feeling critical

So for my English Composition class a few days ago, we were asked to read a series of essays and respond to them. There was one in particular I disliked, so my response was rather whiny and full of complaints. About halfway through, I wanted to point out that I realized how whiny I was being, so I had a sentence,

"I feel incredibly critical and cynical about this essay, but there are still more things that bother me."

I was talking to one of my friends about it, and he says it sounds wrong to him to say "feel critical" or to say "feel cynical about" something, but these phrases sound completely natural to me. Thoughts?
