    Dear Doug Walker (AKA The Nostalgia Critic), Hi! Long time fan here. I was wondering if you do requests and if you may take my request to review Wild Hogs from 2007, starring Tim Allen, John Travolta, William H. Macy, and Martin Lawrence. I would really love to hear your opinion about it and see you pick at it. I loved this movie growing up, and since my humor has changed since then, I was wondering if you could please review it. Thank you.

    Thing not like thing I know so thing bad. Even though everything in the MCU is changed; Civil War, Spider-Man, Flash Thompson, MJ, Vulture, Antman, Infinity War, Every character and event in Guardians of the Galaxy, The Mandarin, Doctor Strange's Ancient One, Ultron. They take the core ideas and change them around for mass appeal, just like this movie. Hell the comics even took inspiration from the movies and changed them to make them similar to the MCU to make new readers feel comfortable picking them up. Hell, look at Into the Spiderverse, it is 100% completely different from the event comic, but it takes the hook of seeing multiple spider-people adds a fresh spin and the best version of Miles Morales and is gorgeous to look at. Just because things aren't the way you want them to be doesn't automatically make them bad. There are things to complain about in this movie, but focusing your entire argument on it not being faithful, even though the MCU changes even more things is just a bad argument.

    Hey Critic, I've been thinking and I wanted to pass this along to you... Please consider a new angle to your programming, this 'baaah everything is terrible!' shit is old and tired. It just comes off as really petty too like you just sit around waiting for Hollywood to make a bad film because that is a payday for you... That's how a parasite lives man, you're better than that. Besides, it's so hypocritical, I've seen some of your attempts to make a movie and if you judged them with even a fraction of the harsh standards you hold Hollywood up to, they'd simply disintegrate. It still amazes me how bad that game show was, and you guys had $90k to make that with too, that's more than the 10x entire production costs of Primer even after you adjust for inflation. Or that one movie that was 4 hrs long and at the end you drive into... a portal in the sky? I mean cmon dude, how many times have we heard you scream about how lame that is. It's getting hard to watch these so I'm going to have to move on, but I have enjoyed them for the most part and I feel like I've gotten to know you and the team through them so I really wish you the best and I hope you give my suggestion some consideration. How about instead of 'lets make fun of bad movies', and by extension, hope to christ hollywood makes some new bad movies cause we all need that paycheck, lets watch a movie together, and we can make fun of the corny parts and appreciate whats good in it? Nostalgia-Park? I dunno, you get the idea. Best of luck!

She haven't got those from the start! -Storm had white hair! And Halle Berry looked awesome in it :P Critic was right in that we didn't have multiple MCU movies back then.

    ALOT of ppl already covered theses points, but having just viewed, cant help but repeat. True comedy of moments not explained can be funny, but actual arguements (w no merit) dont stand. Basket ball court OK so - ADAPTATION means ADAPTING; funnily that equals changing, this case medium & audience. AND with that - # ROUGE: who cares, can come later films (not sadly), merges many similar origins of young wards in X-Men, her TRUE PWR fits themes of alienation and fear. # MAGNETO- NOOOOoooo no no no, Critic, darling please, think a second before you say grab helmet of gun man holding dozens people hostage w loaded guns # So machine affect is white... so what? .... Also genes & neuron opening with Patrick Stewart.. problem? # Sabre-tooth - Yeah your right but... shrug?- ambiguous Macho no memory rivalry OR Charles v Magneto # Ultimately case of - Expecting take certain comic elements that dont stand up to this films environment &/or fit comfortably with messages taking seriously can just lead to a mess

    "Somebody hacked my credit card information while I was shopping online! Wait, that can't happen because I have VPN!" you really don't know what a VPN does or how the internet works, do you? It would be great if youtubers actually read into the stuff they promote. Pretty much all you said about express-VPN is *lying* through omission. Yes, it does encript your stuff. From you to the endpoint of the VPN. From there, it's just as unencripted as it would be if you accessed the website directly. Yes, your ISP won't see your stuff. But you just exchange it for the ISP of the VPN (or the particular endpoint you're routed to), which would see just as much or as little as your own would, but you have no choice in the matter of who it is. If the shopping site has HTTPS, it's encripted end-to-end, meaning from your computer to the shoping server, wheter VPN or not and no ISP in the middle will see jack shit. If it doesn't, it's still not encripted at least from the VPN endpoint to the shopping server, so it would only protect you against people sitting in your own home (or university or something), but not someone it the wide web. Any shopping site NOT using HTTPS should be avoided anyway. So you gain jack shit from using a VPN. And that is just talking man-in-the-middle-attacks. Any hacks directed to any shopping site servers or any phishing websites and a VPN would do fuck all for you. It disgusts me how happy youtubers are to just lie to their viewers just for some money. Hell, you could stay truthful and still promote it, because there are positives to VPNs, like that someone between you and the ISP, like houshold or work or university would be locked out unable to see what you do. Or that stuff that is area locked could be accessed, because the end server would think you're from the country the VPN exit's at. But no, I guess that's too hard. Better lie. I'd guess it's not malice but ignorance in your case, but then again, I don't think that's the first time you promoted VPN so somebody has told you before, I'm sure.

    You are so irritating and talentless. It is staggeringly mind-blowing to me that so many people actually enjoy the "Nostalgia Critic"-persona. It's mystifying. This is the routine: I hit the "not interested"-button, and mercifully you cease appearing in my recommendations. Then, usually around 6 months later, you inevitably come back, an unwelcome, somehow even less clever, "Pet Sematary"-like manifestation. I do sincerely feel bad for dropping such a viciously negative comment. I blame BR-channel's algorithm. I am clearly not a fan of what you do. Accordingly I enter into a covenant with BR-channel: "not interested". Twice a year, perhaps because they hate me, BR-channel gleefully fucking neglects said covenant. And so here we are. See you in 6 months.
