 8 minutes have no spoken words OR narration and instead set the tone with the awesome POV through the scope of the rifle.
  • Quicksilver's Time Stands Still bit results in 3 more sins removed in X-Men: Apocalypse, especially impressive considering the video description outright states they didn't like the movie.
  • Contact gets three sins off. One is for the shot of Ellie running to get her dad's medicine without showing the camera in the bathroom mirror, one for Hadden saying "Wanna take a ride?", and one for the suspense of the launch scene of the pod.
  • I, Robot gets two sins off for Alan Tudyk as Sonny.
  • Krampus gets a sin off for its ending.
  • Finding Dory gets a sin off for its Creative Closing Credits.
  • The Legend of Tarzan gets a sin off for Djimon Hounsou as Chief Mbonga because he Took the Bad Film Seriously.
  • Star Trek Beyond gets 8 sins off: two for the super tiny alien attacking Kirk being hilarious, one for treating Leonard Nimoy's death with restraint and grace, one for Jaylah being the breath of fresh air the new series needed, one for Spock's humorous line in the scene where everyone (including Spock) realizes Uhura's necklace doubles as a tracking device, one for Sulu's impressed and mystified face after he gets the ship to fly, one for the inventive and smart way used to kill the swarm ships, and a final one for the sped-up construction of the new Enterprise being awesome.
    • Especially surprising because the majority of movies with many sins removed were "five off for this one cool moment" type things. In this movie, the most removed at once was two. A channel devoted to making fun of movies just had to say "but that was awesome, and this was awesome, and that was so cool," over and over and over!
  • Mission: Impossible – Fallout gets a total of 11 sins off: one for Beirut being identified only with the city (thus averting the "in case you confused it with" Running Gag), three for Christopher McQuarrie's amazing camera and stunt work during the HALO jump into Paris, one for the scene depicting Benji and Lane swapping places, five for the camera and stunt work of Ethan's rooftop chase through London, and one for the Funny Background Event of Ethan dropping a Mook out of a helicopter while chasing Walker\Lark sending Jeremy into a laughing fit.
  • Toy Story 3 gets 7 sins off: one for making him feel nostalgia for when he was a kid, one for the shot in the daycare breaking his brain with the amount of unique details to scrutinize and five for the famously tear-jerking ending.
  • Home Alone gets 4 sins off: two for namedropping Micro Machines (an inspiration for Cinema Sins), one for the excellent use of foreshadowing of Kevin's trap implements, and one for John Williams' score.
  • Deadpool (2016) got a whole bonus round of sin removals, all centered on Deadpool doing Cinema Sins's job and being awesome. 28 sins were removed in total.
  • The LEGO Movie got a total of 25 sins removed. First two for Emmett's freezing mid-sentence when he first sees Wyldstyle, one for the hilarious detail of Vitruvius drinking from a cup on the floating double decker couch, one for Vitruvius dying the very second he's about to tell Emmett something that will "change the course of history", one for the scene where Benny enthusiastically puts together a spaceship, and a staggering 20 sins because of Emmett moving around on his own implying that the whole story taking place, while at least based on the kid's imagination, might actually be to some degree real.
  • John Wick has a sins video only 11 minutes long and gets 2 sins removed. One sin is removed for John's dog being adorable. The other one is removed for the quality of John's gear up for a fight scene.
  • The Accountant gets a sin removed for showing the Chicago skyline without the on-screen text "Chicago, Illinois, USA" like on other movies. Jeremy also admits having a hard time finding sins for the movie.
  • The Cabin in the Woods gets ten sins removed. First one is removed for the sudden appearance of the title in the intro. Another is removed because the monster board references the Deadites from the Evil Dead trilogy. Three more are removed for the scene where the Japanese schoolgirls defeat the ghost that's attacking them. Five whole sins are removed for the darkly humorous scene where the monsters all escape from the elevators and mow down the staff, which Jeremy describes as one of the best scenes of the decade.
  • Up gets six sins removed. Five sins are removed for the brilliant montage of Carl and Ellie's life up to Ellie's funeral, which reminded Jeremy of the original Pixar shorts and made him cry a little. Another sin is removed for the adorable and hilarious introduction to Dug.
  • Beauty and the Beast has six sins taken off for its beautiful animation. Three sins are removed because "Be Our Guest" is one of the greatest Disney musical numbers of all time; Jeremy is smiling so much he has to remove them. Another three are removed for the ballroom dancing scene because of how amazing the camera technique for an animated film from 1991 is!
  • 2 Fast 2 Furious gets three sins removed for Eva Mendes' sunbathing scene and the reason is just that she exists. This is notable because so far it's the only movie in the The Fast and the Furious franchise to get sins taken off for any reason.
  • The film adaptation of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children gets a sin removed for immediately getting Jake into counseling after the death of a loved one.
  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them gets two sins removed. One for the physical comedy during the scene with Newt and the Niffler in the jewelry shop, made even funnier by not having a goofy musical accompaniment. The other sin is removed for Dan Foglernote  being the best thing about the movie and especially for his scene with the Giggle Water.
  • Moana gets three sins taken off at different parts for Alan Tudyk as Heihei the chicken. It also would have gotten a sin off for "How Far I'll Go", but it was negated by having a pop song version of it in the end credits.
  • Doctor Strange (2016) has four taken off. One is removed for the hilarious scene of Strange's cape kicking a mook's ass, one for the slow-motion lightning in the astral protection talk between Strange and the Ancient One, and two for the clever way Strange beats Dormammu, which Jeremy calls the best scene of 2016. ("Dormammu, I've come to bargain.")
  • Passengers (2016) gets a sin off for Gus' "Still, damn." line echoing Jeremy's sentiments about the central conflict.
  • Aliens gets five sins removed. One sin is taken off for the awesome mech suits. Another one is removed for Bill Paxton's portrayal of Hudson. Finally 3 sins are removed for the iconic "get away from her, you bitch" line without any comment from Jeremy!
  • Split gets 2.5 sins off for James McAvoy as three of Kevin's personalities (1 for Dennis, 1 for Patricia, and 0.5 for Hedwig).
  • Logan gets eight sins off - six for the brutal action, (two for Laura's attack on the Reavers, plus Logan's Berserker Rage in the finale and one for the hotel room massacre, plus Logan's first fight with X-24, ) and two for Dafne Keen as Laura.
  • The Transformers: The Movie gets a sin off for having the balls to kill off Optimus Prime.
  • Get Out (2017) gets eleven sins off: one sin for racial subtext in the 'asshole cop' scene, one sin for subtle foreshadowing, three sins for Daniel Kaluuya (as Chris), Catherine Keener (as Missy), and Jordan Peele (the director) for the Sunken Place scene, one sin for subverting the racist bad guy trope, one sin for Lil Rel Howery as Rod, three sins for subtle details from Chris' backstory influencing Rod, and one sin for Rose smiling while being suffocated.
  • Despicable Me gets a sin removed for Agnes being adorable.
  • Despicable Me 2 gets three sins removed for the song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams. Only one of those sins is removed for the actual song though.
