Awesome / Some Jerk with a Camera

Go To

  • The speech he gives in his ''Step by Step Goes to Disney World'' review when Flash performs in the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, one of the park's most dangerous shows a stunt member can perform. To give you an idea, it took the ride almost 20 years note  for a stunt member to die from an accident, albeit during a rehearsal and not the actual show. For an unrehearsed amateur like Flash to perform the show flawlessly just goes to show you; don't piss the man off.
  • The ending to Season One where he and his friends destroy It's a Small World.
    • Before that, he rants about the notion that the ride is a "prayer for peace." He concedes that since the ride was made to benefit UNICEF, he couldn't quite fault the Imagineers' intentions. That is, until he finds out that the Sherman brothers wanted to donate the song's proceeds to charity, but Walt Disney refused because he believed they should keep the money.
    Jerk: You're telling me Walt cared more about his already rich songwriter friends getting paid for this shit when the royalties could have gone to children in need?! FUCK! Now I really hate this goddamn ride!
    Jerk: STOP SAYING THAT! You know what? No more calls! We have a winner! That is the most pretentious thing I've ever heard! If Lady Gaga, Morrissey, and Bono all wrote an Oscar acceptance speech for Sean Penn, it wouldn't be one-tenth as pretentious as "It's a Small World is a prayer for peace!"
  • His review of Escape from Tomorrow, where he tears apart the movie for its sheer ineptitude.
    • Even in his Disneyland-hating funk, Jerk still points out the inaccuracies of the film's portrayal of the park, like in his "ABC Goes to Walt Disney World" retrospective.
    • Despite his hatred for the movie, he still gives props to Roy Abramsohn, who played Jim, for doing a decent job with the script he was given. This is followed up with a recorded Shout-Out from him at the film's premiere.

    • Trevor McCune (who played the valet during the film's final scene) showing up at the end not only to give Jerk his view on the film's ending, but telling him about his experience when filming his scene.
    • He calls out the producers' hypocrisy for trying to get his review removed from Youtube while trying to invoke the Streisand Effect for publicity. He also points out that Disney itself has never tried to get any of his videos removed from Youtube.
    • He finds a clever bit of Fridge Logic: Of all the bad things that happen in the movie, very few if any are actually Disney's fault. They had nothing to do with the cat flu, the Emu Woman was rightly fired after killing a park guest, the hotel staff promptly cleaned up the bathroom where Jim died, and even gave Elliot memories of the Buzz Lightyear ride he wasn't able to ride earlier in the film.

    • A rather Badass Boast occurs when Jerk talks about how much of the film's praise came from it filming in Disneyland without Disney noticing and how ballsy it was for them to do so.
    Jerk (who's been doing that exact same shit for five years at this point): Guess what, not impressed.
  • In their review of The Haunted Mansion, Jerk, Count Jackula, and Horror Guru do an epic take down of the When You Coming Home, Dad? trope that was rampant in family films made during The '90s and the Turn of the Millennium. To the tune of Cat's in the Cradle by Harry Chapin.
    • Jerk TEARS into the film's ending, where all 999 happy haunts ascend to Heaven, saying that the ghosts that inhabit the Haunted Mansion LOVE haunting the place and the idea of a Haunted Mansion that's no longer haunted is seen as a BAD ending for fans of the ride.
  • One small one for Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood: This is the only Universal Studios review that Jerk opens with "To all who come to this happy place, welcome." In all his other Universal reviews, he describes it as a "reasonably content place."
  • "Some Jerk Visits Knott's Berry Farm" spends quite a bit of time with the theme park's actors, who never break character and show that they are masters of Improv.
  • In his "One Movie Later" for Christopher Robin, Tony mentions that he ran into Chris Bergoch, one of the writers for The Florida Project, who praised his review.
  • His video on the removal of the wench auction scene from Pirates of the Caribbean. While he gives those who disagree with him a fair shake, he expertly dismantles the arguments against the change.

How well does it match the trope?
