Oh joy! It’s that time again. Time for another rousing review from Mr. Plinkett of Red Letter Media.
Who’s this Plinkett fella? Well, he’s a YouTube sensation best known for outrageously long and incredibly harsh movie reviews. This isn’t some uneducated hack who prattles on about why a movie is bad. No, this expositor is well versed in the process of storytelling and film making. His comments and analysis are well constructed and valid in point. Now, his stroke victim like voice may be a bit of a turn off, but rest assured, it’s all part of his sch-tick. He’s all about conveying the idea that even an idiot could understand how stupid a movie is.
Very seldom do I look forward to anything on the Internet anymore, but when Mr. Plinkett comes around with a new review… I’m sitting’ Indian-style, with my shirt pulled over my knees, listening in awe.
Today’s review is rather interesting though, as it’s out of the norm for Mr Plinkett. I mean, this is the dude that delivered feature-length video takedowns of the Star Wars prequels, detailing why each film failed. I would never expect him to say something favorable about a movie. But here he is…giving glorious praise to Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope. Impossible!
I guess, when you think about it, the original Star Wars is a damn near perfect film. Same goes for Empire. It only makes sense for Mr. Plinkett to complete circle. To discuss the bad and applaud the good.
Have a listen to the audio commentary track below. As you might expect, Mr. Plinkett gives his analysis, but digresses a great deal. A very bizarre man of comedy and truth. Enjoy!
