I feel like with this video in particular, he's trying too hard. This particular review is gonna cost him some fans because he has inflated his views on Jurassic World to an annoying degree. I've personally always found him very pretentious, especially for somebody whose criticisms are getting less and less valid with every review. For that matter, the Nostalgia critic persona is wearing thin. He quit the channel and making videos for no reason (maybe to eventually come back and hype up the channel?) but he shot himself in the foot, people's expectations changed and his reviews ever since have been disappointments and have been mostly focused on movies which people generally like...

Don't get me wrong. I still think he's good, he's just not as funny as he used to be. He's getting worse and worse. I take a break from watching the new NC for 2 months and when I return, the quality of the content went down immensely.KeithMoonIsGod wrote:Yeah, he's pretty butthurt about it. And it doesn't even have a good payoff: it just ends with him saying "I can't really say whether it's good or bad... See it for yourself."
I agree with Metalhead tbh; ever since he "returned," his videos have had some pretentiousness to them (I mean, his character was always supposed to be an opinionated asshole who thought he was always right, but I watched the ending to his Matrix review and totally got the impression he believed his own hype). Some made me laugh, but mostly they were disappointing, especially compared to his older videos.
I'm not that bad though: I have a friend who went from loving all of his videos to hating Doug Walker completely within the course of a few months though, which really puzzled me.
I think his videos are not meant to be taken too seriously. He exaggerates his thoughts for the purpose of creating a better show, much like YouTube ranters such as ADoseofBuckley. In my opinion though, he shouldn't use as many special effects in his videos and go back to what he did early on: some cheesy special effects for comedy, not waving his adobe-aftereffects-dick in his audience's face and get rid of his stupid loud intro.
Can i see what the old OP looked like with all the italic notes? This thread has nothing. (Don't want to put those back in, just want to see a REALLY bad thread)

Well, fuck you and your straw man too, Doug. The way you "evolve" is to listen to your audience and adapt based on what they want, not hold your fingers in your ears and changing for the sake of change.
Ooh, and looks like it's time to dust off my Dan Aykroyd thread. C♯2 at 16:10!
