Status Partially Lost

Cup of Idiocy was one of Doug Walker's (Nostalgia Critic) home movies, which was a compilation of shorts.

Plot

The film is made of random shorts and skits, which are named Battle of Stupidity, Pointless Moments, The Unfit Firing Squad, A Ribbon Show, Late Late So Late Its Early Show, Jonan, and The Last Man on Earth. Each of these shorts were filmed with Doug and his friends. There seems to be an early concept of Chester A. Bum, one of Doug's most famous characters (an overly-excited homeless man who reviews recent movies).

Even though almost the whole movie was shown to the public, there are a lot of scenes that weren't, one of them where someone was punching up clay people.

History

The film was first shown in Nostalgia Critic's review of A Simple Wish.

Later, the film was fully reviewed on The Awesoming DVD where Doug fully reviewed his old home movie.

However, since Doug usually cuts scenes out of the movies he reviews, this may not be the full feature.

In his review of Tim Burton's 2010 Alice in Wonderland, Doug (as Nostalgia Critic) finds a flash drive which may contain Cup of Idiocy (and his room) which he replied "Oh, my God, I thought I had these destroyed after Wilsongate." (referring to the events of the A Simple Wish review).

Fans have been wondering if the actual full movie will be released to the public, which may never happen because Doug doesn't seem to want this to be released.

In the review, nostalgia critic said it was made in "Seattle during the grunge era" so that should hopefully help with the date

I'm not certain myself, but I'd assume it was the time between when nevermind was released and Kurt Cobain's suicide.

I think you guys are looking at it wrong... the biggest key here is that Doug said he made it in 6th grade. 6th graders are typically 11-12 years old, and since Doug was born on November 17, 1981, we could assume that he was 12 through the majority of that school year... so that'd make 1993 the most likely year, right? (disclaimer: it's 1 a.m. and it's entirely possible i made a big mistake somewhere in that)

I'll tell you what the problem is, the site is letting anonymous users comment on here without signing in. Like me! This is letting jerks come in here and start shit, which leads everybody off-track. Look, this wiki has a lot of potential, but holy balls, it's a mess. Why are you guys aruging over Doug's quality when its media that's lost? For that matter, fuck, it's a home movie from 6th grade. Who cares if it's lost? Major films, sure. TV shows, definitely. But home movies? YouTube videos that few people saw? That's stretching it. Why is there even a comments section on a wiki? Not like a talk page like on Wikipedia, but a comments section like this is YouTube or, god forbid, Wikia.

Sorry for the rant, guys; I like this place. It's unique and interesting. I've found some neat stuff here, and like I said, it's got potential. But overall, it's unorganized and in need of a cleanup. Especially when the comments section goes off on Doug Walker, of all people, and even the formatting of the chat is screwed up so that you can't tell who responded to who. I hope things get better.

1. Staff have discussed disabling anonymous comments multiple times in the past, it just hasn't happened yet. I don't know what the current status of that is.

2. This is one of those articles where it's really a grey area over whether or not it's relevant enough to be here. In general, we only accept this type of obscure stuff if it was made by someone who later went on to become famous/well-known. When the article was first posted, I considered deleting it since you can pretty much get the full experience of this "movie" just by watching the review, but it IS made by someone who's pretty well-known across the internet... so, since nobody else has felt strongly about it (yet), the page is still here.

3. When the new site was opened, we DID have talk pages instead of comment sections. As a result, the shoutbox was consistently flooded with endless people asking why they couldn't post comments. A lot of people even wrote us off as paling in comparison to our [redacted] counterpart, JUST because of that. So, now we have comment sections, and on the whole I'd say it was a positive change that's led to more discussion of lost media and even many important finds that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. But you can't please everyone I guess

4. "the formatting of the chat is screwed up so that you can't tell who responded to who" That's just because people forget to click "reply" when they're responding to someone. If people don't screw up then it looks fine

Also @Ryanskii, he already acknowledged that in his comment. I appreciate you sticking up for us but lashing out at anyone giving constructive criticism is unneeded. He makes some good points.

Thank you Kobochat for deleting comments referencing what happened on here a few months ago. I would also like for you to delete my comments on SpongeBob: Re-Hydrated (except for this one: http://lostm...mment-14977). I'm not proud of them anymore.
