Trivia

The Critic's feud with The Angry Video Game Nerd (2006) started as a joke when the Critic complained about the Nerd's fans comparing them. Doug Walker didn't expect James Rolfe to acknowledge him, but when he stated on his site that he was a fan, Walker contacted him about keeping a feud going. This became one of the show's best-loved running gags, culminating in no fewer than three in-person confrontations between the Critic and the Nerd, and leading to a real-life friendship between Walker and Rolfe.

Comedy Silver, to say the least
4 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Nostalgia Critic is just as much a comedy series as it is a review show. That's part of the reason why I and so many others love to watch it; truthfully, I don't care about half the stuff he reviews on his show because I'm unfamiliar with most of it.

Be that as it may, the Nostalgia Critic is very much an ADHD-fueled comedy. Doug Walker plays a loud and sarcastic movie critic that makes just as many calm quips about a scene as he does screaming rants about how awful it is. He himself said that he took a lot away from the Queen of Hearts in Disney's Alice in Wonderland in that sort of loud, grumpy individual in a position of power. There's a lot of Robin Williams and Monty Python in him, and recently the show has evolved more into a sketch comedy satirizing bad movies than a comedic review show like Siskel and Ebert At The Movies.

And he doesn't always review bad things. He sometimes admits to liking the movies he makes fun of, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Commando" or "Hook" starring Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman. This is where his calmer side remains dominant, as there isn't as much to anger him.

It's not perfect, and occasionally a joke falls flat, but most of his lines hit bullseyes and I always look forward to his next review.
