This was one of the most pathetic things I've ever read in my life. literally couldn't even laugh it just made me depressed. I understand that channel awesome had a pretty loyal fanbase but holy shit how do you care this much about failing to make it on a website 8 years past it's prime that was known as a laughing stalk cringefest even when it was briefly "popular".
An inflated sense of self worth, though Linkara May be worse in that regard.

Seriously. Your entire story is that you worked a shitty job and were being employed by some giant assholes. It's not anywhere near as horrific or as devastating as he's describing it.

I really don't like Doug or Michaud, but the more these idiots continue to wine about their failed crusade makes me so furious because I now have to defend those two.

Also, for as much as they want Doug driven off the Internet, Doug has done a pretty good job of ruining his stock on his own .

Fun thing happened today: apparently Obscurus Lupa and Linkara raged on about Doug and his approaches to anniversaries: https://kiwifarms.net/threads/allison-pregler-obscurus-lupa-movie-nights.52224/post-6364046



Though it was later revealed to be a troll who was taking shots at Doug:https://kiwifarms.net/threads/allison-pregler-obscurus-lupa-movie-nights.52224/post-6367045

E-Rod should know as a film student/teacher that second to people that make shitty productions are the people that bitch too much. Our work makes us deal with people we don't like regularly and suffer for it but you don't see this faggotry from low paying assistance crews.

And this is the guy that claims to champion fans of stuff that you’d find on a “nerd culture” website and fanbases that hate The Big Bang Theory, seems like he thinks really highly of his opinions. Also, for all this talk of “Doug rejected the advice of those who went to film school”, the anniversary films seem (for the most part) made by someone who knows what they’re doing. And yet #ChangeTheChannel likes to paint Doug as Tommy Wiseau levels of incompetent.

Why do I have this weird suspicion that the whole "film student/teacher" is just a load of bullshit that he made up in hopes of pimping himself that he knows his shit and is better than Doug. I dunno, just for a guy who'd you think taught film class or studied it, he'd least have some basic knowledge of making good angles. But, you watch his videos and every angle is just bland as hell and almost amateur level.

Fucker probably went to state community college and got a Fine Arts degree while the program was still in Engieneering.

I'd say that would be closer to the truth, also "involved in 300 movies"..mmm..yeaah..pretentious art student films or amateur student films don't count. It's about as legit as claiming you're a movie critic..oh waaait....

Maybe he's the mop up guy for a porn studio.

Seriously, if I took a film class and learned it was being taught by a guy who was bottom tier at Channel Awesome, the guy even other CA autists made fun of and who couldn't pull in Matthew Buck numbers, and has a the rapid helium-fueled voice of a talking chihuahua on crack in some terrible CGI movie on top of that, I'd immediately demand my money back. If it was a junior high or high school class, I'd still demand my money back.

I know it's popular to say "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" but there should be a limit to how much someone can't do something before they don't get to teach it either. Learning how to make films from Eric Rodriguez is like learning how to cook from Bob Chipman.

Linkara has LightBringer and his Twitter, and Doug has...a lot of things, but does anyone know of anything by ERod in terms of output that shows he’s not as good as he thinks he is?

Well there is his shitty reviews where he portrays bad movie directors as super villains (when he portrayed George Lucas as an evil mastermind set to destroy fandoms) and screams over the fact there are celebrity cameos (he literally sperged about it in his review of Robots when I used to watch his garbage).

I know he also got mad that he didn’t get some superpowers in the 10th anniversary special that would've came out if not for #CTC.

Yeah, it's called The Blockbuster Buster. A shittier, poor man's cross between Atop the Fourth Wall and the Nostalgia Critic. And when you're a poor man's version of those, you're so poor that homeless people are tossing money at you out of pity.

Anything that's not an internet review show ripoff of other internet review shows that weren't very good to begin with? Well the only clue that I know of is his IMDB filmography page. Most of it is Channel Awesome and CTC shit, and whoever keeps the page updated is clearly trying to pad it out as much as possible, including credits for archive footage in CTC documentaries. I suspect it might be E-Rod himself.

The non-CA related stuff:

  • A 1999 film called "College Girls" that's apparently some kind of sex film and says it was made in the Philippines. It has no info, no images related to it, no nothing, but starred some actresses that were in other sleazy shit. E-Rod supposedly got 6th billing as "Eric" but considering the movie is in Tagalog, I'm pretty sure that this is actually someone with the same name, not him.

  • The Venomonth of Horrors- This credit says it's a "TV series" but it's actually just a Youtube show by our old pal Cinematic Venom, who E-Rod stabbed in the back over CTC, so this isn't any more legitimate than the Channel Awesome shit.

  • A 2019 film called "I Got the Hook Up 2" that has a 3.2 out of 10 and looks like a direct to streaming piece of shit. E-Rod apparently played "Goon/Pedestrian" assuming this isn't another case of an actor with the same name getting miscredited as him. Eric Rodriguez is a pretty common name, after all.

That's all the evidence we have of E-Rod's prolific film career. Truly the proud legacy of a master. He's probably counting every single credit he gives himself for every episode of Blockbuster Buster (writer, directer, producer, actor) as a separate "project" to get that 300 number.

When it comes to E-Rod's content, I will never forget that I was convinced it was shit when he stated at the beginning of a video that he thought How the Grinch Stole Christmas was a good movie. Well, that and his voice. God fuck that voice.

I knew it was shit the moment he started speaking.
