My Favorite Time-Waster

I blame my ex-boyfriend. He's the one who introduced me to this guy, back a few months ago when I was having a very bad day and needed a laugh.
Well, I got a laugh, all right. In fact, I got a lot of laughs. Too many, considering how much work I have had to do and exactly HOW EASY THIS SITE MAKES IT TO WASTE A LOT OF TIME.
They're a bunch of videos made by a guy who calls himself The Nostalgia Critic. Essentially what he does is take a bunch of movies and TV shows made in the 1980s and 1990s, and he rips them to shreds. Most of them make it all too easy-- there were a lot of really bad movies made in the 1980s and 1990s. But the Nostalgia Critic does it in such a way that you are laughing hysterically at what he says, then at how the movie proves him right, then more at what he's saying about it. He just rants and rants...and it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life.
Oh, and then, if that's not bad enough, there's also The Nostalgia Chick, who rips on movies that were predominantly marketed to girls. She's not quite as good as him, but she's still insanely funny. However, in my opinion one of the funniest nostalgic rants on the site is the Critic's and the Chick's joint review of a movie I have actually seen, called Ferngully.
Between the rants and the top 11 lists, the videos on ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com are the perfect way to enjoy a belly-aching laugh and kill a lot of time.
