      1. myungsook choi

        Logan and Apocalypse

      2. thecouchgenie wtf

        in the purge review what music was used for the title card?

      3. Evan Arnold

        Best: Logan Worst: Last stand

      4. Sofia The Wolf Gamer

        Review Balloonatiks

      5. TPabsolute

        X-men 3 last stand is the best x men movie

    2. Haunted Knight

      That mansion attack though... *"If you wanna shoot me, SHOOT ME!"*

    3. Barry Madden

      Ok, Animal farm isn't a book, it's an allegorical novella about Stalinism, and spoiler alert, it sucks.

    4. Draggo 2012

      I love these X-Men movies.

    5. lcodfan

      Leonardo was my favorite ninja turtle

    6. Stanger_in_the_Alps

      Nightcrawler was able to save Rogue because she was free falling through the AIR. He is scared about teleporting into an object... since he has no idea what the room looks like inside, it's always possible he'll teleport into a control console, or a filing cabinet.

    7. M Balazs

      Are you off on your anti depression pills or it it that time of the month? or is it both? :D This film is awesome, you just forcefully nit pick and twist things.

    8. GrassValleyGreg

      I'm willing to give the X-Men the 007 pass- it doesn't necessarily HAVE to make sense. But the original X-Men TAS WAS better than ANY of the movies.

    9. Nova JT

      For all the ones who say that Xavier doesn’t have telekinesis didnt xavier tell logan that jean had the same powers has him? I know he meant the mind reading thing but couldnt he just have been confused and taught that in this universe that they made it so that he had it

    10. Michelle Tackett

      You swung and missed on this one. X2 has been one of the best games of all time and it still holds up.

      1. Coco Lime

        ... you mean films?

    11. Gilligan Lewis

      Why not just manipulate the electrons in every atom if magneto controls magnetism his abilities therefor control or at the very least be able to manipulate electricity. Scarlet Witch, reality wrapping.... well if they every dueled just disable her atoms bit by bit! I wish they could implement real science 101 into this. Science is OP as....

    12. mattwho81

      Superhero movies have come a long way but at this point this movie had the edge on character development and story arcs. Compare to others of the time and it has so much more heart.

    13. James Boyd

      it's got tons and tons of hits, cuz the guide dog teacher is super thick

    14. AlexVonWolfstein

      What's the guitar riff near the end from?

    15. Паисий Пчельник


    16. Gavin Gwinn

      10:22 my favorite part so far

    17. Den Gmirin


    18. Will B

      "He could have picked up the plane from inside" Since when is Xavier telekinetic? I thought he could mess with people's heads, never throw things with his mind.

    19. lightkingz

      Are we counting Deadpool as X-men

    20. lightkingz

      Please add in the shows

    21. BroTheDude

      This guy does such a good job at making entertaining and actually thoughtful reviews of old movies. I appreciate your work very much friend.

    22. rash b

      "Now it's a Singer film." Well played!

    23. 42nd Blaze

      Literally every problem Doug has with this movie is solved by scenes he doesn’t take into consideration or just by logical deduction. There’s a lot of wrong in this movie however Doug mentions absolutely none of them

    24. QueenCheetah

      X2 is definitely my favorite X-men movie; in part because it confirms what 'Evolution' taught us: that Nightcrawler is the sexiest mutant of all time.

    25. Peter Parker

      Mutants aren't only blue.

    26. inuome92

      I actually really like watching your paid promotion commercials. They’re always really funny xD

    27. Miguel de Lima

      7:14 "This isn't over, Bears!" in the bottom right XD

    28. DigitalFulcrum

      *sigh* I feel like I'm probably the only Scott "Cyclops" Summers fan out there. He's a very important character to Xmen but I guess no one likes the daddy who has to enforce discipline and rules.

    29. Abel Mantor

      "This is the only way ." Lol.

    30. fan films

      Or nightcrawler could of morphed out of the plane and grab jean

    31. Gracekim1

      Wait I thought character moments are a good thing

    32. Ailurophile

      Is x-men first class not considered an x-men movie?

    33. cyde79

      A school mass murder joke, really? But I did like the video!

    34. Metalfanrog

      The book animal farm is actually the book that beast read in the prison in the x men cartoon.

    35. Healer Force

      Ya know i do find it Ironic that Brian Singer was in A star trek movie i guess it kinda rubbed off on him

    36. Da_ Gudz

      When you said rouge ran because she’s just rouge you misted the chance to say she’s gone rouge

    37. gruthakhul100


    38. Royal Refraction

      Huh in the UK it was just called X-Men 2

    39. Halo Canon

      Jesus this was a bad review. Some really odd complaints, many of which demonstrate either willful ignorance of the movie's story (Xavier isn't a telekinetic) and/or a lack of any basic research. Jesus man, what the hell happened?

    40. Shams The Whisteller

      Awesome, glad your doing X-men!

    41. LegoStarWars 100

      Finally, someone else who doesn’t like NSync

    42. eddiespagheddie

      This is a great movie

    43. The Phoenix Quill

      'storm couldn't have steered the water away?' Storm controls the weather, but she doesn't have any control over water itself to my knowledge. 'Xavier couldn't lift the plane from inside' I thought Xavier was only telepathic, not telekinetic?

    44. Tamás Jenővári

      damn, i just wanna read animal farm now...

    45. Olvrem

      They shot this movie at my University (Hatley Park Castle). So now I tell people I went to the Xavier School for gifted children.

    46. Nes


    47. Friendly Redneck Neighbor

      Everyone let’s just remain calm and chill. Good old critic isn’t making reviews, he is creating content through which to entertain you, usually with comedy. There’s no reason to get upset because he got a few facts wrong... although I pray to God he has enough common sense not to use wiki.

    48. Jason Steiner

      Charles Xavier has never had telekinesis he could not have lifted the plane he could have control jeans mind and made her lift the plane though

    49. Luis Flores

      It's Joe still a part of the team?

    50. Alt. Knt.

      22:22 Really Singer, did you read that line...out loud? did you ever you read that line out loud? You could have. I mean, you clearly could have. You just stated...That This Powerfully Telekinetic/Telepathic mutant, whose idea to save her mutant friends from drowning in a raging waterfall inside a jet by stepping out of the jet, lifting the jet and building a psychic wall towards the waterfall, waiting for it to claim her life while her mutant friends are saved...was THE ONLY WAY to save them.

      1. Mar Gillard

        Iceman...can step out the jet and freeze the water dead in its tracks, but... 22:28 Storm can use her mutant powers and assist jean with lifting the jet or redirect the water so that it flows in a different direction but... 22:31 Xavier can lift the jet from the inside but... 22:35 Jean can LIFT THE JET FROM THE INSIDE! BUT...!! 22:38 YOU CAN'T BE THIS STUPID! Y-YOU CAN'T! YOU LITERALLY JUST STATED OUT LOUD WHY. THIS MOVIE. CAN'T. WORK! I MEAN, WHAT ARE YOU, A MORON?!!!

    51. trigger1808

      So if all the bones of worverine is adamantium. Does that mean his dick and ball's is also adamantium?

    52. 2Scribble

      What I find ESPECIALLY amusing about this film is how everyone focuses on the Jean/Logan/Scott triangle (basically the 'romance' between a sex object, a whore and a sock puppet) when there isn't a SINGLE woman in this movie who Logan didn't have 'a scene' with :P

    53. Comic Maniac15

      Everyone says xmen uses blue too much. The truth is that blue was chosen in the comics since it was one of the cheaper colors(along with green and purple)

    54. Ryan Lewand

      Is this choppy editing going to be a thing from now on? Also you would think after all the comments on the first X review he would drop the rouge thing.

    55. TJ Chimichanga

      Uhh didn't logan stab you? Is that a turn on for this chick?

    56. MrSkippyable

      No offense Doug, but you really feel like you were reaching with this one. I had my complaints too (Heck my friends and me even has the same questions about the scenario at the end with the jet when this first came out). But for the most part it was pretty well written. Here though most of your complaints felt like too focused nitpicks.

    57. BurnRoddy

      Wolverine did date Mystique in WW2, later on she would date Sabretooth before settling down with Magneto. I know this because I have a copy of that particular run. It was a Sabretooth 4 issue miniseries from way back in 1993. I think she also had a thing with Mister Sinister but I'm not sure if it was mutual.

    58. Elroid Tiereon

      I remember seeing this one as a kid. And beside some cool stuff... It sucked. It really did.

    59. Bork TheFedZ

      I crack up laughing more than a boy in puberty.

    60. masseffectfreak07

      Does he have a new camera? For some reason the video is super sharp

    61. Mitch Fletcher

      19:25 Says you. Leonardo is great, even if he's a little uptight.

    62. twinodoom

      Everyone's talking about how Xavier couldn't have lifted the plane. But why couldn't JEAN lift the plane from inside?

      1. David Gantenbein

        Basically to also be able to hold off the water. She is neither super powerful nor super fast in the movie. She is also shown to direct her powers with her hands and in general needing to at least see the target for some time. It may not be totally like in the comics where she developed way past this level, but she was also not that powerful in the early comics as well.

    63. BYERE

      I mean, yes, the whole floating platform thing DOES look silly, but it IS the sort of thing Magneto would do...

    64. Prime92

      wow, that's some grade a shit intro animation. just wow.

    65. Sofia The Wolf Gamer

      Review Ballonatiks

    66. Olav Bjortomt

      Nitpicking at its worse, for the sake of some stupid "jokes". Glossing over how good it actually is - because it's the best X-Men movie. Most annoying Nostalgia Critic episode I've seen.

    67. Uriko Star

      When Xavier paused everyone all I could think about was how nobody could blink, their eyes must be so sore!

    68. Dalton Clarke - Judith Nyman SS (2404)

      Review : Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil

    69. JP vidz

      can you do ducktlales {2017} season 1 I would love to hear your thoughts

    70. Jason Todd’s Hot Bod

      Are you gonna have to review some of the movies into April? Because theirs not enough Wednesday left in March for all of them, lol

    71. Dennis P.

      the thing about nightcrawler teleporting out of the plane is that it was in the air, there was no chance that he could teleport into somthing dangerous, he teleported roughly where he thought she was and caught her, i do admit him teleporting back inside the plane is a stretch, but you could blame that on stress, people can do crazy things when they are under a lot of stress, in the facility, nightcrawler wasnt under any real stress, at least not in the same way as before, so he didnt think he could teleport into a room where he could easely accidently telleport into somthing.

    72. permeus2nd

      14:01 THANK YOU! bloody depowering Rogue and turning her into a wuss, were is my bad ass southern bell that beats up 60ft tall robots with construction girders she ripped out of the building she got slammed into before punching it into scrapy bits.

    73. Ancient_Castle

      Did they hold you at gunpoint when you were filming that commercial? Because it sure looks and feels like they did. Psst, blink twice in your next X-Men review if I was right.

      1. Dylan Short


    74. Mikey McDonagh

      Wow this has to be the most nitpicky nostalgia critic review I've ever seen

      1. Walter Honwana

        I had to force myself to finish the video

    75. Kunisake The Artist

      *A N I M A L F A R M ! !*

    76. Kunisake The Artist

      You want... all of these children... to d-

    77. Logical Overdrive

      15:49 he’s right, really good book.

    78. zan w

      Rogue hasn't learned to fly yet.... Because she hasn't drained miss marvel power yet.... How are you nitpicking comic plot holed and not realizing that it not a part of rogue real power to fly and have super strength

    79. Peek- At -Ch'you

      Geez, and I thought SOME modern 21st Century Fox Marvel films are try hards. 🙄

    80. CmanTheMonkey

      Can you make an Elvis month with his movies please

    81. Jacob Entz

      Funny how he just completely glosses over a majority of the good shit

    82. Thomas Phillips

      These films you should review eg Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code+Angel & Demons+Inferno starring Tom Hanks

    83. Rhonda Peterson

      Do a review of aqua teen hunger force please

    84. Alexander The Great

      I see Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The X-Files, Lost, The Walking Dead, TaleSpin, Seinfeld, Star Trek - The Next Generation. (I'm a good guesser) You forgot to put Walker, Texas Ranger, Power Rangers, JAG, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Dragon Prince, 24, etc.

    85. TheK8iKat

      Oh, man... The ending... Crap. I just remembered why "mutation" is seen as such a bad thing. Because I had somehow seen that very last part without seeing the rest, and in that moment I was literally thinking "yes, everyone is different!"

    86. MrHandss

      first class and days of future past are better. no, i'm not counting the deadpool movies or logan. anyways, the worst is easily xmen origins: wolverine.

      1. God of Evil

        BUT!!!! You must admit that the one good thing.... THE ONLY NEW COOL THING was Victor Creed AKA Sabretooth played by Liev Schreiber.

    87. TheK8iKat

      Gosh. Even if it might not feel like it was that long ago for some, this is reminding me of when I was a small child and like. "... Why the heck are girls always damsels in distress?" Also, why does the most handsome/hardcore dude get the most screentime? It's X-Men. Not Wolverine.

    88. TheK8iKat

      OH, MY GOSH. THE FETISHIZING OF BLUE. BLUE IS MY FAVORITE COLOR. XD BUT UGH... PICK OTHERS! PURPLE. GREEN. GO CRAZY WITH IT! Although, Mystique is supposedly Nightcrawler's mother. So - BUT YEAH. MYSTIQUE. WHY TF DOES SHE HAVE FEATHERS WHEN SHE IS NAKED? ... FOX? ... DISNEEEEY? HAAALP. Although, I do realize it would... OnO Prolly make sense that she did for her disguises. Eh... But then she can make clothes? Idk. XD

    89. Dante Bazzea

      Please can you review Here comes the boom someday


      Now I l know why this is x-month.... the Disney buyout

    91. Kurington Kuriton

      During the scene where Magneto escapes his prison my son (9) said that "Magneto is cool!". All I could reply was: "Yes. Yes he is."

      1. God of Evil


    92. Mateusz Tur

      Mystique was portrayed as more of a wild animal than a woman in the original X-men movies. I'm not sure why would it be weird that she suddenly wants to screw Wolverine. Probably she just felt like doing it.

    93. Nicolas Schultz

      The more he swears the better the movie. Okay new pitch: First X-Men film by Disney is Jackman playing every part in a Les Mis like musical only using the word Fuck in different tones. And in the end he fights Lou Ferignos Hulk

    94. George Zarmakoupis

      22:31...for the millionth time... Xavier doesn't have telekinetic powers. Only psychic/telepathy.

    95. DrawTastrophe Toons

      Do "Nostalgia Critic: Tom & Jerry in The Fast and The Furry", please!!!!

    96. Saint Boot

      I am so sick of this sponsor dick riding in the middle of the video. I set up adblockers so I would not have to see shit like this in the first place.

    97. Miah Thorpatrick

      I already loved the movie "Logan". These movies are making me love it even more as that as far superior to anything remotely tying into X-Men.

    98. SpaceGeek2161

      When Rogue was fumbling with the seat belt on the jet, isn't she just having trouble because of her gloves (trying to use a cloth surface to grip smooth metal)? That's the impression that I got, and it makes MUCH more sense than "the seat belt on our super high-tech jet is broken".

    99. Megan Suarez

      You should review Firestarter

    100. Trent Gein

      One of the worst episodes yet. Unbelievably nitpicky and looking for any issues you possibly can. Fuck off
