About Doug Walker

Creator of 5 Second Movies, Nostalgia Critic, Bum Reviews and more.


  1. I laughed my ass off at the egoraptor joke but im not sure if that was a mean spirited joke or not given the fact that this whole episode seemed pretty condescending and the skit was in no way a genius satire or worth making such an overblown point over but eeeehhhhh whatever i got the review to the sequel so meh

  2. So when will we get a new Casper review? There’s like 3 other movies that are even worse then the original.

  3. The next episode is gonna be amazing!

  4. I watched the first movie because of Sarah Michelle Gellar and the fact that I loved the scooby doo cartoons as a kid… I think my fav was the headless horseman episode. I never really cared for the movies poor execution that could have been either funny or clever. LOVE psych haha just finished watching all the episodes again. But i am fairly certain they did go through the motivations of many of the culprits. shrug* still great review!

  5. Scooby Doo 2 was my favourite movie as a chid and i was happy to see Doug review it but to see Psych reference….. that just made my whoe week 😀 I love Psych and this was hilarious thank Doug and crew!

    Velma can’t be a lesbian, what lesbian would let Fred order her around?

  7. anyone else waiting for the past and future versions of the critic in the episode?

  8. I heard then the pron parody was better, someone for confirm ?

  9. Doug should’ve said “people in their 30s and 40s”, not “people in their 20s and 30s”, cause let’s be honest… a 20something now doesn’t remember the 80s, the 90s are more their bag.

    Also: Doug was born in 1981, he’s just barely not a Millennial

  10. Velma doesn’t need that hashtag, because it’s already happened. Ever seen Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated? She actually did get a girlfriend in that series.

  11. Wait, this movie stopped my from any respectful job and sustained income? Pooh. I was at that age where I’d like anything with the name Scooby-Doo on it. Welp, guess I better brush up on my chippendale injurie knowledge.

    • Actually now that I think of it, I remember liking this sequel but disliking the first film. I guess because it had more homages and references to the original show? Also I was pretty young so I was kind of upset when one of the sort of main characters turned out to be evil in the first movie. I wasn’t aware of his reputation…I still don’t really get it now…

  12. I know I’m late to the discussion, but I still gotta ask…

    Why does NC insinuate that Velma is a lesbian?

  13. If Pokemon is stupid, that makes Ninja Turtles idiotic.

  14. More bitching about CGI vs. practical effects. Yay.

  15. This is really great
    Its good to see this hell angel again
    Psych is an awesome series
    This is crap a mean they have a museum and they are popular
    Seriously why do people think Velma is a lesbian?
    I do wonder why did the police did nothing in the movie
    So what will Roger do next what was his plan?

    Common its clearly not that bad of a movie actually the Dora stuff will make the kids dumber not this movie

  16. I just checked, because I have nothing better to do, and apparently the cartoon version of Velma has had not one, not two, but eight male love interests over the course of the franchise.

    No girls, although one of the guys looked suspiciously like a version of herself from a gender-flipped alternate universe, but with a different name because otherwise that would be weird.

    If you’re wondering, Daphne had ten (other than Fred). One of whom was Dick van Dyke. Ew…

  17. Coming in late, but I would like to point out (a) it’s kind of neat that Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have been married since 2002 (the year the first movie came out), and (b) Matthew Lillard kills it as the current regular Shaggy voice actor.

  18. Critic, for one of your next WTR’s I want you to consider the following ideas:

    1. That one crossover between Scooby-Doo and Johnny Bravo.

    2. The New Scooby-Doo Movies, which was a Scooby-Doo TV series that had hour long episodes of Scooby and the gang teaming up with various guest stars such as Dick Van Dyke, Don Knotts, the Addams Family, and even Batman and Robin.

  19. Normally, I would be annoyed about trying to FORCE a character into a particular sexuality, but this time, yeah, you’re completely right about Velma.

    • What’s funny is that James Gunn wanted her openly a lesbian in the first movie, so Seth Green was probably forced into it by the executives because they finally found out everyone read Velma as a lesbian. Give it a decade and she’ll probably be out.

  20. Aotrs Commander

    I actually liked this one, as far as it goes. But then again, I DIDN’T like the earlier Scooby-Doo animated shows; especially Where Are You? even as a child. (I found the one with Scrappy just about watchable.) The only Scooby shows I’ve ever actually liked where 13 Ghosts (because Scrappy and Flimflam and actual ghosts) and the more recent (and, I think, unquestionably best) Mystery Inc. So I’m sort of coming from an odd place.

    (And I when I watched this movie, it was without really trying to turn my brain on and solve the mystery anyway.)

    These days, I might have done that automatically, of course, more because of the several years of watching Funny Internet Reviewers (and dissecting MLP episodes on my local forums) and I’ve watched a great deal more CSI than at the time…!

  21. This is the best episode in years and I like the movie. I like both of them.

  22. Have you seen the series of 52 episodes of Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated?

    If you did, can you review it or make a summary of it. I believe is the better or just the best series a Scooby Doo show can be. It is silly, somewhat realistic, it can be dark at times, mature content and best of all it has a plot!!! You can check it out, hoping to see a video of it in a future,


  23. Velma is a lesbian? I never knew that! Or is that some head-canon that Doug made up?
