Well, this is boring as hell. That voice being used for the whole thing stinks but then he really isn't doing what he does best and just attacking it. It's like he's really afraid to piss off the fans.

And the Bill Cosby crack was just dumb.

Right off the bat he bitches excessively about the Bay films.

And drags it on.


And on.


And on.




As much as these people bitch about Bay's films being tripe and unoriginal, I'm seeing even less originality in these "parodies".

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

I've never not turned off a Nostalgia Critic review before it was finished before.
But I just did now. Good god this was boring. He wasn't nitpicking, he wasn't making funny jokes, he was just summarizing the events and throwing in bad Windows 7 gags (was a Windows 98 gag just too dated, Doug?) in a crappy Optimus Prime imitation.

Not to mention the initial three minutes of Bay bitching.

I haven't watched this video yet, but I thought he really liked the Bay movies? at least the first movie anyway

I was staring right at the screen and tuning him out. Not a good sign so I skipped to the end. So boring.... so boring...

Tell me, did he end the review with something along the lines of "It's better than the Bay films, at least"?

No, he just went on and on about how great the cartoons were for being action packed, having great designs and knowing who they were aiming the show at. I could actually hear him choking on Sunbow's junk.

And yeah, last I checked he loved the films for being great popcorn flicks but now he wants to take the high road by trashing them and talking about thie cartoon crapping rainbows and heart shaped candy.

But...

That's the same formula the Bay movies have! Action, great designs and they knew who they were aiming the films at.

Yep.

I'm really not a fan of this pandering.There is SO much to pick on in that show. If you wanna end it by saying how much you loved it then do so but don't make a bland video about nothing for your series of comedic reviews of bad material.

The worst part of it all is Doug has previously said he was a not-caring-too-much-about-Transformers-I-was-too-old-when-it-came-out type guy, so this gushing comes WAY out of left field.

Such a shame. I was really looking forward to The Critics' "Transformers Cartoon" review & it winds up just another way to bash on the live-action films.

"Turtles" didn't get a free pass because he hated the Imagi film. "Superman" wasn't considered weaker because it didn't have Christopher Reeve. But the Robots are automatically better as a cartoon. hug that.

And what exactly was doing the review as Optimus Prime supposed to add to the experience???

I just find it odd that the guy with his name on the site, posts his videos to blip first?

or is that just how it's done?

Technically, Mike Michaud owns TGWTG, and apparently video management on the site isn't done by Doug. I've noticed this a lot, not just with Doug but with others, when the stuff is posted to Blip/their blogs/their personal websites well before showing up on TGWTG.com.

Um...does this turn into a review any time soon? It just seems to be a bunch of unfunny people in bad costumes so far.

Wow, I didn't think it was possible, but this one sounds worse than the Last Action Hero review.

likely because Spoony's sick again icon-screamer.gif and we've all watched Linkara's new HotPR already .. and its Tuesday so no Live WTFIWWY on radio dead air

honestly I'd rather watch Phalous' review of TFTM
