List of Nostalgia Critic episodes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Nostalgia Critic is a web review series hosted by Doug Walker. The series began in July 2007 on YouTube, but after the website removed several episodes due to alleged copyright violations, the series was moved in April 2008 to Walker's own humor website, That Guy with the Glasses, where it has been hosted ever since. Most episodes center on movies and serials that Walker finds to be poorly written, badly acted, and typically panned by critics—particularly Siskel and Ebert, whom Doug openly acknowledges as his favorite critics. Not all of his reviews are negative, as he sometimes finds positive aspects and even praises some films and TV shows (sometimes for their hamminess/bad production). The series also features several "Top 11 Countdown" segments, which Doug does as opposed to the traditional "Top 10" because he, in his own words, "Like(s) to go one step beyond", as well as a series of "Old Vs. New" segments, where The Critic compares iconic films like Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory, True Grit, Batman, King Kong and Spider Man with their respective modern-day reboots/remakes and levies which he finds to be the better film.

Direct-to-DVD Reviews[edit]

Every Best of ThatGuyWithTheGlasses DVD special include an exclusive review made for the release. After the end of To Boldly Flee, these episodes were released on TGWTG.com.

DVD Film Review
Volume One Turkish Rambo The Critic reviews Rampage (1986). He criticizes the excessive driving scenes, poor quality of the film, bad lip-syncing, and the actors habit of staring into the camera. In the end, he admits that while the film is "pure crap", it is enjoyable.
Volume Two Reefer Madness The Critic reviews Reefer Madness (1936). While he agrees that drugs are not a good thing or something to be promoted, he heavily criticizes the film for grossly over-exaggerating the effects of cannabis and making it seem like the worst thing in the world, even compared to alcohol, which is legal, and narcotics like heroin. He also criticizes the characters for being very bland to the point that he accuses them of actually being puppets, and far too innocent for their age group. He does recommend the film nonetheless, as it is "a lot of fun" for its ridiculousness. In the end, Chester A. Bum shows up to announce to the Critic that the film has inspired him to quit smoking marijuana; however, this proves to be a double-headed snake, as Chester decides to rely on "good old fashion crack" instead.

Channel Awesome Tag: Kenneth Craig as Bill Harper: "Gosh, hot chocolate!"

The Blues Brothers: Jukebox Adventure The Critic reviews the video game The Blues Brothers: Jukebox Adventure. He ultimately criticizes the slippery controls, little relation to the film, slippery surfaces, and a flying snake that is near impossible to control. In the end, he throws the game outside and shoots at it. Chester A. Bum finds the game and plays it before throwing the game away also, only for the game to again be found by someone else, Dominic from Video Game Confessions.
Volume Three Doomsday Machine The Critic reviews Doomsday Machine (1972). He mainly criticizes its overuse of stock footage, racism and sexism towards women. Special criticism is reserved for the ending, which consists majorly of one shot of two men trying to fix a computer, a shot that lasts for approximately eight minutes. In the end, while he admits the film is very bad, it is laughably bad and enjoyable.

Channel Awesome Tag: Bobby Van as Danny: "Don't you miss being a woman?"

The Making of a Nostalgia Critic Review Doug Walker documents what goes into making a Nostalgia Critic episode, using Doomsday Machine as the prime target.
Nostalgia Critic: Reloaded Kickassia, Suburban Knights and To Boldly Flee The Critic, still in the Plothole (following the events of To Boldly Flee) and not recognizing himself, reviews the three That Guy with the Glasses anniversary films.
Volume Four Paranoia The Critic, sick of reviewing old, lesser known films for the DVDs, reviews Brad Jones' Paranoia (2011). While he criticizes some plotholes, a sometimes confusing story, Jones' character's constant use of the word, "What", and unnecessary scenes, he admits the film does well in creating the mood it is going for.

Channel Awesome Tag: Brad Jones as Mark Bishop: "What?"

Doug lists the movies that he hated to watch for the Nostalgia Critic. In other words, movies he honestly hates.

11. Patch Adams (1998)
10. The Haunting (1999)
9. Moulin Rouge! (2001)
8. The Cell (2000)
7. Baby Geniuses (1999)
6. Inspector Gadget (1999)
5. Bio-Dome (1996)
4. Felix the Cat: The Movie (1988)
3. Little Monsters (1989)
2. Drop Dead Fred (1991)
1. The Garbage Pail Kids Movie (1987)

Note: The number one choice is the one Doug explains the most about why he hates it; He claims it to be horribly written, horribly directed, and horribly acted. He also claims the movie is far too dark for a children's film, that the Garbage Pail Kids are completely unlikable characters, and that the bullies are completely without motivation. He strongly hates the idea of a "state home for the ugly", finding it flat-out insulting to the audience. He says he cannot remember a single charming or positive moment throughout the entire film and that every second was horrible. He ends by stating he has not found a single person who legitimately liked the film, and would be interested in hearing from someone who did, just to hear how something positive can actually be found in it somewhere. His hatred for the movie is also shown more in his review of it than of any other movie he has ever reviewed, as he ends it with the film actually being so bad that it "killed" him.

Cancelled or postponed episodes[edit]

  • The "Nickelodeon Month" in January 2009 was supposed to end with an episode on Nickelodeon game shows, but as the Critic states on the SNICK episode, he could not find quality footage from programs other than the already reviewed Double Dare. The episode was replaced by Good Burger.
  • The Critic originally meant to end January 2010's "Schwarzenegger Month" with a review of The 6th Day. However, for reasons unknown, he changed it to End of Days.
  • A review of Newsies was replaced with Rocky IV since the Nostalgia Chick expressed interest in reviewing it.[1]
  • An Old vs. New of The Prince of Egypt vs. The Ten Commandments was planned, but postponed and replaced with The Top 11 Scariest Performances, since Doug decided to spend the entire month of October reviewing horror movies. The Old vs. New aired the following month on November 16.[1]
  • An Old vs. New of War of the Worlds was planned,[2] but as the Critic explains in "Next Top 11 Nostalgia Critic Fuck-ups", he found both the 1953 film and the 2005 film underwhelming while re-watching them, and pulled the plug on the episode.
  • A review of Drop Zone was replaced by Ernest Scared Stupid because the Critic decided to spend the whole month of October 2010 reviewing horror films.
  • Doug has stated in his "Top 10 Movies That I Hate But Everybody Else Loves" that he intended to do a review of Matilda (1996), but had cancelled it due to angered feedback from audiences. He did, however, express his criticism in this video. It is unknown if he ever actually made the episode. In October 2012, the Nostalgia Chick (Lindsay Ellis) would do her own review of Matilda with Mara Wilson herself (and the Critic making a brief cameo).
  • Doug was originally going to review Small Soldiers (1998) for his final regular Nostalgia Critic review on August 14, 2012. While he noted it was bad, he did not feel that the film gave him enough material for a review, and switched it to Scooby-Doo (2002) instead.[3] However, on August 12, 2014, he eventually followed through with his review of the film.
  • The Critic intended to review Armageddon but did not due to the Nostalgia Chick having already reviewed it.
