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 2009 in the Paranormal Activity review on November 9. Mark is using his flappy hands to recreate how the audience are scared in the trailer for the film, to which Simon replied in a deadpan voice "You have got big hands, haven't you?"

The BBC TV comedy series The Thick of It (S03 E05) took it one step further 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".
