    Is that ... A SERIOUS TONE?!

    Eh, I'll believe it when I see it. Bring on the poop jokes!

    Fuck yeah! It's about time we saw CR in one of these things!
  • Redbob86
    avatar
    Agreed, I was disapointed at first when after seeing so many crossovers I never saw CR, who is one of the Top 4 favorite reviewers of mine.

    But now I'm just pumped! Glad you could make it, Chad!

    CR? How about JO finally getting in? YES!!

    Pfft, no, the serious tone was the joke :D

    Look at the narration. Half of it is Nostalgia Critic's ego trip ;) And it's called "To Boldly Flee" :D
  • Bloodrealm
    Yeah, all the teasers are serious-toned.

    so when exactly will they start showing the episodes or parts of this? I will guess late July or August.

    ... well that was surpringsly omnious and epic :P

    I kinda figured a serious one would come along soon, I like the setup for this one though. Guess Mati isn't coming back though...
  • Wigs
    Fully expecting to see the ghost...no... the SPIRIT of Ma-Ti to reprise here...
  • mumbls

    In a way, that would have been similar to if there was a brief shot of Suede last year. That would be a serious spoiler.
  • redjirachi
    Black Lantern Ma-Ti, maybe?
  • Lightice
    He already did in the DVD extras...

    Considering this is comedy-driven site, I highly doubt that. There's been a moderately "serious" tone to all of the anniversary teasers thus far, and they've all shared the same goofy, comically amateur overtone. Doug loves to satirize seriousness in his trailers.

    Now that Noah has left, I was half hoping that they'd replace Spoony with Ashton Kutcher in this special. That's the protocol, right?
  • KingKaor555
    avatar
    No, Spoony left after they finished filming this. And according to some sources, mainly his forum's admins, he WILL be continuing as a reviewer, just independently. So, they will probably get slightly more...inapropriate, maybe.
  • secretsheik
    For all we know, this could be about all of them searching for the Necronomicon to revive Mati. (but we all know that Abyssion fro Tales of Symphonia has that)
  • MitchTacy

    I thought that NC had Chester A. Bum working on that. I wouldn't be surprised if Ma-Ti made a cameo in this special...ALIVE!
    DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!

    Most ominous part of the video, probably that -ish at the end....... But then again you are busy people so I can wait
  • Moon Spirit

    Wow, this surprising looks legitimately epic. But then again, we'll come full circle to its trailer, and we'll see how this special goes.
  • sirpycon

    oh my god this is the greatest trailer ever!!

    seriously it does look really good and I am really curious to see how it will be pulled off.

    Okay, so you know how Suburban Knights was sort of a drama-comedy? I can't help but wonder if this is going to be a straight-up drama. I mean, there has to be some comedy in there, but this was really serious and had a genuinely ominous feel to it. Well either way, I'm looking forward to it. :)
  • THOOM
    avatar
    It's called a teaser. You can't judge a 2 hour movie by a minute or less teaser, in whic the first half has "serious" music. That is the joke. Whatever it is, it will be good.
  • Bloodrealm
    All of the teasers have been serious like this. You can't really be expecting a straight-up, to-be-taken-completely- serious sequel to Kickassia and Suburban Knights.
  • ImitationJesus

    i CANNOT wait for this to release. but when it does, i'm gonna have to wait for each new installment of the story.
  • ladydiskette

    Wow, this is good, I so can't wait to see what is gong to happen. And usually I am not into Sci-Fi adventures.


    Squeee!
  • ErynCerise

    Looks like all that hard work has paid off. Trailer looks great, footage looks great, everyone in it looks great. Judging by the title and some of the facial expressions, I still expect a good deal of comedy, but the dramatic tone of this trailer gives me hope for a good, dramatic plot running underneath everything and keeping things together.

    To everyone involved: nice work, and I can't wait to see the fruits of your labour in full.
  • Clinton
    I doubt it'll be completely serious, this is TGWTG we're talking about.

    Hope the audio is better this year!

    Oh god, oh man, oh god, oh man, oh god...

    At first I was excited.

    Now I can't fucking wait!

    But I will, for I have learned the patience that must come before seeing what you guys can do with these incredibly ambitious projects. HOLY SHIT!!
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    The first anniversary (whatever it was called) wasn't very good, Kickassia had a neat premise but really bad humor, Suburban Knights was a leap forward, about as well written and funny as Scary Movie 4 (which isn't saying much), this looks about as impressive as an Asylum production so you guys are definitely moving up. Maybe in 3 more anniversaries we could get a good movie. I just find it odd that a bunch of people who mock terrible films haven't been able to make a legitimately good one.
  • JewWario
    avatar
    HA! You give us a budget that Asylum gets... and we'll make one great-ass movie. For the budget we had (free) I think this'll knock your socks off.

    And thank you sincerely for the compliments. If we can do Asylum quality NOW with no budget... imagine... JUST IMAGINE! :)
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Like I said a few more anniversaries and you guys could make a good movie. The point I'm getting at isn't budget though; special effects and such don't bother me. What I mean is a well developed script. You guys are all pretty decent actors but the writing has so far been pretty sub-par. I think the best writing you've had so far was in Suburban Knights, especially the monologues for Malachite (hope I spelled that right).
  • TheIrrehensibleTJ
    avatar
    ...Are you under the impression that scripts, the time it takes to make them, revise them and polish them, are free?
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Well considering writing a script is relatively simple. Let's see they probably get on their computer, write a draft, edit it, polish it up, maybe make a couple more drafts and then print copies to send to the other members that will be in the film. So yeah pretty free, minus the costs for paper, which still means it's cheap and that's assuming they actually print paper scripts rather than just e-mailing a finished one.

    I've written scripts before and know how the system works, scripts aren't very costly when it's written by the director and through him is already owned by the production company then it costs him and the company nothing, unless it's sent to an outside source for revision. Other than that, no, no it does not cost anything at all. Not for an independent film like they're making.
  • ZeroBeatXIII
    avatar
    I agree with you, although lets be fair here; the budget isnt "free", but regardless it shouldnt affect the writing
    The writing has gotten better but I wouldnt call it good yet, it really has felt like Scary Movie-esque. Theyve been alright internet videos but I get the feeling theyre going for somthing more.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Yeah I had that feeling that the budget wasn't free, just didn't really wanna voice it.
  • BooRat
    avatar
    Well JewWario was the one that said "free" 1st... just saying! XD
  • The Theory
    FREE?!... I already fear for the quality of the 3-D animated segment of the movie, which when I questioned it at the time, warranted the entire comment section had to be taken down from this: http:// thatguywiththeglasses.com /videolinks/ thatguywiththeglasses/ video-updates/34948- computer-effects-needed- for-4th-year-anniversary.

    So i can only guess how it will look (terribly)...

  • flamingoman

    If that's supposed to signify that I'm a whiny crybaby I say grow up. I can't have a legitimate critique of the thus far sub-par childish comedy films they've produced? Are these guys free of critique themselves or are you just a fanboy who doesn't know how to handle it when your favorite internet personalities are criticized for crappy films?

    The irony of the films being so bad is that these people are critics, who berate and tear apart films for being bad. Yet they go and make something like Kickassia which doesn't live up to their own standards. The writing is bad, the comic timing is bad, the pacing is bad, the cinematography is bad, the editing is bad, the acting ranges from pretty good to flat, especially with Phelous.

    Don't get me wrong, I like these guys and their work as internet reviewers, but they've failed time and again actually making a good movie. Like I said they've gotten better, and if they really are making these with absolutely no budget as JewWario implies then I give them credit for having pretty decent production values. Just because I'm a fan doesn't mean I have to enjoy every single thing they release, and just because you're a fan doesn't mean you have to go dishing insults when your internet heroes are critiqued for doing the same exact things they criticize.
  • Dexilan
    What he's getting at is this are no budget productions that aren't meant to be judged like actual movies. This is something everyone should know by now.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    I didn't know that no budget productions like this were intended to not be judged based on their quality. I've been wrong all this time and can clearly see that a sloppily made film gets away with murder because it had no budget and wasn't intended to be judged like an actual movie. So does that mean that Tommy Wiseau's The Room gets a free pass too? I mean the entire production of that film is basically the same as the production of any of their films. Or what about those Scott Shaw zen filmmaking movies Lupa talked about before, those shouldn't be judged too right?

    I'm sorry attempting to stave off any critique of these films by pointing out they "aren't meant to be judged like actual movies" is just a blanket excuse that holds no weight. All it is, is a feeble attempt to defend poorly written movies. It's like trying to defend Katy Perry because her stuff is intended to be poppy and stupid and shouldn't be judged like actual music.
  • DarkMessiah
    avatar
    Actually, yeah, The Room DOES get a free pass. That's why people love it so much. It's not meant to be taken seriously. You, on the other hand, seem to have this little twig wedged right in between your butt cheeks and can't seem to grasp the concept that this is all made in good fun and a treat for the viewers, not for Spoony-wannabes* to take too fucking serious.

    *Spoony pretty much hates any and every movie he's ever seen. He's a had a few positive reviews here and there, but most are him completely bashing it without even giving it a chance. Thus, you're a Spoony-wannabe.

    Also, the Katy Perry simile doesn't count because pop music actually tries to take itself serious. And the other movies or series you mentioned, they actually tried to take themselves serious. Chances are, TGWTG is giving this a serious tone with their usual antics added to the script, like they have every year, without actually trying to be like James Cameron or Quentin Tarantino (who make goofy shit all the time). Which means your point is invalid.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Tommy only claimed it wasn't meant to be taken seriously after people didn't take it seriously. The movie is bad regardless. I don't have a twig wedged in my butt cheeks these are just my opinions of the matter and I will again stress their films are getting better. Just because it's made for fun doesn't mean it can't be judged.

    Wait Spoony, I'm a Spoony wannabe because I posted one comment that criticized their original features? And wannabe is an implication that I'm trying to be like him, I'm nothing like him I've got my own opinions and don't hate every movie I've ever watched. I don't get how I'm any way being a Spoony wannabe when I've been civil and haven't been going off on every person that replies to me like a psychopath.

    Um, just because pop has taken itself seriously doesn't mean she is intended to be taken seriously so your objection to my simile is in itself invalid. Unless a music video where she's in Candy Land and Snoop Dogg has an army of gummy bears is meant to be taken seriously. My point isn't invalidated, whether or not these films aren't to be taken seriously changes nothing. The Leprachaun isn't supposed to be taken seriously yet the Critic and the Cinema Snob tear it apart.

    Just because it isn't intended to be taken seriously does not mean that it somehow transcends all other works of fiction and becomes immune to critique. That would mean Date Movie, Epic Movie, Scary Movie, Meet the Spartans, Vampires Suck, Breaking Wind and any number of crappy spoof movies -one of which I mentioned was given a scathing review by a member of this site- cannot be critiqued either as they are just fun movies that aren't to be taken seriously.

    It would explain why there are very few reviews for each one of those films out there.

    I get the argument you are trying to make. And I also get that you will never admit your logic is flawed when it comes to spoof movies. So we'll agree to disagree because you obviously seem stuck on the notion that every movie ever made in the past, present, and future must be reviewable. Just give it a rest, grab some popcorn/movie munchies (some people don't like popcorn, I understand that), and enjoy it for what it is.

    Then again.. I suppose fart jokes aren't for everyone. *shrug*
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    I've seen plenty of reviews for those movies; save for Breaking Wind. I can only assume the lack of a huge number of reviews is probably because most of those movies are terrible and professional critics probably don't want to waste their time watching that type of film.

    I don't think every movie needs to be high art or comparable to the works of Werner Herzog or David Lynch, much as I love their work and the work of other directors like them it would become very boring if every movie was made in that type of tone. Film wouldn't give us escapist value anymore. I do however think that a movie still needs to have a seal of quality so to speak, that it should be able to at least match other films in its genre. Take Airplane for instance; it uses low brow slapstick humor like Epic Movie, the difference between the two is Airplane uses slapstick well and Epic Movie is just insultingly bad.

    Like I said the TGWTG team has been getting better and better with each release, so chances are this one might actually be pretty good. I'm still gonna watch it regardless of my feelings toward the last ones. Hell I watched RLM's Feeding Frenzy and I KNEW that was going to end up being bad.

    I feel compelled to point out that The Room did, in fact, have a 6 million dollar budget, so it's not really in the same category.

    At all.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Most of which was out of Wiseau's own pocket so yeah kind of in the same category he just has deeper pockets than the TGWTG crew.
  • anonexistentuser
    The Room had an estimated budget of $6 million.
  • ZeroBeatXIII
    avatar
    Again, we all know they have a budget and are not doing this for free, but thats beside the point
    When indie films and youtube movies can out preform the anniversaries, you can see why no one judges because of the budget, but because of the poor writing.
    It all comes down to the writing, somthing the "no budget" cant excuse. Sububarn Knights was filled with pop culture references and jokes that didnt know when to stop, its a major problem Id like to see fixed in this
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Thank you, glad to see I'm not the only one who sees a problem with the jokes and writing.

    "I'm sorry attempting to stave off any critique of these films by pointing out they "aren't meant to be judged like actual movies" is just a blanket excuse that holds no weight."

    Do you heckle community theatre performances for not being Broadway-level?
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Depends on the the actors, but I'm not going to demonize it if it isn't Broadway. I was in a community theater performance of Little Women myself, and I'll be the first to admit I was the weakest part of the whole damn thing.

    Like I said to DarkMessiah, I don't expect everything to be high art or feel that independent projects have to meet the same standards as a big budget project. My whole point here is that their writing is bad. I don't expect an independent group to have the same production values as Hollywood, but I do expect a group that constantly points out bad writing, bad comic timing and bad editing in their reviews to y'know actually practice what they preach instead of falling victim to the things they complain about.

    I'm not basing this on budget, Transformers has a massive budget and it sucks. I'm basing this off of the quality of the filmmaking and the writing both of which don't require a budget.

    If you don't like the vids don't watch! The aniversery may be like a movie but we can't dismiss what it truely is. A free muti-part made for video streams. If you would look at this in a different perspective you would see while having tech problems so dose many made for tv movies . If there is a feeling I can compare it to is like seeing a classic doctor who on the PBS. It may be low budget but most cereals last an 1 1/2hrs to 2 1/2hrs. Sounds like a movie time to me, and sense they were all cereals they were shot almost like movies. So if you really want to compare this to something this is early doctor who, meaning if you can't have fun with what is given then apparently you need to look someone else for you entertainment. But if you stay just to bitch and annoy the shit out of the patrons...STFU & GTFO!
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Funny I never said I watch them, I only pointed out a critique of their anniversaries. So that brash come out swinging "I have no better argument" tactic of "don't watch it then" doesn't really come into play here. And again I ask; why are critics not allowed to be criticized for their work regardless of its free nature? Especially when that free nature is the internet equivalent of commercial broadcasting.

    I will also again stress (has anyone actually read my comments or is everyone just skimming through and picking out the bad parts) that I have no problem with the technical issues in the films. I put up with the original Dracula and a silent adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's Call of Cthulu and all the gloriously bad effects and production values of those films. And like the old Dr. Who episodes you reference, they're endearing because there's a certain wit and charm to the whole thing.

    I have fun with what is given on this site, else I wouldn't be here. The TGWTG crew are some of the best most knowledgeable internet critics on the web, beaten only by Red Letter Media. My problem is their anniversary productions have been seriously lacking and, I will yet again say, are badly written. I am of the personal belief that a group of critics known for tearing apart films deserve the same treatment when they make a film that doesn't even live up to their own standards. So what it's okay to completely tear something apart, but when it's noted they do the same thing they get away with it?

    I'm not here to stay "just to bitch and annoy the shit out of the patrons" I camE here saw a preview, pointed out my opinions of their most recent films and how with their growing quality this one might turn out to be legitimately good. And then I'm bitched at by a series of fans that can't seem to comprehend criticism no matter how legitimate or constructive it is because they're extreme adulation for a group of talented reviewers who just happen to be under-talented filmmakers. The only person who actually gave some respect to my opinion while being against it being DarkMessiah.

    Thus far all I've seen are immature fans of a group of critics who can't handle when their critics are critiqued. If irony ever needed an example of its meaning, this would be it.
  • Semudara
    avatar
    Yeah, I'm sorry that people responded to you like this. It's the internet and people tend to be overly defensive. I find it especially painful that THOOM lumped you in the same group as Theory (shudder).

    While I certainly disagree with your opinion, the fact that you expressed it in a civil manner and created the potential for some actual critical discussion puts you miles above either the trolls or the overly-defensive fans. I just hope you won't let the backlash get to you; they probably just misjudged you and overreacted. Criticism should be welcome on a website of critics any day.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    No worries, I get it at the end of the day. There's plenty of trolls out there that like to come to sites like this and completely down every single thing they day. They do it so often that it's hard for anyone to get any kind of opinion in that seems negative without being thought of as a troll.
  • Earl Grey  - Are you serious?
    avatar
    I agree with you that movie made by TGWTG are not good, and you know what? They not supposed to be. You just don't get the joke: those people are reviewing stupid, terrible movies and part of the joke is... they made couple of identically terrible, stupid movies. It is intentional. It's parody, spoof like "Naked gun" or "Ghostbusters". Entire idea behind those movies is so nonsensical that is not possible to take it seriously. In those movies TGWTG team made fun of themselves, they made fun of nerd culture and all sorts of film genres - including stuff they review on daily basis. So I don't realy know what you are expecting from that kind of spoof? Only thing I agree on is lowbrow humor - they should made less distasteful jokes.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Again I understand these are all spoofs but the problem is they're well written, especially Ghostbusters. Sure it's cheesy and nonsensical but Harold Ramis and Dan Akroyd wrote a damn good script with some great gags and jokes. The TGWTG crew may not be intending to make good movies but that's not an excuse, that just makes it worse that they are purposefully making stuff that's bad. It's gotten better and I found myself enjoying some of Suburban Knights for some of its jokes and gags, which means they're maturing. If they're really getting better with each edition than I suspect this new anniversary will be an all around good watch and I might even buy it when they do their special edition DVD release.

    I never intended to be a jerk or come off as one I just wanted to state my own mini critique and opinions on their body of work thus far.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    Look lets do this. I'm in production of a small independent film myself right now. When I'm finished I'll upload it and put a link to it, and anyone who cares to watch can feel free to critique the hell out of it.

    No this is not intended for promotional purposes for anyone who may be thinking that. There is absolutely no monetary gain with this project.

    GOD DAMN YOU, FLAMINGOMAN! WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE! WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO COME HERE AND GIVE YOUR HONEST OPINION,giving reasons why you feel that way, and not resorting to crusing, like you have some kind of right to your own opinon or something........JERK!

    In all seriousness though, I understand what your saying, but I honestly did enjoy Kickassia and Suburban Knights, for what they were. They're not great movies, I know that, but I had fun with them. But I liked Scary Movie too, so what do I know. (Hey, anything that mocks Scream is OK in my book) I do think they are good for what they are, which was a bunch of friends making a movie and having fun with it. It's amateurish (maybe because they're amateurs) but it's still entertaing if you don't take it to seriously, and, as you say, it has gotten better from year to year.

    And no, you're not a jerk, at least I don't think so. But I don't quite agree with you.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    I see what you did there lol. Kickassia had a neat premise like I said but I just couldn't get into the humor. The best parts being Doug's performance as the M. Bison parody. Suburban Knights like I said had some good jokes. I forget what it was called, but the whole sequence with the cat puppet thing was pretty damn good. As for Scary Movie I meant the fourth one really. I enjoyed the first and second but 3&4 weren't too great.

    Thank you for disagreeing without telling me to STFU & GTFO. You make some good points.
  • criticalchap  - Flamingoman, I think you can at least agree with t
    avatar
    It always baffles me why some people think that the TGWTG anniversaries should be judged as movies in their own right. I'm not going to make the same cop-out excuse "It's not supposed to be taken seriously" crap most people do, but I do have a point.

    With the TGWTG movies you're dealing with a pre-established troupe of non-actors who are shoved into a movie simply because they were capable of showing up, not because they had a written reason to be there. Suburban Knights featured roughly 20 reviewers and even more characters. This is something that wouldn't happen in a movie where every character has a specific purpose and role to play, but rather something that would happen at, um, i dunno, an anniversary event.

    When Doug writes these movies he has to work some half ass way to work in far more people than reasonably should be there plotwise, but it has to happen, because it is an event that is supposed to sate the fans and provide some fun to the reviewers while also producing a free product they can make ad revenue on.

    If you want to see what a reviewer can really do when they have full creative control of the project, go check out some the free movies Brad Jones has on his site. Midnight Heat and Hooker with a Heart of Gold have great writing, but shit production value. But the writing makes it work. Lindsay Ellis is a film maker as well, and she has a short film out there that has won awards.

    In summary, movies and these anniversary specials are written under entirely different circumstances. If someone doesn't find them funny, that's nothing new. All kinds of people don't find all kinds of shit funny. But a few always will. Thus why they have a reason to exist.
  • flamingoman

    Thank you, that was the best argument I have heard thus far and I really have no comebacks. You my friend have just shut me the hell up. The best I've got is a comparison to Roland Emmerich movies and having way to many characters, but difference is these anniversaries are events that require contrivance whereas Roland Emmerich films are just large scale disaster movies.
  • flamingoman

    Also I saw Brad's other work and his stuff is pretty damn good. I wanna watch Paranoia; that one looks good.

    Hooker with a Heart of Gold was pretty damn good. I honestly was expecting it to be a cartoon, like Kickassia, but was suprised by how good it really was.

    By the way, is it just me, or does the music at the begging of the trailer some like "Lady" by "Kenny Rodgers?"

    Ghostbusters? Well writen? You are joking. It's about four guys fighting with sumerian god that appear in the form of Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, and about Sigourney Weaver turning into a dog. :) No, plotwise Ghostbusters wasn't realy good, and again that was intentional, because it was parody, pastiche, spoof. This same can be told about TGWTG movies, and that fact that just escapes you, you just don't get it. They are making terrible movies, because they review movies such as those. You just don't get the joke.
  • flamingoman
    avatar
    I'm not talking about the story, I'm talking about the dialogue. When I mean well written I mean dialogue. You can have the silliest premise but if you have good characters and dialogue than the story works. Take Prometheus for instance, it has a much grander scope and meddles with some thought provoking concepts. But the movie falls flat because of the bad writing.

    Funny I'm not trolling. I'm merely replying to everyone else's comments. And why would it be necessary that they delete someone who has been civil this entire time and has only been insulted by the people who can't handle when these critics are criticized? The only thing them deleting my post would reflect is they themselves being unable to handle criticism. I have no reason to dislike them and I'm not here to cause problems like I apparently have. All I did was civilly state my opinion, maybe rather harshly, but isn't that what they do?

    Mostly I'm addressing the double standard of their banning process. I really have no hate towards you or you criticism here. Most has an actual point worth some discussion or at least actual notice without blind fanatical rebuke.

    But, I just thought it interesting what they will and won't allow with their censorship.

    Quick addendum: At the length you have gone to constantly address every response, it does come off a little trollish. Sorry.

    That is true, I noticed those earlier comments that had the name Spoony in them were deleted in a matter of minutes. That's a good point.

    I tend to like debate and discussion and I'm the kind of guy who has to get my point across regardless of the amount of comments I have to reply to lol. It's no worries, reflecting back on it, it does seem rather trollish.

    You are calling these guys are my "heroes" because I critiqued your overly long diatribe against them? I'm telling you to "grow up". Just because you wrote a comment as a "formal review" you think you are being mature? My 3 word critique of your trolling mess was the most concise and accurate description of your whining.

    This is a comment board, not a blog or movie review section in a newspaper. The producers put their video commentary in the right context on the site. They don't put their reviews in the commentary section of the trailers of sequels to the movies they are critiquing, or the comment section on netflix. You want to write a review? Get a blog.

    As for you insisting that their movies are bad? I like them. Most of the fans here like them. The CA crew is happy with their work. So it is worth the effort they put out. You don't like them. So don't watch them anymore. That's the solution.

    This is a comment board man, not a praise board. He is remaining civil and on-topic so he can express his opinion freely. The only one who's trolling here is you.

    But he's a pro-site troll, and that makes it ok (I guess)

    First off that is not an accurate description of my whining because I wasn't whining. Also my original "diatribe" as you call it wasn't long. I agreed with JewWario and openly admitted their productions have been getting better since the original and stated that most of them are pretty decent actors, given their lack of experience. Also it wasn't even a formal review, it was like a three sentence single paragraph of my opinion and how I think that as each anniversary goes by they also get better.

    The point of a comment section like this is to leave commentary and personal opinion, be it negative or not so. My personal opinion just happened to be critical, I didn't leave a review of their films, I merely stated how I felt. What is so wrong with stating my feelings on a comment board that is in ways meant to leave feedback? The whole reason I started diatribes and stated reasons for my opinions started after I got attacked by you when you decided to call me a whiner.

    Like I said to an earlier poster I don't watch them not anymore. Just because a lot of people like them and the directors are happy with their work doesn't mean that the opinion of one lone guy should piss most people off so much, especially on a web-site filled with CRITICS. It's their job to criticize and whine about crappy movies that the makers were happy with and zillions of people liked,so why am I the bad guy when I just state my feelings? It makes no sense. I mean you come here and jump me for expressing an opinion and you jump on AriaRaven for having a comment about her feelings on the teaser. If anyone here has the problem it's you. I finished with this discussion hours ago after CriticalChap pointed out very logical and sensible reasons why their films are the way they are on a writing level.

    Sorry this is getting too long, so is this whole discussion. I'll just end it like this here. Sorry to any fans I may have offended in my earlier writings, there was no offence or trolling intended and I apologize if I offended any of the TGWTG crew. I could've worded myself better.

    ....And we care how much? Jeez! For someone who doesn't like this trailer, you sure do like to comment on it.
  • Bloodrealm
    I like all the anniversary specials. I don't know what YOUR problem is.
    I also agree with JW's response to you: if they can produce Asylum quality with pocket change (relatively), then they're obviously doing something right.
  • Crystal-Heart
    I actually loved Kickassia and Suburban Knights, they just may not be your cup of tea.

  • JoeMerl
    "Summer. -Ish."

    That just cracked me up for some reason. XD Probably because of how somber the rest of the trailer is.

    I totally understand about no NC this week with Doug having gotten married recently. 4th year teaser is pretty good replacement as was simple wish commentary last week.
    Now to the teaser. Wow! That is all I can say man. It's ominous as some have said but wow. Looks like critic is in trouble or they all are in it. Something or someone after them maybe but i'm just guessing. I can't wait man.

    I can't tell crap about the plot from this but I can see the quality is a 100 times better. There seems to be no digital pix-elation! I can't wait to see this as it'll be the last time for some classic crossovers!
  • Lady Critique  - Please someone answer
    avatar
    Sorry, but I have no facebook or twitter accounts, but who actually is or has left the site already? Is Spoony leaving the site or is it a joke? Also trailer looks epic and can't wait, but is Doug really quitting being the Nostalgia Critic or is the whole "Nostalgia Critic's last journey" thing just for the movie? Someone please help me out in understanding what's going on.

    Spoony truly left the site, but this movie was filmed months ago, long before anyone knew of the circumstances that would lead to his departure.
  • Linklex7
    avatar
    Spoony isn't on the site anymore? I didn't know that. That's sad to hear.
  • HolyAtheist
    Spoony has left. I'm really sad about it.
  • Akiyama4711
    actually he was kicked out. don't believe the hype
  • Fanloser
    Spoony is leaving/has left TGWTG. As for Doug that's more than likely just for the movie seeing as how he pulled a similar thing at the end of the My Pet Monster review.
  • weckar
    avatar
    I'm pretty sure it refers to the fact that Doug has stated this is likely the last anniversary movie.
  • Fanloser
    Really? Where and when did he say that?
  • ladydiskette
    avatar
    I don't think its really the LAST anniversary more like the last anniversary with a cast of this magitude, I think next year they are going to try and do one with a smaller cast.

    Wait, CR is going to be there? (O O) Way to go little dude ^_^ I didn't think he'd be there since I didn't see him in any of the crossover episodes.
  • Dexilan
    Him and Brad did a "Brad Tries" about airheads.
  • Bloodrealm
    Doug was also in one of CR!'s Familiar Faces.
  • Semudara
    avatar
    Yeah, the one on Baby Doll, which was also the first time we saw CR in the flesh. That was a great episode!
  • JMGiron  - But Critic....
    ... It's already summer :D

    This trailer gives us very little to what to look forward to, yet the graphic look epic. Must see.
  • rooks
    Everything's looking darn impressive: the screen quality's really jumped forward since Suburban Knights, looks like the acting's gonna be fun as ever, and I'm so excited that CR and JO are gonna be in this one >u
  • theshak  - THAT WAS AWESOME!!
