The video itself is very bland and came off like Doug had never seen the show and was quoting a wikipedia article throughout. Whether this is the case or not, either way it doesn't reflect well on the video and comes off as lazy.I mean, I love Duckman. It was one of my favorite shows from that time period (I actually just rewatched it recently)...not sure I'd enjoy an NC video about it though.
It was specifically the last straw for Phelous, wasn't it? If I remember right, he was advised to do deliberately shitty special effects by the Walkers to add to the parody feel or something, and then they promptly about-faced and said that they'd asked him for the best effects stuff he could do, and this was all that he could be arsed to come up with so they had to use it. Phelous certainly became very salty about CA all of a sudden, outright dismissive of To Boldly Flee in at least one review, and struck out on his own soon afterwards.I think there are a lot of reasons that they'd be slighted by To Boldly Flee more than the other anniversaries.
It felt like Doug was easily amazed and was thinking the show is a super clever masterpiece that is responsible for today's adult animated shows.The video itself is very bland and came off like Doug had never seen the show and was quoting a wikipedia article throughout.

If he does that, I can already see it being The Wall 2.0. Remember, he said that garbage anus of a model from the original trailer was actually appealing on some level and that Paramount taking the time to fix it made the movie "less interesting".So what are the odds of him doing a clipless review of the Sonic movie?
Because James will and always has been 100% more professional than Doug EVER was. Think about it, James has never put himself in a situation where he would be screwed over or he can't get out of. He's been making movies, commercials, videos way WAY before AVGN was even a thing, through that he gained experience in what and what not to do. Especially if you're trying to build a reputation. Doug never got this, he never went through the learning phases that James had to, thus never learning how to function in that circle. Its the same thing I said about ALL TWGTG contributors. They all feel like college students stuck in that mindset even in their 30s' They dont mature or grow only regress and stagnate. That is Doug in a nutshell. A college kid who made it big without having to understand what to do once you're there.He was always the top guy. Even if his peak years have past and he’s putting the Nerd on the back burner, James Rolfe has always had Doug beat, and given #CTC, it’s only been further cemented.
Yeah this video more or less proves how uneducated they are when it comes to Sonic. They missed how the mushroom world was a reference to Sonic & Knuckles amd just assumed it was a Mario reference.Wow, this is yet another instance of the Walkers just not fully understanding the source material. They're apparently unaware that Sonic games are still being made. Like, anyone even remotely familiar with Sonic will at least know SEGA still makes games for it. You have to be living under a rock to think that.
Also, leave it to Doug to remind us that he utterly despises Pokemon 24/7. Like, I get Detective Pikachu wasn't a perfect movie, but it definitely was a hit with the fanbase. Doug just can't seem to get the fact that "simple fun" movies can both exist and be popular. Chris Stuckmann said it best; "This is a movie that's very easy to pick apart if you're looking to do that." Stuckmann correctly assumed that people like the Walkers and CinemaSins will bash this movie based on very simple standalone nitpicks that can be easily overlooked.
I can't wait to see the backlash the eventual clipless review will get.
Doug's only real knowledge comes from the 90's cartoons. Rob said a better idea was to have the humans go into Sonic's world, even though that is literally just the latter half of Sonic X.Yeah this video more or less proves how uneducated they are when it comes to Sonic. They missed how the mushroom world was a reference to Sonic & Knuckles amd just assumed it was a Mario reference.
