Top 10 Worst Things About the Nostalgia Critic

While I do enjoy most of NC's reviews, I have to admit that most of them are unbelievably flawed.

The Top Ten

1 He Makes Lots of Mistakes

He's terrible

Uh, dude, he made a list showing the mistakes he made. Everyone makes lots of mistakes! Besides, he looks like a pretty nice and normal guy, even though his reviews may seem a little out of hand and loud they're is always that center part of his reasoning and explaining that is just heartwarming or just fun too watch. Also in his Doug Walker reviews it's his true self, not the guy who jokes around, swears a lot, screams, and makes mistakes that most of us love. It's his true colors that show. He is my favorite critic, and always will be. (Also, CHECK OUT HIS COMMERCIAL REVIEWS! I ALWAYS DIE LAUGHING FROM THEM! And you will see Canada's opinion on rape. )

2 Reuses Old Jokes

Pointless unfunny side characters

3 Thinks Spider Man should be Dark and Broody like Batman

And plus, how the hell could he possibly think the amazing spider-man movies are better than the original moves?

He thinks every superhero should be dark and brooding, which would be stupid

And the worst part, he likes more the Mark Webb's spiderman

I agree, how the hell can you think the Amzing Spider-Man is better than the original. Andrew Garfield sucks as Spider-Man. And Nostalgia Critic sucks as a critic.

4 Doesn't Know Anything about Animals
5 He Swears A Lot

Who Cares
He Has The Right To Swear

6 Is Loud

He makes fun of Chris Tucker for screaming high pitched yet he does the exact same thing.

When has screaming high pitched ever been funny?

He's like a demon possessed manchild for god's sake!

7 Has an Annoying Voice

Yep he sure does have a weird voice!

8 His Fans

Many of his fans seem to have the mentality that "if the Nostalgia Critic says its bad, it must be bad".

I'm not even exaggerating, here is a quote from a comment on one of his reviews "I still can't believe there are people who are actually coming out of the woodwork to DEFEND this movie. That's what's surprising to me."

To add even more shock this comment was extremely popular. Its very unsettling and cult-like.

His fans need to get a life.

9 His Let's Play of Bart's Nightmare

I played the game and I am a Simpsons fan and I hated the game - Frouze

10 His Autism Joke in Ernest Saves Christmas

As a sufferer of Autism, I was deeply offended by this.

I must say I agree with you, for I have autism as well

Haha there is something funny, in Mexico they have facebook page of bad humor who call themselves "autist" You will love to know the Mexican people

I don't think it was that bad

11 Some Jokes Go on Longer Than Necessary

Some of the skits in his more recent reviews tend to get on my nerves in straying away from the actual review. Some aren't even that funny.

12 He is Very Picky
13 His Overuse of Dark Humor

Most of it goes on in the series to the point where it's not really funny. Just hard to watch.

It wouldn't be so bad if he weren't to put down toilet humor so much and pretend that "shocking" dark humor is somehow more classy than toilet humor.

Nostalgia Critic hates toilet humor, yet he is putting toilet humor in his own channel.

How dare you praise toilet humor. >:(

14 He Hates Every Single Blue Sky Studios Film (With The Exception Of The Peanuts Movie)

You really shouldn't listen to AniMat he hates Blue Sky as well. So he says their movies have bad writing? puh-lease! Sure the writing isn't the best out there but it isn't the worst out there either. It's writing is overall, while not the best ever is nonetheless really good and most (or at least some) of their animated films are actually some of the best animated films ever made like Rio for example. But honestly I think one of the only reasons why people hate on them is because of film companies like Disney, Dreamworks and maybe one or two others being quite overrated and because of people like AniMat and fans like his believing everything thing he says without questioning it. If only people would not do that because it's really annoying and frustrating.

"I just want to point out, I don't hate Blue Sky." - AniMat most recently before he said that Blue Sky does not have the strongest stories but have good animation on his review of Ice Age: Collision Course which got a little bit of hate probably because he said that he does not like Hotel Transylvania or especially Ice Age: Collision Course and Strange Magic

Sony Pictures Animation is an overrated animation studio. AniMat was right, however, his hatred of Sony Pictures Animation is taken a bit too far, especially with Cloudy 2.

I would much rather listen to AniMat instead of the Shaytards. I did not hear AniMat say that Blue Sky movies have the worst writing. The only Blue Sky movie AniMat hates is Ice Age: Collision Course. He gave the Rio duology a slightly positive reception, Ice Age: Continential Drift a mediocre reception and The Peanuts Movie very positive reception. AniMat is allowed to dislike Sony Pictures Animation. Cinemassacre should be listened to as well. E-Rod is right on most of his reviews. Don't tell me we shouldn't listen to Bobsheaux either.

15 He's Very Simple-Minded

People, stop watching his content already. He's a frigging idiot. He always shoves his opinion down your throats and is extremely pretentious, self entitled, stupid, unfunny, annoying, never brings up good points, and the thing I hate most isn't Nostalgia Critic. It's Doug. I really hate how he says Inside Out and Toy Story 3 are great, (when in reality they are monstrosities of film) yet he craps on far better films like Howl's Moving Castle, and Meet The Robinsons. His recent trailer for suicide squad and his reaction to his own trailer was where I drew the line. Why would he hype up his review of the films so much as to make a trailer for it? But more importantly, WHY IS HE REACTING TO IT?!?!?! I thought this was a movie review channel, not a cancerous reaction channel! I can see scraping the bottom of the barrel if he is going through money problems or is running out of content, but this is just pathetic.

His emotions and biases overpower his intellect. There is also a lack of vocabulary, mainly him just swearing.

He actually seems quite intelligent and well educated,

16 He Hates Good Cartoons and Loves Crappy Cartoons

I find it annoying and kinda hypocritical that he balls out some cartoons like the flintstones for having bad animation but then gives other ones like scooby doo a free pass

I find it odd that he said the animation in the Spider-Man cartoon was terrible, yet in his review for the X-Men cartoon, a show that has the EXACT SAME ANIMATION QUALITY, he completely ignores that fact and calls the show amazing

It's weird how he said Spider-Man TAS had bad animation even though avatar, a show he loves, had animation that was barely better than it

Whoever put this on the list could tell us which cartoons you are all referring to specifically.

Also, the animation in Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender/The Legend of Korra is breathtaking!

Other than that, the creator of this list actually liked the Nostalgia critic according to both the description and a reply.

The Flintstones is underrated, thanks to Nostalgia Critic, who is a great YouTuber, but not as great as his inspirations from Bobsheaux to MrBKainX.

17 His Misunderstanding of the Planet's Psychology

He did acknowledge this mistake in one of his top 11 nostalgic mess ups

I'm not trying to defend Battlefield Earth or anything, but this mistake resulted in one of his biggest outbursts ever. Which in reality, it wasn't called for.
Now that's embarrassing.

It's Psychlo you idiots. I wrote this list and had it originally as Psychlo. You can't change it to Psychology.

18 His Obsession with Batman

Every single time he mentions a superhero movie or cartoon he always has to compare it to Batman, and I'm sick of him saying Batman TAS was the cartoon that changed everything, cause it's not, if anything, Spawn TAS handled that tone way better than Batman TAS, you know why? Because Spawn was full on dark and gritty, Batman was pretty serious too but not nearly as much, and in terms of the movies, once again Batman wasn't the only one who was making movies with a darker tone, Blade came out the same year as the first batman movie and they had pretty simillar tones, and we had 3 X-men that came out 5 years before the dark knight trilogy came along. I'm just so sick of him and all these other people that always praise the batman movies or cartoon on being the first ones that have a serious tone, cause they weren't

Now I'm fine with people being obsessed over things, but when someone like the Nostalgia Critic says "How can I get Catherine Zeta-Jones in a Batman outfit? ", then that's taking it a little bit too far.

What the hell is this, I don't EVEN

19 He Considers The Lion King to Be Overrated, Yet He is Oblivious to Frozen's Flaws.

I understand that we should respect other people's opinions and I understand the criticisms he made on The Lion King in his Disneycember review, but the only flaw he had with Frozen was about the Elsa and Anna's backstory being too rushed, yet he doesn't realize that the entire plot was rushed, that the characters don't have much personality, and that Hans was made to be a last-minute villain-in-disguise when there were other much better villains with this characteristic (e.G. , Professor Quirrell in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone). Again, I'm not against Doug Walker's opinions and I don't hate Frozen, I just think the movie's overrated and wish that Doug could explain more about Frozen's cons while still outlining the pros in his Disneycember review. Hopefully CinemaSins could help him realize the film's flaws.

Ah, the reason that was only added to this list because all the Frozen haters are mad that Doug doesn't hate the movie like they do

20 He Made Fun Of Rio In His Foodfight Review

His otherwise good review of Foodfight was ruined by his hatred of the movie and the company that made it. If he hadn't made fun of Rio, I would have really liked the review. Same with his review of The Swan Princess. As result I refuse to watch those reviews because of the fact he cruelly made fun of the movie and the company that made it.

Ruined Such A Great Episode

For Christs sake people! Why is everyone treating his dislike of Rio as a sign of the apocalypse? Aren't we supposed to be free to have our own taste in movie? What is so terrible about him not liking Rio?

Rio review
Story: 5
Animation: 8
Characters: 6
Sound: 9
Final verdict: 7/10 (if I reviews Rio, it would be mostly the same as AniMat's review)
