He remembers it, we don't.
16 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

Of all the internet stars who have risen in the last 5 years. The Nostalgia Critic (played by Chicago comedian, Doug Walker) has claimed the highest ground by taking forgotten films from the eighties and nineties and critically slaughtering them for 20 minutes. As such, he deliberately picks films that are awful with many of them a good number of them including Batman & Robin, North, Alone in the dark, Battlefield Earth and The Room, all of which have dubious honor of being considered among the worst movies ever made. As bad as these films they provide a perfect foil for his comedic skills as he picks each one apart nearly scene for scene, making fun of just about anything in cinematic jargon.

The episode where he reviews The Room, will probably provide the best introduction to the Critic. The Room is a film that has become notorious for its atrocious z-grade acting,writing,camera-work and editing leading many to dub it as the worst movie ever made. In other words, its a comedic goldmine. Unfortunately that episode was taken down from NCs website within a week due to a "copyright notice" from the films production company. However the review can be found on youtube and blip.TV.

Ironically, NCs reviews have removed obscurity from these films, because the Internets memes he generates with them. I'll remind anyone who wishes to contest this theory that that "I WAS FROZEN TODAY".

Well thats all I can really say about The Nostalgia Critic. His reviews are consistently funny and use well chosen films. In fact his review of THE ROOM was funny enough that it inspired me and my friends to endure the film.On top of that, there are several top 11 episodes where NC looks at the saddest and scariest moments in film, films he considers to be the greatest ever, and the Coolest clichés. However none of these are quite as fresh as his reviews.
