You mean, other than him and the others condescending to people who have criticized Prometheus (and not for the petty reasons they satirically bring up) being the entire point of that video?
Ah, but if you are criticizing the movie for valid reasons, don't sweat it. The video was more poking fun at people who did go nuts and bash the film for silly reasons.

In the end, people just need to learn to laugh at themselves.

Well, it is TOUGH to SEE condescension. You have to LISTEN for it.

(See what I did there?)
Very clever.

Either way, other than when he does the Cinema Snob (a character), I'm not hearing any condescension in his voice. His normal midnight reviews are him simply stating whether he likes or dislikes a particular film and discussing why. He doesn't normally make fun of people who hold a different view.

Spoony, on the other hand, a reviewer that I enjoy a great deal, gets rather condescending in the "if you like this film you are brain dead" sort of way.

Here is a video I found earlier from a guy who really dislikes Brad Jones, who quote possibly does actually live in his mom's basement from the looks of it.

His video has five views so far... two of which were from me.
