Dr Kermode is known for waving his rather large hands when he pontificates upon the merits of a film. This is usually exacerbated when the pontification becomes a full on Kermodian rant.

This originated in the BBC TV comedy series The Thick of It (S03 E05) when Malcolm Tucker (Peter Capaldi) before a visit to the BBC Radio 5 Live studios says Mark Kermode has "huge flappy hands". Later, at the end of the episode Olly (Chris Addison) says while looking at Kermode on a TV screen "God Kermode, your hands are massive".
