The worst movie critic I have ever seen in my entire life
4 December 2013 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

I was curious about how people make video reviews of movies, video games and such. When I heard people taking about the Nostalgia Critic on YouTube, I gave the show a chance, I have seen a bit of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog review, and wondered what his opinion on the show was going to be, but I wished I had not done that.

The Nostalgia Critic himself is really, really annoying, an epitome of destructive criticism and a menace to the film industry. At first, he was swearing and nitpicking excessively in the review, which is one of the factors of making such a bad review, but my viewing experience of The Nostalgia Critic was getting even worse. He was constantly screaming. But the absolute worst part of the series is the gun. The gun is an unnecessary gimmick and it slows the review down at best, but made the review absolutely insufferable and the Nostalgia Critic even more annoying than he was earlier at worst. Then after the gun, and a few moments afterwards, I stopped watching. I think The Nostalgia Critic was the worst movie critic I ever laid eyes on. He did not elaborate why he hated the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, all he did was exaggerate his emotion, scream, swear, nitpick and use that awful gun. I am a hypocrite for saying this, but we all see bad films, but do we have to so negative about them? There are much worse things than seeing bad films, like plane or car crashes.

I would like The Nostalgia Critic a lot better, if he just elaborated why he likes and dislikes certain movies, stayed calm as a cucumber, speaking honestly, having the gun completely removed and swear and nitpick a lot less. Not only might I like him had he done those aforementioned things, but I also might consider him to be a much better movie critic. But no, he is a really, really bad movie critic and the worst I have ever seen!

The only good thing in this series is I possibly may agree with the Nostalgia Critic on certain things, had I seen more of his videos, which I did not.

Final conclusion: I recommend you never watch The Nostalgia Critic. Ever. Do not let curiosity of video reviews get the best of you, like me. Watch a friendlier and much calmer person reviewing them with nothing but honest opinions and recommendations, with a bit of entertainment he or she has to offer.

I wish I could give this show a negative grade. If I did, it would be -1,000,000 out of 10.
