  • What is the best and worst X-Men movie? Support this week's charity - pipfilm.com/ Animation by Kritken - ee-tv.com/username-TheKritken X-Month logo by - ee-tv.com/username-Grid17Productions

    • Ironically Daredevil and Hulk were released in theaters the following year.

    • Channel Awesome, do The Spongebob Squarepants Movie 1 & 2 review! Plizzzzzz!!!!!!!

    • The best one is X-Men: Days of Future Past; while the worst one is X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

    • I can tell this guy can take down Thanos

  • Why does the third installment of every franchise always suck or end up being worse than the first two movies😭

  • Logan is a great fucking movie

  • Speaking of Animal Farm, have you ever thought of reviewing the TV movie adaptation?

  • Do the whole series

  • Review Daddy Day Care!

  • ~ Best one they ever made ...

  • Now do x men 3 the last stand

  • Nostalgia Critic has become nostalgic for me. I use to binge watch him when I moved into my first apartment and had no TV lol

  • "Xavier couldn't have lifted the plane from the inside?" Doug, Xavier can't even move his legs with his powers, why the hell would he be able to move a jet?

  • I do not think I have ever heard the line "The advantage is mine" before.

  • Kind of miss the days when X-men characters have enemies that are actually at par with their powers. The movies miss a lot of these stuff and I thought we got something going with magneto and Sabretooth

  • Can you do kingdom of heaven?

  • Mystique is Marvel's Resident Office Slut, look how many baby daddies she had in the comics! Jennifer Lawrence did a great job portraying that character aspect in First Class.

  • X-2 is pretty dark

  • Dragon heart after the X month

  • If you were to rename this movie, what would you name it?

  • The cuts during his complaints were the best XDDD

  • You forgot to add this to the Nostalgia Critic playlist.

  • I like the opening animation for x-month

  • Hi, critic. I really like your videos, and I like your style of narration, but, unfortunately, I do not understand English very well (American?). There is one channel that broadcasts your videos and through which I can enjoy your reviews. This channel was banned, although it made a very high-quality translation. I do not know whether you will read this or any of your team. I very much hope that you will see this comment and help the blocked channel, because once you have agreed to translate your videos. The channel is called Студия Озвучки ДжоШизо. If you do not want or can not do this, then I really ask you to make Russian subtitles for your videos, because in Russia there are a lot of people who love you. Sincerely, your fan from Russia.

  • This is the best of the original trilogy you fucking idiot. I'm sick of you making fun of good movies. The Jurassic Park sequels except for the 3rd one are good movies. Small soldiers? Good movie. Jack? A fucking good movie but because now you people hate it.


  • Has anyone told him Rogue gets her powers from Captain Marvel? Like, seriously, come on.

  • This is practically the best xmen in the original trilogy.

  • 4:55 where that clip from? that shit's hilarous! XD

  • please do a review of Ever After

  • Batman: Gotham Knight. It’s like the animatix, but with Batman

  • You do realize Rogue couldn't originally fly right?

    • Rogue's flying ability actually comes from Captain Marvel Miss Marvel at the time

  • fuck you nostalgia critic

  • Frosty!

  • All the X-Men movies are overrated, even X-2.

  • Give me my bribe money back you slackers!

  • Unrelated to X-Men: You’ve reviewed highly-requested bad animated films like Norm of the North, The Emoji Movie and The Boss Baby. Critic...it’s Wonder Park’s turn now. That movies supposed to be so bad it doesn’t even have a credited director. Review Wonder Park.

  • This doesn’t really change my opinions about the movies I still view em as Classics Heck I still Look at X-Men; Last Stand as one of my favorite X-Men movies....But it’s hard to pick Favorites when pretty much every X-Men Movie is Great in some way

  • What did Nostalgia Critic mean by the cameo that will age great? I know that’s Beast but what does he mean? Is he talking about the actor playing him?

  • I always understood the Logan/Mystique scene was just Mystique fucking with Logan's head


  • What in name's god was that commercial?

  • I really appreciate you guys making the ads entertaining as heck to watch, so I don't just skip them like on a lot of channels.

  • Also could these movies please get a proper reboot? The X-Men are really cool!

  • That ******* Garfield bit had me rolling!!!

  • X2 is the best of the trilogy for me. It's more enjoyable than the other 2 movies. Has a stronger and more Satisfying story in my humble opinion. Not saying it was the perfect Xmen movie by any means but Maybe if it was tied to a stronger Trilogy it'd be more fondly remembered 👍

  • We'll miss how se existed

  • Hey Critic, why haven’t you reviewed Snow Dogs yet?

  • What, no Jason Bourne related joke? Brian Cox and makes a kick-ass mind wiped assassin?

  • Like with the first X-Men movie review, I don't think the criticisms used here really justify the negative attitude used throughout the review. Minor inconsistencies and deviations from the comics aren't really big deals, and I'd say this still stands as one of the best superhero-movies to this day.

  • Do the Valor for a charity. It helps the homeless.

  • 😆😅😅😁😀😊☺😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • are you guys doing last stand?

  • 9:53 that joke doesn't work, like at all. Singer is a pedophile, he likes skinny lithe young boys, not big hairy men with old ass briefs.

  • Doug "I'm smarter than everyone because I see problems with movies everyone else is too STUPID to notice, even though I don't know or understand anything about what makes a good film" Walker

  • i liked it. too bad they botched the phoenix thing.

  • Well they pulled the freaking X out of the xmen on the film title so i guess this draw the attention a little more than some anticipated!

  • "Ew, that's what you meant you have blue balls" I died xD

  • Ignition works by turning a key. Jab a knife into the key slot, bypassing the notches for the key. Turn. Once again, Doug being an idiot.

  • Uh.... discounting the Xavier thing but it is clear that without Jean inside the jet it would still be pretty heavy... so that would not work.

  • Is..is anyone else kinda weirded out seeing Doug in 60 FPS?

  • Is h gonna harp on the "but Rogue isn't flying!" thing in all movies?

  • There would be no problems with Magneto if they had made an armored glass prison.

  • Apparently Bryan Singer didn't want to make superhero movies, to the point that he banned comics from the set.

  • Why don't you just put the end credits AFTER the charity shoutout? I hate that there's no music at the end anymore.

  • Ayy Critic Animal Farm is one of my favorites too!

  • Your next video should be why DC and Marvel are so different when it comes to movies. Like why Marvel can make great movies while DC, which can make great trailers still make some flops. Like how if DC made cyborg more smooth or simple in design they could make it easier to animate by having him wearing a mocap suit and make a scene look more natural in Justice league were Flash and Cyborg fist bump and it looks awkward.

  • I don't want Audible now.

  • Can you do a nostalgia critic video reviewing “ Robots”

  • Wait, didn’t wolverine and cyclops hate each other because of their love for Jean gray??

  • No, Xavier could not have lifted the plane from inside. Or outside. He's a telepath, not a telekinetic.

  • I’m a huge X-Men fan and it would take ages for me to list everything that’s wrong with this franchise. So, I’ll stick to two fucking gripes: No Rogue and Gambit. Do I even have to expand on that? Sure, it was fine to allow Nightcrawler to express his canon religious beliefs. But *GODDESS FORBID* they allow Storm to do the same! And don’t get me started on the Phoenix-- Okay, okay. I’ll stop.

  • Say what you will, Iceman's *hot* Yeah I know, bad pun

  • Please do both the red Dawn movies

  • Sponsor The Blk Tux And make a joke say as a joke “Nostalgia critic wears the worst suit”

  • Man have we really had a turn around where people are now hating on the OG X-Men trilogy. Yes the third is very lackluster (but still a decent conclusion to the trilogy) but these films despite there faults and flaws were so important to helping people take comic book movies seriously. Yes you have Blade, but that film is always gonna be held back by people's low view on horror films. The OG X-Men trilogy (especially the second film) still hold up pretty damn well even today.

  • Angry little nerd complaining from mommy's basement because this is the biggest problem of his life, how about letting those comics go and this movie obviouslly, and go live your life !!Actually whine about a movie like a man child that you really are....pathetic really!

  • Have they ever explained why they won't touch Barbie movies?

  • Anyone get the impression that during the Audible plug Jeff Bezos was just off camera holding Doug at gunpoint?

  • OMG NOSTALGIA CRITIC IS TRENDING!!!!!!!!! 😨😨😨😨😨 Congrats Doug!

  • This is #48 on trending

  • the plastic prison is such a dope scene

  • Aside from multiple acts of child sexual abuse, X2 is the worst thing Bryan Singer has done.

  • What's the name of the music that plays during the Audable ad?

  • Review X Men last stand XD

  • Is it me or NC that has changed, cause I feel like a lot of his recent videos have had a lot of issues with his criticism.

  • Oh, superheroes movie...

  • 24:29 - 24:42 Cyclops: "This day could literally not get any worse." Wolverine: "Have fun raising Superman's bastard!" Cyclops: "Da-F#*&?!"

  • So, fighter jets chasing the heroes through a multitude of tornados is boring? What the fuck has he been watching?

  • 19:25 Thats actually a good question I haven’t thought of!! I guess they aren’t really bad characters, just that if any of us met them in real life, we’d probably wanna beat the shit out of them.

  • in the half time add... why is douges face pain... ;0; why....

  • also what did these goddamn movies do to rogue! she used to be awsome!... now shes just a moody teen, goddamnit! the writers on this series are a fuckin cancer!

  • ah yes the film that started nothing, maintained the one theme of the xman series ever cared to keep, if its not broken brake it and reboot the continuity again, and of course the set up for one of the most boched underwelming characters in one of the most underwelming heelturns in comic history.... be very afraid people....

  • Channel Awesome , please review Logan.

  • Some of us like the old Xmen 2. 26 minutes of wrong.

  • The scene with Bobby's parents is meant to not have the audience get fond of them. It's a whole metaphor of how homosexual kids feel when they come out and their family rejects them (and the director had Ian McKellen share his experience about it to make it more realistic, if I remember correctly). "Have you tried not being a mutant?" is the same as "Have you tried not liking boys?". Hence why they are emotionless when they look down at their son as he leaves -- he feels betrayed, and they feel distant because they don't see him as one of them anymore.

  • I never understood Jean's "sacrifice" at the end of the movie, either. At the time when I first watched it, I though Jean was only doing it to look cool rather than for any real practical reason. And I never understand the epilogue, which I thought had NOTHING to do with what the story and felt out of place, until you pointed out that it was meant to mirror the epilogue of Wrath of Khan. Having learned that, the epilogue makes even less sense, because it doesn't feel as emotionally effective as Wrath of Khan's. I understand the plot point of having Jean disappear so that she would return as the Phoenix in the next film, they could've come up with a higher risk scenario for Jean to make her disappearance more poignant. When it comes to these X-Men films, there a lot of great ideas, and excellent choices of actors, but the implementations of the ideas and stories always come across as strange and confusing for me. They messed up Lady Deathstrike, but at least William Stryker and Nightcrawler were done well.

  • The claw starting the car is a thing that could happen but it'll only work once I guess.

  • And Mystique walking around completely naked is still stupid.


  • I assume you never read the comics. Its okay. You are canadian.

  • Mystique is clearly trying to fuck with Logan's head during the tent scene. I'm not sure how you didn't pick that up.

  • Senator Kelly looks like Jerry Springer.
