If you guys don't know him he is a Internet reviewer dedicated in watching kid movies mostly from the 80s and the 90sw with a comedic touch and in very formulaic manner. He is to movies what the Angry Video Game Nerd is to well video games, ripping terrible movies into a new asshole and is usually very funny to watch. Unfortunately, in the past six months he is getting worse by the day and his reviews are becoming hit or miss recently. Nowadays it seems like he is getting desperate over a joke and its quite clear he is way past his prime now. Let me enlighten you why these are the 5 Reasons why Doug Walker has become stale as Nostalgia Critic. Why 5?
I was frozen today!!
Sign In. Nostalgia Critic —. Hide Spoilers. Darwinskid 11 July At the time, he didn't have anywhere the budget he has today and because of YouTube guidelines his videos had to try to be less than ten minutes. His content then was very to the point, had legitimate and researched criticism, and above all else was actually funny. Not to say he had a perfect thing going on, he did make a few trivial mistakes with his early videos, but for the most part it a harmless string of YouTube videos. He grew in popularity which led to various others trying to mimic his style of review, getting his own website where he'd not only create content but others as well many of who became internet stars in their own right becoming a guest at conventions, and being able to reach out and get people like Mara Wilson "Matilda" and legendary animator Don Bluth "Secret of NIMH" to appear on his content.

Nostalgia Critic: Okay, okay, let's just move on! You sicken me. Nostalgia Critic: Wow, that was offensive and unfunny.
I do enjoy Nostalgia Critic a lot. He will sometimes pull a joke up that I wasn't expecting and it usually falls under "Genius" shortly thereafter. His last couple were kind of meh, but overall he is one of the funniest people on the internet. The Nostalgia Critic is really hilarious, but sometimes he's funnier and sometimes he's not so funny. I really enjoy the Nostalgia Critic videos, but sometimes, I get the impression that he's trying a bit too hard.
