    The beginning of this review has gotta be the worst opening to anything since the horrific opening to the "South Park" episode 'dances with Smurfs". Open an episode/review/movie/what-have-you with a scene of horrific violence (on- or off-screen) so that it causes people to immediately watch something else. That's real smart.
    Oh, ang Doug has absolutely no idea to do aesops correctly, without resorting to manipulation.

    Every positive thought you have from your childhood can be destroyed by this channel.They hate things you love on purpose. If you love something, take care of it, make it last, do whatever you can, post comments on forums and be involved. never let this guy change your mind, he will say whatever he can to make money from those who tried much harder than him. He will spread hate regardless of how you feel. This channel is cancer.

    I remember when I was in 1st grade our teacher made us watch this for earth day and I remember 2 things:
    when the red bubble car in at the end showed up, some kid said "That's a cute car."
    and when Ted's mom was showing the lights on the tree someone else said: "wHaT aBoUt SpRiNg"

    Hey critic, with all the success of the MCU, what would you say are the major differences between how marvel comics are being adapted into film, and how DC comics are being adapted into film? Why does DC seem to be trailing so far behind and what kind of moves could they make to show they’re potential. In my opinion they lack trying to catch up to the franchise that marvel has built, so badly that they skipped a Batman movie and went straight to Batman versus Superman. I think they can really show the flexibility of their comics by adapting small comic books stories into films. Movies like under the Red Hood and Son of Batman are wildly popular among fans but these aren’t the type of stories that are being made live action. Anyway If you end up finding this comment, I’m interested in what you have to say on the matter
