This review contains examples of:

  • Call-Back: When The Critic gets annoyed at the "Melvin, Brother of the Joker" theme song, he demands something else play instead, which prompts the Doug theme to play. This causes The Critic to shoot the camera. Doug first expressed his hatred for that theme song in his Nick Toons review.
  • Department of Redundancy Department:
    Critic: "That wasn't Art Carney in Last Action Hero!" Now some of you might not even know what I am talking about. First of all, he was in Last Action Hero, wasn't he? He was the guy that dies before he gets blown up. Little redundant, but whatever.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: The Critic mercilessly beats Mike Ellis just for uploading the wrong version of the Last Action Hero review.
  • Fee Fi Faux Pas: In the TMNT review, the Critic said that Splinter sounded like Mr. Miyagi if he smoked a bunch of Marlboros. The actor who played Splinter, Mako, died of esophageal cancer. When the Critic showed the clip from that episode, he tugged at his tie and chucked nervously.

  • Old Shame: Invoked: When The Critic discusseed #9, he mentioned that the reason for the eyeliner was due to a one-time video that shall remain nameless. After this, the theme song to "Melvin, Brother of the Joker" played, and The Critic repeatedly told it to shut up.
  • Self-Deprecation: The whole video, but in particular when he proclaims, "I suck!" after realizing he spelled "Nostalgia Critic" wrong.
  • Sure, Let's Go with That: Critic briefly mentions how some of his viewers thought the spelling mistake at the end of his review of A Kid in King Arthur's Court was intentional, as part of a joke about him repeatedly hitting himself in the head with a heavy book to try and forget the movie's existence. He awkwardly and unconvincingly says they were right.
  • What Could Have Been: Invoked: The Critic could've used a Mystery Science Theater 3000 reference had he known the object in Barb Wire was a forklift, not a bulldozer.

  • You Make Me Sic: The basis of Fuck-up #2.
