The source of bad comedy on the Internet and also a fundamental misunderstanding about what films should be
25 December 2015 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The Nostalgia Critic, and probably everyone that's affiliated with him, is literary unbelievable terrible.

His videos are not reviews. A retelling of the plot in chronological order with a few unfunny comments and bad pop-culture references thrown in is not a review. It never has been a review. But because the guy was so influential, for many years, until people like RedLetterMedia, YourMovieSucks or Channel Criswell stepped up, that was all the movie criticism on the internet offered. It's horrible.

He's probably also the source of the Internets fascination with plot holes. A movie never won the award for being the most logical. Movies aren't mathematical equations, they're art. What's important is that a movie has a heart, that it invokes emotions in the viewer, not how completely logical the plot is.

But I wouldn't even care if his videos would be funny, but they are atrocious. So incredibly bad. The most glaring problem is Doug Walker himself, his screaming is incredibly annoying and impressively unfunny.

His skits are inhumanly terrible. Sometimes, they take up literary half the video. And not even just at the beginning or end, but in the middle too. If I want to watch a movie review, I want to watch a review, not "middle aged untalented actor does things". But you know why they do them. Because these guy are all failed film students. They just can't help themselves, the want to make movies and dress up and pretend they are characters from something else like little children. A shame that it's so bad.

His videos are incredibly substanceless and don't offer any new insights into anything.

The same thing could be said about almost everyone else at "The Guy with the Glasses.com" . Just the worst thing ever.
