What better way to kick-off the new year than with a brand new film review of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith by Mr. Plinkett on RedLetterMedia.com (Well, Chudd found a way last night with two Irish Car Bombs, a couple glasses of whiskey, a glass of zinfandel, a bottle of Dos Equis and a cheap cigar… he’s currently recovering on the couch…)?
Like many other fans, I was very disappointed with the Star Wars prequels. I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this, but I kind of wish Lucas would call it all a
mulligan and just remake them, but this time maybe let someone else sit in the director’s chair. It’s not that I’m a film elitist, or unwilling to accept new Star Wars films, it’s just that these films were so tragically bad! Even as far as bad films go they were bad (at least in Show Girls you got to see some tits). In fact, Phantom Menace is now my standard for bad. Every film I watch is through the lens of “better or worst” than Phantom Menace and it doesn’t take much for a film to achieve better (the only film I can think of right now that was worse was Battlefield Earth). However, at least we did get one good thing out of the millions of dollars and man hours put into producing these fucking amazing disasters, and that thing is Red Letter Media’s entertaining and insightful reviews. These reviews take a very interesting and critical look at the making and final product of possibly the greatest cinematic let down ever. So, grab a cold beverage, comfy chair, and maybe some hot pizza rolls, and watch the best damn film review your ever going to see. Enjoy!
