Jerkass Has a Point: Jesus in the Spider-Man 3 review. While he shows absolutely no sympathy for Eddie, he does tell him that angsting and killing Peter will not change the fact that Gwen was never interested in him in the first place.
He also points out that there are plenty of other women on the planet for Eddie to date if he wishes. His anger-fueled reaction to a completely pointless and obnoxious recreation of the Budweiser "Whassup? In his Norm of the North review, he points out that the characters pointing out the ridiculousness of the film doesn't make it any less ridiculous.
Like Is, Like, a Comma: In-Universe ; in his Twilight: In this example, James Nguyen replicating iconic scenes and elements from the first movie makes it hard to tell which scenes are meant to be funny and which ones are unintentionally funny, killing the joke.
Occasionally, he would drop subtle references to heavy metal songs in his reviews and even referred to Krull as the "most metal movie" he's ever reviewed. Sean's dad is a Navy veteran. In-Universe ; Smeghead uses "it's a dream, it's not supposed to make sense" throughout the Sucker Punch review to cope with the more nonsensical parts of the film.
At one point, he has a Freudian Slip moment, accidentally says "lazy writing" instead of "a dream", and quickly corrects himself. In his Breaking Dawn - Part 1 review, he tries to add excitement to a padding scene where Bella gets her wedding makeup applied by replacing all audio with the Indiana Jones theme. In Birdemicthe hilariously bewigged nature nut becomes "Wiggy McTreehugger".

When a character gets into a predicament that would certainly result in their death, Smeghead often says something along the lines of " Character dies, the end! Episode 97 is a quick overview of Sean's thoughts on Found Footage films in general. The Fantastic Four Review: Invoked when he gives James Nguyen props for taking the high road and not doing this when Birdemic became infamous for being So Bad, It's Good.
Unlike The Roomhe respects Nguyen more for sticking by his original vision of what the project was, and even when it became a laughingstock, he didn't try and pretend it was intended all along.
Notes how gratuitous and unapologetically blatant it is in Meet the Spartans to the point that he suggests it should be called Meet the Sellouts. He finds this to be the case when, after Bella uses a rock to draw just enough blood from her arm to distract a vampire in Eclipse, he says that she did something intelligent. Also in Meet the Spartans when he says that Seltzer and Friedberg made a somewhat intelligent joke by having a character named Councilman Traitorolampooning for having characters that are very obviously villains from the moment you see them.
In The Amityville Haunting, he notes what is supposed to be the scene of a mover dead after falling down the stairs, although his head is nowhere near the puddle of ketchup-blood that apparently came from his head. But neither can excuse this level of incompetence!
All the actor had to do was place his head in the ketchup. Jacob has invited Charlie to come see his daughter, Bella, who has recently been turned into a vampire.
Edward is, of course, outraged, and starts laying into Jacob, asking him if he even considered the physical pain being in Charlie's presence will put Bella through, since being in a human's presence will only increase her vampiric thirst - like having 'a red hot poker shoved down her throat', in Edward's words.
In any other setting with any other characters, we might just be on Bella and Edward's side. Oh oh, you glittery douche nozzle!!! The pain he's already been through? Did you ever think of that, you diseased heap of rat rectum??? This man has loved and cared for his daughter ever since she arrived in Forks; sure, he's not a perfect father - I don't think there is such a thing - but given the circumstances, I'd say he's done a damn good job.
Not once have I doubted that he truly loves Bella and would do anything for her. And in exchange for his love, Bella has done nothing but treat him like absolute shit.

Upwards of costumes were created for the film, as well as extensive prosthetics for various characters and the corpses of Persian soldiers.
Shaun Smith and Mark Rappaport worked hand in hand with Snyder in pre-production to design the look of the individual characters, and to produce the prosthetic makeup effects, props, weapons and dummy bodies required for the production. Butler said that while he did not feel constrained by Snyder's direction, fidelity to the comic imposed certain limitations on his performance.
Wenham said there were times when Snyder wanted to precisely capture iconic moments from the comic book, and other times when he gave actors freedom "to explore within the world and the confines that had been set. Visual effects supervisor Chris Watts and production designer Jim Bissell created a process dubbed "The Crush,"  which allowed the Meteor artists to manipulate the colors by increasing the contrast of light and dark.

Scott of The New York Times describes as "about as violent as Apocalypto and twice as stupid," while criticizing its color scheme and suggesting that its plot includes racist undertones; Scott also poked fun at the buffed bodies of the actors portraying the Spartans, declaring that the Persian characters are "pioneers in the art of face-piercing", but that the Spartans had access to "superior health clubs and electrolysis facilities".
Comic Book Resources ' Mark Cronan found the film compelling, leaving him "with a feeling of power, from having been witness to something grand. The historical consensus, both among ancient chroniclers and current scholars, was that Thermopylae was a clear Greek defeat; the Persian invasion would be pushed back in later ground and naval battles.
The Spartans' use of the narrow terrain, in those particular circumstances, is a military tactic known as " defeat in detail ".

He suggests that the film's moral universe would have seemed "as bizarre to ancient Greeks as it does to modern historians".
