Less Humorous than "Nostalgia Critic", but Still Entertaining
10 August 2012 | by michael_the_nermalSee all my reviews

"The Nostalgia Chick" is an online film reviewer who is located on the same website as "The Nostalgia Critic", but her style is markedly different from her namesake. One gets the impression that she takes reviewing films a lot more seriously than "The Nostalgia Critic". One hint is that she rarely reviews films in character; that is to say, she reviews movies straightforwardly as herself, rather than as a fictional persona. She also does not dress in a distinctive costume as does the Nostalgia Critic; the only hints of a distinct "identity" seem to be her pigtails (she once sported a bow tie and Goth makeup, but discarded them early on in her program). The Nostalgia Chick's main appeal is the academic approach she takes to reviewing movies; in contrast, the Nostalgia Critic attempts to appeal to a broad audience through comedic acting and skits. She presents each review like a mini college lecture, complete with a structured analysis of plot and theme. If this sounds too dry, the Nostalgia Chick always injects sarcastic wit and humor into her reviews, preventing them from seeming like genuine college lectures. It helps to think of the Chick more as a really funny and clever graduate student rather than a stuffy tweed-jacketed, grey-haired professor. Those who are liberal arts majors at America's great institutions of higher learning will be instantly hooked to the reviews of "The Nostalgia Chick", in particular English and Film majors. Oddly, the Chick chooses to review movies that are remarkably similar content-wise to those of the Critic: "family films" and animated movies from the 1980s and 1990s. A few online reviewers have criticized the Nostalgia Chick for wasting her prodigious intellect on superficial family fare which does not merit the detailed analysis she gives; still, viewers might see the irony of giving term paper-style reviews of facile kiddie cartoons as charming and entertaining.

"The Nostalgia Chick", like "The Nostalgia Critic", combines the visual art of Youtube entertainment with the biting wit and satire of written sources (humor-based Internet film and TV review sites targeted towards a young adult audience, like the Onion AV Club, but also earlier humor magazines like SPY Magazine and the National Lampoon). By combining intelligence and humor to her reviews, "The Nostalgia Chick" is sure to draw in a large audience of primarily college students. Highly recommended for young and older adults.
