Go To

  • Return to Oz:

    • While she's talking about Dorothy seeming to age in reverse, she gets distracted by Fairuza Balk's amazing hair.
    • Advertisement:
    • While she's terrified of Mrs Wilson, she has to keep pointing out that her black dress is amazing.
    • She loves Belina the chicken, saying she's better than all the other famous chickens, but then she realizes she can't think of any.
    • Her description of the Wheelers: "they're like loud flamboyant Slender Mans on rollerskates!"
    • Admitting her mom didn't even let her watch Rugrats as a kid, so this movie would have scared her to death.
    • At the end, she says she can't imagine watching this as a kid, and then has a Eureka Moment of that being the reason why Doug and Rob are so messed up.
  • Jurassic Park:
    • Her adorably bad Perverse Sexual Lust-tinged impression of Jeff Goldblum.

    • Advertisement:
    • Drinking her alcohol in embarrassment after admitting she's never seen the original movie, and has only watched the third.
    • Her first response to the movie (other than it was awesome) was to be pleased she finally got the Alan joke from the Critic review.

    • Her impression of a vegan dinosaur, it's like a Valley Girl yuppie mom with a few dino screeches.
    • She's confused about how a mosquito could eat through a dinosaur's skin, and says that a mosquito could eat her skin, "because it's soft". The facial expression makes it funnier.
  • The Secret of NIMH:
    • She opens the review like most reviews, but then discovers some hair is out of place.
      Tamara: [starting again] Hi I'm Tamara Chambers and I fixed my hair!
    • Her cat Wendy comes in because according to human-mommy, "she's jealous, she wants to be the new star".
    • She loves Timmy, and promises to flip the fuck out if he dies. She doesn't know what she'll flip, but she'll flip something. Then she flips some string cheese.
    • Ike comes in again, and she's like "see what the internet can do? We're best friends and I won't push you out of frame at all" while stroking him.

  • The Fifth Element:
    • Her great thirst for both Milla Jovovich and Bruce Willis.
    • She asks Taylor Swift to dye her hair orange and dress up like Leeloo in a video. Granted, she's done similar in "Bad Blood", but the true Leeloo reference was in the form of another artist in a cameo.
    • It says in her notes to do the "brushing money" meme, but all she has is a one dollar bill and some pennies that scares her cat when she throws them on the floor.
    • All the takes with her in the beard.

    • There's an unintentional Running Gag of car alarms going off, and instead of getting irritated or editing the video, she puts a graphic of a car going across the screen for the duration of the alarm, and once, when it stops and immediately comes back on, the car backs up onto the screen again after having just left. After a few of these, she goes offscreen and comes back with a knife, having "dealt" with them, and later realizes it's not the best idea to have a knife on her sofa.
    • When Tamara is weirded out by the boss turning up in Veronica's shower, Doug randomly appears as a voice cameo in her shower, and when she's disturbed, he says it was either her shower or Malcolm's. What makes it better is she complains he's so predictable and why is she even surprised.

    • She has Star Wars shot glasses.
    • When she summarizes Doc Brown getting chased by a bear, she deadpans "that's the first time I've ever had to say that sentence".
    • The Imagine Spot with old Tamara (plus beard) finishing The Land Before Time (and yes she has seen all the movies) and then deciding to watch anime.
