Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

Actually not as much as you'd think. He only did the "I was frozen today" clip once in the entire review. The "Genesis" quote was probably the biggest annoying thing in the whole review.

He does use "I was Frozen Today" but I think its the best handled version, as it plays as he's falling off the cliff and cuts off when he hits the lava.

For the most part I agree with you, but he has his moments.

His interaction with Doug in the Star Trek: TMP review was the best I've ever seen him. Granted they were spoofing the classic scene from Star Trek II, but he did it well and it was a geniunely hysterical moment.

I haven't really watched any TGWTG.com videos for a while, partly due to taste and partly due to tech (my system really doesn't like Blip). What really drove me away is what many have mentioned- the increasing heavy handed self insert storylines. Linkara is really the worst for this, with his constant pretending he's a Power Ranger or Doctor Who. Add in that it's basically "Here's 12 minutes of me showing you how awesome I am in my head, outwitting multiverse emperors with toys". All the crossover events haven't really helped that, since they're basically the staff creating what they claim to lampoon. The AVGN vs NC feud has had it's moments but the rest....there's just something a bit too desperate about them to me. Like you're witnessing a bunch of people who were picked on through school escaping to their own self glorifying fantasy world.

I recall the first Secret Origins Month, when he concluded by asking "What's that? You wanted to know MY secret origin?" I looked at my computer and said aloud: "No. No, I did not". He needs to stop pretending that Linkara is a "character" in the way the Nostalgia Critic is a character Doug plays. Linkara is HIM, talking the way he does and reacting to a comic the way he does. And then trying to say that no, he's actually a character he plays who is a Power Ranger and a Time Lord, so he can have dress-up amateur hour... ugh.

90s Kid is about the only one of Linkara's "characters" I like. Mainly because it actually works in the narrative of a comic review show.

Also how Brad riffed it mercilessly with his 80s Dan character.

I think that short bunch of episodes where Linkara was "missing" was the best example of that. Harvey Finevoice doing a review was just "Linkara does the review the same as always but with an accent, then sings at the end for some reason". Whereas 90's Kid actually reviewed it in a unique - and FUNNY - way that WASN'T the same as if it had been done normally.

ThatGuyWithTheGlasses is a weekly guilty pleasure for mine. I don't follow all the members all the time, mainly The Nostalgia Critic, The Nostalgia Chick and Spoony. But over time I came to find something interesting from the majority of the reviewers. Every once in a while, I'll give a chance to someone I previously had no interest in and I'm often pleasantly surprised though in some cases, I stick to only certain shows of theirs.

However, I'm still baffled by the amount of hate the site generates in some people, or even the harsh criticisms they deal out when a review isn't up to their standards. You'd think they were somehow paying for all this entertainment judging by their reactions.

While it's true that Doug and co make a living from making videos for the site, that doesn't, in my opinion, justify all the crap they get. I especially hate when a reviewer backs down or worse, apologizes either for daring to do a review that was *gasp* different than the ones they usually do, or for having expressed an unpopular (but justified and well explained) opinion about a movie, TV show or video game. I watch what I find entertaining and if/when I stop having fun there, I'll just stop visiting the site.

I do agree with everyone that the story arcs are at best tolerable and annoying. In some cases, they've made me stop following certain reviewers. Okay, only Linkara but The Dark Nella Saga came pretty close and l usually love Nella. They wouldn't be so bad if they weren't being played so seriously all the time. And yeah, some reviewers are almost more interesting when they're *not* being in character. I love the fact that Doug started reviewing new movies as himself in addition to Chester E. Bum and I don't know how natural Spoony is when reviewing a movie or game, but he was really funny in Counter Monkey. I don't remember any other 'au naturel' but it's always a nice change.

I hope the site stays around for a long time personally.

To be fair, there are times when they get things wrong and deserve to be called out. Marzgurl is a great example- she did a set of videos covering the history of Disney and got various things wrong. When people who knew what they were talking about pointed said mistakes out, her mob of horny fanboys told them to stop nitpicking.
Which is another complaint in of itself- those who are a bit too eager about these people because they're getting entertainment in more ways then one.

Even Doug isn't perfect. For example, he insists the Last Action Hero review was a clever satire in the style of his movie but no one but him and his brother seem to believe this and it comes off as if he completely missed the point of the movie. He's even ignored plot threads in stuff he's reviewed solely to make jokes about how the movie doesn't cover plotholes he creates. He's one of the better ones for acknowledging this (see the likes of Top Nostalgia Critic hug Ups) but it still deserves to be called out when it happens.

However, yes, some people will just hate regardless.

Spoony is Spoony, far as I can tell. He's not much different from "Regular Joe Spoony" and "On Air Personality", save for maybe being a little more abrasive in "reality". Which might just be due to the year he's had.

Then again, he did bellow out "Betrayal" at E3, so maybe he just is that abrasive.

I love NC. His reviews are hilarious and he doesn't overdue the 'not part of the review' stuff. His other two personalities are excellent as well.

The only other reviewers from the site I watch regulary are Spoony (he doesn't do many reviews, but the ones he does are excellent), Film Brain, and Linkara (although I fast-forward through his silly little fanfic).

There are others on the site, but some I simply cannot watch (Angry Joe just annoys me, and CR, while very accurate and extensive, mainly just tries to justify his crush on this or that sexy cartoon character... see his Marge Simpson vs. Lois Griffin face-off) or ones who are funny but I have no interest in the things they review (Phelous and Cinema Snob) - I do watch these latter ones sometimes. Btw, check out Phelous' Troll II. review for a hilarious and very well animated Devastator appearance...

I must be the minority of people who actually likes Linkara's own segments. For me yes he's a bad actor but it's the fact that he's taking all these role play gadgets and actually doing something with them. I like how he incorporates the stuff in. Does it make sense in the long run. Hell No. The only time I really don't watch a review of his is when what he reviews has no interest to me.

Critic does go overboard with his jokes a lot of the time. He gets in a rut of using the same one over and over again and it grates on ya. GENESIS! being the latest. But really what gets me interested is the energy that he puts into the review. Yes his opinion may not be always stellar on everything but the gusto he puts into it is what makes it fun to watch. May not always be pleasantly fun at times but it's something better than the monotone opinions you get from professional reviews. I'd trust Dougs opinion of a movie over any newspaper or media reviewer in the larger media. He's my everyman of sorts. Not always right but he grasps the general audience better than other reviewers that work for the press.

Other than that I watch every other Nostalgia Chick, even though she comes off as kinda aggravating sometimes. Also the You Know Who segments lately have been fun. And I've watched a lot of CR's Familar Faces though lately those faces haven't been more of the norm lately. Angry Joe I just started to watch and he obviously doesn't know everything in the greatest detail of what he talks about, and his personality grates on me when he's raging on something, but his vocal points often match with my own, especially in the case of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 this year.

Daith - I don't mind Linkara's fanfic-acting, but I wish he would do them separately from his comic reviews. He could just make a new section and upload them there... When I tune in for his reviews, it is to see him rip apart a badly written comic.

Brute Force is a crazy comic though. Hard to believe Marvel axed Transformers G1 due to low sales then had Furman write this crap. They wanted some toy company to approach them to make toys of Brute Force? Come on Marvel, thats dumb. I actually didn't know it was Furman who wrote Brute Force in the review of the first issue - but I recognised a Furmanism.


Wait, Furman wrote this AFTER Transformers?

I knew he did it - read the comic many years ago - but I thought it was one of his early works before he started writing TFs. I mean, if his name wasn't there, I could hardly tell he did this. I suspect the editors were severely telling him exactly what to write, especially due to the heavy-handed enviromentalist messages in the comic.
