Mr. Plinkett has his revenge upon Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Friday, December 31, 2010

It's here. Like something that slouched toward Times Square waiting to be born, it arrived before the final moments of 2010. What I'm talking about is Red Letter Media's highly anticipated review of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Mr. Plinkett, Red Letter's adorable movie critic/serial killer, is back with the review we've all been waiting for. We know he's going to have a very sharp knife, and we know that it's not just that girl in the corner of his basement that's going to see the blade.

What I love about Plinkett's reviews is that they're a fusion of satire/send-up of the fanboy culture and that they're also well-thought out critical analysis of pop culture entertainment. His reviews of Avatar and the first two Star Wars prequels, as well as the Star Trek films, are loaded with comedy and bullseye examination of why these film fail or soar on a storytelling level. Remove away the awesome special effects and spectacular computer generated creatures and environments and what do we have? The same things that separate the good movies from the bad ones: acting, competent directing, set design, cinematography and the all-important screen story.

Red Letter Media's review for Revenge of the Sith is in three parts. If you've got some time to kill before or after the glitterball in Times Square falls and rings in the new year, here's your ticket to ride. Be prepared: the entire review is an hour and fifty minutes long.

Unlike having to watch any of the prequels, watching any Plinkett's don't make me want to pull out my hair or constantly check my watch.

Of course Lucas is to blame for the movies being awful, what with dodgy plots, shoddy and boring direction, and truly awful dialogue, but really, everyone involved shares that blame because no one would tell him it was crap.

One of the telling parts for me was the whole "walking and talking" and "frame / reverse frame" sections, then the comparison of the Anakin / Windu scene with the Kirk scene from ST:09.  I had never thought of it like that before, but it was spot on!

I watched these yesterday, and laughed my ass off.  I forgot how funny they were.  Also watched his reviews of the new Star Trek and First Contact.  I almost chocked when he was talking about the flesh melting coolant being behind breakable glass.  "Shouldn't that be covered in Titanium or something?"

We were watching Al-Quaeda, and all this time our security services should have been keeping watch on Jakester's throbbing nutsack!-Dalton's chin dimple

Laughed my ass off too, not only because these reviews are so funny but so succinct in how we all feel about these movies. It's like hearing your brain, confused by these movies until now, say, "Yeah, that's it! THAT'S IT!! That's what's so fucking wrong with these god-awful films!" And then you laugh some more.
