YMMV / Diamanda Hagan

Go To

  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • Her Strange Fruit Salad in the Charles Lynch Inn from her review of Sunset Heights.
    • Her crossover with Spoony, which she wrote, not only is your average "Hagan-reviews-a-Christian-Movie" hijinx, but also has Spoony not only being misogynistic towards her but also using slurs with gay abandon.
    • The fact that a review of a film called Gayniggers From Out of Space even got posted on the site is probably down to this. Even Diamanda was amazed they let her do it.
  • Designated Hero:
    • Points out the protagonists in Bone Kickers are responsible for numerous murders and break many laws while getting away scot free.
    • She also sarcastically says "our hero" during Emmanuelle 4 when Emmanuelle breaks into a man's house and begins to masturbate over his sleeping body.
      Diamanda: At least when Shinji Ikari did it it was funny.
    • Repeatedly calls out both the Designated Hero and Designated Villain in Harlem rides the range.
  • Ear Worm:
    • Her first title theme was Lecher Bitch by The Genitorturers.
    • George Harrison's Dream Away which she uses as title theme for her guide to classic Doctor Who.
    • The Sweet's Ballroom Blitz, as used for the theme to Twatty New Who.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Her comparison of Spoony to the lead of Schizophreniac The Whore Mangler takes on slightly different connotations when you consider the events that cost Spoony his job at Channel Awesome.
  • Ho Yay:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • She says in a review that she watches Game of Thrones and supports Stannis. Considering he had his daughter burned alive as a sacrifice, this ends up making it hilarious considering Hagan's sociopathic nature.
    • In her Freaks review she says the circus strongman is a bit of a dick who'd totally be gay if the film was made today. Fast forward to Dell from American Horror Story...
    • Alistair's boyfriend's name being Basil is hilarious considering the Doctor jokingly saying his name is Basil in "The Zygon Inversion".
    • Her montage of men saying 'yes I'm stupid' includes (at the time a gag) a pre-coming-out JesuOtaku
  • Jerkass Woobie: "I'm Diamanda Hagan ... and I have to live with that every day."
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Her departure from Channel Awesome on March 25, 2018.
    • The description for her re-uploaded versions of Poultrygeist and Zombeak, following the posthumous revelations about JewWario:
    Because of what came to light in April 2018 I've removed comments, the only reasons the video is still here at all is because that'd be like denying I made it. If you watch I hope you enjoy it so the sum total of human happiness can be increased a bit. I, however, never want to see it ever again. Any ads you get aren't benefiting me, I don't want that money.
    • Even worse - in the description for Zombeak she names Justin as her favourite collaborator to work with. Ouch.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: When reviewing Siege, she complains about how the movie started off with the cinematic gold of would-be fascists holding a gay bar at gunpoint, only for the customers to revolt... only to turn into a stock "home invasion" thriller, with the lone survivor of the gay bar unconscious for a good chunk of the remaining movie.
  • Uncanny Valley: Fenella Pritchard, the villain from the Urban Gothic episode "Pineapple Chunks," in both forms
  • The Woobie:
    • You know how Diamanda is a loud outspoken megalomaniac who routinely abuses her faceless minions in gruesome ways? Well Nina is nothing like that. And it just makes you want to hug her...
    • Linkara feels this way about Ada in Zsazsa Zaturrnah. Her father tries to drown her for being transgender, her niece constantly misgenders her, and her boyfriend breaks up with her because his family doesn't approve of her being gay/transgender/a different religion (and right after she gave him a lot of money to help support his schooling, too).
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: A lot of people who first see her, and a lot of commenters on TGWTG - the majority of whom are horribly insulting about it - can't immediately tell if Diamanda is a man or a Butch Lesbian. For the record, she's the latter. This was lampshaded in her review of Project Million, which she starred in.
    Diamanda: Honestly, I can't tell if that's supposed to be a man or a woman. I mean, they're tall and have a hunchback, but they have tits. Well, their tits look like a herd of gerbils clustering together for warmth.
