Aunt Despair tells her adorable niece about a time long ago when the Nostalgia Critic reviewed Balto, that mid-90s animated movie about that dog. Despite the many moments of incredulity the film exhibits, it was based.....
Two weeks ago, the Critic looked at 11 of the best movie sequels. And now, as expected, it's time to look at 11 shameful sequels - no relation to that British Person's show. With so many sequels, of good and bad caliber, it's very difficult to weed out which ones are best of the best or best of the worst. But the Critic believes he's come across the very worst follow-ups that ever got greenlit.
This sequel has the Critic seeing red and feeling very blue. Because, as is the tradition in Hollywood: if a terrible movie makes a lot of money, it must get a sequel that is even worse. Before you can say "smurf that smurf" they rushed out a follow-up to The Smurfs. With Sequel Month almost over, the Critic pulls himself up by his bootstraps and endures Smurfs 2: Electric Smurfaloo. And he has to go it alone this time, because Black Nerd had stuff to do.
The stupid Garfield movie had a stupid sequel, and to properly close off Sequel Month, the Nostalgia Critic gives it a damn good thrashing and de-clawing. Garfield has a royal doppelganger which makes for a case of mistaken identity. With all the tropes of a bad sequel and no loyalty to the source material, this is one mindless mess, but under the circumstances, a worthy follow-up.
The Nostalgia Critic answers the age old question of why do so many sequels suck? Whether they're rehashes of the originals set in different locations, made too long after the original, a lack of understanding of the source material, or just not having enough time to get everything done, so many factors exist as to why so many sequels are done poorly.
Haven't you ever wondered what Roger Rabbit would be like if it were directed by Ralph Bakshi? How about it were geared more towards adults - and crackheads. The Nostalgia Critic brushes up on his limited Bakshi knowledge by looking at one of his biggest theatrical disasters: Cool World. No story, no character development, terrible editing, and the actors are as 2D as the animated characters. The Critic must also endure the incessant ramblings of an embittered Mr. Bakshi himself.
The Nostalgia Critic looks back on some of the most memorable Disney villains, and wonders why the antagonists in the modern Disney films are not as memorable. Examining both the contemporary and classic, the Critic explains what makes a good Disney villain, how all villains are created equally, and how certain circumstances make some shine darker than others.
Sometimes the end isn't actually THE end. Whether it be tacked on, studio mandated, changed in editing, or any myriad of reasons, movies can often have different endings than originally intended, and so the Nostalgia Critic picks 11 alternate endings that just make you want to say "What the Fuck?"
Aunt Despair tells her adorable niece about a time long ago when the Nostalgia Critic reviewed Balto, that mid-90s animated movie about that dog. Despite the many moments of incredulity the film exhibits, it was based...BASED on a true story, with many, many creative liberties taken because why not?
