Any fans of the Nostalgia Critic here?

Postby LunarRaptor » Wed Sep 21, 2011 3:53 am

In case anyone reading this had no idea: he remembers it so you don't have to. His real name is Doug Walker, and he runs a video review show where he tears apart or the worst nostalgic movies from his generation's childhoods.

Personally, my favorite review of his was the one for the first Care Bears movie. The jokes just clicked with that one. My least favorite of his review of the 1995 Casper movie.

I think I prefer Nostaligia Chick (Dune debacle aside) overall, but I do love his review of The Wizard.

I'm totally the opposite. I much prefer Marzgurl and Little Miss Gamer because they don't constantly go on feminists tangents.

Dune debacle? Does this have to do with the 1984 version or the Sci-fi miniseries?

I haven't heard of any of these people, but I'll take a look.

She made a Dune (1984) review, which got flamed to a crisp, so she took it down and made a formal apology to the film's fans.

I'm a fan, my favorite reviews of his are the two animated Titanic reviews. There's a fair number I don't like.

I like the whole TGWTG crew. Met Doug, Angry Joe and Linkara at a con before. Great guys. :)
To be honest though, I'm more of an Angry Videogame/Nintendo Nerd fan lol.

I watched a little of his work. It was alright. My favorite was his VS Puppetmon skit.

The first time I saw him, I laughed. Then it got old, and I can't watch a whole episode. When I laugh, I can laugh pretty hard, but mostly he's a dork in personality, and I keep wanting his humor to be the AVGN. Yes, I said it. AVGN just does it better.
