I don't know anything about Ralph but I did watch his take on it and it was just him pulling faces and saying "this sucks" and "why does this exist" over and over. Do people like Ralph? Does he indeed make movies and are they any better than the stuff he's shitting on? Because that being my only viewing of him I'm not impressed.
From what I know, he made one movie which sucked, but I guess it gained him the "I acknowledge it sucked therefore Iam immune to critique" type attitude. Then again he's part of the trio with IHE and ADUM YMS so make of that what you will

Once Ralph made a video on it, the meme died a horrific death
It wasn't a meme. That would imply people were doing this as part of a joke. This was people calling out Doug for 40 minutes of incompetent fuckery and failing to understand The Wall on even the most basic levels. It's a movie with a big following, so of course a lot of people are gonna be upset when somebody misrepresented the film THIS badly for the sake of "comedy".

You can count the amount of good movies made by YouTubers on one hand, and every film of his I've seen seem to go out of their way to have as many student film cliches in them as possible.

So no.

My buddy who was in one of his high school movies and I were browsing though the Lover Kickstarter page as 1.) He contributed to it, and 2.) It was well over a year since it was supposed to be due at that point. One update made us laugh our asses off at how self-aggrandizing and delusional it was that he thought it could get it into a serious film festival.

although I'd also include Life in a Day from about 9 years ago, which was a neat experiment.

Ah the RLM defense. Difference being I don't hate RLM and give them a pass because at least their analysis is on point most of the time. Doesn't sound like I'm missing much with Ralph so I won't bother watching any of his other vids.

He did a couple of videos talking shit about reality shows, those were pretty good. Overall I'm not fond of his videos, as they're more analytic than entertaining.

As a Ralph/RLM/IHE fan I concur with them being more analytic than entertaining. It's what defines their channel, they don't rely solely on in-your-face humour or jumpy random stuff like Jontron. Everyone has their charms. His other vids are targeting generally weird internet/TV content like The Nutshack, SMOSH, Ghost/Sasquatch/Restaurant detective shows so unless you're looking for open heckling with immediate honest criticism you really won't miss much. I can't speak for his vidya on Marvel or superhero movies cuz not interested in those franchises at all tho.

For this instance however I must say he came across as kinda bored and condescending. His review of NC's The Wall felt like a long annoyed huff, presumably because he's got knowledge of making movies and didn't expect anything but failure from Doug. Ralph is more palatable on films he targets with no expectations, like "Love on a Leash" or "The Bye-Bye Man".

Watched a few of Ralph's videos after seeing The Wall one and he's fine. Not offensively awful but not missing out either. May be an odd complaint but his audio is all over the fucking place so sometimes you barely hear him then suddenly your ears get blown out.

These are those same people who wanted a CA musical in 2012.
Linkara's reviews are the same garbage down to the "occassionally review manga" as a stand-in for Doug's "occassionally review oddball shit" like The Wall. It's read aloud instead of showing fragments of the film, making nitpicky observations and pretending to/getting shit wrong to prove points and make fucking terrible jokes peppered with skits. The only difference is the autism level for your average Doug review is wildly inconsistent but always unfunny, with Linkara it's almost guaranteed to be the same Mary Sue tirade building up to a laughable "storyline".
Also, Linkara thinks he’s pretty much better than Doug in every way, and after #ChangeTheChannel, he acts like he has a moral high ground.
