I think Doug's fanbase being younger is also how he can get away with pretending to know anything about film. There's really nothing wrong with doing movie reviews as just a hobbyist, obviously, but the way he and Rob analyze film, compounded with their own attempts at filmmaking? The lack of knowledge really shows.
Hell, even though Lindsay is a total mess, her analysis is leagues better because she actually went to film school.

That's part of the immaturity of Doug and Rob. It feels like they wanted to get bigger and better and they wanted to achieve greater things, but they didn't want to put in the proper work. They seemed to be convinced that they were great because they achieved internet fame, but never developed their skills.

I mean look at Demo Reel. They wanted to transition to doing a "real" show and not just a review series, but didn't up their game at all. Guys, at least hire a writer to develop the idea. At the very, barebones least, read a friggin textbook on how to shoot this shit!

I thought the purpose of Demo Reel was to try and improve a movie in a comedic way. The core problem though runs as the few minutes of drek I saw was just random pop culture reference to pop culture reference without keeping on point.

Neither of those, its more about the fact that she is a vindictive liar and a sjw cunt that pretends to be a good person when in reality she is as greedy as a female dsp.
Nah man she is a great person, she's a fat disabled feminist, that automatically means she's a good person!

And more importantly Doug doesn't want to listen to anyone, it's been mentioned here that while shooting TBF he was breaking the 180 degree rule and flipped his lid. It just shows me how immature he really is.

I think the biggest shock I've gotten from all this is learning what a steadfast bro Linkara is. From what everyone is saying he's been working behind the scenes to help everyone out and he's been giving support to the other people involved. He might be a dirty little dickslut with an irritating voice, but he seems like a pretty good guy.

Yeah, I agree. Linkara is a weirdo in his beliefs and a cow in his own way, but he seems to be a nice and decent person overall. Out of everyone who has a thread on this site, he's probably one of the few I wouldn't mind being friends with in real life.

Just because Lewis has lolcow traits (and boy does he have a lot of them) doesn't automatically make him "worst person ever". Especially with the shit's that come to light over the past few months over CA and all. And even with all the mocking, I honestly wouldn't mind hanging out with him too, oddly enough.

First thing I thought of. I actually wondered if Doug hadn't directly taken the idea from there before figuring that -despite the show not really being that obscure- Doug probably had never heard of it. Didn't realize he had talked about it before.
Totally.
Nostalgia Critic = AVGN/"Daffy Duck"/Mst3k (possibly/probably)
Demo Reel = Home Movies
Pop Quiz Hot Shot = Double Dare

It's not that subtle.

And Lupa went on a tweeting spree thanking everyone for some reason, even Brad despite him being the sole holdout (with Larry).

"didnt end up changing"

Bumping the site from 38ish producers to 3 in two weeks isn't changing the channel? The damn things on life support, what the hell else could change at this point aside from the site going down permanently?

I remember when I was addicted to Doug's content. I felt so Smurt watching his film reviews and then blindly requoting them with no ability to concieve my own critical opinions of film and media. After gamergate I fell away from the site. Doug's skits started to annoy me something proper, and the way he tried to be this preachy voice of reason while also being a loud Daffy Duck character was irking my soul (Case and point: Ghostbusters 2k16) If this isnt the preachiest shit ever. As for the chez apacolypse crowd I immediately noticed how SJW-y they were. I noticed how Insane JesuOtaku was, and after I myself managed to grow past my stupid fuck immaturity phase where i kinda (shamed to admit) needed these voices. The childhoods they refused to leave was my first and biggest warning. But once my attitude on Nerd culture matured, i noticed just how sad and causeless their lives look.

Surely our purpose in life isn't just to yell at children's movies. Why not use these talents and fans to make something great? make our own good movies, where we try and match hollywood aestehtic. where we try and give them a run for their money instead of just being giant recipricles of culture themselves. The time of the Angry nerd reviewer is over.
