There are some funny comments made, but this guy is very irritating!
8 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Doug Walker, aka The Nostalgia Critic is one of many internet celebrities who have become famous for shouting out profane reviews of nostalgic movies (or games), and in many ways, he is the least clever and the least funny of them. He comes off as cheesy, has that creepy smile and is only sporadically funny. His performance though...that is what kills this thing for me!

There's rarely moments where he just talks straight about the film. It's always him talking to himself (or to his own prerecorded pitched up voice), and doing lame schtick sketches that clearly shows that he is the center of attention, not the movie he's reviewing. Oftentimes something stupid and funny said in the movie clips he shows will be killed by an over the top comment by him.

I'm not expecting Grade A acting, and it's understood that this guy is going all out over the top with his performance, but oftentimes it is difficult to watch him. When he gets "angry" his voice goes into Gilbert Gottfried mode and it really is nails on a chalkboard annoying. When he's talking normally, he acts like a really poor theater student. There's never a moment that feels authentic in his review. In other internet reviewer's videos, such as the Angry Video Game Nerd, or Mr. Plinkett, there is a level of authenticity in their performances, even when they are acting. But with The Nostalgia Critic, nothing ever feels authentic. And some people could say "But he's trying to be over the top! It's funny!" Over the top can be funny, but when you play it off right, but his performance comes off as really corny. Not funny corny, usually, either, just annoying and cringe worthy corny.

His reviews in general aren't that great. He describes his distaste for the movie and will go into detail in why he hates them, or plot holes, but he often generalizes his hate. And his hate often relies on pointing out that something isn't funny, when in the film it clearly isn't meant to be. It grows irritating. Where this guy shines is some of his side comments and comparisons. There is at least a few comments per episode that are pretty funny, which get cancelled out with the unfunniness of his performance. Maybe this guy should stick with writing instead of acting, not saying that he's the greatest writer either. He also only points out the obvious, and never does anything but scratch the surface of the movie. And unlike Mr. Plinkett or the Angry Video Game Nerd, his set is extremely boring. An egg shell colored wall...that never changes...ugh!

Really, if Mr. Doug Walker was less annoying, and gave better performances, these would be much more tolerable. But as it is, these are occasionally funny, oftentimes annoying, and in the end, not nearly as good as many other of the popular internet reviewers.

My rating: ** out of ****. Show usually lasts 20 mins.
