  • Approval of God:
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Adam's managed to amass a very deep, detailed knowledge on the technical aspects of movies despite not going to film school. Instead, he says he got most of his knowledge from watching DVD Commentaries growing up.
  • Colbert Bump:
    • Gave one to the now-infamous Cool Cat series, to the point where he even inspired the creator to recut the first film.
      • Can also be considered an Approval of God, as Savage himself commented on the video and liked the criticisms and thanked Adam for buying his DVD. His only complaints were on how Adam made Cool Cat look like a pedophile. (However, this was before Savage went on a militant streak against other YouTubers for criticizing his film, so his earlier approval probably doesn't count for much anymore.)
    • Let's be honest: he (and RedLetterMedia) helped garner Neil Breen a larger cult fanbase for his So Bad, It's Good movies.
  • Schedule Slip:
    • His long-form analysis of Synecdoche, New York last updated with a part 5, and there hasn't been another part for several years. Aside from the legendary status a hypothetical part 6 has now gained among his fans, Charlie Kaufman himself said he was waiting for additional parts when Adam interviewed him for the release of Anomalisa. Adam later clarified that he purposely is delaying the next part to work on other projects.
    • Advertisement:
    • The debut full-length album of An Unkindness was in the works for quite some time, with many release dates coming and going. He did manage to ultimately subvert this, as the album saw release in September 2020.
    • His review of The Lion King (2019) has been constantly pushed back due to the amount of material he kept finding. He's cited in livestreams that one of the big factors was the amount of research he ended up doing on Kimba the White Lion; he had originally wanted to make a throwaway Kimba joke in the review, but quickly discovered how wrong the Common Knowledge was of the same and ended up making a nearly two-and-a-half hour video just to debunk any claims about it.
  • Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things: Adam has stated this to be a reason why he hasn't updated his Synecdoche, New York series. He wants to work on other projects between videos, and so anytime someone asks about his video series, Adam flat out states he is purposely going to delay the series just because he gets asked it so often.
