Ehh sorry Erod. Still dont like this new style.

It feels like you put too much effort into making fun of characters and making jokes about them.

I preferred it when it was more about analysis and you talking about characters, actors, villains and why they were good or bad. It felt alot more professional to me.

TBF this was a lot better than his BvS Skit and a lot more polished too. I’d only say I’d have liked this to be longer, say 15-20 mins rather than 8 and have involved a lot more meat to it.

I’d say this was another warm-up, and he is definitely getting better. My guess is that once he is comfortable with the higher effects budget he’ll begin mixing this kind of stuff in with his regular analysis.

I hope so, I like his analysis and there was more of it here…

I absolutely agree, this style of show of his really sucks.

Agreed.
I don’t like it even more because I like E-rod so much.

This was better. There were points made that didn’t get overshadowed by the action parts. Those action parts were not so immature, and could actually integrate with the point being made. There was some insight into the character of Deadshot and how he was poorly portrayed. Though it comes across as only a passing mention. An explanation of each character and how well/poorly they hold up in the movie would have expanded on this. Though this style seems to rely on rapid pacing. Like wise there were almost some counterpoints that were only brought up to be just as quickly… Read more »

E-Rod, I’m sorry, but new style ain’t working out for me. All you’re doing is inserting yourself in the movie and basically being a dick to everyone while “acting cool.” I mean, you’re being a dick to member of the Suicide Squad, and you’re getting away with it? I don’t know how powerful you believe the Blockbuster Buster persona is, but you don’t just be an asshole towards Deadshot, Joker, and Harley Quinn and walk away with it unscathed. 6 minutes in, and I’ve just lost my patience. And you represent the fanboys? I know that, but right now, you’re… Read more »

I like the new Style. You can see that a lot of effort went in and the light and effects look great. Only sometimes you can see little problems with the greenscreen, but I think thats just because he is still testig things out. The only thing that I really don’t like is, that he is trying to hard to act serious and cool. That makes everything look to serious and when he treats the other characters with no respect, I felt even sorry for the actors. At that point he just comes of as a dick, wich is no… Read more »

I like the new format. The points you make come across well, and are a lot more abridged given the budget restraints. I enjoy the wish fulfillment of going into the screen and yelling at the characters. It feels very Looney Tunes-esque. I would like to see more of the screenshots appearing at your side, though.

Feedback – Your new show expects that your audience has seen the subject matter to appreciate the content. I never watched BvS and while some of that movie got into the public eye its safe to say that Suicide Squad really didn’t. I’m not getting anything out of this new format because I haven’t watched the movie. Feel free to blame me on that one but if your webshow demands that your fans have a good understanding of everything you cover than that puts up a SIGNIFICANT barrier to entry compared to the old formula. As you can probably tell… Read more »

I’ll also take this time to agree with a few of the above posts–this idea isn’t working and I’ll share why. First off is this new format highlights the biggest problem of the character of the Blockbuster Buster–he’s poorly written OC for fan-fiction. Honestly, he feels like something a freshmen in high school would write. “Hey guy I made this new character: The BB Breaker! He’s the most powerful character ever! He goes into the Suicide Squad and he beats up the Joker, Deadshot, and tells Harley to get lost!! It’s so cool!” No it isn’t. It’s boring, it’s not… Read more »

IMO, he’s kind of regressed. His early reviews had a huge problem with him coming across as insufferably smug and arogent.

Erod your new format is too short and unfocused.

Say what you will about arrow(dont watch it,it sucks),but it has FAR superior suicide squad than this piece of crap.Also,it restraints itself from cramming in harley simply because she is the most popular one.A brief cameo,and thats it.

I feel like even fake Deadshot would have at least gotten ERod in the shoulder but that’s a nitpick. On your criticism of the movie itself, I don’t think the PG-13 rating hurt this movie. I also found The Joker and Harley scenes (while not accurate) interesting. However, yeah, the Joker is useless in the movie. I liked the movie more than any of the other DCEU movies but it’s still a 5.5/10 movie. On your new style… it’s improved compared to the Batman v. Superman video but it’s still something I’m going to have to get used to. I… Read more »

Why is this clown here? Is he funny? No. Is he charming and charismatic? No. Does he offer any form of insightful analysis that is unique from others? No! He’s just a whiny fanboy who can’t accept his opinions are just that: opinions. I don’t even like this movie and even I think this was a crap review.

And yet here you are, watching his videos and commenting on them.

I loved the “old” BlockbusterBuster because it´s been what it´s been. There was no need to change the format in that way. The new show imho would work great as an addition to the original BB. Like one of those “new format shows” once amonth or so. I miss the old format.

Here is a suggestion; either record mask wearing peoples voice seperatly, or add a portable mike inside.the muffling is horrible. like the format though

Guess I’m done watching the BB, I don’t like the NC’s clipless reviews, and this is basically that.

Yet another short video to review the movie. I understand its flaws, even though I still like the movie and The Enchantress, but WHY are the videos so short? I understand you do more quality than quantity, but…are the rest of the videos going to be like this?

Goldstar
Guest
The main problem that I have with this new format is that these episodes are *much* too short. I understand that the eps likely need to be shorter due to the higher production values, and I doubt that anyone wants to watch ERod beating up fictional characters for twenty minutes, but without the thoughtful analyses of the previous format, these shorts just come off as venting, which is OK at first, but simply spewing bile gets old after a while, and ERod’s detailed blow-by-blow analyses were the best elements of the previous series. Honestly, I think that you should do… Read more »

I liked this one better. The BvS episode wasn’t bad, but it coming right after the last original format episode which went after the same movie kind of felt like doing the same thing twice; perhaps those 2 videos could’ve been combined into 1 single video, i.e., Erod could’ve started reviewing BvS the original way, then during the course of the review it would then morph into the new format with Erod leaping into the movies to bust them from the inside while interacting with the characters. On a similar vein, maybe the 2 formats could be combined, part review,… Read more »

I’m out…. Before the format switch I looked forward to the weekends, it meant a new Blockbuster Buster was to be posted. I had been loyal fan for many years and really did enjoy the well thought out reviews. What kept me was the content, not the effects of the reviews themselves. 15-30 min reviews that moved along with the sequencing of the movies (with clips to support the data) works. It gives us more information than we can typically glean ourselves from any rotten tomatoes review. All that said, hope the new format works out for you; but i’m… Read more »

Definitely not going to say the new style is “bad” because there are several things that are done well and likable here.

However, I think if you could combine the cosplay/slapstick with the old clips and commentary, you’d have a winning formula. You know your stuff on cinema, and I think your fans (like myself) enjoy the lengthier discussion format.

Only really good part of it is that they bring fifth Joker..

SG Roadbuster

so let me get this right, the reviewer who criticizes Hollywood for its pointless and terrible reboots, has gone and pointlessly and terribly rebooted his show?

die a hero, or live long enough to become the villain.

CJ-1

Well, that was awfully fast.

Interesting style for a review series… though I don’t think that many people will get much context out of them as they do with your clip reviews.

Winterstar

The movie sucks real bad. But the part about her heart wasn’t a plothole. She got her heart back before her brother died. So his death shouldn’t have affected her.

Sandt21

I have to be honest. I strongly dislike this new style. I’ve been a fan of yours for years, but this is just too much. I skip Nostalgia Critics Clip-less reviews, and I’ll likely do the same here. I’d like it much more if these little skits were in proper reviews like you’ve done for years. I really ope this new style works for you, but sadly, it looks like you just lost a weekly fan of yours

SpikeGal

Please tell me you’re watching the new season of Samurai Jack! Please tell me you are! When it’s done, you now officially have NO MORE EXCUSES for not doing an Honest Review of the show!! I fully expect to see one in the next few months!

StormWolf
Guest

So this is what your reviews are going to be like from now on? That’s disappointing. I was hoping the last one was a one-off because you’d already done one of your usual videos to that movie. But here we are, with another skit instead of a full review. Oh well.

Holy crap! What happened to Erod’s reviews? They turned into horrible pieces of unfunny shit. They used to be very funny and rather informative but this new… “style”… sucks donkeyballs.

CaptainRoland
Guest

Erod you’re starting to suck and really disappoint you loyal fans with this show of just short sketches if that’s the case, no one cares about this new, unfunny and even uninsightful acting show you got. You suck so go to the past glory days or leave this site.
