Doug WalkerDoug WalkerFebruary 13, 2019 (2019-02-13)

The Critic reviews The Country Bears (2002). He admits to not having seen the full film despite referencing it many times in the past, but now confesses that he enjoys the film for what it is; an entertaining film filled with a lot of nicely done elements, while the bad stuff is also equally as entertaining. He only gives criticism to the majority of the musical numbers, finding them slightly boring, but finds all other elements good, or at least bad on an enjoyable level. He finds the puppetry and animatronics on the Bears themselves to be very good, believes the film's unbalanced tone actually adds to the entertainment level, praises the majority of the humor, both the intentional jokes and the unintentional jokes (considering the director of this film worked on Animaniacs), and largely praises the performance of Christopher Walken as the villain Reed Thimple. Throughout the review, the Critic is hassled constantly by Tamara, Malcolm and Jim (the latter two dressed as mad scientists), who believe he is crazy for enjoying The Country Bears and want to send him to a mental institution, but Malcolm and Jim eventually accept the Critic's final thoughts on the film and decide to send Tamara to the mental institution instead, after she accidentally confesses that she doesn't like The NeverEnding Story.

Doug WalkerDoug WalkerMarch 6, 2019 (2019-03-06)

The Critic reviews X-Men (2000) to begin X-Month, while taking care of a young teenager (Malcolm), who's a big Marvel fan, left behind by Uncle Lies (Doug) and Aunt Despair (Tamara). The two spend the entirety of the review debating the film, its impact on superhero films, and its differences from the comics and the 1990s cartoon. The Critic gives praise to Hugh Jackman's performance as Wolverine, several moments that are faithful to the comics, and Magneto's plotline involving him using a machine to turn humans into mutants, but criticizes several plotholes in the story, lack of character development from characters such as Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey, the CGI visual effects, lack of color, and the two climactic fight sequences, finding them underwhelming. Special criticism is reserved for several of the film's changes from the comics, particularly the character of Rogue (despite saying that she's not a bad character and has some decent depth), and the lack of screen time and relationship between Wolverine and Sabretooth; those two elements are debated heavily by NC and Malcolm, with NC at first trying to accept the changes while Malcolm heavily criticizes them. Throughout the review, NC's eagerness and acceptance of the movie soon fades away as he finds more issues, while Malcolm's criticism also fades away to appreciate other moments, though they eventually both agree that while this film is not a perfect adaptation of X-Men, it did succeed in giving superhero movies the opportunity to become blockbuster hits again, and leading to more successful films in the years that followed.

The Critic continues "X-Month" by reviewing X2: X-Men United (2003). Despite its status by many fans as one of the most acclaimed X-Men films, the Critic admits to not finding the film that great. While giving praise to the opening action sequence, the acting performances, and several other action scenes, he criticizes the slow pacing and multitude of characters, and also repeats his criticisms he had with the first X-Men film, including plotholes, several differences from the comics, and lack of character development (especially again for Storm, Cyclops and Jean Grey). Special criticism is reserved for Jean Grey's sacrifice at the film's climax, mostly for his belief that there were other potential ways the death could have been avoided. Overall, he finds the sequel not great, but not bad either, ultimately labeling it as a mostly harmless superhero film.

419"X-Men: The Last Stand"Doug Walker, Malcolm Ray, Tamara ChambersDoug WalkerDoug WalkerMarch 20, 2019 (2019-03-20)

The Critic continues "X-Month" by reviewing X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). Although this film is considered by many fans to be one of the worst X-Men movies, the Critic admits he has a soft spot for it and likes it more than the first two films, mainly because he felt that while the first two films were okay to him, this one was more big, action-packed and hugely entertaining. He praises the action scenes, especially the climactic fight scene between the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants, visual effects, Storm's slightly bigger part and character development, the story's complex morals, questions and dilemmas it raises, and gives large praise for Kelsey Grammer as Beast, considering him the third most-realized X-Men character in film alongside Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Xavier. However, he fully understands as to why several fans don't like it, criticizing the whole subplot involving Jean Grey as the Phoenix, finding it underdeveloped, underwhelming and too different from the comics (despite admitting that several scenes of the Phoenix's rampage are legit menacing), the Juggernaut's infamous line, "I'm the Juggernaut, bitch!", the love triangle between Rogue, Iceman and Kitty Pryde, and the lack of screen time for the mutant Angel. Special criticism is reserved for the entirety of the film's ending, which the Critic finds it ultimately delivers nothing despite the huge upgrade in action, story and morals. The Critic ultimately agrees with several fans that this is a bad movie, with a less than perfect story structure in comparison to the first two, but still finds it more entertaining than the first two largely for taking more risks, adding dozens of mutant characters, and upgrading the action scenes and compelling ideas to the point where it nearly represents the X-Men he's more familiar with.

First Viewing:

422"Tom and Jerry and the Wizard of Oz"Doug WalkerDoug WalkerDoug WalkerApril 10, 2019 (2019-04-10)

The Critic reviews Tom and Jerry and the Wizard of Oz (2011). He finds it suffers several of the same issues as Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, again heavily criticizing the combination of Tom and Jerry and The Wizard of Oz, the fast motion of the animation (despite saying the animation overall is decent), and notes that all the scenes and moments taken from The Wizard of Oz are delivered poorly. However, he gives praise to all scenes and moments involving Tom and Jerry, giving good marks to the slapstick and several moments of comedy. He ultimately labels it slightly better than Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, while finding the film to not be a great adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, but ultimately enjoyable for giving him the feeling that the film is basically The Wizard of Oz trapped in the world of Tom and Jerry.

429"Mary Poppins Returns"Doug Walker, Tamara Chambers,
Aiyanna Wade
Doug WalkerDoug WalkerMay 29, 2019 (2019-05-29)

The Critic reviews Mary Poppins Returns (2018). He considers the film to be a watered-down version of the original film, which he loves very much, criticizing the lack of originality in the story, the messages and morals not being as great as the original, lack of character development for the three children, and for copying a lot of elements from the original, ending up describing this film as a shallow and complex film made just to entertain kids, in contrast to the original film, which he praises as the very definition of deep and simple. Special criticism is reserved for the film's villain portrayed by Colin Firth, considering his character the film's biggest issue for greatly interfering with its story, and the major cause of the film not following all the way with several potential ideas. Despite this, he does praise the acting performances, the songs, the visuals, the potential story ideas, the cameos from Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury, and the traditional animation for still holding up even after all these years. Throughout the review, the Critic is confronted and watched over by an evil version of Mary Poppins (Aiyanna), who has taken over Disney and is using her powers to snap the classic Disney films out of existence and release Disney's recent sequels and reboots instead. In a parody of the climactic scene from Avengers: Endgame, just as the evil Poppins is about to snap the Critic out of existence for stating his final opinion about the film (as well as Disney's recent sequels and reboots), the original Mary Poppins (Tamara) appears from a dozen portals along with an army of classic Disney characters to fight and defeat the evil Poppins.

Doug WalkerDoug WalkerJuly 10, 2019 (2019-07-10)

The Critic reviews the live-action television film Kim Possible (2019), based on the animated series of the same name. Before the review, the Critic participates in a reenactment made by a sleazy director (Malcolm) of Kim Possible, with him as Dr. Drakken, Aiyanna as Kim, Heather as Shego, and Tamara playing a new character named Athena, though the reenactment is delivered with less-than-stellar one-liners and odd plot points, to which the Critic stops the reenactment and begins the review. Outside of considering the film's versions of Dr. Drakken, Shego, and Ron Stoppable to be decent (though thinks Ron's character in the film was too over-the-top), and compliments some good jokes, he nonetheless finds the film to not do any justice to the cartoon, criticizing the performances, the film's focusing more on female empowerment rather than telling a good story (which is what the show was great at doing), unfunny jokes, the out-of-nowhere cameo of Christy Carlson Romano, lack of cool gadgets, Rufus the mole rat's lack of screen-time and impact, and that the film's primary focus is on Kim's high school experiences rather than her crimefighting. Special criticism is reserved for the plot point of Kim losing confidence in herself and becoming jealous of her new best friend Athena, which the Critic calls unfitting to the type of character Kim Possible was in the show. In the end, the Critic considers it to be not just a bad adaptation of the show, but another bad Disney Channel Original Movie that gives into its focus on delivering an extremely popular message, an issue he has with other Disney Channel Original Movies, though does say that he thinks it wasn't the intention of many of those films, it just feels like it to him. He then goes back to the reenactment, where he gets payback against Malcolm, Aiyanna and Tamara by siccing them the characters from Totally Spies!, causing their heads to explode.

436"The Lion King 1994"Doug WalkerDoug WalkerDoug WalkerJuly 17, 2019 (2019-07-17)
The Critic reviews The Lion King (1994), in honor of its 25th anniversary. The review starts with a cold open involving a parody of Bob Iger (Doug) describing Disney's less-than-great works, including the live-action remakes, and announcing a new "project" which involves turning The Lion King from live-action back to animation. After that, the Critic reveals that even as a child, he never considered The Lion King a flawless masterpiece unlike many, but still found it a really good film. He praises the story, the scope, the emotion, and several of the characters (particularly Ed the hyena), and gives high praise to the animation, the "Circle of Life" intro, the song "Be Prepared", the whole wildebeest stampede sequence, and the film's message, which he considers a unique one in many Disney animated features. However, he criticizes Matthew Broderick's performance as Simba, several of the film's humorous lines, and the characters of Timon and Pumbaa, although he says he doesn't find the characters bad, he just didn't find them that hilarious in the film (although he says they were more hilarious in their spin-off TV show). Special criticism is reserved for the song "Hakuna Matata", which he finds extremely annoying and contradictory to the film's message, and the ultimate playout of the film's message during the climax (in which Simba attempts to confront Scar and take responsibility for his role in Mufasa's death, but the lionesses show reluctance in supporting Simba as he gets overpowered by Scar, and only do so when Simba learns the real truth and forces Scar to reveal it), which he feels is a disservice to the film's message. Ultimately, he concludes that, despite his issues, the film is still one of Disney's most big and memorable films worthy of the acclaim it received over the years, even stating that he believes the film's message still got across with many people despite his criticism of its playout, and that the possible box office success of its recent remake (which he hates) is a testament to how strong the film's popularity really is.

Doug WalkerDoug WalkerSeptember 18, 2019 (2019-09-18)

The Critic reviews Pink Floyd – The Wall (1982). The video begins with Corey Taylor meditating in a hotel room, when a hotel maid walks up to the door to find a sign reading, "ROCK STAR PONDERING, DON'T YOU DARE F@#*ING KNOCK!" Taylor is then shown opening YouTube on the television and starts watching a review of Pink Floyd - The Wall in the normal Nostalgia Critic format, when he gets a flashback to when his younger self, played by Taylor's son, Griffin Taylor, saw the movie for the first time despite its mixed reviews from movie critics ("When the Wall Broke Free, Part 1"). The maid, scared of the sign, knocks on the door anyway, and the Critic breaks through the glass on the television and sings directly to Taylor, telling him that this will be no ordinary Nostalgia Critic episode but rather a parody of The Wall ("In the Floyd"). Taylor then gets another flashback to his first time watching The Wall after finding a VHS tape of the movie in his father's computer desk, thus inspiring him to pursue a career in music ("When the Wall Broke Free, Part 2"). Soon, a mysterious shadow is shown, soon cutting to another flashback to when Taylor was in high school and is judged for liking the movie ("Corey!"). The flashback continues, but the Critic shows up and makes his first point on the flaws of the movie, including the "Another Brick in the Wall, Part 2" scene, which he sees as a mere complaint of how high school is tough ("We Need More Victimization"). Eventually, when two of the students notice a train showing other students being deported to a "horrible place" and find it problematic due to how easily the viewers could connect it to the Holocaust, a giant Critic looks down and tries to convince them that it's not a World War II reference, only to inadvertently announce the next song is about World War II ("So Long, Weird Song"). He then goes into a medley of "slow, mopey" songs which Taylor keeps fast-forwarding through and then falls asleep ("Is There Anybody Who Cares?"). The hotel crew comes into the room to try to wake him up, but to no avail ("Comfortably Dumb"), when he is placed in a garage. He wakes up from his sleep only to have another vision where he sees himself as the target of an echo chamber, but says that the scene can also apply to anyone that the Internet hates ("In the Floyd (Again?)"). The echo chamber is then encouraged to start posting about the victim on social media in an attempt to make a change for society ("Waiting for the Point"), but then Taylor is then broken out of his vision when the shadow he sees earlier comes back. A crowd then shows up to complain about how the movie is "too long" ("Bring the Runtime Down"), until Taylor finally meets the Critic, who tries to tell him the deeper meaning of the movie ("The Deeper Meaning") until he is interrupted by a phone call from Sam Fennah asking if he has found his original character, Lucy Lacemaker, around. It is revealed that the hidden shadow Taylor and the Critic have been seeing throughout the review is actually Lacemaker, who informs the Critic that the surreal characters deserve way more development than the movie gave. When the Critic doesn't quite understand, Lacemaker brings Fennah's other original characters along to sing a song to deliver her message ("Fennah's The Trial"), until Lacemaker informs the Critic to "tear down the wall", until he punches a hole in a giant wall, only to find Taylor has fallen asleep again. He then gives up trying to tell Corey what he was going to say before Fennah interrupted him, and then Taylor complains about not getting a line or a song in the entire review. The Critic then refuses to give his honest opinion about the movie because since the movie ended on such an open vagueness, it would only make sense that the review does so as well. This angers Taylor, saying that this is the opposite of a review, thus causing the Critic to admit he liked the movie despite being "a little full of itself." He then tries to find out how to end the video, until Taylor ends it by singing the SpongeBob SquarePants theme song.

Note: This review received primarily negative responses from both fans of the movie and various viewers, ending up becoming Channel Awesome's most disliked video on YouTube.[5][6][7][8][9]
446"Aladdin 2019"Doug WalkerDoug WalkerDoug WalkerSeptember 25, 2019 (2019-09-25)

The Critic reviews Aladdin (2019). Already having mixed-to-negative thoughts on all previous Disney live-action remakes in spite of their constant acclaim and box office success, the Critic considers Aladdin just another film in that lineup he doesn't find to be great, though he again encourages many people to continue loving it if they do. While praising several of the visuals, Jasmine's fresh story arc and character development, and the updated music score and delivery on several of the songs (particularly "Arabian Nights" and "Friend Like Me"), he criticizes Marwan Kenzani's performance as Jafar, the comedic moments, overuse of CGI (particularly on the Genie), finds Mena Massoud hit-and-miss as Aladdin (criticizing his acting, but praising his dancing skills and sounding like the original character), the climactic scene involving Iago as a giant roc instead of Jafar as a giant snake, and the plot point involving another unseen city called Shirabad. He's also extremely mixed on Will Smith's performance as the Genie, criticizing the scenes where the Genie is in his blue form and delivering some over-the-top comedic moments, finding those uncomfortable, but finding the moments where the Genie is in human form okay. Special criticism is reserved for the film's live-action delivery of many of the story's memorable moments in comparison to the animated original (the same special criticism he has with all of Disney's remakes), and the final dance sequence during the end credits containing a style that's more of a Bollywood film, an aspect he wishes the rest of the film had.
