    When I heard that there was a Woody woodpecker movie I was pumped. A movie that is just 2 and a half hours of madness with Woody, and I couldn't wait. That's what this movie should have been, fully animated with slapstick and roots to the original material, not this bullshit.

    Man, the comments were toxic around this time. Pointlessly, so given that Channel Awesome have put out their response on their website disproving many of the worst claims.
    They didn't harbour a sexual deviant, he was fired three weeks after they were made aware (most of which time involved consulting lawyers, etc).
    Involvement in the anniversary specials was unpaid but it was not mandatory.
    No-one was forced to work while recovering from surgery, or fired for failing to do so (and they have a string of correspondence proving this)
    Correspondence at the time shows that all cast were comfortable with the 'transformation scene'.
    And for crying out loud, some of the complaints were things like "Doug cancelling the Nostalgia Critic meant less viewers coming to Channel Awesome and watching our videos", as if they should have any say over what the Walkers do with their own content.

    my thing is why did they ruin woody woodpecker? sure he wasn't the best classic cartoon character, but he wasn't the worst... I think... I don't like some of those older episodes... still, they could have done something better. I always hate when Hollywood takes these classic IP's and make the movies not about the title characters. it would be like if a movie was called Dracula but he's in it a total of five minutes and it's actually about a guy that wants to open a theme park, but he has to deal with his bratty teenage kid and an ex wife. This is why I don't have much hope for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, besides the design of the character that is, I just know the movie is going to have jack shit to do with sonic and be more about whatever bullshit human character they write into that story.
    Dear Hollywood, when you make a movie based off of a popular IP, why do you always think, we the audience, want to see the bullshit lives and problems of these human characters when the movie is called *popular franchise name here*? we can watch any other movie or tv show that is about human characters, why are you so afraid to make a movie based on a popular franchise and leave OUT the human characters? if the main characters are not human, that is. I know that I want to see the actual title characters and don't give a damn about any of the human characters, i don't care about their problems, i want to see just the title characters, that's what drew me in, in the first place. That's what I'd like to see for the Sonic the Hedgehog Movie, it just focuses on Sonic and friends and not some kid character... But I already get the feeling that's going to be the case.

    Woody Woodpecker is especially beloved in Brazil. When I lived there, 10 years ago, they would still play reruns on national tv in primetime. They even have a common saying, "mau como pica-pau", which means "bad, like Woody Woodpecker".

    So glad I never watched this movie...it was shit just by watching this. They destroyed the character and he didn't really have much of one, to begin with.

    The Woody Woodpecker cartoons both classic and the reboot in the early 2000's (or was it the late 90's?) has a pretty good sense of humour. The whole joke is Woody is completely nuts. Bonkers. Out of his tiny mind. And is a dick on purpose , and isn't even aware of it. Plus, I just get rubbed the wrong way when someone says "Hey look! It's Woody Woodpecker" and I don't let anyone say that to me, honestly the last time someone said that to me I'd had enough. So I took a reaaaaallllllyyyyy sharp stick and "pecked" the fucker's head until he said "I'm sorry! I'm sorry! I'll never make fun of anyone's name ever again!" Then I punched him in the face knocking him unconcious. He was in a coma for 3 weeks. He never messed with me or anybody ever again, but I digress. Woody Woodpecker is a damn funny cartoon character. But this movie is an insult to every cartoon enthusiast everywhere. The toilet humor is a million points against it, but the backstory about the "God of Chaos and Mayhem" I thought was pretty cool. What I don't get is: Why can't anyone realise that cartoons, whether aimed at kid or adults are not just for kid or for adults. Cartoons that were originally meant for kids can be for adults and vice versa. Animation is for everyone. And really I don't care how bad this movie is or was. No matter how bad a story is or how good, there is something to be gained from the experience. I don't care about the criticism. I don't care about the quality of the film/t.v.show/game/book etc. I just want to be able to enjoy what I use to entertain myself in peace. The only exception to this is a story like things or Manos the hands of fate. If nothing is happening and nobody is doing anything, then it's not worth your time or mine or anybody else's. I'm the Review guy, I choose not to care so you don't have to.
    P.S. please be offended you whiny crybaby asswipes, you know you want to eat because you choose to. Either enjoy what ur doing and STOP trying to ruin everything for everyone or fuck off and eat literally shot until you physically explode. People who do nothing but argue and hate one everyone and everything do not deserve to live. Please never breed and GROW THE FUCK UP!

    Hey guys, we don't really know the whole story on the negative Channel Awesome situation. None of us were there to witness it. My sister did meet Doug Walker one time and he was very nice to her. I think maybe Doug and Rob Walker aren't at all guilty and are being forced to remain silent about the truth of the real abusers. Besides, you guys shouldn't be too hard on the Nostalgia Critic, especially since it could cause him to go into depression and commit suicide. None of you would want that, right?

      Back in late March former employees of CA said on social media about mismanagement over the years (especially during filming of To Boldly Flee) to the ceo Mike Michaed. Which caused all but Nostalgia Critic, Cinema Snob, and Guru Larry to quit CA. The channel also lost 60,000 subscribers, but it was forgotten by a month in a half, because Doug and the others kept making videos.

    I Hate Everythings review of this during Search for the Worst was way better; it seemed to describe the fundamental issues with the film far better (compare how both of them discuss the scenes with Woody assaulting the workers and causing the trailer to explode), and got less dragged out into random tangents and nonsense. Generally, for a full view on exactly how awful this movie is, see this one, I Hate Everything, and RebelTaxis reviews; if you only have time for one, make it IHEs, as he seem to have the clearest grasp on issues like the tonal clashes in the exploding trailer scene.
