Trivia

The Critic often uses the term "Big-Lipped Alligator Moment" to describe moments in movies that come right out of nowhere, have little to no bearing whatsoever on the plot, are way over-the-top in terms of ridiculousness even in the context of the movie, and after they happen, no one ever speaks of them again. This is named after a scene in the film All Dogs Go to Heaven (1989), where a big-lipped alligator appears, has a random musical number, then is never mentioned again. Ironically, the term was originally coined by the Nostalgia Chick, not the Critic. See more »

The old episodes were great, but the new ones suck
16 September 2014 | by (Co, Derry, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

I was introduced to the Critic back in '08 when he was having his feud with AVGN. I got curious and decided to watch one of his videos. The first one I saw was the Pokemon review and I laughed, and I laughed and I laughed. I got hooked and watched every episode.

It was my fave internet show besides AVGN.

My fave episodes were The Wizard, Commando, Alone In The Dark, Red Sonja, his top 11's, Dungeons and Dragons, Titanic and the commercials.

The Anniversary movies I thought were okay. Some jokes were funny, others were crap.

The show ended in 2012 and Doug did Demo Reel which flopped. So he went back to doing the Critic.

I was happy to hear he was doing the Critic again. But when I began watching the new series, it sucked.

It had more actors that weren't needed and sub-plots that interrupted the reviews. We didn't want those things. We just wanted Doug on his own reviewing the movie. That was what made the show so great.

And the new show focuses more on the sub-plots than the movie that the Critic is reviewing.

The jokes got worse and worse and I decided to stop watching the Critic cold turkey.

So I still love the old eps, but the new ones don't do it for me.

Doug will be doing his game show soon. He should probably quit the Critic and move on to the game show. Let's hope it won't be as bad as Demo Reel.
