Hilarious
17 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first heard about the Nostalgia Critic, in mid 2009. I had just become a fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd, so I had to check out some other stuff he did. When I look at some, I saw that he had a final battle of Epic proportions with a guy called the Nostalgia critic. I decided to check him out. His first review didn't really impress me much, his review of 2007s, Transformers was good (I'm a huge Bum fan), but it didn't seem like that was the style he should be doing his reviews.

But his second episode got me hooked. "Cartoon all stars to the rescue," the second Simon the Chimpmuck said marajuana and I saw the Critic's expression, I knew that I was going to love this guy. Most of his episodes are gold, some of my favorites include the "Batman and Robin," "The Room," and "Moonwalker." Even when he reviews a movie I like I laugh, in fact, those are some I laugh at the most. Godzilla, Twister, and ID4, love the films, but also love the reviews. The only review of his that I hated was his Full House review.

I also enjoy his top 11 lists, and his Old vs. News. If you haven't seen him yet, check him out at thatguywiththeglasses.com.
