    Actually, that score? It's entirely random sound effects stolen from Forbidden Planet, with no thought put into where's appropriate for them! Also that bit at the end is pretty obviously footage from a completely different film (their spacesuits have suddenly shape shifted, the same way the model ship was doing constantly)! It's like they just run out of things to do and decided some random footage of guys in spacesuits would constitute a climax!

    By the way; why did the Chinese blow up the world again?

    "By the way; why did the Chinese blow up the world again?"

    Because they are (tum, dum, dum, dum) EEEVIL!

    And after watching this I can honestly say - I would fall asleep during this movie.

    Why couldn't they have had a mad scientist blow up the world and the astronaughts just happened to be on a scouting mission when it happened?

    I know it's clich├ęd to death, but hey, Dr Insano is a mad scientist, and he has a orbital death ray, so why did they go with "the Chinese" rather than some nutball inventor who wanted to destroy humanity, resurrect them as cyborg-zombies and have them fight undead monsters, cloned dinosaurs and robots in his gladitorial arena?

    Oh, right, that's called using common sense, rather than insulting and stereotyping another race, and gender.

    This was made a bit after the time when everyone thought the 'commies' were going to destroy the world. Back then everyone turned China into the bad guy, and the habit didn't go away for a long time. (Still goes on)

    Doomsday Machine was an unfinished film from 1967 that was completed in 1972 with stock footage and poorly handled new footage. It wasn't fortunate enough to find its way into the hands of Bruno Mattei. Because I think we can all agree that what this film needed to fill out the running time... was ninjas.

    One of the actors from the press conference is Mike Farrell from M*A*S*H.

    I did a double-take when I heard his voice. How on earth could he have thought this movie was a good idea?

    I didn't notice in this video, but according to IMDB Casey Kasem is in this movie, too.

    Wow, what a sexist and boring movie :P I don't think I'd be able to sit through it. Loved the review though! :D

    So what if it was a DVD exclusive?

    Gee how I hate entitled people. Times change, prices drop, things stop being exclusive. I bought plenty of software products for full-price which are now dirt-cheap or even free.. should I be spending my days complaining about it? And why isn't Doug allowed to get revenue from his intellectual property years after he offered it as exclusive?

    Doug, thanks for the video. It's always nice to see NC again. Sad, but nice nevertheless. :)

    Edit: So yes, that reporter was that guy from M*A*S*H! Knew it!

    I agree 100%, how many movies do we see on TV for free that people had to pay to get tickets for when the film first came out???
  • Lazaruss
    Nice to see you again NC ! We've missed you.

    And a very funny review.

    I agree! I Keep playing him as well as Donny Dupre (i Think that's how it's spelt) Doug!
  • Mr. Sirus  - Thank you, partner.

    I was thinking about buying the DVD now that Nostalgia Critic has ended, to get my fill of entertainment. Thanks to this, I don't have to spend a dime.

    You are a good man, partner, but your business model could use some sprucing up. You could have monopolized on the absence of your old character.
  • Floweramon
    He's getting money out of this, as long as people watch the ads at the beginning and end of the videos. It's been long enough that he's made money off of people who would have bought the DVD, and now he can make money off of people who wouldn't but wanted to see the content.
  • Bloodrealm
    You don't really even have to watch the ads.If there isn't a skip button, I just browse the comments or grab a drink til the ad is over!
  • Jasbond  - dvd exclusive
    avatar
    baba44713, dedicated NC fans who actually bought the dvd's yah, why not keep it dvd exclusive? That way the dvd's have their proper value imo. It makes for more incentive to buy them. Doug! sort it! lol
  • fanime1

    So they can watch the DVDs without turning on their computers? Plus, don't you guys get commentaries at least. Lastly, a real fan will just be happy to give Doug money. I know I would. I'm actually going to still buy the DVDs even though the exclusives are released because that's how big of a fan I am.
  • Majicou
    You can tell that between beginning and finishing the movie, the filmmakers (I'm not entirely sure they were the same people, but whatever) saw 2001 and said "We can do that!" Sort of like when Harold P. Warren met Stirling Silliphant and decided that hell, a fertilizer salesman could make a movie, too. So they half-assed (quarter-assed, more like) an ending where people move slowly and encounter an alien intelligence. After all, those are the two and only two qualities that make 2001 a great movie, right? Right?

    I strongly recommend Cinematic Titanic's riff of this movie. Making the unwatchable watchable!

    So why exactly Doug doing new Nostalgia Critic episodes when he still, well releasing new episodes? ;)
  • helix
    avatar
    Because they aren't new, they were just not put up on the site. He's still done making new episodes as in, writing and filming them.

    I have to admit, one thing that really bothered me was that detail that they needed to lose weight by getting rid of four of the passengers. Uh, we can plainly see a lot of equipment on board. Why can't they jettison some of that instead? There's also that weird cop out ending. It;s so obvious that film makers have no clue as to how to end this movie so they opted to just pull this out of their ass. What a load. The only good thing I can say about this movie is that it did provide plenty of comedy for this NC review and it's honestly my favorite DVD only NC review. I know you retired the character, but I would still like to see more NC reviews in other That Guy With The Glasses DVD volumes.

    This movie could help insomniacs get to sleep. There only seems to be a couple of interesting scenes throughout the whole movie. The rest are just boring, corny, or insulting. No wonder this movie is in the public domain. Who the hell would want it?

    I know that China was going through the Cultural Revolution at the time, but since this was the Cold War era, you'd think that the Soviet Union would be depicted as having a Doomsday Machine. However, they actually get a Soviet astronaut to join the American crew. I highly doubt that would have actually happened in the late 60s/early 70s. After all, the whole space race thing between the USA and USSR was because of the Cold War. Then again, as the Nostalgia Critic said, this movie does a BANG UP job in depicting how space exploration actually works.

    Critic! You reached out from the plot hole to gave us one more review. Sure it wasn't new but thank you. Now all you have to do is take over the body of Doug Walker and the infinite knowledge of the plot hole to make the greatest movie ever.

    Nostalgia Critic reviews have become like a drink of water in a barren desert; I hear the hallelujah chorus when I see one's been added.

    Chinese blew up the Earth? In the mid 70s? Even though social attitudes didn't appear to evolve past the 50s? Look, on the bright side, in 200 years Fallout 3 will happen.

    What the hell kind of an ending was that?!
  • bear4chubs  - i got a review for you Nostalgia Critic
    Hostess. why you ask? because it is going out of business. that's right no more Twinkies, no more Cupcakes, no more Mini Muffins, no more Zingers, no more Suzy Q's, no more Wonder Bread, no more Pudding Pie, no more Chocodile, no more Ding Dongs, no more sno balls, no more Donettes, no more Fruit Pies and no more Ho-Hos.

    please...PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE do a review on this!!

    The music in the opening credits? of this movie sounds like the opening music to "Alien" if it were recorded in a flushing toilet.

    Thank god that Ridley Scott made a couple of space movies where a woman who's tough as nails is the lead character.

    China didn't destroy Earth, it was Toho.

    18:26- Michael Bay can make this scene move faster while adding some shakiness to the camera and have it happen during a shootout with some aliens.

    The ending to this movie is more abrupt than the one in Skyline, except THAT film didn't have THE END, and I wasted 5 minutes of my life seeing if there was anything at the end of the credits when I got diddly squat.

    This movie is NOTHING like the Star Trek: TOS episode of the same name.
