A good amount. For a long-time youtuber with as much street recognition as Nostalgia Critic has, I'd wager about fifteen percent. In spite of his subscriber count he's fairly well known among veterans of the internet.
That can't be true. I'm still subbed to channels I haven't touched in years. Not because I'm lazy or anything
I'd say even one seventh of a million is a large number. It's around 143,000.
True, but funny =/= good critic. So I'd rather have a good review than a half-baked review followed by a comedy skit.
That's not what I'm saying?
I'm saying your definition of a review doesn't make sense. By your description my joke review of TTV holds as much validity as anything Roger Ebert may have put out.
This informs him on cinematography, lighting, camerawork, professional acting, scriptwriting, and special effects, while also learning the in-universe lore, characters, historical background, and storytelling? No.
Not to say he doesn't know anything about those topics, but c'mon man, you aren't going to learn every possible aspect by watching it once.
I beg pardon, no, I'm not missing that and I highly doubt anyone else is. What we're saying is that, even for comedy, they aren't that good. You're welcome to like them for comedy and you're perfectly fine being informed by the review, but on the basis of a critique, it's... Well, deserving of critique.
Good analysis, I do try to ignore most of his content. But I have actually seen the Episode 7 review.
You missed my retort by about three hours m8
Correct! He just doesn't do it very well.
And there you run into why he might not have done a review on Bionicle yet. Maybe he did a little bit of research and found out Bionicle fans are even more vicious than his subscribers, and would start a witch hunt if he trashed it. I've seen much lesser names get hunted for much lesser heresy, and I would imagine he's smart enough to steer far, far away from that mess.
But more importantly, I don't want to see a 40 minute comedy skit skirting around multiple issues of the actual film or barely addressing it at all ending on using another youtuber's content for sub cred(Nostalgia Critic: The Wall). I'd like to see a review. Maybe that kind of content is what you prefer to see, but a much larger count than what his subscriber base is detests his content, and maybe I'm just a little sick of the same act for over a decade.
TL;DR, I don't care if Doug looks at the Bionicle films or not. For legitimate reasons I probably won't be watching it.
Not to say that it's the youtuber's fault, as almost all the time it's fans with too much time or some company out east, but I'm sure there's a lot of bots subbed to every major youtuber over 5 million. Something tells me they don't skip the ads
