So Doug remembered that there was an X-Men movie back in 2000.Aren't there like 6-7 reviews of it on youtube already done years ago?Has Doug really run out of material?I wish Doug would make an attempt at movies a bit outside his comfort zone like 'No country for old men' or 'Hell or high water'.I never see him review something like that.If Doug really wanted to mine new stuff he could go for those.

He made a video about the history of the fucking M&M's characters. He's clearly run out of material.

Meh, would be fine if he didn't go all MCU shill at times. Dated and unfaithful to the comics the X-Men (and Raimi Spiderman movies) would be, but if it weren't for them he wouldn't have his precious MCU in the first place. (Plus, the MCU is also unfaithful at times, but he doesn't bitch about that).

I guess I can expect for him to love the shit out of Captain Marvel.

Honestly, Doug always goes on and no about the Big Two Superheroes, but I feel he only knows them by watching some of their cartoons and movies and later common knowledge. By the way he acts or says things, or disregards characters, I feel like he's never opened a comic book in his life. Which is okay, if you're not into capeshit, but for someone who goes around calling himself an "X-Men/Batman" expert, it just rings hollow.
His brother reads and has a bunch of comics but I think Doug had admitted to not ever really reading comics. I'm not sure which comics Rob reads though, I'd have to go back to their old sibling rivalry videos to see his bookshelf but I remember there being a fair bit

If I'm gonna watch an internet review, it would be for one of two reasons
  • it's garbage and I want to see it torn apart
  • it's interesting and I want to see it analyzed
Doug falls firmly into the former. X-Men isn't garbage so I don't want to see it torn apart, and neither the film nor Dough are really deep enough to warrant the latter.

If Doug reviewed movies out of his comfort zone he’d go on about how pretentious those movies are which he has done before with arthouse movies he attempted to “review”

Doug ran out of material years ago. This was obvious when he reviewed Temple of Doom and Jurassic Park.

There's one trivial thing about Doug's review of The Happening that's always bothered me.

I haven't seen the film, but I've seen reviews, and my impression is that Wahlberg spends most of the film impersonating Mr. Rogers. He even does it when his character's teaching a high school class, which must be the most insulting and patronizing way to approach a bunch of students, but let that pass.

But the scene Doug really chooses to mock is one where an old woman goes insane and starts accusing him of wanting to kill her. And ... that's probably the only time where anyone would naturally sound like Mr. Rogers. Imagine yourself with a hysterical woman claiming you want to kill her, and you want her to calm down. I'll bet you sound like Mr. Rogers. Hell, Hicks and Ripley do it in Aliens when they meet Newt.

It's just kind of weird. Doug makes the point that Wahlberg's performance is ridiculous, which I happen to agree with (based on scenes I've watched without context) but chooses to pick on the scene where it actually makes sense.

Kind of the same thing in Blair Witch 2 where a character sounds like a little girl under circumstances where I, too, would sound like a little girl.
