Every show starts off with Scott Johnson introducing each member of the crew by inserting a nickname in the middle of their name that is connected with the movie they'll be reviewing.
Teams On several movies there has been a clear dividing line on who likes and who hates the movie they are reviewing. Whenever a team is formed a team name is used which is an amalgamation of the two members names.
Team Names that have been used
- Jibbott (Johnson and Ibbott)
- Deluxeaway (Deluxe and Dunaway)
There have been many times that only one person has been on the opposing side who must then defend their position while the other three try and bring him over to their side. Examples include Blue Thunder (which Brian Dunaway hated), Troll 2 (despised by Randy), and Jason Goes to Hell (not at all Scott's cup of tea). Those defending the movie in each case haven't necessarily thought it was good, but made a case for finding enjoyment where a certain host just wasn't seeing it.
A Trope Alert is sounded whenever someone starts talking about a trope (a reoccurring theme in movies) that occurred in the movie. This is accompanied by the sound of an alert taken from "Star Trek".
Chick in the BucketEdit
This is a reference to Film Sack of the movie Wild Wild West. Early in that movie there is a female character bathing in a water tower. The movie leaves her there and never shows her again. The chick in the bucket now refers to anything in a movie that was introduced and then abandoned in favor of following the hero.
Scott Johnson will go through the movie and take sound bytes from various scenes in the movie as reference. The crew will discuss parts of that scene and go more in depth on their thoughts.
