  1. The Tod Browning/Bela Lugosi Dracula, which frankly kinda sucked. Lazy direction (like Browning was filming a stage play instead of doing anything creative with camera angles or editing), an ineptly written screenplay (which creates plot holes that weren't in the book), and acting that tends to be hammy and/or wooden.

  2. Kickassia, wihch was hilarious. Some highlights:

    That Chick With The Goggles: [over the phone] Hello. That Chick With The Goggles.
    Nostalgia Critic: Goggles? It's time.
    That Chick With The Goggles: It is?
    Nostalgia Critic: Yes. We are taking over Molossia!
    That Chick With The Goggles: We're taking over Molossia?
    Nostalgia Critic: I know, right? So get your stuff together and come down to...
    That Chick With The Goggles: Oh, by the way, this has been an answering machine the whole time. Leave your message after the beep.

    Nostalgia Critic: [answering phone] Hello?
    Angry Joe: I'm behind you one hundred and ten percent, Critic! Any Chik-Fil-A's
    refusing to serve us delicious nuggets on Sundays from here on out shall
    be blown sky high!
    Nostalgia Critic: What are you talking about?
    Angry Joe: Wait, what are YOU talking about?
    Nostalgia Critic: The invasion of Molossia!
    Angry Joe: ...What is Molossia?

    Nostalgia Critic: It's okay, I booked everybody a hotel room.
    [Cut to a shot of everyone crammed inside a hotel room]
    Phelous: Well gee, I didn't see that one coming.


    Phelous: Hey guys, uh, I got a idea. This might seem like a shot in the dark, but what if we'd just used weapons?
    Nostalgia Critic: Nah, nah, it's a terrible idea.
    [beat]
    Nostalgia Critic: Wait! I have an idea!
    Phelous: Gee, does it involve using weapons?
    Nostalgia Critic: It involves using weapons!

    Cinema Snob: You're out of order, they're out of order! The whole system is out of order!

    Nostalgia Critic: I am the system!

    Cinema Snob: I know you're the system! That's my point!
    Nostalgia Critic: I know it's your point! It's just when you say that I'm out of order and the system's out of order it's kind of redundant!

    Cinema Snob: Look, I'll have a talk with the Critic, see if any of this is true.
    Paw: What if he suspects us going behind his back?
    Cinema Snob: He won't suspect us. I'll put it very delicately.
    [scene cuts to Snob talking to Critic]
    Cinema Snob: Everybody thinks you're nuts.

    Dr. Insano: Your superconductory electromagnetism is no match for my science!
    Nostalgia Critic: It is science!
    Dr. Insano: But I'm science-ier!

    Nostalgia Critic: Wait! I have an idea!
    Phelous: Really? What is it?
    Nostalgia Critic: The idea... involves...
    Phelous: You.
    Nostalgia Critic: Me... um...
    Phelous: Getting.
    Nostalgia Critic: Getting... I... uh...
    Phelous: Your ass kicked.
    Nostalgia Critic: My ass kicked. Me getting my ass kicked. Oh, wait.
    Phelous: Too late.

  3. Mahou Sensei Negima, Episode 21. Remember that rant I had about Episode 16? That was just the first sign of the show's self-destruction. While the first half of the series was pretty well adapted, when they got to the Kyoto arc, (Volumes 4-6), they chose to move several events to earlier in the timeline and rob them of all significance in the process (ie, the pactio with Nodoka at the end of the kissing contest, as previously mentioned), and compress everything else into about two episodes. A complete disappointment.
